Roy was able to connect with Avril, a fellow tropical fruit and plant enthusiast. She is the friend who donated the dragon fruit plants to the Back 2 Eden in exchange for fruit trees for her orchards, and now has given Roy a truckload of bromeliads,
which she raises and sells. Here are some samples of bromeliads which are flowering at the farm right now:
The dragon fruit at Back 2 Eden are growing so nicely up their poles that they now need a support secured at the top (tires are commonly used) so they can drop down and grow towards earth in order to fruit well. Roy found a source for old tires, for free, because they were so happy for him to haul them away from their chock-full storage area. Roy had to stop the guy from piling them too high!!
