What fruits did you eat today?


#2987

Had my first KSU Atwood paw paw. No bitterness at all flavor I’d say same as Taylor so similar I’d couldn’t tell a difference. I also went around my Potomac and some fell off of tree whole cluster at branch and one eaten on tree my big one of course. No where near ripe yet.

Ate some prunes that I made from my Imperial Epineuse plums in August. They are freakishly good - sweet, flavorful and aromatic.


#2989

Any stone fruits left on the trees these days?


#2990

No stone fruits by now, only apples, pomegranates, and feijoa left (and a few late figs from the 3rd crop).


#2991

My lone drippen honey that I wrote a while back looked at it today it looked pretty yellow I barely touched it and it fell into my hand. Just a hint of green on the bottom.

Edit: it was brown inside it had gotten over ripe? Hmm am I supposed to pick while there green?

Maru persimmon update: DWN says the harvest window is October 5 to October 30, so today (Oct 17) seemed like a good time. I harvested one bird-pecked fruit. Nicely colored, brown-speckled inside, with several seeds. Astringency was just a slight chalky feel on the tongue after eating - not obnoxious. Another thing is that the astringency seems to vary within the fruit itself, with some parts lacking it altogether. Very sweet, high flavor. So this result is the opposite of what happened last year. We’ll see what happens with the other fruit on the tree.

If you haven’t already and you have the patience, you can thin them aggressively to get a better flesh-to-seed ratio. I tried 50% thinning this year but I can go higher next season.

I tried paw paw and American persimmon for the first time today. They exceeded my expectations and are delicious. I was at red fern farm doing you pick, where there were very few paw paw left on the trees. They told us we are the last group to go through and pick this season. It was a 4 hour drive with kids in the car but it was worth it.

That is quite the harvest of highly regarded varieties.


#3001

Jonagold and Gala apples. I tested one of the Gala.


Not amazing, but as good as the supermarket. They were much better last year. I have already applied K and Mg, and I will not forget to apply next Summer.

Yes it’s just a Wonderful - nothing unusual. First one I have opened this year. Not fully sweet yet but still good.

@Vincent_8B what variety is that mine pretty much have stalled ripening with this cooler weather here in Vancouver wa.
