Citrus General Discussion / Re: Dobashi Beni Satsuma - Anyone Growing This?

Cara Cara is delicious. I wish it wasn't essentially sterile (super low pollen + not sure somatic mutations are heritable) that taste deserves to be bred out.

Congrats on the success! I was planning on the same cross.

What color fruit are these from?

I tried to get some shipped from mexico but ALL cacti are cites protected there including common ones and non natives.

  Unfortunately, the PQML vine was dead like Kaz mentioned in the thread.

I'm sorry for the loss.
Do you know of anyone who has living cuttings or survivors?

Sad to hear that, I hope someone grafts it out or makes rooted cuttings.
I too tried to root it as well and wasn't successful but hoped to try again.

The really slow growth low vigor is the problem. I get a lot of dwarf types that barely grow at all from grape seed. I get fed up and just pull the up. Curiously both excessive inbreeding and excessive outbreeding cause this. Self pollinated seedlings or similar highly inbred ones. Inbred ones if you cross them again vigor is restored and they turn normal. Or two species of grape that are far apart or complex hybrids some of them come out vigorous some come out stunted depending how the genes mix but that will eventually breed out of them as well and return to normal in a few generations if the abnormal ones are tossed. Could be a mutation but inbreeding and crossbreeding is the most common cause. A plant might pollinate itself. A small percent will have semi normal growth despite being inbred but many will be stunted or weird.

I just don't have the patience to wait years on a slow growing plant.
Grafting and embryo rescue/ tissue culture are used for weak intergeneric crosses for some of the reasons youve stated.

I'd be interested too
I wish theyd also worked with desert lime, poor c. glauca is the underlook step-child

If only some citrus nerd had an infinite amount of help, time, and land, to all our benefit!
Yes indeed.
Our member Kumin is the closest we got to do doing atm, god bless 'em.

Do you all have named or particular cultivars?

Thanks for the post @gulfgardener one of the users actually has some cacti I want

Anyone else here grow trichocereus cacti? I do but I've never had any fruit, ive read some are tastier than others.

Ha, nice find
were they discarded in a dump or on the earth?

I'm a fan of hands off gardening when I have a ton of seeds. If I had a chance I'd let em rot and see if any volunteers pop up.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Opuntia humifusa
« on: June 05, 2023, 12:41:09 PM »
Huh thats interesting. Atlanta is zone 8b but I see a wide variety of opuntia around town that survived for years in the ground: we have extremely wet winters too.

Perhaps a grex of species - I have some seeds from spineless opuntia (assuming they have glochids) as well as some hardy seeds from NJ (from experimental farm network which has at least 3 hardy opuntia seed selections). Honestly Id prefer regular degular spines over glochids lol.

My spineless, glochidless elisiana doesnt shrivel but it and its tiny cutting took -15 frost (frozen soliid 2 nights) and cold wet weather iinsde of a pot. I have heard they aren't as hardy but that should have killed iit riight?
Are yours planted in the ground?

Also this is a desire of mine: large, sweet and glochidless opuntia

Its been said on this thread or another that persea have compatibility issues but the only paper I've been able to find that hybridizes a hardy NA persea to p.americana is from the 50s! And iirc its only persea bubonia (red bay) and not persea palustris (swamp bay) and p.palustris might be slightly closer

(LAURACEAE) lang li

Even in that 50s article there were some hybrids between persea species even tho the borbonia crosses failed. Has there been other documented experiments on interspecies crosses in this genus? Especially with p.palustris

Edit: The 50s persea hybridization paper I'm referencing:

Graft to a big tree today.
Worry about rootstock tomorrow.

Idk if I have that lol
I have a small meyer lemon tree in a 3 gallon i think like something youd see from home depot

only a few varieties like lemon  are easy to roott, the rest are a lot of work for little gain. The roots on orange and grapefruit cuttings will never be better than growing out seeds and grafting to them.

yees this is another concern, even if rooting is successful some plants supposedly arent vigorous non their own :(

Citrus General Discussion / Can budwood from the CCPP be cloned?
« on: May 22, 2023, 10:06:12 AM »
I'm thinking of creating an aerocloner.

I do not have the rootstock to graft all the varieties I want and frankly I'm nervous of grafting as I've never done it.

What fungicide do you use to treat your seeds kumin?

Nice, I had a southern Home for years but it perished last year's winter.
If you're offering that ID take some too.

Whatts the order minimum?

I'm interested in the muscadines but cann you tell which is which if theyre unlabeled?

Does anyone know of any hardy cacti besides opuntia that survive outside out east z8 or lower?
I had a tiny hedgehog that perished last year and it made me curious if anything could take a cold, rainy winter. Most hardy cacti are only tested in arid parts out west not with both those conditions.

Doesn't have to be a species like any selections or peculiar specimens outdoors at a botanical park or such.

Oof,  thankfully they should have some now I could add that listing to my cart when I checked!

They had some sun-dragon in stock and I'm mad that I didn't snag some while it was around 😢 literally had it in my cart and poof it was gone lol

I think it means the seeds of the cultivar haven't been observed in-depth.
These seem to be intended to be propagated asexually.

Supersour 1 say the same thing and I would find it odd for ALL of these to be seedless given the parents.
