Shelly, I grow 2 varieties in your area. I do not have problems with mold. I
have them about 6 feet apart and they are at least 7 feet high. They have sun
from mid morning through sunset. They have moderate air flow only. Contact me

Subject: [nafex] goumi and mold

Hello NAFEXers,Has anyone encountered difficulty with mold on goumi? I am in
the southeast where humidity presents a real challenge for fruit growing.I
have found that goumi are quite astringent until ripe (when they can easily
be pulled from their stems) but that by the time they are ripe, a black mold
begins to appear on the surface and quickly spreads between fruit. For the
two years the plants have been fruiting, I have lost the majority of the crop
to the mold. This year, I covered the plants with a low-tunnel (with the
sides open) to keep the plants dry. Even this did not seem to reduce the mold
spread. I could probably be more cognizant of only harvesting when the dew
has dried. I am not certain if goumi will continue ripening off the plant.
Does anyone have experience with this? Any suggestions or recommendations?I
love the taste of goumi and they are popular with my market customers. They
seem worthwhile if I can figure out a solution to the mold. Thank you,Shelley
