was at Treesnmore the other day, picking out some of the last yellow grumixama plants that Mike had in 7 gal....( and he had some real nice 3 gal plants already fruiting)
He had about 100 producing trees, and some were loaded with fruit (and it was late in the season I thought?), and I was able to sample the fruits of several trees...I must admit that he has the best grumichamas I've ever tasted.
It's nice to be able to taste the fruit of the tree that you are buying...because some grumichamas are just not that good...having a mealy texture, with a flavor that is not too sweet.
I'm really looking forward to when Mike starts grafting his orange grumixama...out of all his trees, there is only one orange fruited specimen...it's right next to a common yellow fruited type, and the color contrast is stark...I was skeptical at first, thinking that it might just be a sunburned yellow fruited type...but this was clearly not the case...both trees, yellow and orange fruited, had exact same growing conditions.
maybe he should name this variety "Michelangelo"...because it's a real rare masterpiece and wasn't that the name of the ninja turtle with the orange colored head band?
