Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Mango scion exchange ( only Europe)
« on: February 04, 2019, 05:57:52 PM »
I want to add more Mango varieties to my collection, so if someone is interested in exchanging scions in Europe only.
I have the following Thai mangoes:
*Chok-anoc - produces two times a year
*Nam Doc Mai - good taste
*Kieow savoy- very resistant, used as a rootstock in Thailand
*Falan - used as green vegetable

Also had a large Osteen who recently died back. Now I have only a small grafted saved.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango dieback indoors
« on: February 04, 2019, 02:17:15 PM »
I have a problem with some mango varieties that they die back during the winter. I wonder what is the cause.
Watering is some when soil gets dry and the soil mix is optimal for drainage and aeration.
Plants flowered then died. Only the grafted top dies.
They were sprayed with fungicide in autumn.
Also made a drench with phosphonate.

I wonder what triggers the sudden death. Plants get dry fast and die in a couple of days.

Citrus General Discussion / Seedless lime deficiency
« on: November 07, 2018, 06:05:28 AM »
I have this seedless lime (a type of Tahiti lime, even though the fruit and taste is a little bit different, more aromatic), variety unknown of Thai origin. It has been airlayered, so no rootstock.
It shows a deficiency, even though I spray with micronutrients on the older leaves still persists.
Any thoughts?

Citrus General Discussion / Fast flowering in citrus seedlings
« on: October 31, 2018, 07:18:42 PM »
Does anyone use a Japanese method to promote flowering from seedlings in less than two years?
There are techniques used also in Israel borrowed from Japan, but they seem to be secret somehow.

Citrus General Discussion / Oroblanco
« on: October 31, 2018, 04:46:36 PM »
I bought an Oroblanco (Sweetie) fruit from store (origin Israel) and to my surprise I found a seed. Now it's supposed to be seedless, maybe some bee pollinated with another citrus.
Anyway I planted in the incubator and after a week a seedling came out.
I know grapefruit and pomelo, the parents, take 8-15 years, or never if the seed was sterile.
Did anyone try it before?

Citrus General Discussion / Citrus tristeza virus test
« on: October 16, 2018, 12:03:22 PM »
Has anyone used these Citrus tristeza virus on site tests? It's handy when you get a new citrus tree.

Citrus General Discussion / Rootstock id
« on: October 12, 2018, 08:26:45 PM »
Anyone might know what this root stock is? I got it from Thailand where they graft on it. It grows very well, no iron deficiency symptoms @ ph 7. Drought tolerat.
From my opinion it could be a peptada.

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Giant bitter melon
« on: September 14, 2018, 07:23:18 AM »
Somehow the bitter melon reached 1.1 kg (2.4 lb), a new hybrid.

Citrus General Discussion / finger lime
« on: September 06, 2018, 08:51:39 AM »
This summer I made several experiments to induce early flowering in finger lime.
It seems like water stress and a solution of 1000 ppm KNO3 applied in the morning induces flowering in about 10 days during hot summer days, for a very young tree.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Zingiberaceae
« on: September 03, 2018, 07:54:40 AM »
Anyone expert in Zingiberaceae.
I want to ID this plant from SE Asia and I have some hard time.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Red pineapple
« on: August 22, 2018, 05:42:28 PM »
Why is the pineapple red? At the beginning the leaves were green and after a while turned red. Is this a variety? I picked up the slips in southern Thailand.

I have some extra Babaco cuttings for sale, now that the fruting time is over. They are very productive, I harvested 5-6 kg per plant, so many fruits from 4 plants that I gave around everybody.

1 cutting 20cm costs 15 euro. I will include free rooting hormone. Shipping depends on method EMS around 22 euro and small air packet around 10 euro. It depends on the country.

There is a company in Japan, D&T Farm who has engendered cold-resistant potted banana, papaya and guava. The DNA was manipulated after freeze/thaw cycles.
They will soon sell those plants, and the price tag is a little bit prohibitive $US 500.
They sell one banana already for $6.

Anyone from Japan planning to grow those?

Here is the company:

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Kaffir lime
« on: May 16, 2018, 04:43:59 PM »
I have few varieties of kaffir limes, if someone interested in Europe. Also seeds. Cuttings also available.
One variety raised from seed withstands cold very well -1C with no defoliation.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Potassium Oleate insecticide
« on: April 16, 2018, 03:14:23 PM »
Does anyone use Potassium Oleate as an insecticide? I am not talking about potassium soap from the supermarket, that is made of potassium fatty salts of different oils. It is officially accepted in Europe in organic gardening as an insecticide. I just bought a bottle to spray against aphids. Ants who were feeding on the honeydew died instantly. Now I wait to see the results. Neem oil applied at 2% didn't do too much.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Thai black ginger
« on: October 16, 2017, 05:52:48 PM »
Has anyone tried to grow krachai dum or Thai black ginger Kaempferia parviflora
Or anyone used it? It's said to significantly increase hand grip strength and enhance sexual stimuli.

I am looking for Mountain papaya Vasconcellea pubescens known also like papayuelo or chamburo. I need fresh seeds. I want to use them as a rootstock for papaya.
The rare  toronche Vasconcellea stipulata would be appreciated as well.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Babaco
« on: August 19, 2017, 04:29:29 PM »
Any Babaco growers in Europe?
I found that the plant can take the heat, up to 45C in my green house, but what it doesn't like is strong sun and wind. Plants grown outside had sun burns, and because of the wind the roots get damaged and eventually root rot kicks in.
Also I recommend a minimum size for pots to be 50 litres. In my 25 liters bags, the fruits are smaller.

Citrus General Discussion / Micropropagation of citrus
« on: August 19, 2017, 03:09:20 PM »
Does anyone here deal with plant tissue?
Do you know a good micropropagation protocol for Key limes?
Also how long does it take for the clones to make fruit?
