Is there anything left? Is the Guabiju still available?

Hey Marcos. Do you remember I placed an order from you right before the pandemic hit? The seeds were stuck in
transit for more than 8 months. They had germinated and dried out. I threw them in a pot just in case, and 5 of the
10 repanda seeds sprouted!

This is one of them. They're beautiful plants. The colors remind me of the holidays. My friend has labeled it the
Christmas plant. If you are thinking about purchasing, Marcos is great and informative seller. Highly recommended

Beautiful yard Kevin! Really inspiring. Looking forward to part two

Shame about your Yangmei on californica. I think mine are suffering the same fate :(

Just received my scions and they look great! I really appreciate all the prep work, generous amounts and bonus varieties!
Funny enough, I just grafted up some Garnets and was looking for Nelita. Maybe next time!

Thanks again Zack

Congrats Ryan!

While mostly in the 20-25 range, I get a few 30 brix fruits from my Sabara.
The fruits in the 28-30+ range taste just like Mangosteen

Leaving a little flesh is fine, but the more you leave on, the more chance of mold. For small batches,
I'll scrape off as much flesh as I can with my front teeth, no washing machine necessary. Did the entire
taproot come off? If so, that one might be a goner. Some loquats are polyembryonic. I'm not sure if they
produce multiple taproots, but give it a shot

Lujan might be my hardiest jabo. I have a couple 4yrs in 3 gallons that actually thrive outside during the
winter. Along with my Oberas, they are the earliest to put on new growth in mid to late winter, followed
by Sabara in late winter. Grimals, reds and phitranthas struggle through the cold and are just now budding.
I should note my winter lows are mostly in the low 40's with a couple upper 30 nights, so no freeze but still
promising results in the cold

My cuttings arrived today with very generous bonuses! This is a great deal on a rare plant. Thanks Kevin!

Need at least 1/2 inch diameter.
But smaller plants are good too if they meet the requirements.

It's a long shot, but doesn't hurt to ask!

Not quite .50 but I have a few in the .30-.35 range in easier to ship 7" tree pots

I had something similar happen to a Grimal a while back. It ended up losing it's leaves, but recovered over the spring. Could be a phosphorus, or other deficiency, caused by the soil being too wet and cold. I have some reds in 1 gals outside doing great under 40% shade cloth. They're rootbound and usually pretty thirsty, but because of all the rain, I haven't had to water them since early December. Jabos and pots with saucers can be risky in the winter. I'd stop watering it and put it somewhere warm like a greenhouse if you have one. No rain and no direct sun. Good luck

So Orange CORG is not compatible with standard CORG??  Did not expect that.  Would love to hear from others that attempted this cocktail. I was planning to graft my Orange CORG to a mature CORG this spring as a backup and with hope that a diverse pollinator would improve fruit set.

A failed graft or two, or even ten, doesn't necessarily mean incompatibility. Good luck with your CORG. I'll be attempting some yellow and orange grafts this spring too.

Don't get discouraged K-Rimes. Keep experimenting!

Pretty sure that's a wine, not a variety of Jaboticaba. I think they use regular red Jaboticaba to make it

I might have a couple Grimal and Branca Vinho available. What diameter are you looking for?

I just ordered a batch of jabo seeds and they were super fresh and viable. Great deals!

Myer lemons are useless.

Could you please elaborate further on your comment on Meyer Lemons?

What are it's cons?

Does it have any pros?

True it is less tart than a true lemon, but I have a tree and they seem to make a nice glass of lemonade.

Meyer lemon is the most useful fruit in my yard. I don't have to buy juices anymore. I make a frozen lemonade concentrate with different
flavors. Loquat, jabo, pomegranate, peach, plum, tangerine and whatever else I can find in my yard. The frozen concentrates last all year,
but the pomegranate and Sabara jabo lemonades disappear the fastest. I also freeze unsweetened juice for marinades and dressings.
One complaint? I guess they're a bit over-productive, which can be a problem for some

Thanks for the seeds. I appreciate the extras!

78 79 :o

My cuttings arrived fast and look great, along with generous extras! Gonna be a busy weekend! ;D

Thanks Kevin!

Congrats man. I just wish it wasn't 150 miles away on a Wednesday night. Will it be live streamed or recorded?

They look fine. Don't worry too much about the direction of the roots. They'll find their way down on their own. Soil looks a little dry and I would recommend some kind of dome to keep the humidity up. Tropical sprouts are very delicate and susceptible to dry air

The guavas look so beautiful. Congratulations on your wonderful results.

Thanks. Still have 2 plants left. Would love to see what you've got growing in AK
