Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Wax Jambu Challenge- Arizona
« on: Today at 04:46:43 AM »
On wikipedia it says ,,when healthy ,the leaves have a shine to them,, .
This is how the leaves of my wax jambu look.They have what appears to be shiny specks on them with more on the trunk and on the new growth.
Tree grows in sodic soil,verry alkaline( i mean it has 8,5 ph).

Its not a fairy tale,its real that the chinese killed all the sparrows( almost all of them) leading to the ecological imbalance Spaugh noted before.
They calculated how much cereals eats a sparrow and they were doing it to combat famine  but it didnt worked.

Maybe they impregnated the wood chips with water glass( sodium silicate) in order to repel water and last longer.

There are 2 varietyes of strawberry guava,Psidium Cattleyanum.
One makes yellow fruit and its called lemon guava ,and the otther makes mauve fruit or red and its called strawberry guava.
I grow both and they are fruiting heavy in the pot.

Adam ( fruit bat fruits) had this and i think he is the only one .
Also,do you know that there are thousands of such annonaceae edible and unknown much?
Im not talking about annona but otther related annonaceae.
They are hard to find and exceptionally hard to find good seeds that germinate .

Wax jambu and atemoya like high ph .Atemoya likes limestone and wax jambu sodic soil wich has a ph of 8,5+.
What i think it happened its that you feed bacteria with sugar and they used all the nitrogen .
After bacteria dies ,the plant should get available nitrogen again and more than before.

For the moment i dont send this Nitraria Schoberi.
Im the only one on the european continent that eats this.
I will have to consider well if i want to give somme seeds away.
If its not invasive,if the person realises how rare this plant is and has enough respect for it as it is a natural monument here protected by law ( criminal record ,jail ,for breaking Nitraria Schoberi leaves,etc).
I will announce you if i will give away the seeds.

Picture with one of my 2 Nitraria Schoberi flowering in a verry small ,2 litter( half a gallon) pot.
The soil it pure yellow clay.Nothing can grow in it except Nitraria.No fertiliser addeď and i didnt added salt ( NaCl).

Look at Quatar.The infectious rate per 1 mil population its the biggest in the world and its a warm country.
This comes to aid my theory about pollen competing with coronavirus because Quatar has not manny flowers and the pollen in the air its low because this country its located in a desert.
The death rate with only 30 cases for 45000 covid 19 cases looks ,,engineered,, like one would expect to find in such dictatorship ( i cant even call it dictatorship actually).
Just see the facts for yourselves https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

Dont forget that Qatar may be a hot country but
1 humidity is also high which doesnt help with the virus
2 most people stay indoors exacly because its hot and with aircon the same air circulates so the infections mostly occur in buildings
3 also the tests done are high compered to other countries. For example countries such as Brazil have around 50% of test turn out positive
The comparison with otther countryes that they made more tests is just a scapegoat.
30 death from covid 19 with 45000 cases? Thats cover up.
Bit at least they didnt hide the numbers wich proove my theory that because they have no flowering plants ,covid 19 develops better there.
Its on par with my asumption about MERS wich only spread to Saudi Arabia,another country with no flowering plants and pollen in the air.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Mislabeled Pluot?
« on: May 27, 2020, 08:35:10 PM »
I dont even know how you can say they have plum style leaves since they have no plum genes.
In order to get an idea on how the ,,plum,, style leaves should look on these hibrids,you should compare them with the Myrobolan leaves or the chinese plum/myrobolan.

Here in Romania ( the biggest plum producer in the world) the Pluots,plumcots ,etc  would be considered mislabeled because they are not real plum ( Prunus Domestica) hibrids .
They are american plum hibrids wich we dont even consider those plums and we call them ,,corcoduse,,( mirabelle fruit) not ,,prune,,( real plum,Prunus Domestica).
None of the pluots,plumcots have real plum genes in them.
 
EDIT: they are not even Myrabelle ( Prunus domestica var Syriaca) hybrids with apricot but instead they are hybrids made with Prunus Cerasifera ( myrobolan used as rootstock)  or Prunus Salicina ( a chinese ,,plum,, thats a soird of a chinese Myrobolan) and apricot.

Here is a study that says it fixes nitrogen .
But it doesnt fixes at the level i initially toght so i wouldnt count on it to fix much nitrogen in the cyanobacteria stile so i agree with you Johnny.

I ate a lot of eurasian sparrows in childhood ,when i was stupid and hunted everything that move.
My dream was to hunt a rare,white sparrow ,albino.
Never seen one.
Now i have probably 50 sparrows that nest on my house roof and around the house.
They eat my dog food pellets and even the cat pellets but i cant get mad on them for that.

A week ago i left the window open to my greenhouse and 3 sparrows got inside the dome then got skared and one couldnt find the way out.
I got out of the dome so that she doesnt feel stressed by my presence so that she finds the way out wich she did.

In case of an emergency and if the plants get burned from too much nitrogen ,you can apply gypsum( powder from construction store).
Gypsum is used to recover lawn spots that are burned because of dog urine wich is verry high in nitrogen.

20
Soak them in water 24 hours ,then put them in a ziplock bag with wet peat moss and keep them in the fridge for 40-80 days.
When you take them out and feel warm enviroment they should germinate.

Salut !
The small trees you could cover them with a shade cloth or something like that .
Personally i dont worry about blackbirds ( grauri) and i had small cherry trees that had just 2 or 4 fruits on them ,the giant flock of blackbirds settled for a while on my land and no bird ate my cherryes wich were without protection so to speak  :D.


Graurii erau carnea de vanat preferata a lui Alexandru Odobescu.

Culprit discovered (just got another one, more on the way): Eugenia reinwardtiana / Cedar Bay Cherry.  :)

Remarkable how much it tastes like plum. Only real criticism is I'd like a better flesh to seed ratio.
Have you tryed a plum X apricot cultivar?
These hibrids are on par with mango probably betteer as i live in a temperate place,i have a big such hibrid tree and i eat like 2-3 fruits per year from the tree while mango i ate houndreds in a year from supermarket.
The hibrid tree is soo good all the fruits get eaten before i do,even the half rotten one that fall from the tree are eaten.

I have these giant sized,fruit eating ,blackbird flocks flying above my land .
I dont do nothing and i have grapes,cherryes,small fruits they like to eat.They do no big damage ( id say no damage at all) and they are fun to watch especially if they are chased by a hawk.
In childhood i used to hunt and eat all species of blackbirds i could find.Its for connaiseur hunters to eat them and they have a distinct taste because they eat all those fruits and they are the leanest possible game meat.
Now i dont hunt any bird ,off course.
With a pellet gun if you sit under the flock directly and shot them ,you wont do nothing to them and might as well get stained with somme red poo  ;D.

In my orchards i plan to let 10-15 % of the crop on trees for the birds to eat in winter.
I also have a giant cherry tree ,Prunus Avium ,that i keep especially for blackbirds.
I dont mention the houndreds of big Mirabelle trees and american plums from my fence ,wich are heavy bearers that probably make 2-3 tons of fruit per year and i dont colect them ,just keep these trees for the birds.
I get soo much fruit that i have to ferment them to make moonshine or compost ,but the mirabelle,american plum and cherryes are too much work to colect.
I make compost from apples,pears and quince( i have a quince tree that makes like 400kgs of fruit per year ,alone).

Not to forget the sour cherry forest with houndreds of trees on the hill slope.They are high quality fruit ,but because theyre in a slope i dont colect them and leave them for the birds.

An idea to prevent you becoming poore because of the birds ,is to plant more trees, for you and the birds.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Strange pawpaw leaf issue
« on: May 26, 2020, 08:12:08 PM »
Root damage .Its same as overwatering stress.
The doesnt have enough oxigen because of root damage or because of overwatering( the roots dont have enough oxigen).
I have a cherimoya that i think il loose her because of overwatering and sprouted similar leaves.
Pawpaw on the otther hand its more resistant than cherimoya probably ,because they like to grow in wet soil near rivers.
I think it will recover.
