It seems the lesson we are learning here is that the "exotic" from around the world do not always produce well here. We had a lot of donated seeds from other countries last year that we had limited success from most. Many grew but did not provide fruit. We started the following seed this week in a effort to determine whether they will germinate: tomato, Tomato discovery, Smooth Green Okra, Basil, Eggplant, capsicum pepper, Pavito, Sweet Corn, Watermellon Sweet F1, Watermelon Sugar Baby, and Zucchini Felix F1/ Last year's results: The Watermelon grew and produce sub-soccer ball size melon but it was difficult to keep the bugs off of them.Tomatos grew but had very limited fruit. Zucchini did well, and was one of the few plants that had some economic success against the prices at Robinsons Market but seed are expensive. . Okra did well, Basil plants grew but had about 6 month life. Pavito are too cheap in the market to grow unless you want to control you own produce. We did not try corn last year. I will be focusing on locally supplied seed, or seed harvested from fruits and vegetable we purchase at the market this year.. I will have some potted seedling available this years, and encourage other to bring the same. With proper communication here on the Forum we should be able to provide the correct seeds and seedling everyone wants. Let's keep posting on our efforts with seedlings and finding seed so the exchange is a bigger success this year with minimum duplication of efforts.
