Hi, i take this opportunity to remind you of my order. The pacuri seeds must have already sprouted. In that case, you send me little seedlings rather than seeds of pacuri.

i have never had fruit from any passiflora, but here says P. incarnata IS self fertile (as long as there are insects).

i profoundly respect the Nitraria Schoberi and the person who takes good care of it.
Can you please post some photos of the fruit, whole fruit, fruit cut in halves, and seeds alone, next to a measure tape or ruler (so we know the exact size)?

Are those aerial roots coming from the tree, or unassociated vines? If aerial roots and from the leaves it looks like sort of fig there are many.
They seem to be aerial roots. The fruit too looks like a tropical fig (the leaf arrangement reminded me of Pouteria, but the fruit looks more like of a tropical fig).
I vote for it being a tropical fig tree native to SE Asia or Australia. It may be even a type of fig tree called balete  Beware, the balete tree is believed to be haunted!

Picture with one of my 2 Nitraria Schoberi flowering in a verry small ,2 litter( half a gallon) pot.
The soil it pure yellow clay.Nothing can grow in it except Nitraria.No fertiliser addeď and i didnt added salt ( NaCl).
I m jealous for this plant! Beautiful flowers too, and the leaves look like eatable. No wonder there is a relative Australian plant. There is native Australian portulaca too, similar to the European one.
Can you send me some Nitraria Schoberi seeds?

Passiflora incarnata grows even in Russia. In our country it has the name "Northern Passionfruit". I never heard that the roots need limited space. It grows in the ground in a greenhouse and bears fruit well.
Thank you. Your photo confused me a little because it shows the leaf 3-lobed, while Kevin Jones' photo shows the leaf 5-lobed.

i got the message: it is only Passiflora incarnata that has to be in a limited space in order to produce fruit. Other Passifloras do better with plenty of space for their roots.
Passiflora incarnata is different in other ways too: it comes from North America and it is more winter hardy.
If it is not a trouble, can you put some photos of Passiflora incarnata leaves, and leaves of any kind called "banana passionfruit" here?
Thank you all.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / space for Passiflora roots
« on: May 27, 2020, 07:47:11 AM »
It is well known that Passiflora incarnata needs limited space for its roots in order to bloom and fruit. If it has ample space, the plant will keep growing but not produce flowers and fruit.
So i wish to know about other Passifloras, should they also have LIMITED space for their roots (e.g. in a pot), or will they produce fruit if they have AMPLE space in the ground for their roots?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / fig???
« on: May 27, 2020, 06:27:14 AM »
i m not a specialist, but it may be a tropical fig relative. If you can get your hands on a fruit, check if it has a pulp with small seeds like a fig or even a smell resembling a fig. The leaves surely resemble a tropical fig, but their fan arrangement may point to something different.

The supermarket has started again bringing passiflora edulis and ligularis fruits. You can go and find there some i just went and bought some fruits, as you know each fruit has 200+ seeds so plenty for testing.
Thank you, but in my town i have never seen P. ligularis in the market. Also, i m interested in plants, not in seeds.

I have grafted plants. Fruiting this season. With seeds you need to wait 2 to 3 years in our climate.
i wish i have Passiflora edulis plants and Passiflora incarnata plants. (Also interested for hardy papaya and gomera 1 mango). If you can send me   please write to me. Thank you.
For P. incarnata, they say it must be planted in a limiting container to grow fruit. What about P. ligularis, will it grow fruit if grown in more open space?

this will probably survive here until November when the temperature starts to go below +8 C, so i cannot grow it. If you have gomera 1 mango, papaya (vasconcelea) pubescens scions, Passiflora incarnata or ligularis scions, or Casimiroa edulis self fertile plant, please let me know. Thank you.

Shipping is slower these days I would think scions would be risky. Cuttings wrapped in
damp paper towels might work. PM me and tell me what country you are from and what
you are interested in. There are 51 countries that are not accepting packages now.
Hi, i write here instead of pm so as to keep the post high on the list. I m in Greece, interested for one or a few Casimiroa scions any variety as long as they are self fertile and make relatively big fruit.

May we have some photos of the wild fruit you found and of what sprouted from them, especially fruits that grew from the seeds you found?

excuse me, did you mention where do you send scions to? America only? Rest of the world?

Hi, i saw your new list. How are the pacuri seeds? previously you said they were starting to sprout; so now, are they already sprouting? Will they be able to travel?

i saw this post but i know Entada is hard to grow, obviously it needs scarification, otherwise it will float in the ocean for 100 years until it finds land and gets naturally scarified.
A few years ago i bought some Entada raetii seeds and scratched them on rough concrete, then put them in water, then they absorbed water and started to grow a root, but when that root became less than a centimetre, the seed started getting rotten. This happened three times if i remember well.
Any tips to grow it successfully?
Then, is the pod or seed edible?
Still i wonder if it needs huge space for its roots and for its liana. Has anyone grown it in a pot? Will it smother a tall tree if planted next to it?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Carissa macrocarpa flower to fruit?
« on: May 11, 2020, 06:54:15 AM »
Yes, it is in a place with full sun. There is basil nearby, but the basil does not scare all insects away. Last year the Carissa produced lots of flowers, but they did not turn into fruit. I thought they needed cross pollination, so i added two plants from another supplier, the two new plants did not yet flower, but i think i see buds. You are the second person here that says one only plant can produce fruit.

Someone here said s/he got fruit from Carissa macrocarpa only one plant. If so, why mine produced flowers but no fruit last year?
Btw still waiting your own assessment of the fruit.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Carissa macrocarpa flower to fruit?
« on: May 10, 2020, 05:07:04 PM »
H, i have never tasted Carissa macrocarpa, reading another thread i got the impression that i may be disappointed as people do not seem to like it. Anyway, last year i had one Carissa macrocarpa, it made plenty of scented flowers, but no fruit; why so? If i have 2 or 3 plants next to each other, will they pollinate each other so that all of them produce fruit? And by the way, your own opinion about its worth as fruit?

Please wait as necessary. A professional would never send early but rotten. Better later send seeds (and the scions) but in good condition.

Hi! i have not seen information on how old they should be from seed to show flowers and fruit. What do you know about that?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / fertility of papaya-pubescens-serena?
« on: May 04, 2020, 11:32:12 AM »
Hi! Has anyone grown this type of papaya: I have bought 4 seedlings of it, and only one is alive and growing. One was received broken; the other two withered and dried up for no known reason. I have given them plenty of water, in a big container each, which is cut around the bottom for draining. I might be satisfied with only one, but will one of this variety produce fruit? What are the chances?

I try to recall, I believe I also shaved some of the hard seed coat with sandpaper. The computer or ontop of fridge is for low constant heat source.
Stenocereus queretaroensis is definately worth growing for fruit.

Now i know better than before. Your seedling in that big pot is so beautiful! And well cared for. I think they are volcanic stones that cover the soil.
