Lon,
Next time I am in the north west. I need to make a point to visit your place. I am still kicking myself for not doing so last time.

I don't have time to harvest  much C. mas fruit.  If someone is close enough to come and get it, you're welcome to it.  Some of the early ripening ones are gone now, but there are still a number of trees with a lot of crop.

Allow them to soften before eating.  I generally wait  for fruit drop, as individual fruits have a tendency to mature at slightly  different times on the same tree.  Once accustomed to judging ripeness  with them, you may be able to pick some from the tree.  Some varieties  hold onto their fruit better than others.  Yellow C. mas drop their  fruit when ripe.

 Lon is a very fortunate man.  Someone in Oregon should contact him to  "help" with his harvest. :)

One of my cornus mas has 14 fruits this year!  (Plus  two more that 
 I've picked.)  Okay, not a huge yield, but I've previously only  gotten 
 1, so this feels like an actual crop.

 How can I tell if the fruits are ripe?  Most are fully red, a few  are 
 still slightly pink.  The two I picked were fully red, crunchy,  and 
 very sour, although I liked the flavor.  Do they get sweeter and  less 
 sour if I let them ripen longer?  How much longer?  I don't think  the 
 squirrels have realized they are food, yet, but I suppose that's only 
 a matter of time.

 thanks,
 Ginda
