Tropical Fruit Discussion / How to make Surinam Cherry taste better?
« on: August 24, 2021, 12:57:05 AM »
Here is what I did.  Put the Surinam cherry in a bowl of cold water and let it sit for few hours.  That is make it taste a lot better. If not eat the peel, totally tasty.  Cold water is cold not room temperature water.  Add ice to it is even better.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / PPC self-pollination?
« on: August 02, 2020, 12:19:22 PM »
I grafted couple scions of the PPC to a cherimoya rootstock early this spring.  I want the scions grow bigger so I didn't hand pollinated any of the flowers.  Even though most of the flowers dropped, but I still have 3 fruits.  Is PPC self-pollination?
