So I spoke with some people here they said that they remember Hopkins taking budwood from one of the trees in the lowlands area.  Those trees are all seedlings of NS1 and I'm assuming that's what they are still propagating at Hopkins. We do not carry anything in our nursery called "ECHO".  Ive seen the echo jackfruit and a echo sweet barbados cherry listed on other sites before but as far as i know those could have originated from here but other nurseries gave them the echo name.

From what i understand Lolita is a superior red cultivar. i have never been able to find one myself.

Expedition produces great tasting green fruit 24-32ozs  with characteristics of a Guatemalan avocado.  Fruits Nov-Jan it can have a tendency to bear alternately the trees are hardy to around 26 degrees.

can anyone identify this for us. i was told it came from the Kampong house but i have no other info on it.

yeah i cant remember exactly what he said but i know it was less than 10%

Ive heard out of 100 a few (a little less than 10 percent) can fruit in one year.

Please do tell where these figures came from (from those numbers that would be a high percentage which is not only highly unlikely but actually not to be believed).  There is no way a 1 year old jackfruit tree (seedling or grafted) could support a mature fruit.

That's what i was told at Fruitscapes. I dont see why they would make that up its not like they were trying to sell me jackfruit seeds. I also saw a very short tree holding a single fruit in Walter Zills front yard.

I'm surprised they haven't used genetics from an existing citrus species, rather than making a trasngenic organism.

I know there must be resistant species (varieties), I have personally seen some citrus trees that are totally unfazed by greening, in orchards with plenty of diseased trees

Ive been told numerous time by different people (not sure if that makes it true) there are no resistant species.  If there was a resistant citrus it seems like there are potentially millions maybe billions to be made off it.

we have them in 3 gallon pots for sale. i don't think we have any nishikawa in the ground here but we do have a good variety of avocados planted out. we have been getting plenty of fruit for the market  but I'm not sure how this years harvest compares to previous years.

We sell that book and also "100 tropical fruits nuts and spices for the central African home garden" by the same author. He was just here for our annual agricultural conference. The books aren't meant to be comprehensive but more of a starting point for other research. We also sell a poster that's used on the cover of one of the books. it shows a central African harvest of 100 different fruits.
