Olives thrive with ease. Perhaps googling the thing.

Pine needles help lower the ph. Commercially, the O'neal variety is good. If you want something beyond the usual, the Portuguese ones (Vaccinium cylindraceum and Vaccinium padifolium) are wonderful.

It depends. Makes a very appreciated brandy. It gets sweeter with the cold. I saw it growing where it snows, wikipedia says it is hardy to zone 7. It does ferment very quickly and bruises easily. I like it but i don't really eat it often. The leaves are medicinal. It attracts butterflies and looks and feels good. Easy to grow.
Portuguese info

A board dedicated to forum issues would also be of benefit.

Thanks for sharing. The fruit is just part of the gifts of the tree, there are plenty of medicinal uses as well.

Any updates on this? Anyone else growing it?

Thank you. Those links are somewhat related but not quite. You linked me to Daisy London and i need something like Buccellati.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Contemporary hydraulics/irrigation experts

Some one/company that would possibly be able to recreate something akin to the Tivoli Gardens. Some one able to use natural materials and work as Nature to create a natural irrigation system.
Does any one know of such people/companies and would like to share?

For reference:

Thank you.

Bay leaves are a natural weevil deterrent, perhaps you can use them preemptively. Laurus nobilis is my preference.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Opuntia, commonly called prickly pear, is a genus in the cactus family, Cactaceae.[1] Prickly pears are also known as tuna (fruit), sabra, nopal (paddle, plural nopales) from the Nahuatl word nōpalli for the pads, or nostle, from the Nahuatl word nōchtli for the fruit; or paddle cactus.

The tuna name goes in general for all cactus fruit.

Hence the more general plant based approach. Something like: seed, seedling, spring wood, hard wood, sage, sequoia, etc..

Criollo is my preference. I would look into Cupui (Theobroma subincanum) as well.

We have quite a decent distribution of chestnut in Portugal as long as you forage them or get some good organic ones they are pretty good.
I have heard that the Korean ones are super sweet and large, has anyone had any experience with them?

It is a good place to visit. Perhaps a nice vacation in a few months, why not?  :)

My intuition tells me to go for the Mexican criollo, when i find the ones in alignment with my preference.
I go with the flow, for it knows where i need to go.
