        Had to finish it off with a pair of pliers :ouch1:

          Peaches and Cherries when in season.
          Banana every day for breakfast sometimes raspberries or blueberries on my porridge.
          Mid morning Apple ,lunch grapes or tangerines for desert ,dinner in evening sometimes melon and or grapes for desert.
          Strawberries when in season.
          Occasional grapefruit and pears.

            I think cherries when in season are probably the most fruit I eat, followed by grapes.

              "I always think that Sharron fruit are like sweet and juicy chestnuts (raw). Lovely but it's almost impossible to find properly ripe fruits."
              I wonder if the Sharron fruit sold in the UK is a different species? I got a 'Fuyu' tree, which was, I think, one of the first varieties crossed to breed out the astringency. The one fruit I've had so far must have been pretty ripe, because it really was just like Rowntree's orange jelly :)
              Talking of chestnuts, the gale yesterday brought down lots of the prickly Bs, so donning thick gloves tomorrow to shell them!

                  That's them! Those prickles even go through rose pruning gloves! I made the mistake of leaving the husks in the border the first year. Shan't do that again!
