That one is one tough hombre the chuck gene?Ill call it chuck!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / anti desiccant
« on: January 05, 2018, 10:11:58 AM »
I used some thermx 70 as anti desiccant at 1 oz per gallon on vegetables and other exposed  sensitive plants like cocona ext. to keep the drying cold winds from burning leaves and it worked very well. Use it at 1 oz gallon is also a good fungicide for tomatoes.Used in backpack sprayer it is economical,this was not my first choice but did not have any of the polymer based anti desiccants but work well.

« on: July 31, 2017, 12:56:26 PM »
okay picked 3 big red cocona fruit today they were 2.5 t0 3 inch wide shaped like fuyu burnt red color . washed chopped and simmered then blended and strained add  sweetener and chill makes half gallon.Must have a bit of pectin in them as the juice was like nectar very tasty kind of citrus passion and something? but worth growing ,small shrub like tree 7 foot by 7 foot seeds came from peru through traidwinds seed

here a link my fruit was flatter and much darker red http://perudelights.com/cocona-jewels-of-the-jungle/
