Do you like them now that you've grown up?

Is that the orange with red flesh?
A friend gave us some of those to eat this year.
I had never seen any "red meat" oranges (as my
hubby called them. They were good though.

But no, not particularly. Can take 'em or leave 'em. I'll have a dried fig now and then, maaaybe a fresh one every couple of decades.

But I have always liked Fig Newtons. Go figure!

Re: Fruit Trees

We just planted two plum trees. They were my birthday present. Planning to plant pears next. I love peaches, but I've never seen a peach tree around here that produced anything but hard, small ones.

Also planted a blackberry vine. I can't wait until they all start producing!

No. Haven't seen any, that I can recall. Sounds pretty good, though.

Re: Fruit Trees

Timmy, if you had figs preserved the way my mama used to preserve them, you would love them.....that is if you like hot buttered biscuits. You couldn't taste the fuzzy peel. I have never liked a raw fig.
