Candy Heart Pluerry


#222

These will be ready for harvest in a couple of weeks, there are few hundred of them.


#223

Any luck with your seedlings trial?


#224

Rich those look very delicious. You did a great job of growing them. I wish those were my trees!


#225

Wow…impressive stuff. I have a feeling that fruit would ripen wayyy late around here. Do you grow Flavor King? When does that ripen in your climate?


#226

You’re the most successful growing Candy Heart Rich. Amazing .


#227

The seedling trial is going very well. I tasted one that was riper than the 18 others, a bug ate part of it, brix was 25, flavor was great! It tasted like Candy Heart (syrupy watermelon), with a complex zest to it. The rest should be ready within a couple of weeks.

Flavor King are starting to turn color, they are at least three weeks out, early August.


#229

Great Job Rich. Hopefully one of these days We all will get some woods of your creation!


#230

OK…so they are late’ish even in your area. If i get rid of some trees maybe i’ll add a Candy Heart in the future.

The biggest challenge in your area, many parts of the country, is cold temperatures when blossoming occurs. They blossom early. A solution might be to graft a stick of what I am working on to dwarfing root stock planted in a large pot with wheels. Wheel it into an enclosure for blossom/frost protection when needed and out for the growing season. Just some thoughts.
