I still have Malika Orange Sherbert Sweet Tart hanging and about to start harvesting a bumper crop of large pink guavas and white guavas. I also have Barbados cherries that should be ready in a couple of weeks

Enjoy those Sweet Tarts!  They're amazing.

I had sweet tart for the first time this year and it was a disappointment. But I want to give it another try. Do you know where they still sell them?
Is it possible that this cultivar likes close to ocean? The one that I had was from Excalibur, so far inland. Or maybe picked too early. It was sitting for a week to mature.
Other varieties from Excalibur were great, especially Beverly, my new love.

I really want to hear about Orange Sherbet.  How intense the flavor can be.  I tasted only one, and it was a mere shadow of PPK flavor bomb.  But I've heard from others that it, too, is a flavor bomb.

I would love to hear about Orange Sherbet too. I swear I am not your stalker, John, although I piggyback on your posts. I just have one OS in a pot waiting to be planted, but I still can change my mind, because I have other candidates in consideration (Angie, Pina Colada, Sugarloaf, NDM4)

In Florida from north to south and east and west. I am as far from the ocean as you can get. Elevation 62 ft. I will never say that my Sweet Tarts are better than South Florida's because I frequent there vacationing and doing business. By next season I think they will be just as good. :)

Out of 30 varieties only a few Graham and Sweet Tart are still hanging. Picked 80 pounds Sweet Tart from two 3 year old trees and have 8 more ST trees left to pick, most look like they are holding 40 pounds each.
