Re: Blue Java and Pisang Abu Perak?

Re: Golden Rhino Horn Banana

Not sure about golden rhino horn but I have the pineapple variety. Doesn't taste like pineapple at all. Supposedly it is a variation that formed from Raja Puri tissue cultures. Maybe it tastes...

Re: PATUPI, beautiful bunch & tasting.

Re: Tall banana tiny fruits

I have 4 varieties of pome and outside of those 4 the rest are pretty rare in the states. None of them make this tiny buds and hands are normally fuller. Pome bases are often thick and these bases...

Re: Tales of SH-3640's
