Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: This can be myrica rubra?
« on: August 24, 2022, 01:13:13 PM »
Hello Luis, what is your latitude and distance from the ocean there?  How hot is it normally during summer?
Hello my friend how are you? My altitude is 320m, 40Km from sea on transition between coast and interior.
39° 37' 31.893" N 8° 39' 57.224" O

Hello Luis, everything is good here.  Has not rained in 6 months but thats normal.  We are used to it here, nothing new.  Regarding the plants, I shaded my tree for the first summer then put it in full sun.  Its growing fine in full exposure and its quite hot here.  I think the weather in my area is maybe hotter than yours.
Thank you very much my friend.

Just make sure to acclimate your plants to full sun if not used to it yet.

Not sure about how long to fruiting, as we are growing outside of native habitat. With the grafted plants, I would hope within 5 years, but who knows?
Thanks! I know there are some big trees with crops on my country. This seeds came from fresh fruit of very dark, big and sweet fruits... lets see how this will go...  ;D

Looks to be it
Some plants have more serrated leaves...
The rootstock suckers on mine are serrated
I think age has to do with it.
Ok thank you very much! I already confirmed and they are the real thing because a friend grow them from fruits that she ated. They are very dark and big.

Please any advice to plant them? More sun or more protected? Cold hardiness? Thanks!   :)

This is the fruit of my suposedly dekopon tree... i don't think it is a dekopon but this don't have the usual tangerine flavor. It's more sweet and much less acidity... very good!

By the pics it looks like the plant does not have much healthy leaves to make energy for the fruit. Have awlays wondered do bananas on such plants grow and ripen normally, i would guess they would abort or smt, unless the mother plant uses the energy from the mat and not her own??
Hi! No, she doesn't have any healthy leaves due to cold weather. But she doesn't have any problem with it. The energy came from the roots... the bunch is growing fast and very healthy and i'm seeing already 4 hands... i'm not saying that healthy leaves are not important, but she is growing very well.

This year we just got light frosts, just -2C. We didn't reach -3C i think. But last year we got -4C or a bit less...
I never protect her. This is a really cold hardy variety!

Gorgeous- have you tasted the fruit?
Thank's! No, it's the first time my banana trees get flower. I think the flavor of Da Jiao is similar to Namwah.  ;D
