Haha, grapes are a staple here... along with bananas, apples, peaches/nectarines, plums, pears, cucumbers, strawberries, tomatoes, avocados, honey dew melons, cantaloupes, watermelons, lettuce, greens, carrots, peppers, celery, broccoli, and citrus.

We usually have 2 or more of those in the house at all times.

I'm exploring non-staple plants for my household.

I planted 2 persimmon tress this spring - one astringent, one non-astringent. The set fruit late this year and they didn't have a chance to ripen.

I am dying for next year's fruit, I love persimmons.

Yeah, I read that they can get as high as 150 ft and their taproot can go as far as 120 ft. That's ridiculous.

I had one for the first time last year. I quite enjoyed it.

I'm waiting for my dad's elderberries. They grow wild around his house along with his figs.

Love both figs and Elderberries.

The best persimmons are the astringent ones - they are larger and pointy on the bottom. You have to let them ripen until they are squishy - they appear overripe then. Then they are super sweet - otherwise they are - well - astringent.

The non-astringent ones are also good, they have a flat bottom and are smaller and you can eat them when still hard. They don't have as much flavor though.

Giant passionfruit is awsome. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/co...nfruit.jpg

not sour like the smaller ones. You can make juice of the skin or eat it. You eat the inner side like small passionfruit. Dunno if murica sells it
