My name is Berns, I am from the Philippines, I founded the Rare Fruit Society of the Philippines. I am also a fruit nursery operator and my website is www.rarefruitnursery.com.  Jay invited me in this forum.  Fruit trees that I am interested are Mangoes, Atemoya and Sugar Apples. I am interested in exchanging seeds and scions with different fruit tree growers in the world.  I am currently starting a company that will help individuals start there own fruit nursery either as a business or as a hobby. :)  I am also a member of the Philippine Fruit Association (PFA).

Welcome aboard Berns, now lets get a scion list going for the Jin Huang (Golden Queen) mango.  I'm sure there are many others with great interest in this Taiwanese mango.

For those requesting scions of Golden Queen Mango or Jin Hwang Mango from Taiwan.  Please PM your address as there are also request from growers in Florida.  The minimum scions I could send are about 5 each for an individual as we also need to propagate them this May. :)  I think Jin Hwang mangoes will weight more if planted in Sub tropical climates. :)  I am really surprised that Jin Hwang Mango has not reached yet in California and Florida.

Hey Ronald......long time.  You were a very avid Garden Web poster back when I first joined that Forum.  Glad to see you back into the fruit forum scene.  We have missed the pictures that you would post of your amazing fruit trees.  How have all your fruit trees been doing?  A picture update (in a new thread, of course) would be much appreciated by me and I am sure the rest of the members.  Specifically, how'd your lychees do this year?  We have had a total bust on lychees this year at my house.  Anyway, great to see you here.

Hey everyone,

My name is Andre, and I live with my teenage daughter in Titusville, FL. I was previously a lurker on the other forum for quite a while.
I have slowly become obsessed with tropical fruit since my first surfing trip to Costa Rica back in 2000.  After eating Rambutans, sugar apples, and papayas,  I was hooked.

I came back from that first trip and read everything I could on growing these fruit trees, only to find out they were not cold hardy.  I initially gave up, but within the last three years have started collecting. Since I have the normal 1/5 acre yard, my trees are currently in containers, but have been looking increasingly for land just about anywhere within my price range.

I currently have a few mangoes, lychees, longans, sugar apples, atemoyas, acerolas, a biriba, sapodillas, guava of a few types, a grumichama, bananas, cocoplum. pitomba, miracle fruit, starfruit, figs, pomegranates, forgetting a few but of course the list needs  future additions.

I'm am a former boat builder and home construction everything.  I finally figured out what I didn't want to be when I grew up so I went back to school and finished my Gen Ed requirements and now, I'm enrolled at UF in Horticulture of Science.

I go on surf trips to tropical areas, so in the future hope to bring back seeds and would welcome some trades.

Hi Andre, surfing and tropical fruit seed collecting sounds like a great combination! Some great surf spots also have excellent fruits: Bali, Hawaii, CR, Fiji, Australia, etc. Welcome to the group.

Hi I'm Fang.

I'm from Canton, China and have been living in San Diego for the past 10 years before moving back to LA(Burbank) for work.

I'm still in the process of collecting interesting things that I might like to eat. I have cherimoya, white sapote, jujube, lychee, longan, wampee, pummelo and other citrus, pitaya, rose apple, macadamia, loquat, guava, wax jambu, sapodilla, Passiflora incarnata, pomegranate, fuyu persimmon, surinam cherry, mulberry, grape, figs, lingaro, and some others.

I have a miracle fruit plant indoors that set some fruits this year but they all fell off a couple days ago. I see a small amount of leaf browning on the side closest to the screen door so I think it's the cool night time air.

I also have herbs: abrus precatorius, discorea batatas, madeira vine, ginseng, motherwort, white mugwort, edible lily, goji, chrysathemum...

Cherimoya, mango, white sapote grafting is really popular in SoCal. Citrus is very popular as well but I'm not sure anymore. My plants are 12 miles north of where they found the first case of HLB in California...
