Temperate Fruit Discussion / Shanxi Li vs Li jujube
« on: January 07, 2018, 10:09:25 PM »
I wonder if they are different variety or just simply Li? I have Sherwood and sugar cane and think about to add a few more into my collection? I like sweet taste . Is  Shanxi Li. sweeter than Li? Do you know what variety is usually sold in the super market? I don't like those since they are spongy and tasteless.
What about GA 866? Does it produce A lot of fruits and taste sweet?

I believed I bought an airlayer Malaysian apple tree. It is a huge , healthy tree now like 8-9 ft in 30 gallons pot but shows no flowers. Can I graft it on the rose appple or wax jambu in the ground ? Please advise me what type of scion I should use if there is a possibility . Thanks

Today I saw My sugarcane jujube suddenly sent out new leaves . I wonder if this is normal or it is a result of giving it compost tea from  SD Hydroponics store? I watered the tea last Sunday and go to the store to get free compost tea to water again this afternoon.
Has anyone used this kind of tea before ? How often should I use it? 

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What cause longan fruits 'skin crack
« on: November 08, 2017, 04:53:39 PM »
Does anyone know what cause longan fruit split open ? Too cold, too much water or lack of water? I am sad beacause I will not have the chance to taste mature , ripped longan fruits first time this year.


If you are going to prune the tree and consider throwing away, please let me know. I am willing to pay for the shipping fee/cost of the cutting or pick up locally.


Is it safe to cut the branch down or should I redo the airlayering process. Please advice. Thanks

I have an Apple tree on the ground for 3 years, but never produce decent crop for me. What can I graft on it? Can I graft jujube , Indian jujube, nectarines, loquat on the rootstock? Please advice.
