Hello all
glad to find a place to share info.
I have had a desire to grow exotic and tropical fruit for sometime
started last year with Papaya, Guava, and have seeds i had bought for many other things (strawberry tree, goji, passion-fruit and many herbals)
I have a mature satsuma that produces very sweet fruit if anyone wants
i can provide seeds or even cuttings.
I am always looking for something new to grow.

Also looking for the best papaya to grow from a taste standpoint.
i know i can grow them here.

The first one looks like a passion flower, the second one looks like a cherimoya.
