Wow Mike they look delicious! Do they also have an intense smell while still whole?

What a beauty!

I believe they need light to germinate.

From seed it is tough in CA. Peter is right, shade/semi shade and humidity. A gentleman in OR has a plant he purchased growing happily in his greenhouse.

Nice looking new growth, are you going to build a cold frame for winter?

Thanks Ethan maybe we can do lunch next time yr in the area

Would love to grab another Cubano and mamey bebida!

So long as the plants you are bringing back are not prohibited,  the USDA inspects them at the airport, give you a sticker and you are good to go. You can bring back certain fruits too including jack! Unfortunately,  I don't think durian is on the list. :(

You can bring soiless plants through USDA inspection station at the airport.  :)

Wow JF, beautiful fruits! Enjoy your retirement my friend, congrats.

Jardines Eneida's!

Great plants, fruit stand and really nice people!

Good luck Evilfruit! I've been testing various artocarpus sp. on jack rootstock. Who knows, maybe p.limpato on jack or breadnut might work. It for sure won't work if you don't try!

BTW, I've been told artocarpus bud grafting is the way to go. I've only tried cleft/wedge and approach.

Stick it in the ground next Spring, back where you had bananas growing. If you give it winter protection, you will get a prettier tree and better chance of fruit.

Nice job Newgen! Give it a try, Flying Fox fruited one in a pot.

Great job Mark!

Beautiful tree JF! Maybe give it some winter protection for a few years until it gets some size. The foliage (not roots) on my biggest potted marang does ok into the mid to low 40F? If it happens to get colder, I've had die back up to 1/2" in size but resprouts when the weather warms. I've been toying with planting one here in a an easily protected spot.

Btw, marang and elasticus seem hardier than pedalai.

Thank you Sunworshiper, I think I may finally plant mine in the ground, next spring. My fruits are just starting to turn pink! :)

Great job Simon, it'll be interesting to watch it grow and fruit!

Wow Future, sounds like you had a great adventure! Hopefully you brought the seeds home for yourself.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Patinoa almirajo anyone growing it?
« on: July 12, 2018, 06:21:06 PM »
Great info, thank you!

I have 4 seedlings around a year old that are growing moderately well for me in deep 2.8 gallon pots. They stay warm to hot all year, in a humidity greenhouse with 20% shade cloth and receives sun from the early morning until around 1:00. They get watered 2-3 times a week with regular hose water and a pinch of palm tree fertilizer once a month.

Hopefully I'll continue to be lucky!

Thank you guys, they are both good growers for me but space for growing is an issue. I might try grafting them onto another variety, then I can have the varieties without needing their own place.
