Many people havenít heard of Jaboticaba  or auchacharu

And havenít tasted them either as all are familiar with oranges and apples

My retriever has been my foe for Rollinia

I planted the first one and was putting tools away and I look back and his is using it for a chew toy

The second was a tennis ball accident

Ball bounced to the Rollinia and it was wiped out in the process

I will try a third some day

Back in the 80ís a guy came to the door calimondinwanting kumquats

Told him those are Calimomdins and very sour and he gives me the face like Iím lying

So I get a paper bag and let him fill it up and when he was getting in the car I said try one

I repeated that they arenít Kumquats and sour

He expected Meawa sweet kumquat and tried his first and maybe last calimondin

Vanilla and cacao

Soursop if you have the room

Garcinia types we can grow increase with a greenhouse

Never seen Toppy when he wasnít smiling

He gets more pleasure selling a pound of Lychee for four bucks than have millions in his pocket

At Fruit club meetings you will find him on the first row where he can hear and learn from other experts

He is still planting new fruits trees

Proud to know him

I stumped my key lime that had dead limbs from greening

Was going to finish digging it out but time got away from me so it leafed out again with no greening

Second year with fruit and no greening

Itís a seedling and noticed lots of seedlings in hammocks in the woods still growing

So I tried it on my grafted Dancy tangerine

Cut it back hard sprayed it with oil when it came out to deter leaf minors and it is cropping again like normal

Start with your trees and plant smaller things around them for protection

I have a coffee plant for about fifteen years now that has froze back a couple times and came back out and is about 12,ft at the moment

Some things like moringa is cut to the ground to over winter and comes back out

There is a lot you can grow here when you start understanding your land

How big does butterscotch get

Ditto on fruitscapes being where I got mine

Anyone know if garcinia will germinate a different type

On the other hand I have a twenty year old jaboticaba and Starfruit and a 17 old coffee bush that has froze down a couple of times and grew back again and blooming now

my illama is doing well also

20 mango in ground

9b isnít all the same

If youíre in the country itís going to be colder than a city

Auchacharu can be planted outdoors in 9b

Vanilla and cacao would need the extra warm
