Purple-skinned? Mostly the 'purple' carrots are just the skin not the flesh. Whichever the colour, it looks like a cool little tree with loads of fruit for its size.
It's certainly a pretty thing isn't it. Loads of fruit for it's size.
Do they say what colour the flesh is? We might gain benefit from purple-skinned Carrots but none from purple Mango skin unless that's now edible.
While the skin of the fruit is pretty and decorative in the garden, I think it's the compact size and productiveness of this plant that is the main attraction.
It's possible even the fruit bats would leave this fruit alone as it's growing so low.
My purple carrots are very purple in the flesh. My main complaint is they also drip purple juice everywhere.
Ah! I've been looking for seed for the purple-right-through Carrots! What is the variety name and from where did you get the seed Andrew?
Rozie got them for me. I'll bring you some at Lissa's, if you like.
Good grief - is this my dream come true? A managable Mango??!!! Oh, someone tell me that it is true!!!
Just managed to get this Mango, we bought one for our son at Elimbah many years ago and his is quite productive and the fruit is a beautiful purple colour. It grows to about a person height and has a spread of about 2 metres.
So that makes 4 mainly dwarf or small size mango's that we have growing. Maybe we will get a feed of mango's in the next couple of years.
Is it dwarf because of the root stock its grafted on .
Yes Jeff, I do not know which root stock is used, but I can see a graft on it. The only problem with these grafted trees - is that you cannot expect exactly the same fruit if growing from it's seed.
The story of it's beginnings is just above in Valerie's reply.
