Tropical Fruit Discussion / Help identifying this seedling
« on: January 16, 2017, 11:38:23 AM »
I was clearing up some space for some new plants and found this guy in this growbag but could not remember what I planted.

I'm thinking it's a Pouteria of some sort (maybe P. multiflora).....

Looking forward to responses

Hey guys,

Would like to know if Pepino can thrive and fruit properly in a truly tropical environment?

Would it require shade, full sun - any experience with this?



Tropical Fruit Discussion / Need help to ID this fruit

Saw this tree with fruit and wanted some help to ID.


Curious as to whether mamey apple (Mammea americana) could be used as rootstock for Mangosteen as they are within the same family group (but probably different genus)?

To my Oz Forum members,

I'm visiting Australia (Brisbane and Cairns) in early May so I'm hoping that I can visit some of you guys and see the wondrous stuff you guys are doing!

Looking forward to a positive response.



Tropical Fruit Discussion / Macadamia Propagation
« on: April 29, 2015, 11:26:08 AM »
Can macadamias be propagated from cuttings? I am having difficulty in getting macadamia seeds (nuts) to germinate - any advice? What's the best way of propagation?


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is Abiu dioecious?
« on: August 25, 2014, 12:57:55 PM »
My Abiu tree flowered last year for the first time but I got no fruits. It is flowering again now and I am curious as to whether Abiu is dioecious, or, do I need another flowering tree nearby in order for fruit set?

I have small plants in Garcinia Acuminata and Garcinia Madruno and they are quite similar. In fact, if they weren't labelled, I would mistake them! Has this fruit simply been given both names over time?


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Abiu Fruiting Age?
« on: February 11, 2014, 11:50:38 AM »
I have a 5 yr old Abiu tree - this is the second year I have seen flowers but no fruit has set yet - what can I do to improve fruit set? Is there any way to hand-pollinate?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Will Cherimoya fruit in Tropics
« on: January 20, 2014, 11:28:12 AM »
Will Cherimoya fruit under tropical conditions? Are there any varieties that do better than others in the tropics?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Do mangosteen seeds develop new shoots?
« on: January 09, 2014, 12:24:34 PM »
I managed to germinate a mangosteen (G. Mangostana) seed and the shoot got to about 2 inches tall and then it died. The base of the shoot is still alive (or I assume so since it is still green) but it's been about 3 months now with no new shoots, nothing. Temperature and humidity are not a problem since this was done in the tropics.

Will any new shoots develop?
Can I do anything that could possibly cause growth to occur?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Propagating Macadamia by Seed
« on: January 06, 2014, 10:36:50 AM »
I have been trying to propagate macadamias by seed for some time now without success. Has anyone had any success doing so and method was employed?


Looking for seeds for some of the lesser known Annona family - Annona Diversifolia (Ilama), Annona Senegalensis (Wild Custard Apple) and Annona Scleroderma (Posh-te).
