Papaya tastes like barf so I can't blame her for that one.

I bought 2 from Fruitscapes in 1 gal. About 40 had had just been delivered from Zill's. They had a yellow tag that said Triple sec, but inside the pot was a small square that said Seacrest. Fruitscapes confirmed it was Seacrest.

Have considered dragon fruit?

It is not a geffner for sure because she has a geffner for sale.

Nah, it is a different cultivar being called Australia here. Steve said that it is a cultivar from Australia that he received from a grower in California. Tim and Australia are two different varieties being propagated by Fruitscapes. I think both came from "Tim" in California but I could be wrong about that.

I bought every atemoya Steve was growing this year and there wasnt one called Australian. He said Tim was a Australian atemoya.
Anyway I just text him to make sure and he said it's the same.

After watching this and hearing the description I wonder why this isn't more common.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: FOR SALE: 25 gal Ugly Betty

Hi.  Just saw this.  Thinking of getting an Ugly Betty.  just curious - why did you sell it?  production issues, size.  I am in east Boynton,, just east of Congress.

Just taking a guess but Rob hates carry. So by his description above, it might be the reason.

I on the other hand tried it for the first time this year and I though it was outstanding.

I had 2 this year grown on Pine Island. Never had this before. The flesh was all white, the skin was green with white specks. Had a resinous green taste. The taste was phenomenal.

I was at a nursery today and saw a few mangos flowering. If I was to guess I'd say it is due to survival instinct caused by Irma and not a normal bloom. I wouldn't let one try to fruit this time a year.

Does anyone know how this tree grows? Does it need something to climb on? Shade/sun?

If you bought the plant it's yours. I think the patent just prevents you from legally propagating and selling the plants.

What does it taste like?

pineisland is sinking 17 inches of rain and just won't stop, every night it just starts all getting hit on the road,part of lower feilds under water.


edit totals

Pine Island is 32 square miles. 12 inches of rain on that area is 6.6 billion gallons

Thats 55,044,000.000 pounds of water.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: I need more guavas in my life.
« on: August 27, 2017, 07:50:40 PM »
I just got 4 seedling trees from a friend, he calls it Luke's White Guava. Had a chance to try the fruit, great taste, soft sweet flesh, skin no bitter and hasn't had fly problems picked on the tree. He is in the Punta Gorda area and has more well grown in tree pots for $12.00.

I would be interested  in one of those.
