I have 5 Zills black Surinam cherries and they had a heavy bloom in the spring and have continued to
bloom this summer. It seems like between the 5 trees there is always ripe fruit on one of them.

As Brettay wrote, sour orange is a really great rootstock, if you don't live in an area that is troubled with the tristeza virus disease.  Sour orange is still the number one root stock in Texas.  Personally, my favorite root stock is Flying Dragon.  Most all of my in ground trees are growing on Flying Dragon.

Will good compost tea made with a bubbler compare at all to these types of products?
I've read that compost tea(&genetics obviously) are the secret behind giant veggie champions
Compost tea is raw material that's been broken down by bacteria. Let's face it, the bacteria will probably all die after the compost is used up. You need to apply it frequently to get the giant veggies.

Mycorrhizae are spores of fungi that can form symbiotic relationships with plant roots, which increases the plant's ability to gather raw materials from the soil. So you tend to apply it once when you plant the tree, and that's it.

Signed up for chip drop. I have been dragging my feet on mulching.  I need a mini backhoe to help move stuff.

There's a video recently demonstrating squeezing of the flowers to pollinate. It may be what Bhkkatemoya posted.

But is the root system important if it's just an anchor? :D


Am just parroting the pros, that's all.  My pineapples have big cajones too.

Like I said, I stir Polyon into the top inch or so of soil when I upcan.

Too often I have checked on buried seeds only to find them terminated but I just broke the root checking! :P

To get chips from tree services that don't subscribe to chipdrop an idea is to make up some maps of your area showing your location and describing what you want in English and Spanish. Carry them in your car and hand them out whenever you see trimming underway.
Some of these crews are from out-of town doing temporary work and don't know anything. What they do know is that when the day ends or begins and they get full they want to get rid of chips quick.
