Tropical Fruit Discussion / Secret Santa
« on: November 08, 2013, 12:43:35 PM »
This more or less belongs in the Off-topic section but I'm aware MANY don't care for that board so I'm posting it here.

Does anyone want to participate in a forum Secret Santa? I'm not sure how international members can participate but I suppose a seeds wish list is feasible? I honestly don't know how this may work internationally.

I participated with the group on gardenweb in the past, but would like to bring the holiday magic to our forum, a tradition perhaps.

Interested parties would forward me their contact info and post here a wish list of seeds, scions, small seedlings or small grafted plants, etc. Just depends how generous your Santa is.

Who's in?  Any suggestions? Deadlines?

7. This is a "secret" swap...but PLEASE put your return address on the envelope(s)..and screen name, so everyone can be thanked.  The secret is to be, until they receive their card!

8. Homemade cards were the best last season...but send store bought, or homemade!! I loved the ones the kids made :)

9. YES....some people may receive multiples of the same seed, but the best part is...it may be a different color, or variety...ALSO, they can use them to trade later!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Too many moyas

Is there such a thing as too much? This gentleman's tree suffered from heavy fruit set. I believe this tree was hand pollinated...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lemon Zest in the Tropics
« on: October 16, 2013, 02:36:59 PM »
This is one of the two surviving LZ trees I grafted earlier this year while on vacation.  It only flushed ONCE being in a 1-gal nursery grow bag for 8+ months under their care.  Finally planted out a little less than 2 months ago, it's since flushed THREE times.  The vigor of this variety is unbelievable.  Just in case if anyone's curious, it's double grafted:

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fruit Fly
« on: October 07, 2013, 05:17:38 PM »
Does anyone have fruit fly issue with Surinam cherry? 
What type of flies and what steps taken to counter infestation?  It varies by location the types but a cherry full of larvae is plain nasty and all the same

I brought back some seeds from my Vietnam trip in Jan/Feb, finally getting around to sowing them.   I have a handful left to give away if anyone within the US is interested.  Annona seeds are viable for up to a year with good storage, works even better if you treat/soak them.  Chrysophyllum seeds I don't have enough personal experience but according to some online info, they remain viable for months, hopefully it's more than 7.

120 sugar apple seeds - Annona squamosa "chewy Vietnamese type"
18 starapple seeds - Chrysophyllum cainito var. L Rn

Please post here if you're interested.  (around $2 shipping within the US)
