I went for one of my rides into the campo yesterday, I do that whenever I am stressed or frustrated, and it always relaxes me. At the moment, the Níspero fruit trees are in blossom. These are actually a pretty high maintenance type of tree, as are the Chirimoya. With the Níspero, the tree produces huge numbers of flowers witch have to be culled in order to not over burden the tree. You will see in these photos, that they some bud stems have indeed been cut away leaving a more manageable amount of fruit for the tree to handle.
