NEW FRUIT-PLANT COLLECTIONS

Last Sunday we visited my Father's house in my home town.
And I had more time, so I visited traditional market just for window shopping.
I bought some traditional snacks for my children, yes... special snacks.
I was so lucky, I met a nursery man that almost everyday sold so various plants on this morning market.
I took a look some interesting plants to add my collection.


Then I took home several little trees to be grown as potted plants.
There were mini guava, variegated mini guava, calamondine and kefir lime, and also I got a bonus a rose plant.


This is my mini guava (Psidium guajava).
Look... there are some flower buds among the leaves.


And this one is variegated mini guava...


I also bought calamondine or acid orange (Citrofortunella sp) to substitute my old collection that have died caused by downy mildew.
All plants have planted on the pots yesterday, and I hope they will grow so well in my garden.

    1. Thank you Kak Mala. Long time ago I grew mini guava on my front yard, but when we had house reconstruction, that plant was moved to back yard, but the extreme weather made the plant got suffer and then died.
