Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Are these abiu flowers?
« Last post by Raulglezruiz on March 18, 2018, 10:32:11 PM »
Yes they are, some just keep flowering and never fruit, I have one from Abiu I ate in Kona, is 15 Years old, 5 meters high has been flowering for over 10 years never set any fruit, is isolated, I plant another young tree over couple years ago 40 yards from the old one, the young at the second flowering and only over two meters high set two fruits, I thought this would help the older one with cross pollination but didn't happen, now the young is in full flower again, I also have small one year old, E4 seedlings flowering for first time at less than a meter high, from my unproductive old Abiu tree I never noticed those flowers really open up, always stayed close until they fall, not know if that is common...

Spring time/Mamey apple time here, having fun tasting many different ones but this particular variety has been my favourite for decades. Some pics of the fruit peeled and cut up. The seeds come out of this one with our any hassle. All around goodness

my first year also. I had the same observation, I was thinking they were going to drop off.
Go with maypan coconut your in a traditional [Lehigh Acres] cold corridor that goes all the way to Golden gate. fiji is a delicate lily when it gets cold, but mayapan coconut one tough hombre.
I looked it up and it looks like the maypans get pretty tall still. Iím wanting something that stays pretty small. Iím a short gal and Iím not so great with heights lol. Plus I have a tendency to be drawn to more rare things. I may have met my match trying to find this tree though! I guess I will know after next week if I should abandon my search and just be happy with my Malayan gold.
So as not to detract from this thread anymore, I went ahead and started a new one  :)
