Hi Vipin, is this tape biodegradable?

Yes, dear friend :-). It starts to degrade in few days, after contact with water.

Very cheap, $AU8 for three rolls, free shipping from Hong Kong.
Thanks for the link vipinrl

 :). Shipping time may be longer than usual (3 to 8 weeks), as the Hong Kong postal service is very slow.

New leaves will emerge in 1-2 months. If you do not limit watering to once in a week or so, seedlings will die due to root rot.
I had 2 year old seedlings. Sadly they died when exposed to hot sun.

It may not be good(?) as the other one; but, relatively very cheap. I am using this for more than a year and very much satisfied.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is this a Garcinia spp. Or Syzygium?
« on: April 04, 2016, 01:24:49 AM »
I saw a plant in the front yard of a friend's home. They didn't plant it and don't know what it is.
My first impression was that is a Garcinia; but, the leaves are too thin for a Garcinia and the characteristic yellow latex was absent. My friend's guess was that is a Syzygium.

About two or three weeks for the first root. About 6 months for the first sprouting out of soil and quite one year for the first leave. It's very long !

Gouralata (Reunion Island)

Exactly!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Casimiroa edulis grafting

I've done chip buds with White Sapote.  The challenge is getting the buds to push after the buds heal.  You have to do all the usual tricks, and I've had a hard time sometimes getting the buds to push because White Sapote is so vigorous that the rootstock will push growth on so many other buds, and even from suckers from the rootstock.

I usually slice off all the buds below the bud union of the seedling with a sharp knife and top the seedling just above the healed bud. This always worked for chip budding citrus.
Don't know how to solve the root sucker 'problem' in Casimiroa edulis!

What about Chip budding?
Is it successful like the grafting methods?

You should mention the names to protect others in the future, and call out those who are not reciprocating!

I agree. You should also provide some hints of their address so that they can't cheat again by registering another nick name.

One year ago, a person from the Dominican Republic sent me 3 seeds of Catoperi (Melicoccus jimenezii).
According to him, Catoperi is sweeter (without sourness) and fleshier than Mamoncillo. Ripe Catoperi fruits have yellow outer shell when that of Mamoncillo remains almost green.
If anybody in the forum could provide a comparison of both?

Diospyros sp.?


yes I agree!

Luc posted pics of this tree before, and I guessed Diospyros sp.

probably one from SE Asia.

My Diospyros malabarica seedlings have very similar (if not the same) leaves

How many years before they will bear fruits?

My seedling is loaded with flowers (25 months from seed to flower).
But don't know if there will be any fruit set in this season!

Some experienced persons told me that there will be fruit set only in the 2nd/ 3rd flowering season.

Is edible the fruit of this specie of Durio? Is the tree common in India?
 :D
No flesh to eat. Flowers (staminal tubes) and Seeds (roasted) are eaten.
Trees are found in Western Ghat jungles of Kerala, India.

Vipin, We found few Durian trees near Mangalore. All the fruits had aborted seeds, the biggest fruit weighed about 9 kilograms.
Next year we plan to use  Wild Durian root stocks to graft on to.
Big Brother, it is really incredible to have a Durian weighing 9kg! Kindly let us know about the taste also.
I would like a few scions in future, when my second batch of Wild Durian seedlings are ready to graft on to.

One of the forum members informed me that he successfully patch-budded Durian on Wild Durian seedlings and that buds have emerged.  :)

In and around Varkala (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varkala), there is a famous local Mango variety known as Kolamb Manga, which is supposed to be from Colombo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colombo).
The Mango has very unique cylindrical shape (all most same width from top to bottom). Sweet without sourness even in the tender stage, fiber-less.
Those who ate the Mango swear that this is the most delicious variety they have ever eaten.
I am yet to taste this Mango.  :blank:

I thought chip and patch bud was the same. I don't know the difference.  Anyways, I just cut out the bud in  rectangular shape and made a matching cut on the rootstock and wrapped it up together.


I am not 100% sure, but I think in Chip budding a thin layer of "wood" beneath the bark is also going to the seedling.
And I found Chip budding is the easiest  :P.

Thanks ScottR, it was a patch bud graft i used. Once i get a chance, I'll post a pic of the graft with the wrapping removed.

So, it is not chip budded?  :blank:
