Tropical Fruit Discussion / Need help to ID this avacado.
« Last post by Si Duong on Today at 12:57:44 AM »
When I bought a home and there was a big avacado tree in the front yard but I don't know what variety of it. Please help!

The fruits are big, little fiber on the top where stem is.
The flesh is watery creamy white and the skin almost paper thin as you can see in the picture with the flashlight underneath.
The taste very mild about 50% less tasty than Hass.

Plant them fresh and treat them like a normal seed. I could be wrong but I don't think they much more recalcitrant than many other Annona seeds that you can store for extended periods. I have had really good germination with soursop. No ga3 required.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Anyone familiar with Florida Grande peach?
« Last post by achetadomestica on February 19, 2018, 11:42:38 PM »
I checked out the info from UF and the Florida grande isn't mentioned?
I have one and this is the second year since I planted it. It is suppose to only
need 75 chill hours. I also have a Floridaglow, Floridasnow, tropic beauty, and 2
sunraycers. Last year it only had a couple fruit and they were smaller in size like
the other types. This year it is full of flowers and putting on leaves already.  It is
ahead of everything except my Florida snow. I am very happy with the growth so far
and am really glad I have it. A couple of my peasches are old 6-7 years old and I have heard
they don't live long? I heard 10-12 years and recently someone else said 6-8? Every ripe
florida peach I have eaten blows away any Georgia peach. The last several winters we
didn't have enough chill hours and I still get peaches every year. So far the Flroidaglow is
my favorite.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Looking for Achacha Seeds

I'm looking for around 100 seeds. is it possible to supply that quantity? I saw your post on the garcinia scions they look amazing.
No problem my tree is a heavy bearer, is the Australian commercial variety, nice size, and totally rounded, no nipple at all, that is very important for commercialization as fruit looks better and easier to packing, in my garden sets two crops a year...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Don't throw away those passionfruit leaves!
« Last post by huertasurbanas on February 19, 2018, 11:13:09 PM »
I like this info. I have been reading a lot about guava leaves tea, but passionfruit leave is a new discovery to me, good to know, since i have a lot of leaves which i have been giving to the chicken :)
I am wondering if it is possible to mix different leaves in one tea to make a super tea which combines different medicinal properties (guava - passion fruit for example, + green tea to bring the good taste to the mixture).
I considered doing it with guava leaves and green tea, but i was afraid that the two types of leaves will activiate "dangerous" compounds when boiled together, or at least they activate some compounds that neutralize each other's effect. I guess there are no scientific evidence to deny or confirm such fears, so what do you think about this? is it probably safe to mix different plant leaves in one super tea?

I use to mix pitanga and guava leaves for tea (I like more the pitanga taste... the mix is very good, even my daughter drinks it), sometimes some campomanesia as for instance c. lineatifolia and pitanga, or even another psidiums... not bad at all.. but they are from the same family...

Here's an idea, if you want better taste, put a couple of cinnamon leaves in there when you make the tea.  Cinnamon leaf tea also has many, many health benefits, combine the two and you may live forever ;-)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 5+ must have for SW Florida??
« Last post by Coach62 on February 19, 2018, 11:08:32 PM »
I appreciate the input.  Even the PM's.  Got one interesting suggestion on PM, an achacha.  I had never heard of it, looked it up and it gets rave reviews.

If it's one of the UF (University of Florida) varieties, UF actually describes their own peaches on their website.  I have had a few of the UF varieties and have been very impressed.  My peach trees all died in the post Irma flood, I have 2 here to go into the ground and very much look forward to having fresh peaches again.

Here it is, I found it.  This will answer all of your questions.  It will tell you what peach is best for your area.  I highly suggest you just go off of this article, since UF is responsible for almost all of the Florida specific peaches, tomatoes, etc.
