Dear members,

  Thank you all for your great support in the previous group order https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=45912.msg447057. The trees were pulled from ground on 1/15/22, got shipped by air on 1/17/22,
and on 1/21/22 and 1/22/22, more than 50% trees were already at buyers' hand. It was truly an amazing journey for the Yangmei trees, we received lots of good feedback and new inquires.

  This is an tentative plan to import another 500 Yangmei trees at price $45 per tree( trees are  two to four years old, bigger than the previous group order) with air freight deliver service. There will be following seven varieties and male trees(at same price $45).
   
    Biqi(荸荠): Small fruits (10-20g) with small pits, black, juicy, sweet with aroma. Said to be tasty
    Late Growing(晩稲): Small-medium fruits, matures late, purple-black, delicate flesh, sweet and sour, juicy and fragrant.
    Crystal(水晶): white surface, medium size(around 14 grams), juice, fresh and sweet, slightly sour, top quality.
    Dongkui(东魁): large (20-40g), dark red, excellent flavor.
    Black Crystal(Also know as Big black carbon, 黑晶): large (15-30g), dark black, sweeter than Dongkui, super delicious.
    An Hai (Soft,Silk, 安海软丝): Medium size, creamy taste, juicy, and sweet, excellent flavor, best variety in southern area in China.
    WuSu(乌酥): Good flavor, the best appraised variety in the Guangdong province, grows well in the warm area.
   

    Trees are  2-4 year old bare-root trees(required by USDA APHIS).

    Group order members in North California San Francisco Bay Area, and South California, can do local pick up after the plants arrive. For others, we can mail by UPS or USPS, shipping fee is expected to be paid by buyers.
 
   Please add your tree request, minimum 4 trees per order in this thread below, I will summarize.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / 2022 Yangmei (Myrica Rubra) Group Order
« on: December 16, 2021, 02:52:44 AM »

Although the plant price and transportation cost have skyrocketed, we keep the price reasonable. There will be following four varieties.

Yangmei Grafting
  • California coast tree: Myrica Californica( another name is Morella Californica or Pacific Wax Myrtle, Chinese Name: 蜡杨梅)
  • East coast or central area: Myrica Cerifera   as per the above article and web pagehttps://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=43270.600

Yangmei Pollination
 
Chinese version 如果周围10公里以内有杨梅树,并且这些杨梅树能结果,那就说明该地有适合杨梅结果的雄株,没有必要单独另栽种雄株;如果是杨梅适宜生长区,山里有很多野生杨梅,那就更没有必要栽种杨梅雄株;如果城市绿化程度高的地区也没有必要栽种雄株,因为现在绿化强调植物多样性,也必然会配植一些杨梅树;东魁杨梅雄雌同株几率比较高的品种,也没有必要单独栽种雄株。如果在从来就没有人种杨梅、也不知道杨梅是何物的地区栽种就要配植杨梅雄株,规模化种植因为要求稳产也要单独配植杨梅雄株。

在我们的团体订单中,我们可以根据每个成员的需要,添加雄性嫁接树( $40/株) 。
 
English version
If there are Yangmei trees within  about  7 miles(10 kilometers) and these bayberry trees can bear fruit,
it means that there are male plants suitable for bayberry fruiting in the area, and there is no need to plant another
 male plant separately; if it is a suitable growing area for Yangmei, In China, there are many wild Yangmei trees in the mountain area,
there is no need to plant male trees, even in a city has a high degree of greening, there is no need to plant male trees, because of  the
plant diversity,  some Yangmei trees will inevitably be planted;

 Dongkui tree is more likely to be monoecious, after a couple years of growing since planting, this variety can start to do self pollination.

 If you plant Yangmei in an area where it has never been planted before, and you donít know know what Yangmei is,
you must plant Yangmei male plants. Large-scale planting requires a separate Yangmei male plant because of the requirement for stable production.

 Lots of people say that the most of grafted Yangmei trees in the current market are self fertile. Technically this can be achieved by using male seedling for root stock, or putting both female scion and male scion together above root stock. But theoretically the root stock can not be guaranteed to be male, it grows from selected seeds, and there is a chance that one part of scions above the root stock maybe fall apart. So it is always safe to add certain portion of grafted male trees based on buyer's own judgement.

 In our group order, we can request to add male grafted trees per each member's need, it is $40/per tree.
 
 Shipping Cost Estimation for the buyers
    Each buyer in the group order is expected to pay the shipping expense before the trees are mailed out from Bill myself.
    ( 团体团购会员都应在邮寄树之前支付运费)
    Members in the bay area or southern California can do local pick-up.
    In the bay area, one site is in city Campbell, or we may add one site in east bay based on the buyer's number and location.
    In the southern California, the site is to be decided based on the members' location.

    For all other areas, we do shipping for every one. Please do the shipping cost estimation from zip code 95008 by each member.
  We are going to use 24"L x 8"W x 8"H shipping box.
