Tropical Fruit Discussion / Please, help me identify this mango
« on: September 13, 2017, 10:35:40 PM »
I just had this mango and it tasted really good. It tasted like Nam Doc Mai or Dumaguete mango from the Philippines not like the one we buy at Costco or the supermarket back home.

I am going to smuggle some seeds back. Thanks!

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Questions About The New Zealand Rose Apple
« on: September 13, 2017, 04:43:59 AM »
I am in Doha, Qatar, at the moment. Looks like the Arabs like the New Zealand Rose apple. I was skeptical at first, but this apple is good. Very crisp, juicy, and sweet. Much better than the American varieties. Is it possible to collect the seeds? Will it germinate? I am collecting a bunch of seeds here. My favorite desert fruit is the watermelon from the Arabian Peninsula. It's super juicy and sweet. The Arabs call it "hav-hav."

Folks,

Is Florida Hill Nursery legit? I am planning to buy some hua moa plantains and Muscadine grapes to plant at my dad's place. Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / My Tropical Fruit Tree Orchard
« on: August 17, 2017, 04:42:13 PM »
I just moved to Southern California. So I didn't have much time to plant anything due to my constant travel between here and Georgia. However, I did manage to plant some onions, malanga and taro, tomatoes, ginger, galangal, tumeric, and herbs of all kinds.

Then, there's my fruit tree orchard. So far, I have guava, apples, Korean pear, citrus of all kind, dragon fruit, longan, persimmon, jackfruit, atemoya, red custard apple, sapote, sapodilla, jambu apple, jaboticaba, banana, avocado, etc. I am not even done with my orchard. I still have a lot of land for sugarcane and banana grove and other tropical vegetables and fruits. I have 0.35 acre. If I need more land,  I can plant more on my folks' property.  They have about 3 acres.

Once I return from Qatar, I will continue to plant the rest of trees or land. Here's a picture of my lower 1/3 of my property. So far, I have two rows of tropical fruit trees on drip irrigation. Throwing some chickens and ducks in the back there, I will be self-sustaining.

Folks,

I am thinking to plant couple of Malay apple trees for shade and fruit in my back yard. I have a question. Can they survive the winter in the Riverside-Temecula area? My brother said I should be fine. He said he's not seen frost in years. Thanks!
