Greetings, I am based in South India in a coffee growing district called Coorg. We enjoy sub-tropical weather climate here and are able to grow a wide variety of fruits. Unfortunately we have a lot of fruit bats around as well as birds and frequent wild elephant damage so we take what is left.

Thanks very much to the admins of this forum for providing a great platform to exchange information and make friends.

Looking forward to participating more on this platform.

Cheers
Bops

Hi to everyone. My name is Wayne. I'm from Cairns, North Queensland, Australia and I am retired and I am living in Da Nang, Vietnam. A friend in Queensland recommended I join this site because of the availability of many tropical fruits in Vietnam. I'm hoping I can help people track down seeds for fruits that grow here in Vietnam.

Hello all!

I'm Louis, an avid amateur fruit hunter. As you might have guessed from my username, my favourite fruit in the world is the Cempedak, the CH28 variety to be precise. Looking forward to learning more about fruit here!

Thanks :-)

Casmiroa cultivation and alcohol via fermentation are a great match, once your trees mature, you will have plenty of sugary fruit to produce alcohol with.

Hi, I just started reading this forum to better my knowledge of growing tropical fruit trees.  I  am a newbie, and most of my knowledge are from youtube.  I started my backyard garden last winter Nov/Dec 2018.  One of my mistake is that I planted in the winter, and another mistake was planting the trees before grade.  So when it rains, water pools up around the tree.  I went out and bought:

1. jackfruit - died from cold, and heavy rain - the leaves all died, and the root was rotted/red color.
2. 2 longan from seeds, i think may give up on them. I want fruit now now now.
3. atemoya - from seed, almost gave up on it.
4. lychee - died
5. chico sapote - thought it died from the rain. pulled it out of the dirt, and put it in a pot. it is still small, but show signs of growth, and flowering.
6. Barbados cherry - tree growing very large, and flowers, no fruit.
7. Pierce and El Bumpo Cherimoya
8. Papaya from seeds - died from the cold winter and rain.
9. Passion fruit
10.  alphonso mango
11. Thai Jujube / thornless - Planted in July 2019, it's fruiting now.
12. 3in1 apple tree from Home Depot
13. 2 grafted Atemoya trees. Planted in March 2019, both are fruiting now.  I am see fruit drops, which is sad. Each tree has about 10-15 fruits
14. Soursop from seeds in container
15. 2 Guava airlayers that I did myself from my mom's tree.
16. dragon fruits from cuttings.
17. Star fruit
18. jabo

Hello,
My name is Larry. I live on the Arkansas / Louisiana border in zone 8A. I just got into citrus about 4 or 5 years ago. I have several citrumelo trees planted in my yard. I just added some Thomasville citrangerquats. I also have two Kimbrough Satsumas on the south side of my house that I give minimal protection during the winter. I have dozens of oak trees from around the world and also native chinquapin trees.  I just made my first successful citrus grafts this year. I also have access to a huge grove of trifoliate orange trees that have been growing at a old house place in Arkansas for at least 100 years. I used seedlings from those trees to do my first grafts.

Larry

Hey,
I'm Tanay. From San Jose, CA in zone 9b

I currently have two small 1-2 year old mango (manila) and cherimoya (booth/white) trees. I also have a very large lemon tree (unknown cultivar) and am interested in growing Manilkara Zapote (aka Chikoo in India) and grafting Sitaphal (Indian sugar apple; annona squamosa) onto my Cherimoya tree.

Aside from this, I also have small jackfruit, longan, lychee, dragonfruit, and apricot seedlings that are growing, hopefully they will survive!
