Yeah... finger limes have very distinctive leaves.
Tiny in contrast to key limes... which have a more typical citrus-sized leaf.

Two left... for now.

I would say... typical Finger lime flavor.
Nice pink color too.

Bees did all the work.
I had key limes and finger limes growing next to each other.
I planted a bunch of key lime seeds and noticed the finger lime leaf characteristics.
Saved them and potted them up to grow.
I have 6 crosses now.
This was the first to start fruiting.

These mulberries can easily be grown in a 5 gallon pot... and will fruit abundantly.





Cut them back hard and give them regular fertilization and you will be rewarded.

I'm no avocado expert.. but I love to dabble... so this summer I bought a nice grafted Stewart and Mexicola Grande for their cold hardiness and supposed good eating. They will stay in 20 gallon nursery bags and in my greenhouse for now.

Mine started last spring as a rooted cutting about this size:

I planted it in a 20 gallon nursery pot and put it in full sun with plenty of water and Miracle Grow on a regular basis.
It reached about 6 foot by August.
I cut it back hard... I would say about 60% removed.
I cut the branches into smaller pieces and planted them for rooting.
The mother plant immediately started re-growing... very fast growth with lots of fruit set as well.


These trees are amazing!

It's not so much the taste.  it's the sourness factor.
I can eat one and enjoy it... but it would be difficult to eat a whole bowl of them in a sitting.





They bloomed up a storm this year too.

They are blooming and setting fruit again.
3rd flush so far this year.

I have one of the freestone types as well.
The seed rattles around in the fruit when shaken.

These Thai Dwarf Mulberries are much larger than the ever-bearing types I've seen.
