I'm moving somewhere cold soon. I am looking for suggestions of things that are easy to take care of in pots and fruit quickly (so no jaboticaba, even though they do well in pots). I've heard sugar apple is good, any other suggestions?

Thought this video was interesting. Has anyone tried the fruit? Wondering if it is that much better than other cactus fruit

« on: January 22, 2023, 08:40:12 PM »
Anyone know how the fruit is on this? Saw one growing at UC Santa Cruz arboretum rare fruit collection.

I'm trying to find new plant related things to do in SB and the surrounding areas (main focus is tropical fruit but also like general plant stuff).
Have already done:
SB Botanical Garden
SB Orchid Estate
Mission Rose Garden
Franchesci Park
Orpet Park
Alice Keck
Courthouse / Sunken Gardens
Taft Gardens
Lake Carneros

Leaves seem pretty thin.

Also, would azalea mix be a good potting soil for jabos? For the acidity

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Minnesota Rare Fruit Growers

Does anyone know if there is anything like CRFG in Minnesota or know of any good gardening / farming groups? I might end up having to move there in the next few years and would like to continue my hobby. This would be for growing outside, not space station / heated greenhouse tropicals.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Does this Grimal bark peel look normal
« on: August 06, 2021, 10:23:34 PM »
Not sure if I should be concerned or not

Curious about the difference, I know Hilo gets all of the rain but then that potentially causes issues with some plants.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Eugenia grafting compatibility?
« on: April 19, 2021, 01:03:51 AM »
I remember seeing a matrix of grafting compatibility on here for annona - is there something similar for eugenia / syzygium?

Curious what was the most hyped by collectors in the past.

I'm curious if anyone has tried to hybridized deliciosa and one of the cold hardier varieties

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is wrong with this pineapple?
« on: February 07, 2021, 12:38:57 PM »
This is in full sun, well draining soil. Lows have been mid 40s. Not sure if it is cold damage or sunburn(I think pineapples are fine in full sun?)

Lowest temp has been mid 40s, and it a bit wet in this spot. I'm wondering too if I should move it to full sun - the plant is about two feet tall.

« on: November 26, 2020, 06:31:30 PM »
My Vernon fruit are still hard but haven't seemed to get any bigger than the baseball size they are currently at. If I pick now will they ripen completely ? Or do I need to wait until a certain state on the tree

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Best brush cherry recipe?
« on: October 22, 2020, 02:26:11 PM »
Have access to a big hedge, was just going to make jam but curious if there are other good uses for it.

Curious what the ruby glow fruit is like, didn't know if having a frederick to cross pollinate would let it set fruit.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / When to repot jaboticaba?
« on: October 17, 2020, 12:27:54 PM »
I've had this Grimal seedling in this pot the last few years. It has grown and I'm wondering how big it should get before I repot it.

And vice-versa. Figuring out where I would retire and start a farm if I ever hit the lottery :)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / How close can you plant a mango to a house?

I have heard the roots are invasive, don't want to damage foundation.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / How do you prepare paw paw fruit?
« on: September 04, 2020, 12:36:58 AM »
Finally tried one, it was OK - sweet banana with a hint of cherimoya, and zero acidity. I found myself wishing I was eating a cherimoya instead or something with better acid balance - does it go well with lime juice? Some other preparation? Are there cultivars with acidity?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Anyone growing Eupomatia laurina (Bolwarra)?
« on: September 01, 2020, 02:55:55 PM »
Was curious how it tastes, Wikipedia says good but I know people here have mixed opinion on the Australian native fruits

Was curious if that was dry enough or if it still gets too much rainfall.
