Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Should I train my cambuca?
« Last post by 00christian00 on Today at 01:58:55 AM »
When I don't want to cut I always train the branches with wires to open/close the canopy an guide a branch in a specific direction.
I see no reason to let it grow freely if you got the time do do it

Doubt it's an issue. If you dumped some gasoline on them, then I'd be worried.
cheapest tree is 50 and above I believe. they are seedlings too
Hey everyone.
I am looking to experiment with some plants and am looking to get some seeds or cuttings of many varieties.
I am looking for :
-Mango seeds. I have manilla and tommy (I believe) germinating now.
-Miracle fruit
-Barbados Cherry
-Honey berry
Any recommendations on small fruits that do well in pots?

Please let me know if you have any of these and are willing to share. Thanks!

Kensington Pride is a vigorous polyembrionic variety that could be tried, is has a very nice distinctive flavor, it does have a small amount of fiber. This variety is used a lot in breeding here in Australia to incorporate some of its flavor to the progeny as it is so familiar to the locals. R2E2 is a very popular variety which is a cross of KP and Kent for memory, it is a very large fruit with little fiber. Being a cross of a monoembrionic and a polyembrionic parent about half of the fruit contain a polyembionic seed, so these seed, can also be tried. Banana-1 is another Australian polyembionic selection that could be tried as well as one called Strawberry, I am happy send seed of all these if required as long as you arrange your own import permits. There are two more polyembrionic varieties that could be tried that are available in the US, one is Nam Doc Mai and the other is Early Gold, this last one is said to have moderate/high anthracnose tolerance.

Yeah, I can see how a tripod ladder might be problematic on sand, now that you mention it. That is something I’ve never had to deal with.
Hello, i watered my plants the other day with a tiny bit of grease on my hands after washing off most of the grease until there were washed out parts that stuck to my hands. Would that tiny bit of grease come off, go into the water, and harm the plants? How long does it take for petroleum damage to show up on plants? Thanks, Matt
