well, since you live near a canyon, I would not reccomend growing such fruits, as they are better suited to the coast or the hilly regions. Longkongs/Langsats seem relatively hardy so far, star apples will suffer damage easily at 40 degrees and below. If I were in your situation I'd either a)move to a better location b)grow them in a greenhouse and c) grow the various delicious stone fruits available. I'd rate the langsat around the same as mahogany trees in terms of hardiness. It does seem to make a good houseplant

Reverse osmosis water is the type of water that you drink form the sink raw, it usually comes in a smaller version of the faucet on the side, and is filtered by the long, thin tube under the sink.

It could be from the ungodly santa ana winds we had the other day, my tropicals suffered a bit of burn like that as well, mainly my cherimoya, cacao, coffee, and soursop. It could also be the hard water, you an flush it out with some reverse osmosis water once a month, anyways, Happy Gardening, Matt

Keep both of them, in my experience, the strongest is the clone, and if the seeds come up mono, it may be because the nucellar seedling outcompeted all the other ones. Although occasionally you'll get a strong zygote.

I Would't refrigerate them, as they go not viable within days as i have noted, graft them immediatl y

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ID these problems?

Hello, my soursop tree has yellowing leaves and some burns in the middle, is it from the Santa Ana winds? My mango trees all have burning lower leaves on margins and look light green/ somewhat chlorofic. Some of the leaves also come out deformed, will they live? Thanks, Matt

I had only 1 sprout

I'd go for flanders, those things are delicious, and suited for the coastal climate Cheers!

I'm using the tree for shade so I can grow an achacharu and a cacao . I can get a ladder and pollinate. Sure it's kinda inconvenient, but I'm using it for canopy

Hello, I have a el bumping cherimoya tree with tip burn and some yellowing leaves, is this because of the Santa Ana’s? It reached 102 with 19 percent humidity.

they will germinate in transit, I have grown mango seeds that way

If you grow them in the proper soil, at least 2 weeks, for avocados, you might want to kiss it goodbye after a few days, more importantly, is the water running or stagnant, that affects how much oxygen the plants can pull from the water. Bananas will come back from anything, mangos the same. The ones I'd worry about most would be DragonFruit and avocados, If all else fails, use an injection of Agri Fos to kill whatever diseases form

OS from top tropicals is not legit, you'll have better luck asking some local guys on the forum maybe next year, or if anyone in CA has a fruiting tree, ask them. The OS from top tropicals is a LZ. Os generally has flat leaves and a valencia orange smell to the leaves, and the new growth is somewhat transluscent

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Star Apple seeds not germinating
« on: September 23, 2017, 09:52:18 AM »
They were crysophyllum cainito seeds, and they were as fresh as could be. I'm just bamboozled. I will see if they do anything with the heating Mat I installed a week ago. I think it was too cool

I had Junglesop, rollinia, soursop, mamey, durian, cacao, tamarillo, mangos, garcinias, etc. germinate in that garage. I have some grow lights installed there, and theres some sunlight that come through the window. I set up the lights on a timer from 8pm to 6 pm. Would that give off thermal light pulse? It seems like there is a thermal light pulse there. the light I used was a 100 watt heat lamp amplified LED grow light, with all the spectrums covered. I unfortunately do not have the luxury of a greenhouse, but I am building one soon. I put them under a seedling heating mat for them to see what they will do. I am waiting for pitagatuba(2 months), jaboticaba aureana(less than 1 month), jaboticaba vextator(less than 1 month), Pindaiba, Star apple, duguetia peruviana, and Isan Indigo sugar apple seeds. I'm just confused as I've had things germinate all the time in there, although I do remember it took my Madruno forever to germinate, then suddenly came out of the ground.

Thanks

Sorry, actually it's only been 2 months, anyways, all i did was sow the seeds at the start of July in my garage, in some peat moss and pumice. Anyways, how long would achachairu take to germinate? And how long would jaboticaba aureana take to germinate

Hello, I got 10 green star apple seeds in the garage right now, and they haven't germinated for 3 months. When I cracked one open, it was sort of firm/soft like a ripe cherimoya. Is that normal? What is the usual sprouting time for star apple? Thanks, Matt

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What Hardiness Zone am I?
« on: September 14, 2017, 09:22:51 PM »
Hello, I've been wondering about my hardiness zone, as there are some weird stuff that grows outside just fine in my microclimate. As My neighbor has Lobster claw Heliconias that don't freeze in the winter(NORTH FACING), also Monstera deliciosas and Kentia palms grow fine without protection. Lime trees also do well without protection, so do tomatos. Jackfruits and soursops do well too, didn't have to protect mine much during cold winter this year. Also I noticed that while my friends at school said they had icicles on their roofs last year, my neighbors said that there weren't any, nor did I see any. I am 263 feet above sea level. Cavendish bananas also fruit consistently as I've seen. It's been bizzare to say the least. I've been trying to pull of Langsats and Durians recently, as I love those fruits, wonder how far I can get with them? What type of Climate am I? I get Ocean Winds in the Afternoon to counteract santa anas, and the humidity is an avg of 50 percent I'd say. The USDA Zone says I'm 10b, and my sunset zone is 23. I've been debating that it might be zone 11a with the microclimate fluctuation here. If I'm zone 11a or 11b, do you guys think I should try langsats or Durians under some large trees to create an even more humid atmosphere? Thanks, Matt
