Black barjacota fig planted

I see a lot of chestnuts on the ground. Do you roast or boil them?


#344

Love them both ways, but roasted are easier to peal :slight_smile:
Love them in stews and sunday roasts also replacing the potatoes


#345

And fake cheap nigra (its not nigra lol) planted between some brambles lol


#346

Back to the orchard, doing some mulching around the trees and decided to move/transplant some to another places in the orchard with a bit more Light.

. Uvaia, rio grande cherry, and grumichama did really poorly last year, no growth at all and almost dead this winter, i think i choose a very humid and dark shade place in the orchard. Decided to transplant these to a more open area place, more light, lets see if they bounce back
Rio grande cherry

Uvaia

Grumichama

Then i decided to transplant 2 little morus nigras, which did poorly last year, they are in a more open area this year

Finally also transplanted 2 of my Madeira Mulberries to a more sunny place


#347

Next mulberries on the way, one of them known in Europe as “sangue e latte”, blood and milk.
Photos from some italian collectors also. My clone will be from the same nursery.

I do recognize the bottom one :open_mouth: Wow I haven’t seen that one in forever! It’s indeed top notch in taste, take good care of it please.

Was overwintering some suriname cherry seedlings and inga vulpina. Gonna risk and plant them now in the orchard. Hope they survive…


Inga vulpina


Suriname cherry


#351

The ingas and surinam cherry are too small. You should wait at least one year to surinam cherries and two for ingas…


#352

Ok Luis, i"ll do that, thank you :slight_smile:


#353

Surinam will turn all red when it gets cold :smiley: I can’t even recognize mine anymore.


#354

Also have a few hundred seedlings from last year in pots in the orchard, might put a few in the ground. They survived the winter fine in the open.
. Curuba, banana passionfruit
. Feijoas
They were all from grocery fruits seeds i put on pots and left them outside last year.

Soon i"ll receive a few cuttings of silk hope from a nice member here. I tried to root silk hope before and was never sucessful, that member also tried and never managed too. I"ll try grafting, but i am not very good on it…
I can graft to one of my cheap albas, or planatifolia mulberry. We’ll see if i manage to get at least one take


#360

Silk Hope is a M. alba cultivar?
