I soak all my seeds if I don't have time to plant right away, seems to work fine. I agree with the Reed's, they are super vigorous, though maybe not a good choice for colder areas?

Yes, I agree with Simon, you're doing a service to everyone by just trying to cross varieties and see what "sticks". Great job Joe. I think the potential is there and we should do our best to help it along.

My old tree came with the house so I only have 1 tree. There are however, quite a few trees in my neighborhood. My tree is sporadic in fruiting...some years I will get a few and others none at all. This year was a bumper crop.

50's would be like a vacation in the Caribbean to a Feijoa in the Fall/Winter. They are very hardy...I suspect that even for seedlings. No protection necessary

I have a "Carrie" in a 7 gal that started to flower in September. Of the two bloom spikes It produced 2 fruit. The fruit are hanging and look like they will reach maturity in a couple weeks. Now I noticed that all the other branches are pushing out blooms as I type- very odd behavior considering I have owned another Carrie tree for years that produces at the usual time. The fruit is Carrie in appearance. I have Pickering blooming as well. My trees are acting a bit strange this year...I believe my Emperor lychee might be pushing flowers as well. Strange times

Nothing. Some Annonas start to look crappy heading into Winter. It will get worse until it gets better.

Great job Josh. Winning!

I agree as well. I was mainly saying its not that tough a job to undertake. Good luck buddy

I have them but they're too big to ship. Maybe I can do some cuttings in the spring.

I think (forum member) Jonny Redland moved a pretty large tree. Hit him up. Ive seen videos on it and its not as bad as you'd think.

Looks very similar to my 'crown 1' hybrid...cant remember where it was from or the cross.

Thanks Brad! I had it in a pot in full sun after I purchased it but it never had that nice deep green color that it has now. I have it next to a lychee and under a 25ft avocado and now its healthy and fruiting. We will see how it turns out. Good luck Brad, sorry to hear about your troubles.

For some reason this pic is the only one available in my photo album at the moment. I took some of the overall shape but alas, no can do. The tree is maybe (now) 4-5 ft. with a pretty thick trunk, and holding 20+ fruits (I will thin).

Well said Priya! Take care

I topped my ross at about 4 ft. The tree threw out some nice branches and currently loaded with fruit. Time will tell if it sends up a new leader to regain its pyramidal shape.

Thats sunburn in the first image. the trunks cages damaged as well if exposed on a hot day.

For Garcinia's especially, I coat all my pots with Microkote- from plug size all the way to large rootmaker/rootpruner pots. Helps with their poor root development. I have a (second leaf set) purple mangosteen I started from seed, growing in my garage under 24 hr. lighting...looks good.

Oh man that was funny! So perfect. Great job. Good luck with the new scions

Don't wait until they dry out to water them. They are newly planted, in full sun, and need all the moisture they can get...especially with the hot temps forecasted the coming week.

Ahh just saw it. I scrolled and missed the price. Thank you

How much $? PM if you want.
