many people sell them at the farmers markets here also. they are very popular here. i used to pick my own every spring. my parents used to pack a lunch and we would spend the day picking them.
What does the taste resemble?
difficult to say. its its own taste. very rich for a green. its a taste unique to itself.
Love ferns, so I wanted a couple of these just for the looks. I asked a couple times now and no one can really describe the taste. Must really be unique. Do the deer target them? I know here where I live the deer only eat things I’ve spent money on.
Well, I brought home a new goumi bush that still had some fruit on it. So, I didn’t technically grow it, but I own it and ate it.
ive never seen any browsed on but they must. hell, i eat them raw while picking them.
Yesterday evening i found a few heratige red raspberries ripe… and a few sweet scarlet goumi too… May 15… that is 5-10 days earlier than prev years.
Purple mustard greens, icicle radishes, and Black September black currants.
The currants mild and a bit ‘mealy’…
not as pungent as Titania,
and some others.
@SoCalGardenNut … most… possibly all… blackberries… will turn black but still be shiney / glossy for a day or two… then when nice and ripe they lose that shine… and get dull. They are ready to pick then for max sweetness and flavor and will be a bit softer too.
They look like jewels, delicious jewels!
Well, I didn’t take a picture, but had another Gold Rush apple from last year’s first crop. It is still hard, spicy, juicy and holding at 16 Brix. Kept in the 'fridge in a loosely tied plastic bag. Mighty fine.
This was full to the brim yesterday…maybe 2 pints? We finished them up today and will pick more tomorrow
First blueberry…and first serviceberries yesterday…eaten straight from the bush/tree.
