Very cool Simon. Will you leave or remove the paper clip? If you leave the clip, would it cause damage to the tree in the long run?

excellent work Simon. I am surprised the extra roostock would shorten the juvenile stage this quick. I have a sabara in ground from a 15 gal for almost five years. Its close to eight feet tall and the trunk about the size of my ankel and no fruit. Do you see flower buds emerging on the main trunk as well or is it mostly at the end of the branches?

Slightly off topic. Do you guys know what’s the longan variety called from Florida that has large fruit with thick brown skin?

Hi Patrick. I like them slightly under ripe with a slight shade of light green. When fruit starts to develop a shade of white/yellow, it loses a lot of that crispy texture but the fruit develops that tropical guava flavor and it becomes much sweeter.

Sorry Simon. I've been top working trees that are in ground only. I stopped grafting onto stand alone trees after Mimosa stopped selling seedings for $5 bucks.

If you like big, crunchy and sweet guavas, this is it. Crystal is the best guava, this variety fruits all season long. It is so good that i had to top worked all of my guava trees to this variety. Get yours before it is too late.

Thanks for the scions xue :)

If you like big crispy you need guava Pen....and if you like more sweet and crispy you need from taiwan. I buy 2 times crystal guava in Singapore and has no taste, nothing.

No idea what you’re talking about. Everyone who tried my fruit loved it. I was even able to convince mom guava eaters to plant one after trying it. Both fruit and trees are high demand.

Still have some left, Xue? I'd need 8 scions as guava is super hard to graft. Let me know and I'll send the Paypal.


Hey Thera,

I still got some that I could prune and send later today.

Thanks Socal0b

No international shipping for now.sorry.

Guavas and other trees have much higher success rate when grafted onto young tender shoots.

Pick up in Rosemead during the day.

Most sought after crunchy Asian guava. It is sweet, tart and the crispiest guava I ever had. 95% of the guava trees I have has been top worked to Crystal seedless. Local nurseries are selling 5 gal trees for $90-$120 if you can even find them. 

Also the most prolific seedlessvbearer. Bears fruit in clusters. Must thin to get bigger fruits. Most of the crunchy seedless guavas are shy bearers.

$5 ea. minimum 4 scions. Shipping is $3.5 for first class or $7.5 for priority mail. Paypal is shenxue@gmail.com. Please send as friend or family.

Socal10b is an honest and down to earth person  ;D. You won’t be disappointed! He also has the healthiest looking MULTIPLE rootstocked avocado trees I have ever seen.

I just grafted some Wilson Seedless scions. From what I read they make a larger amount of cukes. Fuerte is another one that makes the cukes which I think is just poor pollination and they are small size.

Hey Josh,

How is the oil content and flavor on the Wilson Seedless?

14
Still have plenty of buddy tape and tie tape available for those who messaged me.

15
Cool. Thanks. I think a couple of locals ordered during the grafting demo.

16
Yes. Plz pm me with what you are looking for

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Rootstock for atemoya
« on: December 17, 2017, 12:31:57 AM »
Atemoya rootsrocks works just as well as cherimoya for me. Seedlings of atemoyas are also vigorous. Especially african pride and geffner

18
These giant yellow df are so good. how long does it take to fruit from seeds? I bought two fruits and planted some seeds.

I have Frankie's red grafted onto undulatus. the plant grew about five feet since it was grafted earlier this year. Not sure if this is a good growth rate.

19
1-2 years until it has enough body mass to bear fruit.

20
Frankies red is also very good. It has a very refreshing grassy aroma. Especially when chilled.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Unusual fruiting of Papaya
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:21:34 PM »
I've seen people drive a long rusty nail on the bottom of the trunk of a male papaya and this will stress them into changing sex and produce fruit a month or two later.

22
I tried one of the asuntas but don't remember the number. It was very good for me even though the fruit was a runt and slightly under ripe. Its white flesh with coconut overtones. Very unique trait that I have never tried in dragon fruit.

23
I saw some online postings on face book where the thick flesh is red, crispy, and the rag is red and completely edible. I would like to know if there are any officially named cultivars that have these traits

Dolores is a sweet & tart guava they've topped at 18 brix that on the high side for a guava. I prefer Jalisco rojo as a dessert guava but Dolores is a superb guava for guava shell. I will offer scions and cutting in March during my annona scion sale. I believe Dolores is the only Red seedless guava around if anyone can find others please post

I think Robert has a red seedless Taiwanese variety. This is a small grafted tree that hasn't fruited yet.
