Hmm, I see. Iím mostly into finding other varieties of finger limes anyways, this was just one of those I couldnít seem to find. I mean most I feel arenít available to the US yet anyways.

Anyone know where to purchase an established plant? Everywhere seems to be out of stock. If anyone has a 1 gal or larger (any kumquat actually Iíll buy lol-I have meiwa and Fukushu and want more varieties) Iíd be willing to pay and for shipping too. Fourwinds and logees are out sadly.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado potting mix
« on: June 11, 2020, 07:04:50 PM »
Hey all I just got my first avocados today! Going to stay in containers too. I live in the north so they must. Currently theyíre small so I have them in 12Ē (5 gallon) containers. I have a potting mix and perlite 50:50 mixture. Is this good enough for them? Just wanna make sure. I grow lots of citrus and never have issues with this soil!

« on: June 08, 2020, 12:53:53 PM »
Theyíre sickly I know, Iím just trying to make space. I have grafted all the plants I desire to have so these are the leftover, sprouted in October of last fall? Not sure what theyíre worth/if someone wants to trade me cuttings or plants for them lol. Will be shipped bare root. They range from 3-5Ē tall. Theyíve been neglected.
 
I have about 4 swingle, and I think 12 with a mixture of STD trifoliate, flying dragon, and other misc triís.

« on: May 30, 2020, 09:40:45 PM »
I can get you some flying dragon cuttings.  I'm interested in Owari Satsuma, Changsa Tangerine, Nagami Kumquat, Marumi Kumquat, and Ichang Lemon if you have any of those.

Dang not sure why it didnít notify me you posted here, perhaps you still have some for trade? I do have a few changsa cuttings left! I did have a nicely rooted Ichang lemon, but itís getting a little large to ship but too young to take cuttings lol, I pmíd you, if youíre still willing!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ĎDayí Avocado and Oro Negro
« on: May 30, 2020, 09:26:32 PM »
I just purchased these two avos (the day is mine and my budís is the oro). Iím just wondering a little info on them by owners? (Flavor, texture, size of fruit, vigor, etc..) I canít seem to find anything online about these guys!! Not sure where else to look. I also plan to keep these in containers as Iím Zone 5, I have lots of experience with citrus, so Iím hoping some of this is similar to that in containers. I have a 10 gallon and a 15 gallon container ready for the two.

Any input is really appreciated!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Avocado tree in containers question
« on: May 19, 2020, 05:16:06 PM »
Thanks for the responses! Iím looking to keep it in a 10 gallon container if possible though, I think those varieties are a tad too big to keep in a smaller pot. I read up on Wurtz which seems to be the only dwarf. Or the ďdayĒ avocado seems to do well in containers as well. Any info on those?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado tree in containers question
« on: May 18, 2020, 11:00:15 PM »
Hello all, Iím trying to get some info before I go out and buy. Iíve been growing citrus in pots for years now, Iíve had great success! (At 15 varieties and climbing!) I do it all from propagate and root my own, to growing my own rootstock and grafting them: All in Wisconsin (5A). My climate is not ideal, but I have a love for tropical fruits!
 
I would like to get into avocados! I do not know much about their pollination other than A and B varieties.. or what that really means anyways in terms of pollination  and I know that ďevery plant is made to be outside, not in contaienrsbahahxhakĒ

I would just like to know what it would take to grow one and have it fruit successfully! Any variety better in containers than others? I have heard theyíre quite similar to citrus in care, but harder to get to fruit and pollinate. I have heard that thereís no ďrealĒ dwarf avo, which I would love to start there if there is. Iím working on growing some rootstock and will eventually graft my own, but Iím thinking I want to get into it sooner than later!
