Berries/ Fruit Trees...
This is what an "Elderberry" looks like when flowering. This particular type will produce red berries in clusters.
"Elderberry " bush but more like a tree... almost like a "Sumac" type leaf. This Elderberry is about 25 feet tall. We have others on the property.
A huge "bumble bee" on a Salmon Berry flower in the center... can you see it? We have 2 types of "Salmon Berries" the yellow and the burgundy ones.
Trailing Blackberries in flower... they grow close to the ground as a vine type bush. Such a delicate flower. Incredibly sweet and are the size and shape of your little finger and oval/rectangle shaped berry
Ambrosia Apples I grew from seed... one of the best varieities that I've tasted. They are very crisp and long keepers. They were produced in the Okanagan in Summerland as a new Apple variety where my in-laws worked at the Agricultural Center. We got to taste them before they went to market as a...
This is a Thimbleberry, they look like a "Velour Beret" and is a light salmony red color. They are a little sour but sweet and very seedy but the seedy taste is almost the same texture as biting into a dry, chewy fig.
This is the "Huckleberry" flowering... it is a weird type of flowering... not really a distinct flower but, seems that the flower petal comes from the leaf shoot and produces just a few flower petals in a pretty pinky- mauve color.
We have so so many flowers from our seedlings of our Framberry and Pineberry bed, hopefully a bumper crop this 2017 summer.
2 Red Cherry trees given to us by our cousin 6 years ago. They are now about 4 feet tall. Have to cage them from the deer.
We have 9 Ambrosia Apple Trees that I germinated from seed and now just over a year old... just transplanted to bigger pots.
"Everbearing" Strawberry as seedlings, that produce HUGE stawberries. The first berry was 2 and a half inches long.
A nice Black Turk "Figlet" on our Veranda Fig Tree... Oh, just noticed... I got photo bombed by my cat's butt and tail through the fence...
Our Yellow variety of Salmonberries. These berries go from green to yellow only. This is at it's ripest stage.
Ready to eat, ripe "Thimbleberries" right off the vine. These are very delicate berries as just the little cap is removed and very soft, they don't hold their shape much like a "Beret" cap or hat, so that is why I am showing them on their husk. They are sweet and have a kind of a marmalade consisten...
I'm showing the scale size of a Trailing Blackberry... you can see it is the size of the first knuckle to finger tip about 1/2 inch.
"Trailing Black Berries" at ripe stage... so sweet. They are about 3/4 an inch long and elongated... like the last joint up to the tip of my finger on my baby finger in size.
