I would have a grumichama if I had the room just for the blossoms. And the cherries too.

I have a calamondin in a container that is about 30 years old and that size but not as bushy.

Yesterday I was at a nursery in NJ that had a large calomondin in a container.  An employee told me it was ~40yrs old if I heard her right.   I had never seen one this large. 

Hi, Nimfa

These are growing quickly here in Vieques. I notice color variations amongst the leaves on different seedlings. Nice! Thank you

Just picked a nice rollinia/biriba (yesterday). Have yet to try fruit from this tree. Have eaten what I think was frozen rollinia before, and it was good. Excited to finally try fresh, and get an idea if the fruit I'm growing is any good.

Does rollinia need to be totally yellow to eat? Picked on yesterday, and it is almost completely yellow with a few green streaks remaining. Should I wait till all yellow?

fresh picked


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Sweet Tart Budwood Graft

Hope you have success with your grafted Sweet Tart. From my own experience, mango grafts are most successful from late July to Early September when temperatures are highest and both the scion and rootstock are in full bud swell and growth mode.

Here is a recent photo of my Sweet Tart mango tree blooming on manila rootstock. I grafted this Sweet Tart in Late July 2016 and it has grown quite nicely over the past 1 1/2 years. The Bottom Photo is my Coconut Cream Mango Tree which was grafted to a manila seedling in late August 2016.


I know a guy who grew up in Israel and farmed there. So he has drip irrigation in his blood years before he came to Florida. Israelis being the pioneers in drip irrigation.

He bought some fruit trees and mangoes from me. He has land in upstate Florida in Frostproof (a town) with lychee and mamey and some others. I have eaten his lychees and even sold them to local lychee hounds. He uses zero mulch and the soil is as porous and sandy as most Florida soils. So zero or nearly zero organic matter is in the soil. He uses fertigation plus also uses fertilizer you spread on top. The fruit trees do well.

So you can go this way and others have called it a form of hydroponic gardening as a joke. But this is true. The soil is adding a minimum to his fruit trees nutrition. The soil is there to merely hold his fruit trees upright.

That time of the year - went outside and smelled the flowers before I saw them. Looks like the whole tree (which we keep around 7') will soon be completely covered in flowers and fruit.
