Please, do it Oscar.

I have two surviving seedlings. One is 2,20 m tall in a pot. Must be close to fruit. :)
The other seedling was in a communitary pot, together with 3 sisters and dont grew as expected.

Mine are only 1.5 m tall and already flowering. The flowers are small white flowers, but pretty. Will post when i finish fueling my generator, filling up water bottles, and refueling all my machinery, packing my essential things, in case i need to make a rapid exit.

i also got a plant (via Oscar) that is flowering now...  really cool looking flowers.. the bush is only perhaps 5 feet tall.    can one bush produce fruit by itself?   i only have one plant.
With 3 acres of prime real estate for growing tropicals... why not create my own garden of eden?? Work in progress
