I think we all got tired of chiseling our posts in the bedrock.

Harry - I hope the in laws do not don the speedos and flip flops when they visit  ;D :(


The pommelo was the best tasting fruit we had.

harry! what are we to do with murahilin for such a ridiculous comment- can we ban him from a forum he founded and started?
murahilin seriously needs tongue taste bud augmentation surgery

+1  :( :(

From those pics, I can see the "fiber" I was referring to that are seen in some blacl sapote.  I have had a bunch from Har's tree (for those who know him) and they are nothing like that.  They are extremely creamy and pudding-like and much more consistently darker in color.  There is no way you could cut them with a knife and get that clean of a cut.

Lycheeluva - well, all fruits can't be lychees  :P ;D

While it is give the title of "chocolate pudding fruit", without using my imagination, I don't see it....however, I do believe it does have a nice, subtle taste with a hint of the persimmon its a relative of.  I also find it extremely variable from tree to tree.  I have had some that have a bit of "stringiness" to them and I have had some from a tree that were absolutely creamy.  It does tend to taste better if you mix a little whip cream with it where it tales on a sweeter mousse type character.

As to the other fruits, I love saps, pommelo has to be really good to be, murahilin, does the cherimoya rank with the Mahachanok in your book   :( >:( ;)


I know of some trees with Lula, Choquette, Monroe, as well as some other straggler varieties and I picked the last two Wurtz off a tree in a friend's yard (trees are all located in Lake Worth).

Harry - while Monroe is a very decent avocado, I find Lula to be not only one of the best late season Avocados, but I find it to be one of the best grown here in SFla.

Does anybody have any VERIFIED bloom spikes on their CocoCream and/or LZ ?

Alexi - not sure what you mean when you say "knobs".  To me, from the description I put in my head, I would say those are new growth buds and not flower buds.  But again, that is just the image I see in my head from your use of words.

The flavor of coconut water varies tree to tree, bunch to bunch, even within the same coconut depending when you pick it. There has never really been on color that I preferred over the others, instead there is an age of the coconut I prefer. It is when there is some jelly and is soft enough to be eaten with a spoon and still being somewhat translucent.
Agree, the water, and even the flesh, is best from a young coconut.

I must be an idiot = I just can't figure out how to pin myself on the map.....


Don't call yourself a lycheeluva. It's easy, just click on the member map button next to calendar and once in that page you will see some text at the bottom of the page that says to click here to add a pin. You will then be taken to you member page where you can put your pin. If you are still having trouble, message me.
if you use the "+" to enlarge the map it will make it much easier to pinpoint your actual location.

When I type in the message box the font color is very light in color, almost impossible to see.  It is the same in the subject line when I am typing in a post.  Is there any way to darken this ?

UPDATE! The button in the post screen with the little blue arrow inside red [ ] will change the text to black when typing!!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What matters to you in a mango variety?
« on: January 16, 2012, 09:19:17 AM »
you should have had the ability to chose multiple factors, as the poll DID say what factors.  Taste is obviously important as is tree size.  If I don't like the taste, why would I grow it.  Size is also a factor, or the realistic ability to maintain the size and be productive.  With limited spaces, I have to pick and choose carefully...oh, and cram in as required.

and Sheehan LOVES Durian  ;D ;D

As they say, admitting is the first step...with that being said, my name is Rob and I am a tropicaholic  :-[

Since I recognize you from the other place, I think most, or all, or you know me.
