Wonderful plant - I can wait for it to fruit!

The plant was a good size and well packaged - it arrived in excellent condition. I've purchased a lot of tropical fruit plants during the last two months - I wish I'd ordered all of them from Elarish Tropical Exotics ~ they obviously have very high standards!
