Hello everyone, I can't believe I did not find this forum earlier especially since I have a problem which I will throw at you shortly in the correct thread  ;D
I live in Orlando Florida for the past 20 years and love all tropical plants, especially bananas with their huge beautiful leaves. In my small back yard I have several banana varieties, and then single plants: Lychee 'Emperor', Barbados Cherry (which I never get any fruit since the wildlife harvests all), Peach, Nectarine, Miracle Fruit, Dragon Fruit, potted Meyer Lemon, Mango 'Carrie', Canistel and a Wurtz Avocado (my problem child)
Great to be here, and I am looking forward reading through the wealth of knowledge in this forum. :-)

Hello!
New member from SWFL. I am new to growing fruit trees, and am already lost in the world of mangoes. I have mango and other tropical fruit trees in my small backyard. The learning from having different fruit trees has been great, and I am loving it.

 :) Hi, I'm Loretta from N. Central Florida.  I am brand new here.  I started growning papaya trees from seed and they are doing beautifully.  I have one tree that I purchased from Lowe's that is actually older than the seed trees and it has barely grown!  It's been a year.   It's just 3 foot tall.  My largest tree had close to 20 frut on the main stalk.  It broke overnight and I am trying to rescue the fruit.  I know some are too young and they are oozing that white milky substance.  I think I might lose my first bunch but will watch diligently to protect new fruit.   I thought I was going to have lots of fruit to dry and some fresh to much on too.  Sad that they might have worms.

Popsicle, I'm sorry to hear about your tree breaking. I hear you can cook immature fruits like squash or make "zucchini" bread with them. I have not made either but have eaten the bread that people made--it was really yummy. I have made Thai green papaya salad--it is good too.

Hi all 👋, I'm Jesse from Portland! While in Portland, I volunteer at the Home Orchard Education Center, which grows dozens of apple and pear cultivars while also having grapes, persimmons, hardy kiwi, medlar, pawpaw and a few other less-common fruits. I love being in the Pacific Northwest during the summer for all the berries we have here! I also grow tropical fruit in Southwest Florida: mangos, atemoya, jackfruit, lychee, jaboticaba, carambola, guava, papaya, avocado, dragon fruit, passion fruit, and some citrus -- the collection grows each year with a few new trees. Thanks for having me here and looking forward to the conversations!

Hi All,

My name is Jon and I live in Baltimore, MD.  I've always been attracted to knowledge available to a limited/select group of people, and over the last few years that has extended to tropical fruit.  Like many of you, I collect entirely too many tropical plants considering my zone (7a), and grow a slew of fruits that are appropriate to my location as well.  I have a few things to sell/trade, and questions to ask to help determine the best candidates to add to my collection.  I am a distiller by trade, and am always researching options that can be sustainably made into spirits/liqueurs/beverages of any sort.  Happy to offer any of my knowledge to those who may benefit from it.  I look forward to getting to know many of you :)

Cheers!
