Yes, the Meiwa are sweet. Mostly ripe now. So far my coldest this winter has been 14 degrees. Heavy snow collapsed the PVC pipe dome roof on my high tunnel several weeks ago. Repaired it and reinforced it last weekend. The citranges, tiawanica, and Ichang lemons in the tunnel look good. Has been below freezing here for the past two days, with low of 14 and high of 19 yesterday and high of 23 today with freezing rain.
