In my experience if you soaked them in GA3 and they didnt come up in 3 weeks they
probably never will

likely that they have crossed with something else ?

The black pulisan seedlings are germinating in 2 different colours

Did you try that Annona paludosa fruit?  I grew one tree from seed.  It fruited & died back -- not sure if it is coming back or dead yet.  The fruit on mine seemed to be nearly all seeds with no noticeable pulp.  Other than the fact it was quite small & might be of value for a dwarfing rootstock, I saw no redeeming features to it -- unless it was some fluke fruiting & is normally of better quality.


Hi John despite the fact that our member Annonaceae really loves them they are not really a top quality fruit and are very seedy
however they would make an excellent rootstock due to the short growth habit

Which market a Mossman?  Flashbacks to my 2012 visit...

From the mossman markets in North Qld every Saturday morning

Very sweet tasting

They are guaranteed to grow from cuttings strait into the soil you dont have to
wait for roots

 Now renamed Plinia Salticola .An unfortunate name for a fruit tree but mine is
 finally starting to pick up the pace as far as growth is concerned

Not trying to hijack this thread but what should one do if you have this situation where a tree has established root in the ground through a small pot?
Cut out the pot and build a mound to match the height of the dirt in the pot
Leave it be
Make holes on the side of the pot to let roots out and mound dirt to cover the holes but leave rest of pot in place?

Just leave the pot attached and cover it with soil as is and the pot should eventually dissintegrate anyway .That will
cause the least amount of disturbance to the tree so it can continue to grow


Nearly 4 years old and 2 metres tall but growing well .No flowers yet

  I have a couple seedlings but they are very small and it will be years before they reach your trees size.    Good luck. Chris

Hey Chris mine is only 8 months old .They grow pretty fast  once you get them past the first few months

Hi all does anybody recognise this jaboticaba?.It has giant ribbed leaves and is only a
small seedling that was described as ESALQ when I received it but I know there are a
few with this name so looking to narrow it down thanks

A better than average  germination rate after soaking in GA3 solution .I'm finding that usually only a third of them
come up in the initial germination event

I've since found out that Arryan is a region in South America so no doubt it is
Plinia sp. Arryan .The guava is probably from the same region
