  • Hey guys I'm back from my Military Deployment...it's been awhile

    First thing....There's no place like home!!! So happy to be back with my family and Fruit family as well.

    I have a few Mangoes Ripening as we speak including the Famous "Sweet Tart" Variety created by the Zill Family that has won top honors in almost every major tasting event over at the Tropical fruit Forum.... I had the pleasure of eating 3 Ronde De Bordeuxs off of my young tree that I received from a great forum member here.... I must say for a first year Tree....this Fig did not disappoint with it's incredible sweet, berry, jammy deliciousness! I also have 3 Col De Dame Blanc Figs ripening soon I hope so I can give them a first time taste, and I have 2 small Violette De Bordeuxs also awaiting a first time taste!!!

    The Wife managed to root and cup almost 10 Figs that I got from Harvey C after I deployed, but unfortunately due to poor watering...they bit the dust... I have a Smith, El Molino, and Borjasotte de Noir that I have revived from the Grave yard and are looking good now.... Bless her Heart she tried lol

    Glad to be back here in this community as well!!!!
