Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Avocado 24/7 Thread
« Last post by LEOOEL on Today at 01:26:28 AM »
Congrats to ‘Spaugh’ on your achieving ‘Avocado 24/7.’ And, for leading the way.

 ‘Avocado 24/7’ will also happen in Florida in one or two ways, IMO:

(1) Naturally; by Cultivar Propagation; seedling; Or, it may never happen naturally. And,

(2) Artificially; Avocado genome manipulation (via CRISPR Technology); timeframe of less than 14 years; 7 (years) X 2 = 14 years; Reliable Experts believe AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) will arrive in 7 years. Plus, a guesstimate of 7 more years to Master and analyze ALL the Avocado Cultivars Genomes on the Planet. It’s all just Data. It’s all really very simple for an AGI.

Ive achieved avo 24/7 here in CA.  Havent bought any for over a year. 

Sir Prize is in season now.  This is maybe my favorite avocado. 

Just wanted to bump and see if anyone has this kasturi x Haden hybrid scions to offer to buy.

Last I heard, they were planning on backcrossing these hybrids with M. indica.

you can place a container with sweet smelling liquid, and if possible pheromone (of species identified), with a funnel going in, much like a white fly trap but larger. 

I used before with molasses, water, and Jurinsee (thai language) and have seen if you want to read about Jurinsee in English can look up Bokashi fertilizer.

I read the link it would interesting to have both duke and aravapia fruit side by side to compare taste as far as the duke it sounds like it ripens too fast within 72 hours after being picked so great for home owner but not practical as a commercial still looking for details for example when is fruit ready to pick in phoenix, southern cal ? Northern cali?

They look like Cuban May Beetles.not sure how helpful this is, but if you have a pool in your back yard with lights, leave them on over night and turn off surrounding porch/flood lights. By morning you'll have several hundred floating in your pool and the local grackles will have a fine buffet.

Not sure if this post is really all that helpful...

@Orkine,ies i will build this and put it to the test and if it will be a failure i will post it like i did posted a week ago somme failed experiment with my homemade seedling pots that killed most of my pecan trees.Im bad with pot coultures but with condensation i have big experience as i have build a cold water aquarium thats like an open fridge chilled by a titanium condeser(titanium because its saltwater) through an air conditioned.And off course ,the aquarium has double walls of glass and its thermo insulated.
@Nate the great, the discussion finally led you to my words and because of that i will reward you with an advice on why your big glass wall gets condensation on it.Its because the glass has somme thermal transfer power and if you keep the window open while its cold outside,then the glass on the interior gets cold and it gets condensation.Or in case you have air condioner and inside the house its cold,the interior window gets cold and if you open the window,the exterior hot air that enters your house will condensate on your window.

My name is Abe, I take people fishing for a living. I love my wife, my dog, my family, and fishing in that order, and I love fishing for tropical fruit. I dream about planting and destroying my garden all day and part of the night. I love tropical fruit, rare or not so rare. I live in Biscayne Park, Florida. My homie Adam is on the forum and he started my obsession just over 3 years ago. He gave me most of what I have:

cedar bay cherry
lucs garcinia,
improved lemon drop
2 Kona sugarloaf pinnapple's
Machete ice cream bean
Seedling jack x chempedak from han sen
euginia calycina "nelita"
Ruby red guava
Lancitella mango
Key west “pantin” mamey sapote
Magana mamey sapote
Bears lemon
Navel orange “Valencia “

NOTE: None of my trees are taller than 6 feet...YET.

Two fruits to ID from my last trip :

It was on the ground, maybe since several months. Tried to spot the tree but no success. It was on a steep slope, so fruit have probably rolled some distance. I'm thinking about a Duguetia, maybe D. surinamensis ?
Seeds inside were all rotten.

No idea of Genus. Apocynaceae ?
The transparent flesh surrounding the seeds is delicious !

Thank you for the input Mangifera08, no one here in Guiana, even botanists and natives seems to know this fruit. I will try to explore the Plinia eventuality.
