Drove up to East Bay to meet up with a CRFG member who collects and propagates a lot of interesting plants. I tasted my first white sapote (I think this is Vernon)
My wife agrees with the common description of caramel flan, but to me it tastes more like a ripe European pear. I’ll plant a tree and graft a few varieties. It is productive, precocious and tasty, so deserves a spot.
I tried several other fruits and he threw a lot of scientific names at me which I don’t remember now One was this interesting banana-shaped passionfruit.
It has a very pleasant taste/perfume reminiscent of cardamom and sugar. However, it has zero acid and more pronounced seeds compared to Frederick. It is interesting but I will stick with the Edulis for now.
