I would say frustrating
I would say, to be expected! Ain't nobody out here a botanist and keying these fruits to really get into the details of identification.

Selling my first round of Yangmei seedlings for the year. Think I've gotten the transplanting down as I have not had any seedling mortality.  Woo, super stoked. Should have more in about a month.

I had a dream last night that my Yangmei plants were loaded with fruit this year. I must have been thinking about Simon's plants!

Is that Hapa Joe's Colombian Creme?

Agree with Nate here that Jonah's tree is the best guabiju, but also of note, the leaves on his tree are wavy and that's unusual. I top worked my seedling guabiju with his scions and they took great with cleft grafts, 100% take rate.

Rad, I'm gonna graft and plant a bunch of trees this year!

Jonahs guabiju is the best I've had

Just confirmed with them that their Babaco is indeed Vasconcellea pubescens, Mountain Papaya.  Asked them to change their listing, we'll see if that happens.

I sold out of mine about a couple of weeks ago. I believe Shawn Mattison on facebook is selling some right now

Syzygium sandwicense (tried it)
Eugenia koolauensis

Some other minor fruits that aren't particularly notable

Awesome, sounds interesting! Would you be interested in trading any scion?

They also list Babaco Papaya but have Vasconcellea pubescens as the photo.  I've asked them about this and that their plants look like seedling V. pubescens. They said they are tissue cultured Babaco. Has anyone heard of Babaco being TC'd and distributed by anyone? Always wondered.

Just dug up some seedlings to transplant them to a wider spacing. I had about 10 seedlings i planted at 6' apart, lost 3 but the 7 have been growing incredibly fast.  After seeing people talk about them being huge i wanted to make my spacing more in line with the rest of my yangmei block, about 10' spacing. Not very many roots in the top 6-8" of soil and lots of large roots with fibrous roots coming straight down off the bottom of the plant. We'll see how they recover. Plants are about 2.5-3' tall. Was fun to do in terms of learning what their roots are like. Very little gopher activity around these lower roots.

Hey Kevin, have you tried various different seedlings? I have about 10 and have found one to be somewhat sweeter and less tart, but not sure how sweet, sweet really is. Is yours tart at all? Thank you!

I have what was often referred to as lutescens x pyriformis but I believe they are just pyriformis.

I've been wanting to grow more from this genus. A super interesting member of the Melastomataceae family! They look beautiful and super delicious. I've grown seedlings but always seem to get them germinated and can never keep them alive. I bought some seedlings from bellamy and they have been doing great. Probably a bout 8-10" tall. Just moved em out of my grow room and into a hoop house from 4" to 1gallon. Hopefully these do well for me!

I bought a box of those ones I posted and got em in an Aglis Box. I prefer non-perforated honestly, especially when its almost 50% more for perforated. Dang!

Haha glad they eventually made it to you! They definitely seem to last longer bagged up when they are wrapped, seems they are quite prone to desiccation.

Hope they take and hopefully I'll have some scions of the Chinese varieties sometime in the next couple years. Hoping this is the year my plants really take off after getting established.

Could be issues with being over or under watered. I have that happen sometimes but they always resprout and take off

damg those do look awesome kevin

Dang!! Those look like honkin' lucumas to me

Is to possible for the scions to be rooted instead of grafted?

I can't speak to that, I think the take rates would be very low. Maybe Matthias Thomas has rooted them? I know its not commonly done

These are scions from plants I got from Far Reaches Farm, they are about 4 or 5 years old! Glad to hear the plants are growing well! Mine from that batch are about 2.5' and super bushy. They've definitely been outperforming all my other Yangmei plants
