Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Mangosteen seeds germination help
« on: August 18, 2017, 01:18:55 PM »
I put some from my own trees in coconut peat with little humedity and they took like 2 weeks to sprout.... Inside a zip log bag...

I used the same method for the market bought(Imported) mangosteen seeds and one of the two germinated.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Two plants in one spot?
« on: September 21, 2016, 10:41:16 AM »
Planting multiple trees in one hole should work from what I have researched but I will also recommend that you graft one variety onto the other and vice versa in case one of the trees dies on you. Good luck and please keep us updated!

Simon

Both the trees are of the same variety. I wanted to keep both of them for cross pollination. If that wasnt required I wouldve planted both at different locations. There are no soursop or atemoya trees in the locality. Sure I will post progress here. Thank you.

A few people have posted here advocating putting multiple trees in one hole to insure pollination and save space.  I have done this with a number of trees of various species & it seems to be working fine so far but still way too early to say for sure.  Anything I have that is dioecious but I don't want to take up a lot of orchard space with, I have been doubling up.

John

I'll do it too then. Lets see how they perform. The plants have become pot bound already.

I have four black zapotes planted in one hole and three of them are over three meters tall now. I have also planted other varieties two to a hole (mangosteens, pulisan and anonas) and they are all thriving. BUT, my soil is very deep and good. We'll see the effect in a few years. There's a good video on youtube from Dave Wilson Nursery on the technique that's very interesting.

Thats good to hear. The soil at my place is average. Will have a look at the video though. Thank you Doug.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Two plants in one spot?
« on: September 20, 2016, 07:48:26 AM »
I have two soursop and two atemoya plants. There are no other plants of these fruits in the area. Also I only have two spots in the ground to plant them. Is it okay to plant two of either plants in one spot to facilitate cross pollination it they do need it?(Both are seed grown) Thank you.

« on: September 15, 2016, 05:59:37 AM »
Is anybody interested in trading for these seeds. I'm looking for cherimoya, rollinia, Jaboticaba(except sabara and yellow), mamey sapote or anything that interests me and I don't already have. These were market bought. If the above fruits are not in season but you can get them later, I can wait. Thanks.

Enjoyed watching these bros for three days only to realize they were eating leaves off my bael seedlings. I dont know what they are but they do look like a pokemon.
Swallowtail caterpillar? They like to eat leaves of plants in citrus family, like bael.

Ah! Thanks. Do they also eat guava leaves? I had problem with my guava leaves being eaten but couldn't find the culprit. This was during summer. However it stopped when monsoon arrived.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Thailand fruits in December question.
« on: August 27, 2016, 04:29:01 PM »
I'll be going to Thailand in December. I've googled but didn't find anything out of the ordinary about the fruits available during that time of the year. The list had guava, papaya, banana and other widely cultivated fruits etc. Is there anything else that will be available in markets? Ill also have the regular fruits as well since they are gonna be of different varieties than the ones cultivated in India.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Papayas are simply weird!
« on: May 25, 2016, 10:03:55 AM »
A papaya tree grown right infront of my home gave us more than 70 kg of fruit without any fertilization. I love how its first harvest was only after 9 months of growing from seed. The seed was not even planted but rather just discarded in a corner. Its sad that it was infested by mealy bugs and will have to be taken down soon. Good thing I have seedlings from its fruits and will grow them again.

Hi,

I'm looking for Mamey sapote seed/s in exchange for some Indian fruit seeds. Thank you.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Indian Mangos 2016

I agree with Simon and know a lot of people that that would too. I think its the lesser fibre in Kesar and also the refreshing taste as compared to Alphonso. I find Alphonso and Kesar to be similar tasting with the latter a bit better. Also my stomach feels heavy after having an Alphonso. When I was young I thought Kesar was the most expensive because it was so good.

Wow. Never heard about the mancurad mangoes till now. Just googled them now and found out they do give tough competition to the devgad alphonso which I thought was the most expensive. Never saw mancurad being sold in Mumbai. Maybe its only popular in Goa where it grows specifically. But then also most of Devgad alphonso is exported to western countries. According to one of the fruit vendors 95% of Devgad is exported. Still there are a lot of alphonsos and other mangoes from different areas that flock our markets and one can see mangoes wherever one looks.

How easy would it be for someone from India to buy property in Belize? Are there restrictions? Saw pictures on google, it seems like a beautiful place.

May be grasshoppers.  They love to eat younger leaves.

I think you may be right. Saw a grasshopper in the vicinity today. If only I would've caught it red handed.
