Tropical Fruit Discussion / How to top work cherimoya trees
« on: November 10, 2020, 04:05:52 PM »
Whats the best type of graft to use on these on the harder wood 12-18" above ground?   Im waiting until April to top work them but feel like thry already got bigger than wanted over summer.  Now Im worried top working will be difficult.  The time window to graft is pretty narrow at my location, needs to be successful or will have to wait another year. 

The one in the pic isn't too big, but a few of them are already an inch thick.

Mango trees are falling over now too.  They were looking so good then got hammered.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pineapple thread
« on: September 10, 2020, 02:05:05 PM »
    Im sharing this info for people who are interested in growing pineapples.  Ill include some info on how to plant and the different types Im growing. 

    Pineapples are quite easy to propogate and grow.  They do well in containers and don't require much upkeep or care.  The only real issue is they are fairly tropical and do not like cold weather below 50F.  They will survive in the 30s but they stop growing and tend to go into decline, especially if they are wet and cold.  So pull your plants under a shade or inside the garage or greenhouse during those winter rain storms if its cold where you live.

  To propogate them you can use fresh slips or offsets and plant into small pots.  If you have slips that have no roots, peel back some of the lower leaves to expose the root nodes and plant into 4 or 6 inch pots to get them started.  Using a small pot allows the dirt to dry out while the plant gets established vs always staying soggy in a larger pot or in ground.  If you are lucky enough to live somewhere like costa rica or hawaii where conditions are right, pups can be planted straight into the ground obviously.  Im assuming most people reading this are zone pushing a bit and growing in semi tropical climate or greenhouses.  Pineapple plants do amazingly well in a greenhouse environment.  If you live in zone 8-10 , a greenhouse will be best during winter. 

Peel back your leaves and expose the roots

Plant into 4 or 6 in pots to root them for 2-6 months

This MD2 plant has been in the 6in pot for several months and is ready to up pot to a 5gal pot to fruit in. 

Once you are seeing roots on the bottom of the pot, it can be up potted.  This one could have been done a month ago.

A 5gallon pot is sufficient for most varieties to produce a large fruit comparable or larger than comercial store bought pineapples. This is a 5gal MD2

The soil Im using is EB stone cactus mix.  You want well draining mix with pumice or perlite addative in it for breathability and drainability.  This mix has no fertilizer so I will add a slow release fertilizer or some organic slow going fertilizer to the mix when potting.  A little animal manure would work also.  Use a well balanced fertilizer to start with.  Organic 5-5-5 or similar is good.

Then you can water occasionally maybe once a month with fish emulsion or other water soluable fertilizer to feed them.  I use a jacks 15-5-15 with micro package on pineapple and banana.  Or sometimes a grow power 8 6 8. They also like high iron and mineral content so a micro nutruient with iron is good.   Pineapples are not salt sensitive and they will take all kinds of fertilizers no problem, just don't go too crazy, an occasional feeding between multiple waterings is all you need. Don't over water your plants, once they have some roots let them dry out a bit between watering, they dont like suoer wet feet.   And when fertilizing with dry fertilizer scratch in around the plant into the dirt.  Or if using water soluable, pour straight into the center of the plants and drench the plant and soil.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / USPS delaying packages
« on: August 16, 2020, 11:06:49 PM »
My orders that shipped in the last week or 2 are being severely delayed.  I have 4 or 5 outstanding orders for fruit boxes.  I am probably going to refund any that are outside CA.  I will message everyone personally and let you all know.  But I want to throw this out there because plants and fruit need to go fast and they are playing stupid political games and affecting working class people like me who use the post office.  I can't run a business if that's how they operate, I will have to get setup with UPS.

We had a fruit tasting on Friday, it went well, about 10 people were in attendance.  Im planning to do another one in a few weeks when more fruits are ready.  Its a bit hard to time these things.  Ill post a date soon.

I only took one photo then people started showing up.  There was a lot more stuff people brought.  We had one yellow watermelon that was ripe.  The orange ones will be ready for next time.

Tentatively planning to have people over to have some fruits and socialize a bit in a couple weeks. 

Just bring something to share with the group. 

I realize theres a nasty virus going around.  Theres plenty of space and good breeze here to keep people safe. I plan to put out tables distanced from one another and people can distance at their confort level, wear masks if you want to chat etc so we can all stay healthy.

If you would like to join send me a message please.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Yerba mate leaf preparation
« on: June 30, 2020, 07:37:40 PM »
How to do it at home?  I looked into it and it looks liked a pretty long tedious process of drying and curing by commercial growers.  I'm asking about the plant harvesting and drying process, not the actual drink preparation.
