The very first Japanese plum harvested from my 150-n-1 tree! Nothing beats the flavor of tree ripened fruits. It isn’t the first fruits of the tree. Cherries came first then an early season Nectarine and then this plum.
This is Asian Beauty plum. It truly developed complex flavors after the heatwave. A little tart skin that gets sweeter and sweeter to the pit. This year it is juicier but sweeter than last year. Enjoy with me!
Next to ripen over the weekend and the next couple of weeks would be the 7 different types of red leafed plums and some green-leafed plums on my 150-n-1 tree. Some of these are already edible but not at their peak flavor yet. The Hollywood plum, Brooks Plum, Vesuvius, purple cherry plums, all can be eaten now as survival food but it isn’t the best time to enjoy them. They’re all ground level.
