Re: Super dwarf cavendish shipped to Latvia

I would ship to you if I could, or if it's possible. I don't know how much it would cost to mail it?
I'm looking into it a little

Re: Containers and fruit

I was expecting 3 years because thats what the catalog said, so I was pleased when it started fruiting. And yes I still have filling time, around 4 -6 months especially if it went through winter

It's good that you got all of yours in even if it didn't freeze!

Re: Iholena blooming late! :(

Re: Fill in time for raja puri?

No I will be digging it out, unless it's filled out enough to cut and let ripen in here. Have 60-80 days till frost.
