I was glad he had a positive review for son pari, as I have recent successful graft of it.  How they exclaim it's spicy makes me eager to try it

I have 6 1 gallon pkm2 seedlings.  Some are flowering now at less then a foot tall.

I had this scenario you are going thru RNGuyen. I was waiting for late July to remove all the fruit from my Manila seedling. I removed all the fruit (to get vegetative growth) and a grafting I did in April of PPK just came to life which I thought was dead. Pretty crazy how it lasted such a long time without any activity.

How much of a brown color did you see in the scion?  I have a peach cobbler that's turning brown.  Gives me hope and may delay me from grafting anew underneath the older graft

Organically grown, w/ good root development

Iguanas are delicacies, supposedly.  The tail and ribs are touted as the choice cuts

What about a crossbow?

Lowes/Home Depot will have them late June/Early July.  Just keep checking

I have several CA Keitt seedlings growing right now for grafting.  They're available around September at Aldi for about 50 cents/each. Other supermarkets will have them for upwards around $1.50/each.  CA Keitt seems to have good vigor, from what I observe

Good Land Organics (home of Santa Barbara Exotics) is sold out for the year.

I dry the leaves, then crush them into powder with a Magic Bullet.  Stores well and I sprinkle a tablespoon over my food as my multivitamin

I peel them and eat them raw.  They're similar to yacon.  You can make a low sugar syrup, too

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Yacon harvest
« on: December 23, 2018, 03:32:13 PM »
Instead of pulling up all my yacon plants, planting the rhizomes and harvesting all the tubers, I'm now just harvesting tubers on demand and leaving the plants to grow more.  Seems much more time efficient that way.

I harvested this big guy that was coming up from the ground, today.
