Tropical Fruit Discussion / How to get rid of these on my acerola?

I've tried spraying them off with the water hose, but they always return.
What can I do next to permanently kill them?
Thanks,

Temperate Fruit Discussion / From Germany, what are these fruits?
« on: July 14, 2019, 06:31:45 PM »
And are they edible?
I didn't dare try, Lol.

Looks very, very much like cherries.
Maybe they're too sour?

Are flat and/or skinny branches indicative of a lack of water? or something else?
Thanks,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What's this scaly thing?
« on: June 11, 2019, 01:21:22 PM »
I've seen some on the branches of trees, this specific one is on my ladder. Very hard to the touch, hard to scrape off, like it's glued on with Gorilla Glue, Lol.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado flowering too much in a pot.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pouteria spp. Which is which?
« on: March 07, 2019, 09:06:04 PM »
I have 2 Pouterias here.
1 is P. viridis (Green Sapote), and the other is P. campechiana (Canistel).
Can someone help identify which is which?
Plant B has leaves that are soft to the touch, almost "velvety".
Plant A is just smooth, shiny, and "harder" to the touch.

Thanks,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Dragon fruit training question.
« on: December 28, 2018, 12:21:41 PM »
I put a cutting of Physical Graffiti  in a nursery pot a couple months ago, it now has 2 lateral branches, so it looks like a "T", the vertical part is only about 10" tall.
I notice that the laterals are getting longer, but the vertical is not getting that much taller. I'd like to get vertical growth so I can tie it to the support trellis. I guess I can bend the laterals upward, gradually, so they don't break off. Any suggestions?
Thanks,

« on: December 04, 2018, 03:54:09 PM »
Just tried them for the first time over the weekend. Taste is buttery, somewhat fragrant, extremely thin black skin, size on the small side. Anybody growing them?
Thanks,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Soft cherimoya seeds.
« on: November 29, 2018, 11:22:39 PM »
I bought several cherimoyas recently, and noticed that some of them have seeds that are very soft. The fruits with hard seeds invariably taste much better than those with soft seeds. Is there a correlation between soft seeds & poor quality, hard seeds & much better taste?
Thanks,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Couple questions about black sapote.
« on: October 11, 2018, 09:10:47 PM »
Does it need cold protection? Overnight winter lows in my area can reach 30s briefly, usually in the 40s.
Also, some leaves' underside are black, the other side (that faces the sun) is green. What caused it to turn black?
Thanks!

Hi,

Over the past 8 years, I've killed 5 persimmon trees. Bought from either Home Depot or Lowe's, both Fuyu and Hasya cultivars. I've tried planting them in different locations in the yard. Slight afternoon shade, full sun, elevated in a mound, at normal depth,..... They all withered at died after several months of nice growth, leafing out,... I suspect overwatering, but not entirely sure. I have one right now that was showing growth through spring and early summer, and the last 2 weeks the leaves wilted, yellowed, and fell. It's next to a jaboticaba that gets regular watering, so maybe too much water flows to the persimmon? I'd appreciate any advice about growing this thing, I'm gonna try again until I succeed.
Thanks,
Trung

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Anybody growing jackfruit in container?
« on: August 10, 2018, 06:29:52 PM »
Hi,

I know jackfruit grow easily in south FL, but here in central CA it's not. I've seen fruiting jacks in southern CA, but I'm not expecting that. I like the tree shape and foliage and will move it indoor in the winter and hopefully keep it happy that way. Then I ran across this website that implies fruiting is possible in a container. Is it? Has anyone seen a fruiting jack in a pot? Below is a photo of mine.
Thanks,

Tree is about 6' tall, has been in container its whole life, currently in a 35 gallon pot. I just noticed that it had a couple flowers, no idea how long those had been present, smell great though, that's what caught my attention. Thanks!

Hi,

Super excited to finally see the results of my labor, after who knows how many years. They're still hard, how do I tell when they're ready?
Thanks,

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Paw Paw questions.
« on: June 18, 2018, 04:31:38 PM »
I'm very excited to try my hands at this, got a few questions:

[1] Is container planting even a feasible option?
[2] I've read that for some fruit trees, planting 2 or 3 in the same large hole is OK. How about for paw paw?
[3] My soil is clay, should I make a mound/raised bed?

Thanks!
