Anyone buy this Raul?   If so and they're in the states I'd like to buy off some from them if possible,

I am familiar with Trabuco Canyon. I would never want to crap on someones vision but with the dryness and altitude (cold) it would be extremely difficult to grow- nevertheless fruit those trees in that location. Im a zone denier to an extent, but you will have to do so much to boost the temps in your yard that you may not fiscally (big $) be able to do so. I wish you good luck. Anything can be accomplished if you have a big heart and big pockets. Chris

Oh wow, that's about the size of my larger one.  Maybe I should put it in an optimal illumination spot and see if mine decides to flower too  ;)

Wow, seven months from flowering to ripe fruit!

Water the bejesus out of them for easier digging. Digging in dry soil with roots is no fun. Good luck and keep us posted. Chris

Didn't even think about that. Thanks for the reminder

I have a basically "bonsai" 3 gal tree thats been sitting on my back porch for the last few years. Its very healthy and maybe 18" tall by 3 ft. wide. The trunk base is about an inch...and it has flowered. Obviously no fruits yet...I was thinking about building an enclosed area so it remains "small". Not sure how big they have to be indoors but outdoors 1.5ftx3ft and you can have flowers! Nice flowers from what i remember? Chris

I havenít seen one locally by me but a rental company may have a spade. Here is an example.

Ah geez, and the problems begin to arise, beginning with the fact all of the trees are on a steep hillside, and that there is literally no access point for any kind of tractor or vehicle. Looks like i'll just man it out with some buddies and shovels and give them all some TLC. One I am most worried about is Suriname Cherry because it is very deeply rooted in the ground and I am afraid the Lychee will have a lot of shock, however the cherimoya's seem to be pretty transplant hardy so I am not too worried about that.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Will this cracked ppc ripe?

This season I have 7 fruits and so far i don't have any crack. I wrap ziplog bag around it with big holes on the sides. I don't know if that is the reason keep them not to crack.
Back to your cracked fruit, I guess you have to pick it to prevent further cracking. It is ripe If you see yellow line between the eyes, and singly green peel
