Do a forum search for "Licia" Cherimoya from Madeira Island via JackFruitWhisperer69

Here is another pix of Leo3 good looking fruit

Frank, have you ever heard about the variety name Lucil or Lucia. I have one tree have smaller leaves and the fruit shape like your Leo3.

What variety are those huge Lychee tree's in Hilo Arboretum that go off every year?  Those can't be over 100 ft. Elevation or so...

Rainbow W. Sapote grow's slowest for me so it could be one more appropriate for hotter climates.

Processing the seeds to prepare for planting is the monkey in the middle of this plan.

I think they are mostly native to Florida and super rare in the wild at this point.

It's great someone is interested in these species,
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess to get them growing around Europe and fruit production?
I'm pretty sure monetary gain is out of the question.
I’m guilty of tunnel vision around A. triloba - I don’t know anything about these others. I would’ve thought their fruit are undesirable or else they’d be more widely cultivated.

Nice 1 Ethan! I'm sure you've got other impressive fruit happening 's in the "lab" as well.
Has anyone fruited A. Dioica grafted on Cherimoya? I had a big one in a 25 G but gave it away and lost track of her.
Speaking of which, Your 6 ft Madruno ended up at my house and is looking great by the way!


Don't tease, there's nothing stopping you from sending Mango to CA.

Oh you poor soul.....if you were not in Cali would ship you some next season

It could be time for a heat mat already. It would be impressive to overwinter these young babes., they are 24/7 greenhouse plants from November to April here.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: What citrus is this?

Same here.
Still a Citrus post better seen in the Citrus section of the forum.
Your logic could be used to post whatever, wherever.
I'm temperate as well growing sub tropicals and tropicals, doesn't mean Jaboticaba posts should reside in the temperate section, this can get confusing and mis leading for new growers is the main downside I see.

This is possibly true, but I don’t live in the tropics and citrus here grows pretty much whereever I plant it, in a temperate climate.
Any chance you know what it is?

Yes. Ashitaba is still available.

I think since Jim doesn't ship to everyone ,going through a reseller may be your best bet.
Fruitlover's has a Jim West connect and has them listed on the seed sell page.

Not a Sub tropical or Tropical fruit.
Neither are Low chill Apples.
Low chill Cherries.

Not much action in the Temperate fruit section of the forum however.

Better if this is discussed in the Temperate zone section.

Low chill peaches

Kevin Jones your Eugenia humor and animation for that matter, is always appreciated !

without seeing what was posted, Maybe your waving the moderator wand around too much.
At least give the guy with the Jabo's in Brazil a few days to update his post with prices.
Not everyone has immediate internet access or the desire to access the internet daily.

Yo , Adhemar! How ya been? How do we make this happen?

Whats the Winter plan for the potted army?
I think you could maybe grow Moringa as a 4-5 month annual.
Miracle fruit, just save your money, buy some berries, they keep in the freezer.
Pomegranates , Capers, Olives. Create protected micro climates with bomb proof plants for your area and then you can have a better chance keeping the marginal for your area sub tropicals alive.

That's what I've heard too. I'll be pruning them very heavily and keeping them in a pot as long as I can.
I'm quickly building a potted plant army while I clear out old trees on my lot. Is it true they also have a shallow root system? I have a shade tree in my front yard that produces nothing edible and is just tearing up my yard with roots I am anxious to remove. We will be redoing the front yard and I think many of my eugenias + pomegranate trees and berries will make their way out there and they will need a fast growing shade tree for the valley summers.

For the Miracle fruit I'd really love to try and grow it from seed but I'm in no rush on killing them if they're too pricey. I've gotten dozens of seeds from this site this year and I've become addicted to growing things from seed.

Filtered light of a large Oak tree makes a great nursery set up.

There are big fruiting tree's at Quarry lakes in Fremont and in San Jose.
The main requirement is patience and/or cash to buy a 15 + gallon size ( and a truck to get it home from So Cal)
I have extra 2 and 3 gallon sizes of both.

I doubt Zephian is going to return the Holiday and Stewart Tree's to go with your recomendations that were posted after the new Avocado tree's were purchased and brought home.
 Reed was not even a possibility as it was not included in the list of cultivar's available to Zephian. ( Bacon, holiday, lamb hass, mexicola, stewart)

Are you saying this is difficult or next to impossible in the environment you live in?
I have a buddy that is 57 and has had meat in his meals his whole life come to the somewhat late conclusion that human's teeth are flat for grinding fruits and veggies not sharp like cats,dogs, and other consumer's of carne. So he stopped eating meat, last guy on earth I would have thought would do this, the last. 
I do eat meat so this is for talk story not to push anything. The movie cowspiracy is an interesting conversation starter about the world and it's food supply. I usually prefer documentaries though.

Interesting. How can 2/3 of our food supply come from just 4 plants sources? Neglect at an extreme level, time people wake up to the diversity of nutritional options.
Just try going to the grocery store next time and not buying anything with wheat (flour), cow milk (dairy), or sugar (including high fructose corn syrup) in the ingredients.

And on top of that, how about eating a meat that's not beef, chicken, or pork?
