What a gorgeous crop! I mean tomatoes AND tropical fruits! I would not need going to south-east Asia to have those fruits fresh off the vine if I had your garden...

Thank you. I Love the zinnias. The Kale is Red a Russian, or Russian Frills, something like that, can't exactly remember.

I love Cherokee Green! How would you rate it in taste, Marsha?
The taste was sweet and wonderful, and pretty much exactly the same as Cherokee Lime.

I think you should make South Florida a winter destination miss Clara.

Beautiful pics Marsha. I just realized why like Cherokee Lime better than Green.
Clear epi.

Sometimes the obvious escapes me LOL.

Marsha, I know you have other plants and trees to show off. Please do. How is your pomegranate tree doing? And you planted something else that was rare (coffee or chocolate tree).

I swear I can't even tell a difference in taste here,but it might be my growing conditions. I know golks do swear that a clear epi fruit has better taste, especially with antho types. Happy New Year Bill.

Napa Chardonnay has a bit of antho, but its a sweet, delicious, full bodied, good sized cherry. Thanks Clara for the seeds.
Third year in a row growing Olive Hill. So excellent.

Marsha,

Olive Hill is a good one. I had seeds from Remy for years but had not grown it until I saw your thread last year. It is a keeper! How does Lavendar Lake hold up in your heat and humidity?

Lavender Lake - It's medium. Medium taste, medium production, medium size. I have it repeat growing because it's good, and I have the room. Short on room - there are better ones. Margaret Curtain is excellent.
