Eye wall went over home in PSL. Was 76mph registered speed at multiple weather points within a mile of home for at least 30mins. No visible damage to home and just some trees with lost leaves.

Anyone will have budwood for yangmei in Feb-April? I would be interested in trades or buy.

ooof those Asiminia triloba numbers are off the charts- wonder if it was true fruit pulp or a concoction of the seeds and pulp

Also FTR- I still eat annona- and before I was more knowledgeable about the seeds ate a lot of pawpaw seeds from difficult to clean fruit- wicked stomach ache after that lasted a few days that was enough to have me never eating a seed again-

Also worth noting in Guadeloupe they blend the fruit (seeds and all) into the beverage that is most often consumed, on top of the tea leaf consumption.

I think you may be onto something with Soursop numbers, it may be skewed because the typical preparation is juice.

Reed has a dwarf bushy growth habit. I would plant Reed.

Thanks for pointing out he has, Annona dioica. I have a mature plant in the ground that flowers, however it has never set fruit. I believe it needs cross pollination with another plant.

Great plant which thrives on neglect it does well in Florida zone 10a.

Psidium robustum tree I have growing is close to 4 years old. It is about 2ft tall 3.5ft diameter with a weeping ground hugging growth habit. It is now fruiting.

I can see it being trainable to stay within a 5ft diameter by 4ft tall.

There is a fruiting indoor cacao at longwood gardens near Philadelphia.

I don't have any plants, cuttings, or seeds right now. Check back with me in late November, I may take some cuttings then.

I believe someone was selling cuttings not too long ago here. Maybe do a search and contact the seller?

I messaged a seller on here who had seedlings a while back but didn't find anything regarding cuttings on the forum.

I read that it is possible to propagate from cuttings but haven't found a % success rate.

Yes cuttings work well, it's decent like 30% or better if conditions are good and quality cuttings. I sold cuttings in the past, I have a self fertile fruiting tree.

Are you still distributing these nullzero?

I think I managed to get 5 from Bush2Beach and a few more from around here

Not really atm, I have to rebuild my collection of these. I lost a lot of Opuntia after few moves and a flood in FL that rotted some of my remaining plants. Luckily I spread out the genetics, so I was able to regain them :).

This is a picture of the plant the yellow fruits came from.

Yes that is Visalia Yellow, great looking plant. You can trim off the side pads to get more of a columnar habit, the original collected plant was going up about 7ft in a columnar shape (it seemed like it was being maintained by the yard workers).

Probably go a Eugenia pyriformis (sweet selection) or Mexican garcinia.

Bellamy if you can check your message about the correct address, thanks!

When will these hybrids be available to buy?

I only have 1 plant its self fruitful.

Physalis peruviana and other Physalis sp. of course Tomatoes as well. Loquats are good as well.

I really like your recommendation for Physalis. I actually just bought some seeds for the New Hannover Ground Cherry from Baker Creek. I hear that they are really good.

I tried a bunch of strains in the past. I found the Peaceseeds, Physalis peruviana Giant Groundcherry to be one of the best so far. I have 3 plants in a 7 gal fabric and they produce all year round cherry size sweet and sour fruits.

Annona glabra for compatible Annonas. Some strains of Annona glabra grow in flooded brackish water.
