Richard - ripe apricots taste wonderful - can't grow them here of course, but when we lived near Johannesburg, the peaches, nectarines and apricots were everywhere.

I'm with Sue on the sorbet and ice cream too - but mine are passion fruit and mango as we are at the height of the season - fruit everywhere, pineapples too.

Hmm ... my passion fruits won't be ripe for quite awhile. But today I did harvest more apricots, two ambrosia muskmelons, and a connecticut field pumpkin. This afternoon we'll make apricot jam and tomorrow pumpkin pie.

This evening I went back to check on the Apricot tree and picked 10 gallons worth (50 pounds!). I guess I'd better get busy removing the pits ...

Pitted, sliced, and packed with a bit of lemon juice: I now have 4.5 gallons of fruit in the refrigerator for Tuesday's cooking extravaganza!

So far I have canned a total of 14 pints of jam, made 6 pies (1 double and 1 quadruple), 4 quarts of sorbet, 2 coffee cakes, and have 8 pints of sliced fruit packed with lemon juice in the refrigerator that I'll probably turn into jam today. The remaining ~10 gallons of fruit on the tree will likely end up in the food dehydrator. It looks like the peaches will be keeping me busy next.

I second that! As things are going, we in Seattle are probably 2 and a half months from our fruits getting ripe. That is, if we can get some decent weather here. Like yesterday was around 70F, right now it's 65F. Oh, well! At least we don't have to turn the air conditioner on. Just have to wear heavy clothing.

Greene:
I don't think so. Cherries have to satisfy some chilling requirements during the winter when they are dormant in order for them to fruit.
I thought here in Salinas we didn't have enough below freezing weather but I tried it and was successful because I did not see a single cherry tree in the neighborhood.
