Fell flat, total miss, try again next time
Maybe write the words " infected with Coronavirus" on the durian with your name on it.

Hundreds of hours of video content?
Count me out.
I require hands on experience to learn.
Super awesome for people that enjoy that format or live far away or in a very cold place where 100’s of hours of watching video seems like a good thing to pay for. Very cool to get the information out there worldwide one way or the other.
Is the personal interaction of a distant nature or some other folks from FL attend?

In person tropical fruit throwdowns.
I have never heard of such a thing. I could be down depending on how much fruit is to be eaten or variety available?
Noone has time to post a meme these days ?
Wow, the internet has really gone downhill.
 I have seen people expressing their winter doldrums and lack of any better plant works to do in this way.
Plant some seeds snappy gnappy , fighting is childish, that wouldn’t solve any questions pineapple related or otherwise.

Dream or any atemoya  is not good for marginal growing zones.
In Sac try HoneyHart or Chaffey .
My White’s split and dropped from the weather in December.
The right cultivar will make all the difference for you.
Try planting a white sapote , they love that Sac heat and can take cold/wind better.

The seed middleman is just trying to sell seeds, they could have been duped by someone claiming to have G. Madruno for them , but being based in Northern California and no good idea what a G. Madruno seed looks like the mistaken identity was perpetuated.

Just graft the good vertical branches between now and april with scions.

I can send you Oca, Costas and Ashitaba. Pm

Wow , that sounds like the best Annona of all time!
Except for the flavor part and Cherimoya is a much more cold hardy and widely acceptable rootstock here in California at least. I would hate for anyone in California to have the misconception that A. Montana was a better rootstock than Cherimoya, or would fruit all the time and taste like a soursop.
Maybe yours is the best in the world ever in the history of the world though, somehow.

Collect pollen 7-10 pm and apply before 9 am the next day if I remember correctly.

Pompous grass, mexican feather grass, scotch broom in California.

No such luck. I have a 7’ seedling here and a smaller grafted but you gotta get lucky or they gotta be old to fruit here.
I havent heard of either ever happening yet where I’m at.

Bump it. I have more fruits now.
Hi Jonah, ?? is your green sapote tree in Santa Cruz fruiting at this time of year??     Regards   Patrick

True to type from seed.
Crushed leaves smell like ginger.
Very aromatic and nice.
Seedy unedible fruit :)

Respect. Well done.

Pierce is great flavor, Dr. white is not more cold hardy , splits and drops when cold and rainy, HoneyHart and Licia have been cold hardy producers.
You can store in the fridge vegetable drawer for a week or two and then graft.

about cherimoya varieties, someone told me pierce is very good flavor, dr white cold hardy? selma pink flesh?

about grafting, how many time cuttings could be stored?

Bump it. I have more fruits now.

Buying quality tools is always worth it.
Buying grafted tree from nursery ? Sometimes its actually a seedling.
Buy a grafting knife and graft on.

The moon cycle and tides seem more math than magic and an important “grey” area to pay attention to when farming. While I have not practiced more of the nuanced, far out grey area’s of cultivation. I have heard about or read about successes I would never have believed possible . There is always more to learn about farming and how to take care of the plot of earth you are farming.

Seems like White Sapote hedge would be dependent on variety.
Is your 8 ft hedge fuzzy leaved? These tend to grow umbrella shape while non fuzzy type grow erect no matter how I prune.

Those are all Zill Florida Mango. 15’s in CA are going to be extremely expensive, if you find them they’ll just be bumped up from 5’s.
There is a rootstock issue as the Mango tree’s shipped from FL are on Turpentine and Manila has been recognized as the best rootstock for SoCal. Should be easier to find tree’s in Spring.
Best bet is to grow Manila seedlings and graft or find someone thats already done that and willing to sell.
Do a forum search on growing mangos in CA, lots if good info.
Welcome to the forum.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What avocados can live in -10C?
« on: December 27, 2019, 02:06:56 PM »
It doesn’t get under 25 at Epicenter nursery or where the Bonny Doon mother tree is.
Why are you so set on having this be a very cold tolerant Avocado when it is most likely a Hass seedling (guatemalan heritage) that has not exhibited those characteristics?
If people want to grow a very cold tolerant Avocado it’s better to not set up for failure and go for a Mexicola, Duke or Aravaipa where there is data and people growing them through cold winters with frost on the ground. There is no such data I have seen for Bonny Doon.

Bush look at epicenter website im going by what is said on their website not where mother tree is grown.i consider any avo doing pretty well when able to handle temps under 25 degrees F.
