What's in Bloom at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates?

Garden Puzzler – Win a Plant!!!

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On January 18th

I’m bringing back a puzzle that had everyone stumped when it first appeared a few months ago…

This fruit’s name was once used as a verb describing a specific way to preserve food.

Do you know the names of the fruit and the preservation method?

First person to post both correct terms wins a succulent!

HINTS: The fruit and preservation method are two different words (and the fruit is NOT cucumber).  The fruit’s name is no longer used as a verb but the fruit is still enjoyed today.  I’ll add more hints to this post in the next few days if no one posts the correct answer, so check back often or sign up for email notifications since I won’t post the hints on Facebook! Jan 20 hint: the fruit is a tropical fruit.

Contest Rules: Leave a comment on Facebook or the Garden Blog with your answer.  The person with the first correct answer will win. The winner will be announced on the Estates Garden Blog and on Facebook.  Plants must be picked up from the Edison & Ford Winter Estates within 7 days of contest end (and, no, we can’t ship them!).  If you have won previously, please wait 60 days before guessing again.
