How is the quality of fruit vipin? This wild jack was planted around 5 year ago on a friends land in HI, still no fruit


The yellow-orange arils tasted very good. Literally no latex when ripe! Avarage sized fruits.
But, the number of arils inside the fruits where less in number. Hollow pockets were there inside the husk. I think, this issue will be solved in couple of years as the tree matures.

What about budding instead of grafting?
I always chip-bud graft Annonas.

Anyway good luck with it and I lost a sarteneja reticulata to soil fungus during the rainy season but my nearby ilamas did fine. Go figure.
Thank you.

Ok 200 days and only a short dry season is a bit more than expected and if your lowest minimums rarely get down below say 21c then it may be a challenge.
You must be wetter than Cochin.https://weather-and-climate.com/average-monthly-Rainfall-Temperature-Sunshine,cochin,India
I am surprised if you are getting much winter rain but yes I know they handle Darwin's climate and also around Tully here with over 4000mm. Maybe it is the varieties or spots they are planted because I suspect your climate is ok for them still.
The fungal problem is here all over Kerala.
We have two main rain seasons. The second one (October - December) overlap with the winter (December - January).

150 rain days a year mostly in 4 month monsoon, 3000mm/average, rarely reached 40c or under 17c perhaps? Around 10 latitude? Should be ideal for seedlings and they should have long and productive lives starting fruiting after just 3 or 4 years. Where did you observe this short life due to humidity? Those days of 36c down to 26c at night and the air like syrup for a few months should be fine for them.
I live in Kerala, India where we have 200 days of rain in an year. In my area (coastal lowland), summer day time temperature goes up to 39c and winter night time minimum temperature will be around 22c.
People are growing Ilamas in Kerala for atleast 6-7 years and no trees have fruited yet! Majority of the plants will die within 4 years due to fungal attack during winter.

Why I tried budding Ilama on to Custard apple is because, in our humid climate Ilama seedlings die in 2 to 5 years due to fungal attack.

Anybody tried grafting/ budding Ilama on to Mountain soursop?

Here in Florida, ilama on custard apple does not make a good match.
Delayed incompatibility?

It seems to have issues grafted on both custard apple and sugar apple.  Delayed incompatibility, sudden death after a couple to few years and non-floweing/fruiting.
🙄😒

Lovely work there. I hope there is no delayed incompatibility.
I read somewhere (online) that they grow faster and produce fruits. Anyway, let's wait and see... 😊

The same tree after a year (4 years from seed). Now, it is about 30+ft.



The same tree after 5.5 years from seed. Now, it is about 45+ft and fruited for the first time  :).

Here is my list,
1. Passion fruit
2. Watermelon
3. Papaya

Please comment your hate lists too (if any).

Brazilian rare species
« on: February 27, 2017, 08:10:36 PM


Chrysophyllum sp (Guapeva branca) - Sapotaceae - 4,00
Very sweet. Excellent flavor

growing this sp any info

Where did you get that info? It's possible that it is the same species, which is native to much of the northern part of South America, including Brazil.

It might be worthwhile planting another Marang as most but not all trees need cross-pollination, fruit with only a few or no arils (0-7 arils ) could eventuate as in my case where I only planted one tree. I have since planted a second tree from a self-fertile form that I obtained from a very grower in North Queensland.

Ok, I will try to get one more seedling. Thank you.

Yes.  Trichy is in Tamil Nadu.  BTW, when I saw your request for Tamil name, I assumed you were from here  :blank: .  So, the above two links from FB that I posted would mean nothing to you.  This fruit is available further south of even Trichy.  In Kanyakumari - the southern most tip of India.  In one of the links above - the one where the man is carrying the fruits hanging on two sides of the pole, the author claims that this is the way this fruit has to be carried.  If packed in any carton or boxes, the fruit won't last even a single day. 



I'm a local (UAE) Guy .

My father have a small-medium size company that is specialized in importing and exporting goods from India and Australia and to the Arabian Peninsula, and one of his business partner was a guy from Trichy-Tamil Nadu (if i am not mistaken) And that guy usually brings a whole jackfruit when he visit us.

I also know a few guys from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Kerala.

I had tasted fruits from atleast 50 Wild jackfruit trees and found only fruits from 5 - 6 tress really good to eat.
Fruits from rest of the trees were between 'eatable' to 'not palatable' due to latex, sourness and lesser flesh to seed ratio. Most of the fruits were small in size too.
There are two trees producing exceptionally good fruits and I rate them above good quality jackfruits. The fruits weigh upto 800 grams, no latex when fully ripe, large bulbs with smaller seeds and taste excellent.

I had tasted fruits from road side vendors many times and was disappointed.

vipinrl,

Do you know if Artocarpus Hirsutus fruit is available at Tamil-Nadu state ?.

I do know that Jackfruit is Called Palaa Palum in Tamil and Chakka in Malayalam, But got no Idea what Artocarpus Hirsutus is called in Tamil.

Usually called Aiyinipila in Tamil. The Malayalam name Anjili is also used in Tamil.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Artocarpus hirsutus and rigidus
« on: February 22, 2018, 12:37:54 AM »
Artocarpus hirsutus is indigenous to Western Ghats of India. Artocarpus rigidus is found  in Indonesia, Malaysia and nearby countries.
Artocarpus hirsutus is larger than Artocarpus rigidus, and have higher flesh ratio.
Both fruits are usually sweet-sour. Few Artocarpus hirsutus varieties are sweet and very delicious.
