email sent. Thanks

I would also like 4 of the $10 seedling pitangatubas and the Aframomum.

3
Also, do you have  Grains of Paradise (Aframomum melegueta)? Thanks

4
I would like the Meiogyne cylindrcarpa, the large Eugenia pitanga and two small ones, and a Ross sapote. Are the pitangatubas seedlings from especially large or sweeter fruit? Thanks

Great, what do you have in the way of Annona cornifolia, Meiogyne cylindrocarpa, Eugenia pyriformis, and Eugenia pitanga? Also do you have any grafted starcherries, pitangatubas? And do you have either Ross or wooly sapotes available? Thank you.

NOAA's forecast is for warmer and dryer.  http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/long_range/seasonal.php?lead=2        In SW Florida I think that the main determiner of crop size will be how the trees were pruned this year. Irma's horticultural pruning skills left a lot to be desired.

If we wanted to buy a plant from your Flying Fox Nursery, would it be possible for you to bring it when we meet you at Fruit and Spice?

The research that Dr Ledesma is doing is amazing, cutting edge work. Is the red new growth one of the rubropetala hybrids?

Domnik, I haven't sent plants or seeds abroad but I think that the main problem would be with the regulations of the country into which the plants were being imported.

Three of the kwai muk seeds you sent have already germinated and I'm pretty sure that more will come up soon,they all still look good. They all arrived in great shape. I put them in Jiffy pellets and on a heat mat. Thanks again

Hi Monkeyfish,  I was going to message you and saw the posts here. Three of the kwai muk seeds you sent have already germinated and I'm pretty sure that more will come up soon,they all still look good. They all arrived in great shape. I'm still interested in the Dovyalis Abyssinica x hebecarpa. Thanks again

Soil pH affects the availability of soil nutrients to plants. It is the first step in knowing if you need to provide additional nutrients and how much to apply. If you want to improve your plant's growth or understand many problems that may be harming your plant it is necessary to know the pH of the soil in which the plant grows. If you are going to apply any fertilizer it is important to know how that fertilizer will be available to the plant. A good digital pH meter will probably be more than $100. Many cheap soil pH meters are almost worthless and might give misleading results that could cause you to harm your plant by misapplication of fertilizer. Your county extension will almost certainly be able to test your pH for free and test for different nutrients at a minimal cost. Be sure to take several samples from different areas and depths.  http://solutionsforyourlife.ufl.edu/hot_topics/agriculture/soil_testing.shtml

I had 3 seeds eaten by rodents during Irma's aftermath, but I have 1 which has sprouted and about 2 inches tall, planted in a Jiffy peat pellet.

This sounds like a great opportunity. I would like to go as well.

They have Melothria dulcis listed on rarepalmseeds.com. The fruit are supposed to be really good.
