You should be fine. I have Cherimoya planted in clay waterlogged soil .

Florida is humid, lots of CA areas are not humid. San Diego & LA is a desert by the ocean.
If overhead misters are impractical for you then spray as fine a spray as possible from hose nozzle or backpack sprayer, with rain water or as dechlorinated water as possible.

Hi Joe,
Atemoya does not fruit well at all in my climate, even with hand pollination, they just grow.
Itís all about Cherimoya here.
I canít reference the source of this budwood either.
Take care!

Chinadoll is different from big white.

Argelino makes 2 crops a year May and August and some in between so maybe just 1 long crop if you want to look at it that way.

$200 on ebay. The hype is real.  Everyone is going to think they really need it. Size does matter apparently.
So many good loquat varieties out there.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Will White Sapote produce in tropics?
« on: March 31, 2020, 11:41:55 AM »
White Sapote is an amazing tasting fruit.
The best taste description I can come up with is Pear flan. Sweet and silky smooth.
Just dehydrated some for the first time so good.
I farm in small town sized yards and have multiple fruiting treeís in each yard now.
So productive and delicious.
The first fruit I ever tries was in Florida outside Kampong and I thought it was terrible.
This has happened to me a number of times with various fruits , and then you try a really good one and it flips your view. I try to always be open to trying a fruit again if I didnít like it the first time.
Climate and cultivar matters as well as many other factors.

You could try buying fresh seeds straight from the source on this forum instead of seed middlemen who had to buy the seedís so they also have to sell them , despite the fact they may have been sitting around awhile.
Also the shortest distance/time shipped and the season shipped can make a difference. Best of luck on your next batch of seeds.

This is my last blast for the season so please get your order in by tomorrow morning.

Can do Itay. Please send PM

Iím interested in your jujube and sapodilla .
Do you have treeís available and how much please?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Chop and Drop suggestions
« on: March 23, 2020, 05:53:24 PM »
Guinea grass and Albizia are great builders of biomass but also require quite a bit of management.
Your signing up for alot of mowing all the time with guinea grass.
I think edible chop and drop like Moringa is pretty ideal.
Comfrey with long roots to airate the soil and mine minerals is nice.
Having guinea grass grow to 4 foot every month and swallowing young /smaller plants can be alot to contend with.
Props for working with it well, but I donít think its for everyone.

Rodney is a wee bit thrifty , donít take it personally. If he somehow lost out , youíd probably hear about it.

Thats great your offering these plants and spreading them around!

$4 a piece wrapped in Parafilm.
Cut and shipped same day.

That fruit looks good.
My ginger limes have more seeds than mesocarp practically.

Gotta unleash some dollars for these. Everyone hunting and willing to pay bank.

41 degrees and raining.
Thatís normal Spring weather in the Yay area for ya.
Lots of toasted stone fruit blossom as well.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Avocado thread

Gillogoly is top 5 Aguacate for me.
They sell them at the farmers market .
I would love to find some scion.

Still waiting to try a Sharwil from Brad's tree.  I got one last saturday. 

Has anyone try a Gillogly avocado yet?  Gary Matsuoka from Laguna Hills Nursery said it's the best avocado he has so far.

There are so many bad reviews of Gillogly online. I have access to a tree here and the patent has expired. I may try to graft a piece here but I am not sure it's worth it. I wonder if it is great or they have a glut of trees to move. Another thing to consider is that many people are terrible at growing avocado since they are relatively heavy feeders and need excellent drainage. Maybe it is wonderful in the right setting.
