[nafex] what new for the spring?

    Depending on where you are, Prinsepia is susceptible to Pseudomonas and
brown rot and the fruits, while tasting of cherry, have about 1/8 inch of
flesh (in the good ones) over a large, rough pit.  Very sparse bearing in
many places.
    Yellowhorn tastes like a raw potato, IF you live long enough to see it
in bearing.
    Fruit of Magnolia vine (Schizandra) is known as Chinese Five Flavor
fruit.  Interesting, but very acid.  Young vine is very attractive to slugs
and requires shade - burns off in full sun.
    Currants and gooseberries - look up Hartmann's Plant Co. in Michigan -
they have a much better selection.
    Also, transplanting of pawpaws is HARD.  Better to start your own
seedlings and graft them.
