Citrus General Discussion / Re: Do Kumquats taste better with age?

I love the Meiwa kumquats, they are sweet. My tree is loaded with fruits and this is a third crop of this year. Never tasted the Changshu though.

This is a magnificent looking fruit Galka. How does this taste compared to the Malaysian magenta? The Malaysian magenta is a pretty damn good guava when picked in the winter in so cal. Your Thai looks even more appealing. I am curious about taste. Im not a big fan of soft guavas but the deep red color has piqued my interest.

xshen, I can't compare them yet because the Malaysian didn't fruit, hopefully next year. The taste of my Thai red is pretty good. It's nice sweet and creamy, like you are eating fruit flavored yogurt. It's hard to explain. Let's say, when I eat one, I want MORE.  ;D I bet the ice cream made from this guava would be delicious.

I waited a few yrs before removing the inferior varieties. I had over 20 trees now Iím left with the top 3

Dolores seedless red only one around
Thai Cream is my late guava in November December

JF, wow 20 trees.  :) That's the way to chose the best ones you like. I have maybe 10 or so, not all of them fruited yet.

I had all those guavas and removed them. These are best guavas Iíve ever had Jalisco roja and Dolores seedless../for white Thai cream


JF, one day I will have to chose which ones are the best for me and which ones will have to go. So far there is only one that I don't really like but I gave it one more year and I will try to graft better varieties on it. Since my grafting skills are not perfect yet I cannot afford buying the scions of superior varieties and waste them. Guava is not easy to graft or root. Seeds are the easiest but unfortunately you don't sell them. I wish I could taste your best guavas.  :)  We don't have these varieties here in FL.

Your Thai red looks excellent! I've got a guava similar to yours but I haven't received fruit from it yet, definitely gets me excited to try it!
Thanks. You probably have the other close variety called Malaysian. I have two, small seedling and 8' tall air-layer I think. Didn't get any fruit from either of them. Hopefully, next year, so I can compare the fruits and the taste.

Looks great, Galka!
Do you have disease issues with guavas in Ocala? I would like to plant them here in St. Pete, but have heard that guavas are hard to care for because of high humidity and abundance of insects.

Thanks. Mine are all in containers. Last year I had some issues with white flies but they were almost everywhere. This year no problem at all. I don't know about the fruit fly in your area but here I don't have them. I have to use organza bags because of bags and lizards are eating them here and there.

No. I started my pineapples from store bought tops 7 years ago. They were not much smaller and I had big pineapples from the same plant next year and next. The mother plant will produce new plants and they will give you normal size fruit. Some of my pineapples were smaller this year but they were the sweetest and since I have many of them I don't mind.

You can leave two growing and they will fruit at the same time. I had three fruits in one container.

Looks like coco plum. Is it white inside?

Could it be a Smith Red Valencia orange?

I checked the tag on my tree and it says 'Sour". Another one I believe is an airlayer.

Yes, there is a thread about the sugarloaf pineapples. The 'Kona Sugarloaf' is spiny, the 'Sugarloaf' is spineless.

I would like to find Josapine. It was very tasty. Unfortunately, the top didn't make it.  :(

This is the pineapple I'm referring to. It is Oscar's Red pineapple.

My tree produced a two-tone branch and it is holding one green fruit. I am planning to harvest the fruit and cut the branch off to graft it to the dwarf rootstock. I saw big trees for sale at HD two years ago. The older leaves lose the variegation and new leaves are two-toned and all the fruits are green. I will have two different looking fruits from the same tree to compare next year when they get ripe.

It looks like Red pineapple with red skin that Oscar has. If you search for the 'Red pineapple' in this forum, you will find his pictures.

Mine is from Thailand too. I just ate the first fruit of this year. It's delicious! Took some pictures, loading to the computer right now. I think I need to open my own thread about this guava with a bunch of pictures.
