Pineapple guava shedding leaves but still a couple of fruit left

I have probably had a dozen little strawberry sized pineapple guavas this year which I am most impressed with as I wasn’t expecting anything. The pulpy center has a very fragrant purfumey taste which my hubby described as soapy but to me, they taste like mixed, tropical, miscellaneous fruit flavour 🙂

Fresh homegrown peaches everyday.

I love picking a few ripe peaches everyday before work/school. Uploading pix as a record of how much I get. I guess I can count them… Or post pics of every harvest 🙂

Tropic Prince Peach ripe already

My little peaches are all blushing and losing all their greeness and after giving them a light squeeze, I guess they were ready for harvest. So soon. And so small! Luckily the stones were tiny, about the size of a marble. Tasted just Ok. Kinda bland. How can I make them sweeter???

Grape trellis looking good but no signs of grapes

I guess I’m not going to get any grapes this year as i believe they are supposed to be popping out of the leaf axial. Leaves look full and healthy though and hopefully I can manage the vines to wrap around the trellis this year so it will be ready for bountiful bunches of grapes…

Mango from seed sprouting already!

The first attempt seed is still not doing anything after three days in the ziplock bag. However, attempt #2 which I only started yesterday is already sprouting! It soaked in water for a little over 24 hrs and I just wrapped it in a damp paper towel and put it in a ziplock. Check out…

Growing mango from seed. Attempt #2

I checked on the mango seed I started a couple of days ago (First attempt) and the paper towel was all brown so I changed it out with a fresh one. That seed was dark brownish in some areas when I pulled him out. As I don’t know if this was normal, and I still…

Tropic Prince Peach – Trellis Trained Container Tree

When I bought this Tropic Prince Peach from Home depot last year, I really wasn’t expecting much from it. This is what it looked like back then. As you can see, many lateral branches with many flower buds waiting to open. Here it is again with Peaches on it Not bad for a $10 experiment!…

NEW container fruit trees for 2012. Pineapple Guava PHOTOS

I bought two of these plants recently from different stores. they look a little different  but both were pretty cheap for fruit trees.I read that you need two to pollinate each other. They make pretty little patio trees. Hope they will bear fruit this year although I have never even seen or eaten a pineapple…
