Hi all I'm really lucky, in my road we've got a few Spaghetti trees which were imported from southern Switzerland. The BBC came and made a film of it a few years ago. http://news.bbc.co.uk/olmedia/70000/video/_70980_aprilfool_vi.ram It certainly explains our penchant for pasta. Think I should have sent this message a few months back :D Norman -----Original Message----- From: thechat-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thechat-bounces at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Syed Zeeshan Haider Sent: 15 June 2003 17:42 To: Evolt TheChat Subject: [thechat] Mangoes Hello Everybody, I have a mango tree in my lawn. But it is not producing fruit. Its tiny flowers (which we call "boor" in our language) don't turn into mangoes and wither into black sponge like substance. I have consulted an expert of mango trees. He say that the plant needs some treatment. It will begin in August and continue till the next mango season. I think this treatment will succeed. I have heard that in North America (USA and Canada) mangoes are not as common as in Asia. Is it true? Do you enjoy the companionship of the trees of King of Fruits?
