The KARMA Pink had coloured up a lot when I checked after work, so played safe and picked it.

Tasted the KARMA Pink today, went down very well and young girl would have eaten 3 or 4 if I had them available. Will return next year.

My Karma Pink unfortunately didn't perform as others have posted, with straggly foliage and small fruits, which split badly. So far I have picked 5 ripe fruit, but as yet haven't tasted them.


Sorry I couldn't have given a better summary.

Thank you Mcsee for trialling it. The size of the fruit you show is correct, KARMA pink is a cherry. Surviving 44 degrees heat wave I think it’s s wonder that you got any fruit at all,
I hope all your others did better.

One for that hard working pair of ladies, KarenO and Marsha, Karma Pink which is not doing to badly in this Aussie summer here. Plants are probably around the 3.5 to 4 foot mark, unpruned with 5 or 6 stems but still reasonably open. Nowhere near as vigorous as some of my others which are topping 6 feet, some of that could well be due to soil type and how much wind protection they are getting. Not the greatest producers but considering their background they may tack a couple of years to acclimatise fully and for me to work out how best to grow them. They will get two more years at least. Largest would be golf ball size, having no problems with cracking at this stage, maybe keeping the plants a bit drier than what most do
