Sure , rats and mouses. They mostly empty the fruit from 1 spot and leave you only the shell.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Keeping security camera in my garden
« on: January 31, 2017, 11:05:25 AM »
I m having similar problem and i m using a wildlife cam with battery. Brand is stealth. My collegue brought me from canada... works pretty well and makes feel better to know something is recording there. We spend more energy and time than money for our plants.. i also put few fake camera with signs to give a chance to think before doing anything...but mostly they are not so smart....

Just to share a photo of dream and an observation. I have all cherimoyas and atemoyas in greenhouse. They all have new developing fruits on or flowers. I have got -3C  inside of gh. I noticed that all fruits of cherimoyas  are ok but fruits of dream  got effected badly,now they r black... Though leaves are ok.. other atemoyas lost leaves too.

Thank you for recommendation but my main problem is electricity which i dnt have in the field . so i m working on a small scale solar supply  just to run lamps at night and pond pumps(aquaponic)...  both side will have opening windows so pollinators or curious bugs can get in and out .

Gary ,
it is galvanized iron . so it dnt get rusty . about soil , i m unlucky . i guess it is  purely limestone . my garden located downhill and previous owner were excavating the hill  and laying the crushed material in the field .. so even you  give tons of water it all goes away in a second .. i just had to buy few truck load  "normal soil"  as on photo . 

i ll update photos . the main issue now is to take out plants from big pots with least damage . the  difficulty here is the soil is very heavy and there is no way to slip them out by holding from the plant so working on it to find a better way..

on the back - nordest , i ll make a line of sapotes as many friends warned me about their height potential and the rest of green house will be mostly from cherimoyas . i ll try to add new things eventually with your recommandations .

Thank for inspiration Mark !

Karen , below you can see the links related green house construction supplies. i live in greenhouse region so there are many professional companies . generally you give your dimensions and they give you all parts to connect by  capscrews
i hope that can give you some idea .. the ones i built myself before was done by basicly bending long iron pipes.

Thank you Nullzero ,
 main collection based on Cherimoya-white sapote-dragon fruits and feijoas. to make it clear , i guess it is better to attach some photo of previous greenhouse inside which was very concentrated ! it was hard to walk inside and plus had some runing Blacksoldier fly culture within small greenhouse. it was pretty much  like plastic bag that you try to fit everything in no matter what ...

Dear All,
after longtime waiting and planning;  finally finished my new greenhouse . it is 350 m2 . i wanted to share photos of construction steps . it took 2,5 days to complete . by this occasion i would like to thank you all as many of you (they know themselves)  have fingerprints on my collections and were very supporting and sharing so far and to feel this spirit among you  is amazing. otherwise it wouldnt be so easy to keep up motivation to continue to grow or creat a collections as many failures occured during past years.  there is still a longway to go - many things to learn and new things to add to my collection, thanks to you all.
Warm regards

Certainly feijoa!

I had/have similar problem. A friend in newzealand had same thing and we both were using wormcasting... We stopped and used garden soil and less  fertiliser. Most of them ok now. In worst cases,They get more yellow and drop leaves then dry.

This is interesting because soon  i will harvest also my yellow dragons - magelantus.after seeing your post ,  i think  they have a global timing for ripening. even  our locations are too diffirent , their production period is similar.

Hi Simon,
Longtime i runned after big size meg. But i couldnt find any. I ended up growing seeds from the fruits i got in spain. I guess ecuador importations. It has been 2 years. They have good size right now. I dnt know what ll be the result. Then i can share cuttings with you.

i tried it and it wasnt so good on trees. veggies liked it very much; it was visible but  for trees it was adverse effect and i was disappointed so i stopped using it . on the other hand, papayas still love it. 

I can also  help for carob.scions or seeds ? Figs as well.

i  have a special selection of Turkey's best figs. when it is cutting season i can help you . lets stay in touch.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: cherimoyas die back
« on: October 05, 2014, 02:03:58 PM »
yes Behl , you are right about this. i also observed it. i started to add more pumice stone and river sand. especially if i was transplanting from small pot or bag into bigger pots i kept root ball as it was and till new root grows , plant was more prone to such water escape effect.. but when this happens there is no yellowing and leave dropping .they are nicely green but only softened or just tips can dry as well. but once water reaches them they are back again... i havent lost a single plant because of this but i lost from that actual root problem many ....and coming winter and its stress  are making me worry.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / cherimoyas die back
« on: October 05, 2014, 05:37:14 AM »
Dear all,
 i wanted to post few photos regarding my trouble with cherimoya seedlings. some forum members who i m very thankful, have helped me to create some collection of cherimoya . seedlings are almost 1.5 years old. problem occurs on grafted or not-grafted plants. all plants are in pot- no water log and mostly in greenhouse and very hot temperatures during summer even i shade... so over watering is not very possible as i water every couple of days with limited amount... now, first they get yellow leaves then they dropped them and start to dry back from tips.  at the end whole plant dries..i know it is a root problem but i m not sure on what kind of treatment i can apply for this problem on cherimoyas... if you guide me on this issue i ll really appreciate . after many failures and difficulties i managed to get some graft succes and it doesnt feel good to loose them or the possibility of loosing them...
Thank you all
