Thank’s! :smile:

Pepino melon (Solanum muricatum) fruits…


#531

Ha, but it’s great to grow, things like bananas, passiofruits, avocados, guavas and anonnacea… :grin:


#532

I want to have papaya trees because i want to use it as fruit and vegetable… :blush:


#533

I’m trying to get there, the salt isn’t helping :slight_smile: Figs and olives are thriving.


#534

LOL! Figs and olives are easy… i didn’t know you have salt problems… and citrus?


#535

Citrus is also thriving up north, I’m in center where it starts to get a bit arid and salty, hence mangos aren’t happy either :smiley: The problem is more in the irrigation water rather than in the soil.


#536

You make chemical correction to whater?


#537

I’m all ears! I try to help with collected rain water when plants are really sensitive such as mangos but otherwise, they better adapt :smiley: During wet months everything thrives!


#538

What about doing hugulkulture and planting logs and trees under the citrus or near it underground to create reservoirs to hold the water from the wet season longer into the dry season. Can you do woodchips or mulches to conserve more water?

Im glad papaya leaves are good for stuff luis, It may be one of my least favorite fruits. For tropical fruit salad Its like the peanut diluting all the amazing walnuts hazelnuts and pecans.


#539

Thank’s! Regarding papaya i know in Asia countries they use green fruits to cook like they do with green mangos. But i like the idea of using leaves and fruit… that’s great they do so well to us.
