Does anyone know if Artocarpus integer has been fruited in Florida?

I saw the trees today and there was no pubescence on the new growth. Looked like heterophyllus to me. I haven't heard of anyone fruit Chempedak in Florida. I have some small trees I am experimenting with out of zone.
My small  Xie Shan is blooming like crazy after being planted in the ground this Spring.
Since it is small (about 40" tall), should I pull the blooms off?

New blog post, Sugarcane Has Arrived!   ;D

If I don't kill the cuttings, some will be potted the entire year, moved into the garage for Winter and some will go in-ground on the South edge of our home, which is the most warm place and always has green grass.  These will also be heavily mulched in Winter.

It dropped to 30 last night.  This was the first sub freezing temperature since December.  Hopefully there will not be too much plant damage.

I have read books and many journal papers on citrus, but much of what I have learned of citrus is from that website.  Thanks for making it available again.

PM sent.

I made concrete posts.   They work very well. The roots adhere to the concrete very well. No burlap needed.   I tried to make my posts not have something on top but realized that they needed something on top for support as the plants cascaded down. So I put a long piece of rebar inside the concrete as I made it and had that rebar protrude up through the top middle of the concrete which gave me an attachment point for  A pressure-treated wooden post which I drove rebar through and put hog wire on the rebar.


You might want to cover the top thin metal wires with something, as they will dig into the vine's flesh once they start to hang over and fruit, making them quite heavy.
Added Jabuticabas, weeping mulberry, etc.

Wanted to send out a big "Thank You!" to Brandon aka cbss_daviefl for hooking me up yesterday. Beautiful private backyard "nursery" with a ton of tropical fruit trees. Got a tour of the grounds and learned a bit. Well worth the drive.

Picked up this beautiful red hybrid jabo.

Already flowering and fruiting

Jabo sprouts. Are these separate plants or are they part of the mother plant?

Also picked up a few Maha Chanok scions, added to nam doc mai 4. Think I overdid it with the buddy tape, lol.

Also acquired some dream atemoya scions, added to Gefner last night. And my friend got a beautiful angie mango to replace the one that Irma took out.
