Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rooting purple mombin cuttings question
« on: February 17, 2018, 11:47:36 AM »
I am trying to root cuttings and currently there is growth that appears to be flower buds.

The question is are those flower buds or leaf buds? If they are flower buds should I remove them?

They have been in the rooting medium about 5 weeks.

Thanks!

I am growing one in a container from seeds I got from Adam.

I have several questions on them.

1. Does anyone else grow these in a container and able to fruit?

2. How long before it fruits?

3. Are there cultivars or selected trees that have superior tasting fruit or large fruit etc?

I kept 3 plants and was able to easily graft branches from each other.

Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Garage ripened container Gefner
« on: December 19, 2015, 07:42:44 PM »
My container Gefner survived the winter of 2014/15 in the garage. In early June I pollinated several flowers which resulted in one fruit.





The average first freeze date in my area is around Nov 15 so I moved the Gefner into the unheated garage with the unripe fruit around Nov 10. I provided some light for  a couple of weeks and then discontinued it.

Well yesterday, after being in the garage for well over a month,  I noticed the fruit had fallen. Today I cut it open and ate it and to my surprise it was sweet and delicious! (while not a fair comparison it was much better than a $10 Cherimoya I bought at the store.)

I had thought of getting rid of it as it is very vigorous and wanting to grow large but now I think I will keep it.

Do you have any tips on keeping it small in a container and getting a few fruit every year? I pruned it last year and know how to do that.
What I am interested in is does the location of the flower affect chances of ripening early?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is Cherimoya a good heat tolerant rootstock?
« on: August 23, 2015, 07:43:33 AM »
I am growing some Cherimoya seedlings from a California grown fruit.

I plan to graft Sugar apple and Atemoya on to some of these.

I am growing these seedlings under a fig tree now as they tended to burn in full sun once the heat kicked in.

My Gefner Atemoya and Sugar apple seem to handle the heat fine. The Gefner better than the Sugar apple.

The question is would these seedlings do ok as a rootstock as far as heat tolerance?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is this container Sugar Apple ripening?
« on: August 15, 2015, 10:13:49 AM »
This second year Sugar Apple is growing in a 3 gallon or so container.

I see small cracks forming between the sections. Is this an indication that it is ripening? (or something else. Its been hot here - around 100F for the last 2 weeks)
The fruit is a little larger than a golf ball and feels fairly firm. I pollinated this one in May.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pruning Guava Tree
« on: April 29, 2015, 10:45:08 PM »
I have a white Thai/Vietnamese type guava growing in a 15 inch container.  I over winter this tree in the garage.
In March a pruned some branches to keep it from getting too tall. Now each of those pruned branches are sending out multiple shoots.
Should I trim these to a maximum of say 3 shoots per branch? Otherwise the tree would get crowded with multiple branches.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is this pest on my Guava trees?
« on: April 19, 2015, 01:39:21 PM »
I grow tropical Guava in containers.



I have had this pest on them for a while. They are soft and can be rubbed off easily. What is this pest?




I also use the following which sprays a fine jet of water to dislodge them.



Thanks in advance.
