Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Mango Top working Suggestions
« on: May 02, 2020, 01:04:04 PM »
Hey Sayid,

I like the Pina colada option, less vigorous pretty good production from what Iíve seen at tropical acres, plus delicious mango to boot. If you have Instagram here is a video I posted on my ďless vigor Franken-mango sex experimentĒ  tree I recently grafted white piri, jehangir, Pina colada onto a NDM this tree is next to my neighbors Carrie. The goal is to have all these less vigorous trees cross pollinate and hopefully produce seedlings of less vigorous bush like growth habit. Most likely will throw some ice cream mango scions in the mix as time goes forward. https://www.instagram.com/tv/B_sVrlDgyP9KS9FLOh5zMC6UXio57pbhu2dzv80/?igshid=e9vmku44iioj

Thanks

Nice tree :)

How long has the tree been in the ground?  I have a tree that I will plant in the next few weeks; trying to find the best spot for it in my yard.

Think late summer of 2019.

Hey JF,

Can you please elaborate on what exactly your hybrid saramuyo is? Just stating that your hybrid saramuyo looks like itís sugar apple x reticulata or reticulata x sugar apple as it looks likes the seedlings that I sprouted of which you gave me. This John painter hybrid is of reticulata and cherimoya which is why it looks different. Also on the cherilata which was pollen parent?

Havenít seen any bees one these flowers just black ants 24/7 night and day, think they might be the main pollinators? Nonetheless impressed with quality of camera on iPhone 7+ still going strong 😂

So I,m looking up the Ambika mango and sulcata groves did a review of the Ambika mango but I think they may have had a bad one with physiological disorder ,when ever someone says pumpkin and carrot flavor that's a red flag.The link below contains that review and added bonus of ambika the actress?




https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?fr=opensearch&p=Ambika+mango#action=view&id=9&vid=29ddca5bb88920bf0525bdb6b7f29ed8

I have not had ambika mango yet, but as in ďbrahm Kai meuĒ mango is strongly of carrot, parsnip in maha chanock, and last year I experienced those plus pumpkin in P22....I would say itís not out of question. Could always be a one off when eating just one mango to your point also.

I have been hitting zills up for two years once weekly during season and every time just miss the cotton candy mango... so definitely on my list. Would like to try again bolt, emerald. Just longing for more sugar loaf, fruit punch and the ice creams coming due on my tree soon.

...just to add I tried to graft the bottom piece and I failed, tried again with another slightly longer piece from another fruit just sticking it in a pot to root and it worked. Just another option incase like me your grafting skills arenít good.

Hey guys awesome video,

Few questions: 1) which was female and male parents? 2) does this hybrid have fuzzy skin and leaves like grimal? 3) when you planted the hybrid seed how long did it take to fruit?

Thanks

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Germinating Jabos and Eugenias
« on: April 08, 2020, 10:06:36 PM »



I saw this is how Pete kanaris germinates his jabos, I bought mine off amazon search germination humidity dome or some variation of those words. I purchased the Jabo sampler from the for sale section recently from FLNATIVE which was an incredible deal to not just sample the various flavors but also to plant the seeds! Just bought some azeda seeds or plinia oblongata tonight from achetadomestica also in buy section to add to the dome.

Good luck

I love the way Lisa looks and I get some ďberries in creamĒ notes when I eat them, but Iíve had two die on me now for reasons unknown and I think I recall reading somewhere on the forum where Lisa is known to have branch die back when pruned 🤔 As far as geffner goes I donít have one but friends that do donít have any issues and I definitely agree with Skahnís subacid background tartness is delicious with geffner. I havenít had dream or PPC yet but hear they are delicious, also Excalibur has seedling PPC trees last I was there which isnít same as PPC...some people donít care thatís fine too.

-joe

Hey Jonah,

Do you have any pictures of the fruit that your PPC produced? Also from the PM x PPC? I ask because I am interested in buying these scions, though only reservation is that there are many seedling PPC that is not true PPC so just wondering what the fruit from your tree looks like.

Thanks

Hey Forum,

Very happy to say after 5 years my oro negro is finally flowering, Iím stoked though noticed much yellowing leaves. Should I be worried, is this normal behavior when flowering? My buddy has an avocado, unknown type but raging flowering and heís got yellowing leaves too 🤷‍♂️

Hey,

I bought 10 seeds from seed pirates last fall, they were calling them ďintense pink.Ē I ran my own mini experiment. The seeds came with instructions on how to germinate, evidently with illama they naturally experience a dry dormancy period after fruiting so it is said on the instructions by seed pirates to wait few months before planting so six seeds I kept in ziplock bag on office table at room temp, I have also seen this mentioned by Har before. I have also read the comments of people saying plant fresh seeds so here is what I did. I couldnít wait to plant some so placed 4 in coco coir on seed tray on vivid sun heating pad (purchased off amazon ~15$) ...these seeds ended up rotting. Then after four months I tried again this time I lightly scarified 3 seeds with a dremel cutting tool to test the ďcrackingĒ method. I soaked 3 scarified seeds in peroxide and 3 plain seeds in peroxide. Planted each separately in moist coco coir in ziplock bags placed on heating pad. All 6 germinated BUT the dremel scarified seeds germinated the fastest.





Here is an ex of the precision scarification you can do with a dremel, in the pic a sugar apple seed. I prefer this method to scarify besides sand paper or pliers.

Hope this helps.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pitangatuba vs Pitomb
« on: March 09, 2020, 08:15:03 PM »
Hey Forum,

Recently acquired a pitangatuba plant though I have never tried the fruit, curious to know how this stacks up against pitomba (which Iíve had) taste wise?
