It was a good season for plumcots.
The Mesh Mesh Amrah had a pretty good crop, and ripened earlier than usual. Pictured here on the last day of May, part way through the harvest period.
And the Flavorella, always somewhat of a shy bearer, had a better crop than usual (pictured on 5 June).
The Mesh Mesh Amrah has gotten so big (even with my regular pruning) that I can hardly believe that it is the same tree that I dug up, with some assistance from my wife, from our old place in Carlsbad in 2002. (I still had a relatively healthy back at the time.)
Plumcots have such a distinctive flavor–clearly a best of both worlds!
