Bastard Oleaster is just another common name (like Soh Shang) for Elaeagnus latifolia.

Thanks Jungle Yard, I was unaware of the change in classification. Very interesting!

It’s been a month since I first noticed it flowering. It sure does take it’s time for the flowers to mature enough to open...



...also, new flowers are forming above the initial flowers...

Most of what I see here as landscaping plants are Philodendron bipinnatifidum not Monstera deliciosa. They do look similar...

Yup, first one is definitely a walnut.

The second one is a Mahonia of some sort, possibly oregon grape.

If you zoom in on the image you can see that is old damage on the leaf.

There are plum x peach hybrids...
There are plum x cherry hybrids...

Maybe a cross of those for a plum x peach x plum x cherry then from there, back to cherry and peach...etc. until you have a mostly peach x cherry with a small amount of plum.

UC Riverside was awarded a grant to study a small Chinese wasp that may predate on it. Hopefully it can be nipped in the bud before it infests California.

I got mine via...
http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/diospyros-texana-texas-persimmon-seeds

They seem to be sold out at the moment, but Iím sure they will have more once they are back in season.
I had 100% germination rate. Though two later died for unknown reasons.

Mine, that is flowering is a Lķcuma de seda/moist type. The small seedings are a mystery to me, were just labeled as ďlucumaĒ.

 I have two small seedling lucuma ďtwinsĒ that came from one seed, that I just split-up and repotted. These are a year or two old (I didnít plant the seed, I bought it already growing in the pot), they are about 8 inches tall.
 I could see the remnants of the seedís shell that the two trees were coming from when I detangled and separated them, so Iím sure they were from just the one seed.

I was surprised to see mine start flowering so soon, iíve read that it can take 12-15 years from seed to fruit. I have my fingers crossed that I get one this first year.

My lucuma that I started from seed in 2014 is flowering for the first time. Does anyone else here have any experience with seedling lucumas? How was your fruit-set the first year flowering? Did any hold?

Little update: Mine are showing thorns now, no flowers/fruit... got hit kinda hard by last years heatwave, but bounced back and growing strong now.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Pineapple from seed?
« on: June 29, 2019, 08:32:18 PM »
This one I grew form a seed from a store-bought pineapple.
Curiously if you notice, the earlier leaves that came out were toothed, but now as it gets older it is getting less and less teeth.

Thatís a future pineapple plantation just on the top of that one pineapple fruit!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Tradewind Fruit Psidium seeds
« on: June 28, 2019, 07:01:14 AM »
For what it’s worth... My Psidium eugeniaefolia - Purple Forest Guava are from seed I bought from Trade Winds Fruit. (They are fruiting for the first time this year.) I don’t remember now how many seeds came in the package or what the ratio of sprouted seed/die-off was. I do have three adult plants now.
That is the only Psidium seeds I grew out from them.

Ahh, missed that... I was doing a little research on some other eugenias and saw that fruit and thought of your plant right away.
Might be that they were next to each other and he accidentally picked it up instead of a cotrg. Either way youíve got yourself a cool plant!

Link is opening as ftp instead of http, that is your problem... if I manually change it to http it loads

You should do some air layering of that baby... that is a nice chunky cotrg, plus I love that red new growth.
Put me on your list 😀

« on: June 24, 2019, 02:53:34 PM »
Hmmm... true. Maybe it is a naturally occurring hybrid between a cotrg and another eugenia? Maybe just an interesting cotrg showing genetic diversity. Do you know if it was grown from seed?
