Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Re: Thong Dee pomelo seeds

I did plant some pomelo seeds before and now get nice tasting fruits on the tree. It took my tree about 6-7 yrs for fruit. Tree is about 15 ft tall now so I cut it back each year to 12 ft each year. My seedling pomelo tastes much sweeter than the original fruit I took the seeds from.

If you graft loquats to a seedling, you will get fruits in 1-2yrs. I have flowers now on my grafted budwoods from early 2019. Since its a nice big scion wood (3/4"diameter) grafted on a large seedling plant, I will let it go to fruit so I can taste it in spring time. I have many loquat trees and the fruits are very tasty.

Cindy, let me know when you get the grafting down and I will send you some different varieties of loquats (orange flesh & white flesh).

Thank you all for the additional information on this variety.
My FD had many fruits this year, but each fruit only had 5-10 seeds, and most were not fully formed. Previous years it had 10-25 seeds in each fruit, nice and plump seeds.

Does anyone have experience with this Hiryu FD ?
It is suppose to be very similar to the Flying Dragon, but the fruit looks a little different and the branches are not as curved.
I grafted some to my FD and wanted to know if there was anything useful with using this one as a rootstock.

Thanks Carlos. Yes it does eventually turn to green as the branch grows more.

Carlos, since you are the expert avocado grower, I have another question for you on different leaf colors of avocados.
Have you seen varieties with leaf color that is orange/red like this one. This is a seedling Hawaiian from a fruit I purchased over 15 yrs ago while on vacation. The fruit was different since the outside skin of the avocado was gold/yellow. You can see the 2 fruits next to the yellow papaya I purchased. The seedling has normal green fruit but some of the branches has this interesting orange/red color leaves.

Interesting info on the leaf disease. I don't think this seedling has a disease. Will show more photos as the seedling grows if it keeps the variegation. I also noticed that this seedling has a slight red stem while the other one is normal dark color. Planted both seeds at the same time.

Has anyone grown an avocado seedling with variegated leaves ?

This one just grew out from an unknown seedling.

It was suppose to be a red fruited avocado. I didn't think the leaves would have this color. The one next to it is from same source and the leaves are normal green color.

Brian, I grafted that one as well. It tasted just as you described it and so I top worked my tree a while ago. It was a disappointment to wait for the branches to fruit and finding out it was not that good tasting.

Thanks for the info CA Hockey, I will need to go there and pick up a few trees. Looking forward to tasting the fruits.

Yes, but I don't think the CCPP budwood is a Daisy SL, it is the Daisy (VI-382).

CA Hockey, where did you find the Daisy SL ?

That's interesting that my large Lychee tree which grows taller than my roof had tons of fruit this year but only on the south side and west side of the tree. Hardly any on the north and east side of my 18 ft tall tree.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Help ID Satsuma mandarin variety
« on: November 06, 2019, 08:57:53 AM »
I have a few kishu trees with fruit now, they are smaller fruits.
These are maybe 1.5x the size (ranges from 1-1/2" to 2" diameter). Still taste good but not as sweet as kishu.
I will take a photo of the kishu fruit next to this one for comparison. This fruit may normally be slightly larger but due to the big cluster it might have smaller t than normal fruit. This is the first year the branch had any fruits so I didn't notice it until I looked up into the tree.
Somehow I had mislabeled this one as Kiyomi Tangor which is a big fruit, size of an orange.

Just wondering if anyone else had a cluster of fruits on one branch that has so many fruits ( total of 24).
This is a Satsuma scion branch that is about 2 years old on a grapefruit tree.

The fruits on this branch is smaller than normal but the taste is still good. I got the scion from UCR budwood but lost the tag. Can anyone help identify this Satsuma ?

I had a similar issue with oroblanco branch that had 110 fruits (normal size) on one large branch, it ended up braking off just as the fruits were yellow and almost ripe.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 20 year old mango tree removal
« on: November 01, 2019, 02:39:56 AM »
I dug up an old mango (about 10+yr old) and transplanted to another yard same day. It died in about 6 months, did not have much roots except for a few large roots that I had to cut off to dig a 3 ft diameter root ball. I have done similar transplant on persimmon, aprium, loquat, citrus trees planted in-ground and transferred into large pots/containers and they did survive (also all about 10 yrs old). My mango tree did not have much smaller roots so that may be the reason it didn't make it. I did trim back all the branches on the mango trees and left only minimum green branches on it after the transplanting.

Thank you for the healthy cuttings. The fruit tastes very sweet, and it has no sour taste like most passion fruits I have eaten. Very different taste, never had one like these. I would say it's the best tasting passion fruit that I have had.
