Nope, not seedless.

I reached out to UGA and they don't have any available to share unfortunately. It's only available through their two resellers. Reached out to them and their stock is unavailable until late fall. Alas...

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / WTB Ruby Crisp Muscadine
« on: June 05, 2023, 06:48:26 PM »
Looking to purchase a rooted plant or cuttings of Ruby Crisp Muscadine.

It's sold out everywhere until winter, but I'm hoping there might still be a window to get one here.

For those not aware, it's a new variety that's supposed to be a top tier muscadine with a much more edible skin than your average one.

WMB fruiting is done. 90% of them tasted like dirty water with no flavor to speak of. 5% had a decent mix of tart and sweet, and 5% were just all sweet, with two specific ones that were very sweet.

Ultimately, IMO, WMB should just be rootstock. What good is an obscene amount of berries if most of them taste like bland butt?

Some of the branch grafts of shathoot and white pakistan have taken on it, but long term I think I'm going to cut it to a trunk stump and graft onto that so the tree is nothing but other varieties that are actually worth eating.

A friend of mine is growing Siam Jumbo. Need to touch base with him on how it's doing and what the flavor is like.

Citrus plants, in my experience, go to sleep for a bit when planted in ground. It's a combination of root shock, and awareness that they're no longer constrained and will focus on root growth instead of top growth.

The severity of the shock will determine how long it's asleep. If it's bad enough that you get leaf drop, you'd pretty much waiting until next season for anything to happen other than mild leaf growth.

Just be careful not to overfeed during this period, as it can actually make the issue worse.

Too much water can also stunt growth, though I'm not sure how much of an issue that would be with how sandy your soil appears to be.

Nuggets vs Heat now. First time an 8th seed has made the finals since the Knicks in 1999. Wild.

Nugs in 5. I don't think Jimmy Butler has enough to overcome Jokic and Murray.

(P.S. Go Golden Knights!)

CeeJay has nailed it this whole thread.

Anyways, down here in Vegas, the only water accumulation we have is whatever runoff waste there is from sprinklers for people that still have lawns. Said runoff lasts on the ground for about 10 minutes.

Dealing with a historic drought here as Lake Mead continues to shrink (although we got a bit of a break with more rain than expected early this year). Lots of factors coming into play here, but more and more people are thinking about moving elsewhere before it gets to deadpool status and housing values absolutely tank.

Any insight on self-fertile fruit set? Does good on it's own or does it help to have another pitangatuba to pair with it?

May not be the most technical term, but I've called them cyclers, since they cycle out their leaves within a specific time period.

What's the fruit quality like? I've read some marketing hype descriptions, but I'm curious what the real world opinion is.

How vigorously do they grow? Are they also immune from spreading it, or can the psyllids still spread it to other trees despite the tree being tolerant to the infection?

Any places selling the tree that will ship to somewhere other than Florida?

Coincidentally seaberries are another experiment I'm also trying. I've totally fallen in love with the sweeter varieties.

I have four different ones in my front yard that will get some shade (Sirola, Orange Glow, Golden Sweet, and a male), and am manually watering them until they get established. From my understanding, full shade is bad for them and they need "full sun" with at least eight hours a day of direct sunlight regardless of how hot or cold it is.

I had one a few years back in a pot in my backyard that handled our summer fine with enough watering (that sadly died when I over-watered it in the winter), so I'm hopeful these will do the same in ground. Time will tell.

I've taking a few of the small suckers from the bottom of them and am keeping them in a different place as insurance. Those plants were not easy to get.

Keen to know how yours do!

I'll have cuttings available once the fruit ripen and I can collect seeds for the maqui to offer both. Should be pretty soon.

I eagerly await sales of boxes of these beauties.

In Vegas, we get nothing but stores selling boxes of fibrous, flavorless Kent monstrosities.
Really?  Are you sure they're Kent?  Kent is the original fiberless mango.

Brain fart. Keitt, not Kent.

Neat. Thanks for reaching out to them drymifolia!

For sure. The seeds may still be gendered, but only one way to find out, right? ;)

Color on the berries is starting to change.

Lakers still!

Hope springs eternal. Lol.

Should these come up for sale after those on the list get theirs, I would love to purchase a grafted tree.

This would go straight to a community garden here to get established and then for propagation later on.

I been selling multi graft loquats and loquat scion since long before this preacher man came on the scene with his made up variety's and extremely high prices, and now endless excuses followed by crickets.
I just never sold anything I didn't actually have to sell, or promised a tree I hadn't grafted yet.
People seem happier to bet on the come of a promise and snazzy write ups of seedlings of unknown quality , and maybe some prefer to order through a website storefront.
The whole scene is made up of people wishing on a star.
Thanks out to those among us effectively figuring out new fruit frontiers and pushing limits by experimenting , learning and sharing .Your works are important.

In that case, I have some people in Vegas that are very thirsty for them next time you have them up for sale.
On that note, are there any trusted sellers of multi-grafted loquats that ship?

A ended up buying a semi-mature grafted Christmas loquat from ANaturalFarm on Etsy. They've been a great seller.

That said, open to graft cuttings of rock star varieties in the future for those who have them on offer.

On that note, are there any trusted sellers of multi-grafted loquats that ship?

*********************UPDATE ON ADAM AKA AKME GARDENS ***********************************

He just texted me saying he was in the hospital the entire time!

I had a feeling that is where he was!

He recovering and trying to catch up with orders now with help with a family member!

He said he will start shipping soon!

I call shenanigans.

Are there any public records available that can prove that?

That is also an incredibly long hospital stay. The sort of thing reserved for people in comas.

Even beyond that, surely he could have someone else he knows or employs to handle business communications during that time.

The whole thing stinks. The Subject of this thread should include a warning in case anyone just reads the first post and goes to purchase.

I've been curious about this. No one that I'm in contact with is growing it out here, and getting intel on the fruit has been difficult.
