I think the last speech i gave was in 2014 to the Tropical Fruit & Vegetable Society of the Redland (Rare Tropical Fruit Conference)...about 7yrs ago.

I figured that was as good as it gets, and really didn't have much new information to share, so I stopped giving speeches and stayed at home on the farm to take care of my plants and animals.

I turned down a lot of requests to speak over the years, and recently tried to turn down another, but made a joke "if they let me do a zoom speech I might consider"...it ended up biting me in the butt, because now with COVID, all the speeches are via zoom...so i had no way to refuse (my usual excuse is, I have no employees, and have to stay and watch the farm...and it's not worth it for me to travel for a speech, I'd make more money and have less stress just staying at home).

So now I'm preparing a speech for the same society that paid for my last speech in 2014, the Tropical Fruit & Vegetable Society of the Redlands, on the 31st of March 2021.  The same subject as before, but now with 7yrs more experience.

To see the speech I assume you'd have to pay the dues for the club....maybe worth it because of all the zoom speeches they'll have?

I think they may film it and have a way to share it, but don't quote me on that....

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Peculiar Flowers of a Eugenia uniflora

Here are some pics, note the shape of the anthers, the petal count, and of course the size.

I put a normal black pitanga flower in the pic to show them side by side.

stumbled upon this today out among the multitudes of seedlings I've planted...it must have been overlooked for 2yrs by now...a real nice surprise...the odds of this are definitely  low, I've planted thousands and never had one hold the pattern for longer than a few months...


will try to get better pics later...
