Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: White on Miracle berry
« on: January 01, 2021, 02:26:58 AM »
For that advice you should consult the label. Try finding out specifically what kind of mildew you have first (assuming that is what the problem is). The most common types are powdery and downy mildew. I'm guessing that you have powdery because of the white stuff, but you can look at some pictures of the two on-line to verify this for yourself.

My memory says that they use sulfer for powdery mildew on mangoes. The trouble is that because of high levels of fungicide use, some mildews have built up resistance to certain fungicides. If you only get partial control, switch to a different fungicide rather than spraying the same one again.

You may also notice that the affected leaves turn brown after applying a fungicide. Typically, this happens because the mildew had already killed the leaf cells, but they had not had time to dry up yet.

That is pretty much what I know, I hope it helps. My miracle berry never suffers from fungus problems, so I can't give you more specific advice.


Upon closer inspection, I've noticed some (not all) leaves are developing black spots. Anything about this?

That appears to be a mildew. Since the leaves are curling it is probably harmful. You might want to use a fungicide.


Ok, I have some copper Fungicide, is that a good option or should I try something else?

Does anyone know what this is? Is it lethal to the plant? Is there any way to deal with it?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Loquat
« on: December 08, 2020, 09:08:58 PM »
I have seen loquats that are as big as oak trees. I have also seen loquats in 25 gallon pots
full of fruit. I have three different types I grafted and they are still in pots. I recently bumped
them up to 15 gallon pots and am trying to figure out their spot in my yard.
My trees are flowering now and I don't see fruit set yet? Are you growing in a
greenhouse? If you are do you have pollinators available this time of year?

I don't have a loquat, I also don't have a greenhouse. It is winter (or close to winter) so the pollinators are unavailable at this time.

Are Loquats good pot plants and are there self-fertile varieties that you would recommend if the answer to the first question is yes?

Are air layered longans good potted/houseplants?

No.  Are you looking for a houseplant as in decorative or trying to fruit something indoors?

trying to fruit, do you have any suggestions?

Are you keeping in the house year round?  Where in the house?  Light source, temps and humidity?

1. Year-round, 2. My room, but will probably shift to a different location soon, 3. Grow lights, usually above 45 degrees (F), around 50-70% depending on the day.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Salaks
« on: December 04, 2020, 02:41:23 PM »
Salaks could be grown in containers, just needs a climate controlled greenhouse with high humidity and temps never below 60...its ultra tropical, thorny, and slow growing. Sorry to discourage you, but growing them in a temperate climate isn't gonna happen.

Eeh, it was worth a shot

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Soursop question
« on: November 20, 2020, 11:59:28 AM »
I live in zone 6a, So I am unable to permanently plant a Soursop outside without it dying in the winter. However, I was wondering if it is possible to have a Soursop grow indoors in a container and be able to fruit somewhat well. Is this the case, or should I try something else?

Interesting... Do you have pictures?

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Apple rust clarifications
« on: August 24, 2020, 09:07:47 PM »
I have some questions regarding apple ceder rust.

1.Assuming that chopping down the ceders is impossible, non optimal,or dangerous and excluding getting rust resistant varieties, what are good counter measures against rust?

2.Assuming the rusted apple tree survives winter, will the rust carry over next spring or does it need to be reinfected?
