Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fruiting and flowering periods

The only harvest information I found on SD CRFG's website was basically about deciduous trees. The newsletters look worthwhile to peruse but it's a lot different than having seasonal information compiled together where it's easy to access. So it would sure be nice if people can contribute information on what they've seen with their plants.

Thanks for the suggestions; I'll look into that. The particular plants I was most curious about are Surinam Cherry (and specific cultivars of it), 'Strawberry Tree' (muntingia calabura), the non-edulis passionfruits/granidillas (alata, quadrangulis, 'Ruby Glow', 'Purple Tiger', etc.), and tropical guava.

I'm new at growing fruits but am very interested in finding out the fruiting and flowering periods for all the plants people are growing. Can you guys contribute information on your plants, stating your region, the months during which the plant blooms, and the months during which it produces ripe edible fruit? Of course this applies only to plants mature enough to fruit reliably. Most of my plants were acquired within the last few months but I have had passion fruit for over a year:

REGION: San Diego (10b)

Purple Passion Fruit (passiflora edulis 'Frederick')
BLOOMS: April through December
FRUITS: July through March
NOTES: Flowers last 24 hours but are produced continuously. Most days have at least one flower. Fruits ripen in 3 months.

I hope you guys with all your fruits can contribute. In particular the fruits that produce over extended periods are most interesting. Reportedly surinam cherry, strawberry tree (muntingia calabura), and some jaboticaba can produce continuously or nearly so over the whole year...

Nobody mentioned kumquats yet but those flower in the fall and rapidly produce ripe fruit, and seem to keep producing, or just maintaining, at least through April. You eat them whole.
