I can attest to that too.

The wampee tree leafs are look like that.  Even the mature tree looks the same, only bigger.

Yes they are in one family (including Citrus) - Rutaceae. There is another wampee (Clausena) species - C..excavata. Itís leaves are so aromatic, that I prefer to use them instead of Murraya (curry plant).

I like Simmonds. It has less fat content and therefore is more light and "fruity" compared to rich creamy types.

I decided to revive this topic, as it concerns an eBay seller 7_heads.
I purchased a seedling of Inga vulpina ($70) from 7_heads on eBay. As it grew bigger it became apparent it wasn't the species I spent my money for.
I contacted the seller to let him know to only receive unapologetic response and no money back. Lesson learned!

Beware of 7_haeds on eBay

The bad thing is your tree is growing in Florida, which is the worst possible location possible for a citrus tree.  Healthy citrus trees die just as dead and citrus trees that are not in prime condition.  If an infested psyllid feeds on your tree it will die.  The tree's only hope is that a cure can be found.  They have been desperately searching for a cure for over 10 years and as yet have not found it. I give your tree a zero percent chance for a long life unless you surround it within a tight screened habitat to keep psyllids from ever reaching it.  If your tree has be growing outside it could very will have already been infected.

I have a 25 years old Citrus reshni on my property still fruiting every year and so is 20 years old Calamondin. I am willing to give ia chance to other varieties, which are 2 years in the ground and many of which have started to fruit already.

My mangosteen and button mangosteen trees seem to be about the same cold tolerance. Leaves start to wilt and burn results when or if temps go below 40 (f) or if they are directly exposed to nasty cold fronts below 50 (f).

I just noticed one of my button mangosteen trees started flowering. Male first to flower

Hi Dwfl, have your mangosteen seen temps close to 32F? Or what were the lowest temps it went through?

Thank you for the info!
I am actually looking for a general health boost in combat with greening. I can use foliar fertilizing along with root fertilizing.

A spray for fertilization, or a spray for insect control?

Thanks for your clarifying question. I am looking for a good foliar fertilizer spray.

For Florida citrus - what brand/type citrus foliar fertilizer spray gives you the best results?

Are you sure it is lakoocha? Any pics of a tree itself?

Thank you for your feedback. Enjoy growing them!

Passiflora ligularis makes a great tasting fruit, but unfortunately it doesnít handle well Florida heat. 

To me it looks more like a burn, may be some deficiency. Leaf miner damage looks different.

Excalibur nursery should have them.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Location for Rollinia/Biriba tree
« on: June 16, 2019, 02:59:53 PM »
Im looking to put another Rollinia in Ground. The area im interested in planting the tree acts as drain way for water during the summer rains. The area does not hold water but the ground does get quite saturated. I had a guava tree die from root rot in the same spot and Im wondering if the same will happen if I plant a Rollinia there?

Despite the information that Rollinia deliciosa often found growing in periodically flooded areas throughout its natural habitat, I'v lost one tree due to a few day's of flood. Now I have it growing at a higher ground.

Completely agree with FlyingFF, I would be more concerned with the wind and look for a protected spot with some sun.

Thank you for the ID now I know what they were talking about. Are they good?

Look for custard apple cultivars and grafted plants, they produce superb tasting fruits.

This is Basella alba or malabar spinach. The leaves are edible and as good as spinach. It does climb and needs some support to do so. Enjoy it.

It looks like custard apple, Annona reticulata.

Freeze them unpeeled and defrost them when needed quick in the water.

Are your black Pakistan Mulberry cuttings still available?
