Can someone tell me of those cuttings which are easily rootable and which requires grafting?

Piper nigrum Black Pepper                                                         easily

Artocarpus heterophyllus Jakfruit amber, mai 3, orange crush          "       "     "
Morus nigra Mulberry tice + everbearing                                     easily
Eugenia luschnathiana Pitomba                                                  don't think so
Muntingia calabura Strawberry tree                                            probabily
Annona squamosa Sugar Apple big red (not seedling)                  don't think so

Agee, Great prices and reliable seller. 

List on page 1 updated.

A month after the last fruiting (scroll up for photo), more fresh Escarlates seeds: 

White Jaboticaba seeds, some ready + more to come.


"Wow. What a price difference. I am going to see if I am brave enough to go into The Boys to buy one"

It is dangerous just to drive by the Boys, as their cliental drives their cars as bad as their shopping carts. Steel toe shoes are recommended.

 About 1/2 inch of the crown intact:

I didn't notice (or know to looked for) seeds under the skin.  They were selling them individually but were packaged in boxes of two under the counter.

I got one at The Boys Farmer Market had last Sunday for $4.99 (without top).

It was low acid, but also not super sweet. Just kind of water down tasting pineapple. They said it was being grown in Puerto Rico, and was under their labeling (not Pinkglow).

Thanking everyone for their kind words of recommendation.

Heres some photos of my Escarlate fruiting heavy. This variety  almost never stops fruiting. Besides all the fruit on it now, zoom in to see new flowers forming again.

Mine also in perfect condition, nice size, and arrived fast. Here is a photo of them after repotting. 

Thanks again FruitFly. (Please don't visit my future fruits)

Sugar loaf white pineapple with edible core (not Kauai variety) $6.00 each.

Limited White Jades @ $8.00 each

Minimum order $10.00 + shipping.

Today I was shocked to find the first flowers on my Sapucaia and Rosa de Pescoço trees. These seedlings are only three years old. I am not aware of anyone who has fruiting trees of these varieties outside of Brazil. I can’t wait to taste them! My grafted ESALQ has also begun flowering but that variety has been fruiting in Florida for some time. It seems that Plinia phitrantha is a fast fruiting species. Doesn’t get much faster than 3 years from seed!

Rosa de Pescoço:

Congratulation on your flowering these seedlings in only three years! I also have a Rosa de Pescoço about the same age and was concerned about lanky growth habit, but see it's normal.  Thanks for posting.

Picked last Maha Chanok yesterday, have one Lemon Zest hanging, and a dozen+ Honey Kiss left.

John where you at Woodstock if so you may be my father. LOL

You know, it could have been possible.  That's the year I graduated from high school.   But NY is a long way from L.A., and I was working two jobs that summer.

John, you must have been really into your work, but not geography or summer of love, as the Woodstock festival was in NY state.

I just messaged you.
