That's good to know that they'll grow in our zone without much fuss. Thank you so much!! I'll message you around September.
 I'm slowly sourcing and collecting Hardy myrtaceae, I'm still looking for a couple Myrceugenia species but hopefully this spring I'll get one.

Solko, I've been looking for luma chequen. Too bad you don't have seeds. Are they easy to cultivate?

Is this the only cold Hardy myrtaceae you have? What kind of potting medium is being used?

Do you have a picture of the weeping guava?

Build compost piles on each site & the soil underneath will benefit. Organic matter will bring ph closer to neutral. The disturbance of turning the piles will eliminate weeds. In two years you should have several batches to work with.
18 day compost:
You might try using rings of fence wire to hold each pile together like this:

 did this in a corner of my yard a few years ago here in North Texas where we have hard clay, to this day it's still nice and loose.  Avoid disturbing the soil until you plant.

Excellent video, I believe he's a member of the forum. Hopefully we get a video of how his plants did after this winter is over.

Your Thai red looks excellent! I've got a guava similar to yours but I haven't received fruit from it yet, definitely gets me excited to try it!

Will you be offering ilama seeds this year?

Hello, Are scions still available?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Growing Carambola tree in a pot?
« on: August 24, 2018, 09:45:05 PM »

But I am convinced I have finally pinned down the flavor of carambola. It is a fruit version of Brussel sprouts.
That's so weird but it's a really accurate description of some of the carambola I've tasted! Lol

Family feuds and beef between neighbors is no joke in Mexico, my father is from a small town in Guerrero and while me and my brother were growing up he'd share how the males of our family would lose there lives in feuds with other families. It may not escalate to that but It's best to find an alternative than to potentially risk your live or health.

Definitely looks like some sort of campomanesia sp.
My guess would be campomanesia adamantium

Paulish no one is being disrespectful to you so why are you being rude?  All b2b was pointing out was there's more than one story.
Anyway your posts really show alot about your character....

Leaf in the first picture on the left actually looks crunchy(dry) maybe it's getting to much sun? Might benefit from some shade

For me they tasted like fruity tomatoes, not entirely bad. I agree with scottsurf more of a health thing

You'd probably have better luck posting this thread in the tropical for sale forum

Hi, do you have sete capotes seeds available?

If you can't find another source, logees has small plants available.
