Frank, those fruit look delicious. Theyíre ripening just in time so you can get a good dose of vitamin C and other antioxidants to ward of colds and the flu.

Hi Simon
Yes itís that time of the year. Iíve been getting my flu shot every year since I turned 50 but Iím sure all the guavas and pitayas pack a mean punch

What I would pay for those mangoes this time of the year. I'm supremely jealous, and hungry.

Thanks guys.
Rob

Mangos are extremely sweet none below 22 brix but Jalisco roja is a record breaker, sweetest fruit Iíve ever recorded. Jalisco guavas this year is the  best fruit Iíve had  in 2018




So I repeated again and it register an eye popping 37.8 !!

Damn frank, let me know if you ever have one of those guava trees to sell.  I put some of your scions on my tree but not sure if they are doing anything.
