Tropical Fruit Discussion / Theobroma Bicolor pollination
« on: May 09, 2022, 04:40:18 PM »
Aloha, I couldn't find much information on theobroma bicolor and whether or not it is self pollinating. I currently have one seedling ready to plant and wanted to ask if it will cross pollinate with other theobroma species nearby or if I should grab another seedling and plant in a pair? There are 3 cacao trees in the vicinity I want to plant. Mahalo

Aloha, as the title is hinting, im looking for tropical fruits with edible nut(raw) and tropical nut trees. Im familiar with macadamia nuts, malabar chestnuts, cashew, pulasan and caimito. What else is out there? Ive heard of java almond, is it tasty? Im relatively low elevation and cant grow tropic adapted temperate trees like apricot. Mahalo

Thought it would be fun to share some pics of some of the trees around my property. I live on the east side of the big island Hawaii on 2 acres. 2nd acre is only recently cleared and not planted out. Ive been here for about 3 years.

This is my gorgeous emperor lychee. In ground 1.5 years, 4ish feet tall

This is my ma'afala breadfruit. In ground around 2 years. 10ish feet tall after topping

Here is my unnamed chocolate sapote. In ground 2ish years, stands about 3.5feet after topping this year. Has first flowers on it currently

This is my first soursop tree. In ground almost 2.5 years and produces amazing fruits in winter. Stands about 12 feet at tallest branch. Has been topped

My black gold jackfruit tree!! In ground around 2.5 years and producing delicious fruits. Harvested my first ripe one about a month and half ago. It was ugly, black exterior, about 40lbs, and incredibly delicious!! It was also my wife amd my first real experience with fresh jackfruit. I started 4 seedlings from it and also have a chempadek seedling in ground and a dwarf pink ziman jackfruit planted. Looking forward to the next round of fruits! More to come...
