Kiyomi fruits are pretty large, like an orange size. Fruits every year and has nice size crop on my trees. I also get some seeds on some of my fruits.

Here's some photos of my fruits, it tastes good, but Gold Nugget is better tasting (sweeter). Also Ponkan is sweeter as well.

I couldn't tell you that. You can look up the different varieties but I don't know which one is the most cold hardiest.

I agree with Kevin, I got many of my new white sapote scions from Jonah (Bush2Beach) and they are all doing well. I grafted a Lemon Gold at end of March and the branch is 6 feet long now, had to cut it back a few times.

You can graft white sapote now (in Calif) and they will take quickly and grow fast. Here's one that I did 4 wks ago, grew about 6" in a month.
Should be good for grafting for another month.

Brad, I think your White pakistan is growing well because I grafted it on my Black Pakistan tree which is a vigorous grower. It's the one in the photo that get over 20ft, I cut the tree back to 15ft each year. You must be feeding the tree well, I don't fertilize my trees so maybe that's why it grows slower.

Let me know if you need some Thai Dwarf cuttings.

Here's the photos of the Thai Dwarf. If you trim some of the long tips of the White Pakistan branches then the side branches will start.

Glad to hear the tree is doing well.

Brad, if you want cover for chickens, don't use the Black Pakistan, it gets to tall and big. The best one would be the White Pakistan since it is very slow growing and branches don't get big even after 5 yrs. Next best might be the Thai Dwarf but you will still need to top it once a year to keep it small since it grows fast. Shangri-La is not as bushy as Thai Dwarf but has long skinny branches (large leaves also) and grows about same as Thai Dwarf.

11
Good question, it isn't really a dwarf tree, but the leaf nodes are closer than the Black Pakistan or Shangri-La.
I grafted these scions on my Shangri-La adult tree in April 2019 and the grafted branches are 4-6 ft long. I will take a few photos and post it here tomorrow. The White Pakistan grows much slower and stays smaller than the Thai Dwarf.

It does look much more compact (leaves closer) than the Shangri-Lar and Black Pakistan. It seems to fruit more than once as mentioned by Kevin and other members if you trim the top branches back every few months. I had two fruit harvest on the branches since April. Also have the World's Best mulberry grafted on this same tree so I can compare the fruit with Thai Dwarf since some people feel it might be the same variety.

Added two more variety on the list.

13
Added Red Himalayan.

I have a 5gallon Australian Red finger lime that had similar issue 8wks ago. It was doing well, very green, lots of flowers so I moved it from under my shade tree to give it more direct sun. In about a weeks time the tree completely dried up (wrinkled green leaves) so I thought it was dead. But I just cut off all the smaller branches with leaves still attached and left some skeleton branches. I moved it back into a shaded area and watered it as if it was normal. After 4wks it started to show a few new buds, now all of the small branches that were cut back have new leaves and it looks like it will survive. Funny thing is, one week after my finger lime took a dive, my sumo/shiranui that is in a large 40gallon pot did the exact same thing. Its leaves looked like your tree, all brown but did not fall off. So I did the same thing but I had to cut all the dead branches and there was only 18" of the main trunk left. Now after 6 wks the sumo is actually coming back, saw some green leaves growing out again. Very strange since this sumo has never had a problem and I had it in the same place for about 4 yrs.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Wekiwa vs OroBlanco
« on: September 20, 2020, 09:11:39 AM »
I have both trees, but no fruit yet on the Wekiwa. I have another variety that I think tastes better, its the Melogold. It tastes much better than the OroBlanco and is an improvement in flavor (at least for my taste, very sweet).

Both OroBlanco and Melogold trees fruit heavily so you will have lots of fruits to eat. One year when I didn't trim back the OroBlanco tree, on a large branch had 110 fruits, just before the fruits got ripe, the entire branch (2" diameter) broke off. Here's a photo of another grapefruit I like, its called Cocktail grapefruit (mandalo). This tree has lots of fruit as well, I did take a photo of the 32 fruits on one branch of this one.

Yes, I see large leaves on my citrus. As mentioned, when the tree is healthy or have rapid growth branch the leaves seem to get much larger than the leaves on the other branches. Here's my 9lb lemon leaf which is pretty large, also my seedling pomelo tree has leaves almost as large as this one.




17
Mango Stein, no those photos appear to be real to me. My Vista White looks a little more yellow on the outside but depending on the lighting it will look just like the photo you show.

Ok, thanks for your comments. At least I know now that it is a cherimoya so I can graft most of my scions onto this tree.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ID Cherimoya tree
« on: September 17, 2020, 04:35:02 PM »
Can anyone look at these photos and let me know if this is a cherimoya tree.
I had one fruit years ago and it tasted good, rather large fruit (1 lb).

The tree grows very fast, I top it every year to 5ft, but it grows over 15 by the end of the year. It has large oval leafs.
Also, if its a cherimoya, can you guess what type it is.

jaboticaba45, not a lime.

pagnr, that's a good one, it does look like that.

I hope it tastes ok when it ripens. These fruits will not be ready until Dec-Feb.

23
Got my scions today, excellent looking.
Thanks.

I will have to agree with Brad. I live in Orange County (Fullerton area) and my Gold Nugget has as much fruits on the tree as it did last year (50-100).
My tree has been in the ground for over 10yrs and it is a very vigorous, upright growing tree. Since it gets so many fruits, I usually need to thin some fruits so the smaller branches don't bend/break off.
