I have several CA Keitt seedlings growing right now for grafting.  They're available around September at Aldi for about 50 cents/each. Other supermarkets will have them for upwards around $1.50/each.  CA Keitt seems to have good vigor, from what I observe

I dry the leaves, then crush them into powder with a Magic Bullet.  Stores well and I sprinkle a tablespoon over my food as my multivitamin

I peel them and eat them raw.  They're similar to yacon.  You can make a low sugar syrup, too

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Yacon harvest
« on: December 23, 2018, 03:32:13 PM »
Instead of pulling up all my yacon plants, planting the rhizomes and harvesting all the tubers, I'm now just harvesting tubers on demand and leaving the plants to grow more.  Seems much more time efficient that way.

I harvested this big guy that was coming up from the ground, today.

Those are Tommy Atkins.  Because of all the fiber, plus the hot water treatment affecting the quality, I don't buy them

You'll have to hand-pollinate to get reliable fruit set.  There are videos on Youtube on the process.  It's simple.

Varieties I recommend-
Pierce
El Bumpo
Dr. White
Honeyhart

Yellow potato onions are multiplier onions.  Each bulb divides into more bulbs.  Tastes just like common yellow onions.   Stores for a long time

5 bulbs of mixed size for trade

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Which dragon fruit variety is better
« on: November 07, 2018, 05:41:21 PM »
The red color in red fleshed dragonfruit is from the lycopene, which makes them more nutritious

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / For Trade - Sunrise Papaya seeds
« on: November 02, 2018, 05:06:38 PM »
Also knows as strawberry papaya, sunrise is a Hawaiian solo papaya.  Grows very rapidly and fruits while short in height.  Bred to be mainly hermaphrodite, thereby not needing multiple trees for pollination.

You'll have to thoroughly wash the kelp, to remove the salt. 

You can also use nori.  Just leave the nori in water, cover and let ferment till it liquefies.

Dragonfruit vines will get to heavy for it.

It's $4 a pop at the TX Whole Food, man I'm debating if I should pony up....  some are pretty decent sized.

Wow!  I thought 2/$3 for a couple small ones at Stater Bros. was pricey

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: what should I know while growing kiwano?
« on: October 12, 2018, 12:05:28 PM »
Slimy, but not satisfying.  It's more of a curiosity fruit.  I'd suggest growing something more worthwhile, IMHO
