Best Rare Fruit Youtube Channels?
« on: September 03, 2017, 01:39:47 PM »
Lets get a list of the best Youtube channels for rare fruit.   As the quality of Youtube has increased like 10x in the last few years, and now there a huge change going on in society because the quality of content is often better and more accurate than TV.   

My top so far is

Vegan Athlete - All kinds of great stuff on growing tropical in Desert Climates,  I wish I found this 3 years ago, It would have saved me many of mistakes.

Shamus O'Leary is great too, A nursery owner in Pheonix, very knowledgeable.

But that's only 2, I'm sure there's more!

I like Weird fruit Explorer. He just tastes all the fruit he can and describes them. Obviously travels a bit because he gets some interesting stuff.

And more for aquaponics, veg and a little bit of fruit is Rob's Backyard Farm and Aquaponics.

David the Good is also pretty interesting/funny

I"ll agree about David the Good, but he's not exactly rare fruits, just goofy organics.

I do like Pete Kanaris Green Dreams. Still wish I had been able to grab one of his food forests in a box before he got swamped by orders for them.

There is also Eat Your Back Yard. Not necessarily rare fruit, but very much akin to my back yard exploits.
If you can eat it, GROW IT!!
