Very interesting new variety for our SoCal climate.
I heard that it will pollinate Minnie Royal and Royal Lee, but does it require cross pollinating?

Today I planted some more seeds from my Canistel, and Sapodilla a few pineapple cuttings, and a bunch of flowers to lure more pollinators to the bee food desert (not dessert) of Coral Springs Florida.

I wonder when I'm going to get a code violation for letting my grass get tall enough for the weeds to flower for the bees. :-)

I planted several things yesterday. I need to continue my mission today and plant more stuff.

Currently working on our wind break. It will consist of Jakfruit, Ice Cream bean, Gliricidia, Kukui nuts, and also Loquat. I planted a Maoli Maoli, two Fe'i, Chupa-Chupa and a Mexican Avocado that you can eat the skin and cook the leaves. Hopefully everything is happy.

I have placed updates by the list in the quote below. Last week I planted two LI jujube and a GA 866 Jujube! In pots I planted nine Grapes 3 Villard Blanc, 3 Blanc du Bois and 3 Victoria Red. They will pair with my Champanel grapes.

Yes I am. It tested at 6.0. I was way overwatering and I have cut back to only watering as needed now. This has been a very wet Spring and just thus month we already have 9" of rain with almost two more weeks left. I have not done the soil testing I need to do but will have excessive time in my hands from now on. As of July 14 I will be retired and I am only working two days a week till then. If needed I will start limimg. I feel like I will have the time to maximize the potential for all oif my plants citrus and otherwise. It will be up to mother nature then and I will see what the trees can do. Since the pictures they have grown exceedingly well and most have filled their allotted space with some exceeding their space. Icut back the Fina Sodea this year as it had grown into the muscadine rows that are planted between the citrus rows and it has a large crop on it now.The muscadines are on six feet tall double Geneva curtain style trellis. This puts them up into the sun and out of the shade of the citrus. It maximizes space and both seem to be happy growing together. I'll have to post a picture of the area now.
