Tropical Fruit Discussion / Has anyone tried Cupui cacao?
« Last post by boopnloop on September 21, 2017, 11:13:46 PM »
I've actually never tasted any raw cacao seeds or pulp before. I've seen there are differences between varieties, so I'm curious. I have a plant, but I want to know everyone's experiences with the variety (Theobroma subincanum) .

Does it produce well? How is the growth? What does it taste like?

I bought the fruit trees listed from Ong Nursery in San Diego. I'm still a noob. The owner recommended the grow more bag 10-52-10 (blue crystals) mix with water.

I use about 1 teaspoon with a gallon of water twice a month.
I would think that you should either plant it out or transplant it to a bigger pot.

let it be is my vote.  you can try to cut the top part off first. then try it cut thru the base by cutting piece by piece from the side.

Here's a photo of 2 of my Black Star Surinam Cherries from this summer 2017.
This fruit is so under-rated.
Very juicy. Little pulp. Perfect blend of Sweet and Tart... like a blackberry or Dewberry.
Very little of the so-called aftertaste they seem to be famous for.

I think Mikey is waiting for growers in tropical areas to tell him what happens if there's no chill hours. Will it die or just not set fruit.

There are cherimoyas growing nicely in Singapore botanical gardens for decades. It is as tropical as it gets at sea level, 100 km from equator. But it does not mean anything because they never fruit.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Why sapodilla flowers can't set fruit? zone 9b (Bay Area)

I just want to add my experience regarding sapodilla as well.  I am in Southern California.  A few years ago, I had an Alano.  It was small and had tons of flowers every year but no fruit set ever.  About three years ago, I got a Makok.  It's a bout 3-4 feet tall and is currently in a pot in because I have not found a good spot for it.  I keep it in full sun exposure.  It has lots of flower set.  After two years, last year, it has one fruit currently about the size of an egg.  This year, I am more diligent with watering.  It now has 7-8 fruit buds.  I don't pollinate by hand.  I don't know why it behaves this way.  I just want to share my experience.
What kind of trees?
Thanks God!!!
Keep us updated and above all STAY SAFE!!!
