Very good fruit,quite fleshy.But you should bag fruit because of fruit fly so they can get full ripe.Sometimes if their is to much rain they can get washed out,not as sweet

Some young girl had them at  Smiley's it wasn't her.The one good rambutan I had was [almost] as good ,but the pulasans were free stone and now have jaded my taste to others.The workers were happy to take me around it got them out of work for like 3 hours

Oscar when I was visiting the big island few years ago,I stopped at usda hilo and Dr zee let me tour facilities with some workers and we ate are way through rambutans and Pulasans.Anyway only one big red rambutan could hold it's own with the pulasans all the pulasans where excellent big purple ones,the seedlings were as good as the grafted ones.That purple strain of pulasan pop up at different fruit stands around island like smileys down at green mountain.What is the name of that strain it was better than most I have tried since.

I was smelling longevity spinach blooms today and they have a strong smell of                              nacho cheese doritos ,small yellow flowers

Calcium is very important, competing nutrients.
cocos really like heat, hot and wet is great now cool not so much
pics  were good

I'm getting sleepy, have to call it a night

Red spicata coconut is bit smaller

karen usually you do get more than one deficiency,but classic wedge pattern,now stippling and necrosis k. uptake? soil temps,soil pathogens

Go with maypan coconut your in a traditional [Lehigh Acres] cold corridor that goes all the way to Golden gate. fiji is a delicate lily when it gets cold, but mayapan coconut one tough hombre.

Aphid could cross contaminate infected citrus to white sapote in theory? My white sapotes do not develop to full maturation anymore even with cross pollination it's been years 10+. Biggest they ever get now is golf ball size if that

Homestead is not alone in needing rock plowing on the big island hawaii  south of hilo is all basaltic lava rock and they use big d9 cats to bust up that rock to make soil it's pretty amazing on sometimes rough terrain.

lots crazy folks in pahoa more than pineisland to much free drugs

You have to start with smaller pots to train and root prune .Grafting and training with wires the top growth all to stunt apical dominance.You are going to have to read up on bonsai techniques and apply.
