Almost Ripe

Everything is so late this year - at least two weeks behind I would think. Here are a few of my "earlies", and what with the downpours the last few days and reduced temperatures, taste tests should prove interesting.

First (bottom pic) we have ripe fruit from the Sungold x Mom's F2 Plant 1 - while this cherry was juicy, with nice 'acid' it was rather one dimensional, and skins were tough. But just look at the colour change from previous pic! Thought this one would be light yellow, but ended up almost apricot.

Next (middle pic) is Shtambovy Kartofelnolistny 164, a PL dwarf, with early ripening - now if it just tastes good, it will be a winner.

And finally, another cross, Galina x Grub's Mystery Green F1, and in this instance it appears yellow is dominate over green. Both my plants should be similar as this is first generation. The fun starts in F2 ......
Taste test results any day now ..........
