Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Leo Hybrid #3
« on: April 20, 2020, 05:26:46 PM »
Hey Simon or Brad,

I got this hybrid of Leo's a few years ago, does it look familiar? Do you have a clue as to which one it is? It's a bit sunburned and I just picked it today as it was starting to split from all the rain.

Thanks,

Mark


Hey Mark, Leo asked if you have a picture of the inside of the fruit? He doesnít recall what variety it is by the looks of the outside.

Simon
Hey Simon, here is the inside of the fruit.

I grafted one 3 years ago onto Imbe (G.Livingstonei) and it is over 7 feet tall here in Southern San Diego.

Hey Mark,

I donít recognize that fruit. I wonder if that could be Leo Hybrid #2? I donít recall ever sampling his #2 Hybrid so Iím not positive.

Simon
It has an amazing taste and very few seeds. I couldn't measure the brix, but it is pretty sweet.

Is Luc's Mexican Garcinia more cold hardy than Imbe?  How about compared to other tropicals?
Imbe is more cold tolerant, my Imbe leaves never seem to be affected by the cold, but the Luc's leaves bend and bit on newer leaves.

Shouldn't your Fortunata be  called "Fortuna", if it came from Rudy?

I really like the Daily 11, it's no "Jan Boyce", but with some salt or in a quesadilla it's fine.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Ross Sapote grafted to Chico Sapote?
« on: March 16, 2020, 10:04:14 PM »
Has anyone had success grafting the Ross to the Chico? I have plenty of Chico seedlings but would rather have Ross. I know Canistel would accept Ross.

Thanks

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Maprang in ground zone 10A?
« on: March 14, 2020, 08:43:45 PM »
I really doubt it, my Mamey in coastal southern California fruits, but my Maprang just doesn't like the long cold winters. No frost but too much time under 50.

Is the "Ong Ruby" Atemoya also 47-18?
Geffner X red custard apple?

How does the "Ong Ruby" Atemoya taste?
I haven't tasted the Ruby, but it is white inside.

11
I went to Ong's Nursery today to drop off a big stalk of Vietnamese bananas and was surprised at some real nice trees and fruit he's got going. He calls the red atemoya. "Ong Ruby" Atemoya.

I've picked hundreds of African Prides at a friends farm, we get them when they have a bit of yellow, and have a sticky feel to the skin.

Ong Nursery sells the 4 season longan. I have one growing in my yard and it has fruit now.

Here is a photo of the "Cumbe" cherimoya at a market in Arequipa, Peru a few years ago. I have a few seedlings going, but no fruit yet. Does anyone have photos of their "Cumbes"?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Paul Thomson Mango
« on: September 27, 2019, 02:46:39 PM »
So this one isn't "Edgehill"?  I found one location that supposedly has it, but haven't checked it out yet.
There are about 15 different trees left on the property and when the property was developed, I don't think they had any idea which mangoes to keep. He may have named this one, and I haven't had the real "Thomson" in years so I'm not sure which one I grafted.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sea Grape
« on: September 26, 2019, 10:36:04 PM »
Does anyone have any experience growing Seagrape in California? I had them in Hawaii and this one has been outside and just flowered for the first time. Any chance of fruit?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Paul Thomson Mango
« on: September 26, 2019, 10:35:12 PM »
I just harvested one of the Paul Thomson's mangoes that I grafted a few years ago, it is from his old place in Vista, it is one of the favorites of the gardeners that now work there. It is very sweet with a bit of piney flavor. Not sure of the name since most info is gone from the old orchard.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is pitomba worth growing for the fruits?
« on: September 26, 2019, 12:30:02 AM »
I have three different seedlings that fruit and one is ok, the others are just not that great. Go for a Cherry of the Rio grande instead. I'm actually taking out my 10 foot tree because I need more sun for my Sapodillas.Plus the Pitomba needs too much water to fruit for us in the desert of San Diego.


22
Alano is too sweet for me, but it is my most productive. i actually like Makok the best, it is more subtle tasting.

Hey Patrick,

I have one that produces here. The tag says it is "Katherine Anderson hybrid" It tastes ok, but it does have to be really ripe to taste good.

Hi Mark,

Is that the one I brought you one time?  I think Catherine (and the rest of us) never figured out what species that one is.  We suspected it's a hybrid of goumi and something else.



My favorite Elaeagnus is autumn olive -- they're tiny but really tasty.

Hi Barath,

Yes that is the one. I forgot who gave it to me. It is now 9 feet tall.

Thanks

24
Seven feet sounds like the largest one I know of in SoCal. So hopefully it will start fruiting in 2-3 years?  Mark, does it grow in flushes or is it always growing on some part of the tree like mine does?

Bill
Bill it puts out new growth all year round, we don't get too cold so I'm always looking for buds, maybe a year or two.
