    Don't know. The original fruit was brought to me by a friend that told me It was a really good mater and I needed to save seeds from it. My friend had been buying these at a farmers market from a guy that lived in Elliott Co., and he didn't know what they were called either.

    It could possibly be Estler's mortgage lifter but it's definitely not Charlie's mortgage lifter because I've grown those for 30 years.

    Eventful day today. Picked our first watermelon, a bushel of sweet and hot banana peppers, bowl full of purple bell peppers, few dozen tomatoes, bucket of cucumbers, a pumpkin, our first gourd, a ton of pear tomatoes, a bowel of kale, couple onions, mess of beans stringed and snapped, 2 dozen green tomatoes for canning, and a few dozen ears of corn grilled and cut off the cob for the freezer. Another 2 dozen apples ready to be turned into apple butter and fried apples tomorrow (my 3yo she can't understand waiting until they're ripe :D) Nothing compared to some of y'all, but that's a busy garden day around these parts.

    One of these days I'm gonna learn how to post photos....

    We have an old wire corn crib that is in decent shape - but we don't use it for anything. Wife and daughter planted pole beans around it....They have grown up the wire and are doing great. And it looks really cool....

    Ask your friend if he got em from Krandel? He has a hell of a garden every year and I know he grows those. I've got
    seeds from them for next year.

    I've completely dropped the ball on taking pics this year. Our corn luckily was ready enough by the time the monsoon came overnight. Ruined many ppl's around here tho.

    Seems some of our early maters(different kinds) didn't have much taste. I think where it rained every other day they grew to fast... idk really but there's a difference in them and the 2nd batch we planted.

    Maters are running over. As are hot and sweet peppers. The wife made up a bunch of fire candy. Candied serranos, habaneros, and ghost peppers. And made up a bunch of tomato sauce with what was left over from the market.
