Hello ,
My names is Roberto, I am From Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

I am starting the cultivation of fruit trees in the interior of Minas Gerais, a friend told me the forum, he said that I could learn many things from people outside Brazil, from what I read so far, yes it really is true, many Important tips.

I hope to learn and talk to many people from this forum, maybe exchange some species of seed or similar.

Thank you

Roberto Oliveira

Hello, I'm Laura, currently living in Palm Bay Florida right along the Indian River - hence the 9b/10a designation since we are on the cusp and can grow some things they can't just a few miles inland. I'm originally from Connecticut and moved down to Miami about 20 years ago and since then have bounced around to a lot of places including southern Florida, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Asheville NC, Little Rock Arkansas and finally back to Florida to an area that feels so weird after living in sub-tropical Florida. This region I live in can be as dry as the south of France or as wet as South Florida and makes it really challenging.

We've got about 1/3 of an acre. When we moved here there was a Haden mango, Myer lemon, guava, some miscellanous bananas, loquat, sugar cane, papayas, and a Spondias purpurea - hog plum. Since then I've added an Everbearing mulberry, a mango that someone gave us and I have no clue what it is, elderberry, ice cream banana, dragon fruit, moringa, and a passion fruit plant that came from Brazil, and a kaffir / makrut lime. I've always loved plants but not been so interested in growing them, but that has recently changed so while I recognize a lot of tropical fruits and vegetables from around the world and even their plants, I'm not very knowledgeable about growing them and am eager to learn.

I've also got a great neighbor from Cambodia who has such a cool variety of fruit trees and vegetables, many unique to Asia, but he's not tech savvy so occasionally I will ask questions for him as well :).

Hello all, I am a mango tree grower and fruit lover. I love the mango fruit so much I even created a Facebook Page called Mango Tree Growers Of America with lots of information about mango tree growing and the members are very active posting photos and information. It was originally called Florida Mango Tree Growers Club, but do to popular demand the members expanded from Florida to USA statewide and now I am receiving messages that it should be renamed Mango Tree Growers of the World  ;D. I don't plan to expand it that much because mango trees were originally imported from other countries, so we are currently trying to help each other grow the perfect mango tree and fruit in all kinds of zones from Florida to California to Alaska :) . So that is a little bit about me and my goals are to expose all information regarding backyard mango trees and propigation, grafting, container growing, and fruit tasting.

My current list of trees are

1. Haden
2. Valencia Pride
3. Kathy (k-3)
4. Maha Chinuk (Maha Chanok)
5. Nam Doc Mai
6. Coconut Cream (Coconut Cream)
7 Piņa Colada
8. Orange Sherbet
9. Angie

Thank you all!

Here is the Facebook link... https://m.facebook.com/groups/656091337926681

Mango Tree Growers Of America, come help us grow the perfect mango tree!

Welcome to the forum. It is 100% not "chinuk". It is either Mahachanok or Maha Chanok.

I am Kevin, a Prof at Mae Fah Luang University in Chiang Rai, Thailand where I have lived for 10 years. I am a mycologist and a plant pathologist. Since I have a reasonably sized piece of land I thought I would cover it with a collection of tropical fruits trees for my children (not being so young). I am new to finding tropical fruit seeds and I am finding it quite difficult to find the unusual things as we of course have many of the normal fruit trees (Longan, mango, star fruit, star apple, etc) in Thailand but not many of the rare things. I am therefore looking for more unusual tree seeds with the hope that one day these will also become popular in Thailand. Any help or suggestions with getting unusual seeds of trees that produce delicious fruits would be welcome

This seems like a great place to seek out information for growing fruit trees.  Since this is my first post, I'll keep it short and just say hi!! :-*

Hello all,
This is the best forum on tropical fruits. I'm from Tampa, FL area so Tropical fruit trees are only options. On my small yard, I have several mango (LZ, MahaC) and few annonas (4 Atemoya, a sugar apple, a A. Reticulata), few citrus trees, lychee, sapodilla, guava, Acer. Cherry, Red Jabot., Jackfruit, loquat. That's about it.
Hoping to learn from all your experience on TF.

Cheers,
Joe

Hello out there in plant land.  I'm a 70 year old fa#t that just finished building a 20 by 68 foot greenhouse on our Southern Oregon property. Our plan is to grow dwarf avocado trees and oranges, tangerines and lemons. I hope to get lots of information here to make it successful  :)

I'm a hobbyist, wondering about growing fruit in Sarasota. I live on a standard lot, and I am looking for a non-deciduous fruit tree for my front yard.  Something I can keep at 15 ft or so, not something that wants to be 40 ft. tall.  Any suggestions of an easy fruit tree to try? 
Also, I have an Oro Negro avocado in a pot.  Any idea if it will grow well in Sarasota in the ground?

Hello everyone.  I just recently discovered tropical fruits.  I'm really interested in those in the Annona family.  I have several Annonas as well as starfruit, some eugenia species, and others as well.  I'm just looking for like minded folks as I don't have any gardening friends.

Prime Dinner checking in.

Recently I purchased my parents house.  They had grown lots of trees in the backyard and I would like to continue adding to the fruit collection.  I have potted some cherimoya seedlings this past weekend and am looking forward to reading more posts and looking at great pictures.

Dinner Out.

Hello all,

You can call me Albert. I live in Java Island, Indonesia where pretty much the fruits we're discussing here will thrive especially if they like full blown heat and humidity. For those in the middle which likes mild frost, I think not so much.

Currently interested in the Inga and Myrciaria or Plinia genus.

Albert

Hi, Im Brenden, 26 from Flint Michigan

Just an avid gardener, and curious to see what kind of fruit trees I can maintain indoors and hopefully bear fruit.
