Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Squash identification
« on: May 20, 2023, 03:04:59 PM »
I got a squash that i didn't plant. Please help to identify. It's doing really well in central Florida and i plan to keep seeds.

I have a few 3 gal butterscotch sapodilla trees for $100 each. Healthy, one was blooming, but might drop the fruit due to young age. Were purchased from zills nursery.
Local pick up only in north Orlando area.
Pm for questions and pics.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Loquat fruit fly
« on: March 04, 2023, 08:27:49 AM »
I enjoyed my loquat golden nugget for a few years and suddenly i have fruit flies so bad that there is nothing left to eat last a few years. I am thinking about cutting the tree down. Maybe it will reduce their population since i feel like its a breeding ground and it will effect other trees. Is there another loquat variety that ripening earlier when fruit flies are not active?
Please share your thoughts!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sugar apple or not
« on: October 05, 2021, 03:21:46 PM »
Please help identifying the fruit.
I bought it in the local store as sugar apple.
Texture is creamy and nothing chewy. Very fragrant. A little grainy right near skin Seeds look just like cherimoya seeds.
I thought it was taiwan gold sugar apple, and wanted to plant, but now not sure.

I have seen pics of sugar apples that are very yellow and bigger than regular sugar apple. People call them thai gold sa. There is nothing on the internet about them. I can't find seeds either. I have na dai and thai lessard but they never get that gold color. Is any one familiar with them?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Soursop and cold
« on: December 26, 2020, 03:54:16 PM »
Hi all! I wonder if there are different types of a. Muricata, soursop that have different cold tolerance...
My soursop drops leave when temp about 45f. Last night was 32f . Today i went to a local nursery and noticed that one of their soursops still have greenesh leaves and the rest of them dropped them long time ago.
I wonder if it's a. Montana got mixed up or there are more cold hardy muricatas. I was so tempted to buy it just for survival ability because its hard to keep my soursop happy
