Here's a couple pics from 2008 when we bought the place
I want to thank Sam for being so generous in making the video and for my lovely wife surprising me with it. Enjoy and thanks for watching
I was wondering if anyone grows Issai Kiwi and the Fuzzies? I have both. The Fuzzy I bought both male and female, over q year ago. No fruit yet.
As for the Issai, I grew 3 from seed about 5 years ago, and also, no fruit yet.
Anyone have any experience with them, and/or could give me some tips that
might get them fruiting? I'm getting old and want to see fruit, LOL!
i got very interested in tropical/sub-tropical fruits in the last couple of years,
and now have "caught the bug". so, i have either purchased small plants, or raised from seed several types of fruit trees.
I am wondering if anyone has any input as to what might grow here successfully ?
In addition to the ones in the heading...
Lychee, Mango, black sapote, Mamey, POM
I have Jackfruit, starfruit, Jaboticaba, Loquat and others...
but i think these will be OK ?
i read a lot of forums posts, but mostly they are from Florida and California.
Not many South Louisiana growers
or, if there are, i cant find them.
So, in addition to the heat and freezes,
i am guessing i have to worry about rainfall
(New Orleans is in the top 5 cities in the US in rain)
humidity (very humid here), hours of sunshine ??
any ideas, comments appreciated...
