Looks like nutmeg possibly.  Are the leaves fragrant when you crush them?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for dragon fruit cuttings
« Last post by Mftek on Today at 01:34:28 AM »
Hey guys!
New member here looking to start growing some dragon fruit in my backyard.
Looking for these varieties:
American beauty
Physical graffiti
Dark star
Purple haze

Let me know what you guys have. Don't have much to trade, but hopefully we can work something out.
Thanks and happy growing!
I'm trying to root some from cuttings now. No idea how hard that is. I'll try with the one fruit I haven't eaten. Good luck with seeds.
Tried cuttings with no luck. Air layers also failed for me.

Hi Oscar.  I'm pretty surprised you didn't have any success with airlayering.  Every single time mine have rooted within a couple wks at the most.  This is a very easy tree to layer in my experience.  What is your method?
Same way i airlayer other trees with total success: wrap moistened sphagnum moss with aluminum foil.
i treid 2 air-layers , and several cuttings all failed
all my seeds failed as well.
i tried 2 root-cuttings and both succeeded.
unfortuneatly i had given them away then my tree was 20ft tall
we had temps of 26F a few weeks ago, and eithe rthe tree is dead
or, its taking its time coming back.
there is a little green under the bark near the roots, but ALL of the branches and everything over 2ft high
is brown under the bark.

not sure why i never got seeds to take, there are hundereds of seeds in each fruit.
but not 1 seedling even under the tree.

i love the flavor though.
my dog even eats the lower hanging fruit.
eveyone that comes to my house has a couple to taste and loves them.
It seems that seeds need a lot of light to sprout. That is i guess why you never find any volunteer seedlings under the tree.

I think there something different happening with jackfruit this year. I also noticed this on my neighbors tree that all the flowers are on the tips of small branches, not the main trunk. That tree is fruiting for the first time, so i thought may be it is a different variety but after couple of weeks our jackfruit trees also bloomed and they also had flowers on the top/slim branches, not on the main trunk. In the past this never happened with our trees, they always had flowers/fruits on the main trunk only, not even on big branches, just on main trunk. But this year it is completely opposite, nothing on main trunk and all on the tips of small branches. And, the quantity of flowers is not normal, they are too much all over the tree.

Also one more interesting thing is: normally there are 2 flowers on one branch tip, but this time there are 3 flowers on each branch tip. One is smooth and still not opened, two are hairy/dotted green and the interesting thing happened is one of the hairy/dotted flower turned black in few days time and the 2 other are still green.
Do you guys think may be it has something to do with the weather or something wrong going on in the atmosphere?
