Growing fruits

We have several kinds of fruit trees in the garden.  The fruits including crab apple, grape, blueberry, fig, persimmon, pomegranate and 'rose hip'.

Crab apples 'Arupus-Otome'

This grape vine 'Kyoho' is very popular in Japan.  The size of fruit is large and it tastes very sweet.

We have six rabit-eye blueberry trees.  Last year we harvested 16 kilogrammes from July to September.  My wife MARPLE made a lot of jam, and a tart.  We are looking forward to harvesting.  
Blueberries are growing.

I found a ladybird on the rose hip.

  1. That tart looks especially yummy!

  2. We had persimmons in France but I don't think they would grow here. So many lovely things in your garden!


I do appreciate your comments very much - they enhance my day. Thank You.
