What a wonderful opportunity! I've already reserved my Cherry of Rio Grande (now WHERE will I put it??) and printed directions to get there.
Ya'll come out. It'll be a lot of fun. And if you don't know Ed he knows EVERYTHING about growing exotic/rare fruit here.
Ed-where can I get star fruit plants? Caldwell?
Tally HO!

I was at Cornelius on Dairy Ashford RD this week and they had some nice Star Fruit plants for sale. They also had Cacao, Dragon Fruit and Avocados.

Good Luck!
