I’ve been waiting patiently for these to ripen before eventually realising this pinky greeny state is as far as it goes. I’ve eaten these and other varieties similar to them in Spain so should have realised but the plant was a gift and so I didn’t know quite what I was going to end up with. Traditional varieties like these with deep grooves and irregular shapes are rarely grown commercially. They have little juice and sliced very thinly and laid out on a plate with a little olive oil, they look very attractive and taste delicious.Unfortunately these two both had a dry spell while they were growing so have a few cracks but they are so big it won’t hurt to cut these parts off.
Harvesting Heirlooms Seeds From My Home Garden
I strive to grow a wide range of different plant at my home. One of the main reason for this is some I can build a diverse seed library. So in this video I show some of the seeds that I recently harvested and some cool verities I’m looking forward to harvesting.
