Tropical Fruit Discussion / What do you use to label plants?
« on: June 15, 2020, 05:08:24 PM »
Was looking into buying some of those aluminum tags, does anyone have a brand they recommend - or some completely different way to label? Want something durable that won't peel apart or fade in a few years.

Have non producing Meyer lemon I want to topwork

Is there much variation in the different cultivars?

« on: May 14, 2020, 12:19:22 PM »
Plan on attempting to grow them in Santa Barbara area. From my research online it seems like lemon drop mangosteen is the hardiest, followed by achacha and Luc's garcinia?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Slowest growing plants with good fruit?
« on: May 05, 2020, 07:35:40 PM »
What should I start now, so I can enjoy while I am still alive?

I was guessing chlorosis, so add iron supplement? It doesn't seem to be affecting all of the leaves evenly, just some

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Best way to root feijoa cuttings?
« on: April 24, 2020, 06:22:52 PM »
Have just failed for the third time, losing hope on this. From what I have read online it is possible and this is how it is commercially propagated in New Zealand, but other resources have said it is difficult. Has anyone here succeeded with this? What method did you use?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cherimoya concentrate
« on: March 03, 2020, 12:06:18 PM »
I was curious if anyone had tried reconstituting juice from the concentrate, how it was (ala how they do it with pineapple). Thinking about possibilities as a flavor for cooking while the fruit is out of season

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.

Not sure if this is too cold for them.
