Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: winter protection for Feijoas
« on: November 13, 2019, 06:04:29 PM »
You want bees to polinate it.
Normally feijoas are polinated by birds thats why you can eat the petals of the flowers.Birds come to eat the petals and they polinate the flowers.
Somme people think the edible petals are better than the fruit and in case you dont get fruit iet,try the petals.

For polination you need another variety or a feijoa grown from seeds.The otther variety can be self polinating like Gemini wich makes small fruit but its regarded as the only true self polinated feijoa here.

Also in the first year i keep my feijoas in the greenhouse in winter because i want them to grow faster but they are cold hardy.

Thanks for the info!

Only a few of them are partially self fertile. All benefit from having a second plant as pollinator to get a bigger fruit set - or any fruit set at all. Hukvaldy and Unique are partly self fertile.

Does the 2nd plant have to be a different variety? And ants can do the job? I don't see much flying insects in my yard, just lots of ants.

I have one feijoa tree that is more than 20 years old that always flowered and fruited without any other feijoa plant in the area. So my guess is that they are selfertile, or at least the variety i have.

What variety do you have?

50's would be like a vacation in the Caribbean to a Feijoa in the Fall/Winter. They are very hardy...I suspect that even for seedlings. No protection necessary

Chris,

Do you need 2 for pollination? I only have 1, got a fair amount of flowers, but no fruits.
Thanks,
Trung

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Should I top off my Cherimoya tree?
« on: October 09, 2019, 11:59:15 AM »
Guys,
Please advise on this one. It's only barely 2 feet tall, the lateral branches were like 3 feet long, so I cut them back stripped the top few leaves. Is that enough pruning? Should I cut off more branches, make them shorter?
Thanks,

I'm interested. How do I join? You'll be 16 hours ahead, so I may not be able to participate much, but will try.
Thanks,

Japanese maple cottony scale or white bugs are always insufficient fresh air and high humidity conditions....
to get rid of them: use pesticide or egg yolk methode.

Egg yolk? Please elaborate.
Thanks,

I've tried spraying them off with the water hose, but they always return.
What can I do next to permanently kill them?
Thanks,

NewGen, do you know the variety name of the tree? Leaves don't look like normal Java Plum (Jamun) or wrong photo? The leaves at the top right corner do look like Jamun leaves.

Thera,
The leaves on the upper right is Michelia champaca.
This is my only Java plum, so I  don't have any other reference.
Thanks,

Trung

Do u know when it will fruit?

I wish I knew, Lol. I've been told that it needs to go into a bigger pot to have a chance at fruiting. I have many other things going on that i don't have time to do it.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Chocolate Sapote zone 9
« on: July 30, 2019, 05:25:27 PM »
Assuming you are referring to Diospyros nigra, the black sapote, sometimes called chocolate sapote.  I have two small trees that have flowered, but never held fruit.  Has not been a problem with colder temps.  Seeds came from Mexico where fruit was more like axle grease than chocolate.  Blended with other fruit or sugar would help.  Still, an attractive tree in the persimmon family.

They made flowers but no fruit ,because they are both male or both female trees.These are dioecious trees most likely ,but sometimes they can make one year female flowers then 2 years after they make male flowers and sometimes.they can make.both types of flowers in the same year.
Texas persimmon is a lot better than black sapote and the asian persimmon pollination variant , ,,chocolate,, its an interesting tree.

Ah, learn something new today. My black sapote (in a big trash container) had about 18 flowers a couple months ago, all dropped. So you're saying I'll just have to wait for that one special year where both male and female flowers are produced at the same time?
