Loquat tasting on May 22

Early season loquat tasting. Napa Library is the only one that is fully ripe now.  Kando is getting there, and Argelino may need more time.  McBeth seems to be flat.  Will re-taste the latest three in a week or two.
Left to right: Argelino, Kando, McBeth, Napa Library

In the order of my preference on this date:
1. Napa Library
2. Kando
3. Argelino
4. McBeth

Napa Library is a graft from the tree growing by Napa Library.  It produces small, but very sweet fruits.  Seems to be early too.

Not so common plums. Sultan, Peach-plum Hybrid DPRU 377, and Jefferson

Sultan  plum was recently revived by few CRFG members.  I grafted this cultivar in 2018.  It produced some fruits the first time this year...
