Hi Ken, If it possible that I can have some seeds too? I stay in Singapore.  Let me know how much is the cost of shipping + seeds? Thanks.

BTW, I know Polmelo can grow in true tropical climate. But I am not sure this hybrid will do well in the tropics. If not, I will drop the idea then.

Regards,
Jet

I have limited quantities of Valentine pomelo seeds.  The seeds are collected from a fruit grown at
Lindcove REC. The seeds are light pink in color.   I will pot them soon if no one wants them.

Thanks for the heads up. I now have second thoughts about growing this annona. Seems like it is picky about the surroundings and not worth  the effort. I stay in singapore with an equatorial climate which I am concern with its high humidity and wet season.

Pine apple tasting yellow small fruit is notorious for slow germination.  Too much watering will kill it during winter time here in s. florida. Its tend to drop leaves & go dorman in winter; water once a week just to keep soil barely moist.

Wood ash mixed with dam vermiculite & sand 20:30:50 combination, wood ash will trick it into thinking a Savannah burn off if seed come from dry Savannah like in Senegal.

Wet area, take a fresh shit, make sure its moist almost diarrhea & mix it in with seeds right away, wait a day, & add the material on top.  This stimulate it going through animal digestive system.

Giberallic acid produce spindly sickly plant, all my plants succumb to mysterious & die from gb treament

In West Africa its a much appreciate weed fruit of the millet field, the soil poor sand, the field get burn after harvest, sit fallow until next rainy season, and they pop all over the dry savanna.

Here in Florida I lost a few to wet season fungus, please do not give it too much tender loving care or it will not fruit well but produce edible young leaves for your millet mash with bush meat dinner. :P

Buy from different sources because they are pan african so you can find strain more suitable to your climate, young shoot were eaten by villagers in West Africa mash in smoke herring on millet mash; not bad!

Thanks for all the tips. For those of you who are successful,can you tell me your combination of scion/rootstock cultivars so that I know more about the compatibility before I attempt grafting.

Cheers,

Jet,
The bud graft method works for me.

Thanks for the advice. Can I know which cultivar is the for th scion an root stock? Was it growing healthy after the union? I Was thinking of grafting the Malaysian red with a pink one.

I have been successful grafting guavas. The only success that I've had was using the veneer graft method. That's it. Nothing else has worked for me. Also the freshness of the budwood is critical. I've had the best results when the scions are grafted the same day they were harvested. It seems that once they take, they grow fast. I did not document the time of the year that I performed those grafts. The last successful graft that I performed I think it was in the middle of the winter. It was Red Malaysian Guava and is pushing already. One more thing, it seems like some of the grafts take awhile to push as well. Hope that helps.

I have tried to do it many times, results are the same. But I am sure someone out there must have done it successfully using a certain method of grafting technique. I am talking about the tropical guavas( psidium guajava). Thanks anyone.


Cheers,
Jet
