Huge "Harvesting" of AÇAI today!
« on: November 30, 2015, 07:49:10 AM »
Well, not exactly a harvest, we have a HUGE HORRIBLE T STORM here, and some of the acai palms in my garden felt down. I am glad they felt in the only stop where they didn’t destroyed anything, almost a miracle!! If the palms felt in straight line they could destroy my veranda, or some storage rooms full of books, or the neighbour house!!
We will eat a lot of heart of palms and acai!!

Oi Carlos,

sorry to hear about the storm, but glad that you suffered no damage!
Is that acai ripe? Are you going to sell all this fruit, or are you keeping it for yourself?

I read about Acai cultivar called "Párá Dwarf", they say it is dwarf, early bering cultivar with bigger amount of the pulp. Anyone heard something about it?

RodneyS, this is Carlos Açai, I gathered the seeds of this very productive variety in the Amazon Jungle long time ago.

BMc, you dont need glasses, the turtle is not giant at all LOL

Radoslav, yes I can get as many of that variety as you want, just PM. I have a few hundred seedlings growing.

Cheers

Carlos
