WTB: large Luc's Garcinia
« on: June 21, 2022, 12:49:45 PM »
I have several young trees. May buy more seeds, but wondering if anyone has older trees available. Also has anyone actually fruited Luc's in Florida yet? I'm not getting any younger lol! Thanks, Ed

Yes, Lucís is being fruited in FL. How large are you looking for? I have one just under 2í. Message me if interested.

Yes, I have fruited it here in South Florida.  These trees are dioicous and need male pollen to produce large fruit. A solitary tree can sometimes produce fruit, but they are often small and very few reach maturity.  My 5 flowering trees are almost 10 years old. My 5 flowering trees are female (3% probability). My trees don't produce anything, maybe 5 runts in total, without hand pollination from pollen sourced from a male tree grown by another forum member.  I now have a grafted male planted but that will take years to flower.

I have 3 large 4ft and 5 ft trees in 7gal pots, $150 to $200. These are around 5 years old, maybe they will flower in the year or two.


I have a multiple 3ft and 4 ft trees in 3 gal pots. Some of these were fruited by me. $50 to $75


These are some seedlings that were fruited by me last year.

Are you saying only 3% of seedlings are female?

Not at all.  The probability of 1 seedling being female is probably around 50%. Each added seedling reduces the probability of all seedlings being all male or all female by half.  The probability of 2 seedlings being female is 25%, 3 is 12%, 4 females 6%, 5 plants all female is around 3%.

So I need to buy multiple trees to ensure I have both a male and female?

I would be shocked if he ran out. There was a ton when I went.

"South Florida" variety? Not sure what you mean by that. Some people are popping names on their Luc's, and I'm sure there's some variation, but unless trees are grafted, it is not likely the same tree in all respects.

Original poster has another post on wanting to buy a "South Florida" persimmon.  Maybe some wires got crossed.

Raul did sell scions of specific Luc's he found a while back, which he named "Jumbo", "Sweetie", "Sharpie". I have these grafted but not for sale.

I feel the need to personally and publicly thank Brandon for an info packed 45 minutes at his orchard. The info I gleaned is invaluable.
