Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Successful Graft Soursop onto Cherimoya
« on: October 27, 2018, 07:51:22 AM »
  There was a individual who lives in Garden Grove who just harvested a large soursop fruit from his tree about a month ago. He's a member of the Facebook group Vietnamese exotic fruit growers. I know of a couple more members in that group who have fruit set on younger trees but haven't harvested them yet so it can be done .

Frank thatís a amazing looking tree you have there, Iím sure it will hold fruit before long as the tree ages .

 Hi Behl

I know of a couple examples of soursop fruiting in So Cal . Both examples are of members of the FB group Vietnamese exotic fruit growers . One tree belongs to a member who lives in Garden Grove and the other member is listed as Los Angeles. I havenít seen the trees in person myself, but know many members of the group who have and have seen pictures of the large fruit hanging in the tree.

 I picked up a chocolate  persimmon a couple of years ago. Like Brad stated it is a Dave Wilson tree and is doing well . If you go to dave wilson website they list nurseries that carry their products.

Yes the last time I saw him was around two to three years ago at the California cherimoya association annual meeting in carpinteria at the home of Jonathan Brown.  He came up with one of his sons who if I remember correctly had a place in Escondido. Anyway we talked plants in general for quite awhile before the meeting started. It was a really day .

  You might try getting ahold of Norman Beard in Goleta. He used to sell trees .

    Hi Frank

 Itís good to hear from you. I was wishing that there was a ď like button ď to press in agreement with your comments. I for one count it a privilege to have had the opportunity to know these persons and call them my friends. But what really surprised me was that they called me friend back when I had so little to offer to the friendship . I learned a lot from each of them and was always ready to learn more as they offered up their knowledge . Thereís not too many of them left. How is Rudy doing ? Do you see him much ?

    Jim will truly be missed in the rare fruit grower family. I had the pleasure of knowing this man for around 20 years and I considered him a great friend.  Even though I knew that he was Iíll for some time it still comes as a shock when you hear the news. Iíve had the pleasure over the years to get to know Jim , Paul Thomson,Bill Whitman, George Emerich, Eunice Messner, and these are people who you donít forget. I used to enjoy talking plants with these people for hours. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

 Is there any sign of gophers in the area ? They do love fig roots.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this fruit. Iíve always been curious about this fruit . Tried to grow it a couple of times but the seed that I received did not sprout.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Cherry of rio grande
« on: April 26, 2018, 01:27:37 PM »
I have a tree planted in the ground back in Ď07 . It took about 4-5 years before it flowered. Each year after its first flowering the amount of flowers increased. Fruit size seems to go hand in hand with how much water they receive. They are thirsty trees. Mine is flowering now. I usually get a second bloom towards the end of summer and a lighter crop. The sweetness increases if you leave the fruit on the tree until it changes from a shiny appearance to a very dark dull color about to fall off the tree. Birds do love to peck on the cherries too which can be a problem.

You got the approval from "the boss" already, what are you waiting for?  ;D Since Ethan hasn't been that active, we in the middle of CA need another local source to buy tropical plants.

William,

Time to start your own nursery, Mimosa Visalia!!

 Trung ,

 Funny that you should mention this because my wife was just saying the other day that she thinks that I should start a small backyard nursery. I would probably offer mail order.

 Based on the prices posted for the black sapote , I have around $1000.00 .  But based on the overall prices of what you showed, My plant collection is a real GOLD MINE !

 Alex Silber has a good instructional video showing how to prune cherimoya on YouTube. He states on the video that heavy pruning stimulates 3 times as many flowers. I have a 15 year old fino de jete that I need to cut way back this spring.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / " White Sugar " variety of sugar apple
« on: February 27, 2018, 08:19:16 AM »
    Good morning group

 I was looking over the plant list for papaya tree nursery and Alex has a sugar apple variety called " White Sugar " listed. I did a forum search but it turned up nothing. Does anyone in the group have any experience growing this tree ? I'm curious and considering buying one but would like to know more about it first.
