Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: WTB Wampee (Clausena Lansium)
« on: September 19, 2023, 12:34:12 AM »
I just bought 2 airlayer wampees for an unbelievable price. One has 1 fruit and the other has none. Both are in 5 gallon pots. Both trees desperately need to be repot or put into the ground. I am confident they both will fruit next year.

I have 4 growing in pots that are 2 years old. How long before they fruit. Hopefully I have at least one male ND one female.

I didnít realize Wampee is part of citrusís family and itís also under quarantine. My friend gave me some fruits and I do have the seeds. I guess thatís option. Itíll take 5 to 7 Years to fruit.  Can Wampee be airlayer?

Your flower looks nice, congrats. Make sure to hand pollinate the next flower at 9am-10am or you may not get fruit set. I did learn the hard way that if you wait until after noon, it will not be good since I have so many bees, they take all the pollen from the flower before I can hand pollinate. I was wondering why some days I get hardly any pollen on the flower to use. Also, another good trick is to cover the flower immediately after you hand pollinate it so the bees don't try to remove the pollen you just put on the stigma. I use the organza bags (8"x12") since the flower is so large, works great.

Thanks Janet for the reply, then maybe I don't need to worry to much about the weight. My vine is growing over and through my blood orange tree and fence so I can use that as support for the new vines. This vine grows so fast, its hard to keep up with the number of flowers I need to hand pollinate every morning. Going outside again to do my routine to hand pollinate the flowers now.

Just hand pollinated one. Thanks Kaz for tip about using organza bag. The cutting is from you.

Perhaps youíre correct that the taller one is the crossed pollinated since the leaves are different from the 2 smaller ones.

I planted a lemon zest seed and 3 shoots sprouted. I searched but still confused which of the 3 shoots is true to type. I want to separate them and discard the not true to type one. Thanks.

7 years to fruit. Is the tree air layer or seed. I have a 1 year old air layer and hoping it wonít take 7 years to fruit.

PMed. Are all the scions compatible with the sabra? Especially the yellow and blue.

If you want a fruit to mature on the tree, and still let the trees highest chance for good growth, you can leave one fruit on the tree until it matures.  This is because all citrus draws its energy to grow and ripen from only the three closes leaves to the fruit.

Iíll adhere to your advice and just keep one fruit for tasting. Thx Millet.

Z4 is a hybrid correct?
Improved selection of the red hybrid.

Improved in which way? Does the fruit faster or better tasting. How long does it takes to fruit from seeds. I heard the red takes about 2 to 3 years to fruit. I have a 2 1/2 year old red that hasnít fruit.

15
I read good things about AxP Jaboticaba. Looking for either seeds or seedling to add to my collection. Thx.

16
Katz, do you know which one can be propagate by cutting and which 0ne needs to be grafted. Put me on the lust please.

17
I have heard Gem is a heavy bearer and bears annually.

I experienced similar situation with PPC grafts. They would sprout fast then died back. I recently grafted PPC again to 4 different trees and only 1 graft has taken. Keep in mind I have successfully grafted Dream, Dr White, AP2, LM3, Red Geffner, etc.

Very few of the Lane Late flowers will produce fruit.  Therefore, if you wait until the bloom is over to remove the new (if any) fruit, you will have a much easier time doing so.

Noted. Thanks.

I purchased some Lane Late navel orange scions from CCPP last summer and grafted to my small lemon tree. This tree is now loaded with over 100 flowers and fruitlets in just one 14 inch branch. Unfortunately, all the fruits will be removed and let the tree grow.








25
 I just noticed some flowers. When is the optimal time to remove the flowers?  Right now or wait til they became pea size fruitlets.
