Subscribed.  I'll be down in June and stop by then.

I got three of my trees planted, I can't find any Lavern Manilla right now but they should be showing up in the garden centers soon.

This first picture is my California Super Mango rootstock with multiple supporting rootstocks of various varieties. All the other seedlings in this bed are just random seedlings I'll use for future grafting.

Next is my Lemon Zest seedling. This guy is ugly with only a few leaves left. I keep plucking leaves off of it to show other growers that this seedlings sap smells just like the actual grafted Lemon Zest variety.

Next is a very vigorous Kent seedling.

I disturbed the roots a bit while planting these seedlings so I'm going to let them recover a bit before topping them in order to develop a low canopy.

I didn't realize this was a "tupelo" tree, as in tupelo honey.
From what I read, it sounds like the fruit is not much to write home about, as you said. But still cool that you have them.

They took a while to get back to me the first time I emailed them.  A couple of follow up emails I sent were not answered. 

I think you can pull up their facebook page and they might have their phone number too.  A little Googling will find it.

You've got to remember, they are a huge operation and usually only deal with retailers who are ordering thousands of plants at a time, so the little guys like you and me probably don't get as much attention.

I don't know that fruit but it looks like a passiflora to me.
Citrus General Discussion / Re: Is Dekopon An Alternate Bearing Variety

I picked my last two Dekopon fruit today.  Since the variety is alternate bearing, next years crop should be a small crop. Guess I need a second Dekopon tree in order to get a good crop every year.
