« on: December 06, 2021, 01:44:53 PM »
I was talking to another Forum member today and he was wanting to know the exact species of this plant...
All I could say was that I got them as seed from Miguel in Portugal and he calls them Sweet Uvaia:

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sweet Uvaia Setting Fruit

Setting Fruit:


Down the hatch... Thai Dwarf Mulberries this week:

They ripen gradually over several weeks... so there is plenty to eat every day.


Fruit out of my orchard kept disappearing overnight. I finally got tired of it and dug a Tiger Pit Trap.
15 feet deep with vertical sides. Covered with bamboo and leaves. Caught my first fruit thief last night.
He's lucky I decided against punji stakes... so he's just trapped... not injured.
I live in a college town with a lot of college students and sure enough this is one of the local frat boys.
So what should I do with him?


Cherry of the Rio Grande "Garnet.
I've grown a lot of COTRGs... and this one is very unique
Beautiful red coloration on the bud growth:


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Growing "Lolita" Suriname Cherry?

Anyone growing "Lolita" Suriname Cherry?
I have a seedling which is about 4 years old... Black fruit.... 10 gallon container...5 ft tall and budding up nicely right now on my front porch.
I've noticed it has relatively compact growth habit with darker green leaves than my other Surinames.
I wondered if other growers of this variety noticed these characteristics.
Here's some photos from this fall:

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cold Hardiness of Cherry of the Rio Grande?
« on: January 23, 2021, 01:22:29 PM »
Winter dilemma... I have limited space in my greenhouses... and as usual... I have accumulated more plants than I can fit inside... so I've had to cull some of my plants... including Cherry of the Rio Grandes... several year old plants mostly in 5 gallon containers or larger. Surprisingly they have endured a dozen nights with below freezing temps... with several in the low 20s... and with no damage. I had written them off initially... but now I have a suspicion they will be sticking around for another season.
I am in West central Alabama - Zone 7a-8b... in the middle of town.

Just curious about other people's experience with winter hardiness of COTRGs.
Thanks for your thought.

Cedar Bay Cherries- Very prolific
Pitangatubas - Sour and plentiful
Owari Satsumas - Large, sweet and abundant - flourished in my front yard without protection
Japanese Persimmons - Sweet, plentiful and long lasting on the trees
Na Dai Sugar Apple - Loaded and tasty
Key Limes - Fruit to spare
Finger Limes - Pumping them out
