Julie - Photo by Ian Maguire

Julie, on a scale of one to ten, Jamaicans would rate a solid twelve. In Florida it is sought after for its dwarf growing habit. Florida’s humidity makes this tree a challenge to grow however. Fungus problems which lead to stem die back are common, making fungicide applications necessary for success. Like the Ice Cream variety they thrive in more arid climates. The fruit itself is sweet and tangy having somewhat of a pineapple flavor. We no longer grow this variety due to it's difficult nature, but it will remain on the site to contrast varieties that do thrive in Florida. The fruit ripens late June to July.
