Tropical Fruit Discussion / Garcinia intermedia ID question
« on: September 21, 2019, 03:54:43 PM »
I have two plants of "lemon drop mangosteen" from two different sources and both look different. Is it due to variation among G. intermedia or they are two different species under one common name? I almost think that lemon drop #1 is in fact G. humilis (achachairu)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sudden lychee death
« on: September 11, 2019, 07:20:12 AM »
It was Sweetheart, a nicely grown five-years-old tree, that bloomed for the first time. It set only one fruit and suddenly the emerging growth got stunted and wilted, the old leaves got brown, but didnít fall off. It is dead!

Iíve read in one post here it might have been a root pathogen that caused it. Does anyone know what it actually is and how to prevent it?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / illicium verum vs. illicium anisatum
« on: July 25, 2019, 06:49:52 PM »
One is pretty toxic (illicium anisatum) one is little toxic (illicium verum). Both look VERY similar. The latter is true star anise.
Can these two "star anise" plants be distinguished visually based on morphological features?
