  I want a large flavorful fruit that in non astringent.

If you could find rojo brillante in the USA that will be a great cultivar to have. The fruit is large and non astringent.

see the video

Get a product that contain chelated elements Like zinc edta or fe edta, etc. They are supposed to have a better absorption rate.

You could also add a wetting agent or surfactant to maximize your fertilization regime.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sunshine or Sancheen Mango
« on: November 13, 2018, 03:49:19 PM »
A few days ago my local Nursery sent me a message and telling he got two new mango varieties. He got Coconut Mango (could be coconut cream mango, maybe) and another variety called sunshine or sansheen mango (sorry it was written in Arabic). so....

My question is, Does anyone in here grow or know anything about Sunshine or Sancheen Mango ?.

It could be damping off or root rot. Make sure the top soil is dry before watering. You could also add a layer of pure peat moss at the top of soil to minimize fungi problems.

Cheena is also called Chempjack. It is a hybrid between Jackfruit and Cempedak.

Check Han Sen topic.

Does anyone in here have a picture of Desert king Dragon Fruit from Israel ?.

Because I bought a red fleshed Dragon Fruit and it seems like it is a hybrid between yellow and red Dragon Fruit.

This stuff remind me of crushed sea corals and seashells that you can find near the coastline.

I did exactly that. where did you get methyl eugenol? I bought from Amazon. I soaked cotton ball and wrapped in plastic wrap, then made few holes so the chemical doesnt evaporate. so far I have not seen any fly in there.

You probably have a different species of fruit fly. I bought methyl eugenol from ebay and from the local agricultural supplier and they all worked fine. The smell of methyl eugenol remind me of crushed tulsai/basil leaf.

I believe methyl-eugenol only works with Oriental Fruit Fly and Mediterranean fruit fly, if i remember correctly.


I use this trap with a cotton ball soaked in methyl eugenol. It works really well in attracting Mediterranean fruit fly (male).

Another great Purchase. Thanks man.  ;)

Nangcem(orange flesh) seeds added

What is the difference between Nangcem(orange flesh) and Cempedak "Nangcem" / Cempejack / CH17 (see the link below) ?. and which one is better in your opinion ?.

I received Seashore mangosteen from Mr Han and got 100% germination rate.

I highly recommend him.

Thanks for the ID Moh'd.  I just cracked open 3 stones and got 2 whole seeds.  I hope they are not damaged.  I have placed them on top of the soil as Useful Tropical Plants say it needs light to germinate.  If they germinate successfully, I might try to exchange them with other members, instead of trying to send whole stone  ;D

Ziziphus Mauritiana seedling does not grow true to the mother tree and seedlings are usually inferior to named cultivar similar to date palm. Get a grafted Ziziphus Mauritiana plant, trust me.

However, Ziziphus spina-christi can be grown from seeds and the fruits are really good almost as good as the mother tree even for a seedling.

It is Ziziphus Mauritiana or Indian Sedr as we call it in here. Some cultivar is as large as a small apple.

We use Ziziphus spina-christi aka Christ's thorn jujube (it is also called sedr) as a rootstock for Ziziphus Mauritiana.

For me. June plum taste like green/unripe mango. I really like it.

Spondias purpurea, is also a fast producer but you need to propagate it from a cutting.

How are the seeds doing of the Tadal.
I was too late last year to order direct and I asked you if you had any and
I think you told me you already planted them? Isn't this rambutan suppose to
be able to handle frost and is from N India?

Another Nephelium species that might be interesting is Bulala. Oscar, should give you more info.


When are you going to re-open your store ?.

Bulata (Nephelium phillippinensis) is indeed vigorous, but i doubt it is cold hardy. But not sure, i could be wrong. BTW bulala is good rootstock for pulasan. So that might be better tried in Florida for pulasan. It's hard to get species that are compatible with pulasan.
Good news! Looks like the eruption in our area is over. Working on reopening the seed page right now. Will be for sure done by tomorrow, maybe earlier.

Thanks Oscar.

I believe you usually have Nephelium phillippinensis seeds in April/May. right ?.

I hope the casualties are really minimum.

The good news is both the UAE and Qatar have send relief aids, hopefully it will arrive very soon to you guys.

Thanks for the info Ethan.

Soon, I will try Mango on marula, just waiting for the weather to get a little better. The Canopus star (Suhail Star) can be easily seen by the naked eye and arrived earlier than I expected so the winter will arrive early too.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Good rootstock for Abiu ?.
« on: August 20, 2018, 03:49:15 PM »

I was wondering if someone has successfully grafted abiu onto another Pouteria species ?.

I highly doubt anyone can help you since these trees are rare even in their natural habitat.
