Filipinos eat sliced green mango with fermented shrimp paste.  The salt of the shrimp paste counters the brightness of the mango

Hand-pollinate to make certain you'll have fruit

You will love the Dwarf Namwah.  I've grown it for years and always await their ripening.  I've been thinking of adding Raja Puri for another dwarf banana

2 forkfuls of high protein duckweed
Grown organically on fish waste water
Reproduces rapidly, especially during warmer weather
Acts as a biofilter, feeding off ammonia from fish waste
Great for koi, tilapia, ducks, chickens etc.
Only $5!

Separate some of the pseudostems, and plant them elsewhere or sell them

I use neem solution that I mix (water, neem, liquid soap) in a spray bottle, once a week. It's said the solution loses potency in a day, but I wonder how come the pre-mixed neem sprays in stores are good to use when bought off the shelf?

Leave them.  I have many fruit growing on my Sunrise, at the moment. 

Sprouts had USA grown cherimoya for $6.99 last week.
USA grown cherimoya is probably from the Santa Barbara area, & not hot-water treated.
Chilean grown cherimoya are still good, but since they're hot-water treated, not the best representation.

I have some 1 gals, if you don't mind shipping

I grow Sunrise.  Doesn't have the musk smell, and is very sweet.  Highly recommend.

Dwarf Hawaiian, too

I have a Diamond River.  I just give the fruit a slight tug.  If they come off easily, then I know they're ripe

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fairchild Ross Sapote rootstock
« on: September 21, 2021, 01:32:10 PM »
Does anyone know what Fairchild uses as rootstock for their Ross Sapote?  I bought a Ross Sapote, and unfortunately, it died above the graft.  Fortunately, the rootstock is thriving.

When the calyxes by the stem curl off the skin.

Let them soften on the counter till the fruit looks rotten, starts to collapse on itself, and the stem starts to tear off when picked up
