Our first fruit harvest at Redwing in 2012

Since the birds have already harvested our cherries, these fat plums are the first real harvest of the year from Redwing orchard.

The big juicy looking specimens are Santa Rosas, of which there were disappointingly few. They're gorgeous, though. More plentiful (and great for jam) are the Satsumas.

We also have some good Bosc pears coming on, a good tree of French prune plums, Jujube fruit (aka Chinese dates), some figs and a plethora of apples of several varieties. The apples are by far the steadiest, most prolific and most reliable producer (not counting olives, of course).

Here's some photographic evidence.
