If you don't use GA and they went dormant they should start to sprout around May, June that is what happens in the wild, so be patient..

btw Raul, where did you get this tree from originally?
From a friend in Bolivia, he said he visit Santa Cruz and tried different types so he sent over this type as he liked the best for size.

Oh my God Raul they look so YUMMY in these picture i'm drooling here   :P
By the way what of this "subvariety" is the one you send me seeds from? As I remember they were from a prolific  tree in your garden,,,,,



Hey Raul, is the flesh to seed ratio better with these Fuyu types. Are there more or larger seeds?

Simon
Hi Simon, flesh ratio is about the same, seeds have a different shape do,
The shape of fruit is amazing square, the skin is edible
regular, Fuyu, and Sharpie seeds
Hi my good friend Lory! If my memory is right I sent you seeds of Bacupari (Garcinia Brasiliensis) an almost ever bearing tree in my yard, same family but different fruits, I can send you some of this if you want them please let me know...

Thanks for the post Raul.  Interesting to see the different types.  Is the Fuyu prolific?
Hi yes it is, the problem is that is a straight up tree shaded by others so I need to wait for fruit to fall as is too tall

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pouteria Bullata
« on: April 15, 2018, 10:21:43 PM »
I received from Luc some seeds labeled as PA. Bullata over 10 years ago, the tree was planted on a slope in the hill, where I only water occasionally in dry season, it has grown fine and steady looks really happy, but never flowered, so the last two years I didn't water through the 6 months dry season and still push new growth, looks very confortable and is a large 14/17 feet high and very wide, taking space who could be use for a productive tree, I have been thinking about getting rid of it, maybe is from a cooler weather and lacks chilling hours, anyone growing or familiar with Pouteria Bullata? Leaves are similar to Abiu but much larger and wider...

Is the tree / fruit otherwise like a regular Luc's / Limoncillo, or are there other distinguishing properties?
As I previously mentioned same flavor as regular Luc Mexican Garcinia, so far the only ones with different taste are Sharpie and Sweetie.

I have found today a single tree that sets fruits of different shape, this one reminds alot the shape of Fuyu Persimmon however the size of this fruit is larger than regular Fuyu, flavor is nice like the regular type and Jumbo type, the leaves are also considerably wider than all the other types..
From left, three "Fuyu" Sharpie, Two Jumbo, regular

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Are these abiu flowers?
« on: March 18, 2018, 10:32:11 PM »
Yes they are, some just keep flowering and never fruit, I have one from Abiu I ate in Kona, is 15 Years old, 5 meters high has been flowering for over 10 years never set any fruit, is isolated, I plant another young tree over couple years ago 40 yards from the old one, the young at the second flowering and only over two meters high set two fruits, I thought this would help the older one with cross pollination but didn't happen, now the young is in full flower again, I also have small one year old, E4 seedlings flowering for first time at less than a meter high, from my unproductive old Abiu tree I never noticed those flowers really open up, always stayed close until they fall, not know if that is common...

« on: March 17, 2018, 06:12:50 PM »
I use to have a Kwai Muk, was the fastest Grower on my orchard, in only about 8 years had a nice spread canopy, started fruiting about 4/5 years the second year gave delicious golf balls size fruits, yellow skin and pink flesh with dehidrated apricot flavor, after that most of the time was flowering and setting fruits but somehow just right before the fruit ripen they fell down and didn't finish ripening after that, they did grow to full size but for some reason fell just before fully ripe, so after three years of same habits and tree growing fast and started to shadow a Mangosteen and competing with Marang neighbor for space I decided to Axe it, opening space for four Russell sweet Garcinia....

23
Those Pulasan looks good Mike, the Sibabat I received from you are growing very well, hopefully they fruit soon,

24
Im receiving scions of those varieties, here in Puerto Vallarta I don't get alot of chilling hours, most reviews I see online for this cultivars are from CA, so would like to know if anyone has any of them performing at least decent in a more warm location than California..

25
Hey Raul, Let me try this again. I'm new to this forum thing. My question is  if I pre order  2 jumbo seeds, would the shipping be 6.00 or 12.00?
