Joe....do you still want caimito (star apple)?

I went to visit a nursery and the owner has several trees on site and nobody seems to eat them.

Ground was littered with fruit and I am sure I can get them to let me pick a small flat rate box full.

I ate one yesterday that I picked on Saturday and it was very nice....sweet and a pleasant texture.

Let me know

Hey thanks for thinking of me, back when I posted this I was trying to try the fruit to see if I liked it. I do like the fruit, Iím growing a grafted one that is said to be a large green skinned one, and I have ~ 10 seedlings of purple skinned Iíve eaten from truly tropical. Might be an option to clean some fruit and post an offer of seeds for sale as their might be people looking to grow to fruit or to start rootstock 👍

Thanks,

Joe
