I would recommend Tommy Atkins based on taste alone.  Just kidding dude, please don't call me stupid.

Hi All,

Short story is I'm looking for a CDD Blanc plant and have many fruit tree scions for exchange.

The long story is I got a CDD Gris three years ago and now know that it's not a good choice for Phoenix AZ due to the eye being open. I did my research before and read somewhere that CDD Gris has a closed eye so I went with the Gris. Wrong, it has an open eye here in Phoenix that allows the sour fruit beetle in. These pests don't spare any figs

I should have figured this out a year ago had I not planted the CDD Gris near a large eucalyptus tree. Well I found out figs can't tolerate eucalyptus like the white mulberry can and had to replant it elsewhere. I figured fig and mulberry are related and both have aggressive root systems, so why not. The CDD Gris and a Janice Seedless were totally stunted next to the eucalyptus tree, but grew well after moving them away.

Yes it is marula.  My seedlings last year looked the same.
If my seedlings survive my 9a/9b zone cold and phoenix heat down the road we can exchange scions.
Judging by how long it took you to get a reply, marula seedlings are probably not that desirable.  Too bad choice cultivars are not available here.

I hope someone has some info on Ambrosia mango eventually in this topic.

 I only found ataulfo and champagne fruit in stores.  Trade or buy is ok.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Peluche loquat
« on: February 12, 2016, 01:00:30 PM »
How does the Peluche compare in taste, growth and fruit set compared to Avri?

8
Mark, I can send you plenty of kari, fwang tung and sri kembegang scions for Avri and Peluche scions.  The only thing is I have to graft the loquats now because it's super hot and dry here in Phoenix.  Adam sent me some Avri scions last April and all the grafts took, but died in July from the heat even though they were in full shade.  The Tanakas I grafted in earlier in February survived the heat.

Please let me know if you're ok with that.

How does the Peluche compare in taste, growth and fruit set compared to Avri?

Thanks,
Steve

9
Thanks, I should have search the forum after google found nothing.

10
I can't find any info on Peluche loquat.  How does it compare to Avri and other top tier loquats?

11
I got marula seeds from Isreal and South Africa two weeks ago.  They're both already germinating, wow!  Here are the steps I took:

1.  Sanded the seed eyes down with 60 grit sandpaper, but stop before you hit the white nut.  I find it very hard and unsafe to try to pry out the eye caps with a knife.

2.  I soaked the seeds in bottled water(no chlorine) for 2 days in a ziplock bag with the seeds only half submerged in water. 

3.  Planted in seedling soil mix half inch deep in large cell seedling tray and then watered thoroughly.

4.  Placed tray on heat mat inside clear plastic container with lid loosely on.

5.  Placed container in shady location and the seeds started germinating in about a week.

Good luck!

Anyway, Adam is sending me some Avri scions. 
He didn't have Tori, Novak, Aiden and the other available.  I hope Avri is the best one.

I wonder why no one has Mcbeth loquat in this forum. 
Some guys in the San Francisco area say MacBeth is better than Big Jim and most other California varieties.

15
Yes there's some conflicting info online, probably from mistaken identity of some varieties by these researchers. 
The same paper you have showing the Avri loquat list the Tanaka correctly as a very big fruited loquat and it lists incorrectly the Champagne as a yellow-red fleshed loquat.

Here's the link: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CCcQFjAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hort.purdue.edu%2Fnewcrop%2Fppt%2Floquat-cultivars.pptx&ei=HYBKVYqEGYjooATIk4CADw&usg=AFQjCNG040743ct9nu1q6y1jrcCxT-8PsA&bvm=bv.92291466,d.cGU&cad=rja

The Tanaka I have has big and consistent fruit production that is very sweet and has long shelf life.
The Champagne I have has sweet white flesh.
Just like in the CFRG publication: http://www.crfg.org/pubs/ff/loquat.html

16
Do Avri, Argelino, Pupello and Novak do well in Texas or elsewhere also?

17
Ok, then which loquats do you like best?

18
If you want Tanaka, Champagne or Bradenton Loquat scion wood please message me. 
Many people think Tanaka is the best loquat in Hawaii, Bradenton is the best loquat in Florida and Champagne is one of the best loquats anywhere.

I just want a grafted McBeth loquat scion wood in exchange.
I also have a grafted Tanaka and a grafted Champagne trees in exchange for a grafted MacBeth tree.

Thanks

Thank you Millet for the info on Trifoliate orange.  I'm not considering grafting wampee on any citrus because sources on the web say they're not very compatible.  I will try to graft wampee on Glycosmis pentaphilla (Orangeberry).

20
Here is a discussion I had with someone who is knowledgeable about citrus and citrus relatives.

It started with matievski stating that Glycosmis pentaphilla (aka Orangeberry, Rum Berry, ginberry, G.citrifolia, G.trifoliata) being an excellent rootstock for all citrus plants if you have soils with PH 8 and higher. Tolerates salinity of the soils.

The first message is at the bottom and the last message is at the top.


Dear matievski,

It looks like wampee and orangeberry are in the clauseneae tribe.  Where cirtus and Severinia are in the citreae tribe.  So wampee should be more graft compatible with orangeberry than the others.  I can send you a wampee scion if my grafting succeeds.

Thanks,

Dear snowjunky99,

Wampee is an interesting citrus family plant. Let me know if you have one for sale or for exchange, I would love to have one.
I do have Severinia boxifolia if you want to give it a try as a rootstock for Wampee.
Have you tried trifoliate orange?

Dear matievski,

We have high soil ph here in Phoenix too, but the citrus grow well on sour orange rootstock. Wampee (clausena lansium) on the other hand doesn't grow well here and doesn't graft well on citrus, so I will try to graft wampee on it. I think clausena and glycosmis are closer relatives than they are to citrus. Please let me know if you have a bigger one for grafting. Thanks.

Dear snowjunky99,

It is known fact that it is resistant rootstock for citruses. In south hemisphere it is most used rootstock due to tolerance of the soils with PH > 8.
they go vice-verse, I have mine grafted on lemon Myer for 3 years now. Fruiting constantly.

Dear matievski,

Thanks for the first one arriving in good shape. How do you know citrus will graft onto these? Did you read it somewhere or tried it yourself? Please point me to that information. Thanks. I'm not buying these for grafting, but will try it if true.

All four seedlings are in 6 inch pots, but the soil might be too heavy or wet.  I will repot. Thanks.

It's too much work to grow Myrciaria/Plinia in our salty alkaline soil here in Phoenix.

Thanks Ricardo. 
I'm hoping someone has extra plants they can sell. 
I would like to try these two in Phoenix Arizona and share my experience here.
Getting plants instead of seeds would be a bonus.
I have about 70 subtropical and temperate fruit trees varieties growing in my yard.

Steve
