Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Another Inga ID
« on: September 07, 2019, 10:05:17 PM »
Hey all! Was wondering what species inga this is? Looks like the last one on Weird Fruit Explorerís taste test. My old boss said heíd give me some pods from his tree and that it was sweeter then others that he has tried. I expected him to bring feuillei or spectabilis as that seems to be the most common here, but he brought me these. He didnít know the name as he told me it was an old type that was just called Inga when he got it decades ago. Any ideas?

Inga Feuillei,inga spectabilis.Not I Edulis .

Hmm Iím leaning toward Feuillei. Itís hard to ID because it seems they all seem to get labeled edulis or feuillei in searches.

We have them growing wild here. Itís considered a weed here and we cut it down for animal feed and to keep it from falling on our structure haha! Iím not sure what species it is but the fruits are very hard and dry. I hear you can make a flour substitute with it but never tried. I wish we had the gummy bear one you have.

Interested in the U. grandiflora! Iíve had mines about that long too and they havenít popped either. Hopefully it works.

« on: April 19, 2019, 01:16:48 AM »
If you ask more specific questions i will try to answer them.


Thanks so much! I guess the things I want to know is
1. can I email the shipper the green and yellow labels to place on the shipment?
2. How do I pay or how has everyone been setting up the shipping from Aphis to me?
3. The things that must be included in the shipment envelop.

Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response! Was busy with work.

1. can I email the shipper the green and yellow labels to place on the shipment?

Yes you can email it to them. Just make sure they print it in color and in same size as original and use it as address label on your package.

2. How do I pay or how has everyone been setting up the shipping from Aphis to me?

If you are using USPS most APHIS offices will forward for free. Ask your office to make sure as it seems to vary. If you are using FedEx, UPS or other private courier, then you need to have an account with them so that APHIS can charge it to your account.

3. The things that must be included in the shipment envelop.

Your import permit. A list of the seeds included, preferably in alphabeltical order by latin names. An invoice. Place of origin of all the seeds, and the name of the collector. All these things are carefully spelled out in your import permit. Take the time to read it carefully.

Got it! Thanks so much for taking the time to clear that up! It is a HUGE help! Btw all the inga seeds you sent germinated! Thanks again!

Despite all the previous discussion about this, I don't blame anyone for being confused even after reading it all. Much bad advice in previous threads. I just ordered seeds from someone who supposedly was experienced with the APHIS protocol and still they put the labels inside the box!

Thanks! Iíve been noticing that too.. hopefully i can get it sorted. I need more plants lol!

Not trying to show you a lack of aloha here, but if you do a search in the above search box, enter "small lots seed" and search with google, you should find a ton of hits.  This topic has seen a LOT of previous discussion.

John

No worries. Slowly weeding through the threads and figuring it out. Man youíd think there would be a checklist of some sort on the aphis site. Maybe there is and I just keep missing it. I find a lot of the links just take you back to the same pages.

Hi everyone! Iím trying to figure out exactly what are the steps to import some seeds in to the USA as figuring out the steps off the aphis website is kinda confusing. I figured somebody on this forum does it so I just wanted some tips as to what I should do or have the shippers do. Thanks again!

« on: March 10, 2019, 04:06:07 PM »
Yes, looks like Inga. This is in Hawaii? That is not an uncommon tree and primates do spread seeds!

Yep in Hawaii. I havenít seen any growing wild on our premises and The planter is in the middle of our facility. It really mustíve been dropped here by a primate (human) haha! I guess we get a lot of plant clubs come through and someone mustíve brought a Bean for a snack or something. Either way I dug it out and am taking it home. I was just thinking about getting another one and the universe provides lol!

« on: March 10, 2019, 04:46:16 AM »
Hi so I found this plant just randomly growing in a decorative planter at work and I swear it looks like my ice cream Bean tree. Itís a public park and the planter is next to a pavilion so maybe someone threw a seed in. Kinda seems unlikely though. Any ideas?

Kyle

show me the closest gas station to my location

Just checking if you got my order. Itís weird cuz I donít see it in my sent box.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Annona disease ID?
« on: December 19, 2018, 02:05:02 PM »
I had a similar issue with my sugar apple seedlings when they first popped up. I found it was a very tiny black  worm/caterpillar chewing lines in the leaves. Your problem looks nearly the same and I would be it is a insect eating the leaf.
Yes, it is a leaf miner.

Try an Azadirachtin-cpntaining product, on the leaves and drenched into the soil.  If there is still a live larva there, the Azadirachtin will prevent the larva from molting.
Won't fix any damage already done.
Fungicide would definitely work and letting soild dry out is also key to keep it from spreading.

Thanks to everyone for all the responses. I will implement all the advice and hopefully save some of the seedlings. I will let you guys know how it went! :D

Argh, that sucks! My best guess is that it could be: Cylindrocladium leaf spot disease. There are multiple types of this disease.
Likely a virus

Aw shucks I kinda had a feeling from the way it was spreading... any tips on treatment or I guess it might be containment at this point. Still have some seedlings unaffected.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Annona disease ID?
« on: December 14, 2018, 11:45:21 PM »
Hi I was wondering if anyone here can help me ID this condition. It seems to only be affecting my annona seedlings. So far has hit my purple sugar apples, cherimoya, atemoya and Rollinia seedlings. Starts off as yellow lines on the leaves which turn black. Eventually the leaf crumpled up, dissecates, and falls off. Thank you guys again!

What is the best way to germinate these? Paper towel, straight to pot? Has anyone done a Gibberellic acid soak? I potted up a few seeds but havenít seen any come up yet. Been about 3 weeks.
