Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Comice Pear
« on: December 03, 2019, 12:24:52 PM »
Hi, I have a Comice pear in my back yard. The tree is about 6 years old and even though it blooms profusely it doesn't fruit. I just found out that it needs a pollinator, so I was thinking on getting scion wood to graft into it to hopefully get it to bloom. My question is. Does any one have any recommendations of what particular scion wood to get and where can I buy it? Thanks in advance!

I want to grow the seeds but I need to know more information about it, I didn't find much info on line. Thanks

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is happening to my mangoes?
« on: January 05, 2018, 06:52:59 PM »
I noticed that the new growth its not pushing leaves and it seems like somethin is eating them, or the leaves are not developing and just going dark. On top of that my other mango started to get brown on the leaves and a whole branch went black, so I cut it off before it reached the main trunk.
I also noticed a gummy stuff coming out of the joins of the trunk. What can I do to stop this? Please help!

Hi! for those of you who live in Costa Rica I am going for a week, and I will be in the area of  Del estadio "Colleya Fonceca 100 mtros Oeste, in the Guadalupe area.
Can anyone suggest a decent place to stay that is safe for two traveling women where we can get our food if needed it.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Graft mango question
« on: June 27, 2016, 09:56:06 AM »
This question may be clear for many of you, but I havenít found the answer yet.
Does it matter what time of mango do I use to graft another onto it?
For example, if I have a manila grafted mango, can I graft Valencia Pride or Lemon Zest on it?
I know that there are some variations in growth but if I want to top off the manila and just let the scion grow will it make a difference?
I know that there are the Indian family of mangoes and the ones that we get form Mexico. Can those two be put together?
I am just trying to figure out why some of my healthy looking grafts didnít take on a perfectly good manila and one that was turning a bit yellow grafted on a Raposa itís growing.
Used same cleft graft and clean between cuts. Is it luck or what I am doing wrong? Please help! Thanks! Xenia

I will like to buy some mango fruit this year from different sellers. I ordered some from mango factory last year but, they have a limited variety of mangoes, so if you know of someone who has more mangoes that they can eat and want to sell me some please let me know. Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Apple Mango ????
« on: April 13, 2016, 08:56:51 AM »
Hello mango experts!
In El Salvador I used to eat "mango manzano/a" I don't know the correct name for it, all I know is that when it was green it was sweet, not sour like the other mangoes in the country, I never ate it fully ripe, but I need to know if any of you know what is the scientific name for it, and where I could buy a small tree.

And can anyone explain to me why my post doesn't show as "new" topic even though I press the "new" button? Thanks in advance! Xenia

I am growing a Mamea Sapote that my mom gave me because the seed was sprouting inside the fruit. The plant is about a year old and I have it in a pot, but I was wondering that if I manage to get my hand in olosapo scion wood, could I graft into it? I love the Olosapo fruit, but dont cave much for Mamea Sapote. Thanks for any advice! XE

I know it may be earlier in the season, for the States  but I will love to know who sells and ships Ice Cream bean fruit from this forum. I grew up eating this fruit and I will love to eat it again. Thanks in advance.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Frost cloth for tree protection
« on: October 20, 2015, 04:46:18 PM »

Hello members! 
I am getting ready to cover my plants for the winter and I want to have the right material; previously I have used Burlap from Home Depot, but they still got frost damage, so I am reaching out to you guys to see if you have a better idea of what to buy instead of burlap, and where to buy it from before I actually need it. Thanks in advance!  ;)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / My air layered guava branches after 14 weeks
« on: October 14, 2015, 11:05:08 PM »
I think this was a success!
I air layered 6 branches and 4 of them took.
I just cut them and put them in pots today, but I would like to know if I should cut them down, each one is about 6 feet tall and have some great leaves, but now that they are planted maybe it would be too much for the new tree.
Advise, please?

Citrus General Discussion / what is the name of this citrus?
« on: October 09, 2015, 08:57:47 AM »
Hello! I went to visit my aunt in EL Salvador and she has this orange/mandarin tree in her front yard. The fruit is very juicy and heavy producer. She said that he tree only produced about 700 fruit this year, but last year it was about 2400!. She sells then for $6.00 per 100 fruit so she keeps track. :) No body knows what it is other than the fruit is juicy and some fruit seem more like mandarins than oranges, others more like Valencia oranges but they all taste the same. :) Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Back in 2012 on my trip to the Dominican Republic I saw this tree, it reminded me of the same tree in El Salvador that we call ;"Aceitunas" , They come in purple and white kind of yellowish like these ones, but the fruit is sweet and I used to love to eat them when I was a child. Since they look like the Olive fruit here in the states I was wondering if it is the same family but different variety and I would love to grow those here as well. Thanks in advance!  ;)

I know its not the right time, but I found some mango trees that I wanted to graft here in the US, and I managed to get some scion wood. Since I donít have the trees available for grafting right away, I was wondering how long I can keep it in the fridge before it goes bad. I went just by the description of the mango fruit since its not mango season in El Salvador and they belong to family members; it would be a surprise to me when if I get some fruit out of them. :) I just want to experiment! ;D

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What kind of fruit is this?
« on: September 27, 2015, 10:48:15 PM »
I went on vacation to El Salvador in Central America for two weeks, and I found this fruit that I had never seen before at the beach house we staying. I asked about the name and the lady there said that they call it " Aguacoco" Do any of you know what the scientific name is? I managed to get some seeds home with me, the taste was interesting but I only ate one (since I didn't know much about it)  and the birds seemed to love them.
We also ate:
Leeches, Arrayan, Jocote de corona, Mamey, Nispero, Green mangoes, Nances, Icaco, Anonas, Guanabas, apple bananas and sapotes ( That is the name I know for them) It wasn't "fruit season" so we were happy with what we got. :)

This is a cry for help form the all the Jabo collectors. ;D
Since I can't get fresh Jaboticabas ship to AZ, I want to start growing my own plants, where is the best place to get the seeds/plants shipped to AZ from? Thanks in advance! Xenia  ;)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / air layering question
« on: July 12, 2015, 03:15:25 PM »
Hello! I was wondering if once you wrapped your air laying with the moist medium around, is it necessary to keep checking the medium to keep it moist? or do I just leave it alone and just check in a few weeks so see of it took?
I have read a few articles and and seen videos in how to do it, some says leave an "air hole" others just "enclose it completely" so I don't know which one is more successful, Please help, I want to air layer my guava tree. Thanks in advance! Xenia

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Location, location.......
« on: May 29, 2015, 09:46:50 AM »
Hello Floridians! :D
If I was to move to FL when I retire, what area of FL will be the better one to start growing tropical fruit. I am thinking a small house with an acre lot to keep me busy.
I currently live in AZ, but have been to FL about 5 times and can't begin to think where to look. I have only been in Miami, Fort Myers, Sanibel Island, FL keys, FL City and Homestead FL. Mostly to visit botanical gardens and enjoy the beach.
I will love for the locals to give me their input so on my next trip I can start exploring my options. Thanks in advance!
