As the last night of colder weather sets in, we are preparing for warmer weather in the next few days to bring in the New Year. Our new setup handled 17-degree lows with multi days below freezing just fine. We hope all of our customers faired these conditions ok as most of the nation was affected.
If you had an outstanding order it will ship tomorrow. Replacements damaged in shipping will also ship tomorrow if not already credited.
Lastly, Check out what's new. If you missed it, 5 new varieties have been added to our online store with several more in the upcoming days.
Due to the recent cold weather changes across most of the country, Spicy Exotics was forced to protect our Dragon babies sooner than we planned. We want to send a special thanks to Donovan Vasta for lending a helping hand during the busy weekend. We are almost completed with our nursery expansion that started back in March 2022, but we are ready for the cold weather.
This setback has delayed our inventory update on our online store a few more days. Our update will include over 40 varieties of Dragon Fruit, including our newest release, Selenicereus macdonaldiae. You can learn more about this species at https://spicyexotics.com/product/selenicereus-macdonaldiae
Busy weekend with Dragon Fruit, nursery tours, and fruit tasteing. Thanks to a our customers visiting us the weekend and a special thanks R2 Positive Culture / @r2positiveculture for making it to our nursery. Can't wait to try some of that Dragon Fruit Probiotic Soda.
Our weekend trip to Central Florida took Spicy Exotics to The Reid Farm / @thereidfarm1 where we met with the owner Mr. Lonny Reid. Before we knew it, we were there for 4 hours. Mr. Reid is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to food forests, and his nursery shows it. We highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area or check them out on the web at https://thereidfarm.com .
Our collections from this visit put Spicy Exotics over 100 edible plants in our food forest. We look forward to the results of these plants and sharing them with our visitors in the future.
Our plants are moved to their home for the winter. Our construction is not completed, but the end is almost near. A big scare with last week's lows at 32 degrees over two mornings with no damage. We had some crazy weather in 2022, but no hurricanes and we are grateful for that.
For customers wanting plants, we will have a selection the second week of November. Some old, some new, some never seen before.
If your seeking fruit to take home or taste testing while visiting, our fall crop is ready. Over 50 varieties to choose from. Schedule your visit under our contact menu or message Kallie or I if your interested.
