Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Can we use egg shells for our fruit trees?
« on: February 15, 2018, 04:16:43 PM »
I too put them in my worm bin and usually is broken down with a week

should keep in ground for another 2 shouldn't let it fruit for about 3 years but since it did the 1st year probably put it back for another 2

great product but poor customer service.  They did combine shipping but never gave me the discount.  I purchased it a month before Irma and I gave them another 2 months after that because of it so after 3 months I had to go through Paypal to get it back.  I think they just don't know how to use paypal.  But trees was super nice

I suggest waiting for it to warm up a bit and just prune off dead wood....if you want to pug it so it would come back all pretty again probably better off buying a new plant..... they recover super slow or even die  if you do anything too dramatic especially if its a young tree

Ok, I just cut open the softest Caimito and it exploded with white milky juice. This one has a small section that tasted like it was just about to ferment but it was quite delicious. It tasted like milk or water with sweetened condensed milk added. It was sweet but just barely. It had a Brix reading of 15%.

Simon that's why in Vietnam if you literally translate the name of the fruit it's "suck milk" like you sucking on a tit :)

Thank you , Veggieman and Brazilian Shark still looking for some one near by.          Patrick

what's the approximate age of a 3 gallon?

They discount different things all the time to keep people going back to visit. There's no advantage of pricing everything online so that people will know not to visit. I think you can call them to ask.

lol I called them twice within 5 mins and same person gave me different information.  I disagree on price listing.   If I see something I want that is on sale I will come and pick it up.  While I'm there I might pick up other things.   Think thats why businesses have sales in the first place to get you there so you might buy other things.   

Mimosa Nursery in East LA carried it.

20 gallons are available same as 5 gallons.

prices? im actually asking for a friend I told him to head there too but there price is all over the place and they don't update their website

let me know what size and how much I can pick up in orange county, long beach or san Gabriel area... thanks!
pm or text 714 829 0109

cherimoyas are pretty hardy so winter and during heat wAve is only time I wouldn't do it

if you want two plants you can probably try grafting but I would wait for it to get warmer

that's what annona guru told me :) but picture of fruit on the label is smooth skinned  I can take picture of the label tomorrow others can chime in....starch I came across that article too and they refer knight as pierce #2 I didn't know what that meant maybe a seedling of pierce that was even better then the original? so either case still better to get knight

if it's seeds I don't think it's going to be a problem when he/she sends it just declare it as seeds and what type....make sure it's sterile

dang gotta do alot to an already expensive mix :/

I tried looking for farfield but can't find it. members talk about commercial line too so I was wondering if this is the right one? I found it at a shop in South el Monte for 30 bucks out the door about 10bucks cheaper then other place I have scoped. 3.8cuft yoo

awesome thanks Bob!
