Winter Crop

A small section of one of my sabara's. Will have thousands of fruit if the birds and squirrels don't get them.

Wow! Gotta get some jabo seeds and try them out.
The hardest plants to grow are often those most worth growing.

You will have a long wait if you get Sabara seeds.  Seek out the Red Jabo seeds or better yet, invest in a Red Jabo plant.

Yeah I'm aware of how long it'll take. Red jabo seeds would be my first try. Not sure about a plant since it's substantially more expensive and there are other plants I'd prefer to purchase.

Jabo, I'm curious if your Jabo crops differ in any way? I have a Sabara and Red hybrid that fruit year round and have noticed differences in crops. One crop will be smaller but will have larger fruit and vice versa. Am I slacking in the fertilizer regiment? Its hard to figure out a fert schedule when the damn things are cranking out the fruits non-stop. Thanks. Chris

Are you growing them in a greenhouse?
