    Hey Pete, Do you know if there is anyone in Charlotte, NC area or southwestern NC/ Northwestern SC that you can direct me to their videos?

    You should cut off the sabha blossom to make the fruite mature and nice size,

    I used Potassium, Phosphorus and minor elements to my tropical fruit and it seemed to work.

    My Tropical Obsession posted on: southerspirit4life
    I think that’s you may be on to something. I researched it and found this information
    3.3. Potassium and Low-Temperature Stress

    Cold stress inhibits plant growth and development, which results in limited crop productivity. It affects plants by directly inhibiting metabolic reactions and indirectly influencing cold-induced osmotic, oxidative and other stresses. The effect of increasing K+ applications on yield and cold tolerance studied by Devi et al.[92] in Panax ginseng showed that a high K+ concentration activated the plant’s antioxidant system and increased levels of ginsenoside-related secondary metabolite transcripts, which are associated with cold tolerance. Cold stress may destroy photosynthetic processes and reduce the effectiveness of antioxidant enzymes, resulting in ROS accumulation [66,93,94]. K improved plant survival under cold stress by increasing antioxidant levels and reducing ROS production [7,92].

    Greater frost damage in K-deficient plants is related to water deficiency from the chilling-induced inhibition of water uptake and freezing-induced cellular dehydration [95]. A significant negative correlation was found between frost damage and leaf K concentration, and an adequate K supply can effectively increase frost resistance [6,8]. Bogdevitch [96] found that oats that were supplied with sufficient K could survive late frost without obvious damage, whereas much of the crop that was grown on K-deficient soil did not survive. This finding could be attributed to a regulation of osmotic and water potential and a reduction of electrolyte leakage caused by cold stress [8,97]. High concentrations of K+ protected against freezing by lowering the freezing point of the plant’s cell solution. Furthermore, an adapted cytosol K+concentration is also essential for enzyme activities that are involved in regulating frost resistance [8].

    I'm from Pensacola and would like to plant a SABA banana from Mr. Charles. I don't know his last name nor his home address.

    Thanks so much very nice vid. I am from Miami were bananas thrive and am looking foward to finding the types that can grow in Panama City. In regards to a very knowledgeable and large reservoir of variety of bananas in Homestead Fl. south of Miami just North of the Fl. keys is a nursery that specializes in bananas named "Going Banana" the have (back about 10 year ago) around 70 or 80 varieties of bananas. I have contacted them and they don't have the need, so they really don't know about too much as to which variety does well in NW florida. but they might be a resource in regards to getting bananas tress that are geneticaly speaking "such and such" variety.
    Good luch with that mango 🙂 your a better man than I in trying to grow it up this far north. but a mango rippend on the tree is insanely good.'
    there is a Miami Dade county park called "fruit and spice park" 60 or 80 acres which has a gift shop full of books I have gotten good info from both. Trying to learn about what grows in this area since hurican gave my 1 acre a buzz cut and have nice open lot for fruit trees…
    thanks again. Hector.
    P.S. Fairchild tropical Garden (south Miami fl.) large resource too. Mango festival in mid to late July!!!! Oh also Pine Island nursery in homestead fl.

    I have a fig tree that throws pups like crazy. And it produces the most figs for the longest time that I have seen. It has been a really easy rooster and I have given a lot of them away. If Mr Charles wants one I also live in 8b/9a in Silverhill Alabama. One tree has given me a gallon and a half everyother day for several months if you keep it picked off. It starts producing about the beginning of July till you get tired of picking it or it cools off. But I have picked it from June to Sept one year.

    You absolutely have to have a pomegranate in full sun. Any shading will make them not produce. And they require Sandy soil here. Well drained. They get rootrot easy. And will kill them.

    I so want to plant my food forrest. Slowly I've been sprouting all my trees and bushes. Hopefully soon I will have what I have planted. I live about 35 miles from Pensacola so wish me luck. I got my greenhouse put up in the fall. So now I'm planting. Some in my greenhouse some outside in my yard.

    This gentleman is a serious worth of knowledge.

    I live in Brazil and I'm starting my edible garden. I can only grow tropical and subtropical plants. In my city we never get temperatures under 10°C. In full Summer we can get to 42°C (hellish hot).

    This is the first of your videos that I've seen.  I live about 45 minutes west of Tallahassee.  I relish in the information provided here and would love to meet this guy and a few others you may have met in my area.  It would be awesome to get a list of the growers you know in my area (anywhere within 3 hours drive) that have similar climates and see what they have going so that I may learn more about the possibilities and gain potential ideas for my own food forest. .. again.  great video.. Subscribed.

    I'm glad that he is having success with bananas that far north. I just moved to Jacksonville from Palm Bay and I was worried that they wouldn't handle winter. Does anyone have any tips on frost covering bananas? I'm currently starting seeds of red bananas.

    Hi Charles!  Your property is a tropical paradise and I hope to be able to visit with y'all and see things in person.  That waterfall is beautiful.  Great video, Pete.  Thanks for bringing the gardens of a friend to our home.

    wow…great video again…I took 2 of my pomegranate varieties out this yr…they don't need many chill hrs at all..they are low chill…the culprit out west here can be the leaf footed bug…I didn't have that issue this yr, but they are only a marginal fruit for me in enjoyment and they were taking up too much space.
