Surinam is sweeter, but more cold sensitivity. Black Surinam is suppose to taste the best.

Has anyone in the more northern sections of FL or CA (zone 9) tried growing Nanking cherries? They're relatively inexpensive plants that produce small (nearly all pit) fruits that make great jams and a killer cordial (soak them in vodka). Growing them would be pushing the zone hard but sometimes it works. (BTW, if anyone has seeds or seedlings, I am very interested in obtaining some.)

Actually by leaving the pits in the mix you end up a touch of almond flavor and a beverage very close, IMO, to Cherry Heering. That and Brass Monkey (not the drink but a green chartreuse of sorts that would knock you over) are 2 memories from college; I'm not sure I want to know how to make the latter or should...

BTW, covered up for the arctic blast my tomatoes bloomed; they get another shot this week. Brrrrrr!

I ordered some seeds for the capulin cherry tree. They are supposed to be hardy to below twenty degrees and require no chill to set fruit. Here is some information:
