Hi guys,

I have atemoya air layered tree in the ground almost 2 years.  it's 6feet tall last summer and i pruned it back to 5feet.  I did some grafts and they pushed out then dieback.   I am curious what causes it? is it possible it'll come back?  Those are cleft grafts.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Prune and maintain fruit tree as home grower
« on: August 21, 2018, 12:15:47 PM »
Hi guys,

I have couple young fruit trees and trying to maintain their height as home grower,  not commercial/ farmer.   Also space is limited too.  I don't want fruits drop on the ground, just want enough for family and friends. 

Here are my longan and cherimoya trees.   Im thinking to prune them at 8-12" branches.

Here is longan  tree.  I cut down from 6 feet and new growths this year.  Is it good idea to leave little longer and prune back to 12-18inches?

Cherimoya is about 6" right at neighbor wall.

Thank you for your inputs

Citrus General Discussion / Who has cocktail tree? Need your advices.
« on: February 01, 2018, 09:54:07 PM »

Here is my tangerine tree that i saved.  It was pushed away by overgrown tree.
 We want orange and lemon trees but we need to save space for Longan and Atemoya trees.  So I grafted Lemon, Orange, Kumquat, and Grapefruit from CCCP scions.  So far so good, i need to let them grow and keep them in check/balance. 

Please ashare and advice your experience of care and fertilizer.  I appreciate it.
