Citrus General Discussion / Re: ? Summer ripening mandarins

I think I will need to add more grafts of the King Tangor on my trees for next year.

Here's the photos of what citrus is ripening (or still hanging ripe) on my trees now:

USPS- Priority Mail package I received was damaged, box broken in half when it was delivered at my door step.

Robert, my photo of the ws above is the Cuccio (from Jonah scionwood). It had many large fruits on my grafts, taste was sweet. This variety seems to be very productive here in SoCal.

Ok, thank you for this info, I do have the VI-235 grafted on my trees. Just don't have any fruits on the new grafts yet. If it's larger than the Murcott fruit and ripens later that would be good for me to have more citrus to eat during summer.

I took some photos of my Murcott (from FL, VI-147) and Valencia today, will post soon. I also have Oroblanco fruits that are ripe and hanging on the tree. I have Melogold which is supposed to be similar to the Oroblanco from UCR but Melogold ripens earlier and hold for only 3 months (Dec-Feb).

Your choice to pay the high price or not. Doesn't mean he is a scammer.

I agree with above comments. Kevin is honest and has great fruit trees with fair pricing.

I have purchased 4 different guava plants from him. His price is on the mid-high side, but the plants are not the common ones you find at the box stores. One plant died, my fault, but I did get a fruit on one tree and it was a very nice fruit, small since it was first fruit but looked good, red flesh. I hope it fruits again so I can taste a normal size fruit on the tree. His seedless guava does have the round leaves which seems to be one distinguishing characteristic that matches description of this variety. I don't think he is a scan either.

I also have a large/old gold nugget tree which finishes with ripe fruit about now. My gold nugget tastes good til the end (mid-June).

But there is another mandarin that hangs longer, it's a murcott mandarin. I have two versions of the murcott tree which has different fruits/tastes. The ones that hang on the tree ripe until July is the murcott (honey, from FL) with super thin, smooth skin, has many seeds, and is very sweet. When you compare the taste of the fruits in May-June with gold nugget the murcott is much sweeter and juicier. I'll pick a few ripe fruits tomorrow and post it so you can see what the murcott fruit looks like. Of all my mandarins, it is the only one that is still ripening now (March-July?). The fruit skin is so thin and tightly adheres on the flesh, so it is not as easy to peel but it does still peel away from the flesh sacks. This murcott variety closely matches the UCR CCPP VI-147. My other murcott (VI-462) fruits are different. It has very few seeds, peels easily, but doesn't hold until June. The VI-462 ripens from Jan-Apr/May. It tastes more watery and not as sweet as the VI-147.

Yes, I agree, I have four varieties of Valencia orange and they do stay ripe and hang on the tree during summer. They are good for juicing, messy if you try to peel and eat it, very juicy. If I had to choose between the murcott and valencia orange, I would pick the valencia orange since it has less seeds, fruits are larger, so you get more to eat.

Yup, I did 10 and only 3 survived after 1 year. Lots of work to get them to grow after it is removed from the mother tree.

Wow, your air layers look great. I wish my air layers turned out like that. Maybe next year I will improve on my skills.

My white sapote fruits ripened in Sept-October but you should be able to tell when they are ripe by just softly squeezing the fruit. If it gives then pick it and let it finish ripening on the counter. I had some green fruits that were large, picked them and just let it sit on the counter for 2-3 days until it got a little soft, tastes great even if the skin is still green color.

Here's a ripe green fruit (1.2 lbs) that dropped from the tree (9/11/21)

I have volkamer rootstock (large tree now) and it doesn't look that much like yours. I will need to take a few photos of the leaves to compare.

I have a macrophylla rootstock on my lemon tree and the new growth looks similar to yours.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Anyone tried Ed's Delight loquats?
« on: June 21, 2022, 10:11:40 AM »
I tasted Chrismas and Angelino/Argelino but my Ed's Delight did not have any fruits this year (grafted branch). Chrismas tastes very good, fruit size was medium, sweetness of 15 brix.

Here's the number of members who have their anniversary on June 2019, 2020, 2021.

Kevin, need to be in month of June 2019, but if no one post for June by the last day of June, then I will say the closest date to June 1st will get it. That will be for all three years (1st yr, 2nd yr, and 3rd year) so we will have 3 winners if no one registered on June.

I have a P. incarnata vine in my yard if you want to buy some cuttings. They seem to root from cutting, the vine grows fast and big. You should be able to buy other varieties from Kevin Jones, I got mine from him already rooted, he has many varieties.

I have a multi-grafted tree on Lisbon lemon tree (old big one, 30yrs) since I did not have many large citrus trees when I started to graft new varieties from CCPP budwood. So,my lemon tree has about 30+ varieties on it and the fruit seems to taste good. Maybe it does affect the taste of sumo since the other shiranui grafts on my lime tree, grapefruit tree, Gold Nugget, and pomelo trees seems to taste sweeter than the sumo on my large lemon tree. It doesn't seem to change the sweetness on the Xie Shan, Ponkan, and New Zealand lemon. Maybe next season I should be able to tell if the sumo on the lemon tree is still not as sweet as the other rootstock.
