Russian black apricot crop

My first Tlor Tsiran Black apricot crop. All my other apricot trees dropped all their fruit this year except this one and my mume.

Have either been aromatic enough for umeshu?

I love an aromatic umeshu.

Iíve never tried making anything with the few fruit I get off the mume trees. They bloom from December through March and most years I get no fruit since each wave of bloom gets frozen off. Iíve tried eating a few yellow ripe fruit but too sour. I donít get enough to make the pickled fruit. Just pretty trees.

That's too bad, as the fruit can be pretty good if processed, but it's not really suitable for fresh consumption.

Maybe try mixing into a batch of black apricot anzushu. Anzushu can be as good as umeshu if not better.
