Re: waiting for Ernesto.....Barbados Cherry

LOL, Jim.   So you really think they are tasty???  Perhaps  since you eat so 
many on a regular basis, it is an aquired taste????    My mom eats (or tries) 
just about anything....and usually likes  everything....but even she didn't 
like the fruit.   I usually let the  birds have mine.
They seem to enjoy it quite a bit.
No fruit again on the Feijoa (Pineapple guava) although it bloomed for the  
longest time this year.  I thought I read  that it didn't need a  second tree.  
No shortage of pollinators either.
Any thoughts??
Speaking of Bamboo palm......I can't get mine to thicken out.  I've  had it 
for years, and it still only has a few stems.  Several others have  it, and it 
is a thick nice clump.  What am I doing wrong??  I even  moved it thinking it 
would like it better in an area not so crowded with more  sun.   
Cold front blew into Texas.....gave Pam some much needed rain, but  disipated 
before it made it here.  Did drop the night time temps to the low  70's so 
should jump start the bloom season again.

The  Barbados cherry [aka acerola] continues to bloom and produce. In 
fact, it  now has more blossoms than at any time earlier this year. And 
that is  good. I try to eat five or six cherries a day; they have 30+ 
times as much  vitamin C ounce for ounce as oranges, and they're tasty 
besides. If I eat  10 or more, I begin to have delusions about being
