Twisted Licorice Harvest

Uploaded: October 24, 2017 | Entered: October 24, 2017 04:57:17


On the Balkan island of Kurdonia, Fall is harvest time for licorice twists. These strange fruits start off green, then turn red, and finally ripen to black. Only the black ones have the licorice flavor. However, some red ones are usually harvested and flavored with strawberry for export sales.
Okay, this is an unedited photo of my wife harvesting them in my backyard.
