Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Please help ID this papaya!!
« Last post by pineislander on Today at 06:37:39 AM »
Naming the papaya is very difficult because the fruit size and shape can be variable even on the same tree. Yours look consistent with thick flesh. Second picture may show some ringspot virus but could just be where fruit touch each other. Good luck.

Centella asiatica mats and spreads nice and tight and is also attractive with its fleshy rounded bright green leaves.
Also it is hardly a staple but it is edible with great tonic benifits.

I think it like moist areas but i have seen it very happy in semi moist forested areas and the ones under my tap only do slightly better than those along the skirting of my house
Thanks!
Here it is in Florida.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fermenting tropical fruits into alcohol
« Last post by Kada on Today at 06:11:43 AM »
second the roselle wine.  i really enjoy it!  a friend distilled some for me from our ferment but it wasn't the same, seems better to use roselle for flavor after distillation.  also did a miracle fruit with roselle which was nice but only because i had a massive harvest of miracle fruit and needed seed haha.

Going to try a annona squamosa ferment now, see how it goes.

here aboriginals commonly use rice, quinoa, millet, sorghum, lychee, longan, annona, mango, passion fruit and some others i am probably forgetting.  but seems many dont consider the creation of wood alcohol and the dangers it may pose.  would at minimum take skins and seeds off.

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Re: Chayote (Sechium edule)
« Last post by Kada on Today at 06:00:14 AM »
its probably because the leaves are getting wet.  maybe something like most of the family, think zucchini, pumpkin etc they get serious fungal attacks when the leaves are wet.  the older leaves here get the same, and just assumed it may be this.

Forum member Scott then informed me last week that he had purchased 12 trees from GuavaKing. He also knew his real name: Babar Majeed. This was different than the name that he had shipped the trees under: Adila Afzal, but both names were associated with the same companies.


Adila is a female first name.

i think im going to give the peanut a go now as its easier to source here locally, but the others will certainly be trying to get some growing!

cookie monster, sorry just noticed.  i used my cellphone to post this but i have farmers fingers and thus don't type well on phones, so auto spell got me this time.  i meant "smother" :)

Squam that is some legendary detective work. Thanks for putting all that work into exposing this ebay seller, I know I have thought from buying him in the past.

I would like to thank DuncanYoung and Squam 256 for their tenacity in this caper. I have had my index finger on the "Buy" button for this seller for quite a while. Good thing I am highly indecisive/highly skeptical! Thank you for your effort and hard work- saved me a pile of cash! Take care, Chris
