Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Can anyone tell me about these mangoes..
« on: January 31, 2014, 05:54:53 PM »
Today I grafted Buxton spice, Pickering, Valencia pride, and j-12 onto a lemon meringue. I guess I won't use the others.

Thanks for the help

The USDA Buxton Spice is from a seedling. Even though they said it's poly it's listed as unverified by the USDA. I have an actual grafted Buxton Spice, please do not share that budwood as Buxton Spice as it's from a seedling. I would hate to create varietal confusion down the line.

When my tree has budwood available I can share it with you to replace the seedling one.

How did you know it came from the USDA? :) and no I haven't shared anything I've received. K thanks I appreciate that.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Questions on Pomegranate trees
« on: December 27, 2013, 09:59:42 AM »
Someone on Craigslist in my area is selling 5-6ft Angel Red pomegranate trees for $15. Is it worth picking up one? And are there any ways to tell the difference between them and other varieties, other than cutting open a fruit?

I just picked up a 'honey heart' cherimoya for $29. It's a 3 foot tall whip but for the price what could I expect

After reading this I went back searching for one, but at my home depot they didn't have any arghh
Oh well hopefully they'll get them soon

They have 7 gal sapote, loquat, strawberry guava, pineapple guava, and fig trees for $20. Don't know how good a deal that is to people, but figured I'd post anyway.

Haha thanks, hopefully it'll help with varmints. I just had a random moment of creativity. It's was a support from a pallet leftover after making raised beds, and had some paint leftover from my daughter's chair that I painted.
