Tropical Fruit Discussion / Anyone has tips on grafting guava? Please share.
« on: September 08, 2020, 04:39:04 AM »
My friend who has 30 years of experience on grafting fruit tree told me that guava and lychee are the toughest to graft.
I really want to multi graft my guava tree. It is a healthy Vietnamese giant, about 7 ft tall, has been 8 months in the ground. I want to graft Dolores and Jalisco to it.
My grafting experience so far is only white sapote and loquat with 95% success rate. Avocado with 10% success rate (part of the failure because of the heatwave).
If anyone have any helpful tips or tricks to increase the success rate, please kindly share here.
I will graft the scions onto the lateral branches. Possibly the green young ones since it will be easier to cut through.
Any thought will be highly appreciated.
Thank you everyone!

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / WTB Anona Rosada Scion
« on: August 20, 2020, 05:42:04 PM »
Hi everyone,

I would like to purchase some Anona Rosada scions.
Preferably next year when the anonas are dormant here.
Thank you very much.

I apologize that what I offer is not a plant. Been asking around and no one want this hen.
It just came uninvited to our house about a month ago and makes it her home.
I don't have problem adopting her, but our home is already claimed by the neighbor's cats. So the poor chicken is chased around all day. I try to knock the neighbors' doors if their hen is missing. Nobody claim it.
If anyone interested, let me know.

My Paxton Prolific aka KJ Pink is blooming now.
I read that this variety does not need to be hand pollinated in Australia
Is this the same case here in So-Cal?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Please help ID this plant

2 years ago I bought 3 seedlings, a pitomba, a pitangatuba, and and achachairu. 2 of the seedlings died during the winter, eventhough I tried to protect them. One that survived is a very though little seedling. It did not even wilt when I forgot to water it for a week. It is in a 5 gallon pot and today I see a bloom. I am just wondering what it is. Please help me ID it. Thank you very much.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Fantasia Nectarine only has 10 fruits
« on: May 28, 2020, 05:33:23 PM »
Hello everyone,

We moved to a new house about 5 months ago, and it has a pretty big Fantasia Nectarine in the ground. It is about 15 ft height and 12 ft width.
On January, it was full with flower buds, so I give a handful of slow released Osmocote. By February, some of the flowers were blooming, then slowly followed by the rest. There were hundreds if not thousands of flowers on the tree. Pollinator were bees, small birds, and ants that I noticed.
Unfortunately, most of the fruitlets dropped and the tree only has about 10-15 fruits hanging now. The fruits that stay are on the branch that already bloomed in January, not later on.
From what I read, Fantasia Nectarine is a heavy producer and not an alternate bearer. My Elegant Lady Peach, which I put in the ground nearby the Nectarine about 5 months ago is a lot smaller, but is holding about 30 peaches right now. Both trees get the same treatment.
The Nectarine looks super healthy, bushy, green, with a lot of sucker.
What did I do wrong with the Nectarine tree that it only bears 10 fruits now?

Thank you for all your help.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Tamaraca Mango
« on: May 14, 2020, 01:47:00 PM »
Anyone ever heard of Tamaraca mango? I am going to a nursery in Ranco Cuchamonga next week, and they have this variety available. According to them it is originally from Brazil. They just say it tastes good, no other explanation. I tried to google it but nothing comes up. The price is tempting, 15 gallon for $65. It makes me just want to give it a try.

Unfortunately my husband refused to let me kill a couple of pine trees that blocking a good spot with fertile soil. Those pine trees create a nice shade in the side yard, but limit the sun access. I already put 2 paw paw trees (i read that pawpaw will fruit well in part shade area) on the spot, but have room for 1 more. Now i have a 5 gallon white sapote, a 3 gallon Glenn, and a 5 gallon Mauritius Lychee. From what i read here, none of them will reach their potential with only 5 hours of sun. I would like the experts and gurus here to give me a suggestion on what tropical fruit tree will do well in that spot. I also have a 5 gallon jaboticaba and 15 gallon prolific sapodilla. I just put the jabo in the full sun about a month ago, it seems happy with 12 hours ful sun, but i can always move it. Another consideration is, the neighbor's squirrel sometimes take a peek on our side yard, which makes me thing i should put the white sapote there. Please help me with your generous knowledge, otherwise I might have to ask for my husband's forgiveness instead of his permission. FYI, the 5 hours sun is 3 hours of morning sun plus 2 hours of afternoon's.

Anyone has this for sale? I have tried buying the ones from big box store, it never bear fruit although it always blooms every year. The seedling i got online never bear fruit either.
Jim Barrett nursery used to carry it, and they certified to ship to CA, but they said they don't have it anymore. The scam ebay seller, guavaking, listed the airlayered one, and claimed the he owns the tree which always bear fruit, but all the pictures of the fruits and the tree in his listing are stolen from google images. So i doubt he really owns the tree.

Hello everyone,
I just ordered a Glenn seedling from Bob Wells nursery in Texas. It is 2 years old, and according to them is about 4 ft tall. I talked to their CS, and he said in their experience it will fruit in 2 years. They also have Lemon Zest, Peach Cobler, Pineapple Pleasure, Fruit Punch, Carrie,etc.
I have no experience growing a seedling mango.
If anyone could help, is it more challenging than grafted ones? Will the tree grow stronger than the grafted ones?
Thank you!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Accidentally double posted, sorry

Hello everyone,

I have a limited space to plant my cherimoya and atemoya trees in the ground. Will 5 ft from each other ( also 5 ft away from other trees on their left and right side).
It is a prime spot, sunny, quite protected from wind, super fertile rich soil (was a horse stable about 4 years ago).

I have a healthy 3 ft Vermillion Surinam Cherry in a 5 gallon pot. I grow it from seed about 3 years ago. The mother tree produces very sweet, thick flesh fruits (from a very reputable nursery ). Originally i have 4 seedlings, all start to have some blooms this year. I put 3 in ground and want to give away the last one to anyone who will take care of it. Pick up only since I have zero experience in shipping live plant.
91352 area. Thank you.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Semi Dwarf Sweet Tart
« on: March 12, 2020, 01:48:38 PM »
I saw an online seller offers a semi dwarf grafted Sweet Tart variety mango. Since i have been trying to get one, i am very tempted. I asked the seller where she get it from, she answered that she buys wholesale from Pine Island nursery. It us about 2-3 ft size for $189. My question is, i never heard of semi dwarf Sweet Tart. Forgive my foolishness, maybe I just not educated enough in the Mango world. Anybody can explain?

Is anyone in So-Cal grow this fruit tree? I am about to purchase a seedling online from Florida, but there is very little information about this Monkey Orange, except that everyone brags about how good the taste is.
This tree is semi deciduous, African native. I assume it will somehow do okay in So-Cal. But due to the limited space I have, I won't bother growing this if there is no chance to bear fruit.

Any input will be highly appreciated.


Never heard that anyone growing Cempedak here in California. It is not as popular as Durian or Jackfruit of course. But my palate loves Cempedak more than durian or jackfruit. It is juicier, sweeter, with the mix of bubble gum and cotton candy aroma. I can find fresh durian or jackfruit in the Asian market sometimes, but never see any cempedak (maybe because it is not as popular).
There is a seller offering a 3 ft Cempedak tree for only $40 on ebay, I am tempted to get it but afraid to get heartbroken if it will never bear fruit here (Los Angeles zone 10A).
