Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Coconut Dwarf Variety
« on: December 06, 2018, 08:44:43 AM »
San Jose is 9b so you could try if you want to but there is no guarantee. Dwarf varieties tend to produce in 2.5 years but the thing is a dwarf coconut isnít really a dwarf. It will grow to the same height as a standard coconut it only ends up producing at a younger age and shorter height. Iíd recommend Malayan dwarf(comes in yellow, bronze and green) or its hybrid the Maypan.
Youíll need to give it winter protection obviously but you have a chance of harvesting coconuts sooner so you might have a chance.

Thank you

Wanted to try this Rootstock out.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for banana pups
« on: November 16, 2018, 11:38:54 PM »
Im looking for a Blue Java banana pup, mysore pup and a pitogo pup for my garden. I found some sellers on amazon and eBay but I donít trust them that much.

Iím looking tor cuttings of this variety preferably a 12inches or longer. Just looking for 2.

I hear it gets up to 3.5lbs large. Does anyone ever harvested fruit over 3lbs? Iíve never seen any but Iíve heard of it.

They are some pretty mad aerial roots! I would probably leave them on there as they shouldnít be detrimental to the plant itself and they should eventually attach to the post and grow down into the ground.
Just out of curiosity, did you use rooting hormone on it all?

No rooting hormone and no fertilizer either. The other vines of the same variety donít have the same behavior.

So this is a Cosmic Charlie that Iím growing and it keeps on doing this every time itís new growth begins hardening. What do I do? Leave it?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Which online nursery do you trust?
« on: October 27, 2018, 12:32:08 PM »
So recently Iíve been contemplating adding a jackfruit tree to my yard here in Cali(I know temp. And all protect and so on). Anyways, Iíve been checking some online nurseries such as plantogram and toptropicals. I know shipping stresses the plants and Iím not concerned with that. Iím concerned if what Iím ordering is truly the variety I ordered. I was going to order a Honey Gold Jackfruit but Iíve seen that mislabeling is a problem in most of these places. So which one is the least prone? I mentioned two nurseries maybe there are more online ones so suggestions are appreciated.

I read a few good things about it and I have a large amount space in my collection left to fill so might as well add it. Have you tried the honey Gold? Iíve heard good things of it but in the back of my mind I feel it will be equivalent to a Kensington pride in terms of all of its characteristics.

I know these are varieties that are protected but Iíve seen a few people growing them from seed since they are poly embryonic. I want to try and see if I can get my hands on some seeds maybe just couple.

Looking to purchase a  grafted cherimoya plant. The variety doesnít matter much as long as itís a decent cultivar(decent size fruit, low seed and great flavor).

Thank you.

I just got a soncoya fruit to see if I like it. I didnít care much for the taste unfortunately. Anyways, I was left with around 25 seeds which Iím contemplating germinating or not. I might grow one tree to maturity just as a collection piece. However I was wondering if soncoya is a good Rootstock for any other Annona species. I saw a few old posts here but no answers except for one individual saying they thought they got a geffner atemoya on soncoya rootstock just to discover it wasnít. So does anyone know their comparability?

Iím looking for a few seeds maybe 5-10. I ordered recently from a seller and it took over. a month and all I got was a heap of rotting plants. They were already germinating and rotted in transit. So I donít mind paying for express shipping if need be.


Comment or PM if you have or know where I can find one.


I just pruned my hog plum and rooted a few cuttings.  I had 6 total, 3 I trimmed most of the leaves off of and left a couple of half leaves on it.  3 I left quite a bit of leaves on.  To my surprise, the cuttings with not much leaf all died quickly.  The cuttings with lots of leaves took off quickly.  I just stuck them in a pot with regular soil that had been outside for some time after a quick rooting hormone treatment.

I had expected the heavily leafed cuttings to dry out and die, but it was just the opposite.

Was this your experience?

I leave my cuttings with all the leaves intact. I simply push them into the soil. They root after a month or so. I use 4-6ft long cuttings with a minimum of 2 inches of thickness. Never failed me. This is for the red hog plum. The yellow variety is another story since they are shy when it comes to rooting and require more care.

I personally donít like them ripe. Instead I eat them unripe or slightly ripe with a bit of salt. Itís not my favorite but most of my friends love it so I grow it.

I know this is a dead thread but I just checked the Purdue university file on Soursop and it says itís a satisfactory rootstock for sugarapple but the chart here states itís no. Anyone had any luck with that combo?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for Annona scions in Mexico
« on: September 20, 2018, 11:57:36 PM »
Iím looking for sugarapple and atemoya scions that can be shipped to Mexico. Iím looking for a few scions to graft a few trees I have in my farm here and I donít think I can get from the USA.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is atemoya compatable to soursop?
« on: September 20, 2018, 09:07:33 PM »
I was thinking of grafting some soursops into atemoya is it possible?

From personal experience the root system has never been much of a problem for me. I have a 15ft tall tree with a trunk diamete of over a foot right next to my storage garage. I started it from a cutting. There is also a waterline next to it approximately 6 feet away and itís has gotten no damage. My tree has been in the ground for 12 years. During pruning I usually just stick the cut branches in the ground and they root readily however I do dispose of them after some time usually a year. They have a vigorous root system but itís nothing that will break through a wall. I also have a three year old plant that is in a seed bed that I left to grow right next to my fence and it has not compromised it. IDE recommend you planting it at least 5 feed from the wall or structure just as a precaution but personally you have nothing to worry about in terms of roots.
