Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Introduce Yourself
« Last post by 2tall on Today at 12:40:45 AM »
Hi, Everyone!

Tropical grower from Thailand. Been living here the last 11 years and started collection and growing fruit trees 2 years ago in my 4000m2 garden.
Up to about 70 different kind of fruit trees now and around 250 fruit trees in total plus some hard wood trees some ex:
Dalbergia cochinchinensis, shorea roxburghii, Anisoptera Costata, Neolamarckia Cadamba, Dipterocarpus Alatus etc

I also grow hot peppers, 20 different varieties.

Learning as times goes by and hope to catch up on some great info here at TFF.

Hi amigo I am not sure if you have the book "A Guide to Wild Fruits of Borneo" by  Anthony Lamb.

It might help you ID a few of the fruits?

It is a great book for anyone else interested in the fruits of Borneo by the way...

Oscar: are you selling this book? If not where can I get a copy?
No i don't sell it. I just got my own copy in the mail from abebooks.com. It's a very nice book, lots of color photos, many rare species. A definite must have for serious collectors.

I have never seen corpaci lemon for sale. 
When I say interesting varieties, I mean less common.  There are probably 4 mandarin varieties, 2 pommelo, 4 lemon, 4 grapefruit, and the usual limes and lemons.  Pretty much if you can find the variety in a grocery store, they sell it.
So, anything that isn't common but you eat out of hand, I would like to try to grow.

What do you guys/gals think about LEDs on Quantum boards such as the HLG lights? I’ve been doing some serious reading on new light technology and the Quantum board LEDs have very high efficiency with a Photosynthetic Photon efficacy of around 2.00 umol/J or higher.

I’m just learning about this new technology and even data that is 1-2 years old can be considered out dated. From what I understand, these LEDs spread out on Quantum Boards reduce hot spots that can occur with COBs. Hot spots with significantly higher PPFD than surrounding areas still occur with QBs but it seems that the light is more evenly spread out.

Here’s some data that shows PPEs of various lighting technologies from Michigan State university. The technology is advancing so fast that the data may be outdated by the time you read this.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What months do Garcina trees flower in Florida
« Last post by kalan on December 06, 2019, 09:10:22 PM »
In SoFL my hombromianas are the fastest of those you listed as well. I have two now over 7ft and 5-6yrs old and neither have flowered. My only flowering garcinia is a precocious acuminata (4 yrs old now and 3ft tall) it bloomed twice this past year, once in around March and once in July - and it still has the fruit on it! My Lucs are apparently still too young at 6 yrs old.

But I am interested in hearing from others as well about blooming times.
