Mutingia calabura var. Yellow fruit




Give it a much much much much much bigger pot.
Here is my 1 year seedling of yellow muntingia, almost 3m with 6cm trunk at the base.
It was around 70-80cm 2 months ago at home, now it's inside the greenhouse in a raised bed.

Do you have the red usual one? I love to have it too...

Nope, no flower yet :(
Mine is yellow too, from seeds from Spaugh from this forum. Had many seedling, but I brought them in too late, some storm killed all of them except this one which was already safe at home because it was the most vigorous.
I think the temps in the greenhouse are too high, and although it does grow well it doesn't flower.  Maybe in autumn I'll get fruit.
The acerola did the same too, it dropped all the flowers once the hot weather kicked in, but the plant still grow vigorously. I can move the Acerola outside, but the Muntingia is planted in the greenhouse. I plan to put some sprinkler inside to keep the temps low and insert a fan to move the air outside.
I never tasted the yellow, had 2 red one from a nursery which I loved, but I killed one each year that's why this is in the greenhouse.
I will air layer the branch and move them outside next year while safekeeping the mother plant.
Don't put them in the ground if you have clay soil, I thought since it has roots so vigorous it wouldn't have problem with clay, but the one I bought last year and planted in ground didn't grow at all, while the first one from the same nursery was kept in a big vase with sandy soil and grew at the same speed as the current one.

The red one taste like sweetened almonds, I loved them, hope the yellow taste the same.
Don't know if you have sweetened almonds there, they looks like this:

You can get the red one from Fabio Maio, I think you already know his nursery.

3 new pups on Dajiao banana tree

It looks really good! Is it seedless? and any comments on taste?

Hi! Yes they are seedless.

"It is an ABB type from China, but I do not know the subgroup or what its really related to other than other Da Jiao types (there are multiples). It is a good banana, similar in taste and texture to common 'Namwah'. ABB types, partly because of their high M. balbisiana parentage, tend to be very vigorous and quick growing. They are not M. sikkimensis/M. balbisiana hybrids.

This photo from China shows 2 types. You may have to view it full size in the gallery to read the names."
