Compared to the rest of the eastern hemisphere, western Europe took a long time to move on from medlar to a more palatable fruit: apples. That was a 1,000 years ago.
Just got 2 new trees:
Black Amber plum
Rojo Brillante persimmon… They are small because it’s the first time this tree fruits but they are like a very sweet persimmon pudding!
It’s really good… now imagine when they get big!

A new apple espalier. The outrageous sun and heat this past summer, killed the right half of my espalier. Really sad. Buying a new one!
That’s really sad… well good luck to your new plants!
Pretty apples. Do you spray much, or is your climate just good in that disease and bug damage is low?
Thanks! No i don’t spray and never did. My area is an old apple production area, so i think they just like it… no bugs or too important diseases. Just a lot of birds so i have to bag everything!
Got it. Bagging is your secret. Still, nice-colored apples.
