Okay Jeff.   I know from previous experience regarding watering that we are not supposed to disagree with you or risk harassment and being run off this site, I have no problem with leaving here..  íThis place has been a valuable source of ideas for many.  Since before I came along there was no information for Organic Growers.

All vegetarians and vegans hit the wall...... Eventually. All depends on how much reserves you (anyone) built up during their "degenerate meat eating years". Women are more naturally veg eaters. The plant gatherers, while men went out for the hunt and like to eat in steak houses. Thus women are the longer hold-outs when on a years long veggie/vegan kick.

has anyone tasted nagasakiwase loquat? a have read pretty good descriptions

I have, here in Australia it's actually a pretty easy one to obtain. The fruits are sweet and have great flavor and generally can give 2 lots of fruit at different times of the year, usually being late autumn and spring.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Question on cocplums
« Last post by sunny on Today at 03:09:09 AM »
Does anyone know much about cocoplums?  I know it is a shrub that grows in Miami used at a lot of houses for landscape purposes.  It has small, pinkish purple plum like fruit that I mostly hear is bland.
Well, my wife is from Nicaragua and kept on telling me how much she loved icaco, cocoplums as a child.  I always thought that her memory was off because I never heard anything good about the fruit.
But, tonight she showed me a farmer's market in Managua and had large, deep purple plum shaped fruit labeled as icaco. It looked nothing like what I have seen from Miami.  Do any central Americans on here know anything about this fruit?  Would love to grow it if I could find the correct variety.

Do you have a pic of them to show?

I saw plants with fruits at evergreen nursery in carmel valley in san diego last year so it can definitely fruit in so cal.

Yes it's a subtropical plant, so should do fine in S. California.

The one in the picture is growing in a 5 gallon pot too.

I do have a few different varieties of really hot ones, I lost the labels though. Either trinidad scorpions, purple bhut jolokia, or some of the other really hot ones like carolina reaper. I have some still on the plant and some recently harvested in the refrigerator

Thanks... Can you ship to Florida? I will send you a message.
They grow readily from seed. I bought mine from eBay or another site. D

Na Dai is just an atemoya.
It's not a sugar apple.
It retains full leaves over winter here.
That's not accurate. Na Dai is Sugar Apple in Vietnamese. Atemoya is a hybrid of Cherimoya and Sugar Apple.
