Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Free Yangmei Giveaway FINISHED
« on: November 13, 2023, 11:36:33 AM »
Awww I missed the giveaway.  Congrats to the winner.  Thanks for having such a wonderful giveaway Ryan! 

Adam is very cool peoples.  We purchased a Superior Lemon drop on ebay this summer and went to pick it up instead of having him ship it.  He gifted us a Pitangatuba and a Grimal aswell.  I just noticed the small S. Lemon drop is already holding its first fruit.

Mee too!   I have a lead, but he says the fruits will not be ready for another month or so.  I'll let you know as soon as I hear back from him.

Thank you !
How big are the 7 gal ?

Last time we went was in the spring and they were small.  Give Mike a call and ask him.  We got ours a couple of years back and it was a nice size for the price.

We got ours from Mike at Treesnmore in Palm City.

Hello all.  Im wanting to try some fall grafting of atemoyas.  If anyone has Hilary White and Carcarlo Reticulata or any atemoyas they are needing to prune.  We would like to graft some.  Hilary White, Pinks M, Leo #2, and a couple of others failed in the spring and we would like to try again now.  We can trade cuttings or I can pay for them. Let me know what you have.  Currently growing Gefner, Dream, Leo #3, Lisa, Super AP, ONG Bumpy, Priestly, C. Island, ONG Ruby Red

Kaz posting the description on the Estee loquat may help to increase the interest.  I don't remember the description, but recall you saying it was a top tasting variety in another post.  I would be interested in a few but would need scions not trees.  We are out of space and cannot add anymore trees. 

I'll take the dragonfruit cuttings, but let me see if we are going that way this week so you don't have to ship.  I'll let you know in the next couple of days.  I wish I would have gotten some of those mango trees earlier. 

Hey Ryan, I messaged you the other day and never heard back.  I wonder if you maybe didn't see the message?  It was regarding the Luc's Garcinia seeds. 

76 I didn't realize my previous number was already picked

Florida Hills Nursery sells tissue culture grown bananas for a good price.
Thanks. I see that they have gold finger. I will order that one, and may be Lacatan. Still looking for Dwarf Brazilian and Dwarf red or jamaican and Raja puri

Are you just looking for tissue culture plants?  We have raja puri, dwarf braziliian, and dwarf red (but this one is just a pup so no pups available just yet)  but they are not tissue culture

We have some strawberries, not sure the variety, growing for a couple 2-3 years.  We first bought some starts from Walmart and then we planted some seeds of some Plant City grown strawberries.  Anyways I would plant them in the pots of my figs and other fruit trees and they kind of just grew there for the past few years.  We don't give them any special care and they kind of just survive on their own.  Remind me next time and I'll take you a few to add to your patch.  They aren't the biggest strawberries though, maybe they need to be fertilized more.  We have started to plant them in our flower bed to use as ground cover. 

I'm down to jump on that florida order for 20 jumbo seeds.

If noone speaks up I'll look at adding garcinias to my permit and placing an order next week. I'll message you to see if you want to add your seeds to mine.

I want to order 10 seeds also if anyone in Florida is going to place an order and doesn't mind me jumping in with their order.  The permit site is not easy for me to navigate and don't want to mess it up.

I have Maria Black and I've tasted the fruit.  The flavor was good, it was similar to Oro Negro, but matures earlier.  The tree seems healthy and growing well.
Thanks for the feedback.  We also have an Oro negro, but it didn't fruit this year.  Actually none of our avocados fruited this year.

« on: May 26, 2023, 06:34:58 PM »
we do not remove the roots, just cut from the mother and plant just like it comes out of the ground.   Either in a pot or directly into a new location in the ground.  I also ship the pups that way, Ill wash off all the dirt and remove dead or broken roots and wrap the roots in newspaper and bag them.  I figure if the roots are healthy why would you want to remove them, it will just take the plant longer to recover.  But I do understand why some people cut the roots and treat the corm for bugs and diseases in different areas.

Hi Sam.  Its suppose to be a good candidate for growing in a pot, but would always do better in the ground if you hae room for it.  I seen a few videos even a couple Paul did.  Its also a very prolific producer from what I can see.  Hopefully its a winner and It will be replacing some of the other varieties we have.

These came from Leaph in WPB
You didn't ask him for the backstory?

Someone else made the trip and we just asked them to get them for us.  I messaged Leaph but didn't hear back, maybe the wrong account.  I guess I can message him again.

Where did you find it?  I've been thinking of planting that one myself.  Either MB or the one Julian Lara calls Improved Pollock.  I believe it's a mid-season, or fall, avocado, but don't know the exact months.  I'm pretty certain it would ripen between Simmonds and Monroe.  After eating my way through a box of California avocados, various varieties, I've come to a new appreciation of Florida avocados (but they have to be fully mature and properly ripened)!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Maria Black avovado
« on: May 25, 2023, 08:27:12 PM »
Does anybody know the story behind this avocado.  I remember someone talking about it a few years back but I can't find it.  We just picked up a couple small 1 gallon.  And trying to find the backstory.  I know it's a dwarf variety and that it produces large black avocados. I remember the founders name was actually "Maria Black" if im not mistaken.TIA

We had a swarm land on our potted longan Tree yesterday.  We tried to capture it but the queen flew away and the rest of the bees soon followed her.  Swarms usually make pit stops in search of their new homes, they normally move on within a day or two.

Looks super healthy and green. Love all the foliage. Do you have automatic irrigation? Just saw a lone flower on my today that I got from Tree N More some years back. Fruited in a 35gal container but never again since I planted in ground lol.

Does Mike offer grafted trees or did you get a seedling from him?  We have a couple of small seedlings one is a couple of years old and the other maybe a year old.  I would love to get a grafted one if Mike has them available. 

Ach yours looks great, congrats on the one fruit.  Hope it fruits many more for you in the years to come. 

a couple of years back I started on a quest to find the best loquat in our area.  I received very little response from one of our local gardening groups.  Loquats are everywhere around here, they are planted on the main street all along the rd.  and just about in every neighborhood.  We did collect scions from a big tree in one of our neighbors back yard.  It produces large fruit, but Im pretty sure it was a nursery tree when it was first planted.  Im not 100% sure.  We have a couple of small grafted trees but we are waiting for them to fruit.  Im going to ask again in some more groups and see if we can't help with this quest.  Thank you for all your hard work. 

Seedlings arrived and looking great.  Never got notified that it was coming but the post lady caught us as we were headed out.  So we were able to put them inside instead of leaving them out in this heat all day. 
Anyways thank you so much Brian, I'm glad I could add these to my collection.  Plus these are some very nice sized and looking seedlings, unlike the tiny ones other people sell or offer for trade.
