Were you successful in your grafting efforts to add this " Jay Ram " canistel to your collection , and if so how long do you think it would be until bud wood would be available ? Maybe a couple years ?

 William

Yes scions will not be available of this canistel for at least a couple of years.
Oscar,
Have your "Most Outrageously Delicious Canistel Ever" grafts fruited yet?  Do they consistently taste outrageously delicious?  Is scion wood available?  Any info on tree size, vigor and precociousness would be great too, thanks.

Too bad.

Did anyone who grafted a couple of years ago have this variety?

It would be nice to get this growing in different areas.  Preserve the selection.

also interested Oscar, I had a horrible Canistel from Frankies, and now I'm convinced mine I planted from seed will be horrible as well.

On Maui I had great canistel, paired with cheese and crackers was amazing.

That Maui canistel looked like Abiu in shape, so much that my friend gave me an Abiu and I assumed it was the same variety.

Calling all Big Islanders. As far as I know, April is yellow sapote season. Hoping someone can sell seeds of this cv., should be somewhat easier to deal with than scions.
I would not recommend people deal with Fruit Lovers

Still interested.
I moved my potted seedling into a larger sized bottomless pot so it is for all intents and purposes in the ground now.  It is a tad over a foot and a half tall and ready to be grafted.  Looking for a good variety to put on one of the branches while I wait to try the fruit from the seedling.

I have four different varieties of canastels
seems trumpo to me is the best.. If left on the tree to ripen nice and moist and heavy producer.
another one I haven't heard mentioned much because it is touted as not being a heavy producer is fairchild number 2
This tree is amazingly productive every year and it's pretty good too..

How cold hardy is canistel anyway?  Some websites say 23F some say 28F.
Is it cold hardier than mango, sapodilla or some other mid-20s F fruit tree?

I think its probably closer to mid-high 20s for a mature tree. Lychee, mango, and sapodilla are likely more cold tolerant. I was forecast for 28* for 6+ hours, and my 5' in-ground Ross Sapote has completely defoliated, but time will tell. I mounded mulch/compost around the trunk 2' high, and haven't removed it yet or done a scratch test. I took some 3g mamey, canistel, and green sapote inside that 28* night, but left them out for some nights between 32-35, and they've suffered leaf damage to varying degrees. My other container plants, which were out for the 32-35 nights, are barely showing any impact from cold (mangos, sapodilla, Luc's garcinia, lemon drop mangosteen, seashore mangosteen, allspice, rose apple, avocados, kwai muk).

The following is in the ground, and relatively unaffected at all by 28*: lychee, jabo, starfruit (still holding/maturing fruit), peanut butter fruit (AKA PBF, just finished fruiting 12/30), CoRG, pitanga, pitomba, acerola, pitangatuba, Savannah Cherry, white sapote, passion fruit, white guava, strawberry guava, tamarillo, mysore raspberry, jujube, curry leaf

Somewhat impacted:
20' Ice Cream Bean, yellow jabo, guarana, papaya (holding fruit), banana (holding fruit), 25' moringa (dropped 50% of growth)

Heavily Impacted:
Ross Sapote, 4' jackfruits (80% defoliation, buds burnt), 6' orange hog plum (100% defoliation, appears alive), solanum pachyandrum AKA Jolly Rancher Fruit (died back to main stem near ground, putting out small shoots)
