The Ha'a Ha'a is super productive, and gets to about 6-8 feet. You can cut the stalk without getting on a ladder. The fruit is on the small size and has a good flavor.

It is also similar to the other name Cedar Bay Cherry, this one comes from Colombia and Venezuela.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango ID wrong cultivar?
« on: September 05, 2018, 07:59:45 PM »
I received this budwood a few years ago in Southern California here from a member saying that it was "Kesar". Obviously it's not. Does anyone have any ideas? Keitt? I'm on the very southern coast of California and it is by far the largest mango I have grown so far because of our mild summers.

Thanks

By the way, where do we get a copy of the Paul Thompson book?  Cant fine any for sale online.

Leo Manuel of San Diego, California is the publisher and source for the book.
I believe Leo doesn't have any copies left. Someone was asking if they could make a copy of it.

Rebar is not stiff enough. I've seen design like yours drooped.

Do you put nuts at end?
If you prune your vines you can keep them light enough and not bend the rebar. Mine have been in the ground over 6 years and I trim out old vines and keep the structure stable.

What’s the taste like?  I tried to read about it online but there’s not much information. I’m definitely interested in seeds.
The taste is mild similar to Australian beach cherry. No sour taste at all.

12
5 seeds for $10 plus $2 shipping. Only available for sale to USA addresses. Fruit is similar in growth to Australian Beach Cherry or Cedar Bay Cherry. Withstands probably down to high 20's. Taste is similar to Beach Cherry also, it is mild and fruits after about 3 years.

Thanks

I have about 8 posts in the ground at my place. Most are stainless steel or galvanized steel from a metal recycler place in Chula Vista. They are about 8-10 feet tall, I dig a 3 foot hole and fill with concrete and then at the top drill holes and place two pieces of rebar to form a cross covered with irrigation hose. They have lasted many years. I do have one or two 4 inch thick redwood posts that I did the same way. Here is a photo of one of the redwood setups.

I have fresh Pouteria lucuma seeds for sale. The price is $3 each minimum 3 plus $3 shipping in US. Sorry no sales outside of US.

Doesnt look like Brewster (plus flesh of Brewster tends to stick to the seed and have larger seeds).  What level of acidity?  That will define if Mauritius.
Thanks Rob,

There is a little acidity in the not totally ripe ones, but the majority are just fine.

Simon,
For sure it isn’t Sweetheart, it came from Caltropical and the leaves are a lot smaller than Sweetheart. Maybe it is Mauritius.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lychee small seed variety

So, the lychee tree I have which I think is Brewster is giving me an awesome percentage of chicken tongue seeds.

Here is a photo of the opened Golden Nugget jackfruit from here in southern California. I think it fell off the tree a bit soon. There weren't very many mature seeds. The edible flesh was nice and sweet.


21
Nice Mark.  Is your tree out in full exposure?
Yes, it’s in full sun and been in the ground maybe 5 years

22
I went out today and noticed my first and largest Jackfruit had fallen. I was wondering if this is the right size and color for a ripe "Golden Nugget"? I't's been on the tree over a year, and in California.


23
Mine is in a 15 gallon and flowers great, but no fruit hold. How cold has yours been able to handle? Is it in the ground?

Is it in full sun? It needs sun to hold more fruits.

Our trees are ground at my garden, -3º C with no damage at all, and -6ºC with very little damage, just some new leaves and not so much... holding fruits after -6º
Good to know, my be should do fine once in the ground.
Thanks

« on: July 22, 2018, 11:44:40 PM »
I purchased from Ong’s nursery and they said it was airlayed.  It was suppose to be a green wax jambu.  I can get everything to fruit in my yard by this wax jambu.  So i got a black diamond that has fruit on it from last year.  I am going to see if it is not fruiting because of my watering ot just my luck.
Sometimes different trees are slower to fruit. Just don't trim it back, keep it watered and maybe add some high bloom fertilizer.
