Oh my God Raul they look so YUMMY in these picture i'm drooling here   :P
By the way what of this "subvariety" is the one you send me seeds from? As I remember they were from a prolific  tree in your garden,,,,,



Hey Raul, is the flesh to seed ratio better with these Fuyu types. Are there more or larger seeds?

Simon
Hi Simon, flesh ratio is about the same, seeds have a different shape do,
The shape of fruit is amazing square, the skin is edible
regular, Fuyu, and Sharpie seeds

Yes I really do :-)
Anyway I've a couple of ponderosa lemon and they are doing surprisingly well here both in pot and in soil.
The advantage of the pot is that i can adjust their position to keep them in a partial shadow because the open sun here is really scorching

Steve your answer was really enlightening!
Everything is clear now tomorrow i'll proceed with re-potting in a slightly bigger pot.
THANKS!  :)

Citrus General Discussion / Lemon re-potting
« on: March 17, 2018, 06:36:15 AM »
I am willing to re-pot my feminello zagara bianca lemon and i've a question.
Since I am planning to keep it in a pot for life (not transferring it into the open soil) is it a good idea to drop it straight into its final destination (a 25 gallons pot) or better to gradually step-up with pot sizes until i will reach the final one?
If this is the case, what is the best  size increase every step? 
The current pot is  2 gallons sized

I agree.
I actually have  a soursop and a mulberry tree very nicely growing in the same situation

Grafted ones produce pretty quick. I've got them in one gallons with fruit.


I agree Mark , but my project for the last ...15 years ...was ( that's it ....no more...I am getting too old ) improving blacks and reds to end up with the best that come true from seed and zero astringency , I ended up with about 4 .

Luc you've selected a good black variety with low/zero astringency and comes trus from seed?
Have you got some of those golden seeds available??

Not at the moment Lori , due to my high elevation they take a little longer to fruit .

would be greatly appreciated if you could give me a message once the seeds will be available.
Thanks in advance Luc!

I've no idea but i wonder how can it grow in such a tiny container!

9
Do they look a strongly acidic soil? What is theis ideal pH range?
My little seedlings grow sooooo slowly and their youngest leaves look chlorotic quite decolored, whitish despite i treatet them with iron chelate

I advice you to check Carlos's website @
https://www.myavocadotrees.com/
 and his youtube channel at
https://www.youtube.com/user/GraftingAvocados/videos

You will find plenty of useful information about avocado grafting

I personally did the same

Air layering is fast and easy according to my experience. just take a branch of a pencil size and do it!

Scroll down the page and you'll find more info about gibberellic acid

Etoliation is just the excessive elongation of the stem that GA3 can cause especially in high concentrations. An extra tall and thin seedling say 15cm tall when it should be 5cm at that stage of development, can die off before it gets normal.

if writing berott you mean BIURET then your urea fertilizer  has approximately  0.36% of biuret

Yes true to seed and they bear fruits in just one year

They ARE etiolated.

This is the drawback of gibberellic acid, its difficult to find the right concentration to ensure a nice germination rate without damaging the future seedlings...

I've been told there is great Salak. My friend brought me some seeds and two made the journey. Most were taken from her. From what I can tell it is different than my three varieties.
Contrary to some reports indicating the abundance of salak in the Philippines, that fruit is nowhere to be found here. It's unheard of although rattan fruits which bear some resemblance to it is quite ubiquitous.

Ah! So JonM what fruit seeds would you suggest?
As Mugenia has said, many fruits found here are found in many parts of the world. Adding to the relatively common fruits previously mentioned that I recommend are jackfuits, chicos, marangs, mangosteen, star apple(currently in season), bignay, duhat or java plum, starfruit, kamias, tamarind, guava, and macopa or Java apple and its close relatives, pili nuts, and sugar apples. Avocados are common but it's a lottery when it comes to quality. Aratiles is so common it's left to birds.
Lesser known species of fruits that are often only well known in some localities are acerola, Rollinia, mabolo or velvet apple(Diospyros blancoi), lipote(Syzygium curranii), chempedak(only in Palawan), gumihan or pedelai(Bicol Region), hagis(Syzygium sp. - can't find species name), camachile (Pithecellobium dulce), cashew, berba(Lemon drop mangosteen), binucao (Garcinia binucao? - don't know if sp. name is valid), pahutan(Mangifera altissima, Luzon), huani(Mangifera odorata, Mindanao), galo(Anacolosa fructescens), tabu(Willughbeia elmeri? - not universally recognized sp. name, Palawan), palau saguit-saguit(Willughbeia sarawakensis, Palawan), and Paratungon(Salak relative but sour and used in wine-making instead. Palawan), and the gymnosperm "bago"(Gnetum gnemon). I forgot some species but most of them are even rarer.


Very good list !

You must be right Har.
I had some seeds planted in well watered and cared pots. They all got rotten.
Some seeds were in a "forgotten" pot without label left in the sun for several weeks.
Last week after a good rain they all sprouted, 3 out of 3.....amazing!

Very interesting!

Unfortunately this is happening to almost every fungus/bacteria/insect/mite/critter attacking our trees.
It seems the harsher are the chemical weapons we use against them, the  tougher their resistance....

When you get tired of a tree not flowering, the best thing to do is threaten it. Instant flowers! ;D

HOLY TRUTH  ;D
It happened to me several times, actually i "talk" to my trees not just to threaten them (don't tell my wife or she will have me admitted to the closest mental hospital )  ;)
