My father was Morris Arkin. He developed the Arkin Carombola in our backyard in Coral Gables FL. He was originally was a stock broker for 30 years with no background in horticulture. He also developed a soft shell macadamia nut. Such wonderful memories! | Sunny Arkin Taylor - Houston, TX 29-May-2020
