Default CA Gold Harvest

A few days ago I cut the bunch of CA Gold's that had been growing in the greenhouse over the winter. I wanted to let them stay for a few more weeks but a few of them were starting to turn yellow so I figured it was time to take them down. Weight 34 lbs.

Good Job!
How does it taste?
I am just starting to grow them.
Are they hard to grow? It will be my first experience.

Richard, that looks great! I may get a bunch from mine by next summer. I've had it in the greenhouse all winter, and it's ready to go in the ground. Thanks!

California Gold was given the moniker by Jeff Earl (jearl).
Here's an oldie but goodie thread:
Last California Gold of the year!!!
There's probably some others listed at the bottom of this page.
I would contact him, for starters...
