Yup, that's ripe! What colour flesh is it?

Today, I harvested Figs (Breva-type), Lantana Berries (yum, jam!), and some wild ginger root.

i thought so....keep up the good work!

How many winter chill hours do you have in Miami? (check with a reputable nursery, or perhaps someone here knows)

You might be able to grow the cross-pollinating pair of ultra-low chill (~250 hrs) cherries: Minni Royal + Royal Lee.

If you really want to know, drive around your neighborhood and see if there is one yard growing them or perhaps the next city.

3 apricots I harvested the only three apricot fruit on the branch.



So you see, last summer I grafted it to a flavored king plout but I was surprisedit fruit but only three. But when I saw one with bird bite on it I plucked them and ate it. It was so good to taste for the first time.
One has to notice on the other branch is a grafted white peach .
Luckily, on other branches, there are some white peaches that fruited also but only two fruit. It should be ready in a few days.

And here's the white peach I am talking about. Notice also an apricot branch at the bottom of the fruit and fruit plouts scattered around .



And I have many branches that I grafted apricots and plums on one plout tree.

15 pounds of Green Gage plums and 30 pounds of Saturn Peaches. This will become about a dozen jars of plum preserves (no sugar added), and 1 dozen jars of peach preserves, 2 pounds of dried peaches, plus assorted pies and breads.
