Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Stolen fruit grrrr

When I get back in country I plan on calling the sheriff and the ag deptartment every time I see them in the neighborhood. Problem is they come during the day when people are away working. It was a fluke my wife was home with a migrane that she saw them in the first place.

Take out a digital camera and start taking photos and taping them. Crooks hate to be caught on camera plus you have something to show the Sheriff. Or take out yr smart phone and do the same

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Watermelon

Great watermelon photos. Wish I had the space to grow them. I had a seed come up (volunteer) out of the mango tree mulch and it spread watermelon vines all over my lawn. I eventually got a non ripe 12" long watermelon. I juiced it

I always juice watermelon rind with my green power juicer.  Chill the juice and I am sure it would be good for mixed alcohol drinks.  These inferior effin seedless watermelons have so much rind that you are throwing away 33% of your purchase price if you don't put the rind to work. Some pickle it.

Those are some amazing melons! Going to give orangelo a try, but not sure where to place. About how many hours of direct sun do the plants need to produce well?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Jarilla
« Last post by jeangat on Today at 09:40:57 AM »
Hello,

I would like to get advice regarding winter care for Jarilla caudata and J.heterophylla  (Caricaceae) ?
Should be watered sometime or rest dry for the winter?

Thank you in advance. Jean-Luc

BUYER BEWARE: greedpirates sent me seeds I did not order for my money and ignored all attempts at a tangible resolution despite the fact that I'd given them hundreds of dollars of business. So much customer appreciation much less basic decency and professionalism. They didn't even bother to communicate the change; I had to find out when the package arrived. Zoli admits that he knew they weren't the seeds I ordered but he thinks it's acceptable to substitute at his discretion and spend customers money as he sees fit. Furthermore they packed my very sensitive and expensive seeds with styrofoam of all things as a medium so many arrived dying instead of germinating. Some sellers can only accept friend and family paypal transfers out of necessity but greedpirates do it because they have zero integrity and refuse to take accountability for their mistakes.

Hi Paulish,
I do not have information about Zoli, but i know from my experince that the Nymph from seedpirates packs the seeds well and is kind. Sending other seeds than ordered (what you wrote about) is a very serious matter. I never saw this from seedpirates. It's hard for me to believe in their case. Can you document it somehow?

One blast of a shotgun over their heads does the job

Birdshot sounds as bad as buckshot but won’t  damage anything where the pellets fall

Plus if they turn you in you can have them trespassed as they have to admit they were on your land
 
If they steal what is next

Get a game camera which are cheap and film the trespassing

Price the stolen fruit at felony levels when you turn them in.

Might want to call the ag department and turn it in to them as they are more responsive to ag problems

Sure, home grown fruits will taste better, in most cases. As for Aegle marmelos, try to get a selected variety and try it. Let us know if you like it or not.

I don't know if I will get to taste this fruit locally.  I think it is mostly available only in the Northeast.

Anyone knows why all the fruits drop while raw and green!

Check out this thread over at the growing fruit forum...

http://growingfruit.org/t/kei-apple/4908

The way he espaliered his saved a lot of space and made it more managable. He also talks about how he uses them.

I hope it is ok to post a link to another forum.
