In my opinion Beauty is the best of the Japanese plums.
Yet to taste Beauty, will look out for it @ the farmers market.
July 2018 Berry Harvest.
Anne & Polka Raspberries were good.
Prime Ark Freedom Blackberry was excellent, very sweet, hardly any seeds. Had a hint of bitter.
Mara Des Bois was outstanding, better than any strawberry desert! Also smells amazing.
Queen of the strawberries in my opinion.
Pluots, Pluerry, Peach
Indian Free Peach was very unique.
Candy Heart Pluerry was very sweet.
Flavor King and Grenade was just meh - will work on improving brix for next year.
Did you do enough thinning for the king and grenade? I wonder what else could have ruined the flavor…
Yes, definitely need to do more thinning for next year and planning to try out some tips here to improve brix - https://www.maximumyield.com/building-up-the-brix-for-healthier-nutrient-dense-crops/2/1282
That’s an interesting article.I’ve never taken a brix reading from the leaves.Brady
I have the same problem with my cherries. Squirrels, chipmunks, coons, and birds! They must be thinking I better get these before the human does.
Here are some pics and videos of harvest for the rest of 2018
Fuji apples were really good but I forgot to take pictures / videos
The berries from September/October were delicious
The Meyer lemons were super juicy!
Although the Washington Navel Oranges were plenty and juicy and great quality the brix was way too low
For 2019, I am seriously going to focus on getting the Brix up on some of my fruits…
