I harvested the fruit off of my 'California Gold'. See the thread for details.

Congratulations Tony! Do any of your Goldfinger fruit have a "dryish" center?

Do you have any friends with Tortoises?

Tortoises love to eat raw banana blooms (we pass them a long to a friend with a rescue reserve for turtles & tortoises).

We have gopher tortoises here in So Fla -- Gopherus polyphemus.

Many times have come home to see one crossing the street. Carefully drive over or around them then pick 'em up and carry them to the vacant lot they were headed to. They are big and move kinda slow.

Gopher tortoises are known as a keystone species. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission states that the gopher tortoise provides refuge for as many as 350 to 400 species. They live in burrows.



I'll remember to save the banana flowers from now on for these guys. Thanks for the info.

80lb bunch of Manzanos and 35lb bunch of Dwarf Cavendish. Sorry no pics as I have given the DC's away to the gardeners and it is too dark to take photos of the Manzanos - tomorrow perhaps.
