Crop: Beth

Rather surprisingly, we ate our first ripe windfall Beth in the last week July. A few more have either fallen or yellowed and parted easily from the spur. Usually I'd say the first ones drop a couple of weeks later.

I decided to pick all the ones that looked 'ready'. That is showing faint signs of yellowing on the surface exposed to sun, and which part easily and cleanly. About 3kg picked so far. Fruit size is very good this year and so far the wasps haven't taken an interest.
