Tropical Fruit Discussion / Propagating banana from an unripe fruit

I almost thought this was for sure fake. But it seems genuine. Who knows what else could be propagated this way... possibly an unripe fig too.

Hicksbeachia pinnatifolia = Red Bopple Nut

Two species originally from Australia, possibly still confined to the continent.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Let's Go Bondon!
« on: November 16, 2021, 06:53:03 AM »
Trying to get this slow-growing Artocarpus going. Commonly known as Bondon, it is an exception in the genus since it forms a small and low tree. Some say the fruit has a flavor better than jakfruit. Time will tell, but if you are outside of the tropics forget about fruiting this Bornean nugget.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Helper wanted in Russian Federation
« on: March 23, 2021, 11:55:10 AM »
Hello folks,
I am seeking help from someone in Russia to buy some plants for me and hold them until I am able to come and pick them up or organize other transport. This has to be done now because the vendor only sends out plants in early Spring. The helper will be paid for their service.

You will also have to write in Russian to the shop, as it is email order. The order will be for 4 small plants, and possibly some seeds.

If you are serious about this, please message (PM) me now.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Feijoa - Back with a vengeance
« on: December 15, 2020, 07:25:05 AM »

Probably one of the more popular restorations in recent taxonomy...

As for Acca (Dacca) it's TNT - Dynamite for its most famous member, but not quite Highway to Hell just yet since there is still Acca macrostema & lanuginosa.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted: Dwarf #8 Loquat seeds
« on: September 29, 2020, 10:32:43 AM »
As some of you may know, the mother tree of Dwarf #8 loquat unfortunately perished in the recent hurricane. So I am reaching out to loquat collectors who purchased budwood of this and could supply me with 10-20 seeds in the future. Or if someone still has seeds from this year, they might be viable as loquat seeds are said to be good for at least six months.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Early Red Loquat
« on: September 29, 2020, 05:16:26 AM »
Early Red Loquat is a cultivar of loquat that was bred over a century ago by Taft in Orange California. It apparently had fruit ripening in late January or early February. However that is not the full season I donít think, because I found a nursery in Orange, CA that says the fruiting window is Feb to April. I'd like to know if anyone is still growing this heirloom and what the fruiting season is for you.

Edit: Sorry guys, I can't find the nursery anymore. I was browsing this a few days ago, perhaps I falsely remembered GA as CA... Willis Orchards has it.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Grapevine in shade
« on: August 02, 2020, 12:35:17 AM »
Is it possible to ripen grapes if the bunches are in the shade and just the leaves are getting sun from above? I have a narrow area blocked off from morning and afternoon sun. So just sunlight from above would hit the overhead trellis. But it would still be a good number of hours.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Black Limes Platter
« on: July 20, 2020, 08:03:16 AM »
Been experimenting with black limes and would highly recommend this method of storage, especially for those in cold climates where the season is short. They have an amazing ability to rehydrate and pass on a complex lime flavor to any soup or stew. I am yet to try the famous black lime tea or sour drink, but will give it a go.

Viable seeds wanted.
Katy, Goldkist and hybrid of two if this should be available.
PM me please.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / French translator required
« on: June 01, 2020, 12:01:47 AM »
If there is anyone fluent in French who would like to volunteer a little translation, I am interested to know the characteristics of Eugenia michelii as described here: It is number 27. Pretty much just interested to know what the fruit are like, and how to differentiate from E. uniflora.

Update: Thanks to the person who PM'd me a transcription, which I was able to use in Google Translate. It reads "The fruit is a globose berry, slightly torose or with rounded sides, red in its maturity, crowned by the calyx, and which contains, under a soft flesh, slightly acerbic and refreshing. a globular and monosperm nucleus."

It seems to be the same as E. uniflora. The name is invalid, even though it may show as valid in some databases.
