A couple of peach trees are what I want to plant next!
We do have a few wild huckleberry bushes around...they
grow all over the place here. Used to walk down the dirt
road from my house and get up in the bushes to pick them,
but, I don't venture that far anymore since I got a good
case of the redbugs one time!

Yes, I think Timmy would love fig preserves!

To hear my hubby tell it, I make a good jar of preserves! lol

I never liked eating the figs raw either because of that fuzzy
peeling....just like I don't like to eat a peach with the peeling!

I had never seen any "red meat" oranges (as my
hubby called them. They were good though.
Yes, they can have a very red interior. The deeper into the tree and more shaded the orange, the redder they are. Ones exposed to full Sun will not look much different than a regular orange.

Re: Fruit Trees

I have a fig tree and LOVE fig preserves.

If you like strawberry preserves I have a recipe that taste exactly like strawberries. But I prefer fig to strawberry, but the color is beautiful in strawberry.

This will be the third year for my tree and IF the birds would leave them alone I might get enough to mess with.

Re: Fruit Trees

Put some aluminum pie plates in the trees, it is suppose to scare the birds away.

My daddy always did that. But, the birds get wise to that
after a little while!

I love strawberry preserves too!

Have you ever tried figs and strawberries mixed as a preserve
together? Never tried it, but, have heard it's very good too.
