Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: The Reed avocado thread
« on: May 15, 2020, 03:03:59 PM »
I let Reed self thinning to slow down the growth.
My friend's tree has less fruits so the fruits are huge, 50% bigger than mines.
Trade off.

I had 2 pots of a big red variety. Died over winter.
My 4 other varieties can over winter here.

They grow fast in summer so that 2G pot is a bit small.

Those leaves are old growth so the tree had excess water.
If the new leaves starting to curl stop watering.

Over watering.

That one worth 3x as the real one here.

1 on AP
1 on cherimoya

Had 2 sugar apple seedling last year.
Only 1 survived over winter .
I don't use it as rootstock here.

How many buds would come out when you laid cutting on its side?

I only avoid repotting a few days before and a few days after frost.

You should do it now.
If your tree has poor roots leave tree in shade after repotting.

My avocado tree needs 2 gallon of water every morning else branches droop in the afternoon heat.

Added wood to top of post.

Is that albino citrus grafted or seedling?

Cold is one of the many factors that trigger flowering.
There is no myth.

They are the only pests on my guava.
I drop them to the ground and step on them before they fly off.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 2020 lychee crop good or not?
« on: April 19, 2020, 02:53:04 PM »
I air-layered 2 longan branches when the tree started flowering.
Each branch had more fruits than the rest of the tree.

I suggest you try girdling when your lychee starting to flower.

I have a roll coming.
Good job!

If you donít like low crotch remove 1 side now.

I would remove the big side to get a nice tapered trunk.
Stake the left over.

I was given Na Dai scion.
ND fruits are small like Sugar Apple but not look like SA.
Leaves look like any other Atemoya.

My SA are mostly dormant.
My ND Is active.

Would you guys post ND leaves so I canít compare?

To sum it up, most mango will be condo mango here in SoCal.

For a moment I couldn't relate to what Mikey was saying.
I thought he was a stud.

Na Dai is just an atemoya.
It's not a sugar apple.
It retains full leaves over winter here.

I got 20 fruits last year.

You should be expecting 1/4 yield from a 10' tree.
With 4 small trees in the same space as a 10' tree, yield should be similar.
