Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Avocado tree getting too much water??
« on: June 18, 2018, 06:00:45 PM »
I think I got super lucky.
My Holiday got overwatered and the mature leaves browned and I had to cut off about 8 inches of dead wood from the top of my tree.
I have watered it VERY lightly only once since this happened a couple weeks ago and it seems to be doing better. I am seeing new growth on the branches but this tree seems to be recovering.
Don't give up unless you have the money to spare on a new tree (I'm to cheap!) you never know what they can do!

A lot of people work for the government--including the military, the FBI, local law enforcement, fire rescue and emergency services, etc., etc.  I would imagine their incompetence, irresponsibility, and dishonesty when found reflect the general population.
Not to derail the conversation further but this is very true. We are just in the public eye more so than private organizations so it's noticed more frequently. Lazy, ignorant people will always be there. Regardless of who they represent.

-And I get paid less than in a private organization :(

I had Simon send me cuttings via Priority Mail, guess what I got empty box with tape on it. I do know Simon did not send me empty box for sure. LOL

Totally irresponsible, unaccountable worthless bunch of asshats.  If I could count on one hand all the problems I've had with the USPS.  I've had important Humana Pharmacy meds get side tracked to other states for 3 weeks, a box of California avocados were sent via New Jersery before Xmas during a hard freeze,  received other's mail and had mine lost resulting in crap like a delinquent insurance payment...I could go on and on.  They just don't care.  Like all govt. employees ya can't fire the bastards!
I feel attacked. Lol. I do IT for department of transportation.

Some survived, I've never actually had a pluot 'til today. They were soft, and I don't know the variety.
They're good, not great. Am I not letting them ripen enough?

Which variety is this? Grafted or seedling?

How is the taste compared to other eugenias? And how long to produce from seed?

My persimmons pushed heavily through spring and are slowing down now as fruit has set.
I have Hachiya and Fuyu in California, 9B. I wouldn't expect yours to grow much until next spring, but that's just my experience. I've only been watching these trees for two seasons though. They are already established and ~25ft tall.

Hey all, I am still looking for these plants. I think I am set as far as mangos go though.

I'm 100% sure My holiday was over watered. It was doing fantastic until my wife started watering in the mornings as we hit 100 degree temps.
Hass, and lamb-hass are still doing good and I will be keeping a closer eye on the watering they receive. I'm going to drill some more holes in to my pot for the Holiday when I'm off work tonight, I believe the holes may be a bit inadequate as I am growing some raspberries in an identical pot (Though smaller) that is retaining a lot of water too.

I'll be stopping by the Marysville Farmers market this Sunday, I'll see what kind of avocados they have and let you know. We usually get several while we are there.

Have you had any success rejuvenating your avocados?
I'm contemplating removing my holiday from its pot and letting the root ball dry out a bit. I've read that this has had some success in the past for people.

My gardens getting chewed up too. Birds, bugs, some thing eating my pepper plant tops. The whole shebang. Neem and peppermint oil aren't cutting it. :(

Your trees look fantastic!
My Holiday seems to be suffering from root rot :( The wife got a little water happy...
Hass and lamb-hass are doing great, as was the holiday before It turned all brown and the top withered up. Looks like it may be a goner.

Can always come up here... 25$ and look way better than the manilla seedling I bought in socal. Currently growing a few from seed as its the wife's favourite mango and we buy cases at Asian market. I'm 1 hour north of sacramento.

Check around a bit... my home Depot just got a shipment of manilla mango's and avocados. I'm 3 hours north

Do you have a good supply? I really shouldn't spend any more money on plants until my next paycheck or wife may kill me ;)

Hey everyone.
I am looking to experiment with some plants and am looking to get some seeds or cuttings of many varieties.
I am looking for :
-Mango seeds. I have manilla and tommy (I believe) germinating now.
-Miracle fruit
-Barbados Cherry
-Honey berry
-Lilikoi Passion fruit
Any recommendations on small fruits that do well in pots?

Please let me know if you have any of these and are willing to share. Thanks!

It's in the ground, I believe it's the second on third year producing. I think it was just a freak wind incident. I've only dropped one since that day. Last year I had about a dozen fruits on it, none dropped.

I am also interested in seeds for mangos that will grow well in nor california. 9b. I'm currently germinating some manilla and have one 3 ft tree.
Please let me know if you have any as well!! :)

I want some Eugenia seeds.
I have begun to just growing  tropical fruit and do not have Eugenia which I can trade.
Please sell following seeds

I've heard wurtz grows very wide and fruit isn't all that great.

I live just north of sacramento and grew up in the auburn/lincoln area. Tons of citrus! seems to do just fine out here with some love when they're young.
I live now in suburbia, feather river to the east, houses to north and west and sierra gold nursery / orchards to my south. stone fruits and nuts are the most common but theres very large citrus here doing great, as well!
