Tropical Fruit Discussion / Making my cherimoya flower!
« on: May 18, 2019, 02:32:26 AM »
I have a nice healthy grafted "selma" cherimoya tree in my yard...  all my atemoyays are flowering like crazy, but not the cherimoya.   Im thinking its probably not cold enough.  I'm in Kona side of the big island of hawaii  at 1700-1800 feet.  it does get a little chilly here.. but maybe not enough..

Is there a specific fertilizer or chemical treatment i can do that will induce flowering?  or hurting the tree?   Help! i want fruit!

Ok does anyone know what variety of jackfruit this is?  Or better yet does anyone have this tree?   I saw this video on your tube and I pretty much am gonna make it my quest to grow this.  All the guys visiting Paulís farm were raving about this saying it was the best jackfruit theyíd ever had.     So naturally I need it

has anyone done this?  seems like all my atemoya flowers are always female at the wrong times... no males open   but i've got rollinia pollen for days.

Hi friends... i was able to bring back seeds from my last two trips to Thailand and Malaysia and have seedling durians from the following cultivars. I have too many plants in my nursery and am interested in selling a few..  the plants are in special 16" deep pots.. and are about 2 years old. 

Black Thorn
Musang king

Puang Manee
Nokka chip
Hawk Talon
and a few others that were top notch. 

These are not grafted trees, but they are definitely coming from amazingly high quality parent fruits.  please PM if interested.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Chempedek from seed
« on: September 04, 2018, 03:43:39 AM »
So I ordered some chempedek seeds from seed pirates over in Borneo or Malaysia somewhere.    Some kind of king chempedek variety... bright orange.  Anyways I planted the seedling today and was wondering if anyone know about how tall/wide/big this tree will get?  Also are they true to seed?  What are my chances??    Iíve got the tree on a drip emitter so it should get some tlc.

Oscar or any other experts out there I think this is a male tree right?   Looks like it has the pollen. 

Tree is about 5í tall.   

Any chance someone in Hawaii has one or two of these trees available? Lmk please

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Artocarpus collection and spacing
« on: April 21, 2018, 01:22:20 AM »
Well friends.  Iíve been working on a project for almost a year now thatís coming to completion!  Backfilling a 200 ft long retaining wall at the bottom of my property.  I am planning out the trees to plant and I will be laying irrigation lines with drip system as well.  So the trees will get some TLC

Itís left me with an area approximately 200 ft long and 60 ft wide.   Hereís what Iím planning on planting in the space:

Artocarpus elasticus (already in the ground.  10í tall and has been topped)
2 Keledang
Artocarpus chama??   Not sure the real name
2-3 marang
2-3 pedalai
2 artocarpus hirisutus
2 chempedek

Hereís the question for you experts out there. Do all these trees need equal spacing??  I know the pedalai wants to get huge and the marang too. I am planning on doing some serious top working on all these trees FYI...  and also Am I missing any must have artocarpus??

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pedalai in Hawaii
« on: January 12, 2018, 01:06:58 AM »
Anyone growing Pedalai in Hawaii?  more specifically the Big Island?  and if so how long have your trees been in the ground... fruiting?   I tried Pedalai when i was in Malaysia and it was soooooo good.   i preferred it over Marang..  i need a tree if anyone has one available...  oscar??

Tropical Fruit Discussion / eugenia calcynia
« on: May 25, 2017, 03:19:58 AM »
Hey guys.. from all the pictures i've found on google these little trees (bushes) look quite small and seem to fruit at a very small size (like a foot or two off the ground)   who has experience with these and can comment on how big they get and planting distance between them etc. 

i'm looking to plant them alongside a south wall of my house in a flowerbed area about 5 feet wide.   thanks!

i got my seeds from Miguel i think

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Achacha season in Australia
« on: March 12, 2017, 12:55:51 AM »
Hi guys.  When is the peak season for achacha in Australia?  And is it available everywhere?  Or just in the north.  I have a friend who lives on the west coast and wants to get some fruit.

Alright fellow jackfruit loving friends.  Since living in hawaii I have probably eaten At least 50 jackfruits. And this one takes 1st place by a huge margin. Unbelievably delicious

Got this fruit from a friend growing the tree on his farm in Kona.  He claims it's by far his best tree and he calls it a "jackfruit" but I'm pretty convinced it's a "cheena".  (Jackfruit/chempedak cross)  the way the pods SO EASILY remove from the central core.  And also the skin can easily be torn back (similar to how a chempedak does)   But the SIZE... (25 pounds this one) and also the taste and texture of the fruit are amazing.  Soooo sweet and delicious and the yield was incredible.   Texture was not all gummy like a chempedak... definitely not crunchy like jackfruit tho.  Happy medium I would say

Anyways I think it's pretty obvious to say how stoked I am on this one.  I will be planting about 10 seeds personally and selling the rest. 

Let's do 10 seeds for $15.  Plus $8 shipping within USA.   Get em while you can. This one is worth growing

Tropical Fruit Discussion / New growth on garcinias
« on: November 17, 2016, 06:48:57 PM »
I'm always fascinated by the colors all the different garcinias put out when new growth emerges. Had to take a picture of this garcinia dulcis.  Literally hot pink!  Haha. The others are usually yellow for new growth. Crazy.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / gunnar??
« on: October 02, 2016, 12:25:47 AM »
anyone heard from or spoken to gunnar? (jeff)  i ordered trees like 6 months ago..  I've sent several messages with no reply    i'm thinking maybe he got really sick?   anyone know?

this fruit is delicious!   Literally tastes like a combination of mangosteen and a tangerine.  Sweet and tart.  Need a male and female tree to cross pollinate.  4-6 years to fruit I'm told. 

These seeds are pretty rare.  I've not seen them for sale before on the forum. $2.50 each.    Minimum order is 6 seeds ($15). Shipping is $7 USA and $15 foreign.   Please PM if interested. 

Awesome fruit!!  The fruit itself is small but has very thin skin.  So the amount of edible fruit is about the same as a regular sized mangosteen.  Good ratio of edible fruit for its size. Also seeds come off clean.  No hairy fruit stuck to the seed like regular mangosteen.
