Tropical Fruit Discussion / Soursop question
« on: November 20, 2020, 11:59:28 AM »
I live in zone 6a, So I am unable to permanently plant a Soursop outside without it dying in the winter. However, I was wondering if it is possible to have a Soursop grow indoors in a container and be able to fruit somewhat well. Is this the case, or should I try something else?

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Apple rust clarifications
« on: August 24, 2020, 09:07:47 PM »
I have some questions regarding apple ceder rust.

1.Assuming that chopping down the ceders is impossible, non optimal,or dangerous and excluding getting rust resistant varieties, what are good counter measures against rust?

2.Assuming the rusted apple tree survives winter, will the rust carry over next spring or does it need to be reinfected?     

Citrus General Discussion / Any cold hardy citrus?
« on: August 22, 2020, 04:45:03 PM »
Out of curiosity, is there any kind of (edible) citrus that can withstand the temperatures of 6a?(US)

Out of curiosity, are there any other fruit bearing temperate plants. Other tropical families like ebony, custard apples, and passion flowers have members like american persimmons, pawpaws, and maypops, which grow in colder climates and bear edible fruit. Any others like this,like a cold hardy sapote?

Temperate Fruit Discussion / (American) Persimmon pest(?)
« on: July 15, 2020, 11:48:07 PM »
I had recently got a Meader persimmon. Later that day I went outside at night and I saw this red beetle-like insect(not a ladybug) eating the tree(there were a few more but I shooed them off). (see image)
does anyone recognize this insect? Is it a pest? if yes, what countermeasures can I take?


I wake up today and see my BBJF having parts of 2 leaves being eating(those parts were dying anyway) and the third stem being completely eaten, leaving a stump-like appearance. My BBJF is rather young, I got him a week ago, will it grow back? I live in zone 6A, meaning I have to him keep in pots and he is constantly indoors. The only explanation I can think of is my cat got to it, are cats known for this? No other plants were harmed.   

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Maypops (in zone 6a/5)?
« on: July 01, 2020, 11:11:07 PM »
I have heard about Maypops(Passiflora incarnata) and am interested in growing it. Looking up information about it on Wikipedia, it says the Maypop main zones are 7-11. However, some users on various forums and other websites claim that Maypops have/can survive in zone 5. Is there any truth to this? Can anyone provide clarity?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / "Bell" Starfruit
« on: May 25, 2020, 08:48:56 PM »
I have heard half varieties of star fruit(Is it two words or one word?), are self-compatible and the other half needs two plants to produce fruit. Is the "bell" variety one of these? Is it good with pots? If this variety needs a second one, what are some alternatives?
