But the taste is the same!
Two views of the weirdest DF fruit forming:
Picked today and eaten - yummm!:
It split all by itself - cut out the broken edges and enjoyed as usual:
The red-fleshed DFs ripen much sooner than the white-fleshed DFs. I've just started to write the date of pollination on the stem to keep some kind of track of ripening time. I have read ripening can be anything from 28 days to 40 days - quite a spread. There would be a lot of modifying conditions; I'm wanting to know how long my plants take to mature their fruit. Unripe, the white-fleshed fruit can be very tart.
They may not all be perfect, but the flavour is superb once they are fully ripe.
