Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Babaco Papaya Cuttings for Sale
« on: January 06, 2021, 10:35:58 AM »
What a deal!

Bush2Beach has great Babaco cuttings!

A couple of pictures of my set up, can get up to 110+ in full sun at my site, and will get into the 100's in the GH due to the arrangement. Ventilation on N side, should be opposite but im limited by my access.

I put roll up sides on mine and leave both long sides and the back wide open for 6+ months a year.

I unfortunately didn't include hipboards on this greenhouse lol.  So I'm not sure I can do roll up sides unfortunately, haha. But I will be doing that on the newer ones I build out.

I recently built a 12x25 off the grid hoop house that I'm using at an area with no electricity.  I had previousy experience working with snap fans, which are DC Solar fans for greenhouses and installed one in my new spot.  It's honestly pretty great and I plan on building more hoop houses for in the ground tropical plantings on my super sunny and hot SW slope.  Highly reccomend although they are kind of expensive.

Awesome.

This is a format another seed seller uses:

I am definitely interested although I am having a hard time identifying which thread is which.

Have you successfully shipped packages into the US?

I also recommend checking out the forum rules about condensing posts into one thread to avoid spamming.

Thanks for making these available.

Hi Nate nice photos, btw I would have never thought that you could grow papaya outside in your area, what variety is it?                               Regards    Patrick

Thanks for the support everyone! Stoked to be able to share this awesome collection with everyone. 
I have a lot of success growing Babaco Papaya, Vasconcellea x pentagona , V. pubescens, V. palandensis, V. quercifolia and a few others!

Do you have any Paladensis for sale? I just donít have luck growing them from seeds lol!

Maybe soon. I have a few males and will be getting more seed soon. Once I have a M & F Pair i may start selling some!

Got my plants today, they are very healthy, couldn't be happier really.

thanks very much

Got my order today. Plants were much larger than expected, healthy and very well packaged. Everything arrived intact. Great communication. Thanks again :).

p.s. I just Love the jaboticaba sticker  :)

Glad to hear! Thank you both for your support!  Stoked to hear you dig the Jabo Sticker TnTrobbie!

And thank you ScottR! I'm hoping to be able to create a solid data base of information about all these plants that hopefully, eventually, will be a community based project!
I'm tempted by the Guabiyu - Myrcianthes Pungens. What kind of temperatures/light have these seedlings endured? I'm in Phoenix, where summers are extra brutal.
The seedlings have endured temperatures down to 33*F and done just fine with new growth completely undamaged!  I have two 7 foot tall Guabiju up against S facing walls so they get a ton of reflective heat and seem to be doing particularly great.  Seedlings have been getting mixed light but I've left some in full sun and they don't seem to be slowed down.  I'll be down in Phoenix over the holidays if you want to meet up and save on shipping!

I have used it a bunch and it's really awesome. Never had any delays and have really great rates.

Just got about 13 acres with 50 or so super sad avocados.  Going to be pimping it out with the thousands of rare subtropicals I've been accumulating.  Can't wait!

What are people's preferred or most optimal way to cool down a greenhouse?

I'm about to rebuild a 55 x 70 AgraTech Solar 18 with ridge vents and kind of am not too sure.

The currently accepted name is Vasconcellea palandensis.

Wish I could but I only have one male plant.

Nobody really knows on hardiness, I have a pretty soft winter where I am (might hit low 30's for a bit in winter) and it did well.

That's awesome! How large did the fruit get?

Appears to be hardy so far and it will definitely cross with V. pubescens.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Preferred irrigation in Orchard
« on: July 03, 2020, 10:01:02 AM »
I like spinners, Netafim Jr to be specific (not easy to find). The top reason is that I fertilize / improve the soil with compost and mulch and the rain provided by the spinner makes it decompose and penetrate over time. But I'm in SoCal with less natural rain than you... Also, I have hard well water and drip gets clogged over time and you can't really see that until the tree tells you and by then it's far too late. In the veggie garden I use drip and inject citric acid to keep it going plus replace about every 2 years, plus it's easier to see there... The thing I don't like about the spinners is that they tend to wet the trunk of the tree... Lots of considerations you have to weigh based on your specific requirements...

Thanks, good point about the compost and soil building. Decomposition definitely isn't happening quickly up here in the summer and it would be good to add some moisture to the system to assist in that during the hottest parts of the year.  It seems like spinners would probably be the way to go. I have high Iron and Mn so think that I'd probably have issues irrigating with drip.
