My inga edulis doesn't seem bothered by the humidity.

How long have you had it?

Planted seeds from Kona Fruit Farm TFF member on 9/2/16. It's now 5' tall and still
in a pot.

Hi Michael, was it from seed?? if so how long??

It was a 15" plant that I bought from Montoso Gardens in 2014. I also grafted one of Luc's
Mexican Garcinia scions on it in 2016 and it bloomed twice but no fruit from it yet.

(Sorry FLnative; didn't mean to hijack your post)    :)

I am growing one that produced it's first fruit this year. Surprisingly good.

Thanks,

I went down last week to get some plants and cuttings from Onur. He still
has some great ones left.

I am growing Black Madeira in St. Pete area and as you can see from the photo, it doesn't mind
the heat or humidity.

If you are buying on ebay, beware as there are many scammers as well as sellers who don't really know
what they're selling because they sell them before they fruit and can't verify it's the "real thing".

Your best bet is to join the Ourfigs.com forum. Great group of knowledgeable growers who can steer you
in the right direction.

How do you like your black Madeira? I would assume it has to taste better than black mission or turkey figs.

My BM had only one fig last year and I picked it a little too early. Even then, it was better than Brown Turkey and Celeste.
It had a major growth spurt this year and is holding about fifteen. I will be patient this time and hope that we don't get too much rain.

I wish you're closer.  I'll buy them.
good luck with sale and moving.

Thanks a lot Tony! It is always great to have some fruit trees in the back yard. Hope I can re-start someday in the future. Take care!

Or exotic birds  ;)

Still alive.

Hi Zoli. Do you give any guarantee for the delivery of live seeds? or the risk is only on the buyer's side? Regards

I think there are too many variables for a seller to guarantee live seeds (Customs, lost mail, etc.) I bought
some Pataxte seeds from seedpirates last year and half of them germinated.

Are they the same age?

Yes

I see, so this tree really likes that special pot with airholes....

It seems to; however I did cut the other one back as it had forked.

I am in AZ, but, I was wondering how long it takes them to produce their pods?  Mine  has to be at least 5 years old, gas grown like crazy, but never flowered.

Not sure. I read somewhere 5 - 6 years.

willing to pick up. They are 2 years old and stand approx. 54' high. PM me if interested.


I still have one plant to give away.

How does one know when it's ready to pick? This one
has a bit of give when I squeeze it.



See how the tips of the "scales" on the fruit are turning brown?  That's when I pick mine.  If you leave it too long, they can split open, which the ants and such really appreciate.

Good to know. Thanks!

Very tasty; a mixture of strawberry/grape.

I purchased some Physical Graffiti and Haley's Comet cuttings a few
years ago. Does the fruit look like either one of them?
