Interesting.  My Shinko and Korean Giant also cropped for the first time, but I have yet to discover where their "wonderful taste" could possibly be hiding.  In fact, I have been weighing the choices of keeping them for making some sort of cider or wine out of them in future (neither will be very good unless the fruit actually sweeten up eventually) or just topgrafting them to something fit to eat.  Any suggestions?  Half the fruit is setting in a shed and the other half is still on the tree in hopes that they will improve.  Right now I am looking forward to the Kieffers which at least have some flavor.     Donna, also in TN
