Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Shine Muscat
« on: May 18, 2022, 10:42:06 PM »
Hi all,

I am looking for Shine Muscat vine for a while, does anyone know where to buy it?

Thanks,
Al

Very common in Korea, and this variety from Japan
I can get scion after the leaves have fallen
In order to obtain good quality grape clusters, sufficient grain of grapes removal and Gibberellin treatment are required.
And that is why this will never be grown in the US- too much work. The general public isnít gonna pay 25+ per cluster.
If you could source scions this fall, Iíd be willing to get some?

Is it just me, or are a lot of threads being posted in the wrong part of the forum?
Anyways...I think the best way to ID them would be using genetic sequencing. Unfortunately, I don't have the tools needed for that. Might cost some $. But again, I'd rather have a positive ID than to wait 5 years until flowering.
Or better yet, just source male and female scions and graft. Grafting garcinias ain't that hard. Although I still need to do more :P

Get a 12x12x48 box. Bring some tape so it move around, cover top of pot with paper and tape so not to lose soil.  Gently drop into box without breaking branches. Reinforce corners so not to crushbox. Check in with luggage. Consult with wonderfruit on how tall plant with pot, just in case it needs to be bigger that 48 inches. Luck.

Is Wonderfruit a nursery or location? I tried messaging the user on here and no response.
Wonderfruit is a collector down in South FL. Really nice guy. Should check him out.

This is what 8-3-9 does when you spread it a couple of times a year.
This is the third time I had to heavily prune the guava. It's already about to hit the ceiling.

I got a 25 gallon breadfruit that needs to go. Itís free, but I keep the pot!
I doubt there is anyone who is near me. But I figure itís better to give away than to cull.

Got some cool plants from da eugenia man.
Thanks Kevin!

Ok so I found a source for plinia Jaboticaba var. sabara seeds.what makes these special is that they are sabara. Trees take 8-12 years to fruit and are adapted to a wide range of soil.
This is a joke.
This is not final, and there is a high chance I might not go through.
Ok guys this is not worth it Iím not going through. ;D
Sorry about hyping you all up. I need to study for the ACT! If I donít get a 34+ÖIím done for ;D

I got you Ryan!  $80 per Sabara seed ;) LOL!

Thanks I knew someone would have it! Getting harder and harder to find these!

Different looking fruits, same tree.
Very interesting 🤨.
The red one is 11 brix
The dark red one is 15 brix.
So tell me what happened?
Even from the beginning the fruits look different?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Persimmon dormancy
« on: May 12, 2022, 05:59:11 PM »
I got 10 barefoot persimmons a couple years back. Some were so bad looking that they were like the letter h -2 big roots and thatís it. I planted them all, and surprisingly they all made it with no extra care. Just prune back the top part so the plant isnít too stressed. But yes, I do prefer potted plants.

I have some pink guavas I can send cuttings of. If interested, please send a pm.

Those look like persimmons

There are struggles for us in the tropics too. I live in puna on the Big Island which comes with year round rain and high humidity pretty much all the time. No dry season. I dove hard into annonas last year after learning of all the awesome species available and finding this forum. Already had a fruiting soursop at the time but was hungry for more (pun intended). Soursops and rollinias grow effortlessly here and fruit on their own so everybody grows them. I wanted some sugar apple action up in my life. I killed so many plants both seed and scion material the past year but the few that succeeded are cherished and usually vigorous having survived puna wetness. My fruit tree/plant index is currently 129 different species of sub tropic and tropic fruits. This addiction is great 😁 and supportable by wives 🤙 the biggest downside of my climate is most mangifera indica varieties do poorly here which was a big bummer at first but then learned of the few that I could a have some types like nam doc mai, kasturi, lalee jewo, and kuini , so not too bad. Also I get to struggle with being a reverse zone pusher growing figs, blueberries, cherimoya, and kiwi in zone 12 lol no grapes for me
Pretty cool you live in Hawaii. If I lived there, I would invest heavily into durians, mangosteen, rambutan, pulasan, langasat, salak, marang, pedalai, and chepedak
It does suck that you can't grow much mangoes though. The newer zill varieties are the bomb! Figs taste really bad to me, so instead of those, I'd go with kwai muk. It makes me wonder why people would invest in getting over 50 varieties of figs? Funny stuff.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for passion fruit plants
« on: May 11, 2022, 07:31:40 PM »
Looking for two types of passion fruit plants or cuttings as I would like to have some grow up my greenhouse.
I have some cool stuff to trade
or I can also buy
I hope the can be self fertile also.
Thanks much.

I guess that this crop is the one people up north have an advantage on.
Mine grow fast and fruit fast. I recently picked up several other varieties like saijo, more fuyu, taenanashi, some korean kind, and others.
They are just popping flowers now.

Just recently harvested this store bought one. Didnít taste as good as expected as it probably didnít get enough fertilizer.
I have some Hilo whites growing and am hyped up for those once they fruit.

23
Your greenhouse looks awesome.
I just encourage you to keep up the motivation and curiosity with plants and nature.
Most high schoolers that have participated on the forum drop off ,as other interestís or work and whatever else take over.
Thank you.
Right now, I feel like there is nothing that can replace this hobby. I mean I love eating tropical fruits and watching them grow, but Iíll have stuff pop into life the older I get - maybe do this, maybe do that, and my own worries and problems. But I do hope I can do this no matter what.

24
Thanks everyone for the encouragement. Iím trying to get things together and get some stuff to fruit in the coming years.

Hereís what the greenhouse currently looks like if anyones interested.
All the other plants are outside though.
Like mentioned there were setbacks, but in the end, itís just making me a better grower.

25
I feel your pain, Ryan!
Everyone laughed when I got hooked on tropical fruit trees. Boise Idaho is zone 6, so a greenhouse was the only way to go.  I struggle getting things to fruit, and cant put anything in the ground due to cold clay soils and huge tree roots under my greenhouse.

I like to think my trees have it pretty good compared to Florida or the tropics - I can give them the weather they need, and avoid the hurricanes, etc. And greenhouses, as a hobby, are way cheaper than other things, like horses.

So hang in there!

Carolyn
Carolyn,
Thanks for the encouragement. I saw some pictures of your greenhouse and it looks amazing!
