Hello Friends,

Here are some Pictures of some of the things coming out of Dormancy and beginning to flower and fruit, or just grow.

"Pickering Mango" Some of the Fruit is Hanging on and I am excited and encouraged. I would say there are about 30 fruits and they all continue to grow in Size up. Hopefully, it will hold true that the tree will only hold as many fruits as it can, and it will take care of itself.

"Che" or "Melon Berry" - Male and Female trees in the same Pot. I also have a Completely Self-fertile tree that is about the same size but has been out of dormancy about 1 month longer and is full of leaves and branching out like crazy.

Hi Jacob,
Wow! Your Pickering is surely looking good! My Carrie is probobly a few weeks behind yours. My tiny fruits are almost peas sized now. I think about the same thing you have said. My tree is not holding 30 right now, nut probobly 20. One of the inflos is holding about 15 and the other 7 are holding one or 2 fruits a piece. What concerns me is that the smallest inflo is holding the most fruits, though the position is great because that inflo is the closest to the top of the pot. I think that will make it easier for that branch to be supported.

Now my only worry is picking it at the right time. I had heard so many raves about this fruit but then heard if it isn't picked at just he right time, it can have a midicine/herbal after taste. That doesn't sound very appetizing to me!

Please keep up with the pics Jacob! Have you got the last few emails I sent to you? Have you started that 'Violette de Bordeaux cutting yet?

Hi Jacob,
I am very envious of your Dr. Whit cherimoya! But, wow, an impressive collection of tropical fruit trees! I just love how your pickering is setting fruit. I sure do hope you get at least a dozen or more! Also, your "Tabouey x J-30" Jakfruit is beautiful! Will you be pruning this anytime soon?

Also, I wanted to let ya know that I finally got the violette de bordeaux tree and cuttings. HOw did you get your fig cuttings to root? What kind of techniques do you use?

Again, nice collection of tropical fruit trees! It is most inspiring. ( :

Hello Friends,

Thank you all for all of your nice words. This warm weather has been a long time coming and I am so happy that Spring is starting.

Tim - Have not had any fruit on the Mexicola Grande yet, the wind has taken anything that has come close.

Andrew - As always my friend, it is good to hear from you and Thanks for the compliments. Great to hear about your Carrie, it's pretty exciting huh? Check your e-mail, you've got mail.

Tropicaliste - Thanks for the compliments and I will definitely put the age of the trees and their names. I know everything is helpful when growing in pots.

Bo - Thanks for the nice words. I don't plan on Pruning the Jakfruit anytime soon. It seems to be brancing out quite nicely on its own. I plan on planting it out in the next month or so and hope that it will take off this Summer. That is so Awesome that you got the Violette de Bordeaux fig tree. You will be so happy with the Fruit. I have actually only rooted 1 fig cutting, I got mine already rooted so I don't have a whole lot of experience rooting Fig trees. Congrats on your new Fig tree.

Mango Perro - I wish I was in Hawaii

Ethan - My California Brother, thanks for the nice words and I will keep the pictures coming.

Thanks again friends for all of the compliments and I will keep you all posted on the progress.

On your mark, get set, go! the race is on, whos will ripen first!! you have Nancy, from Orlando, and Jacob, from Santa Barbara, in the lead with 30 fruitlets each and MangoGigolo, from Palm Springs, a distance third.
