Tropical Fruit Discussion / Affect of seeds on flavor in cherimoya
« on: December 26, 2019, 07:29:21 PM »
I have seen Har say that more seeds = more flavor for sugar apple. I was curious if people have also found this to be the case for cherimoya.

Lost most of my seedlings to this last year. Is there a particular technique I should be using to prevent this?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Anyone bought from 9waters on ebay/etsy?
« on: December 03, 2019, 07:49:13 PM »
Has good collection of seedlings, was wondering if people here had had a positive experience with them.

I've tried fertilizing and spraying with copper antifungal with no luck. Very sad about this, is there anything else that I should be trying? They are currently indoors by a window so it shouldn't be due to cold or wind. Some examples of what the leaves look like:

If so, which species / cultivar should I try?

Have a large Haas tree but wanted to try topworking part of it - what are the best cultivars I could use for this? Bonus points if it is very different from Haas (in a good way).

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What's in season now in Maui?
« on: September 15, 2019, 07:36:38 PM »
Hopping on plane tomorrow, going to Ono farm tour but also wanted to know what I should seek out while I'm there

I have had them in plastic bags for a week and the scales haven't started falling off yet. Not sure if I picked them underripe, or if I need to wait longer.

What varieties do people recommend? This is in Santa Barbara region. Rootstock is old apricot that doesn't produce anymore. I'm new to grafting so less finicky varieties are a plus. I enjoy pluots and nectarines the most but I am not sure what is compatible with apricot.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fruit trees with the shortest lifespan?
« on: July 25, 2019, 08:03:41 PM »
Was curious which ones don't last as long.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / WTB pickering on manila rootstock
« on: July 12, 2019, 02:10:32 PM »
In CA where manila apparently does better than turpentine. Any advice on where to buy (if you aren't selling) would also be appreciated.

Plant is in partial shade, just put it in sun for the picture. Soil is kept moist. This is in Santa Barbara region which has been a bit cold and foggy recently. What could be causing this? What should I do to remedy?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is wrong with my loquat seedlings?
« on: June 10, 2019, 09:29:25 PM »
Leaves on my seedlings are crunchy and have black spots - not sure what could be causing this.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Can pawpaw be grown in Twin Cities area?
« on: June 10, 2019, 09:07:50 PM »
Not sure if this is too cold for them.

I have a Honeyhart in a five gallon pot, I am wondering if it is ok to plant it in the ground yet or whether I should keep it in a pot longer. Which will lead to a more successful, healthy plant?

If so, which one should I get? Looking for something self fertile / lower maintenance / easy to care for.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fruit tourism in Hawaii?
« on: April 23, 2019, 04:59:32 PM »
I'm going to be in Hawaii in September, still haven't figured out which islands I'm going to. Are there any fruit related activities people here recommend? e.g. farms to visit, markets to buy tropical fruit from, etc.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Are cherimoyas self fertile?
« on: February 20, 2019, 05:16:37 PM »
I have heard mixed things - some videos I have watched of hand pollination uses the same tree - but I have heard from someone that I need two trees in order to get fruit to set. I've also seen people online describing cultivars as "self fertile", implying that there are non self fertile cultivars. Are cherimoyas self fertile? If not, what cultivars are/are not?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Annona hybrids besides Atemoya?
« on: February 04, 2019, 10:07:26 AM »
Has anyone tried to generate new hybrids besides Atemoya? Curious what has and has not worked.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cameroon mango #1
« on: January 14, 2019, 12:08:59 AM »
My brother told me an amusing story from when he was in Cameroon - he was eating some mangoes with the locals he was working with and they were referring to the cultivars of the fruit they were eating by different numbers ("Mango #5", "Mango #2", etc). He assumed these were the arbitrary names given by the creator of the breed, so he asked which one was the best. "Mango #1 is the best, Mango #2 is the second best, etc". Apparently this was the widespread nomenclature beyond just the group he was with! I admire the naming efficiency.

I was curious if anyone here was familiar with Cameroon mangoes, and if so what the different cultivars are called in the US? Would be fun to track some down for him at some point.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Topworking vs. single graft on rootstock?
« on: December 27, 2018, 01:56:53 PM »
I was curious what the pros and cons of these two methods are. Is there any reason to topwork besides wanting multiple varieties of fruit on the same plant? Is it harder to graft higher on the plant?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / SCREC Cherimoya tasting
« on: December 04, 2018, 01:32:20 PM »
Is this worth attending? I saw a thread from the 2018 one where people were complaining about aspects of it. I have been meaning to visit a friend in Irvine and was wondering if it is worth timing my visit around this event.

I'd like to get a backyard tree for my parents and was looking for nursery recommendations. I'm also curious for breed suggestions - preferably something easy to maintain and self fertile (not sure if there are any non self fertile ones, but just in case there are ala paw paw or dragonfruit). I had Fino De Jete in Andalusia and loved it, but that's the only labeled breed I've eaten. I know next to nothing about this and my parents even less, so I appreciate your advice. Thanks!
