I can't tell what species of either one you have, but yes you can make good booze from slighly over ripe fruit. You might throw it in the freezer, as you collect it, till you get a seasons (read enough to make it worth your while) worth. Freezing also helps to break the pulp down so it mashes and ferments better. Depending one the density of the fruit, you might also try boiling it a little.
A friend of mine makes wine and enlightened me to this, so far it hlods true. He says he likes it to be damn near rotten. A tad extreme for my likeing, but he does make a good wine for sluggin down around a campfire. It also makes a good distallate as we recently learned. He wouldn't give up any of his reserves till he was satisfied I could do a good job distilling it.
Hope this adds a little encouragement for I am liking brandy more and more. Always drank bourbon and nothing else till I got into this hobby.
So many experiments and so little time.
BTW nice trees. Dont get to see many fruit trees in this part of the world, gotta drive to the western slope.
If it was easy everybody would do it.
