Cordyla pinnata looks like it has better edibility if tropical ferns database is accurate.

Looks like it would be possible in parts of Hawaii and Puerto Rico for those in the U.S.  Would be interesting if it could cross with other species.

Awesome do you have pictures ? Is it an easy grow from seed ?

Yeah its easy to grow from seed. Here is a picture of about a 8 month old seedling at the time.

Yeah I am growing it. Pretty plant, moderately fast growing. Supposedly fruits a couple years from seed.

The fruit could of been an elangated lychee with spikey protruding like a pulsaan. I wish I took a picture. Perhaps it was a chance lychee seedling.

I have used the Oakton pH model listed here. Works well but you will need calibration fluid after using it for a bit. Also read the instructions a lot of models require the diode to be kept wet in storage liquid or distilled water.

Make sure you clean the diode after use well with running tap water then use distilled water and a soft cloth if needed.

These ones are much cheaper,

I can get double the amount for the same price.

Someone in San Pedro grew what looked like pulasan in there yard, person worked for the ILWU. They brought some fruit to my old work to try, I tried some it was juicy and sweet and did not look like a lychee. I never got to see the tree though.

Yeah they grow well, treesandmore nursery close by in Palm city has a nice mature tree. You should be able to buy one there as well.

How much were u asking for the salak and how big?

$8 was 3" tall.

Nice. I have some Kei Apple seedlings started, otherwise I would pick them up.

If anyone is interested in them, grab both because they are male and female, so you want to have a couple to hopefully have male and female for pollination.

BTW, the stamvrug seedlings I got from you last year are doing well!

Good to hear about Stamvrug, would love to see a picture!

I have the following for sale;

Two Kei Apple seedlings for $6 + shipping

One 'Bali' Salak seedling sold

Looks like your going to lose most of your plants in the pictures, beside the guavas, Jabos, and lychee.

Lol, nice Photoshop.

I have a Eugenia calycina seedling for trade. I am looking any of the following to trade;

Willughbeia sp.
lerene, Calathea Allouia
Lannea edulis
Vitex doniana
Vitex payos
Macrotyloma geocarpum
Uapaca kirkiana

Up for other trades as well, selective though.

Angel Red is pretty good a nice sweet and sour flavor, its a little sweeter then Wonderful. Wonderful has the classic sweet tart flavor. I have not tried Sweet yet.
Thanks, nullzero. I will buy eversweet if  I encounter one next time

Eversweet is sold here:  Out of stock atm though.

You want to grow eversweet variety of pomegranate. It's mostly sweet with very little acid.

Great pictures Buddy, amazing collection. Great job hoping you get great future harvests  ;D.

A continuous stretch of light is better. I have ran LED lights for 20 hours on and 4 off. You really have to experiment, depending on the plant it will respond differently sometimes it triggers flowering and flushing on different light schedules, other times it can slow down growth rather then speed it up. Usually more hours of light means faster growth.

Most tropical plants prefer more then 12 hours of intense light for faster growth and more flushes. Annual vegetables and hibernating plants it would confuse more, with things like early bolting and slowed growth etc.
