Here is our Surinam cherry bush. It's about 15 years old. We have never seen this many fruits on it! Quite impressive.
There are creeping cucumber vines all throughout it this year, which is the only thing that's different, otherwise it's been neglected as usual. Unlike the cherries, we've been enjoying the tiny cucumbers. YUM!
Green Deane says the best time to eat these cherries is when they are a very deep red and they fall off into your hand with no effort at all. I've tried to enjoy them, but it's just not happening. Our ex-door neighbor used to devour them. She'd be in heaven if she still lived next door!
