Re: Hot NOW KY Coffee Trees


Your mention of Kentucky reminded me to tell you about my trees. Three years ago I purchased 3 Kentucky Coffee trees on eBay from a nursery in Kentucky. According to their 'blurb' they had worked in conjunction with the KY Dept of Agriculture to bring this tree back from the brink of extinction. Anyway, this year they have really taken off. If I ever get my camera fixed or just buy a disposable one I'll send pictures. I had heard them discussed at a tree seminar last year as being one of the most underutilized fantastic trees for this area. Guess I'm just ahead of my time. Huh? The foliage is just gorgeous -- kind of fern-like.

Yeah, and it's a shame, too.

University of Kentucky [I think that's right] has a hybridizing program. They're trying to make it a commercial crop. Seems odd that it has taken so long to recognize its potential.

So right now I'm sitting inside, air on, sipping a little white
wine, and trying to figure out where to plant a tree given to us by
the parents of one of Ms. Fatma's students. It's a cherimoya they
raised from seed. It makes the fourth Annonaceae in our collection
[two sugar apples and an atemoya]; the only other one I would like
to add is the native paw-paw, but doubt if we can give it the chill
hours it needs to be happy.
