Sanford Curafora
« on: August 28, 2021, 09:04:55 AM »
Besides my Sanford Curafora planted 2020 in ground, I still have one in a pot, which flowered and set two fruits.
When I snipped with the nail along the fruit it smelled a little bit bitter and strong. Now I fear that the taste is perhaps not so good concerning edibility ?
Who cultivates Sanford Curafora, tasted the fruits and can give some informations to fruit specification and taste ?
Thank you Frank

I bought mine in 2018 and it came with one overripe fruit that still tasted ok. It did not fruit in 2019. In 2020, it set one beautiful fruit but as of now, the fruit is still green and rock hard. There is something odd going on with my plant.

Thanks Florian for your information, so I' m glad to hear the fruit seems to be good tasting. For your plant I wish you good luck that the fruits still get ripe. The fruits of mine are still very small, lets see how they grow ? Climate conditions this summer are not very favorable in Germany.
Regards Frank

There are also 2 green fruits on my curafora, which have been hanging for over a year now.... one and a half minimum, if not more

Hello Mikkel, how big are your fruits, do you have pictures ?

It is the first time that it lasts so long. Usually they are ripe in winter.
They have the size of a small mandarine. They could be bigger, but my tree is small.

I have a Sanford Curafora tree. Fruits ripen in early spring. Taste is mandarinelike and good. My tree stands in a shadowy position now. It is still abandontly flowering but fruits do not really want to ripe. I think it just needs more sun.

Thank you Till, so I think for my two fruits I still have to be patient with harvesting, but I' m happy to hear the fruits are good. Also curious how my Sanford in ground will master her second winter 🤔, while the recovering was extremely good.
Best regards Frank

Here's my one fruit. It looks more yellowish on the photo than it actually is.

Florian, when you slice the fruit open it would be nice if you would put a picture of the insides on this thread.  Thanks
