Hi Luis, your collection is expanding rapidly!
Where have you got the syzygium samarangense?

Do you think your friend can sell some seeds of the red avocado?
Hello my friend how are you? I buy it on ebay from Thailand... i can give you the link if you want.
You can contact him here on forum. I buy the avocado seeds here!  ;D

By the way do you think you can help me or know how i can get some good fruit passiflora varieties? I just want some cuttings...

I'm fine thanks. The situation is not as bad as the media says.
Oh from Thailand, flights are regular in Portugal right now? Here postage is much slower, so impossible to get it safely now, and normally it takes 2-3 weeks from Thailand to Italy.
I only got Passiflora Frederick, Fata confetto and Maliformis but haven't tried the fruit yet.
Had a very vigorous Edulis x Colvilli which was making tasty fruits, but it did die with the burian and the next I bought was never as vigorous as the first, little growth and died easily.

Things from Thailand arrive to me on max 2 weeks. They are very wellpacked and never had any problem!   ;D
I'm dying for good passiflora like the ones on US... will continue to try!
Thank's!  ;)

It's musa robusta, rajapuri, dajiao and dwarf orinoco.

Robusta and Dajiao seem really interesting to see how they cope, the completely unburned one is the dwarf orinoco (behind the lemon tree)?

You should put some things to atract flies... they are even better than ants.

The dwarf orinoco is still on the pot but will be on that place. Rajapuri is the smaller, the dajiao is the tallest and rubusta is near the passing way.
