Tropical Fruit Discussion / ID request .
« on: September 21, 2018, 06:16:29 PM »
These pictures were sent to me for ID , no further info available at this point  . The local name is Coloc or Kolok , this , according to old Mexican books , refers to Talisia floresii . Grows in the Golf of Mexico Yucatan area . With some luck later I may be able to post pics of a cut fruit , size and flavor ....My first impression is ...some type of sapote ...

As of today I am starting a little black book translating nicknames into who they really are , address etc... Some people are really good ( thank you guys )  at giving their full name and address when placing an order , others are not....also when answering ..no subject .....Basically I am just a collector trying to get a little income once in a while besides my miserable pension . I wonder what real seed sellers like Oscar ( Fruitlovers ) must go trough.....

Tropical Fruit Discussion / How do you kill a full grown cocconut tree ?
« on: August 16, 2018, 06:44:38 PM »
First I need to mention it is in the neighbor's garden so forget the chainsaw...it's gotta be discreet ...After trying to talk with him for several years to prune his trees ( I'd even pay for it ) that are destroying the fence I paid for and breaking the trees on my side ( falling dried branches and coconuts ) no results ....  I lost already several of Anestor's rare Eugenias and a row of Abiu trees is constantly broken ....  I talked to the authorities but they don't give a damn . So , I am ready for a ' Black op's ' raid ...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pouteria sapote
« on: June 08, 2018, 06:26:13 PM »
Dear friends , even though this is an endemic fruit here in Mexico ( I don't grow it myself because I am not really crazy about the taste and the trees are sooo large  , but I must say there are some varieties that are  " WHOW " )

The question is : How long do these seeds stay alive ....

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mabolo question .
« on: March 14, 2018, 12:42:35 PM »
I am planning on grafting some mabolo just for fun ( I have 2 producing females and 1 male ) .

Will a single female produce and if yes will the fruit be seedless ? I seem to have read this somewhere but not 100% sure....

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Strange ( bad ) fruiting year so far for 2017 .
« on: September 26, 2017, 08:15:53 PM »
Don't know about you folks but so far 2017 was not really a good fruiting year , actually very poor . Some trees didn't even flower at all . Others on the other side had unusual heavy crops . Did any of you experience the same ?

25
Since I deal with lots and lots of these seeds , cleaning them and let dry for shipping , some get stolen by wildlife and end up germinated in unusual places . Most of the time I cut these down or pull them out . Some that are not really in the way of planting space for other trees I leave them for experimenting with later on . Well ...one of these produced good size fruits now , not normal ...season usually ends latest in July . Never noticed them since this tree ( only 2 meters tall ) grows in an not much visited area outside of the orchard .

Only 30 some seeds available @ 2 USD each plus shipping . Due to problems with US customs ( people with no permit ) I'd rather sell the whole badge to ONE person outside of the USA . Sorry .
