Most welcome, hope that's the correct call. Could be projecting, as I've been hanging out with our rollinia tree a bit today and yesterday.

Here are some leaves for comparison. They do look a bit different, but mine seemed to have changed with maturity, with narrowing and lengthening of the leaves.

...and some ripening fruit

How old is your rollinia?

Plant 1 reminds of rollinia, or another annona.

Thanks roblack. I think you nailed it. I bought rollinia seeds from TFF member Brian
in 2018.

Wow Raul! They look delicious. Glad you're feeling better.

Maybe natural thinning. The tree probably canít support too many at once.


ebay link shows no items for sale.

What a tragedy !

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Which is easier - Cogshall or Carrie?
« on: June 10, 2021, 02:48:39 PM »
My Carrie is 11 years old and I have never experienced Anthracnose or any other
disease. The fruit's flavor is unique and some on this forum don't care for them.

The only downside I have experienced is that it produces very few fruit some years.

My prime mango tree right in me front yard is Carrie bought at Lowes in North Coral Springs 2008.  Many fruits this year so spill out you negatives. I can get $35 per fruit here from Subcontinent Asians who are MDs. Carrie has this rep with them, while the small minded cry out like babies about medicinal tasting this or that.

Carrie definitely suffers from anthracnose so micro climate, pruning and copper plays a big role in production

My Carrie is 10 years old and has never had an anthracnose issue. Lat year there were only 6 mangoes on the
tree but this year it's holding around 60.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Topping Soursop
« on: January 25, 2021, 02:55:19 PM »
My soursop is getting too tall and I want to cut it back some. Should I do it now
during the winter or wait for warmer weather?

Firefox works.

Photos would help.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Marula Germination
« on: November 17, 2020, 10:19:22 AM »
I bought seeds from forum member Stuartdaly88 and had pretty good success following his instructions:

"Soak with water for 24hours before planting. I haven't germinated the other two yet the seeds have long dormancy. I have some M.discolor at the moment in bag with cotton wool that have swollen a lot I think it's been a little over a month but I expect root tip any day now!
The marula I have germinated many times. It is the most erratic germinated ever. The thick shell means they take a few months to pop out the soil but I have had some take up to two years and germinated randomly after I had long ago reused the soil
 They have very distinctive fleshy leaves so I could recognized them easily. I have heard of some techniques for faster germination but I can't speak from experience as I just planted them in nicely draining but moisture retentive soil. I have heard a couple minutes in just boiled hot water can speed it up also scarification may help. I can't find the page but I read a post on garden Web the lady said there is a plug you can find in the seed and remove it with a knife my seed anatomy is not too good I couldn't really see a plug though.
They will germinate without any of this just at very random times obviously an adaptation so not all seeds sprouted in the same season in case of drought killing them.
GA3 500ppm 24hours soak on these three species has not had any difference from normal soak but higher Ga3 may help I'm experimenting so will tell you if I find a trick:)"

Congratulations Kevin. Your place down south is looking good.
