This is a fascinating article mentioning how jackfruit (native to India) does in Hawaii, as well as some other general jackfruit information: http://www.gardenguyhawaii.com/2013/04/what-is-jackfruit.html I didn't know you could make jackfruit seed flour as a gluten-free substitute for wheat.

We got a pomelo at Walmart, today, and ate it. This is the first pomelo I've eaten, although I've been aware of their presence for almost twenty years. I had heard they were like large grapefruits. They certainly look like large grapefruits, but they don't smell or taste a lot like them. T...read more

So, I've had an apple intolerance since 2009. I started eating raw apples again recently, and they seem to be healthy for me again. However, I'm noticing that the apples have a lot more flavor and sweetness than I remember! They're like candy.

Store-bought Marie Calendar cherry pie is pretty good, lately. I always prefer the homemade with home-canned sour cherries, but if you're going to buy one, it's a great choice. I don't know what kind of cherries Marie Calendar uses.

So, I'm making some Red-seeded Citron watermelon (AKA Colorado Preserving Melon, AKA Tsamma) crisp. It's basically a mock apple crisp. This is my second time making it.

I first grew the King Winter watermelon in 2016, watered well without black plastic or any kind of mulch. It got a fair amount of small-ish fruits, with dull skin. the taste was like watermelon Jolly Ranchers. The seeds were black. I grew it again in 2017, with drought conditions, unmulched, wit...read more

Navajo Winter watermelon

in Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Here's the first Navajo Winter watermelon that I've eaten, this year. It has a very thick rind (so it's probably a cross). Nevertheless, most of the rind is sweet and approximately the same texture as the inner fruit. It still has winter watermelon skin (in toughness). It tasted great! It was qu...read more

Boiled horseradish greens (end of season)

in Horseradish
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I harvested and boiled some horseradish greens, today. I was expecting them to taste like cabbage! But, no. They taste very unique! They're good. They still taste a bit like good sandwiches, interestingly, but cooking for a good while did take the spiciness out. They're a touch bitter, but not n...read more

Kirkman x Torpeda F1 melon

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
This is from Kirkman melon seeds, but it seems to have been crossed with Torpeda, by some of its qualities. I wonder why it's not striped, though. I guess Kirkman's rind must be dominant, except for Torpeda's netting seems dominant. Anyway, it wasn't as sweet as its parents. It was firm (not ...read more

The seeds are black and smaller than most hlack-seeded winter watermelon seeds. The taste was good, and the texture was excellent. I have a feeling that bo...read more
