Gone Tropical:

Hello everyone, I can't believe I did not find this forum earlier especially since I have a problem which I will throw at you shortly in the correct thread  ;D
I live in Orlando Florida for the past 20 years and love all tropical plants, especially bananas with their huge beautiful leaves. In my small back yard I have several banana varieties, and then single plants: Lychee 'Emperor', Barbados Cherry (which I never get any fruit since the wildlife harvests all), Peach, Nectarine, Miracle Fruit, Dragon Fruit, potted Meyer Lemon, Mango 'Carrie', Canistel and a Wurtz Avocado (my problem child)
Great to be here, and I am looking forward reading through the wealth of knowledge in this forum. :-)

Hello!
New member from SWFL. I am new to growing fruit trees, and am already lost in the world of mangoes. I have mango and other tropical fruit trees in my small backyard. The learning from having different fruit trees has been great, and I am loving it.

 :) Hi, I'm Loretta from N. Central Florida.  I am brand new here.  I started growning papaya trees from seed and they are doing beautifully.  I have one tree that I purchased from Lowe's that is actually older than the seed trees and it has barely grown!  It's been a year.   It's just 3 foot tall.  My largest tree had close to 20 frut on the main stalk.  It broke overnight and I am trying to rescue the fruit.  I know some are too young and they are oozing that white milky substance.  I think I might lose my first bunch but will watch diligently to protect new fruit.   I thought I was going to have lots of fruit to dry and some fresh to much on too.  Sad that they might have worms.

Popsicle, I'm sorry to hear about your tree breaking. I hear you can cook immature fruits like squash or make "zucchini" bread with them. I have not made either but have eaten the bread that people made--it was really yummy. I have made Thai green papaya salad--it is good too.
