Re: AARP is Fake News!

Richard to not watch the news is not a bad thing altogether. Most all the media is driven by sensationalism and they really don't do much investigative journalism any more.

What's going on in your...

Re: AARP is Fake News!

Hi Richard as I looked at the box it looked 75% in the yellow box and only 25% in the orange! IMHO no part of it belonged anywhere near the yellow box.

Re: AARP is Fake News!

The media bias chart was the biggest piece of liberal comedy I've seen recently!

The Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC offer "fair interpretations of the news"!

ROTFLMAO!

Re: Fertilizer

If Momma pushes four or five leaves before she pushes a bloom you should get fruit this year and in time to bloom. You should get a bloom off the mid size pup. It's even possible to get the small pup...

Re: Fertilizer

Yes and you will undoubtedly gain 5 - 7 pups.

Remember that if you are seriously looking for production in your area you should have only one pup in the 5 - 6 foot range at spring wake up. Then...

Re: Creating Albums & Posting Photos

I know this comment was years ago but I never liked the idea of Photobucket or any of the other ones and now years later I know why. Seems they have decided to extort money from everyone that had...

Re: Time from basal swelling to fruiting?

I've never called it a pre flag leaf. I've always called it a half leaf for obvious reason. Most of the time its right at half length. That's what I've observed in my climate and with my...

Re: Anyone in FL or SoCal growing chinkapin aka dwarf chestnut?

Richard,

I have a friend in Pace, Florida which is 8b/9a growing them. They are a native plant here. I'll try to get an answer on the chill hours for you.

Re: Registered Pawpaw varieties in USA

2017 Update

Finally I ate my first PawPaw grown on my tree. It was not without help that I achieved this milestone. Earlier this year Jose263 brought pollen sourced from a friend in Louisiana and...

Re: Banana nectar?

Orinoco is great! Sweet! However do not taste the fluid (sap) from the p-stem. Very nasty. I had heard that you can hollow out a stem to collect water to drink in a survival situation. Having tasted...

Re: Zebrina Rojo, edible leaves?

To be clear, are we speaking of using the leaves as a cooking vessel but NOT EATING THE LEAVES! Right?

Re: Pink Bananas

Re: Dwarf Nino

I define short season as any that will bloom from an P-stem or from an established mat and have time to mature or plump enough to hang and ripen in one season. The zone designator should tell you if...
