My beloved Aunt Gertie's Gold fruit got blossom end rot. It got it heavily; so, I didn't taste the fruit. However, I was determined not to let it stop me (so, I saved seeds from it, just in case). There are other fruits forming. Hopefully they make it.
I often wonder if seeds from BER fruits will be any more or less likely to get BER than seeds from other fruits on the same plant.
I harvested and ate a fruit, today. It's a lot like a regular yellow/orange beefsteak, except it's more sour/tart. I prefer the taste, but it's not a favorite of mine or anything, especially with the low production with lots of BER.
