Hey Joe,

All of your trees look Great!  Congrats on the New Rollinia and Posh-Te, they too look Great!  They are really big and have really good color and look really healthy.  I am glad to see that they arrived in good condition.

JF,

Love every picture! Posh-Te looks like a tasty fruit. You are growing all the good tropical fruits, I love the choices in your collection.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Thanks everyone. Most of the mangos will take this year off and concentrate on growing. I left out my Manila, Ataulfo and Mallika. They are all flowering but I will graft 10 new varieties on to my Manila and Ataulfo in May.....these are seedlings that were disappointing. Missing from the update were my avocados, guavas, longan, persimmon, annonas, citrus, peach and bananas. Thank you Jacob for the tip on the Rollinia and Posh-Te they are great looking trees which I hope to fruit some day. Here are random pics of some of the other stuff around here.

Orale! You have one of largest Left Coast mango collections. And what a yield from your orange or tangerine tree.

that's my bloods and the others are my Navel and Golden Nugget. What I'm most impress with is my Star blueberries there are hundreds of them. I will protect and treasure them this year. I have tried to grow blueberries for years and I finally found a variety that works here.......thanx Florida for the Star Blueberry.

I have a small potted one called "Red Naval Orange" I better pay more attention to. Small but with two oranges developing. Glad your Florida blueberry is working out.

Can't ask for much better looking plants than these.  Remarkable!  Love to see those cherimoyas producing so well.  Thanks for posting.

Joe, all your plants look amazingly healthy.  I hope my plants look as good as yours when they get a little larger.  What varieties of Lychee, Longan and Cherimoya are you currently growing?  You are like the Harry of SoCal.  Please let me know if you ever have a fruit tasting! 8)

How are you Simon,

Thanks for your complements. My Lychee is a Sweetheart and it's pushing something - I don't know if it's new growth or flowers. The Longan is a Kohala seedling and my cherimoyas are Pierce and Booth. I will be grafting Big Sister, Saber, Selma, El Bumpo, Fino D' Jete, Elixer(Eunice Messner cultivar)  , and a few more that I can't remember, onto my my Pierce and Booth. I expect to have 6 or 7 cultivars on each tree. I'm far from King Harry he has a Hacienda in Davis FL....I have a mango patch in La Habra CA LOL
