I noticed among many fruit growers here(no offense I hope)
and also those I personally know seems to think that topping and heavy pruning to manage the height of a tree is acceptable.In addition , agricultural department in my country seems to think it's acceptable.Here fruits trees like rambutan and mangoes are heavily pruned to stimulate better fruiting and manage the tree size.However I found out the opposite is what arborist websites and channels on you tube thought about the practice.According to them topping and heavy pruning shortens the lifespan of trees.I wonder if those arborist could be wrong? Besides most of trees that they deal with are ornamental trees.As for fruit trees there's something that is called economic lifespan and therefore there is no need for the trees to live long.Any thought?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Bisexual Burmese grapes?
« on: May 09, 2019, 01:20:04 AM »
Hi I just came across this article from a Thai site which mentioned that there are bisexual Burmese grapes.According to the site in commercial cultivation only grafted bisexual plants are used.In my opinion the article seems quite accurate but I'm still not 100 percent sure.If it's true it would be great and maybe offer some hope for baccaurea lovers out there

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Marimari aka cassia leiandra

Does anyone in this group cultivate this plant or have tasted it? From what I read it tasted sweet and sour similar to a sweet tamarind.Also it grows in a swamp and enjoys being inundated and is a fast growing plant with the ability to fix nitrogen.Hopefully those who have planted it and tasted it can share more about this plant

In this video they will talk about durio kutejensis and visit a farm where grafted trees are planted in commercial scale.There is also a segment on how to use this durian species in recipes

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Leaf turning brown on my red jaboticaba plant
« on: December 22, 2016, 01:59:58 AM »
 My red jaboticaba plant has been on the ground for about 2 weeks now.However after several days in the new site i noticed the leaf turning brown.Before i moved it to the ground it was in a poly planter bag and already in full sun without any damage to the leaves.Could the leaf browning be caused by transplant shock,intense sunlight at the new site,nutrient deficiency or pesticide spray? i did spray the plant after finding some ants on the plant.I water the plant using river water and rainwater if it does not rain and the soil is acidic.Just as a precaution i built a shade to protect the plant yesterday.Can anyone here help me on how deal with this issue?
