I noticed an aberration on one of my Eugenia Calycina 'Nelita' plants - grown from seed I received from Miguel in Portugal a couple of years ago.
Looks like the growth tip has triple the number of stems growing as one:



By comparison... Here's a normal one from the same plant:



Mutation?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Jabo ID Please
« on: July 04, 2019, 07:05:29 PM »
Got this Jabo a couple of years ago as a bonus plant from Flying Fox Fruits.
Beautiful foliage and grows great in a 15 gallon nursery bag.
First flowers a month ago and now the fruit looks ripe. Is it?
Not sure of the variety.
About 3ft tall and wide.
Ideas please?

My Na Dai “Easy Peel” has been blooming for a few weeks now and I resorted to hand pollination to hopefully set some fruit.
I noticed a couple of likely candidates this morning:







Does this look like fruit set to you?
If you have any anecdotes or info about this variety to share I would appreciate it.
Thanks.

Several people have expressed interest in obtaining scions from my Black Star Suriname Cherry.
It's finally stopped blooming and I need to prune it back some.
I assume the less time between cutting them, shipping and grafting the better.
What size scions are best for grafting... and what is the best way to ship them for maximum survivability?
Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pitangatubas Are Exploding!
« on: May 04, 2019, 02:26:49 PM »
Figuratively speaking anyway... My half-dozen mature plants are blooming right now... better than they ever have.
Is this normal?

I have some space available along the street in my front yard and I was thinking of planting Mulberry trees. There used to be 3 ancient Hackberrys trees there... but Alabama power in their infinite wisdom pruned them to death to keep the branches out of the lines overhead. Now I have 3 positions open.
I have several specimens of Pakistani and Shangri-la available. Are these suitable in your opinion?
Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Eugenia Mystery Plant
« on: April 05, 2019, 02:08:09 AM »
I received this plant in a shipment of Cherry of the Rio Grandes from Adam at Flying Fox a couple of years ago as a bonus plant.
At first I thought it was a COTRG... but it began to show slightly different physical characteristics.
Salmony colors in the new growth... less dark green that the other COTRG plants.
It's a beautiful tree and fast growing as well.
I am hoping it is Eugenia calycina.

It started blooming a couple of weeks ago... here are a few photos I shot today:
















Let me know if you recognize this mystery plant.
Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Grafting Suriname Cherries
« on: April 03, 2019, 11:42:52 PM »
I want to start trying to graft my Black Star Suriname Cherry onto some Black Star seedlings and I was hoping someone could share some of their experience... as I have never grafted before.



I've done some research and watched a lot of Youtube videos but was wondering if there was any technique particular to Eugenias that I might consider.



I bought a grafting kit from Amazon and thought I could use it:




My mother plant is getting huge and somewhat burdensome to handle so I thought I could prune and graft at the same time.

Thank you.

I noticed today that the Ebay store "Polynesian Produce Stand" is using several of my Cedar Bay Cherry photos in their ad.

These are photos I posted here on the forum:

Anybody know these folks? Looks like they are in Hawaii.
I'm not so much against someone using my photos as I am against them not asking permission or providing some sort of compensation for their use.
They can reach me here at this address to discuss this topic:

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Exporting Plant Materials Abroad (From US)
« on: January 25, 2019, 10:19:37 AM »
I communicated with someone wanting cuttings sent to Denmark from the US.
What kind of customs or import/export issues might be involved?

Thanks.

I'll be cutting back my dormant Pakistani Mulberry next week and I thought some people might be interested in obtaining some cuttings for rooting or grafting.

This is a prolific and delicious selection.

$3 each plus $8 USPS Priority shipping. (For multiple cuttings I can give you a better price).

$3 each or... $12 for 5 cuttings... $22 for 10 cuttings ... etc.
All plus shipping of $8

US and PR only please!

There is no difference in the shipping charge for one cutting or 10 cuttings.
They all ship for the same price.

PayPal is my payment of choice

I'll be shipping them in a USPS Small Priority Flat Rate box.
The cuttings will be around 8 inches... as the box is about 8.5 inches in length.

Let me know if you are interested and we can work out the details.

I would prefer to cut and ship  them fresh to-order for maximum viability.
If you are interested or have questions you can reach me at this address:

jones@dbtech.net

UPDATE: Unless I get called into work, I plan to start taking cuttings from my Pakistani this Tuesday.
If anyone else would like cuttings, let me know before then.
I will continue taking cuttings on a cut-to order basis so that they will be as fresh as possible.
I plan to ship same day.
Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Trimming My Pakistani Mulberry Tree - Ideas?
« on: December 12, 2018, 01:09:49 PM »


My Pakistani Mulberry tree is a monster... around 60 feet in height.
Now that cooler weather is here, it's dropped it's leaves and is dormant.
I would like to reduce the height to something more manageable... sub-10 feet would be nice.
Any anticipated problems before I start surgery?
Over the summer I rooted 3 replacement clones as insurance against a worse-case scenario.
Hopefully it will survive the onslaught and bush out at the lower height with easier to harvest fruit as the main benefit.
I'm not particularly concerned about aesthetics... practicality is my main ambition.

As a side note I should have plenty of additional material for rooting more trees.
Thanks for your input.

Discovered these 3 unripe fruits the other day after moving my tree into my sun porch:



I'm guessing this is the actual shape of the fruit.


I've grown a Finger Lime/ Key Lime Cross and the 3 year old plant has finally ripened it's first fruit.
Since it only set the one fruit I'm not sure if this  is representative of how they will all look.







This particular fruit is about 1 1/2 inches in length.
The caviar is more elongated than my finger lime.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rooting Shangri La Mulberry Cuttings
« on: August 03, 2018, 11:00:55 AM »
I'm expecting Shangri La Mulberry Cuttings to arrive in the mail today...

Thank you for your help.

This year I am picking a bumper crop of Pitangatuba fruits.
But what to do with them?
They are not delicious eaten out of hand.
They smell wonderful.... But they are so sour!!!!!
Since I usually have lemon in my tea I thought I would switch to Pitangatuba instead.
Makes a good substitute.

How are you using Pitangatubas?
