Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Comice Pear
« on: December 03, 2019, 03:59:03 PM »
Thank you Carolyn; The problem I have is that I don't have enough room for another tree. :( That is why I need the scion wood only. Maybe I have to buy the tree and give it away to later on harvest the scion wood. :)

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Comice Pear
« on: December 03, 2019, 12:24:52 PM »
Hi, I have a Comice pear in my back yard. The tree is about 6 years old and even though it blooms profusely it doesn't fruit. I just found out that it needs a pollinator, so I was thinking on getting scion wood to graft into it to hopefully get it to bloom. My question is. Does any one have any recommendations of what particular scion wood to get and where can I buy it? Thanks in advance!

Any recommendations of how to care for the seedlings? I have 3 that are growing on my window here in Arizona.

Thanks for these beautiful fruit. I am going to let them get a bit wrinkle before I eat them, they are almost too beautiful to cut into them. :)
How many vines do you have? My vine only produced about 8 this year (second year in the ground) I let them wrinkle so much before I ate them that I thought them may be rotten, but they were perfect inside. I hope next year I will get more, but mine only get a little purple not as beautiful as yours. Thanks again!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Spanish Tamarind seeds
« on: February 20, 2019, 07:08:42 PM »
Hi, I was in El Salvador and a friend gave me a few of these fruit. They do taste just like regular tamarind, but are different shape. I found some information in goggle. Its name is "Vangueria Madagascariensis"
I want to grow the seeds but I need to know more information about it, I didn't find much info on line. Thanks

Jeff, when you say "a few pounds a year" for a small tree, do you mean? 10, 20, 30lbs? and how often should it be spread around the tree, all at once? or a couple of pounds every two week? I just planted my first one last month so I want to make sure it gets what it needs to prosper. :) Thanks in advance! XE

Thanks to both of you for the information. I will be patient and prune accordingly. :)

I have a mission fig in a 30 gal pot that is not producing any fruit. It looks nice and healthy but its just full of leaves. Its been there about 2 years and have only gotten one little fig so far. What am I doing wrong? I live in Phoenix AZ. so I put it under partial shade. Any suggestions are welcome. :)

White sapote are from the tropics. I am from El Salvador and they just grow there mostly from seeds and are delicious. One of my favorite fruit as a child. :)

In El Salvador they are called "mamon" but they are sweet. I guess its like the Tamarind, we only have it sour and I didn't know that there was a sweet version of them. :) and the trees are huge! :)
