Unseasonably Warm – Under the Jakfruit Tree

We have been experiencing unseasonably warm weather which is unusual for this time of year. 
As a result many of the trees and plants are growing more than usual. 
Remember to keep your plant well hydrated. The humidity  is low as do evaporation is high. 
We are presently harvesting Jujube, Carambola, Sapodilla and Bananas. 
In addition we have several varieties of herbs ready for sale. 
Come on down we will tour the nursery in a golf cart and show you many of our trees when full grown. 
Several of our flowering trees are in bloom,  for example the true Hong Kong Orchid tree. Bauhinia Blakeana which in the #1 tree to attract Humming Birds. 

Until next time

Sapodilla

I hope everyone had a good Holiday! 
Now we can settle down to normal. 
We are presently harvesting Jujube, 
Sapodilla, Carambola and some Chinese cabbage. 
The weather has been unusually warm for this time of year which has caused normally dormant trees and plants to slow down growth wise. 
Plants however are growing nicely. 
We have a good assortment of herbs for sale. 
I continually get calls regularly for citrus trees. Because of Citrus Greening which is a fatal and incurable disease we do not recommend nor sell citrus trees. In addition almost all citrus trees are grown in North Florida in quarantine on a root stock not suitable to our alkaline South Florida soil. The result is that the fruit tends to be pithy and not sweet. 
That’s 
all from under the Jakfruit tree, until next time. 
In the mean time we ask that you like us on Face Book and Yelp.
