Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / White sapote seeds for trade
« on: September 26, 2016, 05:19:49 PM »
I bought a box of white sapote.  They tasted so good.  They are better than avocado.  I sowed some of the seeds for my own.  I still have many seeds.  I would like to trade.  I am in 9b and I am looking for any cold hardy Garcinia seeds, sweet barbados cherry seeds, mountain soursop seeds....  Please pm if you are interested in white sapote seeds

I have passiflora quadrangularis outdoor and it has flowers right now.  Again it is not the hybrid one (I also has hybrid one [passiflora quadrangularis X passiflora alata]).  My passiflora quadrangularis has 3 pairs of petiole glands.   I hand-pollinated it but it failed.  Any tips how to hand-pollinate are appreciated. 

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is anyone growing Dune Soapberry ?
« on: February 21, 2016, 09:43:28 AM »
Dune Soapberry (Deinbollia oblongifolia) is in the same family of Longan and Lychee. It seems it doesn't require a lot of attention like its relatives. I didn't see a lot info of this tree in the Internet. I wonder if anyone has experience or has grown it before.

I grafted giant granadilla (passiflora quadrangularis) on passiflora caerulea successfully.  I wonder passiflora caerulea will survive below 32F in San Jose, CA.  I suspect with the El Nino the lowest temperature of my area will not go below 32F this winter.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Grafting soursop on cherimoya
« on: October 20, 2015, 09:31:36 PM »
I didn't realize how easy to graft soursop on cherimoya.  I grafted 3 branches on cherimoya seedling, and they all took and are growing well.  I wonder if the soursop grafted on cherimoya will handle the cold as well as (or little less than) cherimoya does.  I posted the topic from other forum but didn't get many responses; therefore, I post here now.  Anyway, this winter will answer my question. 

Did anybody graft soursop on pawpaw?

I am living in San Jose, CA (9b)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado Seedling has Flowers in 3 yrs
« on: April 21, 2014, 01:10:01 PM »
I saw an huge avocado in my neighbor but it never has one single flower.  I was surprised mine has flower after 2.5 yrs to 3 yrs from seed.  Here is the picture of my seedling avocado. 

It is about 4 foot tall.  I planted it in my front yard.

I suspected the flower will not become fruit.  It is first year it has flowers but the flowers come from the main trunk rather than from branches.  I will try to hand pollinate them to see I can get fruit.  By the way, the seed of the seedling was from Costco avocado.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Grafting Tropical Guava
« on: April 16, 2014, 03:48:15 PM »
Probably someone here successfully graft tropical guava.  If you do, please show picture or video.  I failed trying to graft on 4 yrs old tropical guava.  I believe graft guava can be successful if the rootstock and scion are soft wood (less than 1 yr).  I noticed the guava wood is very hard.  After making a cut (top work cleft graft), I saw a lot of water came out from the cut and damp my parafilm grafting tape.  And later scion died.  I searched youtube to see if anyone post the video of guava grafting.  I only saw one which showed cleft grafting on less than 1yr rootstock.  I also googled and saw people reported patch budding graft has high successful rate.  I tried that too but still failed.  I appreciate if anyone can help.  Here is my questions:
1.  What is the best time to graft?
2.  what kind of scion wood should be selected (soft wood or hard wood)?
3.  Do I need to use parafilm to wrap the scion?  (I live in 9b with low humidity)
4.  Does the water come out if I use grafting wax to cover the cut?

I am new to this forum.  I noticed this forum always has new topics everyday.  I am living in San Jose, California (Zopne 9b).  I like to grow special fruit trees in my back yard.  Besides of common fruits like plums, peaches, apples, pears, dragon fruits, persimmons..etc, what rare or special fruits can be grown in San Jose?  I have Hass, Pinkerton avocado, Hachiya persimmon, Italian prune, pineapple guava, yellow strawberry guava, tropical guava, white/red mulberry, special grapefruit, several kinds of passion fruits, cherimoya.  I wonder if anyone in San Jose can grow longan, lychee, mango, or soursop with minimal protection.
