Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: what should I know while growing kiwano?

Slimy, but not satisfying.  It's more of a curiosity fruit.  I'd suggest growing something more worthwhile, IMHO

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is my jujube tree dying?

Jujubes are going into dormancy now.  I still suggest, however, using organic fertilizers.

I have Sugarcane & Honeyjar.  Of the 2, the edge goes to Honeyjar for flavor, but Sugarcane is great, as well

I know the place in Compton, Rainbow Mealworms.  I have several bags of their mealworm castings at my home.  I'll sell you 2 bags for $16

Just wait until you see the first ones that start to turn yellow.  You can also just leave them on the tree at that time, as well

Organically grown, 1 gallon
Easy to grow & propagate via cuttings

I had a black sapote and put it in too big of a pot.  It died of root rot.  Since I am going to replace it, is there such a thing as improved variety and anyone know to purchase it?  I have never seen it listed.  Also, is there a better variety of bc Barbados cherry than FL sweet?  That is what I have and it is a less than pleasing variety in my opinion.  But, overall I like the shrub and would just like better and more fruit production.

Bernecker, Reinecke are improved varieties of black sapote. 

I have PKM2 moringa seeds & seedlings

Sharwil is another good one.  If you like ginormous avocadoes, look into Queen

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Use aquarium water for plants
« on: August 27, 2018, 04:35:44 PM »

Fish waste has nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and ammonia, plus beneficial micro-organisms.  I either water my potted & in-ground plants with it, or water my compost piles to add more nutrients & increase the microbial activity.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Watermelon
« on: August 14, 2018, 10:39:20 PM »
I loved my Sugar Baby melons. 

BTW, watermelon, especially juicing the rind, is high in L-citrulline, which is the precursor to L-arginine, a vasodilator

Definitely no, in my opinion

Did I miss something?  What does shark meat have to do with anything  (other than it being Shaq, I mean shark, week)?

If you see shark meat do not buy or eat it.  Nuff said. We had our fun taking dogfish shark. Reel them in then knock them against the side of the boat.  Father's wooden hull 1948 Chis Craft with a Chrysler or Dodge automobile engine (ocean water salt water cooled) stuck in the middle, none of this outboard engine BS. Heave them against the sides until they looked dead. Toss them back in, most sank and few swimmed away though maybe they did so when they were out of my (our) sight.

You have obviously never tasted a fresh caught Mako shark...

Mako or not. The shark meat was nice and pink but made me feel sick for at least 24 hours. First time>>>>last time.

Sharks should be bled out after being caught, as their blood contains their urea.  Blacktip reef sharks make excellent fish sandwiches, called Bake N Shark, in Trinidad & Tobago

Sunrise papaya (aka strawberry papaya).  Very sweet, with no musk smell.  I have a seedling tree and love the fully ripened fruit

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mangosteen at 99 Ranch Market
« on: July 13, 2018, 04:49:32 PM »
Shopped at my local 99 Ranch Market today and spotted fresh bagged mangosteens from Mexico

I'm keeping the seeds for planting, mainly as a curiosity project

My Black Diamond wax jambu has several fruit plumping up, and is now pushing more flower buds, too.  Perhaps it's just the variety?
