The Home Depot stores had 7 and 10 gallon Red Finger limes a month ago in my area. I don't  see them now. You can try your local Flea Market. I ordered one for a friend of mine at our FM.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: will loquat survive if cut in half ?
« on: April 27, 2018, 09:36:07 PM »
spaugh Thanks, plants are amazing.  :D
arc310 No, this is a seedling that was too tall and I cut the top of it to make it shorter and to force it to branch out.

I do have an experience with 5 feet tall seedlings. This way they will branch out. When my other seedlings where 2 - 3 year old and 7 feet tall I had to cut them in a half to graft some named varieties. They are fine, in containers two.

My trees were grafted by Adam. Three trees two-in-one. The trees are not big but all of them flowered last year. I had a chance to taste only Avri and Vista. They were delicious.  Sorry, no cuttings of these two. I am going to prune the other ones since they don't have any fruit on and they need a 'haircut'.

Reading through some old reviews I found someone who had planted the Vista White from WO a few years ago. I've sent them a message asking if the tree turned out to be a Vista White or not so I'm waiting to hopefully hear back.

I am seriously considering grafting but I'll need to call around to see if my local nurseries have any seedlings for sale. A few weeks ago nobody had any loquats in stock at, seedling or otherwise. What scion varieties do you have for sale Galka if I may ask?  ;D
I have Peluche, Vista White, Tori, Avri, Novak and Puppelo. I will have to see which ones I can get scions from. Let me know what you decide to do.

Alisha, I may have some scions for sale if you want to try grafting. I have several named varieties.

Galka, all commercial groves spray low biuret urea a month or so before expected bloom.  Doing so greatly helps the tree's blooming.  I know it is late in the year for you but be sure to do it the next blooming season.

Thank you, Millet. Maybe I am speaking a little early and the tree will start pushing buds. My Tarocco didn't have any too but today I found one flower bud.

I would like to find the NZ Lemonade here in FL too.  So far, I found fruits only. The pink lemonade you can find at HD or Lowe's or any nursery (if we are talking about a variegated pink lemon).

Millet, it had and now it looks healthy green with lots of new baby leaves. I hope it will set flower buds soon. I like the fruits it produces, even though they don't get dark red inside, they are tasty.

FM - Fresh Market store, sorry for the confusion. I believe they order from Melissa's Produce.

I got some fruits at FM. I like the flavor. It reminds me of a Minneola, juicy, sour/sweet pleasant taste. No seeds so far.

My Moro didn't have fruits last year by some reason and now it's the only tree that is not flowering.  :( Is it too early to say? Will it flower a little later? It skipped a year previously, so I was sure it will fruit this spring. It's putting on new growth but not a single flower bud.

This poor thing was damaged, broke off while moving to the garage for the cold snap we had coming. The plant or I should say the trunk of the mother plant was 5 or 6 years old. It was producing fruit and suckers every year. It was hanging over the planter so I had to put a support under it. I was planning to try to root it later but it kind of happend by itself. When it broke off I didn't want to throw it away and did't have much time to 'play' with it, so I just found a container with the dead plant and just stuck it in and forgot about it. Moved it in the greenhouse first. It didn't look great, yellow/brown leaves. I pruned those leaves and brought it to the garage because of the freeze warnings and the center of the pineapple was still green-ish. I thought.... hm, maybe... and forgot about it until found it flowering the other day. What a surprise!!  ;D

What I was trying to say, look at your local Flea Markets, you may find one there. It wasn't easy for me to find it in FL and I was surprised to see it at the Flea Market.
