Hey long time since I been on here looking to top work my acocado seedling that's been in the ground. Thinking ofnpinkerton or fuerte. Unless you recommend something else. Already have lamb. Sir prize. And gem and sharwil. So whatever you recommend flavor wise I'd take into consideration.

Fuerte would be good since its early season and your others are later season.  Sir prize is pretty close to fuerte season.  Bacon is also good for winter avocados.  They are actually really nice fruit if left on until December/January.  Reed is also good, its same season as lamb.

Lots of options

Shoot me a message and come by for plants if you want.

I've got a couple white jades, 1 red Spanish, 1 delt monte gold, 1 victoria available.  These are small size, not yet separated pups.  Send me a message if you would like to get these.

Who here had large crops splitting from the rain? I didnt have a single split fruit.  I feel really optimistic about future cherimoya crops here and plan to put in a lot more trees this year.

Ive got a grafted tree that does the same thing.  It looks like that kind too.  Has scales with bumps in the scales and some fruits dont have the bumps some do.

Scott, you are welcome to come here also if you want.  Im out off hwy 67 between poway and ramona.  Its kind of in the sticks.  Ive got a bunch of stuff already rooted up in pots and cuttings also. 

But to be honest it would be best to wait a couple months to get cuttings or plants if you plan to keep them outside in the elements.  They arent going to do any growing without a greenhouse until around April or May.  Makes no difference to me though.

Its more useful to say how many months your avocado hang before picking.  Lamb hass is ripe in June to october down here in sourthern CA.  It hangs for around 14-17 months.

I think Jacks are hanging for close to 2 years and you are saying yours are closer to 1 year?  Big variation depending on latitude.  My latitude is around 33N. 

You can usually look into the crown and see if its been drilled or not.  Or tug on the center leaves and see if they are loose.

Pineapple plants don't like being wet and cold at the same time.  IE california winters.  So if you keep them in a pot, you can not only use a more well draining soil but you can also move them under a patio cover or indoors when it's raining and freezing out.  Just my 2 cents, in CA it will be best to keep in a pot for those reasons.  And if you really want them to do well, put them in a greenhouse or indoors under a grow lamp during winter.

Looks like cold damage, otherwise the plant looks in good shape, I would ignore it.

I agree, looks upside down.  Prune off an inch on both ends and let it redry out for a few days to scar up and then plant the skinny end down.  You want to get that yellow rotten part off the ends. 

It tastes just like a good store bought fruit.  Nice and juicy and flavorful/sweet. 

We cut this one yesterday.  Its a del monte gold plant that Simon gave us a year or so ago.

Your african pride looks the same as my AP fruit.  I got my tree at atkins. 

We just need to replace trump with seawalnut so he can make our lakes great again.

Frank, the scion is dwarfing not the rootstock.

This is how they looked a month ago.  Will check them again soon and see if they look better.

So far I havent been impressed with the fruits but Im waiting for the 10 or so on there now to get really ripe before making a decision on top working the AP tree.  It has some kind of off taste I really dont care for.  I'll probably switch it over to cherimoya unless these ones are much improved.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Malaysian Red Guava Ripening
« on: January 30, 2020, 05:08:28 PM »
I was told to wait until guava's fall of the tree for maximum sweetness and ripening.

They are usually mushy by that point.  Each variety has its own best time of ripeness to pick.  Usually when its green/yellow and just starting to soften and several days before falling off its best to me.  Some are picked green and crunchy, just depends on the type.

There were a lot of negative reviews on this red malaysian guava in the past.  Most said it was mediocre at best.

Hey Behl or Frank or anyone else with an atemoya when do you pick them in Southern CA?  I tried an african pride a month ago that wasn't ripe yet.  They are still hanging there.  Not sure when to pick.

Send me a message about scions.  I can sell the ones that I have mature trees of. 

Thanks to everyone who bought fruit boxes.  There's a handful of boxes shipping on Saturday.

  I'm going to put the fruit sale on hold for a month or so until we get into hass, sir prize, and Pinkerton season.  Those will be better if they are allowed to hang longer.
