I will have more seeds soon if anyone is interested.

I have a cambuca if you're still looking.

yikes... looks like i planted my double trees to close together (about 2 feet).

i am pretty sure the pickering is going to get outgrown pretty quickly. maybe you should plant it on the south side so it gets more sun exposure?

OP needs to take more pics.

The fruit remind me of mallika mango.

Is it aromatic ?.

Maybe it's the age or history, but my malika looks much more symmetrical compared to the picture

Can you confirm all varieties are seedless?

Yes, all are seedless.

what of them can grow in 9a USDA?need some who can do pups in pot too

I know folks that grow in 9a and below but 9b and above is optimal. Dwarf Red and pitogo are the most sensitive of the bunch and will not do well in 9a. It may take more time for the mats to develop and provide fruit below 9b, but it's definitely doable in 9a. Just plant them in a protected area. I wouldnt recommend pots at all. The roots really expand out on bananas and they will become root bound quickly.

Do they arrive still viable after a long travel? Eg: to Europe?

Yes, corms are stable and I have shipped to Europe in the past without issue.

I have a nitida plant and olata cuttings available
How are the alata fruits? Has your alata vine fruited yet? Also do you just need one vine?

Not sure. It flowered but no fruit set. Still not that large though.

How does this compare to the others released this year (Phoenix and cotton candy)? Is this one a must have?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Bloom Fairy Coming to South Florida

This year has been frustrating for me. I hacked back my pickering too late last year and it's only puahing vegetative growth. Maybe I let it hold too many fruit last year... Not really sure. I also have a NDM that's good size but it looks like it's stuck. Swollen buds since late January but absolutely no growth or blooms... I could deal with at least some homegrown NDM but the wait is killing me.

Fond my answer in another thread.

Cherry of the Rio Grande can handle down to -6C

Reading this makes me wonder if they would grow better in North Florida... Anyone know? Sorry for the thread jack

Steer manure is probably not the best way to go as it is high nitrogen I believe... You want high potassium for bananas.

Sorry, but there's no way there's a developed seed in that little thing.

From my experience they usually don't fill out and are subpar without leaves to support growth... You may have a better chance if you remove a few hands, but I don't know if that will help much with only one leaf.

My Florida Hass avocado also has droopy/curled leaves but it seems to do that when it puts its energy into flowers and new growth. The new growth looks healthy too so I'm not worried.

I'm not sure if it's effective with all the spit, bacteria, etc. but if you enjoy it, why not? Lol... Try it out and report back. I doubt there are any studies on it though and I am sure there are more effective ways like using a small paintbrush.

Bumping this back up from the past... Does anyone know of any other cold hardy annonas? I will be moving to Tallahassee and I'm trying to get a sense of what might survive annona-wise in 8b.

PPK, CC, Fairchild, and Pickering and not a single flower as of yet this season................sad panda

Your not alone. still waiting....
My Glenn, Coco Cream, and NDM have swollen nodes. But they've been like that for months

Same here... We've gotten plenty of cool nights followed by weather in the upper 70s and low 80s, but nothing at all has happened.

« on: February 24, 2017, 11:17:23 AM »
With so much variety there's no need to grow what can be bought at the store... I prefer a a mysore, namwah, Brazilian, or pitogo that is ripened on the plant to a store bought banana anyaay. They're a lot smaller but you get so many bananas that it doesn't matter. There are exotic varieties too that have small nuances in flavor too. I have about 20 different types in my yard
