german queen When are they ripe

Posted by skiezo (My Page) on

I have 1 qerman queen plant that has a few that are turning color.
My question is are these a red or pink fruit. They are a pink/orange color now and seem to be starting to get soft.
I am just now sure when they are ready to pick.

GQ is a light pink. You can pick them any time after color break and let them finish ripening on the kitchen counter.

I am curious what it is right to pick as well

RE: german queen When are they ripe

German Queen is now on my "grow every year" list. The picture is of a couple of fruit that still have a day or two to go ripening on the counter. I pick them when they have a good blush all over.
