Default Re: California gold

Gina, Joe gave me a Cal Gold a few years ago that was already nearly fully grown when he gave it. It flowered a week or two after I transplanted it. It was something like 9' 10" tall (pseudostem)! Joe got his from Mike in Antioch who, in turn, got his from Jeff Earl. For a while Jeff had some mix-ups due to some vandalism to his garden at a church property and I think this might be some other unknown as what Jeff has established as California Gold usually fruits at 5'-6' tall. Not that it really matters, other than maybe it will be harder to get yours inside!
