I think i see yuzu from japan, is this all grow in australia?

And i could send seeds from a bigger fruit, we have grafted tree's with bigger fruit now.

But they are not nice so i won't send to anybody...i don't know if small one is nice, never ate it.

We eat them white inside, taste sweet crispy...we don't eat ripe.

I grow them from Ajesh who is selling now. They grow very well but he has the real big type fruit...real inga edulis as he claims.

Not all of them are as nice, so make sure you get a nice one and best buy them now in your summer.

good luck with one tree.

Applying Potassium Sulfate will help to keep fresh new growth healthy;  it will not fix the leaves that are already damaged--- dead tissue cannot be resurrected.

Yes sometimes new leaves all look good, but weeks later they get brown at edges...should i give potassium all the time?

Yohann my rambutan in Thailand look the same, always leaves like that and extra potassium does not help for me. Do you give much potassium? I use potassiumsulfate but not to much.

Can red longan also have small seed?

I really like it. It is similar to Julie, but in my opinion slightly better tasting. The flesh can be soft; some people may not like that. Definitely worth trying. I just grafted over 1/2 of one of my mallikas to it. One of the most endearing characteristics of the tree is that it will literally bear fruit a year after being grafted (and every single year after that). The most precocious mango I've experienced. Growth rate is ridiculously slow.

Your angie must be receiving nitrogen.

In the video Har commented about the bitterness of Maha skin.  My Angie is much larger than my Pickering.  I have to top it every year.  With Pickering I only cut the lowest branches because I don't want the fruit to touch the ground.
Yeah I guess I should stop the nitrogen.  But Pickering's been getting nitrogen, too.  How do you rate the flavor of Dwarf Hawaiian, Jeff?

I had grafted mahachanok but it did not fruit for 4 years so i cut the whole tree and grow other mango now.

Cempedak, is another great alternative to Durian but certainty not as great as top quality Durian, in my opinion. Also, I believe no one managed to fruit Cempedak in Florida so your only option is to get a jackfruitxCempedak hybrid if you want something that is very close to durian.

Just keep in mind it won't be as good as a durian.

Chempedak is not close to durian...nobody likes it in Thailand, durian is much better.

Alright! This discussion is getting interesting, so there are more durian trees around South Florida than expected. I think the next thing we need to find out are how old the existing trees are (i.e Durio trees got to 20-30' in Fairchild, but are they 5 years, 8 years, grafted, start from seeds etc.)  Durian typically start fruit around 15 years, but grafted could only take 8 years (again, from my brief research and read from internet).

I see Durian really have a lot of commercial potential selling at $9.99/lb so I expect more commercial growers would try really hard to make it work.

No, a commercial grower in Florida would not waste their time and loss of money to get it to work.  Too many negative variables and the income loss is not a smart economic/business decision.  They would make their decisions in crops that the net gains are the highest.

There is a reason the price per pound is so high...

Rob is absolutely right.  No commercial grower in their right mind is going to take on a financial risk like durian when there are so many other viable options:  Tomatoes, peppers, blueberries, strawberries, etc.  At best, durian is going to be grown in the back yard by durian enthusiasts.  And I look forward to the day when we can enjoy home-grown durian from our own trees :-)  Now the problem is finding that elusive plant that will survive Florida conditions.....

You can try durian lablae from the mountain in north thailand. It is colder there. Also  is a very good durian with small seed.

Jared from Weird Explorer (YouTuber) gave this fruit number 7 in his top 10 fruits of 2017.

It is a hidden gem  8)

And pitangatuba is one of his favorit, you should grow it!

Aussies- canít even get their drains to spin the right way. Whattaya expect?

Nuff said! Why don't they correct that!  Do these jamokes even have a soccer team? I  never saw any mentions during World Cup mania

I saw only South america in Russia, where was team USA ?? ::)

My friend has a very very big papaya tree, i posted pic's here before.

He say the tree was another variety papaya before he topped it..after topping the papaya's are much better.

This tree is very big again, too high to pick the fruit.
