My small fruit tree orchard


#601

Hi Luis, so no salt issue in the soil or in the irrigation water, right? Your main concern is just cold?


#602

Yes just cold. I live on a limestone area. I have to mulch or fertilize, but that’s all…


#603

Another two videos about Red Ivory mango… just amazing! Just hope my tree survive… :heart_eyes:


#604

My first serviceberry fruits… YUMMY! :yum:


#605

I’m doing excellent my friend, thank you. The garden’s growing, and I’m happy.

The sete capotes sounds aromatic and tasty! I’ll continue collecting myrtles when the time is right.

And the betel leaf? Have you used any yet? Your collection is very impressive! How’s your climate? I’ve been wondering about serviceberries, but I’m not sure they could take my heat and humidity.

Hello Caesar! That’s great everything is good to you and your garden!
Yes sete capotes is great i just love it. Regarding the betel leaf i already try it and i like it. It’s a very versatile and nutricional plant… very interesting!
Serviceberry is a great fruit, very tasty! Even more rich than blueberry! They are doing great here. We had this year maby 0C as lowest temp and hot summers of 43C on hotest days.

Juá-açu (Solanum robustum) is another very rare species. I got flowers last year for the first time, but no fruits. This year they bloom much earlier… Hope to get lucky!

First araça do campo flowers this year…


#614

Does your orchard have both Strawberry and Lemon Guava and if so,which is your favorite?I read that the yellow skinned one has a better flavor,so I grow that and like it.bb


#615

Hi! Yes i have both strawberry and lemon araçá. I have too araçá do campo, una and purple. Regarding flavour they are very variable, you should try the red one too… i’m a fan of araçás, all kinds! :yum:
