Tromboncino update

Earlier in the summer I posted about the trombincinos and how they were quite productive and very tasty. It was not an easy journey for the plants really and the really wanted more sun and shelter and more water in July.

But they were quite productive and when they were young and less than 30cm long they were good eating, raw or cooked.

I guessed that if I let the fruits mature it would reduce the production of new fruits so I kept picking them while they were small. But I let a few mature. Rather oddly, most did not develop a swollen end as I expected and in a couple the blossom end actually rotted. But they did grow to about 80cm long and I am sure that, with a bot more effort next year I will get better results.
