Tropical Fruit Discussion / Eugenia neonitida / selloi growing tips
« on: October 08, 2023, 12:26:37 PM »
What conditions have you found to be ideal for growing pitangatubas? I'm in CA zone 9b, with a climate that is more arid than some of our Floridian counterparts. I've noticed we get a lot of sunburned leaves if planted in full sun out here, and growth can be quite slow.

Hi folks, I'm hoping to track down some Diospyros texana seeds. Let me know if you have some, and how many. I'm sure I can find other folks in CRFG to go in on a bigger lot if you have an abundance. If you're harvesting them wild, choice selections would be nice if possible. Thanks!

Hi folks, has anyone found a good use for Dovyalis hebecarpa x D. abyssinica? From the fruit I tasted, it was pretty sour, and the texture was a little too mealy for my tastes. Has anyone made preserves with it? Dehydrated? Something else?

I had hundreds of flowers on my Emerich #1 tree this year during good weather and had zero fruit set. Does anyone know if they are self fertile? My tree if about 5’ tall, so it should be mature enough to hold some fruit.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Big Jim loquat scions for trade
« on: May 16, 2023, 08:57:37 PM »
Hi folks, a friend just shared some Big Jim scions with me today, and I have a half a dozen extra. I've been looking for Angelino/Argelino scions, if anyone has them. Otherwise, I'm open to local favorites that fruit on the early side. My preferences lean towards strong acid and sugar balance, with complex flavors. I don't like the mild flavored loquats as much. Angelino, Early Red, Mogi, Fletcher White, Benlehr, España, etc.

Hi folks! I’d like to experiment with some jackfruit seedlings. I’m especially interested in small-fruited, early ripening selections. I’ve been told Gold Nugget fits the bill. Are there others I should be aware of? If anyone has seeds that is willing to sell, or trade for, let me know. Thanks!

« on: March 18, 2022, 12:27:32 PM »
Has anyone grown “Che Seedless”? I’m curious to hear if it truly is seedless and lives up to the taste claims in this video. I’d be interested in growing it, if so.
