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-
El Bumpo
Dr. White

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

The red color in red fleshed dragonfruit is from the lycopene, which makes them more nutritious

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

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is my jujube tree dying?
« on: October 01, 2018, 11:57:25 AM »
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
