  • Coll de Dama de Ciutat

    I’m really looking forward to CdD Ciutat this year. This little tree has got 65 fruits on it!

    Wow, very nice! Fruit from last year looks tasty

    I noticed that the leaves on yours curve up inwards, mine has been doing the same. Wonder if it’s typical for this variety?

      RosyPosy I haven’t really paid that close attention. I went out and took a look now, and CdDC is still curled, so are a number of others, though mostly other Pons’, like De la Gloria, BNR reverted, and Tia Penya. Not sure what to make of that.

      Could it be those varieties are more susceptible to heat?

      goodfriendmike that’s possible. RosyPosy’s question is the first I paid much attention to it though.

    This variety seems like a winner for my cool, coastal climate, too. Buds out early, sets fruit early, and, I hope, ripens them before the true CdD varieties -- I'll find out this season.

      I had at least one ripen last year at a reasonable time (October 10th), from a graft done in March, so I'm hopeful with the early fruit set this year, it'll ripen earlier. We'll see.

      Right on! I wasn’t sure how mine would do here as I used to struggle ripening Panache in some spots of my yard. Do you grow any of Pons’ other late ripeners? Like Morro de Bou or De la Senyora Hivernenca?

      No, I’m not growing those ones. Well, tried with Hivernenca but graft failed. It happens!
