Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Dwarf mulchi production
« on: July 31, 2017, 11:09:02 AM »
Finca La Isla,
thank you for the report...congrats
i have a small favor to ask,
i seem to have got my Plinias from Jim West confused,
i have the giant and dwarf, but not sure which is which,
i believe the dwarf is much harder to grow, and has a less glabrous, more pubscent,
and more membranous leaf, than the giant form.

can you post pics of the foliage of your dwarf?  maybe old growth and fresh growth if possible?

! No longer available

Do you have any in focus closeups? To my eye it looks to have a single alternate pattern with large buds, where the jaboticaba I am aware of tend to be opposing/small bud.

trust your instincts...

Sabara roots are thread like...

believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

"Aluminium is an important factor in cerrado soils and frequently occurs at levels toxic to cultivated plants."

could adding aluminum sulfate to your soil help break the cerrado curse?

tasted this for the first time today, remind me of strawberry, lychee, with guava paste texture...very good fruit, could be made into raisins I bet, they would taste amazing dried, but are excellent fresh out of hand...very pretty fruit, the plant is a liana, with once i get it rooted, I'm going to plant them underneath the south side of a large non-fruiting tree, on the border of my property, where i can avoid it's thorns....cold is not an issue for this species...but according to my friend, it took many years to fruit from seed...maybe because his plant is in so much shade?  any how....this is a good fruit worth adding to the collection if you have  space.

Back logged with emails to answer!! I'm going to get caught up as best I can this weekend! Thanks for all the inquiries, and your patience.

Wayne didn't take out a patent on "Dream Cherimoya," did he?  What about the Indians who developed Arka Sahan?  Is it patented?  Like someone said, the only way to know for sure if they are one and the same is to do genetic testing.  Otherwise, just enjoy the fruit.  I like Dom's idea of grafting both on the same tree.
I wonder why people don't just take Wayne's word for it, that he planted a seedling, and the seedling grew poorly on it's own roots, so he grafted onto pond apple and cherimoya, at which point the scions from his seedling were able to grow vigorously.  He never took scions back with him, it was just seeds....he's not a liar, or crazy, or a drunkard, or a druggie...

take his word for it, he planted the seed himself.

I bought the perforated "budded" tape from A.M. Leonard. It looks just like buddy tape, maybe it's sold to them and they put their own name on it. It was probably the cheapest around, and there's usually good coupons for a discount.

have u used real buddy tape before?  does it have same stretch?

get a grafted che from just fruits and exotics....or treesnmore if he has them

Annona cornifolia, seeds are over, thank you for buying.

easy to grow species for me!  thanks for offering seeds!
i got flowers on mine in about 3y and they take a freeze no problem...and aren't cursed by the cerrado..but don't let them get soggy, especially during winter..they hate wet feet during cold temps.

I buy grafting tape from It is called 'docooler nursery grafting tape. It is made of polyethylene,is of high tensile strength, is stretchable and biodegradeable. It is the best tape I have come across.

i am a creature of habit...once i started using buddy tape i got hooked, but i am interested in experimenting with some unconventional materials and products.  I've considered using old plastic grocery bags to wrap scions....but never gave it an honest effort...

Plant looks great. If your selling the seeds, save me a few :D

did seed ever germinate? that is the only fruit i ever't get a chance to taste fell

My one is flourishing and pumping out big fruit like a machine.They are booming around here also in places that had over 40 inches of rain last week with new flushes of growth. There has not a zephyr, night temps are not falling below 80f and the day temps climb through the 90s. The air is like syrup and even if your are like a starfish under the fan on full you are in a pool of sweat. The humidity has been at saturation level for weeks now but the grimal has welcomed summer with new foliage and its best fruiting ever. Heat and humidity as well as heavy rain is something they enjoy.

Grimal is more susceptible to rust than spiritosantensis...conditions that promote rust are, hot and humid...Grimal is one of most sensitive varieties in my experience, showing rust on foliage and fruits with heavy rains in FL.
