Gardeners' Notes:

Positive tmccullo On Jan 1, 2007, tmccullo from Houston, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

A striking plant which bears medium bunches of delicious fruit with orange flesh. A rare form of the Iholena Family. The plant is very stout and vigorous in appearance with an unusual ivory hue to the trunk and petioles. A dwarf form of White lholena, very stout, with fruit similar to the others. Average hardiness. Fruit turns yellow long before ripe. Tends to fall over with fruit on it, so definitely needs bracing. This is a dwarf stout plant with a yellow skin and orange flesh. Striking plant producing medium bunches of delicious fruit.

We just purchased ours from Aloha Tropicals and within a day of transplanting the plant it is already growing a new leaf. It should do well here in the Houston climate.
