What fruits did you eat today?

:open_mouth: wow :open_mouth:


#1445

Yeah. Excited. That’s from 10 bushes though.


#1446

In your climate do the blueberries on a single bush all ripen at the same time so you can just strip them off en masse?


#1447

Not so much. My blueberry season lasts about 4-5 weeks. My wife says she runs her hands through them and the ripe ones drop off into the bucket and unripen ones continue to cling. :+1::heavy_check_mark:

Orange Red Apricot from a graft on a Fantasia Nectarine.About 18 brix. Brady

Look for Asian markets in your area! Trader Joe’s will some times carry them if you have one nearby! I recommend trying longan fruit as well, they are a lychee relative that fruits multiple times a year so much more availibility! I live in a small town and always make a point to travel to the city 3 hours away a few times once lychee season hits!

Jack fruit and Lychee.

Where did you get jackfruit?


#1452

I bought it at the local Asian Market and I am not sure where they bought it from. Florida or Mexico?

We have whole fruit jackfruit for sale in Asian markets here, too. I give you a lot of credit for buying the whole fruit. Dissecting it and dealing with the abundantly sticky sap is what stop me. But the reward is really worth it. Also, if I buy the whole fruit, I am likely to eat the whole thing myself in a very short time. I have not much self-restraint when it comes to food I like :smile:

First of the season, many more to come.

#1456

#1457

I am on a see-food diet. When I see food, I eat!!!

This is the very first apricot to be harvested from my orchard!!! It is also the only one. This Stark SweetHeart apricot only set 2 fruit, but I was surprised to find any on it at all since we had several nights of freezing temps during the bloom period. However, there was an unfortunate incident between a wayward heifer and this apricot tree. The only tree she chose to use as a scratching post was this one. The only branch on which she scratched her knobby head was the one carrying the only 2 fruits. Of course. She broke the branch, I lost one fruit, but I wrapped the branch up as if I was grafting it. It survived and the fruit reached maturity!
I bought this tree for my husband’s birthday in 2015, so it is ‘his’ tree and I wanted him to have the first fruit from it. I left him the fruit and a note this morning and when I got home his note says the apricot was “DEE-LISH-ISS”!!! So I guess it was good. :yum:


#1459

Congrats! So exciting!


#1460

Did you save the pit to eat? This apricot has low amygdalin so it will taste like an almond.


#1461

This hobby is expensive but cheaper than therapy.


#1462

We did save it, but I think I am going to plant it, and use it as rootstock to graft different varieties to. Hopefully we will get a good harvest off it at some point, then we won’t have to fight over the fruits or the seeds. :wink:


#1463

Some plums I grafted a couple of years ago. Don’t know the variety, sweet and the flesh is similar in texture to a peach. The skin is sweet and smooth. I think it is a plumcot.
