Veinte Cohol used as packing material this time, one was huge but no pics.

Enjoy.

Are you still selling these? I've wanted one for a long time but you never asked for payment so I assumed you had stopped. Just thought I'd check and make sure I wasn't missing something. Thanks

I haven't had the time to ship out any boxes of just fruit lately and I don't ask for payment until after the boxes are packed and labels ready to be printed. The fruit being shipped out now have been used as packing material to keep the Manini corms from getting damaged.


Instead of having anyone wait for a long time, it's probably best to stop shipping fruit.

I'm happy that some members were able to taste a few bananas that they might not otherwise had the opportunity to.

Ah okay, you were serious lol. I guess I never really considered actually using Banana's as packing material. I just wanted to be sure. Maybe next time. Thanks

I would really rather wait than lose out altogether.
