Fairchild #2 Canistel--- first taste
Last spring I fell for canistel at Jeff's place after trying one of his Bruce cultivars and got a little Fairchild #2 from him. To both of our surprise it bloomed and set about a dozen fruits... which one by one the tree self aborted with the exception of two little fruits.
Well, today one fell to the ground totally ripe and I FINALLY got the chance to try it. True to what I heard, it's outstanding. Sweet, creamy, excellent eating skin, and only the very slightest touch of latex deposited on my lips. No worse than kissing my GF when she's wearing lipstick :-0
This coming year I REALLY wait for it to fruit. Has anyone had the opportunity a #2?
FINALLY, I have two seeds I'm willing to give up if anyone is interested, but Jeff gets first dibs :-)
