JB Fla:

Thanks for posting your yeard pics. You have a nice selection of trees/plants and all appear to be really healthy and well grown. Your mulberry reminds me how lush mine used to be.....its really gorgeous. In my area of Florida, there is something that causes these Pakistani Mulberries to go into decline. How old is yours and where did you get it?

Harry-

I bought my mulberry from Edible Landscaping in VA four years ago as a 3' grafted stick. It grows very very fast. I have already pruned it twice this year, each pruning cutting back about 10' of overall growth.

I remember reading that you had some sort of rust or fungus, but I hve not encountered that, at least not yet.

If your looking to retry growing the Pakistan Mulberry let me know and I can try to propagate some.

JB....how well does your fruit? I might be interested in trying again with a new planting. Have you ever posted pictures of the fruit? Do you have pictures? Contact me whenever you have any available and I am sure we can work a trade. Thanks.

JB, your plants look great...I really like how full and lush your Jaboticaba is. You obviously have a green thumb! Great job!

Hey JB,

Thanks for sharing, you have got some really great stuff and everything looks so lush and healthy. You guys have that perfect weather over there in Florida. How do you use or what do you do with the Kratom plant? I would also be interested in trading for some cuttings of that Magnificent Mulberry Specimen.

Thanks again for sharing,

Jacob

Great pictures! Thanks for posting pictures of whole plants. I have been curious what plants like the COTRG look like. Most of the pictures that google brings up are close ups of the fruit. Would you say the COTRG is maintainable at its current size? Or will it grow a lot larger?

COTRG is a bush and can be pruned as a hedge or left to grow out.

There is a COTRG in Tampa that was never pruned and it is about 20' tall and 15' wide. But as Mango Kush said, it can easily be pruned to size.

Harry- I have not posted pics of the fruit. The first couple years the fruit tasted a little grassy. But the last two seasons they have been very very good. About 4" long, plump and juicy. They are exceptional if when they turn black but are still good when red. The kids really love them. I dont have to fight the birds as much as the kids shaking the tree to eat them!

Neat. How short could you prune a COTRG & keep it fruitful? Would 4' be reasonable?

For me COTRG is not as prodigious as other 'tropical cherries.' However, it can easily bt kept at about 4' and will no doubt fruit.

hello, may I ask how much larger your grumichama has grown since you posted this? They stay pretty short right? Thanks. :)

Nice Kratom/Korth tree.
I have one about the same size.
I tried to grow cuttings, but they keep dying and never root

Have you tried cuttings ?
