Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Re: Grand Frost Lemon
« on: November 07, 2020, 01:51:01 PM »
In Europe you can't because there isn't one. Only know about the taste and hardiness from what I've read - ordinary lemon taste but cold hardy to -8 C. In my micro-location, it goes right about there.

That makes us two

Ok guys thanks for the explanation, now the question is does anyone have some seeds because I am willing to buy. The only thing is I am located in EU and this lemon originates from the USA, but for the seeds that won't pose a problem.

Hello, I am wondering does this lemon comes true to type from seeds? And if so, I would like to acquire some seeds from anyone who grows it. Thanks

Does anyone from EU has Martinenca Rimada fig cuttings (it looks like Panache striped fig but once mature it changes color to red). Please let me know, thanks in advance. Peter

I have also read about cold hardy avocados like Fantastic, that might grow in my zone outdoors. Any thoughts?

Don't know either, but I think I saw somewhere on eBay guy selling scions but it was long time ago. It will have to wait a week or two anyway because I cant order online anything right now - some hacker got my credit card info (dont know how) and I must wait till my bank issues me a new card for online ordering.

Guys thanks for your help I really appreciate it, out of these mentioned fruits I will definitely search for strawberry guava and white sapote seeds. I will research a little more about sapodilla as well. As for pink guava it really looks great in your greenhouse but unfortunately greenhouse is not an option, at least for me.

SeaWalnut - you grow pink guava outdoors in ground or in pot?
johnb51 - no I have never eaten white sapote, but I have read it's fantastic, don't know its fruiting time but will search for seeds

My favourite from the fruits you mentioned is strawberry guava although fruits are somewhat small (but ordinary guava cant be grown here outdoors I guess).

Hi, I dont know if this question was previously answered somewhere in this forum but I will ask anyway. From your experience what is (are) tropical fruit trees that can handle zone 9a. Most of the time winter temps dont go below -5C, but on occasion it can go lower (depending on how hard winter is that year). So if you know what will successfully grow in my area please write, especially if you are in this zone and have attempted growing some tropical fruits. Thanks.

That is why I am interested in it - allegedly cold hardy. And a few stores in USA sell it, but none in EU (as far I searched).

Looking for Harvey lemon seeds or cuttings in EU to buy. Thanks in advance

Tropical Fruit Discussion / My avocado grown from seed (store bought)
« on: August 16, 2019, 10:10:24 AM »
This is avocado my wife bought in store, and I decided to take out the seed and try to germinate it. This is the result.

I forgot mine outside when we had the 16F freeze, it had major twig die back but recovered.
Laaz, were you also talking about finger limes or...

23
From what I have read just as a regular lime but more sweeter, and juicy too.

24
Mine are still seedlings but someday will try to grow them outdoors in sheltered space and see what happens. I have read somewhere they can take up to -10 degrees Celsius. Looking for that particular site now and cant seem to find it now.

Hi Luisport, thanks for answering. In my area we get those temperatures every few years. Shouldnt be a problem then growing them outdoors.
