Opuntia?

Hmm.  You can eat them.  With jalapeno and tomatillo and pork (though maybe leave out the pork if you're a vegetarian?)

Kris!

Dude!

Yike!

Thanks for the tour!

I work for a law office that does a lot of business all over India (but I've never been there).

How about pictures of the public plantings, if any?

Hmm.  You are FAR south, in India.

Oh, please keep the pictures coming.  

LOVE the tree in the driveway.  It gets fruit, right?  Sapote?  Sweet . .. .

Namaste . . . .

Dear Friends Thank you thank you very much.  :)

Iam very glad you all loved it !

I should thank even my friend from whom i

borrowed the nikon camera,working in full

auto mode. and as for more new pictures

kindly give me time so as i could purchase

my own camera to shot the locations of your

interest.

Now to thanks giving to you guys_

Dear Dypsis Dean_Thank you very much.

Dear Amazon_here we have only 2 seasons

they are warn & hot only,with high humidity.

Dear Scott_Thanks Pal

Dear Bo Goran_Thank you,Iam glad you saw our

Pulmerias(not popular amoung locals here since the

french had planted these extensively in their church

grave yards !

Dear Wal_without your encouragenent i would have

been only a silent guest in this forum.so special thanks

for that !

Dear Ruskin(Bill)_Thanks.

Dear KamiPalms_thanks for the plant I.D

Dear Redant_Thanks.

Dear PalmZon_Thanks for the comments & i will look in

to it.Thats a Promise !

Dear BigFrond_thanks & at present i feel they will stay

in those cement pots.since the imported palms seeds from u.s

are gradually sprouting,i like those verities go to the

ground than local ones.

Dear Phonkelpa_Thanks

Dear Ray_thank you very much.

Dear Kim_thanks.

Dear El Hoogie_thanks for the I.D.

Dear Gileno Machado_thanks & no iam from S.India

and entire india calls neem trees & its products as

margo & margosa.the trimming of the local phoenix

palms are carried out by me.but if it grows beyond the

ladder limit i will be using paid workers who do palm

trimming & its cheap. My mother scoulds me when she

sees me on the ladder doing work of palm doctor.Since

iam a bachelor till now,she does not wants me hurt my

spinal cord due to neglience(Accident).

but i owe a lot to www.datepalm.com site since my

first encounter with palm trees trimming happened there.

i feel that weasterners teach all the tequnics they know_

unlike the local people here.

So i bow my head in pure respect to those worthy people.

Since iam communicating in the Net with you because of

the english knowledge(which is once again a gift of some

westerner to us.

Dear Bs Man_I am over joyed that you liked our house

Garden and the primary brain behind it is my Mom & not Me !

just few years back only i took over the interests from her.

I was initially called by my folks & friends as Angry Man,she

was the one who thought me that gardening can be relaxing

and even good for health.so lately my folks call me as Dear Kris.

Now to My dear friend Dave_thanks for the I.D. And yes iam a

vegeterian,since iam a brahamin by caste.As for the areca palms we did not have much choice then,but now my class-mates who are working in the U.S.are very insistant that

i bring some change in our gardening.So verities like Blue-hasper,washingtonia filifera,med fan palm,CIDP,Draconan Drago(dragon blood tree),Josheua tree,

Bismarkia Silver form,Lipstick palms,some cycas seeds are imported and some have even sprouted,but i do not know

wheather i will live long to see them grow into huge matured

trees ? since they are slow.

If at all i have missed any of my friends in the above presentation kindly excuse me.

Love,

Kris(India).

Kris, any jakfruit in your garden? (have heard some areas of India do not like the jakfruit, please take no offense if this fruit is held in low regard)

I would like a picture of a jakfruit tree if possible.  I will post a picture of mine if you would like.  It is pretty big for tampa but I am sure a midget compared to those in India.  

Is your sapote the big oval fuzzy one (mamey) with orange or pink or red flesh, or the small brown round one, chicle sapote, or sapodilla, or a different one.?  I would like very much to know.

Thank you much

Alan

Kris:

DON'T be silent!

We love you noisy!

And, you can grow A LOT more than the palms you listed.

I'll bet you can grow Sealing Wax and other tropical tropicals.

I've swooned all the way to Inja . . . . .

I'm surprised you have so many plants in pots with your climate being so warm, although obviously pots are needed for terraces and the like.

Are you planning introducing more species?  You can grow lots of palms that many of us just dream about, so it would be good to see how they do for you.

Lovely pictures, lovely house and garden.

Does the bottle palm in post #21 look like a hybrid cross to anyone else or is it just me?

Dear Alan  :)

Jack fruit in india is very very popular,but

irony this tree is considered very inauspicious

to be grown in home gardens.it is believed that

it brings bad omen  to its house owner_that was

the reason why my mom did not plant this lovely

tree ! and as for the pictures you have asked.i will

surely try to make it avaliable.but this tree does not

spread much but growns quite high & its fruit hanging

around 6 feet from the ground level.so fruit forms in

the tree trunk region itself.very beautiful seen to look.

and about the sapota_our is the small brown round type

but does grow in size if given fertilizer dosages,but even the

tree grows big in size creating obstruction to bulding structures

and driveway.

i will post the pictures when it fruits(that Season).

Dear Dave  :)

Thanks for the encouragement,yes i have not given up

on growing palms like lakka or lipstick palms.iam a bit

never say die type.and i believe that as long as their is

life there is hope !

Dear NeoFolis  :)

Thanks for that sweet comments.and i will keep trying

with new varities as long as possible...

Dear Buddy_PalmsGreat  :)

thanks for the comments & for remainding the pics of my

pets.i will soon up load those pics of Rocky,Pinky & their

daughter Sumo.they are american boxer bloodline.

Love,

Kris(to all my friends out there).

Kris,

You have a very nice collection of palms, cyads, and plants. I'm growing plumeria's here in Central Arizona and they do well also. I have a taller one standing about 5' that looks very similar to your red plumeria's.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Dear Randy  :)

Pulmerias flourish in any hot climatic zone,

but see to it that no other trees are placed

too close to it.if not during dry spell the stem

looses its moisture and it folds down,looking

very shaby.and 90 % of the time they grow

with those bent stems.

in hawaii there are lots of these varities with

very different colors.

and the hawaiin female dancers adore their neck

with these garlands and they even dance terrefic.

thanks for your comments.

Love,

Kris(India).
