hell ya!  tyler is my fav!!!!

tyler is special

This season Ive gone through multiple farms; private and public.  I've tried imported mangoes from India and Pakistan.

The one group of people I was most pleased with are the Ensey family.  They're a good bunch of people and their genetic pool is insane.  Jeff and Angie sent me a large box of mangoes that had some of the longest shelf lifes ever.  The mangoes were so clean and you can tell they were grown with love.  I havent gone through everything yet but last night I ate a Tyler, a Tywin, and a Orange Delicious.  These people grow CANDY and their proprietary cultivars should be shouted out even thought they dont sell grafted trees. 


I am very dissapointed. I thought the mystery of the jabuticabra would be solved in this video...

 ;D ;D ;D

but amigbro, it has been solved!

it's this damn humanoid-bat hybrid that's been eating my fruits!

Video flagged for offensive accent imitations

good thing it's just a surinam cherry and not a paulista, that would be harder to replace.

nice Jordan, your place is goin off this season!

this Fri, 5pm, Greendreams youtube channel...get ready to rock... ;D

I really enjoyed this vid, amigbro! But you did not show any pouteria and annona. Will there be a part 2?

thank you very much Amigbro!

lol part 2 coming!  I hear maybe close to 40min long like the first one!

we did film my Annona collection, but i'm not sure how much of it will be used...they were not really fruiting heavily.  I think we hit a few Pouterias, but not many...i have narrowed my Pouteria collection down, i mainly have sapodilla, ross sapote, canistel, and one P. coelomatica.

Nice video Adam, your place is amazing plinia haven!! I'm amazed at how well your red orchard of 64 tree's are doing! ;) 8) Hat's off to Pete, he did a great job!

Thanks Robert!!  you've been down since day 1  :)

What critters are your main culprit?
Birds? Rodentia? Iguanas? Humans?


squirds and buirrels

cool pics 8)

Well, my jabo is three feet tall, in a 20" pot, and is fruiting.
Not enough at any one time for jam yet, but still fun to suck on as I work in the greenhouse...


nice!  interesting how they fruit near branch tips in low light, or maybe due to higher latitudes

That is red-hybrid Jaboticaba Kevin. Looks really good.

heck ya Kevin, good job.

let the fruit sit as long as possible if u want em as soon as they start turning red if you don't mind tart.

it's hard to let them get fully ripe without animals jacking them first.

very close  ;D 8)

me and the elves who help around here picked some anomaly fruit today!  Yumballz!

What is the minimum temperature that this trees can stand without dying or losing the fruit?
about 35F, but humidity has to be high for fruit not to drop.

and kill temp is assumed to be around 23-26F depending on duration, and other conditions.

i think some people just don't know how to eat them, and get them too early, and that is why u hear so much about flavor quality variation...all the ones i've encountered are sweet, u just have to let them ripen all the way, don't eat them when they're still yellow/green, it has to be fully colored and getting soft.

congrats on the fruits, i got them planted out here, but freezes of 2017 hammered them down to the they are coming back, after being only roots for almost a whole year...very strong plant handling temp range of about 23F-110F, floods and drought

almost opened on June 5th...24 day ago...

that make most sense, mine get that red growth sometime, and fruit shape can be just like cherry rio..

pretty sure i mentioned this is most likely the ID a while ago
Could quite possibly be Eugenia calycina

starting to blush!  :)

that is a great pic, i'm sharing on my FB page!!

great Tropical Fruit Hunter photo!!

I don't know, Adam. Doesn't look like much of a fruit hunting gun to me.
Now, THIS is a fruit hunting gun! Took me down a nice bunch of bananas with it!
Of course, at $8 per bullet, mostly I just use the bayonet to poke around for grubs...

(Thanks for the shirt, Jay!)

Ok, who's next???
