Tropical Fruit Discussion / Phyto certificates and Arizona?
« on: June 11, 2020, 08:00:47 PM »
I've been scanning eBay and such for interesting plants to get, but one thing I've noticed is a lot of plants listed with a note, "No Shipping to Arizona" - which, of course, is where I am. In fact, I did order a plant via eBay, and overlooked the note. I was lucky they went ahead and sent it to me.

At first, I thought our summer heat was the reason. Now I'm wondering if it's some sort of Phytocertificate requirement we may have? All a new thing for me. Maybe someone can give a little clarity? Maybe @FlyingFoxFruits? I noticed Adam's listing stuff on eBay with the "No Arizona" note.

Just looking for a little education on reasons.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Seedling label lost. What could it be?
« on: May 21, 2020, 09:48:01 PM »
So, i have dozens of speciesí seeds planted. I lost the label for this little guy. I would wait for proper leaves to appear, but itís taking forrrever. By any stroke of luck, does anyone here recognize what this seedling may be?

The title pretty much says it all. I'm looking to grow this variety of pomegranate, but don't know where it may be available.

It is mentioned in "The incredible pomegranate" by Richard Ashton. But no idea where it may be sold.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango flavor and soil/weather/etc.?
« on: May 12, 2020, 11:21:47 AM »
I saw the hothead "assumed expert" in a local Facebook tropical fruit group all but smack down someone for this legitimate question. Personally, I'm curious of the actual answer...

Soil conditions/type, weather conditions, season length.... all these things affect fruit. like a wine grape variety in one French valley not doing the same in a California valley.

What about mangos? I've heard they like  drier conditions, like in Arizona (assuming the soil and water are amended). But what does the flavor do in different environments? Does one variety taste like sweet gold in one location, but like paint chips in another? Has anyone ever collected thoughts on this?

I'm sure most facts would be anecdotal, but it's a start -- unless someone has a researched answer.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Largest leaved mulbery variety?

I'm trying to find what may be the largest leaf mulberry variety that can be found?

I there's a Florida Giant and Pakistani mulberry.. but I'm wondering if there's ones with larger leaves?

Hi all! First post in the forum!

I'm smack-dab in the middle of Phoenix, Arizona. Is there anyone out there who has knowledge of how well live plants do when shipped to this area--or areas like it? I'm worried about them getting cooked in transit... literally. Our daily highs are already at 103 f / 39 c, and they'll only go higher. Humidity may be a factor, too? It's around 12-16%.

I'm sure some succulents would do fine, but are tropical seedlings and saplings something I'd be better off waiting until the weather cools in a few months?
