Heard the cherilata really tastes good. Has anybody eaten one? What did you think of the taste? Also, how is it to grow? Hand pollination required? Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Empire pots 65 gallon
« on: April 06, 2017, 02:34:23 PM »
Looking at large pots. This one states: 65 Gallon 18 H x 32 W holding approximately 8.4 Cu/ft soil Allows air flow to the plant rooting zone for fibrous root branching Effective root zone temperature control Can be used for multiple growing seasons Prevents root circlingDoes not trap water.

Anybody familiar with this product? Have any better suggestions? Thanks.

Below are some popular fruit trees I'm considering to plant. Based on your own experiences, rank them with 10 as most cold hardy and 1 for least, if you would. For example, a mango might be a 7 and a lychee a 9. If you want to, include the name of the hardiest of the type- for example mamey sapote 6 viejo (takes the most cold).

Sugar apple
Mamey Sapote

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cold hardiness of Mamey Sapote
« on: March 21, 2017, 12:02:11 PM »
Just how much cold can a mamey sapote take? Does an established 5 to 6 foot tall tree realistically handle 29f ? 28f? Is anybody outside of Miami and Pine Island growing them well?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Cherimoya seeds germination
« on: March 15, 2017, 06:29:06 PM »
Got some cherimoya seeds from Fruit Lovers. Top quality seeds, clean and in perfect condition. Looking to grow up some cherimoya for root stock. Any germination tips? Just put them in potting soil full sun?

Here is the deal- I have some really low laying land. Not like the Everglades or anything, but the sand just gets too waterlogged after a downpour (by August there is a little standing water in spots) to grow fruit trees. To build an adequate mound for each tree is expensive and maintenance is time consuming. So I have the following question and thanks in advance for advice/feedback: Can you get decent yields on atemoya, sugar apple and mamey sapote from a 25gal size pot?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / potting soil for mango
« on: March 10, 2017, 09:10:58 AM »
I'm thinking about making a low cost potting mix for mango. I am considering mixing compost (top qualtiy), cow manure (it is not fresh it is composted), top soil, sand and mulch into a bucket and using this combo. Any thoughts? Sounds good? Add something? Subtract something?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Soursop on Soursop
« on: March 08, 2017, 10:49:21 AM »
Went to the Caloosa Rare Fruit Exchange. Har Mahdeem spoke on Sourop. Here is a Soursop Tree on Soursop! The picture of this Soursop was taken on my block, I live on Soursop in Punta Gorda.

Har Mahdeem will be our guest speaker at our meeting on March 7th, and his topic will cover Soursop and its relatives. Meet, greet & eat starts at 6:30 p.m. and our speaker will start at 7 p.m.

Har Mahdeem was born in Michigan but grew up in the Amazon basin near the city of Manaus, Brazil where his missionary parents started an agricultural school. As a child, walking through the forest, he learned about fruits first hand with his perpetual question, "Can this be eaten? Can this be eaten"?

Now US-educated, Har Mahdeem is internationally acclaimed and one of the leading experts on fruits of the Annonas, a genus of trees, and shrubs that produce custard filled fruits like atemoyas, guanabanas, cherimoyas, llamas and bullocks hearts

Har Mahdeem's research endeavours on fruits of the Family Sapotaceae have taken him to the deep jungles of the Yucatan, Mexico along with a member of the famous Zill family, Gary Zill. Many of today's improved cultivars of Sapodillas (Manilkara zapota) are the outcome of the pioneering research work of Har & Gary. For many years Har was the chief researcher of Zill's High Performance Plants of Boynton Beach, Florida.

Just a reminder that we are now meeting in The Fort Myers-Lee County Garden Council Building.

*Park in back of the building in field closest to Larchmont Ave.
*The actual address is 2166 Virginia Ave. though only four cars can park inside the fences and we need to reserve those for members who can't walk far.
*Drive on McGregor Blvd from downtown, turn left on Larchmont Ave. at the SW Florida Water Mgr. Building just before The Edison Estates.
*Building will be on your left before the next intersection.
*There is ample parking, very close to entrance into the room.
