Tropical Fruit Discussion / Dwarf longan
« on: September 03, 2022, 06:51:19 PM »
Does anyone know anything about a dwarf longan. There are some old fruiting trees in Sarasota area that are no more than 10-15 ft tall with low bushing growth habit. Although, donít know for sure if it is the same species as Dimocarpus longan. Pics attached.

Who else is growing Genipa americana in Florida? My tree is small but with the rain itís growing fast. I planted it under the high canopy of live oaks.

Please, share your observations. What is the lowest temperature that your Genipa americana went through?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Garcinia intermedia ID question
« on: September 21, 2019, 03:54:43 PM »
I have two plants of "lemon drop mangosteen" from two different sources and both look different. Is it due to variation among G. intermedia or they are two different species under one common name? I almost think that lemon drop #1 is in fact G. humilis (achachairu)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sudden lychee death
« on: September 11, 2019, 07:20:12 AM »
It was Sweetheart, a nicely grown five-years-old tree, that bloomed for the first time. It set only one fruit and suddenly the emerging growth got stunted and wilted, the old leaves got brown, but didnít fall off. It is dead!

Iíve read in one post here it might have been a root pathogen that caused it. Does anyone know what it actually is and how to prevent it?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / illicium verum vs. illicium anisatum
« on: July 25, 2019, 06:49:52 PM »
One is pretty toxic (illicium anisatum) one is little toxic (illicium verum). Both look VERY similar. The latter is true star anise.
Can these two "star anise" plants be distinguished visually based on morphological features?

For Florida citrus - what brand/type citrus foliar fertilizer spray gives you the best results?
