I'm also interested in the 2 types of Himalayan scions for grafting.  Could I buy that bundle for $25 too?

Thanks very much Frank!  I just got my shipment in today.  Great communication and extras!  I'll definitely be ordering more in the spring.

I have Alano and Molix, right next to each other in large 30 gallon containers, and each with a few fruit growing on them.  I used to have ants on the trees, but I have used Tanglefoot. 

  This is Alan.  I met and had a good long talk with you at that exchange in Cerritos a couple months ago.  Anyway, I think this is a fantastic experiment you did with a great video too.  You went all out and found some really interesting results in just one year.  We really need to have more people try these experiments, even if on a much smaller scale than what you did, but document and share the results with everybody.  One of the many things I'm currently trying, and is somewhat the opposite of what you did--I'm trying to figure out which pawpaws grow/fruit the best in SoCal in zone 10b.  I hope you have great success in Hawaii too!

I live right next to the coast in Orange County.  My ross sapote tree is fruiting really well with about 20+ fruits on the tree, first time fruiting--looking forward to trying them.  I was wondering about the pruning time too, but I assume the same info for canistel applies to the ross sapote.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Everything looks really good!  I was wondering, about how many years did it take for your seedling green sapote to flower?

I have a number of white sapotes planted in what are called geopots.  I think these are higher quality than many of the others.  Anyway, they work for me in 30 gallon containers.  In terms of white sapote, the best way to handle them in a fabric container is to have an airlayered white sapote.  This will alleviate the typical problem of the long tap root that a white sapote has.  If you can't do airlayered, then pick white sapotes that are generally dwarf, smaller, in size.  For example, rainbow and suebelle work well in containers.

A really good market for rare fruit with very good quality (pricey nonetheless) is Trai Cay Ngon in Westminster (right near the LA/OC border).  They have the biggest selection on a regular basis that I have seen in the area.

How do the ilamas (annona rosada) you are talking about compare to the red genova ilamas (annona diversifolia)?

Yes, I've thought that for awhile that right near the coast in Orange County really is zone 11, and not 10b.  Great to hear the Achachairus is fruiting in this region!

  I'm also in the Long Beach area and growing a number of garcinias (6 of them).  Which ones are you growing, and how old are yours?

Here is mine with the damage along with the new leaves that came after.

I had the exact same problem.  I discovered it right after the problem started and found the caterpillar causing the damage.  Not long after, the plant put out 10 leaves (5 pairs) all looking very good.

I always get a kick out of reading these abstracts...

They should have been trying interspecific grafts...not intergeneric.

I'm surprised they didn't have the common sense to realize this
Adam, hey, this is Alan from SoCal.  I was just wondering, what database do you check for searching journal articles--Google Scholar,  or some other journal database like Web of Science?  I agree, that is a very strange goal for a research journal article.  They did a lot of work for the research, and they got results that should have been expected.
