I guess we'll find out how tall the house is when I update the pics after the guessing's over LOL. Are you sure you can't think of another variety it might be? LOL Hmmm, sure, I'll send ya a hand if ya can send me another one of your TC's, MAN are they're doing GREAT! Sandy defiantely has a great source. If you don't mind buying smaller sized plants that are TC's, buy from her!!! Go read what I wrote for ya on the updated first post (at the bottom)!

Hey Sandy! I also thought it looked like Ice Cream, but the rules said only one guess, so I went with Dw Brazilian.

My Ice Cream is sending up it's flag leaf and if you don't get any fruit by the time it ripens, I'll send you some. You may have to wait a couple years for yours to fruit.



I first got mine in July of '06, and it is only now flagging 2 winters/3 summers later. Problem is, I just cut off the big pup, so my next bunch of fruit will prolly be delayed as I don't have a fully developed daughter plant for next year. I might get lucky, though...

Good luck!

I second that last remark!! I just wish she had a bigger selection of FHIA varieties... (wink, wink, nudge, nudge...)

You all just keep showing your flagging ice creams just to torture me! Im going to climb up there and trim my new leaf into a flag --do you think that will work? This darned plant is just starting its third summer. It'll probably bloom in October like the last one.

I hope it fits in your greenhouse standing up if it blooms that late!!! Don't think trimming will work... we'd all be doing that!!! LOL

I'll take hua moa if it's not taken, (but I still think it's an ice cream)
I think the hua moa and ice cream look very similar plant-wise.
