Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cherimoya & Atemoya Update...
« on: July 02, 2012, 08:10:54 PM »
Here is my  cherimoya "Honeyheart" this tree is always pruned in the month of April every year since it was bought, the tree is 6.5 feet tall and carrying about 75-100 hand pollinated fruitlets at this time.

Here is a pic of the female flowers.This is the perfect time to pollinate the female flowers.Here in my area I usually pollinate early morning between 6-8am or early evening 5-7pm.You will have low success rate if you pollinte mid afternoon.One main reason I prune heavily is height reduction and flower production.Flower production is very important
 because at any given time there is always a male flower,all you need is 1 male flower to pollinate about a dozen female flower.

In about 7 days you will be able to tell if you have sucessfully pollinated a female flower.The petals instead of falling will stick to the tiny fruitlet for another week instead.

Here is little fruits developing.



I will post pics of my Atemoya later this evening...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Just got my order from POG
« on: June 29, 2012, 05:15:09 PM »
I just got my Pickering mango from POG and was surprise to see a 7ft tree with nice branching.It's probably
taller because a couple of 1ft branch has broke off during transport.He also gave me a 5ft surinam cherry.Here is
a couple of pics:



I will be putting this one on the ground next week or in a big 24 gal pot.I have one more space to plant in the ground and I was saving that for an Edward. What you guys all think ground or pot will be ok for my pickering?....Currently I have 4 mangoes in the ground Mallika, Carrie,Alphonso,Ewais, & Manila.
