My folks have a huge one that grows along the ground . It fruits in both full shade and full sun sections of the plant. Under their conditions it isn’t particularly high yielding for its size, but it grows under other trees so does that matter? The fruits are nice.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: F2 citrange winter hardiness trial
« Last post by kumin on March 23, 2019, 07:33:30 PM »
Most likely, seedling # 4 could be a non-hardy F2, but more likely an F1. At this point the fact that a few hardy F2 specimens surpass the F1 hardiness has become very certain. There were also F2s that were less hardy than the F1. The partial hardiness of the F1 population was very uniform as expected.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / How to get Monstrea to fruit?
« Last post by Weboh on March 23, 2019, 07:22:26 PM »
I've been trying to get a monstrea for awhile now, and I finally found one at a neighbor's plant sale. He said he planted the original years ago. It was climbing up a tree and finally got fruit near the top. A couple other neighbors have this plant under their trees, but I didn't see any fruit on them. That got me thinking: Even though it tolerates low light, it probably needs more to fruit.

What does everyone else think? Does monstrea require more light to fruit? Is there a danger of too much light killing it? Would it fruit if kept in a gallon pot? Would limited growth help it fruit? I don't want it to get giant and still not fruit like all the other ones I see.
Thanks.

A 3-gallon avocado, that still looks very young and fresh and green-stemmed, will usually outgrow a 15-gallon, big, yellowish-woody-looking knarly tree.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fruit identification

I noticed what I think are some fruit trees around the city. There's a lot of pictures coming up (I meant to post a lot of these sooner).



These photos were taken a few months ago. I'm pretty sure it's a cherry tree. Is it?







This tree is my neighbor's. I'm not sure if it's a fruit tree or not, but it sure has a lot of flowers.






Again, a lot of flowers. Not sure if it's a fruit tree or not.








This one definitely has fruit. Not sure if it's edible, though.





These fruits are from a friend's palm tree. Are they edible?




I'm pretty sure this is a lychee tree.



Bonus for sticking around so long! I discovered there's a subdivision that has a flock of peacocks. One was showing off. I'd never seen one doing that in person before. So beautiful! Really bad picture though; I couldn't see the phone screen when I took it because of glare. :)

Hello everyone, does anyone know if Lisa Atemoya, Annona Rosada, Birula, Giant Yucatán can be grown in Northern California? Also, can we graft these onto an atemoya or it does better grafting onto a Cherimoya? I am very newbie and just love fruit trees, hopefully someone can enlighten me :). Thank you all
