I love the variety - I'm originally Canadian, and the sheer novelty of picking figs in March blows me away sometimes.

And that's just the spring (breba) crop, you should also have another crop of white & brown figs in the Fall !

Your town sure looks like a beautiful place. I hope to visit the area someday with my spanish speaking daughters.

If your still reading this no I don't have an ice cream maker used to but it stopped working so I threw it out. Might buy one soon as it's getting hot and lemons grow fatter and juicier every day! Thats one thing I love about my tree sometimes the lemons hang on for years! Only growing bigger every day! Once I harvested a lemon bigger than a grapefruit! It was one mocho lemon!

Fresh Strawberries!
I bought these plants in Exeter Calif. two years ago. They are a day-neutral variety, but otherwise unmarked.

O.K., now I have to tease you about the Meyer Lemons! Did you know they are really Lemon x Orange ? I would agree that the "Meyer" is great in drinks. However, cooks are taught use the Eureka or Lisbon for that robust lemon flavor. (Lisbon is just a seedless Eureka).
Sorry for the delay in replying Richard - and I can't do the quote thing properly, but yes I did know it was a cross - but so thin skinned and juicy that I can forgive it!

Lorax - what do you do with your granadilla (assuming we are talking about the same thing - 12 inches long with a thick rind and not much flavour in the fruit)? All that comes to mind is candying the rind - not enough fruit to juice unless you have a superior type. Do you cook the rind as a vegetable? My p. vitifolia has taken off to such an extent that I am almost afraid to plant more varieties ( 60ft before I took the machete to it!).

This morning I picked almost 3 gallons of apricots. I'll probably have the same amount ripen each day for the next 2-3 days. Coming up in a few weeks: ripe Green Gage Plums.

With those apricots, my wife Sue made 1/2 gallon of apricot sorbet and I made a quadruple-size apricot pie in a large broiler pan!
