« on: November 27, 2015, 11:34:46 PM »
Im sure there is variation on seed viability depending on variety, in general what would be a time span that would be acceptable for the seeds to still sprout and at what rates of germination success.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / cooking with annatto leaves
« on: October 29, 2015, 10:06:00 PM »
I was curious if anyone knows or have tried cooking annatto leaves, I found info on making annatto leaf tea but can't find any info on the right way or ways to cook annatto leaves and how they taste.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / water at a depth
« on: October 27, 2015, 06:01:22 PM »
I was surveying my land and dug a bunch of holes to see where the water is, its mostly 4 up to 11 feet before i hit water. so i was wondering if there will be any problems with planting trees like Artocarpus (jackfruit and the like), mango, durian, cacao, java almond, paradise nut, anonnas, salak, avocados, rambutan, Alibertia edulis, amla, cashew, mamey sapote, sapote, garcinias, langsat, inga, star apple, cinnamon, carob, figs, cola, star fruit, lucuma Also any other tree you can think of that wouldn't like it. im thinking too much water or will they be good. Im sure the myrciarias, eugenias, and bananas will love it, same with palms. I think its cool in a way because you never need to water. any thoughts or opinions on this. Just making sure so i don't find out the hard way.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / how long can soursop stand flooding
« on: October 15, 2015, 12:05:17 AM »
Im making a river path threw my yard to guide water in heavy rainfall and im digging a 3 foot hole sloping to act as a break and was thinking it would be good for a soursop as it will stay warmer and i remember reading it can withstand flooding, so since its all free draining the second it stops raining im wondering in heavy rainfall when the hole fills with water could the soursop stand a few days or up to a week flooded.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Where is the Fruit Punch
« on: September 10, 2015, 01:38:58 AM »
I find tracking down fruit punch to be extremely difficult, 4 nurseries all said they cant find it, one thought they found one but mistook it for another mango and after driving a few hours to pick it up I found it to be a peach something but at least they had Coconut Cream which i was hesitant to get as Fruit Punch sounds better. one in particular went to miami and visited 3 nurseries but were all sold out. any news if im dealing with meatballs or are they available and without that asian fly what not.
