CR fruit harvest season
« on: June 21, 2022, 10:34:46 PM »
So, we’re off to a good harvest season this year.  What’s really interesting is that some crops are having multiple flowering.  Champedek, and especially durian have seen multiple flowering and thus several generations of fruit on the same tree.  A durian tree might drop fruit for barely a month but we think we’ll have durian from now until November.

We have been eating nice, fat mangosteens and will be picking commercially this Friday for sale at the farm and out Saturday farmers market.

Something interesting is the Brunei cherry.  G. parvafolia is such a beautiful tree and the fruits are tasty and have a bountiful harvest that could go on for weeks.

Coming up will be lots more like Matisia, cherapu, Langsat, longan…..

The Brunei cherries have a sweet pulp and an acidic skin that can be used in cooking. I’ve been toying with the idea of calling them mangosteen cherry since the opened fruit really resembles mangosteen. The seed is very thin and pliable, most people eat it without realizing it.
