Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Marang in subtropics
« Last post by Ulfr on Today at 08:04:24 AM »
Hi All,

I recently bought a marang fruit at the market.  As I was snacking I spit my seeds throughout the yard and didn't think anything of it.  But several weeks later I have marang seedlings sprouting from my dirt pile in the shade.  I was under the impression these trees would only survive in the true tropics.  We are in Autumn outside Brisbane, Australia and it is about 17C at nighttime.   Will these seedlings die come winter?  The lowest temperature in my area is 0C and that only really happens once a year if ever.  Average winter night time temperature more hangs around 10C. 


There is a guy on here that has one growing on the coast. If that’s true then should be possible in Brisbane but where in Brisbane makes a big difference. I get frosts but I’m in outer Logan, inner Brisbane is muuuuch warmer. Protect for a few years regardless, interested to see how it goes :)

what I have been trying to do is grow some root stock and graft
my own trees. Since I am grafting atemoya I have been growing
atemoya seedlings. Some people prefer cherimoya or sugar apple for
root stock. Each Spring there are several sellers on this forum who
offer scions. I grafted a PPC and it pushed initially this past Spring but
it failed. I have heard Birula and La Habra Sun being favorites in CA and
I wanted to try those. I have seedlings now I am going to grow for next Spring.
I have a Na Dai sugar apple seeds and some Tim atemoya seeds from last year.
PM if interested. You could check with Fruitscapes they may have PPC available
this Spring? 
My Fuerte, Stewart and Bacon are in the ground. My Pinkerton and Mexicola are in a large 8x4x 3foot deep raised bed and my Reed is in a smaller raised bed 4x4x2 foot deep and the others are in 10 gallon grow bags and are young trees.

Sounds really good.  I highly recommend bottomless RootBuilder.  Right height at 16", build and expand to any size you want.

I passed off a grafted Pinkerton in a 3 gallon RootTrapper to a friend.  Any type of root tip pruning system is boss.
Speaking of Vitamin C my Moro blood oranges are really excellent now.  We have been and will continue to eat tree ripened oranges every day. I grafted about 5 varieties of oranges to 2 trees - Taracco, Valenica, Marrs, Cara Cara, Hamlin.  The cold (34F) sets up the burgundy color and flavors perfectly.

A money tree that fruits year round with always ripening $100 bills.

.....with sap that cures Covid-19 when mixed with anejo tequila.

Avocados, fer sure.

What type of lychee do you have for sale?

Id plant a walnut tree.

Phet Pak Chong is a good one for SoFlo.  A very vigorous tree (meaning lush and super-healthy; as far as size, you can easily cut it back every year) that produces fruit without hand pollination.  I was very impressed with my tree.

Where would I find this variety? Never heard of it before. Miami Florida
