It sounds vert interesting hopefully it has the bright red color of tarocco orange and the woderful taste of clementino :-)
The difficult is to find the balance between a good therapeutic effect and a moderate heat damage.
In greenhouse for sure much easier than I'm trying to do in open field.
Parthenocarpic fruits have same flavour as ordinary ones, they are just seedless like most of bananas.
All depends on variety and od growing conditions (soil, climate, fertilization, watering....)
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Artocarpus collection and spacing

There is a commercial jackfruit grower here with the trees at 8 x 15 spacing. He claimed to get 100lbs per tree.  My jackfruit trees are mostly planted at 15 x 15. My trees are only 5 years in the ground but I don't think this will be an issue with a once a year pruning.

You mentioned doing serious pruning. Pruning is apparently very effective with jacks but not sure about the others. With consistent pruning Oscar could those spacing be reduced?

My grafted jacks are planted high density and spaced 15-16ft. I am hoping this is doable long term, time will tell.

I guess you also have the problem that stuff grows more quickly there and so would require higher spacing.
Pruning is effective on all. The only question is, will you really do it consistently? Moxt people lax off after the trees get big, and then they get out of control.

I will (canít speak for op). I use the same spacing for mangoes currently and only have a half acre to play with. Doable at my spacing you reckon?
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Southern CA Alkaline Soil & Jaboticabas
« Last post by dmwong93 on Today at 04:42:29 AM »

I was wondering what are your experience growing jabaoticabas in southern CA fairly alkaline soils. Do you try acidifying your soils since they prefer a pH range of 5.5-6.5 and not knowing exactly my soil pH since I haven't got it tested, my plants look yellow and has slow growth even when I fertilize and is kept moist.

If you do try acidifying your soil, how do you go about it? Sulfur?

Any chance someone in Hawaii has one or two of these trees available? Lmk please

Home grown Gold Nugget Mandarin, April, Brix = 18.5%
Unbelievably sweet, low acid, deep rich citrusy mandarin/Tangerine flavor. The gold Nuggets in this state tastes better to me than Dekopons/Shiranui which I am also growing. Iím comparing to supermarket Dekopons because I removed all fruit from my Shiranui this year.

I only wish I didnít harvest most my Gold Nuggets last month. The problem with leaving the Fruit on for so long is that it overlaps with flowering and can decrease next years crop. I see this as a good thing however because tangerines/Mandarins tend to overproduce to the point of breaking branches and inhibiting blooms or fruit set can decrease the need to thin Fruit.
