When the bats or possums are starting to eat them we know they are ready to be harvested.
This year is a very good Mango Year. We gave also full buckets to our neighbours.
We grow many different kinds of Mangoes. E2R2; Kwan; Keitt; Nam doc mei; Pico and more.
The grapes ripen after Christmas through January. This is a Isabella, which does not need to be sprayed. Grapes must be pruned end of August.
Jaboticaba tree crops four times a year. We eat the fruit fresh from the tree. It has a sweet pulp inside the black skin which we do not eat as it has a bitter taste. Pop the whole fruit into the mouth and spit out the skin.
Bananas and Papayas, here they are called Papaws, are easy to grow. Who has taken a bite out from the papaw? Probably A bird, Possum or a rat!
Believe it or not:
A table, a chair. a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?
