3 more germinated today...


My mulberry tree leafs out at strange times and loses leaves slower on the side exposed to the streetlight but flowering/fruiting seems unchanged. Avocado, fig, white sapote, nectarine, loquat seem entirely unaffected. There's a couple others i'm unsure about.

I have a couple growing in ground, some sourced from PIN (Taiwanese and Vietnamese) and I do prefer to eat em with some yellow on em or when "rust spots" appear. They are quite hard to bite into directly- also due to their large size as well. So I cut with a knife. The taste of the skin is also a turn off for me. It can be bitter.

I am beginner who is trying to plant Longan tree in San Jose, CA.
I will have questions that i have the experts here can chime in to help guide this newbie :)
H2O2 works great with old passionfruit seeds, but not soaking, but germination in a solution of H2O2, this method is very popular in our country.
Carolyn wrote correctly in her post above.

I've seen them produce in my general area with little care from the owners
North West Broward and southwest Palm beach.

Hand pollination hasn't worked for me either.
It looks like the anthers pop out but the pollen might still be intact.
Maybe I need to go out later
Viva CO-LOM-BIA and the kogi caretakers.
Oooooh spiny, I see.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Inga as windbreak
« Last post by Finca La Isla on Today at 11:16:24 AM »
I like the idea of Jakfruit.  I’m not sure that every artocarpus would work.  But a friend has Jakfruit as a windbreak on Omotepe island and we are talking about very strong, very dry wind that blows for weeks.  Jakfruit has been easier for us to shape than most of the artocarpus we grow.

Inga is one of the trees used for shade for cacao in agroforestry schemes in CR.  It’s particularly good for mulch, firewood, biochar, etc.
