True

The last time I saw it was 1996 in FGC Ikot Ekpene

So it was a surprise to see it here in Port Harcourt

I wish all these old plants could be planted in cities

Those days people don't pay the exhorbitant amount we pay today for fruits

I bought 4 mangoes for N200 on Saturday

Something we used to pluck for free everywhere as kids

Hi there,

I wonder what city you are based in. I would like to get some of the Surinam Cherries that you referred to in your post last year. Are they still available?
