Not wishing to throw too much confusion into the mix but for me in the very north of nsw my Secondo producers the very best avos I have tasted. They are a fairly large fruit and ripen here from now till September, my other avo is a Lamb and they are both prolific

I have had good success with grafting generally but have had no luck with my limited attempts with Jackfruit and Starapple. I am wondering if it is due to the excess sap when I cut them ? My Canistels and Ross plants grafted well with plenty of white sap though, any ideas/tips are welcome as I will be trying again in a few months

It certainly looks different to my Rollinias

I keep mine to about 12-14 feet. It is a seedling and vigorous grower but my yard isnít large so I have to control size. The difficulty with this tree is that it is setting some of its fruit while some of previous crop is still maturing, My method is to prune back branches once I have harvested fruit from branch extremitys. If no fruit on a branch I cut it back early, some I cut back close to the fruit, occasionally I sacrifice fruit high up to control height. I still get plenty of fruit with this approach, about 80 fruit this season with the biggest 1.2kg

Any experiences with grafting onto Rollinia? I am looking to graft onto my Rollinia and am wondering what is possible?

I have heard that cincturing can help control size, but on the small experiments I have done have seen little evidence of this.

Hey Ric, how do you rate the fruit of the Delight? I had only one spot left to plant and had to choose between Delight, Purple Haze and Physical Graffiti. I planted the Delight but still have the other two. Any thoughts?

With my yellow megalanthus they taste good from 40% yellow to fully yellow.

Appreciate your input Adam, I suppose we will have a better idea in 5-10 years!

Yeah Jeff no trouble, Iíll give it a bit of time to bulk up. Happy to share some bud wood, perhaps a swap might be the go. I live in Lennox Head so not really that far away


Referring back to my previous thread here are the photos of the Coronata that I have from Daleyís. Very different looking plant, smaller leaf with little to no pubescence on the leaves. Iím hopeful that this looks more like the real deal.

That sort of stuff does my head in!

Iíl Give grafting the Ross onto Canistel a shot and report back with any results

Hi Berns (or anyone else),

Iím wondering how you got on with grafting your Ross Sapote? I have a Canistel in the ground and am hoping the Ross will graft onto it ok. Iím planning an approach graft

No, iím no Sure the proís at Daleyís have the correct ID. That plant I photographed is what they sent to my folks as Coronata but the one sent to me with the same label looks quite different. I will add photos of mine when it flushes.
I was hoping for some clarity, not trying to add to the confusion. I believe Daleyís grew theirs from seed so it could be a mix of Coronata and ?

I'm having a devil of a time trying to add an image, keeps loading new page and I can't find my loaded image!

Thanks for your input huertasurbanas, soon as I can figure out how I will load a better quality pic

Hi all, this thread is scratching right where I'm itching. I have purchased 2 Coronata Jaboticabas, both are seedlings from Daley's nursery and both look very different. These photos are all from the tree I bought for my folks and the leaves are about twice the size of mine and keep their fine hairs a long time (can't remember if my leaves are even hairy, will check in a few days).

So is this seedling more like the Coronata or showing hybrid variation? Any input is greatly appreciated, will post pics of mine at home soon if there is interest.

How about cutting it 12-18 inches above break and try inarching grafts bridging the break. Possibly could use material from top of tree to graft with and if it works keep canopy compact until grafts and trunk strengthen. No guarantee but worth a shot I reckon

MikeT it sounds like you should ignore your garden more often!! I have recently planted out 2 Lucs so hopefully you will get some fruit set soon, very keen to hear your review. I'd also love to get hold of seeds of Russells sweet in the future when they are around next if you have any spare. Cheers

Just wondering if Lucs G. Set fruit ok by themselves or do I need a second? I have another one that I can plant out but would have to plant within 2 feet of the first, I simply have no more room. I do have an Achacha about 30 feet away but am uncertain that it will help my Luc's. any wisdom appreciated!
