Low-crow fruit ideas?
Can anyone offer me some ideas of food I can grow on small trees or vines that will not be susceptible to crows and other birds in the neighborhood?
So far, I have on my list of ideas:
-Possibly "medlar" or other fruits that are picked before they ripen (?) This is just a guess about medlar, please let me know if you have firsthand experience with whether or not birds bother it. I figure avocado is probably mostly not bothered because it is picked before fully ripe and so I am trying to think of others. I know Cherimoya is also best picked green and brought indoors to ripen, but I don't know of any non-huge varieties of this tree (?) All ideas and brainstorms appreciated.
We have a ton of crows in this neighborhood. I find fruit stones in my yard all the time from other people's fruit that is stolen by birds. I already have in mind caging 4 particular fruit trees, but I don't want my whole yard to be caged. Thanks for your ideas !!
