Citrus General Discussion / Ponderosa lemon history
« on: April 25, 2019, 05:41:34 AM »
I found great article about Ponderosa lemon history, it is in czech language.
So, here are some nice points. :
First time it appeared in spring catalog of Schmidt & Botley comp. in 1899. Under the name "American Wonder Lemon"
Here is their catalog from 1900.

Competitive company  Good & Reese presented it under the name Ponderosa in their catalog in 1900.
 They choosed the name Ponderosa lemon most likely from "ponderous Lemons".

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Soursop fruiting in living room.
« on: April 20, 2019, 10:02:07 AM »
In 2005 I sowed a seed of annona muricata . Seedling flowered for the first time in the age of five.
Since then it flowered several times each year, but because of long period between flowering of single flowers, it was impossible to pollinate it.
Finally this winter, flowers opened shortly one by one. So I pollinated with one day old pollen.
On 3.24. it was clear that one is pollinated < the right one from this pair>.

I used the pollen from the flower on the leff side of this picture.
On 4.12. I recognized strange thing. The flower from which I took the pollen, started to separate too <on the right side of this picture>.

So now I have two fruits.

I am looking for some passiflora edulis, or ligularis cuttings from fruiting plant. From good tasty cultivar.

I want to buy Dong Hong (Oriental red), or Chuhong (Forest Red) Kiwi female plant.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Banana seeds are tough.
« on: September 14, 2018, 05:39:51 AM »
In 2007, I bought seeds of Musa X sikkimensis "Daj Giant", Ensete glaucum and Musa violacea, some of them I sowed and the rest put in the drawer.
One ensete plant in 2008 from those seeds.:

This year, I decided to clean the drawer  and because I did not want to simply throw old banana seeds to bin I sowed them here and there in pots with plants and....
voilà : After 11 years in drawer.

Citrus General Discussion / Pigmented hybrids from Italy.
« on: April 20, 2018, 11:43:13 AM »
It's time to continue ...

right now, I got two new cultivars (released in 2012).

Sweet Sicily® /clementine Comune 2x × Tarocco 4x/


Early Sicily® /clementine Oroval 2x × Tarocco 4x/

both can form an anthocyanic pigmentation, in the form of reddish streaks, caused by cold temperatures, in the pulp.

Worth to read  study about effect of different pollens to fruit quality of 'Arka Sahan' annona hybrid. 'Arka Sahan' is a cross of  'Mammoth’ atemoya x  'Island Gem’ annona squamosa, selected by the Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bangalore.

« on: February 28, 2017, 01:27:50 AM »

Citrus General Discussion / Citrus hassaku
« on: February 23, 2017, 03:42:29 AM »

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Toxicity of eugenia uvalha observed on sheeps.
« on: September 24, 2016, 04:23:12 AM »
"Epidemiological data, clinical and patological findings of a disease of sheep, characterized by neurological signs are described. The disease occurred in the months of February and March of  2009 to 2013 in the counties of São José do Cerrito and Chapecó in mountainous western region and the state of Santa Catarina and is associated with the falling fruit of "uvaieira" (Eugenia uvalha Cambess). On farms where the outbreaks occurred had lots of fallen fruit on the ground, and the animals consumed avidly. Aiming to evaluate the clinical aspects of the disease and lesional was performed experimental reproduction through the administration of the fruits of uvaia at the daily doses of 45.45 g / kg, 68.18 g / kg and 82.35 g / kg. After 4 to 5 days of consumption of the fruit, intoxicated animals showed intense apathy, salivation, teeth grinding, circling, blindness, incoordination, opisthotonos and seizures, usually followed by death. Those that survived remained with sequelae of the disease, such as intermittent opisthotonos and seizures. There were no macroscopic or histological changes, however, were found the fruit, whole or fragmented mixed on the content of pre-stomachs. The main way to diagnose poisoning "uvaia" is the observation of clinical and epidemiology, associated with the presence of ripe fruit fallen to the ground. "

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Wild strawberry
« on: May 28, 2016, 10:49:39 AM »
Those are the real strawberries of my grandparents.
In the past it was not common to grow strawberry in backyards, there were no big fruited cultivars  such we use to grow now. People just walked to the edge of forest or meadow and collected those miniature fruits of wild strawberry.
Wild strawberry are very aromatic with pleasant taste different to common strawberry.
There are 3 different species in my area:
Fragaria moschata (my fingers to show the size)

Fragaria viridis and
Fragaria vesca

I came across another interesting annona. Annona vepretorum aka pinha da caatinga. This annona is happy in semi desert areas of Northern Brasil (Caatinga). I would like to buy seeds.
