Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: White pitanga
« on: November 26, 2020, 01:59:44 AM »
I will take some comparitive pics, the fruit is only 2/3 the size of a normal pitanga. This specimen is actually grafted onto red uniflora. Has been grafted a couple of years.

I got 5 seeds of a supposedly white eugenia uniflora a while back from Vitor (wish i could contact him). Only one survived but appears I got lucky. Fruit are crisp with good flavour, a little small and slightly piney but not unpleasantly so.

Mine are just starting to flower here at the end of winter, I will post pics later. I think they need cool weather to trigger flowering. I need to try bulala seeds again, didnt get any takers from the last lots.

Im going to try inarch a rambutan and pulusan onto my korlan fruit trees this summer  if i can get top stock. If it works I will let you know.

Probably some type of dwarf Cavendish by the wine stains on the leaves.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Paclobutrazol

I was reading an article about a Japanese researcher using this
 Paclobutrazol in Japan to restrict the size of avocados. I also spoke to a former mango farmer from the nt who had seen something like this trialled. Im wondering if it could be used to restrict the size of Durians so they could be grown in a hothouse.

There are some interspecific hybrids being touted from fairchilds i think, but not sure theyre for sale yet.

This post is two years old, no one ships out of brazil currently.

Its a Richard Campbell. Part of his celestial series along with nectar of neptune and others. Fruit seems available here:

Hi all,
       Im trying to get hold of E4 mango seeds, also possibly the ones below: happy to work something out on costs.
Brahm Kai Meu
Keow Savoy
Kook Lom Krong
Piņa Colada
Mun Khun See
Lemon Meringue(PPK)
Orange Sherbet 
Lemon Zest
Sweet Tart
Coconut Cream 

Seeds are not going to come true to type. Most of the better tasting ones are selections from wild populations, genetic flukes as such. I dont think there are any improved landraces or breeding programs that would offer seeds with much probability of improved offspring.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Hybrid pouteria
« on: May 01, 2019, 08:35:26 AM »
Im wondering, alot of people here are growing one or more species of pouteria. Has anyone ever come across seedlings that may have been hybrid in nature?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Are top tropicals reliable
« on: April 03, 2019, 11:15:32 PM »
I have been chasing seeds of vitis tiliifolia and top tropicals has them apparently for sale, just wondered if they are reliable.

Anyway,  back to Lucs sapote.

Thats pretty much the same as me, just hoping he didnt come to grief, will snail mail him.

Havent heard from him in a while, has anyone had any contact with him?

Nephelium maingayi

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Citrus inodora

Nope its from the other side of the country  in Qld, not sure how big the fruit will get  originally it was on its own roots, im guessing cutting grown,it did nothing for 5 years then entually it started to decline, out of fear of losing it I grafted a couple of scions to a carrizo rootstock I had. 18 months later its doing great. Yes I am putting a few of my bigger plants in totes, others are going into 1/2 blue barrels. These are cheaper than 100l and 300l pots. I also have a bobcat to move them with and a 2.4m high door on the poly tunnel.
