Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Star Apple seeds not germinating

This is a hard species to sprout as the seeds have to be super fresh. I've only had success once and that was seeds from Oscar. The same species I waited an extra day or two after arriving, and no sprouts, so you need to plant immediately. The seeds that did only took about a week or two. It sounds like your seeds are not viable anymore.

Yeah the scions are very durable. Raul did a good job. I don't know of anyone else selling the scions so we are all very lucky to have this resource.

Still, I'm wondering when to remove the tape? It's essentially buddy tape. I'm just worried that the scion will rot underneath if it's turning black but the top is still green. Anyone have advice on this?

Those look good but too expensive.  Any citrus/avocado/fruit/nut tree food will work in place of the first one.  Try a 20lb bag of gro power avo/citrus from walter andersons in san diego.  You will be getting 10X more plant food for less than 2X the cost.

 The nutricote is good but unless you are buying a 50lb bag you are paying too much for it. Get an 8lb bag of osmocote plus on amazon or walmart for 15-20$ instead of 2lb of nutricote for the same price.

Also you dont really need to fertilize when its cold and the plants are slowed down or dormant.  I wont be fertilizing again until trees start flushing in spring. Maybe some osmocote for my potted plants but in ground trees dont need anything for a while it will just get washed out and wasted over the wet cold season.

Are your trees in the ground or in pots?

If planting paw paw, remember they don't like trauma to roots when planting. I'd leave rootball intact as much as possible. Usually not planting a huge tree anyway. Paw paw likes water so wouldn't worry about planting hole turning into too much of a sink if planting in well drained soil versus thick clay. Most trees we buy from nurseries are in a bark mixture potting soil, we plant tree in ground, and it grows. If all soil falls off roots, we stick them roots in hole and fill it in with dirt/soil, and plant usually does just fine. No worries, man!

Mike at TreesNMore has abiu trees. He might have rolliinia too. Worth the drive. You could check PIN as well, as they are closer.
