Oh, I should've grabbed some. The birds were loving it in the branches.
Thanks,

And are they edible?
I didn't dare try, Lol.

Looks very, very much like cherries.
Maybe they're too sour?

Thanks guys. I'll water more and add more fertilizer.

Are flat and/or skinny branches indicative of a lack of water? or something else?
Thanks,

So is that thing "active", and containing eggs, or have all the eggs hatched and gone and now it's just a empty housing?

I've seen some on the branches of trees, this specific one is on my ladder. Very hard to the touch, hard to scrape off, like it's glued on with Gorilla Glue, Lol.
Thanks,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Dragon fruit plant in pot
« on: June 06, 2019, 06:04:15 PM »
I followed the excellent advice from OP to make mine. DF are growing fine, except that they appear flat and a little bit wrinkly at some areas. What can I do to make them fill out more?
Thanks so much for this thread!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado flowering too much in a pot.

Should I remove most, or all, of them? I'm kinda tempted to get a couple fruits from the tree this year.
Thanks,

Gotta keep this from the wife, though.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pouteria spp. Which is which?
« on: March 07, 2019, 09:06:04 PM »
I have 2 Pouterias here.
1 is P. viridis (Green Sapote), and the other is P. campechiana (Canistel).
Can someone help identify which is which?
Plant B has leaves that are soft to the touch, almost "velvety".
Plant A is just smooth, shiny, and "harder" to the touch.

Thanks,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Would you accept a tree in this condition?
« on: February 11, 2019, 04:01:26 PM »
Seller informed me that wound would heal up "automatically" and be no problem. When I told him I wanted a replacement, he immediately said he'd take it back and replace it, so good on him.

Will you have to pay for shipping?
Do they have a "store" for you to go in and look at their inventory?

I can recommend Hana Fuyu, heavy bearer, sweet, no need pollinator.






Do you leave your tree in the pot and got fruits?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Atemoya tree from Greenmart nursery
« on: January 22, 2019, 04:30:29 PM »
Greenmart nursery? Where is this nursery? I used to buy a bunch of plants from a nursery of the same name, in the city of Orange. That place closed down 2 years ago. I'm wondering if they moved to San Diego or just a name coincidence?

They're looking great, Brad!
Do you have a commercial nursery?
Those that you're keeping for your orchard, will they be planted in the ground?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Dragon fruit training question.
« on: December 28, 2018, 12:21:41 PM »
I put a cutting of Physical Graffiti  in a nursery pot a couple months ago, it now has 2 lateral branches, so it looks like a "T", the vertical part is only about 10" tall.
I notice that the laterals are getting longer, but the vertical is not getting that much taller. I'd like to get vertical growth so I can tie it to the support trellis. I guess I can bend the laterals upward, gradually, so they don't break off. Any suggestions?
Thanks,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Cherry of the Rio Grande
« on: December 28, 2018, 12:16:37 PM »
I've had mine for over 5 years, first in the ground for 2 years, nothing was happening. I then put it in a wine barrel container, that's the last 3 years, put out more branches, healthy looking leaves, not a single flower or fruit. It has been mostly in partial sun. I must say that neither cold (30 F) nor hot (105 F) bothers it. I'm planning on moving it into full sun in the spring, hopefully I"ll get it to fruit.

Thanks ricshaw,

Didn't know the skin was edible. So this looks like a new cultivar. Google knows nothing about it, Lol.

ONLY THE MEXICAN VARIETIES!!

Thanks!
