I have a cosmic Charlie but it's only a cutting itself. I should move it into the hothouse to grow faster, I'll put your name on the first offshoot. I like to keep them pruned to a single stem to 5-6ft before I let them spread out.

Thanks John, appreciated.

I'm only planting out purple varieties now, would like some orange but they're impossible to get for the foreseeable future.

Starling they are around but very rare and 'going to the other side'probably won't be fruitful either.
Good that I have been given a new identity by the forum as Mike sounds a bit old hat.

haha--so you caught me out, huh? Can't blame a guy for trying.

Actually red fox is growing an orange right now that looks absolutely superb, but it won't be ready for a year or so--they are calling it Inca Gold. I've put in an order in advance :D

And yes--the shadow of the green curtain is long....

starling I am not discouraging you from that approach and no one else will see except one other maybe.I have access to a red flesh orange (yellow x red) and a few Californian purple fleshed types as well as a few other rare good ones. If I can secure a few I'll keep you in mind.
Didn't take long huh and you might need to practise being slippery hahaha

That would be great if you keep me in mind Mike, thanks.

Yep--that's me all over unfortunately, about as inconspicuous as liberace at a wharfie's picnic. I have a feeling a certain bureaucracy might try and light a fire under my arse any day now actually...

Won't happen starling, not in a million years. If the impossible happened you'd still be fine, even if your fishing trip hooked a few. That place is safe and fruitful.Your secret is safe with me.

Anthony,

any and all, so both I guess.Just trying to collect as many as I can....my little collection numbers 8 varieties, but most are reds. I'm trying to get more purples (I only have two) and I have no oranges at all.I have two yellows, one spiky, one not so spiky.

Hi Starling, I started collecting D/fruit about 5years ago and currently have many different types. At the moment I am talking to some people about getting the 2 orange varieties that I mentioned so I'll let you know how I get on.

wow--35?!I wouldn't have even thought that there would have been that many out there. Would be great if you could let me know how you get on with the oranges, thanks. If you ever want to make a little bit of coin to help with propagation supplies or whatnot, I'm willing to pay for cuttings, and postage.

Thanks again

Not a worry. Most of my new purple types are small at the moment, new cuttings that have just rooted but I will keep you in mind when they have grown big enough to take cuttings. As for the Orange types, I'll let you know how it goes. By email if you like.
