do you even SweeTango, bro?
0.99 each at my local grocery store right now. Been eating at least one a day.
Yeah, usually pick those at the orchard we go to. Didn't have them at the supermarket last night.
non-fruit, but produce related question...how do you guys store potatoes? The way they're priced basically forces you to buy a 5 lb bag, but I only end up using 4-5 of them before they start turning to mush and growing eyes.
Basement in a box works for me. Dry and cool.
And dark, don't forget dark. That's very important. I keep them in a lower cabinet, they store quite well.
Really digging on SweeTango (Honeycrisp/Zestar hybrid) apples recently. Perfect sweet and sour balance and good texture
Just picked up some Gumdrops on a whim after seeing they came from the Grapery. My assessment, based on the fact that I just absentmindedly shoveled about a half-pound of them down my gullet, is that they are very good.
Free Honeycrisps or SweeTangos at my local grocery this week!
Grocery was out of Envy, do I got a couple Lady Alice and a couple SweeTango. The Lady Alice was crazy good; I’ll have to report back on the other.
Got a gallon of Honeycrisp cider, too. So tasty.
Didn't even know we had a fruit thread. Just here to jump on the SweeTango bandwagon. Damn delicious.
Also been on a golden kiwi kick lately. Would recommend.
My cousin gave me a call a couple of days to ask if I could use any tart / sour cherries for homebrewing, and while I didn't have an immediate use for them, I hooked him up with imperialking who can use them in meadmaking.
Anyone know what varietal these are? They look like Montmorency, but looking for some confirmation.
Yep. My father in law picks a bunch of those every summer in Nebraska for pies. They're Montmorency.
Follow up from earlier today
What 12lbs of Montmorency from Chicagoland look like, destined for use in meadmaking.
Blueberry season is in full force out here in the Willamette Valley. Picked about 10 lbs. of organic Duke & Reka varieties on Saturday. Many more pounds will be picked before the season's done.
Then my local grocery was having a plum extravaganza yesterday. Picked up like 4 different varieties.
This is a Red Raven. Holy shit! So sweet & juicy. Probably the best plum I've ever had. I need to go buy a bunch more ASAP.
Ran across RubyFrost apples at the store last night. Not quite as good as Honeycrisp, but still really tasty.
Forgot about this thread - the one that had me at the store buying random ass fruits like 18 times.
Just finished cutting up a 25lb jackfruit. So intensive but so rewarding
