Hello giving this away - has it for about 1 year - donít really like the fruit . Message me if your interested in picking up. Iím in Davie FL. I can leave it outside in front yard  to avoid any type of contact.

Thatís my Pickering going off!  😬

Hereís  my Peach Cobbler, I put her in the ground Aug 2019, she was container grown for 5 years while we were renting . Itís her third year of flowering and first year holding fruit - not many only 2 - Iím sure next year will be better.

Thanks Oolie, Iím sorry I forgot to clarify that I have the tank that feeds to the pump - the previous  owner of house had it installed.  Ive just never added anything into it because Iím afraid I will damage my trees and garden beds which the past owner didnít have. He just had grass , some palms and shrubs.

Hey guys thanks for your input - after talking to the gentlemen in homestead I decided to wait and do some more research . He told me the nuts he plants are from a true dwarf figi - he wouldnít tell me where he gets them from and I understand - I guess. He also said that he doesnít sell them for the coconuts - he  sells them entirely for landscaping which I thought was odd - when I asked them if they where sweet he said that heís never tasted them before- I felt he was getting annoyed by me for asking so many questions  - anyhow I found a place in Davie that has these Dwarf Malaysians - they are a little more pricey the others .

Please help me , I want to buy good healthy dwarf coconuts! Thanks!

Hey thanks for catching my mistake - itís a sugar belle. Glad to hear there are folks having success growing them. I will look into Kishu , it would be nice to extend season some. Thanks for your help!

Just added this beauty to my small but growing collection. I know citrus isnít the smartest tree to plant in south Florida because of their disease issues - but apparently this variety is more tolerant . Anyone have any success with sugar belles in Florida? Chime in please. Thanks

Thanks! Any idea when fruits will form?
