Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Annona season 2023 (FL)
« on: May 23, 2023, 06:45:47 PM »
Been picking mangos for the last few days and I saw this guy on the tree.
I'm sure the recent rains helped.
I know in the true tropics they get bigger but this is the biggest I got from my tree so far

Mods: move to discussion section please

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is this sabara 5, crown 1-3?
« on: April 09, 2023, 01:38:46 PM »
It's been a few years growing this mystery jaboticaba.
Since then Ive has a few forums members who know a lot more than I do on plinias check it out.
I bought this from a forum member and it ended up not being a red. All good though, he told me the original source was pine Island nursery. He must have gotten it around 2015.
I'm leaning to sabara 5 but I can't find much description about the tree.
Some observations I've seen from the tree is that the tree flushes new growth at the same time, leaves start off brown then expand into green and it's very brittle.
What do you guys think?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Caimito (starapple) get worms?
« on: March 26, 2023, 08:09:14 AM »
Hey guys I've been noticing a few guava type worms in a few of my caimito this year.
Last year the fruit were pretty clean.
Anyone else get this problem? Are there solutions?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Candy Corn Mango (and Watermelon Splash Mango)
« on: February 28, 2023, 10:36:06 AM »
Does anyone have any info on Candy Corn mango?
ZHPP says:
"Med Size Fruit, Very Sweet, True Mango Flavor"

Tropical acres farms says:
"Candy Corn was a chance seedling selected by the Zill High-Performance Plants nursery.
It reportedly has an Indochinese-type flavor.
We obtained a Candy Corn tree in 2020 for evaluation in West Palm Beach. Thus far it has grown very slow and compactly, perhaps dwarf-like. It first flowered in 2022 but did not hold onto any fruit. We are optimistic it can produce mature fruit for the first time in 2023."

I'm trying to not get involved with more mangos but I would happily plan something that had a rich classic mango flavor (something like Baileys Marvel)
I have enough Indochinese ones

Concerning Watermelon Splash mango:
I heard a worker from ZHPP mention it in a recent video from fruitful trees, does anyone know the row/column number of this tree or anything about it?

I have around 40 red jaboticabas in square one gallon pots.
Selling them for 25 each. If you want a tray worth (8) I'll sell it for $15 each, ($120) total.

Local pickup only

I got a few things ready in these nice shippable 3.5" pots.
I can fit 4 in a medium USPS, shipping is free if you buy 4 plants. Otherwise, it's $15
Edit: sorry I do mention but i can only ship to the states that allow it without any certificate. No CA, AZ, etc

3.5" Pot - Vexator Jaboticaba - $10

3.5" Pot - Red Hybrid Jaboticaba - $15

As the title said I'm selling red hybrid and blue (vex.) jaboticaba.
That red are from my tree the blue are from f&s Park.

Heres a typical shot. The reds don't like my city water on their leaves so I plan to pot them up and put them on drip.

I'm selling them in a set of 4 (mix and match) for $50. Shipping included.
Can't ship to CA or other states that don't allow it.
Pm me if interested.

I should have enough to fill a few boxes.

If anyone nearby wants some budwood.
I have few extra White Pirie and I'm going to trim some branches off my Peach Cobbler.
I'm in Coral Springs FL
Today only (9/3/22)

Most of my atemoya are fruiting this year.
Apparently I got African pride scions instead arka sahan when I ordered them years ago.
So anyone who ordered arka sahan from me got African pride as well.
Sorry for the mix up, I never wanted AP, I was aiming to trial as many of the new annonas in soflo so this is a step back. I might try topworking it in spring.

Below is a pic of a calostro and an AP I picked this week.
AP is smaller

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Khans Edible Oasis Video Yard tour
« on: May 23, 2022, 11:48:26 PM »
Hey everyone, I was trying to document my yard over the years with pictures but now that most of the trees have grown into each other it seems like a video makes more sense.
First up annonas

Let me know what you think or if I should add any more info.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Selling 1 gallon grafted annonas
« on: May 03, 2022, 11:16:51 AM »

Hey everyone.
Over the last few years, I've been trying to transition my nursery over to annonas.
it's a very small operation since I'm doing this at my house a 0.180 acre lot.
There is only so much scaling up I can do so I decided that selling 1 gallon trees would be the best for everyone.
I'm mainly trying to spread these other annonas around, I remember how hard it was to find a Dream when I was first starting.

I got most of this budwood a few years ago from forum member JF.
The only ones I got to fruit so far were calastro and birula but I have been neglecting them. (Didn't hand pollinate or fertilize much)

Please post questions on this thread so everyone can benefit.

One word of warning. Annonas (atta type) are finicky and 1 gallon trees are finicky so only buy if you can provide the right environment for them to thrive. (Our extra moisture can kill them)
Also whenever the tree grows to size please make the budwood available to the community (sell it for whatever you want, I just want the genetics to be around long enough so we can determine what works best in south Florida)

Here's a list of what I have to sell. ($50 each)
7 4 arka sahan,
3 1 calastro,
4 1 cherilata,
4 0 dream
2 1 Hawaii pink mammoth.
All of the above are in cherimoya rootstock.

I might have a few more cherilatas coming in a month on Montana rootstock.

Local pick up only. 
PM me if interested

Tropical Fruit Discussion / First mangos from 2022
« on: April 23, 2022, 09:37:44 AM »

Had my first two mangos of the season this week.
I had a small manalita I found yellow on the tree and I had a coshall from the first flowering in November (in the picture).

Starting picking a few cogshall, hollow stems on most so that's a good sign

Hey guys I have a few trees in ground that I'm selling.

This Rain forest plum has been in the ground for around 4 years planted from a 15g it's around 6-7ft now. It really benefits from lots of water. Even with my in ground irrigation system during the dry season it doesn't look the prettiest.
So far this is my favorite Eugenia.
Flowers and fruits in winter. With more water it flowers for like half the year.

Dig it up and it's yours for $70

Some story with this trompo canistel from zhpp.
I just don't like canistel enough to want a tree. I tried.
Dig it up and it's yours for $40.

I'm planning on planting a olosapo here instead. Hopefully that does better for me

I got together with a few forum members so we can offer a decent variety of scions so it's a little more convenient to order.
I'm taking orders until Feb 26th and plan on sending out all the packages the week of Feb 28th.
Scions will be around 1/4 - 3/8 inches in diameter and will be cut to fit in a small flat rate box.
I plan to pick it on Sunday and put it in a ziptop bag with a damp paper towel (Not wrapped)

The minimum order is 12, minimum per variety is 3
First come first serve.

Shipping available (2-3 day small flat rate box from USPS) $10 for S+H [US ONLY]

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Top 5 jaboticaba to grow in limestone soils
« on: January 04, 2022, 07:41:20 PM »
I've seen a million threads like this but with mangos.
I'm sort of surprised there hasn't been much talk with all the hype the last few years.
I'm no expert on plinias or myrciarias but I'm familiar with some of the older ones.

So the question is if you had room to plant five in the ground without a frost concern what would you pick?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Import lychee trees from China?
« on: December 16, 2021, 02:01:20 PM »
All this Yangmei talk has me wondering about the possibility of doing a group order for Lychee trees.
I searched around for a little bit on google but I couldn't find much information.

Can any of the forum members who have experience importing trees from China give me a breakdown of the process involved?
I'm completely unaware of how to start.

I'm sure there are plenty of new varieties there for sale and I'd guess there is enough interest here to order a few hundred.

Birula - 7g - $90
Calastro - 3g - $70
Dream - 7g - $80
Dream - 3g - $65
Tropic Sun - 3g - $65

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Selling; Sapodilla plugs
« on: October 21, 2021, 04:27:17 PM »
I have some sapodilla seedling (Alano) growing in deep insert seedling plugs (~1.5" square, by 4" deep).
The seedlings are like 4-6" by my estimation.
It's about time for me to pot it up to 1g and I don't really have the space for them.

<br /><br />

I can fit around 4 plugs in a in a small flat box. (I'll take them out of the tray and put them in a ziptop bag.)
$10 a plug to the states that allow it.

I'm looking to expand my non red reticulata collection
Does anyone have the vivian variety (seeds, seedlings, Budwood, Grafted) for sale?

I have a few grafted annona plants (Tropic Sun, Calastro a few others) and other annonas seedlings that I can trade
Buying outright works for me too.
