My cinnamon tree is loaded with fruit this year, I heard you can eat the flesh so I tried it and it has a pleasant slight cinnamon taste to them.

Just bought a cloning machine and i was curious what trees people have tried to root cuttings with and had success. Figured i would dedicate a thread to this interesting topic.

I will try rooting every tree i have and see my chances, then report back on my success.

Also bought a tissue culture kit so i'll see what i can tissue culture as well.

This should be fun.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / First sprout of Raulís Ilama seeds

One of the white ilama seeds from Raul sprouted, so stoked. Planted around mid August. The one to sprout was soaked in a super boogie brew compost for about a week and planted in ocean forest/happy frog potting soil. I soak them once every week or two for the first couple months then I keep moist for a couple weeks following a dry week, trying to simulate the natural rainy season as far as water needs. Also only used rain water.

Hope this helps.

If you got the seeds from me they are originally from highlands Guatemala, so a sub tropical, and not surprising it survived. They have a wide range, so there are some that are more tropical. So all depends where you sourced them?
Yes seeds were from you, that's great they were more cold tolerant, their loving the florida climate   8)

Both of mine were out almost all winter except for one night I brought it in my patio so no frost fell on them. Both are almost 4 years old but one grew faster than the other, the big one had a little leaf burn but protected from wind and frost it stood 32f and was fine, the smaller one in the same conditions died back but came back just recently from the bottom of the stem.

Itís one of those plants you really never want to put threw a test like that for the chance they might not come back but since they stood 39f last year unprotected And were completely fine I figured I would push the limit a bit.

I found Marang rather easy to grow once germinated in spring or summer, if germinated in fall or winter you probably don't have a chance. Mine is taking off like a weed, almost 4 years old about 5 feet, In a root pruning pot but my other one in a regular pot is doing just as good

Should add that i do bring it in the garage when it gets below 38F but i bring it back out the next day unless it too is below 38F which is rare.

What variety of black surinam?
zills black surinam

Forgot I germinated a camu camu seedling in a bag with a moist paper towel, 6 months later and being in part sun for a few hours a day it was completely dried, yet when I closely looked at the tip it was still slightly green, so after planting it and giving it some TLC it is actually growing again

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Black and red Surinam cherry
« on: May 06, 2018, 05:54:55 PM »
First fruiting of my black Surinam, itís about 4 years old. Second fruit on my red Surinam thatís about 5 years old. The black are by far much sweeter. My red had bitter cherries when it first produced but now they are much sweeter yet still not as sweet as the black.

root pruning pots are good, they do work. I was talking more about letting the roots grow through the pots and still develop so when you do eventually transplant you have a nice 6-10 ft roots that are easily picked up and put into larger pots. Soursop are resilient plants but i have also done this technique with many different family such as Artocarpus, Pouteria, Eugenia, plinia, annonas, garcinias, and various other. I will say there are fast growing ones such as java almond and Jamaican cherry that don't do well when kept in small pots for too long in my experience but for the most part it works. I have seen a 7 foot kepel in 3 gallons of soil so miracles can happen.
