Re: Tales of SH-3640's

Yes, thanks. The fires are several miles southeast of us. Last year's Thomas Fire came within about a mile of us. That was scary.

Hmmm, nothing about that looks anything like a Brazilian I've ever seen. Especially with that color, I'm thinking it must be something else.

Re: Dwarf Brazilian Taste Test Results

All the fruit I ever saw from Dwarf Brazilian were more elongated with a bottleneck tip. Those don't resemble the ones I have seen.
