Perhaps yours are fat--fatter than grocery store specimens. I'm not a very observant person but neither they nor yours seem to busting out of their skins. Though a picture may be worth a thousand words, a personal squeeze and assessment wins over prose and poses hands down. Picking one to test and perhaps savor? Score.

No, the "taste a grape police" would be all over that. I am not a fan of ripe bananas. There, I've admitted that I like firm, green skinned fingers. I also love all other fruit under-ripe (green tomatoes only if fried perfectly) so shoot me. I'm quite certain that's why persimmons have passed these lips but once--immature ones pack a real pucker.

The fingers look as filled in as they are going to get. The marks on the skins say cut me down now. I stopped waiting till yellowing starts when I saw the squirrels licking their chops and rubbing their paws.

Michael,

As I was checking mine today I saw the brown marks on the most mature hand so mine may similiarly be close to "stretch marks" I'll keep and eye on them. By the way it was the Orinoco mat with five fruiting P-stems, the one near the back of the Citrus grove.

Ancient technique for killing Squirrels (I quit counting I think I'm over 250 & they are not wasted), and other animals squatting or attempting to steal my bounty are turning into compost.. :^)
