lol the comedy act was fire...

i can't understand a damn thing...

I'm still stuck on the Howling III...the best thing to come out of Oz since veggymight.

You have to know aussie districts and towns to soak up this cultural piece

my tree makes only androgynous and i've never seen a male bloom on it...and they all set fruits, and they grow up to about the size of a bean, or large pea, and drop off...i've had like 20 fruit set and drop off this year...just a waiting will figure it out one day.

live stream begins at 905 about 15 min from now

thank you Mike,

the only other place i seen one fruiting so nice in a pot was daley's the one pic with the kid, and the fruit bigger than his head!

that is not the norm here, i've never seen one fruiting in a pot smaller than 15 gal, until i grew fruited long ago in a 3-5gal...

first flowers to form, set fruits.

Good vid Adam, nice vibe. There is a lot to say about Rollinia. Not many fruits have had so many good selections brought to Australia over a long period after searches in South America and Central America. I have lost count of how many different variations I have tried with so many people thinking they had the best or unique selection. Their appearance ranges from smooth 'mucosa' style to extreme sputnik 'deliciosa' style.The taste doesn't vary dramatically between types with some a little sweeter or more lemony or even firmer. Seediness does vary, so does fruit size and tree productivity and colour a bit. I have seen really productive commercially planted ones with smoother skin and less blackening at ripeness on the skin and a standard 1kg quite uniform size. Russell's selection as I will call it has hug lobed fruit of great taste and a selection from Panama I got a few years ago has small smooth fruit in abundance.

to feed to your chickens!

Hello everyone and thanks in advance. My Sabara needs help but I searched everywhere but found no information related to what I have. I planted this sabara two years ago in-ground inside my sunroom and before that it was planted inside my greenhouse for 4 years.While inside my sunroom I used to water it twice a week but three months ago I used the moisture meter and found that the soil is always at 10, which is the highest moist indicated of the meter. So I stopped water the tree three months ago, lots of leaves dried up and dropped, but the same amount as I was watering it twice a week. However it does keep on pushing new leaves and the barks shed a lot more now. The sunroom has lots of windows and 4 skylines and south facing so there are lots of lights.I am in zone 7a Springfield,VA so I can not plat it outside.

My question is should I stop watering since the soil is always moist and should I expect any fruit and when, I got the tree as a 3gl and planted 4 years in the greenhouse and transplanted to the sunroom for another two years.

lack of humidity must be the issue.

i think a red, escarlate, or anomaly would be better suited for that situation than sabara, the sabara is just too big and slow to come to fruition...
