Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: White Sapote Fruit Shapes
« on: Today at 03:01:24 PM »
Wow, that is cool. I just grafted a few Santa Cruz on my tree. Looking forward to seeing the fruits next year.

I should have my very first McDill seedling fruits soon, they are green but halfway there in size so maybe another 2-3months? I have some Cuccio green fruits now that's about tennis ball size. Also, a lot of the wooly leaf sapote fruits about the size of golf ball.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Anyone in SoCal growing Mamey??
« on: Today at 12:07:50 PM »
I'm curious to know if anyone here in SoCal has successfully grown Pace Mamey or any other Mamey and got fruits on their tree.

If you do get fruits that actually goes until ripe, then please respond below of what variety you are growing, and maybe post a photo of your trees.

I just bought more fruits of the Pace Mamey and wondering if it is worth my time to grow out the seeds again, then graft them with a named variety in hopes of getting fruits on the tree. I already have a larger seedling greeen sapote tree (10 ft tall) that has never fruited.

I'll take a few photos of my green sapote tree again, maybe it isn't fruiting because it is shaded by my large Brewster lychee tree?

Ok, that makes sense Simon. I did see that both of my boxes from Calmei had the Sweet Violet checked off. But I was wondering why so many of the fruits were much larger than the previous weeks order of the Sweet Violet.

Oh well, interesting to see what they do about my complaint, maybe they will send me another box or give me a refund. I also found like Nate some fruits in the box that were much smaller in size so they must have just mixed them both to fulfill the orders, but that is not right.

I have the same problem. I already bought 2 boxes of Sweet Violet earlier, last week so I didn't need more boxes of the same thing. I wanted to taste the Eastern Giant variety.

I filled a complaint, looks like Weee automatically shows my complaint as a refund request. Will see what they say about my last order, got the 2 boxes today but not what I ordered.

We (SoCal) have not seen the Crystal for sale yet. Right now, the Purple Pearl and Eastern Giant. I just bought the last 2 boxes of Easter Giant so there is only 10 boxes of the Purple Pearl. I hope they sale us the Crystal.

Ok, I see that Camei (source of the yangmei) to Weee and other outlets has updated their website with more info on these new varieties that are being sold on Weee.

So here's the description of the new Sweet Violet, and there link to the website.

Brad, your fruits look very nice as usual. If you have an extra fruit of the Murashige, please save one for me to buy. I have been wanting to try that fruit for some time but no one else I know has it.

Wow, very nice, I will be ordering a few. I like the color of your flowers, congrats on a new seedling, Purple Boots.

How is the taste of the fruits, is it similar to Fredericks and the other purple-colored fruits (posum purple, Nancy Garrison)?

Brad, just checked, I grafted them on 2/7/24.

I have some Dream atemoya scions, Lisa, and AU so I will graft those for now. When you get chance to cut the Dr. White, send me a message. Thanks.

Ok, thanks for that feedback, I was just planning to cut some branches of LM3 and graft it now. I will only graft 2 small cuttings on my large tree.

But, when you have chance, I would like to buy more of your Dr White cuttings (fruits were big and good). My earlier grafts I did on this tree didn't make it, none.

Ok, thanks for all the feedback on the type of fruit it may be. I need to try and hand pollinate again so I can get some fruits and I will post some updated pictures.

Right now, I top worked this tree with the Yellow Birula so those branches are growing crazy, at leat 8-10 ft tall, I had to had support wood to keep the new Yellow Birula branches from breaking of at the graft points.

I hope one of these varieties have flowers so I can try my hand at pollinating them. My Selma seedling tree seems to have many flowers and I haven't hand pollinated any flowers but it seems to be setting fruits byitself. That is what I need, so I bought the LM3 tree since Simon mentioned a while back that it doesn't require much hand pollination. I will also graft the new LM3 on this giant tree I have so it can grow fast and have fruits next year.

Thank you, Kevin, now I'm buying a rootstock for my first one to graft your Sabara.

Is it An Hai?

There is large fruit size white sapote that tests very good, as good as any I have tasted. You should get the Selk or CT#7, see my photos. These fruits are very good tasting. How you tried either of these fruits. Also, Cuccio gets very large, but I like these two over Cuccio.

I'll be able to taste my seedling McDill fruits this year and people say it is on the large size but it doesn't look as large as the two I mentioned above.

To me most of these white sapote (not wooley leaf) fruits tastes very similar, but some are just sweeter (higher brix).

I really don't taste some of these flavors people say about lemony or butterscotch flavor/taste. Maybe when you eat enough different varieties your taste buds will be able to detect the subtle differences. Kinda like cheap figs and the rare expensive ones, I really don't taste a significant difference to pay $1000 for a small, rooted fig that is has excellent flavor. My seedling find is just as good tasting to me and it was free. I even spread it around to 20 states for free.

Jason, glad your mystery sapote has been identified. I see a few small fruits on my grafts so I will protect it from the critters so that I can taste my first Redlands. I think I have the Redlands from one person in Florida and one person here in NorCal. I will ask Joel to monitor the fruits of the Redlands and take a few photos of the ripe fruits so I can compare it to the fruits I should have this year or next.

I got my 4 boxes ordered yesterday tonight at 9pm, Weee sure is quick in the one day delivery service.

These fruits are much better tasting than last years fruits I purchased mainly for the seeds which I didn't plant. Seeds still in the refrig, hope it will germinate.

I took a brix reading tonight and it was only brix=8. But surprising these fruits have no sour taste so it was much better tasting this year for me. Now I like the fruits much better. I compared the taste of CORG, Surinam Cherry, Babados Cherry, and Yangmei and the winner was the Yangmei. Just bought the Barbados cherry tree and CORG cherry tree and they had ripe fruits on them.

Yes, I noticed the same thing. The DMOR9 plant I purchased from Hicks ($150) is still a little stick of a tree, didn't seem to grow more that 12 inches in 9 months. But the ones I got from Marta and grafted to my large trees are over 6 ft long since grafting it. I grafted a cutting of my grafted branch this January on the tree I'm trading with a forum member locally and that grafted branch grew over 4 feet in 5 months, I had to cut it back again.

Redlands fruit sounds like a match, softball size fruits huh, nice. I think the McDill here is similar in size, I will weigh one when I see a ripe one.

You should be able to graft white sapote most months of the year, I do. They are easier to graft than loquats, about the same level of difficulty as the avocado which is not much.

Joel, nice fruit photos, is that a wooly leaf white sapote fruit?

How's the Smathers fruits, are they ripe yet? Please post a photo if the fruit is full size now. My fruits are not quite full size, still green, maybe another month.

SHV, you might want to read the last page on this post below:

https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=51544.75

Joel lives in Florida and has some really good details of the fruits at the FSP white sapote. Maybe it is the big seedling tree he just posted about with nice size fruits. Ask him your question on that post.

RS, since you are in Florida, you should grow the Younghan's Gold and Bonita Springs/Super Sweet. Both of these varieties on my trees are very productive and the Younghan's Gold is one of my favorite tasting variety. But the Clytia wooley leaf fruit has the highest brix =26 for me on my trees.

I have 2 new seedling fruits on my rootstock trees from CSUF aroboretum, one is the seedling of McDill and the other tree is the seedling of the wooley leaf tree. Hopefully the fruits tastes good. My fruits should be ready to eat in a few months.

For these two Florida varieties (Younghan's Gold and Bonita Springs), the ripe fruit taste is consistent, the Younghan's Gold is a winner to me.
