–Plant is very prolific, this plant has 7 large fruit and many small ones so far. 這品種生很多,光這株有7個較大的果,還有許多小的.

Annual fruit. Easy to grow. Best in full sun location. Small yellow flowers blooming in summer to fall. Prolific. Small fuzzy green fruit mature to yellow hand sized melon with rough webbing pattern, inner orange flesh is sweet and juicy. Mature days 60-100days. I like this variety is small enough and faster to mature due to the wild animals disturbance.

Mature size:1.5′-2′(H)X 4′-6′(W). Open pollinated. Propagate by seeds.

一年生的水果. 容易栽種. 最好栽種在全日照處. 夏到秋黃色小花開不停. 多花多果. 從剛開始授粉成功結的綠色毛茸茸的小小瓜到成熟時的黃色網紋瓜,香甜的瓜肉為橘色. 種子種到結瓜為2-3個多月. 我喜歡這個品種是因為成熟期短,瓜夠小,否則野生動物的破壞搗亂會沒有成果可以吃.

成熟株高1.5-2呎,寬幅/藤長4-6呎. 可以自株受粉結果. 繁殖以種子的方式來進行.

White Mulberry (Morus alba) ripe fruit is creamy white and very sweet! 大果桑成熟的果實為米白色,很甜!

Large deciduous hardy fruit tree for its highly producted long fruit.   Easy to grow. Best growing in full sun location.  USDA Zones:4-10.   Although some said it is cold hardy to zone 6.   Mature size:20′-40′(H)/(W).  Propagate by cuttings or layering/air-layering.  Medicinal. Myself prefer white mulberry than red mulberry because tree is shorter and ripe fruit is not staining your teeth!

大型落葉強健的果樹,通常以生產可食用較大顆果實的桑果目的為主來栽種. 容易栽種. 最好栽種在全日照處.  耐寒也耐熱.  成熟株高20呎到40呎,寬幅亦同.  繁殖以扦插或壓條/高壓方式來進行. 有藥用價值. 我個人較喜愛白桑,因為成熟樹高較矮,且白色的果實在享用時不會將口腔染色.

One of my favorite sweet and fragrant melons!  Delicious!  This annual sweet melon  is handful size with pale green thin peel, the look is like a petit honeydew melon!   This heirloom melon is very easy to grow.   Best growing in full sun location in rich soil.   Open pollinate.  Small yellow flowers in summer.  It can be grown as a trailing vine or climbing vine.  Fast mature, about 50+ days.

我很喜愛的瓜類之一,它的瓜肉很是香甜好吃!  它是一年生的甜瓜,熟果通常是可以單手抓住不會掉的大小,瓜皮薄呈淺綠色,有點像是很小號的蜜世界(白蘭瓜),不過比較香!  這瓜很容易栽種,也很容易結果.  最好栽種在全日照處的肥沃土壤.  花朵容易經昆蟲幫忙授粉而結果. 夏開黃色小花.  由於它喜熱,通常夏天長速很快.  它能在地上爬或架高攀爬.   由種子到瓜熟生長快速.約50天左右.

Soursop (Annona muricata) seeds germinate in about 2-3 months. 林琴果/刺果番荔枝種子約2-3個月發芽.

Tropical fruit.  This fruit has bump surface.  Its inner structure/flesh looks like same genus fruit.   The taste is not that sweet, more on the acidic side although very flavorful.  The after taste in the mouth is very fragrant and flavorful, making me want to savor the after taste longer.   So I realize it will be great to use the edible flesh (after removing peel and seeds) and make juice/smoothie with other sweeter fruit.  That will make the perfect combination!  🙂

熱帶水果.  這種水果果皮有短的軟刺/凸起.  切開後的果肉/構造很同屬的水果很雷同.  果肉白,味偏酸但有多層次感的風味.  食後的口感果香味較濃郁,水果的風味也經久不散,除了果味稍為偏酸不偏甜外,其水果風味及口感倒是蠻不錯的.  若一般喜歡偏甜水果的人可以將可食的果肉(去掉不可食的果皮及種子後) 與偏甜的水果一起打成果汁或奶昔飲用可以將甜味酸味中和.

Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location to partial shade location.  Tolerant poor soil.  Creaming white flowers in late spring to early summer.  seeds are toxic if ingested.  Propagate by seeds, cuttings or grafting.  Medicinal.

容易栽種.  最好栽種於全日照到半日照處.  植株耐貧瘠土壤.  淡黃接近白色的花於春末夏初盛開.  種子有毒勿食.  繁殖以種子或扦插高壓/嫁接方式來進行.  有藥用價值.

Mature size: 20′-30′(H) X 15′-20′(W).  USDA Zones:10-11.  Plants are evergreen in warm climate.

成熟株高20-30呎,寬幅15-20呎.  喜熱不耐寒.  在熱帶環境為常綠.
