  • Hand pick the berries and dispose in plastic bags
*Perform herbicide applications before fruit onset to avoid another generation of plants.
Triclopyr product, such as Brush-B-Gon®, is available in local garden and hardware stores."

The heart wood is beautiful and kin to the mahogany.
Home of Cactus Flats Botanical Gardens.
I kill my lobster with a 30-06.
But of course I live in Texas and the dam things are huge.
