Hi,
Do you have Pouteria torta gallifructa and Pouteria Viridis:

I had something labeled "tree ripened" Kents from Mexico at a super market up here.  They were about to go bad. But what was still good was superb at least by my California Mango standards.

I think Vietnamese is Na Dai aka the chewy one in California at least.  Vietnamese Cherimoya is just a tree that was growing in California and as far as I can tell has nothing to do with Vietnam.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Grow light and scions grafting?

I havent done it but can't see why it wouldnt work.  The nice thing about grow lamps and growing things indoors is you can control temperatures and light intensity.  Should work out better than hot august sun IMO.
Yep, anything better than outside >90 degree. I have 0% success (out of 4 grafts, scion/branch-green/green) so far in August.

Thanks to all for their help. I guess I will be conservative and just mostly leave the tree alone for now.  Just need one more question clarified. When tip pruning sapodillas on hardened older branches, is it just the tiny growing tip, or the whole terminal leaf cluster that gets pruned?
 This is one of those Fruitscapes trees....  They did have one older Sapodilla tree that got broken off at about 4 feet and had put out nice growth near the broken top afterwards, but it was not a Tikal.
That was the tree that gave me the drastic amputation idea, it looks like it will be a really nice tree in a few years.  I guess managing my Tikal tree like that can still be a plan B if we get hit by a really bad storm that even staking won't protect.....

In CA we have Navel. We buy Texan when we want sweet ones. They have seeds.
I don't think the sweet orange (I mentioned) was Texan because of it has much more juice. Texas orange as I remember is very dry. Certainly it's not navel (no "navel" on the bottom), probably a sweet variety of Valencia. Very sweet even the skin has some green color.

Awesome. Hopefully I can get there to visit one day. Costa Rica is on my bucket list for a few reasons.
