My Dragon Fruit at 39 Days

Sunday, October 31, 2010

If we can pull away from the California elections, long enough to focus on more important things, the most profound question of the moment is whether my Chinese Dragon Fruit is at its peak of ripeness. I reported September 22nd about the first blossom I've ever had on my several-year-old vine, and about hand pollinating it. I'd read that these fruit ripened at 30 days, but this one didn't start showing color until about five days ago. Now the big question: When will it be at perfection?

Okay, back to my election endorsements.

(P.S., the delectable continuation of this saga can be found here.)
