True Cempedak seeds are notoriously hard to grow...well, easy to start and then they "mysteriously" die out of the blue. I've grown them to a foot and then "pow"- dead.

Congratulations Carolyn! Thats a nice perk.

Sergey, I have a pouch of giant yellow dragonfruit I will send for free if you give me your address. Best regards

Make sure the seller is in U.S, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico. If outside of those places, good luck. Make sure it's a true chempedak and not a chempajack (Artocarpus integer crossed with A. heterophyllus (jackfruit) which is hardier but less tasty (if memory serves).

Great video Brad. Love seeing the kiddo involved since I have 3 young ones myself and can relate. You're getting things done, that's for sure!

+1 on the Reed. I have one that I planted and it grew 8 ft. in the first year...in a pot.

Can anyone identify these 2?



The top tree looks a bit like G. brasiliensis and the bottom pic is G. humilis

If you prune the inner most branches so the sun hits the trunk it will fruit more. Same goes for any jobo.

I have done this and it works. Proper flower stage is crucial however. Good job posting this info Simon! Good luck everybody.

I admire your dedication Joe! Your ability to process the literature and come up with your own ideas that could work in your environment is commendable. Well done.

I think it's an underripe Dr. White- could be fully ripe on the counter top in a few days possibly.

I left my little seedling outside over the winter without major problems. Though it is looking chlorotic... watering with rain water and distilled water.




Considering our Winter, that little tree looks fine. It will perk up.

17
This makes me wonder a bit further. Both of my trees made it through the hottest day ever for my area...last July @ 113 degrees (under a 30 ft. Magnolia) AND the subsequent coldest February in 141 years.

Hi Thy, just checking to see if you have any DF cuttings? Sorry you had to go through all of that drama about your "pictures". You are doing a good thing- I'm sure it is just a misunderstanding. Take care and best regards, Chris

That sucks Simon! I've been inside my head the last couple days about these trees and the info about them being difficult to grow. I really am miffed by this since I have considered them one of my easiest-no-fuss trees that I grow! My wife and I had a baby the day after my pic (above) with all the fruits on the tree, and I literally haven't been outside for 4+ months...other than to water the trees that needed it. I lost some plants (mostly seedlings) but these 2 trees were still thriving. Go figure

Very well said Adam! Love ya pal.

I actually just had to move them due to a home renovation but they are within a few feet of their normal spots. Both trees look a bit rough since they are flushing and beginning to flower. I had a hundred plus fruits on them last year.


They look nice to me.  How far are you from the ocean?

I'm about 10 miles as the crow flies

I messed up. The first pic shows them last Thanksgiving with fruit and the second is right now.

I didn't know they were that finicky. I have two them in pots under a large magnolia and have never moved them once. They look good and pump out the fruits. I water the bejesus out of them however, and supplement them with some sulfur every year.

Hey Luiz, what's that plant with the orange/red flowers growing on the ground? I love your set up and pictures. Thats a great price for the trees you're selling by the way.
