Our rouge vif d'etampes cured and are going to be slow roasted in the oven to prep them for some Thanksgiving pies. I hope they taste O.K. We had a small yield with one that got run over and scarred by the dog and one that never grew very large.
When cut, they smell almost melon like. I tasted a bit and it was very mild and sweet.
This project is obviously a multi-day one, so I'll post more later.
