I think Mangosteen, because when we hit 35 Deg. in Tampa my Guanabana died to the trunk.

Hi Joe I believe if you can peeled,it  is an Easy Peel possible Thai, I have several  Annonas Squamosas and most of them when they are ripe they are impossible to peel.

Hi Bruce  and Birn, I do not have a name, I had  the 1 Tree for over 20 years, the other 3 Trees for about 15 yrs.  My first Tree has been taken down to the ground by Freezes 3-4 times and it always comes back. Mike over at Down Under name them the Carcarlo, after my forum name.

Hi Petro, That's one of the Friendly's Bugs to have in your plants, I remember the first time I seen the Aphids on some of my Pepper plants ,I freaked out and started jerking them out, afterwards I started reading and got to understanding how to control them better.

Hi Sea Walnut yes they start Flowering at about 1 1/2 to 2 yrs. old but most don't set Fruit until Two + years unless the had an extremely great growing season. I have some with fruit that are two feet tall.

Great work Simon , I got to try to do this one.You should try to make a vid. so we can see  the angle cut & complete scion insertion and how the bark flap makes contact, please do!!

Hawk, how thick of cuttings are you using it on?? 
My preference when using Buddy Tape is that I don't like to wrap the union with any other tape that does not let the union breath like Buddy Tape does, I usually use a piece of Ph. wire or a clothes pin to keep it tight. IT WORKS FOR ME!!!  AND THEN AGAIN DO WHAT WORKS FOR U!
 
Ed let us know how that tool works, I have looked at it several times, but  it seem to me that the 13/16'' +- would not be long enough

Hi Tib, I think you should be able to squeeze them in that 20Ft space, my neighbors is only about 10-12Ft , but he keeps it trimed, and if you cant find room for them, I have some room here in Tampa, lol

Acheta, I have heard that the Funk is something else, I will try it someday, but growing a Plant that holds a Fruit that huge I don,t think I have room for, and as long as they are .79 cents a lbs. you cant beat that.
 I have seem some in this same market that are 30lbs.
Pan, I don't blame you for the funk, i myself have a weak stomach.
Coach, maybe they remind you of those sneakers laying around in the locker rooms, lol.

Have a Great Memorial Day Weekend

Wow, that's crazy cheap for jackfruit. It's 2$ / pound here. Sometimes 3$.

One of these days I will try one of these!!! I have no ideal if I would like it, but I see a lot of people buying them, some are 20 +  pounders.

These are impossible to control, around here most people cut the trees down. Bad for the Birds! but they keep replanting new ones.
Those seeds sprout anywhere.
