that I know, almost all the tropical fruit are resisting the clay soil,specially the yellow-red and oxisol soil, but about the image that I looked,this soil seem have rocks, many rocks.

the animal is some that normally is controlable, the slopes there have caution, the loose clay  in storm time is a danger

interested me the thread of pomegranates, here too in a climate dry tropical produce sweet fruits, and are ornaments, which deny the fail of frost hours of some tempered fruit cultives

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Pawpaw Hunting - Gatlinburg, TN
« on: October 17, 2013, 12:41:50 PM »
Camile, big confusion. In USA pawpaw is Asimina triloba, which is in annona family. Carica papaya is called papaya, not pawpaw.

Oh, I am sorry :-[ that error :-[

In search I find this, not know why but well, really am sorry this error :-[

No problem! "Papaya" and "Pawpaw" are apparently etymologically related, per Wikipedia:

"The common name of this species is variously spelled pawpaw, paw paw, paw-paw, and papaw. It probably derives from the Spanish papaya, an American tropical fruit (Carica papaya) sometimes also called "papaw", perhaps because of the superficial similarity of their fruits."

thank you, that is the asimina triloba hmm ::),well, I have that search info about the plant, interested me

Hey wait, I say not that the durian and noni are comparables,I say that flavor have durians in relation  to Other fruits?

Excuse me my english, error of grammar and a bit practice .

Camile

OK, i get it now. Durian is not comparable to any other fruit. It is like a person asking what a banana tastes like that has never had a banana. Best is to go and try one. All i can tell you is the texture of durian is very soft, like whipping cream. Taste is sweet and very complex.Also it is very filling, has a lot of calories, lots of nutrients. I believe it is the fruit highest of all in protein.

Ok, gracias

The durians really smell so bad ?, more that the madure noni?

The most similar to this fruit are the soursoups, in size  but I not know in flavor and texture, in smell for never heh !

Camile

Very different from noni. Nonis don't produce gas. Durians emit a sulphurous gas. Most problems come about because people take them indoors where the gas soon fills the room. Durians need to be eaten outdoors. It's a big mistake also to put them in the fridge.
But biggest problem with durians is one never mentioned, not the smell, but the very sharp needle like projections all around the fruit. Very hard to open without good gloves or much experience in not gouging yourself. Not the kind of thing you can easily bite into, or peel, like a banana. Thailand is great because the vendors will open them for you when you buy them.

Oh Yes, but how  is the flavor, is similar to what?

I'm always on the lookout for pawpaw trees, so it goes without saying that on our recent trip to Gatlinburg, TN, my eyes were peeled.

We hiked over 6 miles in the mountain woods (Newfound Gap to The Jump Off) without spotting a single A. triloba.

The next day while we were strolling along the Vegas-style Gatlinburg strip, my daughter and I decided to ride the "Skylift," a leisurely ski lift that takes you up the moutainside and back down again.
On the way down, 100 yards or so from the bottom, I happened to look down at some landscaping behind the Gatlinburg Inn.
20 feet below us stood a pair of pawpaws among some other random bushes and rocks.

Once we got off the lift, I grabbed Mr. Caimito and we went down Maple Lane, beside the Skylift, then crossed into the Gatlinburg Inn parking lot. From there, we had to hop a little stone wall to get into the garden where the pawpaws were. There were no warning signs or anything, even though we were directly below the ski lift.

We inspected the 2 trees. They were healthy by all accounts, about 10 feet tall and full of leaves, some of which were turning golden. We stuck our heads into the foliage, looking for fruit on the undersides of the branches. Sadly, there was no fruit to be found. Of course, it's quite late in the pawpaw season, so it could be that the fruit was gone or perhaps they never fruited anyway.

The trees surely were planted intentionally, given their location among a landscaped area in an "urban" setting.

I guess if we ever return to Gatlinburg we'll have to check on the trees to see if they've fruited. And now any forum member who visits this tourist trap of a town will know where to find the trees!



False, are not pawpaws , the paw paw is like a palm in first place, second, the paw paw produce fruit all time here and too should do it in you region to the days of autum, that begin to dead for cold .

Also, the pawpaw need temperatures of 27 c or more costant , you should try to plant andean papayas, babacos or vasconella species, this resist the continental climate , of secure.

Here, this image is a regional pawpaw

« on: October 17, 2013, 12:32:45 AM »
My pakistan mulberry just dropped all its leaves. Planted it last spring and it flowered and fruited almost immediately. Fruits tasted a bit grassy but not worried about that. After a couple months the leaves turned yellow. Tried a few things and eventually citrus and avocado food. Leaves colored up nicely after that,  were good for a few weeks and then suddenly yellowed, dried and dropped a week ago. Should i be worried? My neighbors mulberry thats only a couple years older is still lush and green.

What are you not in autum?, that I know in you zone there stations

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Retarded Epical Growth
« on: October 17, 2013, 12:19:31 AM »




The epical shoot of my young durian tree does not grow well,it produces a lot of small erected shoots with yellow small leaves sometime necrotic at the tips and later dying off. The branches below are dominant,long and,are almost as big as the main stem.This symptom is common among a local clone.Could anyone suggest a remedy to this problem ?


Hey, me too have  this trouble but, with and peach and Apple tree , a guy that are working in cultives told me that the trouble  of this  plant is the fault of frost hours,excuse me if I talk out of this thread but, is true?

Hey those are beautiful and unique wild animals there in California. I was not aware of their existence there.

About two months ago, while stepping out the front door of my house, I almost tripped on an all black snake that crossed my path. I guess that's what I get for planting flower bushes near the main door of the house. I'm quite sure it wasn't venomous, but it was a somewhat startling event. Nothing like that has happened to me before. I'm glad I'm not superstitious; Happy Halloween.  :)

If you were referring to those pictures that, I posted. They aren't actually in California, I found them online, those three are actually new species found in the jungles of South East Asia(Laos and Burma to be precise) not too long ago. The first picture is actually a prehistoric rat(not an actual squirrel) species thought to have been extinct in the wild. But, biologist found some being sold in the wild bush meat market in Laos. the second picture is an Annamite striped rabbit found in the Annamite Mountains bordering Vietnam and Laos. The last one is a giant flying Squirrel species found in the jungles of Laos. That flying squirrel is bigger and longer than the average house cat.

Someone has been discovered  :o

Hi,

One day I saw this opossum strolling on my fence.



Tomas


thats rare this fara(opposum), here are whites and brown specs, variety I suppose....

22
oh,I see, thank you

23
this bit is a translation.............................In the months of May and June is carried out an activity that fills with color to the Square of the nine corners in Guadalajara, Jalisco. There they settle down variety 'positions' to display and sell food facts with pitaya fruit as well as the single. The pitaya is a fruit of the so-called cacti of vibrant colors and appearance of Espinosa, but thanks to the people who distribute you only given to the task of consent to your senses, you can also give you the luxury to see trucks with a horn shouting that sold in Amacueca pitayas, southern region of the state of Jalisco.

In the nine corners you can find the bread of pitaya, delicious and is unmistakable for its aroma and to cut a slice you see the seeds of this fruit. Sold the jam and also punch. But of course that solitas we can serve and enjoy its flavor.















So there are many in the family of Stenocereus ...................found mainly in Mexico...................they have been cultivated...........and cuttings (clones) shared for 1000's of years by the gardeners..................so apparently (feel free to correct any errors I make) there are many 1000's of unique cultivators.................following are the main families that these cultivators derive from
Stenocereus fricii  Pitayo de Aguas
Stenocereus griseus Pitayo de Mayo
Stenocereus gummosus Pitaya Agria
Stenocereus queretaroensis Lemaireocereus queretaroensis , (Pitahaya de Queretaro) from Galician Cactus Santiago de Querétaro, QRO, Mexico
Stenocereus pruinosus  Pitayo de Octubre

Note the months of fruiting indicated in the name Mayo to Octubre........providing a succession of ripe fruit
.............an interesting point is they are night pollinated by migrating bats................who also consume the ripe fruit on their return leg....................and so distributing the seeds (via air born poop) along their migration routes...................A lot of research is being done by the Mexican government to further develop and promote this wonderful fruit..................which has filled the market places for 1000's of years........................If you have any seed pm.....................please add any info or experience of this fruit you may have.......................






hey, here is a wild plant, but nothing think that this fruit are comestible...

about pitayas, this grows here
