WOW, all that passion fruit? I couldn't get one bloom this year from store bought fruit planted last year!
I did pick all my concord grapes today. I only have one vine growing along fence but I got 7 lbs of grapes. I did not fert them this year & only watered them once, but I did spray 2 -3 times with Joe Real's AZ41 so I'm happy w/ what I got. Tomorrow I'll get the rest as it was getting dark out & I couldn't see. Here comes grape jelly & juice!

Mangos! Totally awesome flavor from small ones that are falling off the tree. The larger ones are still hanging on.

Default Re: What did you harvest today (other plants)?

I'm not certain what forum I'm in. If it's bamboo, I found that the Heights, a good-size area a couple miles from downtown Houston, is loaded with it - skinny to very tall. I'd always considered bamboo fairly rare in Houston, but not in that area. Some bananas, a fig now and then, and almost nothing from the peach-plum-pear-apple line. Just not enough chill anymore, nothing like 20 years ago, a sign of the times. And the forest around Houston has both wild pears and wild plums - a couple varieties. Bradfords are cute, but wild pears are so much earlier and beautiful while flowering.
If the topic is Praying Hands, then let me say it is the grandest of all my pads, simply towering over all others, a breed apart here in Houston, and with fruit too.
As for flowering, that's it, I don't know how they figure out when fall is - they grow very well, but generally do not flower after August. The grove will be noticeably higher end October than it is right now. When you have a number of pads, it's true that you can tell when a stalk is going to flower - it simply reaches a certain girth. Right now is the drolls - nothing to fertilize, nothing to cut, no new pods. We get to eat a few now and then. The action has really gone to the figs - waking up, new leaves, fruit is starting to appear. These things get loaded with a fall crop, their second in a year, but the cold usually keeps us from eating many. You can grow an easy 10 varieties in Houston, that's ten distinguishable by their fruit, but just for summer eating, and oddly, they grow very slowly, inches a year, except for Celeste (I believe) which accounts for all the giant plants you see around Houston - can be as big as a small two-story house.
For the moment, the bananas just stand there being pretty; actually, probably sweating a bit over this record cold winter we're supposed to have. But, just like low-chill peaches, just give them an excuse, two warm days, Dec-Jan., and they spike green. Very nice.


Cheers, SB

Question Re: What did you harvest today (other plants)?

Love those passion fruits. I was able to harvest only a few grape tomatoes. All of my cherry tomatoes and big tomatoes were eaten by my deer friends. I wonder whether passion fruit trees are deer resistent. But the deer in my neighborhood are so hungry that they will even eat my canna flowers.

Kondozi melon, a rare melon from Afghanistan. The leaves had covered it well the pill bugs had started at it before I noticed it today and picked it. Nice light green flesh, firm, great flavor. A friend had given me seeds a couple of years ago and I had a hard time getting them to germinate. This came from a plant grow a long ways away from any other melon so I expect it's offspring to come true to type.

I picked, possibly, my last tomatoes of the season. Cold front moved in yesterday. Last night dipped to 35 and tonight is supposed to get colder.

Erik:
What kind of persimmons do you have? I've got Fuyo which is just turning yellow right now. I figure another month and I will start harvesting. The shape is not the same as yours.
