Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for optunia
« on: May 17, 2015, 11:58:44 AM »
Hi all, I really wanted to grow some optunia varieties with red fleshed fruits. Let me know if anyone has got to offer. Thanks.

Cheers,
Jet

Hi bro, it's been a year since this post. Has it ever fruit for you?

Cheers,
Jet



So William, what's the end story here. Did it ever fruit for you? Did it require hand or cross pollination eventually?
I got one plant remaining. Originally seeds from Jim West.

No has never fruited,

Although I am in the tropics, and the temps never get below 65F on the coldest night of the year.  these plants do drop their leaves, and you have just the main stem, almost as soon as it drops the leaves, in a week or so, new leaves, start coming out.

I was thinking maybe I could try and use pollen from another passiflora, type,  just to see if it would fruit.  even if the seeds from said fruit would be hybrids if fertile.

Hi all, anyone got any species of optunia pads to sell? Wouldn't mind any type as long they produce fruits,

Cheers,
Jet

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Rusty looking Sapodilla from Thailand

Hi Bangkok, are you staying in singapore? They are in season now and can be found in many fruit stalls here.

Jet

Krasuey is fairly dark inside and the brown inside is less reddish or olive than others.

So this is the one they sell all over Thailand? Strange that it isn't in Singapore yet.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rusty looking Sapodilla from Thailand
« on: October 20, 2014, 04:33:43 AM »
Hi all, i got these from the local mkts, supposedly from Thailand. They are rusty looking and looks similiar to a Canistel fruit. But i find them to be nicer than those other common varieties more readily available. They are must less gritty and take only about 2 days to ripen from a rock hard stage. Any more information on this variety will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Cheers,
Jet

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Have you seen anything like this on guavas?
« on: August 26, 2014, 11:58:15 AM »
There are in fact about 4 of such flower buds growing straight from the main branches. Really strange. Did any encounter this for their guavas?

The pic was taken at night, apology for the poor quality taken with my iphone 4. But you can make out the flower bud somewhere in the middle of the pic. Sorry it's inverted.

Cheers,

Hi, I am interested in the big red sugar apples seeds, are they available? I have some annona paludosa for exchange. Or simply I can pay you for the seeds.

Cheers,
Jet


My sugar apple season is ending and I picked some beauties this weekend. The biggest this year are 20 ounces for both Big Red and Big Green. The Big Red on the scale was actually a bit larger but a bird attacked one side and removed a nice chunk. I have gotten larger ones in the past but this year I did not thin the crop so as a result I did not get any of the bigger ones (24oz+). The quality of the pulp is still awesome and I encourage more people to try these especially since they are easy to fruit in pots. Fresh seeds are available so PM me if interested.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: A perfect guava
« on: May 06, 2014, 08:50:54 PM »
It took 4 years to find out that the skin color is no where near those shown in a ultra tropical climate. But i think those in a cooler climate has a better chance than me coz the color seems more vibrant with lower temperature.

Cheers.
Jet

So! what is unique for you?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Ultra tropical is not for Cherimoya
« on: May 06, 2014, 06:23:50 AM »
Hi all, I have been growing Cherimoya in singapore for about 2 years. I started it off from seed and it has grown slowly but surely into a healthy 1.5m plant. I am just curious what will be the fate of it in the coming years? Other than it won't ever fruit? Will it still be a healthy tree and maybe have flowers, but keep dropping?  Anyone out there has made such a silly experiment like mine before?

It tastes much like any good decent guava, nice tasting, but nothing really unique as compared with other guavas.

Thanks dxgn for your report! and what about fruit taste, pulp, etc?

I got the seeds for this variety from a Dr.Chiranjit Parmar, whom I got to know from an article in the CRFG magazine back in 2008. It took about 4 years for it to fruit as I contain in within a pot. I remember that I pop this question of whether it will stay true to type. The answer is more or less yes, but it will be subjected to a large extent the climatic conditions of the local area. I found out that this is largely true. The fruits bear very very slight hints of pink, and the fruits texture and shape by and large resembles the ones I have in the pic. Singapore has  an equatorial climate, so I believe the color of my fruits are nowhere near these is because I have a uniform temp and the color much depends on maybe the day/night time temp variations and probably needs a mild winter. They are probably grown in an area where the cilmate is more subtropical than singapore.

Try to contact him thru Fruitpedia for seeds. If not, I have 2 fruits ripening in another 2 months time.

Wow, that's a very reddish/pretty 'Apple' guava. I wish that variety was here in S. Florida, USA. It definitely would be worth the trouble bagging. There's quite nothing like a perfect, worm free, quality good tasting guava.

Hi trf, I would recommend you going to the desaru fruit farm in Jb. It is just a ferry ride away from the singapore changi ferry terminal. Good for a weekend get away.

Hi pat, how much are you selling the seeds? Do you have a pic of the fruit? Thanks,

Hi, I was thinking of separating the little branch from the main stem, merely by cutting and rooting it. What are the chances? I thought it was still too young for marcotting. Otherwise, I will drop the whole idea.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Identify this passion fruit flower?
« on: April 07, 2014, 05:05:45 AM »
Is this Passiflora quadrangularis - Giant Granadilla? I notice that it is not as color as those pics I found from the internet. And it seems to be quite a bland fruit as compared to the other varieties. Any comments?



Jet

Hi all, any chance of growing it in the true tropics, if it ever fruit?

Cheers,
Jet
