Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: will rats eat coconut cream?
« on: June 21, 2019, 01:05:46 AM »
Hi,
I read that squirrels don't like coconut cream mango. We don't have
squirrels here but we have big rats. Does anyone know that rats won't touch
coconut cream.  I might get a tree in the future. Thanks

The squirrels at my in-laws house love Coconut Cream mangos.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Can anyone ID these trees?
« on: May 09, 2019, 11:18:34 PM »
thanks for the longan ID, now that I know what it is I can try to figure out how to get it to flower. I was most curious about that one and the carrot wood, I think it might be an ackee but the leaves aren't as shiny? They look really similar so I'm not sure, I'll just leave them alone for a while.

2 and 3 are mysteries, my guess for 0 is culantro but I'm not sure

0 is definitely not culantro. Looks nothing like it.
1 is carrotwood, as Cookie Monster said. Destroy it. It's an annoying invasive.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: red mombin not leafing out
« on: May 09, 2019, 11:11:50 PM »
These are very young, only 1/2 full. Once ripe and full they are about twice. I'll get back with a picture when they are ready.

Awesome! The purple mombin is one of my favorite fruit. I'd be interested in buying some cuttings in the future if you're willing to sell.

I look forward to seeing the pic of the full sized fruit.

I sent TFSO a private message last week. No response yet.

BTW, I recently took a picture of a Red Mombin variety of exceptional size, about twice as big as the average fruit. It also has an nipple shaped appendage. Jocote de pezůn.



Those look about the average size to me. Do they get much larger than that? Any pics of the fully ripe fruit?

Wish someone would start doing this for tropical and subtropical fruit trees.

That would be great if it was done for tropical and subtropicals. It would probably stop some people in California from renaming everything.

TFSO took the maney and disappeared A cheater from Thailand. His webite is fake must be closed soon

Before we start jumping to conclusions, let's give the seller a few more days to respond.

Went to Excalibur for a macadamia nut and ended up with this too as an impulse buy, anyone have the story behind this? Supposedly itís new red variety, nursery lady told me itís darker red and sweeter than Excalibur red.

-Joep450

It's the closest to red that I've actually seen myself. It's also one of the best tasting jackfruit that I've ever had.

10
I ordered seeds as well, then I noticed both websites appear to be the same.

If we can't get this cleared up soon, I will have to delete all of both accounts posts.

Update

Please stop bumping your threads unnecessarily just to say you still have some for sale, etc. Post once, then only reply to actual comments. Or if you've actually changed something such as reducing the price, then post an update.

12
Why does your website look exactly the same as forum member TFSO?

13
TFSO,

Why does your website look exactly the same as the forum user Borne-indo? What is the deal with that?

I haven't seen any negative comments about India on this forum.  I think most people in this modern era, even most Americans, respect and appreciate your culture.  We have millions of Americans who are from India or their parents were--extremely intelligent and industrious citizens.  (It was the British empire that colonized your country, disrespected and exploited your people, and stole your wealth and resources.)

Let's focus on  FRUIT TALKS and take our political views outside this forum. PLEASE!!!

Agreed. I locked this post as well. I will delete it once I think the two other posters have had an opportunity to read it.

I deleted the post that had negatives comments about India. Let's not get into the negatives comments about the British Empire now either. Let's just keep discussions plant related.

I placed an order through your app for soursop seeds. Can you get seeds from different soursop cultivars or is it only one that your are able to get the seeds from?

17
Oh in light of accusations against member Tropical I will provide post office copies of all seeds sent.
We guarantee our honestly and that all seeds order be sent

thank you

Do you ship to Trinidad & Tobago?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted: Soursop seedlings
« on: April 26, 2019, 04:42:57 PM »
I am looking for some soursop seedlings to use as rootstock for grafting. If anyone has any available, please let me know.

Thanks!

That looks like the first graft on the rootstock might not have taken so they regrafted on the new growth.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: USDA Permit Question
« on: April 18, 2019, 05:25:47 PM »
Yes, I had that exact thing happen. My USDA "guy" even called me to explain it! He was actually quite helpful, and his recommendation was to decide what I wanted to bring in first, then apply for the permit specifically for those things.
I wound up not getting the permit since I didn't have specific plants in mind at that time.  I think the new stuff went into effect last spring.

Carolyn

Thanks for the response. Glad to know it's just not someone denying mine due to laziness or ignorance. I've had my permits since 2008 but I let them lapse last year. I wonder if I would have been grandfathered in if I renewed on time last year.

I will probably hardly ever use this permit because I mostly import seeds and just use the small lot of seed permit for that.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / USDA Permit Question
« on: April 18, 2019, 01:26:16 PM »
I am in the process of renewing my USDA permit for the importation of plant material (not small lot of seed), and they now want me to list every scientific name that I may be importing. In the past I was able to have a blanket permit for all admissible nursery stock.

Has anyone else had this issue?


Here is the message the USDA sent me:


"Your application cannot be processed as presented. Applications require scientific names of the material intended to import. "Admissible nursery stock of seed and other plant material not subject to postentry quarantine or prohibited from various approved countries in accordance with 7 CFR 319.37" is not an acceptable scientific name."

From a friends tree. His tree is large with nice size fruit

I'm looking for a couple of jackfruit trees to add to my collection. I have the NS-1, Amber, Lemon Crunch and one unknown. Hopefully Harry or one of you other experts can guide me as to what else to add. My grafted Amber is in the ground, 3 years old and only 3' tall with 4 fruit on it. I'd like the tree to be at least 3 years old or older and I can pick it up.

Thanks

Ray

Where did you get a grafted Amber from?

I think your friends tree is most likely a seedling. So you may have a grafted Amber seedling and not a grafted Amber.

I apologize if I posted this travel announcement in wrong place. I did research first (with searching the forum) and it seemed to more appropriate here than the forum selling fruits location.

Contact for questions is in the posting and detailed trip brochure is available. To reply to posted comments, the price per person in double occupancy is $1,800 USD (without airfare). Good comment re importance of discussions with local farmers which is usually fun and educational. Not only may we visit small farms along the routes, we will interact with growers at local farmer's markets and roadside stands. The goal is to learn and for participants to ask questions of interest.  Unfortunately the mentioned Finca De Isla is too far off the route as it sounds great. Glad to hear crops are looking good.

For details and trip brochure, email info@explorationsinc.com. Tour may be viewed online at https://www.explorationsinc.com/costa-rica-fruit-tour.html

This section is fine for this post. I think that the buy sell trade section is more for tangible products not trips such as this one.
