waxberries!

waxberries are my favorite fruit! they taste like no other fruit. my cousin owns hundreds of waxberry trees on a waxberry hill in Ningbo, and two weeks ago i plucked thousands of them. i put some in white wine to preserve them and i'm bringing them to Los Angeles and San Diego today fresh from Ningbo! I have seeds of two kinds of waxberries, the small kind (same size as lycee) and the big kind that grows as big as oranges! i will try to grow them in san diego and see what happens, but i heard that some trees are over 500 years old so i wonder how long i would have to wait.

see you guys, i got a plane to catch right now.

Cotdt may have trouble getting thru customs. Always have to think of that.... even have to smuggle in the seeds. With the present searches that will not be easy. Fresh fruit in wine will be a problem too. I am anxious for an update!

I am glad to say the waxberry seeds and fresh waxberries in wine passed customs just fine. I am now putting the seeds in moist soil in San Diego, and hopefully a plant will come out of it in a few months. I hope this works!

Yeah no more waxberries in Ningbo for now, but maybe there is a way to grow year-round waxberries? I don't know.
