Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What are these and how do I control them
« Last post by sidney on Today at 04:20:37 PM »
Sri lanka beetle, feed at night.
Priestly, White and Licia continue to show progress on the pond apple.

White has very tiny leaves but they seem to be doing well other than the size

Priestly has been almost reluctant to grow but still has not dies and has sprouted a few leaves.

Licia seems most at home and is throwing out leaves like it belongs.  See pictures below.

White with several small leaves

Priestly almost reluctant

Licia, waxing strong.

For first phase of this experiment, it looks like I have my interstock.
I have put several other Licia scions on a few branches and I am watching them all.
Come next spring, I should have some sites for new atemoya budwood from JF.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / What are these and how do I control them
« Last post by Orkine on Today at 03:38:35 PM »
I have some pest identification and pest control questions.

There are what I assume to be 3 different things.

First:  Some bug is eating notches in my lychee.  I assumed it is a weevil of some sort but have never spotted it.
See images below

Next on lychee and longan, there is this ?I don't know what it is?  that is on the underside of a number of leaves.  It does not appear to be moving and may be the case of a bud long gone or some stage in the life cycle where it is not active.  Can you id this and how do I treat control this?

Lastly, there are these neat rows of what I assume are scales along the ribs of several leafs, see images below.  Other than scraping them off, is there anything I should be doing?

I eventually plan on adding this into my drip irrigation as well.
Let us know how it does. And how long does the liquid fertilizer last on the lowest setting.
To be honest the fee is pretty minimal.  It's a few percent and then you can print shipping labels at a discount when doing regular "goods and services" transactions.  Seems like not a big problem.  PayPal provides a good service.

I recently viewed a video where Dr. Richard Campbell and he stated there were several varieties of orange sherbert, anyone growing it?

It sounds vert interesting hopefully it has the bright red color of tarocco orange and the woderful taste of clementino :-)

No flowers on my plants now, so I am looking forward for the crop from summer flowering.
Description says, that taste resembles mix of tarocco and clementine.
