Very interesting, Luis! So cool to see her so excited about pawpaws. Based on her other videos, she’s quite into growing exotics!
One of her most recent videos shows her trees looking gorgeous- I hope I can match that someday.
Also interesting that she apparently successfully transplanted from the wild. Though I believe other forum members have reported success with this.
I’ve been to pawpaw orchards but her trees look so big that It almost makes me concerned about my planned spacing of 6 feet

But man, pawpaws are just gorgeous trees!
Hi! Yes they looking great! Pawpaws are so beautifull... and have delicious fruits is just amazing!  ;D

Luisport, I'm not sure about the blooming period in your area, However, in the future make your low biuret foliar spray about 1 to 2 months prior to the expected bloom date.
Well the weather is changing here. Now we have the first rains in November with warm temperatures. This makes all citrus to puch flower buds, but we didn't got so much freeze temp so they didn't got killed. Now the flower buds are one or two weeks to bloom. It will be a great citrus production this year.

Good luck with them. A good loquat in its point of ripeness for me is one of the best fruits. I found more info about Peluches, is an average variety regarding flavor. If you find Rolhao II let me know!
Ok i will tell you!  ;D

Hello my friend, do you know any Spanish nursery that sells them? Thank's!


Si, eu comprei o meu Tanaka aqui: http://tienda.agrologica.es/comprar-planta-vivero-frutales/496-nispero-tanaka.html Boa planta e bom preço.

Anyway I'll prune mine several times this year (it's still in formation) so if anybody needs scions I should have by the end of this spring.

Golden Nugget is considered a middle quality variety here. Big Jim dind't appear at this side of the ocean as far as I know.
Thank you very much my friend! Do you think that Tanaka variety is best than Peluche? Thank's!

Peluches is a good one, but I think not as good as Tanaka, it's closer to Argelino. All of them ripen in different weeks, so it's interesting to have that in mind. Better than Argelino and Peluches is your Portuguese variety Rolhao II, that ripens about the same time than the former. According to this pdf, it's excellent: http://www.publicacionescajamar.es/pdf/series-tematicas/centros-experimentales-las-palmerillas/innovacion-en-el-cultivo-del-nispero.pdf I'd like to find it to make the season longer with top tier varieties.
Thank you very much my friend, i have to big loquaq trees but they are a bit acid. My wife don't like them and deman me to take them down!  ;D
So i will get two top variety trees...

In Spain the best variety is Tanaka, big fruits, delicious. It produces around 15 days later than most of cv. I don't know if you have this one in USA though.

Loisport, i do not know the answer to your questions.  If Oscar is selling it, it must be a good variety.   You can contact Tintorri and as them for information.
Ok my friend thank you very much for your answer. My question was to help me to choose some pomelo varieties.  ;)

They harvest them way early and let them sit there and lose moisture until they're spongy.

I have only had jujube from international markets, and they've been pretty awful, like you describe above.

So, as much as possible in words, can someone describe what a fresh/good jujube tastes and feels like?
I have one Li and one Lang tree planted less than a year, so no fruits yet. I will tell you latter this year.  ;D

I 'll have some trees for sale in some weeks of Aigina variety, but only greek ones, grafted on selected variety high dried conditions resistant . Pistachio grafting success is very low (45-60%)..

Hello,

It mainly depends of your location and what you are looking for.

Usually american varieties are more productive and shell is also more open. But taste is really poor. Iranian and greek varieties are well adapted to dry area, they do not need much water and are the most tasty. I grow Aigina variety the greek AOP and have planted in another area more wet Peter and Kerman plants I got from Italy, less tasty in my opinion.
Do you know any suplier for two feminin trees of good Greek or Iranian variety? Thank's!

Hi,

I have 150 trees and produce in Greece pistachios. Grafting helps to give you fruits sooner and open shells. For pistachios it is very important to graft and also to have more female than male as the ratio is 1 male for 30 female...
Hello my friend. Thank you for your reply. I want to hask wich varieties are best for pistachio production. I already have 1 male and 1 female of De Bronte variety, but i want two more trees... Thank's!
