Ok so I thought this would be good to share with the group…
Read as many papers about Yangmei as you can. Like Simon mentioned, most of them were written in China with those conditions, and not for people here in the US, but they still have good info.
I’ve learned a lot

These suckers can tolerate water…I was on vacation to the avocado land this week and just got back. My dad set up a sprinkler system for the plants so they wouldn’t dry out while we were gone…well I forgot to tell him that every day water is too much…I remembered that when I was in Mexico so too late. My greenhouse is a mess with all the plants ok but here’s the important part….
The Yangmei were in a tub so the RKN wouldn’t go out in the ground. I also put paper towels to stop any spray of soil. But the thing flooded( sitting in an cm or so of water) not like flooded …they were sitting in standing water for the most part. 8 days. I assume the water dried during the day so I can’t say the take standing water, but water everyday like this…I am happy
But they look freakin good! The male has been going off!!! I’ll upload a pic later! Wow! Every day they were watered in a tub. But they didn’t slow down at all! This just shows that good roots have developed now and there is no worry of over watering them like when I just got them.

Also, is anyone interested in identifying their trees gender? Marta and really good plants does dna testing.
10 samples is $200
I don’t have 10 teees, but if I could get together enough, maybe it would be worth it to do a run?
I have 2 plants I want to ID
If you want to be on this maybe list, pm me or post here.

1. Rootstock sucker Jaboticaba45
2. Male tree Jaboticaba45
3. Sucker FV Fruit Freak

Well there's one at bellamy but it's like 50 bucks...maybe when i get paid next week but i'm thinking about it xD

I have a few calyptranthes  and myrcias(unidentified from the island) but how to even send....maybe with a permit. Also Got Olosapo and Sunsapote seedlings.
Thanks man it’s only $5!
He must’ve just released them lol

just don't take em all xD
If you get permits and stuff maybe we can trade myrtaceous plants...look at my list i may get more.
If you got any seeds we could work something out. I need to update my permit later.

Probably around 40-50% takes.

I had one that took but after I unwrapped it and went to plant it a couple days later it snapped off the union. It had only healed in one small section, about a mm or two.  They certainly
are difficult to graft.
Thanks for your story. I wonder if approach grafting is the right way to go? Problem is that I suck at approach grafting. I probably ruined one of my plinias cause of that lol.
I guess the best way is to mass graft if possible and just eat the losses.

A couple updates on my in ground plants:
Seedling full sun

Seedling in shade cage

The grafted squad from the last shipment:
On Myrica californica, grafted by myself
Don't remember which is which, but I succesfully grafted: Biqi, Dongkui, Crystal, WuSu

From Beicadad shipment:
Biqi on rootstock from China

I’m not sure if you mentioned this, but may I ask what your approx grafting percentage was?

I believe it’s called apical dominance. You should cut off the top of the rootstock or at least bend it over below.

I wonder where Fruitsy Farms got the Black Crystal. He said, he didn't join the group buy
After talking to him, he said he has been growing these rare trees for a long time…he’s probably us time to propagate them by himself which he has done.
Cool stuff!

And whatever you do and whoever you ship with, do not order or ship packages during the holidays…anywhere from December 10 to January something, the package will not arrive on time!

Judging by your posts, I find it hard to believe there are any Myrtaceae species or varieties in people's collections here in the U.S. that you don't already have in your collection. Imagine how large your collection would be if you had some land in a region where those species could grow outside unprotected. ;D
Well thanks…I still have a long way to go. A very long way. But I’m slowly building up the collection!

Last night I was re reading the Yangmei thread from the 2012 start. We have come a looong way! I recommend you read it. Many peoples mistakes and tips are in there.
Out of the 2 orders I purchased 6 trees
2 from first order that I assigned to someone in CA to take care of which died(no hate to you…thanks for doing it! Everyone else’s died anyways!)
And four from second order.
I got 3/4
Dk male
An hai
And black crystal which died….it pushed and had good roots…no idea?
They have been chugging along. For now….I’ve been acquiring rootstock for the long haul grafts.
The best looking is the male, but everyone else has been good, and I think mine are the biggest out of everyone’s in the march order…send me a picture if you think otherwise! Of course anything could happen and my trees could die…it’s a daily process.
I’ve been trating for RKN
Reading off the earlier thread, in ground in 7b might not be the best. I’ll stick to pots until I have more stock to do experiments.

I’m glad there are a lot more trees in the us and that we can start getting scions if all else fails….if another order takes place, I’d buy a couple trees just for scions! Based off of other peoples experiences, it’s best to graft right when you receive the tree. Even from the very first order by beicadad, the tree I got, although weak and old from shipping, the branches looked very fresh. Unfortunately I had no idea and no rootstock so I just watch it die back to nothing.

If anyones interested, there is a black carbon being sold on eBay auction ending tonight by Fruitsy Farms! Check him out! I’ve got some cool stuff from him before!

For future reference for me and anyone else, here is some progress pics.

For me, light is best. If it’s something small or that can be small, it will stay small. Before I ship, I’ll even give it a few throws…I’ve shipped out hundreds of plants and not one has been damaged or lost by usps…but if you ship heavier things that need pots or fruits, good luck to you. It’s hard to pack heavier things as they throw the boxes. Something light=less impact. For heavier things I’ll use stakes to brace the pot on the box so it doesn’t move around no matter if they throw it. For fruit, it’s just hope and pray.

Speaking of hope, usps clutched up and delivered lychee to me in only 2 days. But they suck also as I’ve been waiting on a box of mangoes for over a week and a half.

Also having received plants from many people, I can say a few things.
Please don’t wrap the whole box in tape…it just makes the box a greenhouse. And it’s wasting tape.
The main goal of shipping plants is to secure the plant to the box so it doesn’t move around. That’s it. Pretty simple. Just many ways of doing so and some techniques work better.

Yep…I think the best bet is just order through Bellamy trees! No hassle at all! Seeds already in the US!

I’m embarrassed to admit I have killed 5 mango trees either bought from known online nurseries or local nursery like Champa. As luvfig said most of these are likely from Florida which will thrive for 2 to 3 years then die. I did everything according to the growing mangos in ca thread, not letting it fruit, afternoon shade, winter protect, etc. Mine property has sandy soil. I have avacado, citrus, anonna trees fruiting and growing well. I just purchased 5 turpentine seeds and buried them in the ground 18 inches. I’m impatient and wants some home grown mangos while i still have teeth.
18 inches seems a bit deep to plant the seeds. They will die.
I have a m-4 on Kent rootstock I can send you
I wish you the best in growing mangoes!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fruit Identification please

From the Mexican jungles
Haven’t tasted it
Small like a pea

That is great news! Nice job NissanVersa!!

Re identity: Then what is g. intermedia?

I concur with elouicious, understood them as being different: g. intermedia is lemon drop mangosteen, and g. brasiliensis is superior lemon drop.

Have them both and others, they appear distinct even amonst similar looking garcinias.
I by no means am an expert…I’m just relaying info from what he thinks…the fruits do look different, but I’ve seen (and tasted) several variations going from very round to slightly pointed to very pointed. And some are orange and some are very yellow. Differs from tree to tree. Check out his videos.
