Tropical Fruit Discussion / White pitanga
« on: November 25, 2020, 06:47:25 AM »
I got 5 seeds of a supposedly white eugenia uniflora a while back from Vitor (wish i could contact him). Only one survived but appears I got lucky. Fruit are crisp with good flavour, a little small and slightly piney but not unpleasantly so.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Paclobutrazol
« on: June 14, 2019, 12:48:40 AM »
I was reading an article about a Japanese researcher using this
 Paclobutrazol in Japan to restrict the size of avocados. I also spoke to a former mango farmer from the nt who had seen something like this trialled. Im wondering if it could be used to restrict the size of Durians so they could be grown in a hothouse.

« on: August 20, 2018, 01:23:34 AM »
I'd be keen to hear what types of fertilizers people use on their trees, the amount and npk ratios, plus extra trace elements if applied. It might be a help to members to have it all in one thread.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / The much maligned cherimoya.
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:19:51 PM »
Im starting this after reading a thread in which BS Bullie stated that most cherimoyas were of better quality than atemoyas. I have cherimoya seedlings but ld only grown them as rootstock. Locally as Mike said, they have a reputation for being inferior to atemoya. Howrver they do grow better here than  atemoya, so if this is true, id like to know which varieties/seeds to go for. After peoples opinions on how they compare.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Think Ive been had.
« on: May 31, 2017, 02:42:10 AM »
I  purchased seeds of what was supposed to be casimiroa sapota aka matasano from rarepalmseeds. Now this plant is closely related to casimiroa edulis. I have been told seedlings should be pretty much the same. Have a look at the pics. The seeds didnt look quite the same as white sapote but were old.  I also put them in ga3  but that doesnt account for milky white sap. Im guessing sapotaceae. Not pouteria as the seeds are wrong but im after opinions.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rambutan pollen
« on: April 30, 2017, 08:50:02 PM »
I have three korlan trees, theyre not big enough to flower yet but are growing at a fast rate, im hoping in a year or so they will start. I want to try hybridising them with rambutan. Korlan are self fertile and more cold hardy but the fruit is smaller and less sweet. Id like to get some rambutan/pulusan genes in there and see if I can get sime more flavorful offspring. Howeverhave had little luck finding a mature male rambutan or pulusan to purchase. I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to store/post pollen of these plants and how to collect it? Im hoping to find someone in qld or the nt with a mature tree and get them to send me some when mine start to fruit.
