Stunning Brad!  They really look good and man, what excellent choices.

Love the pine needle mulch.

Thanks Mark and Scott.  I have more of the Hawaiian ones that were grafted in late summer.  They're all planted out too but still super tiny.  Once they hit their stride I will take some pics.  These ones in these photos are going to take off when it warms up.

Anyway I am officially done planting avocado trees.  I think we ended up with around 40 trees.

Pine mulch, yeah I have a good local tree trimmer that is happy to being me the stuff.  I have him only bring pine or pine mixes.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Tree planted too shallowly (?)
« Last post by Triloba Tracker on Today at 10:26:43 AM »
In the spring of 2018 I planted this one year old pawpaw seedling.

I guess I was a little sloppy and didnít get it deep enough and/or the potting mix settled a bit.

Either way, some roots are exposed near the base of the trunk.

The tree seems healthy enough - it doubled in size in its first year in the ground.

The roots have mostly lignified by now.

Any reason to do anything about this, and if so, what would it be?

You are probably mixing up pomelo and grapefruit.
They were sold as white pomelos.
Two supermarkets here have surprising amount of variety, even though it's far outside of commercial citrus growing territory.
(Page mandarin, mandarinquat, Buddha's hand citron, even Yuzu, just to name a few)

They were also bigger and more pomelo-like than the white grapefruit I have seen them sell.
I know the difference between grapefruit and pomelo. These could have been a pomelo.

When you will grow citruses longer, you find that shape of leafs varies a lot within a years.
I have Jaffa red pomelo seedlings and the shape of new leafs is different each season. From leaves with huge petioles, bigger than yours, to leaves without petioles even without border between leaf and leaf stalk like true citrus medica has.

Vary nice collection of rare fruits. Can you please describe tastes of Mangifera pajang, Ellateriospermum tapos, Nephelium meliferum, and Etlingera eliator?
Mangifera pajang: Fibrous sweet and sour, strong smell and flavour (a little bit like kuini), huge seed.
Ellateriospermum tapos: like almond but as it's an Euphorbiaceae it's seem to be dangerous to eat a lot even roasted.
Nephelium meliferum: like a ramboutan but a little bit more sweet and juicy
Etlingera eliator: a ginger candie good to complete salad and carry

Growing beaumont, and it has already flowered and fruited at about 7 or 8 feet. Not a problem keeping the tree manageable with annual pruning.

Etlingera elatior fruit cannot be eaten.The pods look like cardamomum on the inside with many seeds, which have a strong cardamomum like flavour.
