Arrived home this afternoon to find my visitors have departed. Checked other trees and around the exterior
of the house and found no sign of them. Love it when mother nature does her best work.

Sounds like this one doesn't live up to its description.

There are 1 or 2 combs back behind the 2 in this picture where most
of them are working.

Upon closer inspection, I have determined that my visitors are imposters, not honey bees.

I found that they:
  • Only have single wings, not two
  • Have straight antenna, not the elbow bend
  • Do not have a pollen pouch on their legs
I am trying to identify to see if they are in any way beneficial before getting rid of them.

Thanks for all of the recommendations and information. I am a honey lover and find bees to be
fascinating creatures and would never harm them. They seem pretty docile, even when I stood
close to take the pictures.

I'm taking a wait and see position at this point. If it continues to grow and become a potential
hazard (Neighbor's kids, etc.), I will have a relocation specialist come in a move them to a safe area.

Is it a chilian guava? How big is the berry?

I don't know. She said that her mother would make jams/jelly with them in Virgin Islands.

Met someone from Tampa area who grew up In Virgin Islands and is looking
for a guavaberry plant.

Anyone know of a Florida seller?

Hi

Are feijoas self fertile? Or you need more varieties?

Thanks

Onur,

According to this article "Two or more bushes should be planted together for cross-pollination unless the cultivar is known to be self-compatible."

My inga edulis doesn't seem bothered by the humidity.

How long have you had it?

Planted seeds from Kona Fruit Farm TFF member on 9/2/16. It's now 5' tall and still
in a pot.

Hi Michael, was it from seed?? if so how long??

It was a 15" plant that I bought from Montoso Gardens in 2014. I also grafted one of Luc's
Mexican Garcinia scions on it in 2016 and it bloomed twice but no fruit from it yet.

(Sorry FLnative; didn't mean to hijack your post)    :)

I am growing one that produced it's first fruit this year. Surprisingly good.

Thanks,

has some great ones left.

I am growing Black Madeira in St. Pete area and as you can see from the photo, it doesn't mind
the heat or humidity.

If you are buying on ebay, beware as there are many scammers as well as sellers who don't really know
what they're selling because they sell them before they fruit and can't verify it's the "real thing".

Your best bet is to join the Ourfigs.com forum. Great group of knowledgeable growers who can steer you
in the right direction.

How do you like your black Madeira? I would assume it has to taste better than black mission or turkey figs.

My BM had only one fig last year and I picked it a little too early. Even then, it was better than Brown Turkey and Celeste.
It had a major growth spurt this year and is holding about fifteen. I will be patient this time and hope that we don't get too much rain.
