Yeah you should do dairy goats,  chickens, and rabbits would also work. However you want to focus on a few things at first and not get in over your head.

Look into biochar, cover crops, mycorrhizae, compost,  and other topics.


Wax jambu after 3 years, I was unable to take waterboxx off.

They don't need any additional water once I took off from trees after a year.

No problem guys, roblack I don't have any scions unfortunately. It was a friends tree which he gave me a fruit from.

out of seeds, xshen let me see if I can muster 6 seeds order.

I'll take 6. I'm very close to you. Can you send by first class in padded envelope?

Did you actually eat the fruit? How does it compare to the regular soursop fiber wise?

Yes, I ate the fruit. Its very good. It comes from the same tree as

The flesh has very little fiber, its more like Cherimoya texture mixed with a little slightly fiber mango texture. The fiber is easy to chew and enjoyable to eat. The flavor is a burst of aromatic sweet and sour. I was told that it sets 2 crops a year in Boca Raton. The second late summer crop is much sweeter, this spring crop was already amazing sweet sour flavor.

I have 20 seeds left to buy.

I am out of seeds if everyone confirms. I am just waiting for payment to confirm. If someone backs out I will update.

I am growing many different cacti in PSL. Cereus sp. perform great and require no irrigation and little care. Stenocereus gummosus does well in a container, grows quite slow though.

I also have Echinopsis sp. selections for fruit that seem to do well. Opuntia sp. can be hit or miss depending on the selections.

I have lost several types of cacti to humidity and excess moisture.

Looks like it would be possible in parts of Hawaii and Puerto Rico for those in the U.S.  Would be interesting if it could cross with other species.

Awesome do you have pictures ? Is it an easy grow from seed ?

Yeah its easy to grow from seed. Here is a picture of about a 8 month old seedling at the time.

Yeah I am growing it. Pretty plant, moderately fast growing. Supposedly fruits a couple years from seed.

The fruit could of been an elangated lychee with spikey protruding like a pulsaan. I wish I took a picture. Perhaps it was a chance lychee seedling.

I have used the Oakton pH model listed here. Works well but you will need calibration fluid after using it for a bit. Also read the instructions a lot of models require the diode to be kept wet in storage liquid or distilled water.

Make sure you clean the diode after use well with running tap water then use distilled water and a soft cloth if needed.

These ones are much cheaper,

I can get double the amount for the same price.

Someone in San Pedro grew what looked like pulasan in there yard, person worked for the ILWU. They brought some fruit to my old work to try, I tried some it was juicy and sweet and did not look like a lychee. I never got to see the tree though.
