Thank you! Right now it contains green beans, kale, collards, peppers, tomatoes, basil, celery, sweet potatoes, cabbage, Calabaza pumpkins, and some crappy zucchini plants that never produced anything are on their way out.

Your patch is doing great! Squirrels are a pain. Once they get the taste for nanners there is only one solution.

BBJ, how long did your dwarf namwa take to go from peeper to fruit? How long do you estimate it will take for the 2'-3' pup next to the fruiting dwarf namwa to fruit? I have a two to three foot pup and wondering if I have a channce this year for fruit.

I have a Tramontina machete too. Got mine at Lowes. Great machete!

I got my DN from Ty in November 2019 as a tissue culture. It was two or three years old Ty said because it was from a variegated parent. He kept it in a tiny pot to see if it would revert back to being variegated. Picture is about a month after receiving it....




The largest pup came up in November I think. It should fruit in maybe August? I donít really know.

Gotcha. That's an unusual situation in regards to your Dwarf Namwa. Thanks.
