OK... I'm getting ready to clear-out my greenhouse floor back to bare soil.
Obviously it is a very fertile area for grass and weeds to pop up.
Plenty of sunlight... heat... water... and fertilizer.
I wanted to get some recommendations for Weed Block Ground Fabrics/Materials.
I see all kind of products available on-line...
So what do you use that works best for you?
Thanks again for any ideas you might share.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Physalis ID and Info
« on: June 27, 2020, 06:40:40 PM »
While not strictly a tropical fruit... they are a annual fruit of tropical origin.
These Physalis plants pop up everywhere in my veggie garden... and pretty much anywhere the ground gets turned over.
Wanted to know if anyone had any info about them.
Here's a few photos:














Thanks!

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Thai Dwarf Mulberry Plants
« on: May 30, 2020, 01:05:05 PM »
Thai Dwarf Mulberry.
Why wait years for fruit... when you could be picking fruit in only months!
Fast and easy to grow. It thrives in a pot too.
Can EASILY be grown in a 5 gallon container!
After the first harvest is over... Just cut it back hard...
And wait for the fruit to start setting again on the new growth.
That's what I do!
Multiple trees could be pruned into production... in rotation... to keep fresh fruit available all season.

















Rooted cuttings - Stocky, Well-Rooted Starter Plants.
Only $35 each or 2 for $60... both with FREE Priority Shipping!
I can also combine orders with other plants I sell for additional discounts... Just Ask!
PayPal only.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Let's Boost My Grafting Confidence!
« on: May 13, 2020, 06:32:19 PM »
I'm just getting started with grafting... but I am beginning to see what all the fuss and excitement is about.
I would appreciate if members with grafting experience would list plants they find the easiest to graft.
I figure I should learn on the easier plants... gain confidence and experience... and then work my way into the more difficult choices.
Baby steps!
Thanks for your input!

I'm watching a dozen or so recently grafted "Black Star" Suriname Cherries and I'm pleased to see them pushing out new leaves.
I have been daily checking for sprouts beneath the union and rubbing them out to force growth energy into the grafted scion.
So far so good.
This is only my second possibly successful venture into grafting and I was hoping to get some tips on after care.



Thank you.

My first "Nelita" is starting to ripen.
Right now it's a tomato red color.
Have no idea what the fully ripe color will be:



Anybody know what color a fully ripe one like this would be?

Here are some photos of my E. Calycina fruit and a description of the fruit's taste.
The texture is similar to a japanese plum or an apricot with the taste of a mild apricot.
No bad or astringent after taste. This example was dead ripe.
The best tasting Eugenia I've tried to date.
Beautiful black skin with a golden orange flesh.
Here are the fruit photos:

My Eugenia Calycina/Cherry of the Rio Grande is starting to ripen fruit.
As this is the first year it has fruited with such abundance... I wanted to get some feedback from Cherry of the Rio Grande experts as to when is the best time to harvest for best flavor.
Here's a few pix:







Thanks!

Today I pulled half a dozen root sprouts from my Red Jaboticaba... with the intention of re-potting them.
They came away with several roots attached.
I potted them up into small containers and placed them in a shady part of my greenhouse.
I pulled one last year and now it's a fine Red Jabo specimen.
Just curious if anybody else had done this.
Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cherry of the Rio Grande Blooming
« on: March 09, 2020, 12:02:41 PM »
A couple of my COTRGs are blooming now. I'm including one of my "Nelitas" in that group. They are all in pots in my greenhouse... and it is too soon for bees... so I am hand pollinating with an artists paint brush.
Or at least I am trying.
It's too soon to tell if they are setting fruit... but I am hopeful.
I've had to add an extension to my brush... because one of them is over 8 ft tall.
I also noticed one of my Sweet Uvaias - Eugenia pyriformis is budded up.
Just curious if anyone has some insight or feedback to share about this process/culture.

Thanks.

Kevin

I received an email from someone yesterday wanting me to ship them a few plants through the mail - USPS Priority Mail.
I live in Alabama and they are in California.
I have no idea how the USPS ships packages... should freezing temps be a concern?
Common sense tells me yes.
Usually I only ship during the warmer months of the year.
And because of this I never have any issues with freezing.
Anybody have suggestions?

Thanks.

Kevin
