Hi, George,

One other thing I learned about the variety we have when I attended the
Festival of Fruit, put on by CRFG in Santa Barbara: the flower buds
come in two colors, brown and green; but it is only the flowers that
issue forth from the brown buds  that produce blossoms capable of
producing fruit (FWIW).
