Re: How long does it take for Blue Java fruit to ripen?

There are quite a few I think are better tasting. Namwahs are one of the best, I think, though I like the tanginess of DBs, Mysore, and Raja Puri too, probably more so as ones to eat every day. My...

Re: Bittersweet Bloom

I heard that you're not supposed to add nitrogen during fruiting, as it can cause the fruit to rot. If anything, add potassium.

Re: Banana Score!

If it were me I would cut most of the p-stem off, trim all the roots off and get a potato peeler to scrape back the corm till it is white.

Re: Florida: The Frozen South

Cold wind tends to blow from the northwest over the lake. So the relatively warm lake water heats the air up as it comes across. The shoreline where I am at runs SW-NE so cold air has to travel...
