Sure, but I would like to give it a couple weeks to recuperate.  I dug it up today and stuck it in a pot so it's had a bit of a root pruning.

Too bad you're not in Florida.  I have one I need to dig up.

Hi Oolie,

I just called Fruitscapes.  He says he just grafted about 20 "Tikal" plants so he should have some available mid-May (once he confirms that they have taken).  Now I just need to find "Canul".....

Thanks for the referrals everyone.  I really appreciate it :-)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: How to store papaya seeds

Hi Alex,

I just clean them, dry them out and store at room temp.  There may be other methods, but this one has worked for me.

Hope all is well with you.

Best regards,
Scott

I have a Mysore.  It's been in the ground for 2 years.  No fruit production, it's invasive, and has some really nasty thorns.  It's coming out if no fruit this year.

It won't help you immediately, but the plants are pretty easy to grow here.  And they are perennial which is nice.  Mine are coming up on 3 years, and doing just fine.

Super!  Thank you so much.  I'll add a calender reminder for myself in October.

Any chance you'll be offering seeds?  I would very much like to have this plant.

I'm seeing 50s and 60s as low temps for first part of January - and only scattered.  No prolonged periods.  I'm certainly not opposed to some additional cold temps, but I would very much like to keep the mango blooms I've got going now - few as they may be.

I've had mine in the ground for a little over a year in east Miramar.  It's definitely not a fast grower, but it's probably pushing 2 - 2.5 feet now.  It's in full sun.  I water and fertilize it often and it seems to respond well.  I'd estimate that I've had 2-3 inches of new growth this year, and leaf size has increased pretty dramatically.  It's definitely growing faster than my glacially slow pitangatuba - and certainly faster than any of my garcinias.  But it is certainly no speed demon.  I'm hoping for fruit within my lifetime :-)

I think I'm seeing the beginning of flower spikes on Sienta Lone, Arka Puneet and Neelkiran.  YAY!!!

Adding Corn, Katar Rum Rung and possibly USDA Himsagar.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Best canistel variety for Florida
« on: December 13, 2019, 04:34:01 PM »
Fairchild-2 or a Ross sapote


Have you seen this list?  https://www.growables.org/information/TropicalFruit/canistelvarieties.htm

I have Ross Sapote and Oro planted in Hawaii.  Oro not big enough to fruit yet.  Love this fruit-the Ross is quite good when allowed to get extremely ripe.

Thanks a lot.  Yes, the list is one of the reasons I'm asking:  They list the Fairchild varieties as "not recommended" but I keep hearing really good things about them, so I'm curious what people here are growing and happy with.  I also know absolutely nothing about canistel - other than the fact that I like it a lot :-) so recommendations are definitely welcome.  Have you had Oro?  What did you think of it?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fruiting Durian in Florida?
« on: December 13, 2019, 04:28:16 PM »
Many thanks, Shot.  I'd been using phosphate spray and drench as well but stopped because the leaves were clean.  Suddenly, they weren't :-(  You are probably correct about letting them dry.  I must admit I've been lazy about watering. 

I applied Agri-Fos last night and removed all the infected leaves.  They got drenched this morning by that downpour, so they are good for the moment (fingers crossed).  There's lot of new leaf growth, so I'm hopeful.  Kinabulensis and graveolens look the cleanest.  Kutajensis and zibithinus have really taken a beating.

Please keep in touch, if you don't mind.  I'd love to compare notes as the trees get older.  Are you planning to trellis yours?

Regards,
Scott

Shot,

I left you a message on the other thread but just in case you don't see it:  I'm wondering if you are having any problems with leaf anthracnose and if so what you are doing to combat it.  4 years for durian is super impressive.

Shot,

you're just "up the street" from me.  Are you experiencing any issues with leaf anthracnose?  If so, what are you using?

Mike T, are you using a fungicide?  My plants often succumb this time of year to what appears to be leaf anthracnose.  I've tried Bayer Advanced and copper but it doesn't seem to make much difference.  New leaves are still infected, and young shoots still die off.  If it wasn't for the anthracnose, I think the plants would actually be OK.

D.kinabulensis might not be the selection of choice for the Durio connoisseur.

I completely agree :-)  But if the choice is fresh kinabulensis vs. some hideous frozen Mong Thong it may be an easier choice to make.  Anyway, we'll see what happens.  I'd love to fruit durian here, but 8 years worth of failed trials doesn't leave me very hopeful.
