Tropical Fruit Discussion / To cut Lychee flowers?
« on: July 24, 2020, 05:42:57 PM »
I have a young Erdon Lee Lychee which is flowering, the tree is too small to hold fruit. Has anyone had experience with cutting flowers when first appearing or waiting till small fruit set before cutting?

The leaves on my Lucís certainly surprised me with their size

Hi Queenbee, sounds like the same mix up that confused me for a long time. They have somehow mixed up Coronata with Costada (understandable perhaps). It was a happy mistake for me as the Coronata (Not that they say which Coronata it is) take ages to fruit from seed and as you have discovered the Phitrantha Costada is extremely quick off the mark for a jabo. Enjoy

Appreciate hearing  your experience Peter. Mine (only have one) has been in the ground for a similar length of time to yours, slow as well but not in an ideal position, quite shaded. Iíll be moving in a year or so, and want to take it with me so really happy it marcotts ok. This marcott has a section grafted onto it from another tree so if they are dioecious at least I have some kind of chance for fruit

Anyone with Lemon Zest able to confirm if this looks like typical new growth?

The leaves do have a citrusy smell as well. Itís from LZ seed sent to a friend here in Australia, so Iím trying as best I can to confirm trueness to type

Looks like these take really well to the air layering process

So Jack did you find it a late variety just compared to other avocados in your area? That is if you had something to compare it with

Nice to hear a little first hand feedback Jack, do you recall if it was early, mid or late season for you? I am trying to spread my harvest as long as possible

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Melicoccus oliviformis Air Layer
« on: February 08, 2020, 06:14:07 AM »
Thought some might find this interesting, I have one tree grown from seed of this Supposed dwarf, self-fertile Melicoccus oliviformis. Hopefully this air layering attempt works well as I have no other way to propagate it that I can think of, until it fruits of course.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Digging up inground trees
« on: February 07, 2020, 05:06:05 PM »
Appreciate the feedback SW and FVF, my back up plan for the Lucís is to marcott some largish branches on my Achacha, then graft onto them, I have had good results grafting Lucís to Achacha. I will try digging up the jaboticabas in winter and give them a heavy trim

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Digging up inground trees
« on: February 07, 2020, 03:44:41 PM »
Iím wondering if anyone has experience with digging up garcinias to move to a different location. I have 2 Lucís about 3í tall and growing well but there is a strong possibility I may be moving in 12 months and I would like to take them if thereís a reasonable chance of survival.
I have a few jaboticabas as well about the same size which i am hoping will be somewhat easier

Must admit I am somewhat surprised to see this Cambuca slowly establishing itself on one branch of a mature Sabara.

First time I have tried a double stone graft (Simon you have inspired me to try this) showing signs of life after 1.5 weeks. The scion is from a seedling Sweet Tart (cheers MR) so hopefully weíll see how it shapes up down under.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: How do commercial guava growers do it?
« on: October 26, 2019, 04:50:41 PM »
I keep my guavas at 3-4í tall, donít fertilise much, throw a net with a zip sewn in over the tree after fruit set. I cannot get through all the fruit these little trees produce

I grafted some Lucís wood onto one of my achachaís, after 6 months or so it has decided to flower
