Picked up this coconut palm for $25, Just checking to make sure its correctly ID, it looks like my red dwarf, wanted to make sure.





My neighbors brought me this fruit, it stinks but it taste pretty good, the shell is tough and the inside is powder, i forgot the name.


This french peanut is growing into the ground so i was just going to cut the pot and leave it alone, think it will produce in such a tight space right next to my magnolia tree?



This avocado seedling looks like its throwing out a flower, anyone know what its doing?



Updates on some trees

Purple forest guava produced 2 fruit, pretty stoked



My Kepel tree from Excalibur i picked up last year didn't look to good when i picked it up, it was in a perforated 7 gal pot and around 8 feet tall so it was a bit neglected being a long taproot tree. It lost all its leaves when i transplanted it and cut the pot from the roots and i didn't know if it was going to make it, I put it into the richest soil i had and added every microbe and bacteria to it, 8 months later it started growing new growth but all the leaves kept dying and falling off, its doing great now and exploding with new growth

When it lost its leaves




its crooked in the pot from wind, didnt stake it but i didn't want to mess with it so i leaned it against my fence



Ilama is fruiting again, hopefully it will produce a mature fruit, last couple years the fruit kept falling off. Its in a 45g pot


Geffner Atemoya is fruiting for the first time


Surinam cherry decided to fruit also for the first time, trees about 5 or 6 years old, Their pretty good, I also saw a black surinam cherry on a 2 year old plant, it didn't fully develop and was musky.




My Jamaican cherry is really starting to produce heavy, the fruit is so good, im going to try and make juice.
Ive been picking this amount daily for the past couple weeks


I bought a noni tree a couple months ago around 8 feet tall, Produced its first fruit and i have to say it really does smell like stinky cheese, Didn't eat it yet, just savoring the smell ;)



a bunch of plants are flowering like acerola, peanut butter fruit (B. armeniaca), jackfruit which has fruit now forming, random guavas and passionfruit, a bunch of citrus is flowering and fruiting, papayas, bananas, various eugenia, some inga trees, candle stick tree, annatto, sapodilla (molix), Guarana and a few others. Im stoked ;D

where did you get the Muntingia ?
the fruit on mine seems a bit smaller. hard to tell from the photo
maybe its an effect of the lens or something ?

our freeze in January knocked mine back to the trunk
its about a foot tall now, but growing fast.
i wonder if i can graft it ?
i have 5 small plants from seed also i need to trade off, before the get huge.

How long did it take for the purple forest guava to fruit ?
ive had mine 3yrs, but last year we had a freeze that killed 1/2 the plant.

Is it the same as dwarf golden coconut? Mine has a few fruits. Just picked one, got to drink coconut water and eat fresh, soft coconut meat.

The fruits on my muntingia have been getting bigger since its been raining everyday plus i put a bunch of fertilizer on it.
The purple forest guava is about 3 years old, grew it from seeds from trade winds.
