Short Description

Hard-to-find fruit. Large rose hips with cinnamon applesauce flavor.

Full Description

Now for something completely different;a fruit like no other. The flavor of this rose-relative is a culinary collage of loquat, kumquat, fig and dates, with smoky, spicy overtones: a bit like apple-butter. Growing on deciduous 20-foot tall trees, weirdly wonderful-looking 1" rust-rose fruits resemble russeted crabapples. The real weirdness comes at harvest time. After plucking the fruit, they require ?bletting?, which means letting the fruits ripen until almost rotten-looking; brown, wrinkled, squishy;and the inner pulp is brown and custard-like. Once bletted, eat the fruits immediately;the window of flavor opportunity is tiny! Splendid in chutney and jellies, or baked, roasted or stewed.
