This weekends fruit availibility:
Sapodilla: numerous varieties
Mamey: Magana, Pace
Caimito: Purple
Starfruit

New Arrivals:
Rollinia (seedling)
Ilama (seedling) large pink fruit
Fernandez custard apple(grafted)
SanPablo(grafted)
Fairchild #2 canistel (grafted)
Green and Purple caimito (grafted)
All are in 3 gallon pots $35 each first come basis!

Thanks for the beautiful Fernandez custard apple tree. It didn't take long to produce a enormous fruit. Not the typical Sugar appple\Atemoya\Cherimoya taste or texture but very creamy and fruity. Light years ahead of the typical seedling red custard apples and a keeper for sure.

Nice Andrew!  My little tree is holding 3 fruit.  The seedling I planted a year before flowered like crazy but did not hold a single fruit, even with hand pollination.

Thanks Andrew for the Fernandez pic. Been thinking about adding a custard apple to the collection, now I have too.

Hey there, Mike. That Taiwanese guava I got from you last year has been incredible. It produces softball sized guavas (HUGE!) that are very sweet when eaten mature green. Very productive too. Definitely the best guava I've had in my garden.

Is this variety free of fruit flies, Jeff? Or is eating mature green the only way to eat guavas in South Florida?

I haven't let one get to maturity yet, but I"m pretty sure it would have fly larvae if I did :-). They are very delicious mature green though.
