- Although Paul and Luisa Zmoda grow true olives at Flatwoods Farm in Florida, they have found Ceylon olive, which isn’t a true olive, to be a bit less demanding.
- Manipulating the Flowering of Lychee and Mango
- Occasionally discouragement and idle time bring inspiration. This is what Don Batten described one day in a presentation to the Sub-Tropical Fruit Club of Queensland, Australia. Sheryl Backhouse was there, and it occurred to her that Fruit Gardener readers might be interested in the details. So here they are.
