Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Canistel experiment

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Canistel experiment
« on: August 11, 2019, 07:10:31 AM »
First report on my Canistel experiment.

I grew 2 seedlings from a friends fruit planted about 3 years ago. Fruit were small sweet and moist but i read canistel is not true to type. I planted both in the one hole and about 2 years ago grafted wood from mature ĎLyndallí tree.

More recently ( 4-5 months ago) I grafted some of the branches with 2 other varieties, tipped the seedling leader at 1.5m leaving only 2 branches of the original seedling.
Both the ĎLyndallí and seedling tree are similar size (though quite different shape)  but what has surprised me is it is the seedling that is flowering first not the grafted tree.
There is plenty more to go in this experiment, not least of which will be the quality of this fruit if any set.

Much appreciated Simon! Yeah still a few more cool nights to come Down Under, maybe down around 40 F so I will leave it for now.

I have a young Erdon Lee lychee, maybe 3í tall which is flowering all over. Any suggestions as to how best to manage this? I want the tree to put its energy into growing, perhaps let it set fruit then pick off?

Uffr, just wondering if you made any progress with information on Red Ball

Cheers Sleepdoc, I reckon mine must be a chance next season. I have also grafted a couple of Lucís scions from a tree that has produced its first fruit onto my Achacha, will be interesting to watch how this develops

Hey Sleepdoc how tall, thick is the trunk on your tree?. I have one that must be getting close, I have topped it at about 8í so canít tell how tall it would be but is about 4Ē thick at base

I have a small beetle that helps out for me, but hand pollinating certainly increases production though especially in the fringe months

Yeah Rob, I refrigerate my pollen, usually only lasts a day for me. Sometimes it is not long enough but often it is, I have 40+ fruits due to start ripening in a few weeks, at first I was worried I had over done it, but as it turns out the tree is handling it well. Best of luck

Rob you write in the past tense, what happened to your tree. I have one similar age to your espaliered tree which is now holding about 35 fruits. Not sure what iíll do with them all.

These are from a mature cutting that originally came from seed directly from Ecuador. At the risk of getting something incorrect (hate speaking for someone else) i believe Steve sampled the fruit and described it as very sweet, tasted like lemonade. This is probably as close as we can expect to get here in Aus, Hope this helps

Yes I believe I have a couple, still too small to fruit yet though. Get in touch with Stevo (Steve T) on this forum he may have some

Thanks for your response Simon! I have a Sabara with 2 rootstocks, still only small but growing about twice as fast as single.
Still early days for me, oldest grafts a bit over a year old, most much more recent and so far iím finding grafts onto Grimal are advancing way faster than grafts on Sabara. It will be interesting to watch their progress!

« on: February 18, 2019, 09:23:15 PM »
Hi all, I have recently grafted a bunch of Jaboticabas (about 10 varieties) onto 5 different rootstocks and am interested to hear others experience of how multi-grafted trees go in the medium to long term.

Thanks Orkine, I had read that thread in the past and must admit found it as confusing on my second read. I canít imagine iím The first to try, but will report back if I have any success

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Soursop on Rollinia?
« on: February 03, 2019, 04:12:04 PM »
The information is probably on here somewhere but I thought it quicker to ask. Has anyone tried and succeeded with grafting soursop onto Rollinia rootstock? I had a couple of spare scions and it was either try it or waste them.

Felipe is yours a seedling or grafted? How old till it started fruiting?

Must admit I canít make out the black Sapote issue from the photo, their stems do turn from green to quite dark naturally. My guess with the Jackfruit is just a bit chilly, my small plants donít love winter, should start to pick up with the warmer weather

Some of the Garcinias are worth considering

Is the seedless variety out there and available somewhere Mike?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Erdon Lee Lychee Availability in Australia
« on: September 09, 2018, 06:01:50 AM »
There seems to be a bunch of new varieties out with not much info about them. Makes it tough to do your homework ;)

Ulfr do you know much about the quality of fruit that Red Ball produces? I believe they get to a reasonable size as well

I hope you have better luck with yours Rob, not sure if thatís the yellow I got from you but mine turned out to look just the same as my regular yellow mega. Only had one fruit last season and it was good, fortunately I like the regular yellows anyway

Thatís nice growth Rob, mine is about 5í with a 2Ē trunk. Pretty looking tree

Hi Rob, is yours a grafted or seedling star apple? I have a seedling about 4 years old but no idea how long it may take to flower.
