Tropical Fruit Discussion / CA PSA Pharaoh moth on cherimoyas.
« on: November 13, 2019, 12:44:39 PM »
Found a bunch of giant catapillars on my cherimoya trees.  The biggest ones Ive ever seen, as big as a hot dog.  They do a lot of damage quick.  Check your trees, they will strip them fast.  I pulled a bunch off last night and am going to do a light sray of BT today.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Avocado seeds
« on: November 03, 2019, 10:07:15 PM »
I'm offering these because so many people have contacted me to purchase them.  I haven't used the stewart seeds but they are supposed to be very cold hardy.  The bacon seeds make excellent rootstocks, its a very vigorous and large tree.  Also reported to be moderately cold hardy type.   

The stewarts ship immediately, I will start picking Bacons this week and have some seeds the following week. 

1$ plus postage


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Santa Anas

I thought we made it through this year and were in the clear.  Everything has been going well in the garden until yesterday.  We got hit really hard with the dry wind last night.  Lots of broken plants, trees fallen over, shades and pots and trash cans etc thrown around.  The yard is a real mess and many plants are destroyed.  I havent even gone to look at the orchard yet.  Just looking at the plants closest to the house its not pretty.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Canistel pruning
« on: October 17, 2019, 11:05:03 AM »
Do you guys prune the leader or just let it go?  My tree is going straight up like a christmas tree.  Is it ok to let it grow how it wants and not prune or better to remove the leader?  I prefer to have a column shape tree unless theres a reason not to.

This one is in the ground and never been pruned.

This one is a ross I just got, same thing, growing straight up.  Will probably flop over once the stake is removed.  Should I prune it in half or just let it go?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Sharwil avocado trees San Diego
« on: October 04, 2019, 03:47:22 PM »
Was at walter andersens in Poway today and they had about 50 nice looking sharwil avocado trees from la verne nursery.   Would have got one if I didnt already have this one.  Didnt check the price maybe 40 if they are charging the same as other la verne trees.  They will probably sell quick. 


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Purple passionfruut comparison
« on: September 13, 2019, 07:05:47 PM »
Left to right purple possum, fredrick, red rover.

Flavor wise the purple possum and fredrick are both good and very similar.  Red rover has more of a unique flavor than them and tastes better to me and my wife. 

Fredrick has the thinnest shell and gets damaged easier from the sun after dropping off the plant.  Purple possum also damages from sunburn after falling off.  Red rover has the thickest shell and will take more sun before being damaged.

Overall red rover to me tastes better and also is able to sit on the ground for several hours before being damaged by the sun.  It seems like the best ones although they maybe have less edible flesh per fruit.

All 3 types grow like weeds and produce heavily.

Anyone seen these around?  I read an article saying thry can get up to 3ft long.  They called it "pura vida" grown at a farm in Miami.  Other articles mentioned russel avocado but I think they are different?  If anyone knows where I can buy a few scions of pura vida let me know.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Blue Java banana pups
« on: July 23, 2019, 04:00:47 PM »

These are real blue java not tall namwah "ice cream".  I have the tall and dwarf namwahs, goldfinger, and dwarf cavendish also if you want other pups.  The other pups I can sell for 15$ if you are also getting a blue java. 

These will need to sit here for a couple weeks before shipping until they make a couple new leaves and get rootbound.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Video tour
« on: June 24, 2019, 03:28:19 PM »
I tried to do this as fast as possible so the video is a bit rushed.  We have a lot of plants to squeeze into a 10min  video.  Use the subtitles, it helps with the poor cellphone audio.  I was carrying around my daughter who is almost 2 and getting very heavy to carry.
