The link is not working (on my end). Problem loading.

Same here

I have the same issue with one of my pomegranate trees. I'm afraid to try anything right now because it
has 2 fruit growing on it. My other 2 pom. trees are growing up straight so far.

Wow, that's crazy cheap for jackfruit. It's 2$ / pound here. Sometimes 3$.

One of these days I will try one of these!!! I have no ideal if I would like it, but I see a lot of people buying them, some are 20 +  pounders.

Was that at Sanwa Farmer's Market?

I didn't see any at Mustang last weekend.

Reminds me of the week following double inguinal hernia surgery.

Coconut Cream seems to do well in Florida.

for you.

Easy to tell it's fake; the blue section should be on the left.  ;)

I think this one and the pink pumpkins are my favorites:

You're lucky. Mine bloomed like crazy and now has only 2 fruits developing.  :(

I have mine in a pot and noticed this afternoon that it's about to bloom (I hope). It is not as "green" as I would like
and amended to lower the PH (Haven't checked lately to see what it is now).

Good luck with your new Lychee tree...if it were mine I would plant it right away (as long as you are okay about possibly losing) a few fruits. For me the benefit of planting it now so it can start growing sooner rather than later is worth losing a few fruits...but that's just me  ;)

Last year I had blooms but a late frost in March damaged the flowers, this year looks to be a better year. Fingers crossed I will get some this year  :)

Your tree looks great. Mine had a lot of blooms this year but hasn't produced any fruit. My large Kent has very few as well.

Hope you have better luck!

For those who successfully germinated Myrica rubra, what did you do? Do the seeds need stratification?

I germinated them in coir in a Ziploc bag without any scarification and 5 of the 10 seeds sprouted. They are
slow growers and I will try and adjust the acidity as EvilFruit stated.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Would you accept a tree in this condition?
« on: February 21, 2019, 06:04:37 PM »
I would not accept that Tree, is that a third graft on the very top?

Not certain bottom 2 notches are grafts. But yeah, that's the graft way up top. Still has tape.

Hopefully they respond on Monday

That is one "butt-ugly" grafting job.  :o

Got seeds directly from Luc in June of 2015. Seeing the first flowers on the tree today (2/11/19)-- so just under 4 years. Tree planted in full sun here on the North Shore of Oahu with irrigation when it gets dry. I actually planted two trees in one hole but only see flowers on one of them for now. Somehow the flowers managed to stay on despite the 50-60 mph winds we had here yesterday. 


Wayne Clifton wraps the exposed top in parafilm and sticks them in a pot.

So do I, and use a clear plastic water bottle.

OK Folks, Buddy tape is here (perforated too). Manufacturer raised the prices again in 2019.

tapes are being sold on Amazon and eBay for over $50/roll and we sold last year for $24/ea I believe. This time around cost could be $25, not sure. plus shipping $5. If you order more than one tape, shipping would be flat $8 Priority Mail.

I want to get commitment from all you folks who are interested so I can place a sizable order to bring the cost or 2019 increase down to close to price as last year. Tapes would be from fresh 2019 batch, and possibly available towards mid Feb.

Will ship with USPS First Class Mail, will give you tracking number. If you are worried about lost mail, the pay Priority Mail Shipping.

Note: Orders are first come first serve, I ordered extra but those who send payments will be refunded if payments on orders in front of you result in running out of tape. So dont wait.

Send Payments via PayPal as "Friends and Family" Option to, please indicate the following:
1. Your Name and Forum Name
2. Your mailing address
3. Your email address
4. Your choice of Perforated or Non Perforated and quantity of each.

Note: This is a Non-Profit Effort on my part to help fellow gardener friends because I enjoy helping others. All I ask in return is if I have request for some budwood and you happen to have it, please share in kind.
If you're unsure of the tape's cost, how much should we send you?

Looks like free shipping offer is no longer available.

Where is this?

An inland town at the central region of Sarawak and the capital of Sibu District in Sibu Division, Sarawak, Malaysia.

I am looking for a place to purchase of 50LB bag of rice hulls in South Florida.  I was wondering if anyone knows where to purchase this.  Thank you before hand.

A.M. Leonard now has free shipping:|dc&pcrid=313239356315&pkw=am%20leonard&pmt=e&plc=&kc=&prd=&utm_source=google&utm_term=am%20leonard&utm_campaign=&utm_medium=cpc&slid=&prd=&pgrid=9594763432&ptaid=kwd-682231100&gclid=Cj0KCQiA1NbhBRCBARIsAKOTmUtII-ewhidVPWxI3eVU8gS2md2k91yhPxaUhqeaAoEGAkLUsSZR4dwaAkkBEALw_wcB

Hi Mike, I did try it but unfortunately the free shipping does not apply to rice hulls.

That's a shame. They did previously but I guess too many people took advantage of a good deal.
