Just got a nice box of mango, fruit arrived in great shape and packed well.
Taste and smell are all top notch.

Still digging lots of fresh turmeric, galangal, and ginger.
Also have sprouted rhizomes for planting.

JF, any interest in selling an extra kava plant?

Picked up some plants from Nate, everything looks great.
Great seller, highly recommend.

Have your plants bloomed at all? Got any pics?

That is awesome, how big is the plant?

Picked up a box of cherimoya from Mark, fruit arrived in great shape.
Very good seller, highly recommend.

Ana, how is the taste of the fruit?

I realize the deadline in your post says May 8, just wondering if these are still available.

Have you tasted the fruits and wondering how fruit set is in Texas with high humidity?

I will jump in line if more fruit is available.

Howdy, I am digging up fresh turmeric rhizomes for sale at local markets and have extra to share.
We grow Hawaiian red, Indira yellow, and white turmeric.
Usually get $10/lb at market but open to offers.

I have had good luck finding sprouted Malay coconut palms on Craigslist for cheap.
Got five last summer for $5 each and the seller picked me a bag of mango for free. 👍

Kevin, any tricks to growing finger limes?
Do not have any experience cultivating, but seem very interesting.

Seminole pumpkins are a really good summer plant to grow.
The vines are very productive and handle the summer weather like a charm.
Gourds are good for storage and last several months once picked, quite tasty as well.

I am in zone 9b, tatsoi grows very well over the fall/winter along with kale, chard, cabbage, etc.
Callaloo grows great over the summer, but will spread aggressively if it goes to seed.

How did the avocado trees look?
I picked up some carambola, achachairu, tamarind, jackfruit, and jaboticaba.
The selection was very large and the plants were healthy looking.
Definitely was a line to get in, but it moved fast and was a fun Saturday morning.

I enjoy going to tropical nurseries just to look at what's available.
Never been to this sale and just want to check it out.
Not looking for anything wild, but curious to see what they are growing.

Anyone going to the Rare Fruit County plant sale tomorrow (March 25) or been to their sales in the past?
Just wondering how big it is and what to expect.

Nice looking achacha plants, gonzo.

Wizard, got any photos of your plants?
I always see Alpinia nutans sold as real cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum), would be nice to get the real thing.

You should be able to get away with growing peppers and tomatoes as perennials based on the climate.
I keep big pepper plants in a greenhouse and they produce fruits all winter.
Got any photos of your garden?

I grow moringa trees planted in the ground with full sun all day.
There are so many pods hanging on the trees and we fill buckets with seed.
Not sure what would cause them to not set fruit, ours are quite prolific.

Never tried araca boi, is the taste similar to other Eugenias?
