Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Lemon Guava cultivars / breeding?
« on: August 22, 2019, 11:00:58 AM »
I've started Lemon guava from cuttings before once and I believe it was Spring time when I took cutting! They do produce bigger fruit if you thin the crop. I've brought back seeds of strawberry guava from Hawaii , red skin with cream flesh and about half of seedlings were terrible fruit and about 20% came out with good quality fruit!
Yes, some young person should try breeding for better size and taste I agree with Barath ;) 8)

Yes this happen's often in Mexican varieties and maybe other's too! By other's I mean West Indian var. & Guatemalan var. and the Mexican X Guatemalan var.

I have a few casimeroa pringlei seed to share.  Just picked some fruit today.
Matt, can you please give us a descriptive taste of pringlei? I have a seedling about three foot tall but has not flowered yet!

Safou has been one of the most difficult things to get information on.  Itís from Africa and much of Africa is dry, like California but it seems to come from a more tropical, wet area.  But this seems to span Cameroon, to the Congo.  There are highlands there.  Maybe one of our members from central Africa might know more.  Itís a very attractive tree with a good, avocado like fruit.

Thanks Peter, for pic's and information on this fruit look's very interesting I think that it might not be to cold hardy in that it comes from tropical Africa. Any body know if seeds are prone to come male or female prominently ?
