Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Happy Autumn Equinox
« on: Today at 11:42:03 AM »
We are literally freezing here >:( . It already went to the mid 40s and my greenhouse isn't finished yet. Despite the weather changes, all my plants including the ultratropicals are happy for now :) ...
How close are you to finishing your greenhouse and are the leaves changing colors yet.Would love to see a photo of that :) I'm off to a glorious start of my Autumn. I dropped a log and got mud in my  eye. ;)
Greenhouse isn't finished yet, will defininetely make a thread about that when completed. The leaves haven't started to change-happens in about a month but if there isn't enough rain they turn brown and look ugly :-\ looks like the weather is going to warm up in my area for a little bit so I'm thankful for that.

I would love to make on of those. Must take a lot of time grafting though.

How long does it take to fruit from seed? Are they self pollinating?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jubaeopsis  looks like an interesting tree and seems to be extremely rare.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Source for large fruit trees in Florida?
« on: September 20, 2020, 08:55:30 PM »
 Welcome to the forum! For big trees I would reccomend excalibur fruit trees down in west palm beach... Pine island nursery in Miami also has large trees. I know that you dont want to wait that long for fruit, but smaller trees establish faster and grow faster than larger trees(25 gallon and up)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Plant Naming Convention Suggestion
« on: September 20, 2020, 02:15:11 PM »
I do agree with what you are saying, but not many people really use the scientific name...but useing the scientific name will result in less confusion though. Artocarpus altilis all the way!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Broadleaf papaya bisex plant produces fruit
« on: September 20, 2020, 11:01:29 AM »
If the leaf stems are purple does it mean it is self pollinating? I bought a papaya that was supposedly bisex but it never set fruit.

Since they are not in the same family, it would be hard but doesn't hurt to try. I have tried grafting mulberry to jackfruit and it looks like it took...time will tell.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Wekiwa vs OroBlanco
« on: September 19, 2020, 10:37:09 PM »
My relative out in CA has an oro blanco tree and it is my favorite citrus fruit. The fruit quality has been good every time I tasted it except once when it was left on the tree too long. It has very low acid imo. Tasted sooooo good that I even bought budwood from CCPP, but after a year the bud graft still hasn't pushed... :(

12
How old is the tree? A very beautiful looking tree. Also I have been extremely impressed with the quality seeds, scions, and fruit I have recieved from him in the past. Highly reccomend seller!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: A bunch of Jaboticaba flowers
« on: September 19, 2020, 10:27:50 PM »
Wow, very cool! Do most blooms hold their fruit?
Also do those varieties have to be grafted or will they take from cuttings (like a crepe myrtle)?
Also can you graft any of those to crepe myrtle??
I have thought about that also...but those grafts are almost always going to fail. It wouldn't hurt to try but I wouldn't expect much.

Hedge Apple or Osage Orange tree. Not much chance they would bother this.
They wouldn't eat osage orange I think but the only part of osage orange you can eat is the seeds... and it is a wild tree not cultivated for its fruits...
I was being facetious I was thinking maybe the iguanas would impale themselves on the thorns :)
;D lol... Then I would add salak to the list also ;)

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Growing Papaya on a screened in porch
« on: September 17, 2020, 09:46:02 PM »
Papaya will keep on growing...If you want it to stop without transplanting it, you can cut the top off to encourage branching although I wouldn't recommend it. Papaya grows fast from seed-can fruit in about 1 year with the right conditions.

"Let's start at the very beginning.
 A very good place to start..."
 (Name that musical!)
The sound of music? ???  Anyway...I also just bought a fruit punch mango...Hope it tastes just like how its named. Off topic, but if you type three question marks in a row it makes a face ???

You just got another subscriber. Keep up the good work!

Yes, perlite is to keep the soil from compacting over time. A must have for potting plants imo.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Pot size and repotting
« on: September 17, 2020, 04:52:13 PM »
Pull the plant out of the pot...if the taproot is circling the bottom then it is time...as for me I put the plant in bigger pot sizes than it needs to as I have less work to do and the plant grows faster...but like Brian mentioned the root can rot if you are not careful...also depends on the soil mix...noticed that the miracle grow soil over 5 years tends to deteriorate...that is why I make my own mixes.
