I'm soo happy! I just harvest my first finger lime fruit and i just love it! It's from faustrime variety. It's tart like lemon but not so much, it's like lemon with some herbs but no acid. And no seeds! I love to eat it straight like that!  :P

Luisport,

Of the varieties I grow and feel like I know well enough, Gwen and Pinkerton seem most precocious.

And I'm also thinking of the trees not being in especially great pollination conditions, like with many bees and near opposite-type varieties. (In those conditions, it's harder to say how precocious a variety is on its own.)
Thank you very much!  ;)

Happy Easter everyone!  ;D

Do you think it would fruit in the tropics? one person from Costa Rica is interested on it...
I think so, why not? It worth a try...  ;)

9
this is becoming one of my favourites fruits: it has personality and the pulp is firmer than the other arazás
Yes, they are really really good! And this trees give a lot of fruit! :P

Big jujube of Thai origin. Fruit is 4-6 cm. Very fast growth. Not sure how hardy it is.
Hi! And it's self fertile? Thank's!

11
Any one knows if thai jujube (ziziphus mauritanea) is self fertile too? Thank's!

12
And i forgot it's very hardy. My tree resisted totally to my worst winter temp of -6.5C!

great, so we can confirm it will survive to -7º C or -8º C, dont you think?

no sign of damage?
Yes for shure! It's hardy like feijoa. On maximum it will loose the leaves but they will grow fast on spring and give a lot of fruits.

Good to know it Luis! yes, I did it the same

Do u feel that critrusy taste too?
Hi! Yes it's lemony taste but not acidic... very good. Good fruit to sell because it's big, good looking and resist well. I's my prefered araçá! All of them are diferent.

15
Also called Weikwa tangelolo. Its Grapefruit X ( Grapefruit - Tangelo).
Thank's!  ;D

The fruit doesnt gives to the touch and I think it is ripe, so it really seems harder than the strawberry guava and maybe less perisheable.

Better photos from today:




Hello my friend. Yes, this one is much less perisheable. And the flavour is very good. I like to eat them when they fall from the tree or they fall on my hand when they are very red.

I have 6 seeds available . These are not true to type. It's such a unique variety I thought someone might be interested. These are not sour fruits and have a quite pleasant unique flavor. I'd like to trade for
seeds/ seedlings other than citrus . Send PM.





What is this? A lemon variety?

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Re: Dekopon seeds

Yes Dekopon is true from seed.


You have to choose the nucellar seedlings. Otherwise you can end like this. :

Hello my friend! I just hope some nursery start to sell dekopon trees soon!  ;D



Buy online from www.harriscitrus.com. Dekopon is also known as Shiraniu in Florida.
  Is this the correct tree?

Is there an easy way to identify a nucellar seedling?
I'm in Europe, not in US. Do you know any nursery that sells trees to Europe?

If you guys from California ... why don't you just order budwoods from ccpp then graft on a rootstocks that you can get from homedepot or lowest. I did t-bud grafted on c35 rootstocks last yr end of march. With less than a year look like a normal citrus tree and starting flowers few days ago




If you guys want to plant from seed then good luck for the next 5-7 yrs and might not come true from seed
Here in Europe we don't have dekopon or valentive pomelo trees for sale. The only way is to get from seeds...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Mexicola avocados for sale
« on: February 11, 2018, 03:48:39 PM »
Hi everyone.
As usual, in this time of the year i look for the new planting for my garden. Avocado is my objective now.
As much i have been searching in Europe, i haven't been able to find a genuine Mexicola avocado. Part of the problem is that for some mistake, in Europe "Mexicola" is used as the generic name of mexican race avocado, so I get several nurseries that sell mexicola avocados but often they reveals themselves to be just seed grown mexican race avocados. But i want a true, grafted, mexicola avocado.
So, it there anyone here knowing about a nursery selling the true grafted Mexicola avocado, and willing to ship oversea with the necessary documentation?
It's a long shot, i know, but for real, i have been searching for that plant for the last 6-8 years.
Thank you.


Pancrazio did you check Viveros Blanco in Spain?

José i think they don't sell just few trees, just large quantities...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Bignay: flowering and fruiting
« on: February 09, 2018, 04:42:14 AM »
I know of a few trees of this species, and all of them are isolated, and fruit very well on their own, so I don't think they need more than one to fruit!
About how long the flowering last, I'm not sure, but I now that both flowering and fruiting are not uniform, and you can have sometimes flowers, small fruits, and almost ripe fruits at the same time, wich means you can never harvest all the fruit at once, sometimes even in the same raceme.
About shelf life I have no idea as I always eat them directly from the tree, and never tried to save some to see how long do they last.
Hello my friend! Did you eat any fruit yet? They are etable?  ::)

Yes, they are eatable, but not the best fruit I ever eat in my life! If properly ripe, they are a bit sweet, lightly crisp, and a bit adstringent.

About the flower smell, I've never notice a bad smell coming from it, but I also never put my nose close to it.
Regarding the bignay it is rewarded by the nutrition beneficts. Here we say: quem se cura não se regala!  ;D

Looks purdy  :)

I can vouch for life on an island with a couple hundred thousand people  ;)  I mean, it can be a hindrance sometimes being cut off (things take longer to arrive, goods sometimes become unavailable or are just in general unavailable, etc).  Example: for some reason about a month ago pecans disappeared without warning from the grocery store I usually shop at.  No problem, right - I'll just shop somewhere else.  Bónus?  No pecans.  Hagkaup?  No pecans.  Everyone simultaneously ran out of pecans; I guess there was only one supplier  ;)  And they're still not back in stores.

But on the other hand, being insulated from the rest of the world is rather comforting.  The atmosphere is more laid back.  Global geopolitics becomes more of a spectator sport.  Contrarily, you feel you have more influence on things when the population is low and isolated because it's easier to get to know other people - politicians, business leaders, artists, whoever. If you find life too stressful in Denmark, "remote island life" might be more your thing.  :)
No problems in Madeira Island. That's where i like to live if i could choose... at least no cold there... it's the pearl of Atlantic Ocean!  ;D
