Since it warmed up to 87 degrees today in good ol' S Fla, decided to plant AE #2 in the ground. AE #1 went in 2 weeks ago. Now I'm committed - we'll see how the winter goes.

AE AE #2



AE AE #1


Wish me luck. PSL had 4 frosts last winter and I lost all the mature naners. All the mats survived but no fruit for '09. Exceptions were the Hua Moa and the Goldfinger. The Gfingr is hanging about 80 fruit right now and the HM came in in the summer.

Eric, just a suggestion, but Kaye might not like her last name and address shown in public, so you might want to edit the photo to eliminate it.

Congrats on the seeds; good luck!

No problem. Hope those seeds grow for you as fast as they supposedly grow for one of our newer members (a scammer, it seems) who claims on eBay they might germinate in transit!

No problem about the info, Eric. We have a website and my name and address are out there. BUT Harvey makes an excellent point about not posting info about others without their permission!! Thanks, Harvey!

The seeds I've sent out were soaked like tomato seeds, allowing them to ferment somewhat so that they could be more easily removed. Then cleaned, they were transferred to a seed sprouter where they were rinsed daily in a distilled water/peroxide solution to hasten sprouting and eliminate infection.

I know that a LOT of e-bay and other internet sellers make many false claims to sell their products! But some of the seeds I had were sprouting in the sprouter. I did not send those, but planted them in soil immediately. However I would not have been surprised if some of them did sprout in the few days while they were in route to their new homes. (I did send them in a damp plastic bag so they would not dry out.)

I am NOT selling anything on e-bay and never have, although I have made purchases. I know NOTHING about any seller advertising that their seeds may sprout in transit, but I do think it's possible.

I don't know why you say that, all it takes is a little warmth and moisture. Velutina is the weed of the banana family, about as difficult to grow from seeds as marigolds. Before I joined this org and realized that people actually wanted them I always cut the fruit off and threw it away before they popped open and the birds scattered seeds all over the backyard. A year later I'm still finding them coming up.

Today I planted one Saba I've had in Large pot for awhile, and two Dwarf Namwas in the same size pots also went into the ground. I also planted two smaller but good sized Kandarians. I planted these near a Thai Black.

Couple of days ago planted 10 Swiss Chard, 2 "Cross" pups and 1 Pigeon Pea bush. This was before the next 3 days of frost was announced!!! Logee's Ladyfinger is on the right.

Garden seedlings --- 4 basil, 1 Thai pepper, 2 flat leaf parsley, and 6 assorted types each of tomato and peppers. The basil and tomato were replacements for frost damaged plants.

Things are looking up. Forcast highs for tomorrow and Fri are 80 and 82F.

Might try fishing in the Indian river Fri if I can get a line in between all the dead fish and manatees. The water is heating up now and they are starting to rise from the bottom and float. What a mess!
