Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: New ID from Fiji Islands
« Last post by Reafs on Today at 09:46:33 AM »
Just got that one from a guy at the local market. He said to me he brought back the seeds from Fiji and it is a fruit tree? It is definitely not a matoa ( fijian longan ) but I just can't put an id on it . Any help and comments welcome.

I agree with John regarding sapodilla and loquat. Both are handsome trees.

Unlike lychee, neither is likely to stripped of its fruit while you're at Publix.

The only reason I'm considering going is to get some of these new hybrids.
I don't know how long it will take for other nurseries to start carrying them.

I have a canal bank that needs some extremely disease resistant mango, I wouldn't mind trying the hybrids there

Tropical Fruit Discussion / what is it ?
« Last post by vitiga on Today at 09:18:44 AM »
Just found that tree yesterday with dozens of green fruits and superb white flowers. I don't know what it is and if it is ripe, edible ?
Here are a few pictures. Any ideas welcome.

I haven't brewed in years, but have noticed that the pomegranate arils that we buy from the supermarket ferment easily and quickly. It smells potent, and you can taste the alcohol when biting into them. Might be a good fruit to try brewing and making wine with.

On a backyard scale if regulations permit diverting sink, shower and clothes washer gray water drains to irrigate an avocado tree might work well. You would have to regulate toxins you might put down the drains.
