ume fruits ripening?
I planted a Prunus mume, and it is doing very well.
Some of the branches are heavily laden with fruit, which is
hard as rock, though some are blushed with a bit of pink.
How do you decide when to harvest the ume? I see that I should not wait until they ripen, but at what point are they ripe enough to make umeboshi and plum wine?
If anyone can enlighten me, thank you very much.
