here is the Che http://ediblelandscaping.com/buyPlants.php



Maybe someday we can all build a list of what plants we all have/want and get cutting from one another. This way one person doesn't buy 400 different fruit trees.

I plan to take mimosa and black locust cuttings in the spring and see if I can get a lot of them. They will be my mulchers/ n-fixers and mimosa will be a permanent tree for me.



We can...just have to be certain cultivars. A lot of the ones they sell at the big box stores don't work around here. Look for Opal, Wilma, Pryor, Poncho, Joey, or Fantastic. I'm sure there are others that work but these are the one's that I am planning on buying.

You should be able to find an acre for cheap compared to Boston pretty much anywhere in Texas. Just make sure to look into what kind of climate and landscape you are wanting. We have a bit of everything here depending on what part of the state you are in.

The satsuma and kumquats are the only cold hardy citrus that are edible uncooked as far as I know. The satsuma can stand down to 10 degrees. You might also try some heavy composting and mulching to keep some warmth around it. Good luck to you!

There are quite a few cultivars. I'm sure some get bigger than others. Most of the ones I've seen were between a tangerine and an orange. I had a couple grow on one of my trees this year that were the size of an orange.

Well when you decide to build, my offer still stands. You are only about an hour or so away from where I am now. If you find that you need some help or anything just let me know. If I am free I would be glad to help.

It was most likely a satsuma. I absolutely love them. It's my favorite citrus.

Grats! I absolutely love that area. I used to do some work around there. I always enjoy when my job sends me driving through East Texas. Such great scenery and so many wonderful small towns.

Wow. Lots of folks from LA. I was born in Lake Charles. All my family is in the Lake Charles/Moss Bluff area. I'm currently living near Houston but I bought 10 acres in Hemphill, Tx which is just this side of the border from Many, LA. Close enough right? I'm planning on starting my food forest this coming year.
