Re: Dragon Fruit

From what I understand Cross pollination is best.
The pollen does not stay viable for more than a couple of days.
Getting plants to bloom together in a door yard setting is next to impossible.

Re: Misi Luki oor Ice Cream?

Thanks Gabe!
I knew you could settle this.

Re: Mangos

Please remember that nature can be a real trickster when growing Mangoes.
Very rarely are they true to seed. Grafted mangoes are the only sure way to get what you want.
