To be frank, i'd love to see asian citrus varieties. They are delicious, especially this pomelo from Fujian, I tried it from some grower in SD I know that brought it back from China, It was super sweet despite being grown on the coast, not to mention nearly as large as a basketball. I wonder how HLB is controlled in China, its country of origin. Perhaps the psyllids natural predator resides along with it, keeping balances and checks, while here in America, we lack said predator, making the psyllids unstoppable. Maybe we won't have GMO citrus after all  :D

That really sucks, I just planted a bunch of Citrus trees in my new home in Fullerton, should i just plant some mango trees or suriname cherry instead?

Thank you so much, I sprayed some Agri Fos on the seedling, and the blackening seems to be going away, will it affect the seedling natively? and on the even better side, I see the first leaves trying to come out!

Hello, there seems to be a black thing growing on my durian seedling, Is there a treatment for such a thing, and if not, where could I get the cheapest durian seeds? Thanks, Matt

They generally tend to go away on their own, but I'd reccomend either spinosad or neem oil to get rid of them. They were a problem before but now the predator has been introduced it hasn't been a problem since

EDIT: It'll go away on its own

Got it, Thanks Rob.

Got it, it didnt reach below 72 on my thermometer last night, but the humidity has been averaging 40-50%, not very humid as you can tell, so i just misted lightly and then put a slightly perforated ziploc bag over it. Hope It'll break soon! I Did a crap ton of research around durian growing, and I found a few forums mentioning some people who tried to grow durian in CA. Apparently, they don't mind our lack of humidity, and 40 degree weather, but the biggest killer seems to be Phytopthora as you guys said too. I'm just gonna leave it outside in the shade once the first few leaves have hardened off.


Right, I remember now, sorry about that. How long should i wait for the durian leaves to come out? I also Plastic bag with slight holes over it, along with misting it, hope it'll help it along, I originally had 2 seedlings, but I gave the other one to a nurseryman I know personally.

Thanks, Matt

No Problem

Sorry, I did it this time. forgive me, I am not very adept at writing things on the internet

Thanks for understanding, Matt

What rootstock is the mango tree on

Thank you!

Hello, I have had this durian seedling for 18 days now in my garage. It started to brown from the bottom and I was afraid it was going to die, so I scratched off a tiny piece of the new bark and stopped after one scratch. Will i kill it if I scratch a tiny bit of it off?

Thanks, Matt

How hot did it get in your area, the heat might have caused the tree to abort its fruit

My trees have been perfectly fine, i watered them twice a day, just had a drip irrigation set up, and the only damage i saw was a bit of sunburn on my cherimoya leaves, other than that my trees were in tip top shape. didn't reach above 96 though...

Good to know, thanks and no problem

Hey, I learned from the Laguna Hills Nursery Owner that he paints his mango trees like an avocado. Maybe the reason why turpentine rootstocked mangoes have extreme dieback is that as the leaves droop and die, it exposes the tree branches and bark to sun, cooking it alive. Starting to think mangoes are extremely like avocado trees

Humidity is 70-80 percent in my garage, don't know why, my coffee, vanilla and rollinia grow great there though

Hello, I got a chanee durian seed last week and it has started to put out the green stem, should I uncover more of it or let it extend itself? The garage hardly gets below 60 degrees, and it is being supplemented by 5100K LED grow lights before I build my greenhouse.

Thanks, Matt

Simon, interesting, It seems that 3 centimeters is an appropriate size cutting off the mangoes to trick them. I used a ruler and measured them at 3 cm before cutting them. Thanks for the info!

I heard from a guy who grew florida mangoes in California to pluck off the fruits after they get to the size of a large lima bean, then it thinks it's done fruiting for the year. I tried it myself and even in cold weather, the mangoes don't seem to be putting out new flowers, rather, a heck more leaf growth has pushed out!

Might wanna throw it away, it's not gonna recover from such damage, rotting as it ripens. On the plus side though, you might get even more growth on your mango trees this year!

I can't say for sure, but definitely no root diseases will spread as they are completely separate species

its a sandwich bag, and i took special care to make all the roots intact, I might try the newspaper though.

Thanks, Matt
