Wow! That is a great looking fruit. Seesms red on my screen, but that just my screen, I'm sure. Also, I've never heard of Mazarini. What made you go with this one?

Thanks all,
Grub, who seems to have a lot more hearts to grow this year :)

RE: Mazarini, Russian pink heart

Hi Grub

The color is slightly off since I took it in the morning light on a white paper towel which makes it very hard on the camera to figure out when you are zooming thru the process.

This is a new one from Andrey. I chose it because I wanted more pinks and I wanted a different shape since I already had 2 pears, some plums, lots of rounds etc. So it was just a wild shot. I only seeded 1, it came up and it grew like crazy, very vigorous. It's about the size of a grapefruit, so to me quite large. It needs better staking than I gave it this year but I do recommend it.

Thanks Lumi. Very interesting indeed.
BTW: Looks more pink on my laptop at home now :)
