3129 Reche Rd, Fallbrook, CA 92028

They had a lot of nice looking african prides and other cherimoyas and avocados citrus etc.  Its more of a grove supplier than a boutiqe nursery.   I put one of the african prides in next to my cherimoyas.
Thanks spaugh I'll check them out next week

I donít remember if this question has been asked before but is voodoo child the same as S8 sugar dragon. On spicyexotics site he claims that research shows that they are both the same.
I think I read somewhere that they arenít but canít recall where I read it from.
I never heard of Houghton where can I get cuttings from that variety?
The small red one is a cross I made with Houghton and Yellow Colombian, it is the one that has a strawberry melon taste.

Nice! Sounds delicious. Do you have any pictures of the flowers?

They both taste the same to me, I would take a houghton or physical graffiti over the sugar dragon, it's overrated in my view. Better to grow a Frankie's red or colombian yellow if you like them sweeter. I crossed a houghton with a yellow a few years back and this is the first year it has fruited. It is similar in looks to a Frankies Red but has more of a strawberry taste. Once the plant gets bigger I'll be able to distribute cuttings.

It does look like a purple variety they normally have a heart shaped stems, but it's hard to tell. I have a 2 month old Purple Haze that I got from Linda Nickerson I recommend getting cuttings from her

Exotica nursery in vista will have lemon zest and sweet tart.  I got the last coconut cream from them two months a go.  I know they can order more.
Thanks Mikey I'll check them out this weekend to see what they got, and again thank you for helping

Hi,

If you are going to prune the tree and consider throwing away, please let me know. I am willing to pay for the shipping fee/cost of the cutting or pick up locally.

Thanks,
Dragon

I don't remember how it tasted. I heard that people liked it at some later Irvine tastings. Mine hasn't fruited yet.
Are you going to be in Covina on Sunday?

I think Robert Patterson is in Ontario? He's by the 15 and 60 and is friendly. Post on the pitayafruit yahoo group if he doesn't see this here.

Anyway, tell me what you want ahead of time so I can bring them to Covina on the weekend.

What's good about Lisa? My plant used to be bigger but I neglected it and it's died back a lot.
Do you not like Lisa? I heard it was sweet.
