Hi Kevin,

I am interesting with the Nelita seedlings, how old are the seedlings?  Do you have a picture of them?

I have couple seedlings that I brought the seeds from Miguel.

Thanks,
Al

Where were you with these a few months ago? I paid nearly the price of one of your plants for one seed and i'm afraid I might have killed it.

They look so good and I have a seedling that got a bit roasted in the sun. Looks like there is a bit of a species complex going on here with free genetic intermingling. Brings a new light to 'crossing the Rio Grande'. Nelita looks to have the biggest and most appealing fruit in the group.

Whats your opinion of the fruit Kevin?

Larger and much more productive than my standard COTRG.
There is some subtle variation in shape and flavor... granted I only have 5 mature plants.
Mostly sweetish. Not astringent. With a lot of red pulp. Each fruit has several seeds... which sprout amazingly quick... so it wouldn't take you long to have quite a collection.

you could just pm "customers" like everyone else

of course, that would mean not shamelessly bumping your sale threads
