Nicely done!

Your right , what was I thinking commenting on a forum.
How was shiloh to know you don’t want to buy one on Ebay, I doubt he reads minds.
Your better off finding rare Jabo’s or anything else by being nice.
Hot tip: most of the new rare or hard to find jabo’s only end up on ebay. Good luck.

Because crap lychee will get bought up here for high prices because we have nothing to compare it too, certainly not good lychee.
Really? I see the pix and there aint no erdon lee or FZS but scungy old kwai mai pink. 24g is chicken feed and good FZS are 40g to 50g so look at past threads on FZS on the scales I posted. Bos 3 is another name for these and they just don't cut it with the champion varieties. Why not FZS, Erdon Lee, Salathiel or even wai chi if you are going to send them to California?

Your looking, he responded by offering.
What’s the issue here, couldn’t be more to the point.

Looks interesting,Hows the fruit?
Trunk size is not that big for an old tree.
Any fuzz on the leaf underside indicating possible Tetrameria hybrid?

Maybe upcountry but this is a sub tropical Papaya. I am sold out of cuttings for now.

I`m interested in purchasing babaco cuttings if they are able to grow within the Caribbean.

Try posting in the Tropical Fruit section.

What is the difference between Red and Red Hybrid?
I have noticed that many fruit species can have precocious individuals that fruit at a much smaller size. Could it be either a Red Hybrid or Red which are known to fruit at small sizes? This could just be a bit smaller than usual.If we forget that they are nearly all hybrids anyway that would make it a M. cauliflora. I have a feeling that most dwarfs are a form of aureana or cauliflora.

Super wack. There are some small non commercial nurseries that know whats up.
Whereaboots you located?

I bet Har has stated multiple times. Forum search dat.
Nice picture--- reminds me of my favorite temoylata, the 4--5: 'Priestley' atemoya  X 'Fairchild Purple' Annona reticulata.

Which cherimoya variety was the seed parent?

I Wasn't for sure as I did a forum search and scanned the board back to September when he passed and did not see anything. I happened to be in the neighborhood yesterday and saw the grove from afar so I was thinking about him.

For me, I met Gene briefly a few times at the annual citrus tasting and tour he would so graciously host at his property. The last year he took a few of us in his huge barn to see one of his other passions of 1934-36 Ford’s.
Every year someone in the group was bound to ask: “Gene, whats your favorite citrus?”
I think he hated that question or thought it was stupid. He would kind of hem and haw and say “ whichever one I am eating at the moment” , though he would reveal some of his favorite’s .
Some of the amazing standouts from his collection for me was the poormans orange, Black Twig or Winged Lime and the Ginger lime.
Gene told me Limes are true to type from seed and so I started alot of Black Twig and Ginger Limes.
Thanks for the good memories and inspiration. Thanks for opening my eyes to all the possibilities and flavors of Citrus. Much admiration and respect.

I wanted to share the news that Citrus super collector and legend Gene Lester passed away this Fall.
I know some friends on the forum I have lost contact with over the years and I wonder how they are doing or if they are still around. So I thought folks should know.
I know some of you knew or traded with him over the years and would perhaps like the chance to light a candle or share a story or however you personally like to memorilize and give thanks for someone’s presence and contribution on earth.
So rest well Gene and thank you for your passion’s and energy.

Wow that is quick, haha! I have a friend in Hawaii great growing conditions and soil and it took around 25 years!
I have a langsat growing in a 20 gal pot unprotected for 7+ years. It survives but it is not happy. Whitman's trees took 18+ years to fruit.

I have eaten a fair amount of Chocolate and Coffee Cake Persimmons the last 2 years.
They are knock your socks of amazing.
Coffee cake tastes a bit like a good non gritty Sapodilla , maybe a hair less sweet.
Chocolate is melts in your mouth delicious perfection! What I imagined Black Sapote to taste like until I actually tried some.
I may be able to hook up some scion pretty soon.

Thank you for the info. Still waiting for the seed seller that is collecting from Rio Grande do Sul, the place most like my climate in Brazil.

I know its just a fruit nerd pet peeve I share with some that do not like the anglicized , for marketing fruit names when there is a less confusing or just better latin root name which can have no confusion.
Pine apple
Star apple
Sugar apple
Elephant apple?
Pond apple

If Monstera is native from Mex to Panama , then correct anglicized name would be central american breadfruit, but that sounds even stupider, especially considering, which is mainly my point. That Monstera Deliciosa has to be one of the best latin names for a plant or fruit! It is awesome and perfect as it is and there is no confusion what it is. So whatever cheeky american thought they were making the leap from chinese gooseberry to the now common Kiwi , I just think its stupid personally. Don’t change what is perfect. I am aware most people are very different from I but this is just my opinion.

No doubt Rob. Who buys tropical fruit tree’s from a nursery in Connecticut  ::)
I am not really feeling Loogies at all in any way shape or form and this description for monstera deliciosa reaffirms that. There is alot of great nurseries to support and why buy a plant online you can find anywhere. Prefer to save my plants from any shipping stress and support local bizness if possible.
