Hi John,

Do you think that there is much of a fruit-quality (i.e. flavor) difference between Nanking #1, #2 and (although you don't have the last of these) #3?

Hi,  If my memory is correct, Edible Landscaping was selling 3 different lines 
of white Nanking which were labeled, at one point, as #1, #2 and #3 due to 
needing two for pollination.  I've grown both #1 and #2 and both produced sweet, 
delicious fruit for me, although flavor would have to be labeled as mild.  I've 
been very happy with them, although one of the plants died two years ago.  The 
very best feature is that the robins don't seem to pay attention to them, 
allowing a relatively easy harvest.  I think the robins are focused on another 
fruit at the time these Nankings are ripening.
