Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for Rosigold tree
« on: June 06, 2022, 12:32:13 PM »
Hey, Broward County folks. Was looking to support a local here in Broward who might have a 3 gallon grafted Rosigold for a friend who hit up the big box stores to no avail. Rather than drive around and kill my gas, thought I'd ask here first. Shoot me a PM if you have one you'd like to sell. Man do I miss Bender's Grove...

So this is round 1 of the cleanout. Local pickup only. Thanks, Keith

Psidium Longipetiolatum 3 gallon 24" x 2 $40ea TWO LEFT

Imbe (G. Livingstoneii) 5/gallon root-bound/recently pruned  about 4-5' tall - produces 95% male flowers $40 SOLD

Achacha (G. humilis) 7 gallon 48"  flushing new growth now. $120 SOLD

1-3 gallon Yellow Grumichama (seedling hasn't flowered, mother plant gives yellow fruit) $15

The following is a garcina collection of dubious identification. These seedlings were marked until several pots spilled over and now I am not 100% sure which is what. read the descriptions carefully an then take your bets! Either way they are all guaranteed to be either g. intermedia, g. brasilensis, g. acuminata, or g. humilis.

I am 90% certain that this DOUBLE pot (two plants in one container) is achacha (g. humilis) One plant is about 9" the other "6 $20

I am 90% certain that this double pot (two plants in one container) is either g. brasilensis (improved lemon drop mangosteen) or g. intermedia (lemon drop mangosteen). There is a slight chance that it is achacha. Plants are small, about 4-5" $15

I am almost 100% certain that this is garcinia acuminata (bumpy madrono) from my mother tree. It is about 6" tall. $10

Tropical Fruit Discussion / After 9 years - Lucs is about to ripen
« on: March 30, 2022, 07:19:21 PM »
Potted 9 year old seedling flowered for a 2nd time last fall. Here I am with the fruit about 3.5 inches long, finally coloring up. Those of you who have fruited this plant before, how orange should this get and what softness for optimum ripeness? Of course I am paranoid that a freaking squirrel or rat will get it long before then, so I will probably pick it way too early.

I know my g. acuminata will ripen to yellow and stay on the tree for a couple months. Thoughts anyone?

Parting with a few of my doubles - I hate to, but ... two of them, the Carambola and the Araza are fruiting and flowering now

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mutant Lemon Zest fruit?
« on: June 04, 2021, 12:42:01 PM »
So this fell from my tree this morning. Was so high up in the canopy I didn't notice it until it dropped. So far I'm afraid to open it in case a hatchling xenomorph is still forming inside. I'll wait for backup when my wife gets home.

Anyone seen this happen before? Siamese twin mango fruit?

South Florida members:

Looking for a few good folks to go in on a combined shipping order.
I received the following email from Linda Nickerson regarding her variety of the Thompson s-8

“We can ship Sugar Dragon cuttings to Florida, but since I cut fairly large cuttings, they must go in a large, flat rate box, $25 for shipping and handling.  The cuttings are only $8 each, and I can get 15 - 20 per box, so it would be best if you could find someone to go in on some cuttings with you.  We have another variety that is delicious that you can't get anywhere else called Maria Rosa.  It is a pale pink, large, very sweet, and hardier than Delight., that you might be interested in.  We think Sugar Dragon is the only self fertile magenta-fleshed variety available on the market right now.”

So I’m thinking if we get at least 10 or more orders we can get these for about $10-$12 a cutting, shipped. I’m happy to make my home the pickup spot. I live in SW Ranches (just west of I-75 in central Broward).

 If you are interested, Pm me directly

While not a fruiting plant, I know there are collectors on here who might be interested in a trade with this beautiful flowering vine. Obviously looking for a domestic (stateside) trade to keep costs down.
Will consider another option other than mangosteen.

Might as well add, I can sell this vine as well $15 plus shipping for a 1 gallon bare rooted plant at least 24" tall

So I was looking to grow a bunch of climbing vines in 1-2 gallon pots but I need to keep them in tight groups due to space. Does anyone have suggestions regarding 1. A cheap yet effective support for the climber (a single bamboo stake?), and 2. Whether or not to simply keep pruning/pinching the top to maintain a bush shape until ready to sell/plant out.

My concern is that they will all begin wrapping around one another and make separation a nightmare later one.
Thanks, Keith

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Galaxy mango
« on: May 01, 2016, 09:03:57 PM »
Hey everyone,
So my little Galaxy purchased at Bender's 2 years ago needs to be stepped up from its current 10 Gal to either a 15 or needs to be dropped into the ground. But I don't want to commit another Keitt (read: lanky and rather unattractive) to my yard until I've had a chance to really check out the taste and color (thats really the only reason I bought it to begin with).

So, does anyone have a fruiting tree and can someone take some newer  pictures of the fruit as it nears maturity? And who will actually have fruit this year at all? I can swap!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cherry of the rio grande dieback
« on: August 05, 2015, 05:49:38 PM »
Does anyone have any experience with dieback on this Eugenia? I have a 3-4 year old potted tree that goes through these periods and then recovers. I'm not fertilizing much and the water stays a little on the dry side (I've read to avoid overwatering). Use only rainwater it well-water, gets full sun most of the day. Is this species of Eugenia prone to this? You think this may lessen if I plant it out?
Tired of pruning back dead wood on a non-fruiting plant every 5-6 months.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / jabo seedling IDs
« on: November 30, 2014, 08:32:38 PM »
Hi guys. These three jabo seedlings were given to me a few years ago (one of them is from Adam). They are about 1.2-2.5' tall in 5 gallon pots might be about 3 years old or so. Any clues? Thanks in advance.

all three side by side

I have both g. Hombronia and Luc's Mexican lemoncillo. Same batch of seeds, same shade, same nutrients, same soil. Most are growing fine as in the picture below. But as you notice in the other two images, same exact plants exhibit a Bunchy top issue (something I am familiar with in bananas) where several dwarf series of leaves emerge, stay predominantly yellow and essentially seems to inhibit vertical growth.

Any ideas on the culprit? Potential treatment? (Middle is seashore mangosteen, bottom is Luc's)

So I have a bunch of 3-6 month old seedlings that just got hit hard by thrips in my shadehouse for a second time. Usually I manually remove them then apply soap/water. I have them under control now, but in a few weeks I will be leaving them unattended for a bit of time and contemplated the use of a systemic like imidacloprid on them to ensure some protection in my absence.

So my question is, how much for such a small container (cup to pint size and a couple larger ones in a 1gal)?
Any potential adverse affects if I over apply (the watering system is self contained, so no leaking into the environment)?

Label and online sources don't say anything in particular about seedlings. Just 2 tsp/gal
Thanks for your thoughts.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rollinia leaf discoloration
« on: January 19, 2014, 09:46:13 AM »
I have several rollinia deliciosa seedlings that recently began developing these brown veins. Any guess as to the cause? I did notice it happened after a good dose of diluted fish oil fertilizer. Don't know if it's even related. Ideas?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pitangatuba or Mexican garcinia?
« on: August 05, 2013, 12:00:53 PM »
Hey everyone. Need a seedling ID. One of these is Berto's pitangatuba, the other, Luc's unnamed Mexican garcinia. I obviously mislabeled a couple of my seeds. Which is which?
