I had one in the ground and it fizzled out.  Going to try growing it in a pot.  Just got scammed on etsy by someone sticking a rose cutting in a ball of mud and saying it was a jocote, spondias purpurea.   >:(

Yeah.  And darn, it's doing so well, too.

The next your palm seeds, I'd live to purchase some from you.  I have been looking for this palm for a long time and have not had good luck.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is this a maprang or mango?

I saw a couple of weeks ago that someone bought what was sold as a maprang on ebay from Puerto Rico was actually a mango.
Of course, I had purchased a supposed mango from a Puerto Rico nursery, but on etsy.  So I am crossing my fingers this is a maprang.

I have peach trees growing exceptionally well in the Arizona desert.  I have plums, they grow well, but not quite as good as peach trees.
An absolute winner is spicezee nectaplum.  Grows like a weed.

I left it in a pot for 2 years before planting.  Didn't know where I wanted it, then I had a tree that was in afternoon AZ sun, and I knew guava could take the heat.  So I planted it last September.  Also, I think I was underwater ing and underfertilizing the tree.  So, he is stillsection in the benefit of the doubt section.  He'll fall out next summer if no fruit, lol.

I tried growing it out here in AZ.  It was watered well, but my summer heat fried it and maqui berry.
Not sure how much heat they can take, but, I think central FL might be too hot.

Well, I was reading on this site that you needed to buy Mexican cream guava from a reputable seller and the varieties they have at the big box stores sell trees that create poor quality fruit. 
So, I went onto guavaking on ebay and purchased an air layered mexican cream guava 3 years ago. 
Then, about a week after purchase, I read on here not to buy from guavaking.  🤦‍♂️
All I can say is that the tree is in the ground and growing quite well.  I'll give an update if it ever fruits.

Is shipping to AZ available?

Not saying this is it, but, water deprivation will cause citrus to rebloom.

« on: May 18, 2022, 01:13:39 AM »
Well, I was buying small, 15 $ bag of guava fertilizer online.  It perked mine up.  But, I think I can do cheaper. 
I have alkaline, clay soil and I was not fertilizing them at all.  They were all light green and puny.  Started fertilizing and they turned dark green and look a million times better.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fertilizer question
« on: May 17, 2022, 01:18:44 AM »
What name brand fertilizer do you use for best results on your guava trees?
Also, I had been lightly fertilizing mine monthly during the growing season and that seemed to work pretty well.  How often us everyone else fertilizing?

Hey ahosey01, I live in Scottsdale AZ and I am a citrus/fruit tree enthusiast.  If you are ever looking to graft I have a few unique varieties and over next couple of years, should be getting fruit, seeds if you want any.
Very jealous to hear about your evenings, lol.

Following.  Annie's annuals and perennials used to have them, but, not anymore.  Have been looking for a plant and can't find one anywhere.

If you could a more flavorful, not bland fruit of Icaco,  I would definitely have interest in those seeds, as well as your eugenias.

I'm in 9b.  Beauty, Scarlett, Scarlett beauty, green gage, Shiro, methely.   Also, from website mail order natives, I ordered 2 prunus augustifolium, Odom and Guthrie.  They are tasty and do fantastic at my house.

Citrus General Discussion / Wanting another mandarin
« on: February 19, 2022, 04:54:35 PM »
Considering the slightly new varieties.  I am trying to read up on them, but, I find some inconsistencies in what I read.  Looking between gold nugget, Shasta gold, Yosemite gold and Tahoe. 
1st consideration is that I don't want alternate bearing.
Second is, I don't want too much tart.
And 3 would be if anyone knows which would grow best in desert.  Thanks!

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Pears in southern CA
« on: February 03, 2022, 11:22:43 PM »
I am growing 3 varieties in Scottsdale,  AZ.
Seckel, Waddell Giant, and Ayers.
Seckel has fruited regularly.  Waddell Giant has not fruited yet and I just planted Ayers.  From everything I read, these have the best potential to produce good fruit with low chill.
Ayers is hard to find.  Bought mine on ebay.  As far as I know, Waddell giant is only sold at RSI nursery in glendale, AZ.  I have heard the fruit is really good.  Got flowers last spring, hoping for fruit this year.
Also, although I don't know the exact method, you are supposed to pick pears ubripe, and then store them in a cool, dry, dark area for uniform and best flavor.
