Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Starfruit- Anyone Growing It ?
« on: October 27, 2021, 08:51:07 AM »
Here, people say: a one starfruit tree will feed you, your family, your neighbors and co-workers.
I have Kari variety. It gets deep orange color, large fruit, very sweet, fruits twice a year from size of 3ft, loaded with fruits and flowers now. I never liked them from stores until i tried from someone's garden. Huge difference.

I would love to grow them but they need more chill hours than we have. Its hard to find a good quince in florida, they are mostly too hard and not good. Ideally they are chewy and juicy. They are deep yellow color when ripe. I was able to buy a few good ones recently at fancy fruit and produce

I am not sure what wooden apple is but there is nothing better than ripe quince. It has unique taste and smell.

If i walked into a store with all fruits available and had to buy only 5, i would get:
Sugar apple

I have the same issue with a few potted trees, not citrus. I tried sprays, replanting in different soil, fertilizers, macros, part shade, full sun... Nothing works. 

This plant deserves a chance!
It could give you great quality fruit without grafting.

I have never tried rollinia before, they are not sold on Orlando.
Its delicious! I thought rollinia has spikes. This one was smooth.
I will plant seeds. Thank you!!

Please help identifying the fruit.
I bought it in the local store as sugar apple.
Texture is creamy and nothing chewy. Very fragrant. A little grainy right near skin Seeds look just like cherimoya seeds.
I thought it was taiwan gold sugar apple, and wanted to plant, but now not sure.

You can keep it inside the entire winter if it's too small.
I don't think they require chill hours

Some on older some on last year wood. Multi graft was not a plan. It just happened because rootstocks arrived very skinny and scions were much thicker. So i grafted on my trees. Some wood was so hard to keep cleft tight. I didn't think it would work.

I grafted on fuyu: saijo, coffee cake, izu, chocolate
I grafted on hachiya: saijo and coffee cake.
I did it when rootstocks were waking up and when they had leaves. I tried bud grafting and cleft. I tried with fresh scions and the refrigerated for a few weeks.  all took. I have all kind of troubles with annonas grafting but persimmons and asian pears had no issues.

I have seen pics of sugar apples that are very yellow and bigger than regular sugar apple. People call them thai gold sa. There is nothing on the internet about them. I can't find seeds either. I have na dai and thai lessard but they never get that gold color. Is any one familiar with them?

I was thinking that nurseries that are allowed to sell citrus trees here can also sell cuttings.
