Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Dream Annona Scion *No Mas*

I know, I checked my PM and realized they're practically free.
I'm all done cutting.

Geez. At that price I might buy them. Hahahahaha.

Citrus is fine in the 40's. It could have been rootbound and needed up potting when you bought it. Citrus need 8 hours of direct light and monthly fertilization for success. Put it outside in the Sun from May to September. cut off the dead portion and good luck.

The most heartbreaking plant seizure Ive heard yet.

And the USDA can change what they allow in even after material has been imported legally. I had 50 lychee plants seized after they were in quarantine for a year. No insects or disease present. Only they decided with China that no more lychee material were allowed to be imported into the US.

San Diego CRFG will have an annonas meeting on March 28. You should go see what they have. Their prices were very reasonable the last time I attended.

CRFG is charging for scion now?

Is this for novelty? I can't see any advantage over starting seeds. Cherimoya roots are delicate and spindly enough as it is.

If you must move it then yes cutting the smallest branches and defoliating can help it deal. Have the hole your putting it in ready to go and move it straight there when you dig it up.

Looks like some tasty Bacon.

Chinese Mulberry. I have large Male and Female tree's ready to Prune if you would like to try starting this species from a Cutting.
$3 per cutting sent in Vermiculite.
Please send PM. Ready to trade as well.

White Sapote scion is good to go again.

"Smathers" is the only named C. Tetrameria I have come across. I had 1 successful graft last year onto C. Edulis rootstock and its very cool to see it growing side by side with a C. Edulis branch. I should probably cut the C. Edulis branch off and have 1 singular focused C. Tetrameria graft.
I had not heard that about Suebelle before.

I have grafted the wooley white sapote onto suebell.

Is that Smathers or a different one? Are there other named C. tetrameria besides 'Smathers'? I have heard that Suebelle is an edulis/tetrameria cross.

Absolutely, Wait a week and see what happens with the weather.

Do you think the cold snap we are about to enter will be detrimental to success rate? Also should i try to get greenwood and graft to greenwood?

Mango lovers everywhere are inspired by your Mango Multi . Hoping you can change the diagnosis and save the patient.It's amazing how old diseased or hollow trunk tree's can keep on fruiting prolifically.

Great follow up Maxi! Mango lovers in Socal should be inspire by your success.

Thats hilarious, Thanks for that factoid.

Few know that chamba was actually the inspiration behind British anarchist rock band Chumbawamba. Good harvest song.

Your grasping at straws and finding something to be angry about , I wasn't dissing you . I explained the sitch multiple times .
I do even live in tropics nuff nuff so ya realllly dun know. Your also clueless on my feeling's regarding Americans, Internationals or anything else.

As I previously stated, When someone showed their ass to you directly by responding to your question of "why not buy a bigger pot" with "Duh, Money" , I defended the thing and you made clear you had no idea what was even going on there as well.
It could be lost in translation ,like you being the only person to ask Merriam-Webster-Oxford what "Riff Raff" means by definition so you could hang on to something to be pissed about. It exists in your mind.
Focus in your strength and powers and do a next positive thing.

Re: My Jackfruit Tree leaves look sickly.....

Really ? You asked for suggestions for your doomed jackfruits and the one viable response to actually help you and you respond like a kook? No one knows that your not resourceful enough to find what you need for your project . Nor should anyone that is taking time to offer you advice to help you, be responded to like that , no doy fa real though.
Your jackfruits are already dead though so you can take your $2 pot back and save your money at least, or wear it like a hat.

Locals Only: Im familiar with this term. It no longer applies in real life with the internet exposing many former secret, local's only spots.
Local's only is a funny term to apply to the board, While the board can be Florida Centric during Mango season especially , There is no Locals only place because everyone is a Local wherever they are , and the board's "Home" is not specific to any location.

Looks like a Silverberry. Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Elaeagnus Plant ID help
« on: February 12, 2018, 02:21:15 PM »
I found some huge bushes in a local park. I've never seen Elaeagnus plants this big before. Taste's kind of like a plum. I realize it's probably Goumi but I've never tasted Goumi . Thanks for the help.

Im sorry for using a term that you are grabbing onto and continuing to use negatively. I explained my intention in the post above and there was not a negative connotation intended. I could have used 50 different terms to describe it. I've had your back on other threads and there was confusion and something missed in translation there as well. So let it go. I will try a quick analogy again, Its much easier for you to share Mangosteen seeds to your friends in Thailand than it is to fill out export paperwork and mail them to someone in Sweden, You don't know that they'll arrive alive, and if the Post fails to deliver in time , someone could be upset about "wasting money". Thats it. I love folks from all over the world. I also realized when i travel to other english speaking countries, we don't always understand each other speaking the same language, I have to modify to be understood.
Marklee, sorry for the confusion on your sale thread. Do you have 10 Pitomba seed's left to sell?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: White sapote seed safety
« on: February 12, 2018, 11:38:54 AM »
I fail to see the humor in a dog eating a toxic seed. I do however know a dog that loves eating White Sapote. Must be pretty smart to avoid the chicken tongue seeds.

I wouldn't worry about it. Large seed with a tough coating. I decorticate before I sow mine and it is a pain. If someone makes it to that point they deserve what they have coming.

Haha, probably a dog would eat it not a person.

Marklee, I only meant that plenty of folks will only send seeds to Foreign if they have experience with the individual previously buying or trading . Luc has no doubt sent you good material in the past so i'd bet you have no problem sending him stuff, whereas getting a random PM from a newbie you've never dealt with is why people say no shipping outside USA. It can be a hassle, and there is a separate form to fill out and if it doesn't arrive people are disappointed.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Cherimoyas as rootstock
« on: February 11, 2018, 11:42:08 AM »
Ive had the most success with 3/8" and larger or 1-2 years old. The bigger the better though.

Sunny, That can be very rude to not have questions answered . People can be rude from anywhere in the world. The rudest individual who never answers my questions is in California. This does not have anything to do with splitting the forum.


It works both ways, though i think folks might go ballistic if your Luc's Garcinia seed sales were limited to Mexico only.
It's probably just to shoo away riff faff and does not apply to friends & family.
I'm glad i read this though, Im going to try grafting Luc's on Imbe , that makes a lot of sense for speeding up growth.

Hey Mark , been very occupied and only noticed your post today ...then I noticed ' USA only ' ...I respect that , no problem ...If it was somebody else I'd be pissed and sue for discrimination ....LOL......
So...since I can't get your seeds that produce in 3 some years can you give me some advise ? I have one struggling tree , lots of die back , full sun , probably close to 10 years old , flowered a couple of times , no fruit set , regular watered ....did better when it was still in a large planter . WTF am I doing wrong ? Hope to hear from you my friend . BTW great tip on grafting Luc's to Imbe  .

No doubt, No doubt. Finger always points over there, not right here.
This idea may not be gaining traction because it could be filed in the not necessary or particularly useful file. If a seller does not answer a question that is not already obvious or described in the post like location, freshness of material etc. that's a warning sign to buy from someone else. Most of the seller's here build up a good reputation, or not and are blown out of the water rather quickly.

Monkeyfish.... Your all for local's only & want a special link for only local's & want members to put where their country of origin is, but on your profile its just  " south of the river " Where in the world is that location ?????
