Real talk right there. Thanks for thinking of us in that moment though I figured it would be a tease in the end. Your right, itís not worth it, gotta just eat and share with friends and family all you can get .

But some people selling seeds have told me they taste really good. Haha

They taste very good! I may have some extra seeds before too long.

Glad the cuttings are arriving well!
Happy to send extraís ! I have so many bushes of Pepino Dulce now that I am officially a Pepino farmer.
I should have alot of fruit for sale later this summer into fall.

Yes , I still have cuttings available.
Hand pollination is not necessary, they readily set fruit.

I think they are good to go. Send me a PM and let me know how many youíd like.

All of this ladyís posts I find idiotic but this one was certainly more offensive and thoughtless than most. I try to skip over her posts , I find them so stupid .

Mike Bender was an original. One of a kind.
Glad I got to meet him and it is clear his charisma and personalty touched alot of people.
Iím glad he got to do what he loved with the fruit treeís and share the joy of exotic fruit treeís with all kinds of folks. Gone but not forgotten.

Mike was a nice guy, he will be missed.
May his memory live on and his enthusiasm for exotic fruits continue to inspire.

Everyoneís taste buds are different.
You gotta keep tasting new things to find out whether you like them or not.
Some like it hot, some not. Variety is where itís at though! Grow lots of different foods and flowers .
Iíve had Pitangatubaís I like a lot and some that were a bit too sour for me. They seem to vary greatly from seedling to seedling. Iíve killed the Pitombaís Iíve tried to grow, not the right weather for them in Northern California I suppose.

Yes,I have to make sure the cuttings are hardened off and not green first. Iíll check and update this weekend.

Are you sure the assholes werenít raccoons ?

I planted some purple sweet potatoes cuttings on the sidewalk infront of my house.  Some asshole stole it.
They dug the topsoil off  where I planted the cuttings.

Thank you Matt and Elouicious! I appreciate the positive feedback and am happy to get more White Sapotes out there to be planted up!! I hope they are fruitful for you soon. Hit me up whenever you want scion, I have a bunch of good varieties planted our now.

Maybe try filtered or half day sun.

I think Barath did a nice Passiflora forum write up for CA ,if you do a forum search for passion fruits.

Are these Orange colored when ripe?

I donít think Orange seedís are true to type.

So many microclimates I donít really pay attention to the generalized zoneís. Berkeley way different than Fremont different than Vallejo , near the bay or 1/2 way up a hill above the fog line. In the flats or on slope. You can maybe pull it off in the east bay depending on where your at. Better luck if you get scion and graft onto a Manila seedling. Still dicey and may not hold fruit. Covering with greenhouse panels in winter would help keep it from root rotting while its cold and still getting light when the sun is out.

Where in the Bay area?

A forum search of chop and drop and nitrogen fixers will provide you with some good information.
