smreldo question

command_z(z5Illinois)July 26, 2009

I grew smreldo for the first time. How long should they be when picked? I have some 6 inches. That seems a little long, but I'm used to blue lake. At what length should i pick?

I grew Smeraldo last year, and didn't care for them because they got big and tough too fast, so I would recomment picking them a little smaller. It might be different for you though. Let some get larger and see how they taste. My larger ones seemed tough and empty.
