If you're interested in purchasing these scions, I recommend reaching out to local nurseries, horticultural suppliers, or online gardening stores that specialize in selling fruit tree varieties like these.

I hope this helps! Let me know if there's anything else I can assist you with. 
Local nurseries do not sell scions unfortunately. They sell grafted trees.

I found its easy to buy a tree and grow them in pot or ground then you will have constant supplay of scions of that particular variety.
I'm topworking a tree, so trying to avoid a whole tree purchase.

Timor red is not a great jackfruit IME.
And it does not have red arils IME.
The name is deceiving.

Itís cruchy.

Itís worse then a number of our random seedlings.
Itís no way close to amber in quality IME.

I am just saying this so that people donít think itís just their tree that isnít good or meet up to hype etc.

Real ďredĒ or ďvery dark orangeĒ jack is really good IMO!
Like 10/10 and Timor is like 4/10.

Not hatin just my opinion :D

At around 10cm girth the jackfruit tree will be able to hold a fruit to maturity and should be flowering,IME.
And thats anything from 2-3 years from seed sown for a seedling.
But depends on environment.
Usually young treeís donít give good flavour if many fruits are kept on.
We thin out the fruit early on for young treeís.

Peace!
Do you guys grow TM Red in Australia? What is IME and IMO?
My TM Red is not fruited yet. Itís sold to me as red jack fruit.
In my experience
In my opinion

Dont think they are growing a 20-46 but if Paul is involved I can understand how the name was mucked up.
Oh, do you mean Paul who says "Laura" Farms and "Choh-kwet" avocado?  :)
🤣🤣🤣 he butchers every word. I mentioned it to him a couple of times and his response was, " I have a NY accent".  I told him that I also was born and raised in NYC and I pronounce words correctly lol

A compadre sent me this. Kiddo lives over there by McDill

Not many mango varieties and lemon zest is listed twice! I still might go lol.

If your guava was not grafted ĖunlikelyĖ then these three new shoots are the same plant.

So if that's the unlikely scenario what situation am I most likely in and what am I growing now?  Should I just do what you said anyway and let it grow to see what develops?

I did find a picture of what it looked like last July when the main part was dead and the small shoots were starting to come up if that helps at all.


If it was grafted, then you now have an inferior tasting random guava seedling. Guava are usually not grafted though, so it's probably the original variety.

Those people who tasted Alphonso mango grown in Konkan region of India, have come across any mango variety which tastes better?
I only like Uttar pradesh grown Dasheri tastewise. It was at same level tastewise.
Keshar, mallika, benganpalli, imam pasand, Ratna, Sindhu which I tasted were not even close to Alphanso.
There are tons of mango varieties better than Alphonso here in the US. You don't have access to them in India unfortunately.

It seems like 100% of cherilatas are Painter's because Painter is the name of the guy that first created the hybrid. I believe all of them derive from his original?

Do you have to manually pollinate the flowers?
Unless it was a seedling of a painters.

Thanks guys!
Bovine, looks like you are almost there! Surprised how fast they take

Looking to purchase about 5 coconut cream mangoes when just about ripe.
Probably way too early.  Where?  How?  In person?  Shipped?  (I realize most likely you're a fraudulent spam account, "female" named "Bruce"--unless you're Bruce/Caitlin Jenner).
