Are the cashews hardier against cold than coconut palms? how about compared to jakfruit?

I can get a jackfruit to live over a year, but not a coconut palm.

Hello Oolie, I believe cashews are hardier than coconut palms and pretty close to jakfruit when it comes to cold tolerance. Cashews are also very vigorous growers.

Please let me know if you have anymore questions,

So Ethan, are those Macadamia nuts grown in a greenhouse?

Are they self-fertile?

What's the Question?

Hello Fascist Nation, yes the mac trees are currently being grown inside the greenhouse, when older, they can handle a lot more cold. I do have an older seedling in the ground here in Z9 that is about 3' tall and doing fine so far this winter and we've been down to 28F already. The trees are self fertile.

Thanks for your interest and let me know if you have any more questions.

Ethan,
I can't figure out how to send you a PM, but I was wondering if you had an update to this list? I am interested in whatever dragonfruit varieties/species you might have.
Thanks,
Ethan

Hello Ethane,
you can send me an email at redseagardens (at) rocketmail (dot) com , if you'd like, I believe to PM you need a certain amount of posts.

Cheers,

Namibia Orange Dragon Fruit.
Hi Ethan.
My name is Anthony and I am trying to build my D/Fruit collection into something substantial. I have already managed to purchase a number of US varieties but am now looking to get some of the rarer, harder to find varieties and as I live in Queensland, Australia, this is proving to be a bit difficult. I read in one of your earlier post(2012) that you had a Namibia Orange and I was hoping you still had it and would be willing to part with a cutting. Any info on this variety would be appreciated.

Many thanks,
Rannman
