Fall Gold Indeed

My Fall Gold raspberries started ripening just before we left on vacation a week ago.  I'm glad my Mom, who faithfully looked after our house and garden while we were away, had a chance to enjoy some of them this past week.  They are nice raspberries in the summer, with a surprisingly mild flavor.  But during their second crop this time of year, words don't express enough the amazing sweetness of these raspberries - truly gold, in both color and flavor!
PS. The raspberries in the photo are surrounded by some of our Asian pears from our delightful espalier tree, which are also nice and crisp and sweet.
