Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Anona season approaches

Arent you guys worried about the neurotoxins in Anonas? Since I read about the possible link to  parkinson's disease I was too scared to eat them.  I love sugar apple  :(

Lots of people in Asia eat anona everyday.  We don't hear people in those countries with any brain related diseases. Only US has lots of people with brain diseases. I think it's the drugs that are available in US makes cause brain diseases, not anona.

how's everyone cherimoya coming along?  Last year, I have about 10 fruits. This year, I think i will have about 200-300 fruits(assuming they are not eaten by critters)  from 12 tress that were planted from seeds 8yrs ago.   Some are the size of golf balls now.   

or motion detected loud speaker that turns on with announcement: Mango thieves , mango thieves

let me guess, you got it from toptr..?

mango/papaya leaves tea - working for you?  Has anyone try it and is it really working for your health?

Here's close up pics of the tree today.

can you ship 10 orders to CA?  60X10=$600 is a good motivation to ship ?

heeheee...  I'll try to get some pic tomorrow of the trees.  That pic makes me salivating like a dog. 

My sister ping about  Raimondia and I was checking to see how it taste. And should I try getting the sees.  I came across this very funny discussion from coconut.  Looks like he might be somewhere in asia pursuing his nona farm.

Anyone else growing raimonda? how about the taste compare to other nona?

thanks Simon for the insights.  Fruits on it flowered last november. fruits are are about 4inches now. I do have flowers blooming now on both toptr and plantogra tress.  The planogram tree fruits sounded like what you describe. Maybe the one from planogram is real mahac.  When I cut up the ripen planogram maha, it has a flower taste to it.  i really like the taste of the one from planogram.

I ate the one from toptr. i didn't like it, it was a bit fibrous and the taste was complete off from the one from planogram.  it has a weir taste that I don't like. 

So far, i prefer the one from planogram.  Both of the trees are blooming again , the are both in the greenhouse.

Thanks Bill.   I was really looking forward to try the Mahachanok for the last 2-3yrs.   I feel a bit better now.  I'll take your advice and give it another year to see if they both will reveals itself as the real Mahachanok before contacting the vendors. The tree from planogram was not cheap. 

send it this way.  green mango is so good

after a closer look, they are soursops seedlings.  Sorry for the false alarm.

sounds like both are a quack. 

I ate the smaller green one , it was crunchy , not too sour. not sweet either, fiberless.  I had one previously from same tree, that was a bit on the yellow tip, it has a bit of floral taste to it.

The longer yellow one, I'm waiting for it to turn more yellow.

pick these two today for side-side comparison of Mahachanok mango from topt. vs plant.
The yellow longer one is from topt.  The one that split os from plantog, been told by Sqam that it does't look like Mahachanok.

i think when in season, SF chinatown has it for $2/lb.

I think I planted in Feb.  I just stick them into the pot with anything special. Just water.  It is in the unheated greenhouse though.

illma from Raul are starting to come out


My mom ate it. she says
not very good .too much seed and grainy.  I will graft a better tasting variety onto it.

Hope he hit the $400million super lotto jackpot and is living a good life somewhere.

i love reading his postings. It's like a little mini storytelling.  The guy should be a professional writer.
