Answer: 
As soon as harvested. Just wash as you would what you buy at a store. I've used it on bell peppers and tomatoes and they taste like the real thing! What you buy at grocery store has no flavor compared to home grown. No fish taste whatsoever!

Answer: 
This is basically processed fish. It likely contains everything in it so I wouldn't risk it if your son has allergies because it is extremely dense and strong. Consider buying a kelp fertilizer. It's organic with similar properties to help your plants grow better and stronger.

I cannot accurately answer that; however, if his allergy is severe I might avoid this product. It doesn't specify which fish, or shellfish it uses for its product. The smell of fish is VERY strong - so I don't think this is the one for you.

That's a good question. I've been around fish emulsion fertilizer for nearly 40 years and never heard of an allergic reaction to it. According to the information I've read from a manufacturer, the only thing in fish emulsion fertilizer is pulverized fish, water, and phosphoric acid (as a preservative). I would guess that any shellfish material in the fertilizer would be inadvertent, rare, and in very tiny amounts, but not impossible. I would advise if your son is going to be exposed to the fertilizer that you speak with your son's physician about a "test" to see if he is allergic, just in case he might have a bad reaction. Hope this helps. Read Less

Absolutely! If it Is natural, a part of nature, its organic. Just check the contents to ensure that it does not contain 'man made chemicals'. Most do not, especially this fertilizer.
I use it to make a compost tea. Compost that you make yourself, is the best as it comes from your surroundings and waste produce planted and discarded by you. Compost that can consist of grass clippings, leaves, kitchen produce waste, coffee grinds, egg shells, etc.
Place the compost in a cloth bag or small paint strainer into a 5 gal. bucket of water, had a 1/2 cup of fish fertilizer and 1/2 cup of molasses. Using an air stone attached to an air pump and let it bubble for 24 to 48 hours and you have Compost Tea. The Tea can be used to spray on your grass, plants or vegetables. Just make sure to water good within 24 hours to ensure that what the leaves do not take in it will end up in your soil to enrich it further. This process should be repeated at least once a month to get the best results. The only time I ever do it twice a month is in the beginning of Spring to give your garden and grass as quick start. Fish fertilizer is essential. Read Less

In extreme quantities it can make them sick to their stomachs, but in general its just fish parts and isn't toxic. My golden retriever got a hold of a bottle once and ate about half of the bottle. Her breath was disgusting for a few days and she was a little flatulent; but there were no other issues. I called the company when it first happened and they told me what I put in the begging of this.

Answer: 
Dogs (and cats) should not be permitted to ingest large quantities of the undiluted product. The product contains small amounts of acid, to prevent bacteria growth, and a small amount of wintergreen oil, to reduce odor. Wintergreen oil, when ingested by pets, can release an aspirin-like chemical which, in large amounts, can produce toxic effects.

Hello Ferzel,
Alaska 5-1-1 Fish Fertilizer isn't harmful to dogs as long as you follow the directions on the label. Any time you use a fertilizer you will want to keep your dog out of the application area until sprays have dried. This is the same for Alaska 5-1-1.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff IS the stuff I'd heard about fish emulsion before but I never thought it would perform as well as it has. My radishes are almost ready to pick and I planted them the 2nd week of April. I'd recommend this to anyone that wants to help their garden in a great way, and it's all natural. May 3, 2016

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Smells a Little.... Fishy? I'm not sure how this fits in to my organic gardening (I start my plants and fortify my soils with organic products, although I only do so because it seems to work best). However, having amply applied the fish fertilizer to my plants, I saw little difference, but smelled a huge fish. My garden smelled a lot like a day on the Chesapeake, or out by the ocean on the Eastern Shore. I gave up on this and went with the Miracle grow 4-pack bottles that you use with the sprayer. THAT had a noticeable effect on my plants. So, being an "organic gardener" of convenience, I found this inconvenient and went with a chemical product. September 1, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Impressed! I tried this product because a few popular YouTube gardeners recommended it highly. My plants started at about 8 inches tall after transplanting to the garden. I used this and Epsom salt on my tomatoes and peppers and the tomatoes have now grown to a height of over 2 feet just 3.5 weeks after first application! I'm impressed most because my plants take all season to get that tall usually and this time I'm well ahead of the hot Texas weather. Every plant has blooms and is already producing. I couldn't be more happy about this discovery:) April 26, 2016
