I'm staying at an airbnb in St. Pete, Florida and these bushes are planted around the AC. I've tried the berries and they are sweet. I'd like to know what they are because I might want to bring seeds home. The last pic is the smere it left on my shirt when I spit a seed on my shirt.

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / What potato am I eating?
« on: July 21, 2022, 12:09:53 AM »
I wanted to try a few types of sweet potatoes to decide which one I want to grow. I thought this was purple sweet potato, but it has a dry, starchy, and nutty taste. It's also not sweet at all. What am I eating?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What bananas should I plant?
« on: July 02, 2022, 03:34:14 PM »
I can't eat the usual Cavendish due to allergies, but I can eat other bananas.

First I'm looking for a banana I tried years ago that to me tasted like sweet pumpkin. Do any of you have thoughts on which one it was?

Next I would like to know what variety the red ones in stores are.

Finally this is the lineup I have planned so far. What do you guys think and can it be improved?
Ice cream
Misi Luki
Pisang Ceylon

« on: June 24, 2022, 07:52:19 PM »
I'm looking for some options. I'm planning to try Candy, Anne yellow, and Bababerry. I'm also looking at salmon berry, olallieberry, thimbleberry, mysore, and boysenberry. I came across the below thread, but am not sure if I can get any of those wonderful sounding typical Australian varieties here.

What do you guys think are my best options for Houston?

What variety combination would make for the longest season in these tasty tasty fruits.

Also do any of you have favorite loquat recipes?
