Tropical Fruit Discussion / Two plants in one spot?
« on: September 20, 2016, 07:48:26 AM »
I have two soursop and two atemoya plants. There are no other plants of these fruits in the area. Also I only have two spots in the ground to plant them. Is it okay to plant two of either plants in one spot to facilitate cross pollination it they do need it?(Both are seed grown) Thank you.

Is anybody interested in trading for these seeds. I'm looking for cherimoya, rollinia, Jaboticaba(except sabara and yellow), mamey sapote or anything that interests me and I don't already have. These were market bought. If the above fruits are not in season but you can get them later, I can wait. Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Thailand fruits in December question.
« on: August 27, 2016, 04:29:01 PM »
I'll be going to Thailand in December. I've googled but didn't find anything out of the ordinary about the fruits available during that time of the year. The list had guava, papaya, banana and other widely cultivated fruits etc. Is there anything else that will be available in markets? Ill also have the regular fruits as well since they are gonna be of different varieties than the ones cultivated in India.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Guava leaf eating bug.

Something is eating the leaves of my guava tree. I've tried to but could never find the culprit. What shall I do stop it?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Bael fruit.
« on: April 30, 2016, 03:30:23 PM »
A relative brought a bael fruit a couple of weeks ago from North India where it is usually grown. Ive been trying to get a grafted bael tree for some time but its not available in or even around Mumbai. Its grown here mostly for the leaves so not propagated by grafting. Also the fruit size here is very small.

Unripe fruit. This was the smallest of the lot. The bigger one rot away when we were waiting for it to ripen and didn't keep an eye on its progress. It was twice the size of the one in picture in diameter.

After ripening.

The insides.

Since the pulp was full of fibres, its best consumed as a juice. The pulp on the inside of the shell can be scooped with a spoon and eaten directly. But I find the juice more appealing.

Tried to germinate the seeds in moist toilet paper and most of them sprouted. Now I have an excess of these.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Annona tree identification.
« on: March 29, 2016, 09:32:59 AM »
I had an annona a few months ago that I thought was an atemoya. The vendor couldn't tell me what it was as the fruit is new to the Indian market and was probably imported(He said it was seedless custard apple when I asked). I've been looking at annona pics on the internet and am confused whether it was a cherimoya or an atemoya. I've planted its seeds and a few of them germinated. Following are the pics of one of them.

Is it possible for anyone to identify the plant from its leaves? I should've taken a pic of the fruit but I didn't.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Thin Mango stem.
« on: January 18, 2016, 05:08:52 AM »
The stem of my Mango tree is very thin and it just cannot support the weight of the growth above. Is there something I can do to make the stemwood grow thicker and stronger? Currently I've tied it to supports but the moment those are untied the tree lays down to the ground.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / White frothy stuff on papaya tree.
« on: December 28, 2015, 04:59:22 AM »
What is the white stuff on the papaya tree and how to get rid of it?. It seems that it is caused by ants and is also spreading to nearby plants.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Atemoya
« on: December 12, 2015, 03:51:33 PM »
Last month I had an atemoya for the first time in my life and it was amazing. Fewer seeds and great taste as compared to the custard apple that we get here in India. I have planted the seeds of that atemoya and a couple have germinated. As I know its a mix crop and the seed wont produce an exact fruit, will the resultant crop be somewhat similar to the atemoya or something completely different?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Seeds from aliexpress germinated.
« on: October 25, 2015, 07:28:48 AM »
So I bought seeds from aliexpress just to see if all the negative reviews were true and also that they were really cheap. Climbing rose put in coco peat last month hasn't germinated yet. I put a few cherry tomato seeds in potting mix last week and 1 of them germinated. I hope that it is a cherry tomato plant though.   ;D

I know they are selling seeds for plants that don't even exist which is an outright scam.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mini guava plant from cutting.
« on: October 22, 2015, 06:38:52 AM »
I brought three cuttings of mini guava tree from my fathers home town in the north when I visited there last month. All three were planted in different conditions. The one planted outside wilted first. One planted with the original soil from the north wilted next and the last one planted in a mixture of local soil and coco peat survived and is now showing new growth.

I removed all the leaves except the few on the top.

The new growth from the nodes.

And this is how the fruit looks.

I reckon the plant must've started rooting since new growth is visible and also will fruit earlier than a seedling. Any advice for well maintaining the tree is appreciated.


I want to grow raspberrys, blackberry and blueberry in my garden but the plants are not available here in Mumbai. Is it viable to grow these berries from seeds and how much time does it take to bear fruit?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Can anyone tell me the variety of this fig?
« on: October 12, 2015, 03:33:52 PM »

What variety of fig is this?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / is this mango malformation disease.
« on: October 11, 2015, 09:49:12 AM »
Is this mango malformation disease? I wasn't aware of this disease back when I purchased the plant from the nursery.
