Default New Ice Cream Bunch

I think JoeReal will find this interesting. Remember my Ice Cream that was just pushing a paddle when you came by?

Well here she is this morning - moving right along. Hope I have time to mature the fruit before first frost.

Super pic, Mike. Can I ask what the flowering height is? I've got a couple of plants, myself, here in the UK and was wondering when they'll out grow my conservatory. Thanks.

The parent plants of my Ice Creams have very blue-ish fruit. Will yours turn blue later?

My Ice Creams bloom at 11-12ft Trunk + leaves.

The do have a somewhat Blueish Hue when compared to other vatieties that I have. But, hands down Raja Puri is a tastier fruit.

Where are you located? Some of us don't know. I thought you were here in GA with me but that might have been someone else.

Yeah, it would sure be nice if everyone would fill in the LOCATION part of their profile. Someone offers a plant for sale or trade and you have to ask where they are. I promise I won't sneak over at night and steal all your nanners.
