We had a terrific Kutejensis at the agro park in Tenom, really one of the best fruits of our trip there.  However, this was in August, so donít know if that tree would have fruit now.  Also the tree is in an area outside of the public gardens but you can get someone to take you there.

ManVFruit,

NDM is a great variety to grow from seed.

Brad and I have actually come up with a better way to grow out Polyembryonic seedlings compared to what I recommended about a year ago. Last year, I recommended that we plant Polyembryonic seeds and simply let all the seedlings grow but in our field plantings, we noticed that the seedlings started pushing each other aside, causing them to grow slanted to one side.

Brad came up with the idea to graft one of the seedlings onto another seedling so that we can have a single trunk with two seedling varieties coming out of it. In hindsight, this should have clearly been foreseeable but we have so many different projects we are working on that itís hard to put too much thought into any one project.

Hi Mike, hope everything well. I was wondering if you ever tried the Pine Island Jackfruits you were selling (http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=13128.msg166478#msg166478and) and could comment on how you like them, and which you liked best.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango ID please ?
« Last post by AggrOnline on Today at 08:11:38 PM »
I purchased two vareities of mango from a nursery in Florida, Orange Sherbat and Pina Colada, they arrived couple of days ago with two tags on one tree and none on the other, I have no idea which is which and I am still waiting to hear back from the nursery to confirm the trees, any one here can ID them by leaves ?

I got this pomegranate cutting with 3 prongs that subsequently shot 2 stems of growth from each prong, giving me 6 stems. I want a single-trunk tree, but leaving just one whispy stem at this point seems weird. Though it is protected as it is currently indoors safe from outside heat and wind.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: can pluots pollinate other pluots?
« Last post by Mango Stein on Today at 08:00:16 PM »
To answer original poster, no, pluots cannot pollinate other pluots, as pollination is something done by insects and wind.
If you meant cross-pollination, then yes, pluots can do this to each other, and with four I don't think there will be an issue of incompatible pollen.

@Samu
Spicezee is not a pluot, it is a nectaplum (hybrid) which has 87% peach/nectarine in its pedigree and only 13% plum.

What variety is it? Usually my Kimbrough is like that, bigger than owari and not as sweet , but this year my owari is bigger and sweeter and ripened quicker than kimbrough. My kimbrough also gets more shade than my owari. Different factors, different weather in different years, different varieties, etc.
