Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: mistery tree to ID
« on: March 11, 2017, 01:39:37 PM »
Looks like some kind of aubergine/eggplant, but the leaves are somewhat different.

102
Some Garcinias are very slow to germinate, and can take up to a year to germinate.
I have some G. madruno, that were sown about 6 months back, and still no sign of germination, however they're still alive.

Just be patient, and wait for them.

103
That's a nice one Alexandre. I had never heard about this one.
Hope they will grow nicelly, and in a few years, you will be able to suply some seeds to us.

Two fruits that I picked this week at my parents place.
The last mangoes for this season are rippening, and it happens that this last ones are from the biggest variety I currently have (does anyone knows what's this variety). This was the first fruit to ripen, and also is the smaller, yet it is more than 1kg.
Also an avocado, from a seedling tree, that was cut a few years ago, because it didn't produce nothing, and now it has bounced back and is delivering this quite big fruits (almost 900grams)

By the seed shape, colour, and the type of roots, it looks to me some kind of Garcinia, but I'm unable to determine which one.

It is not a mango! It is a Garcinia, just not sure if it is a G. mangostana.

So, this week I decided to transplant the Pitangatuba cutting for it's own pot (as I had rooted it in the same pot where the mother plant is), and for my surprise, the root system, was huge! I was thinking it shoud have 2 or 3 small roots, and look what it had!

« on: November 21, 2016, 07:19:53 PM »
About 2 or 3 years ago, I also had one that has flowered with little more than one year old, and it was in a 10cm pot, and no more than 40cm tal, maybe the possibility of dying, triggers the flowering proccess...

hmmm

I would love to hear about his Myrtaceae collection?
What do you have????

Grapebush keep us posted.
sad to say i was on vacation and no watered my seeds from you so i lost most of them.
So i will have 2 start over......... :(

eep us posted when you will have  ore of those yellow  treasures.
Does the tree only once a year?

Hi,

Usually, here they only fruit once a year (normaly in early summer), but this year was quite atypical, and some species that fruit only once a year, are flowering for the second time this year, so there is a light possibility, that this one could do the same; and if it happen, I will post it here.

Grapebush seeds are great, very fresh and well packaged, have a good collection and very interesting species.

Thank you Alexandre for your support! You also have a very good collection. Your Myrtaceae colection makes dream...

Sorry to hear that!
I will keep it updated, if something apear.

how are you doing any more Eugenia luschnathiana

Hey! I'm fine, thank you!
For the moment I have no more seeds of E. luschnathiana. The person that gave me the other seeds, told me that there were some new fruit on the tree, more than one month ago, but since then I had no more news, so don't know if I will be able to get any more seeds this year, or only in 2017.

« on: November 09, 2016, 09:38:24 PM »
For me, these look like some evergreen Prunus Sp. flowers, and definitly not an Apocynaceae, flower.

Here's a little update, on some of my plants, that are now fruiting or flowering, or just developing nicely.

Another mango tree. This one always flowers like crazy, but sets very poorly, and most fruits come with some kind of deformation, and end up aborting before ripening... (this year is the last chance for it to deliver me some good fruit, or next year, will be topworked, or replaced by something else...).




It worked!!! I need to threaten, some more of my fruit trees! This year it is holding 6 or 7 fruits, and they are the bigest ones I've ever seen on my trees; I think one of them should be a little bit more than 2kg, and they're still rock hard, so maybe they will still grow a bit more...






And now some images of some of my other trees:
Mangos




My Date Palm, is flowering for the first time, and it is not even 1m in trunk height, and is maybe the more neglected of my plants...






Some pitangas, from my older tree.






Ripe pineaples, and another one flowering.






Some Persimons getting to ripness.



115
For me, Inga feuillei, is the fastest one I have.
It has grown more than 2m in a 3l pot, now is in the ground, and more than 3m and branching nicely. It is +- 18 months.
Second fastest, is Mammea americana. About 1,5m in about a year.
Both from seed.

116
It looks like an Annonaceae, but can't ID the species! Maybe some type of rare Uvaria...

Congratulations on your nice harvest, Nelio. It looks like a painting with all the different colors.

I planted coffee in the north of Portugal 3 years ago - of the 'normal' variety you can buy in big garden centers here. I must have planted 20 to 30 one year old seedlings - none of them survived the first winter... But I am more northerly than Luis...

Tea did survive, but coffee didn't, so guess what I'll be drinking...

Thank you Solko!

If you want to try again, I can get you a few seedlings! As you can see I have a lot to pull off...
Apparently there is one variety that can hold some cold, but I'm not sure which one it is... Maybe the yellow one...

Thank you for your answers!
Apparently all of you share the same opinion than me. I cannot be completelly sure as I don't have Uvaia, or even ever seen one, only the images on the web, but I have some seedlings of a few species of Plinia and Myrciaria, and any of them look like this one...

Very similar to uvaia... how long are their leaves?

As mentioned above, the mature leaves are between 5cm and 8cm, and much more thicker than any Jaboticaba I've seen, except M. vexator, but they don't match with this last one either.
The problem here is that you say the fruit is dark and give on trunk... that's not the case of any uvaia.  ;D

Actually it seems that there is one "Purple Uvaia" (Uvaia roxa,Eugenia neomyrtifolia), which fruits are quite dark and grow close to the stems, but the leaves are suposedely smaller than this ones, but I can't find that much info on that one so...
And there's always the possibility, that the guy in the nursery mixed up things, and this is nothing, of what we're tinking...

Wow, very nice plants Grapebush, your site seems to be in hills is that right? So you don't get any hard freezes there? Thanks for sharing great pic's 8)

Thank you Scott!
My site is in a hilly area (I live in a volcanic Island, so flat terrain is almost impossible to find), but it's not in the mountains. It's about 300m altitude, and here in the Island we rarely have freezes, and if they occur it is never under 1000m of altitude. The temps here don't have that much variation all year long; in some years we can have 23 degrees Celcius in December and January...

Muitos parabéns Nélio! Congratulations, your coffe plants are amazing!  ::)

Thank you Luís!
How are the ones I sent to you, doing so far? And the Solanum robustum, has adapted to your climate?
Hello Nélio! The solanum is great and growing very fast! Lets see how he will go with cold temp. The coffe plants are great but i will not put them on ground. I think i will loose them if i plant them on ground.  ;D

I guess you can keep them in big pots, and make them fruit that way. Anyway, it can't hurt to put one or two in the ground, if I remembre weel I sent you quite a few, so you can take some risk.
I don't want to take the risk of loosing any plant. I'm dying to try the coffe fruits. I read they have amazing health properties...

It is supposed to have a good dose of antioxidants, and they are very sweet; and because of that, every year I have Blackbirds (Turdus merula) doing constant raids, to my tree.

122
Passiflora edulis var flavicarpa, and Passiflora ligularis, seeds available.
