Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Grafting verry young seedlings
« on: April 12, 2020, 03:58:24 PM »
I don’t think I can grow plum or walnut here in Florida but the videos are informative on grafting techniques.

I think you may can; you just need to find a variety that requires low chill, and it should do fine.

At my place we rarely go under 10C (about 50F), and we have both, and they produce just fine.
And just to clarify, it's not any tropical species that I'm growing, but just some Prunus domestica hybrids, and Juglans regia. Juglans nigra also grows very well here.

I can get scions from 2 different types, but only after Covid 19 pandemia is over.
For now I have about 200 seeds, if you or someone else is interested.

Hi Mike,

new sweet A.lakoocha added

are you sure that the seeds are fertile? I am asking because a friend has a single producing tree, but the seeds are all infertile, the do not germinate...

Felipe, that might be a problem of lack of cross polination that makes your friend's tree produce infertile seeds.
I've received in the past Lakoocha seeds from 2 different sources, and they were viable.

I recently received a couple of Psidium catleyanum plants from Nélio that I will try to grow in our winter garden here in Denmark. Plants look very healthy and have already flowered, so I hope to see fruits sometime not too far into the future. I warmly recommend this seller. Sune N., Denmark

Thank you very much Sune, for your feedback.
It was a pleasure to do business with you.
Hope the plants will do nicelly with you.

You might want to try to force it to flower using calcium carbide.

Seeds still stand a good germination rate at 70%, now it's good time to sow papaya seeds for summer harvest.

Any images of the ones you germinate about 6 months ago? Did they bear fruit already?

Couldn't it be some type of Davidsonia?

Pitanga (Eugenia uniflora) grows quite fast, and if planted close to which other is almost impossible to cross by. Also once established doesn't need regular watering, and only some pruning once in a while. I've seen them being used here for that purpose with very good results.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Air layering Marang
« on: December 22, 2019, 07:26:47 AM »
I have a lot of respect for the knowledge of Pacific Islanders when it comes to breadfruit, cocos, taro, etc. the thing is that I’ve seen breadfruit get sick and die after the root suckers were dug up. Now, the trees were able to produce other suckers that survived so it wasn’t a total loss. Caribbean people have only been cultivating breadfruit for a little more than 200 years. Perhaps they have a point when it comes to growing here. I am aware that root cuttings are traditional and that’s the way I started here but it did affect a tree of mine and then I heard of this risk.
Despite all this the most common way to reproduce breadfruit in the caribbean is to dig up root suckers. Most local farmers do not understand layering or grafting onto bread nut
It's possible you have some soil disease that is not present here that enters the roots?

That's exactly what I tought!
Something in the soil might afect the tree if a wound is created in the roots.

It is quite unlikely, but don't Forget that you can graft a loquat on a quince, that has quite different habits than the first, and it's a good match, so… Who knows...

Hi, I need male Carica Quercifolia (oak leaved papaya)
How curious, all my plants are female and giant monsters but without male no chance.

Cuttings or young plants. Only in EU.


muchas gracias


I recently got some cuttings of it, if they root, in a few months we can trade one male, for one of your females, to increase the genetic diversity of my colection. If you're interested in trade of course.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Cocos nucifera Growing in Madeira...
« on: October 24, 2019, 04:22:33 PM »
I do not believe that is it really a Cocos or Coconut Palm (Cocos nucifera). I can imagine that there are planted some individuals of Cocumbe Palm, Synonyme Quito Palm or Mountain Cocos Palm(Parajubaea cocoides) - this species is much more robust than Cocos nucifera and both species are looking very similar!

The palms in Madeira Island that were mentioned (and pictured) by Steven in this post, are really Cocos nucífera.
The palms are in fact very different from Quito Palm, as the last has a lot of fibers on the trunk and between the palm stalks, and Coconut palms don't.
And yes some of these palms in Madeira Island produce fruit, but they're fast removed by the city employees. Once I asked why did they removed it, and one told me that it was superior's orders, to avoid a nut falling over somone's head (dumbest excuse for me...).

Can anyone tell me if these are stingless bees? They're about 1cm long.





Solitary bees probably. Maybe Andrena or Megachilidae but scopa aren't clear in the photo

Stingless but will not make colonies and are unable to make honey, They are really good pollinizators for Fabaceae and other plants in any case.


Thank you for your answer and help.
I got to know, that there are a few species of stingless bees here in my Island but it seems that all of them are solitary.
I'm preparing traps, to see if I can atract any of these, and use them as polinators, but odd seem to be very low. There's always the possibility of getting a species of social or semi social bees, as some experts say that there are still many species to be identified here in the Island…

Hera are some others that I've photographed in the last year.
