Happenings in my garden
My trees are finally getting old enough to start producing. It is fun going out every day and seeing what is new!
Here are some pictures of new happenings with my fruit trees lately:
My first rheedia edulis/garcinia intermedia (or who knows what else it is called!) fruit:
My abiu starting to grow fruit, not as many as last year.
Pitomba - my very 1st flowers
Rollinia - first time it fruited
Soursop getting ready!
I had some jackfruits last month... maybe they were more ripe this year, as they were less sticky, and thus easier to cut/eat. But the smell still turns me off.
Loads of caimitos are ripe.
And the canistel are yellowing up.
Nispero "Prolific" is starting to develop more fruits from the zillion flowers it makes. I guess it is now mature enough.
The avocados are growing nicely (one is a seedling tree). The seedling fruit is earlier than my other tree,so it will extend my season a bit.
I tasted my first grumichama (only 1 fruit on the plant!). It was good, I will prune the bush back and hope for more next time.
I also had my first Surinam cherry from plant I grew from a different set of seeds. This one is MUCH better (larger and less astringent) than my other plant. I think the first Surinam cherry is going to be axed to make room for something else.
