Tropical Fruit Discussion / Anybody know aquagem on ebay?
« on: December 03, 2022, 05:02:03 PM »
Aquagem offers some rare stuff but just wondering if some is legit. Iíve bought something they called dominican red star fruit which is growing good but to soon to tell if it came true to seed. Also bought a dwarf kwai muk which I still swear is a jackfruit seedling but they said they definitely sent me the right tree

Tropical Fruit Discussion / myrceugenia glaucescens info?
« on: October 26, 2022, 11:57:38 AM »
I wasnít familiar with Myrceugenias until recently. Iíve heard itís closely related to Luma Apiculata which Iíve been eating different varieties this season. I visited Wanderlust nursery and found he had some Myrceugenias in his collection and I had no idea they were hardy enough for Washington. Is myrceugenia glaucescens hardy enough to CA zone 9b? I had them in my greenhouse but it would be great if I could leave them outside. Also any info on fruit would be great

Interested in this Passiflora arborea that grows into a tree? Any info on fruit taste?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Coming to Florida this Thursday 23rd-26th
« on: June 22, 2022, 02:23:42 AM »
Hello Iím visiting for the first time to Miami/homestead to visit fruit and spice park. Was wondering if thereís any other places to try fruits. Would be cool to try some mango varieties. Also if anybody wants to show off their garden I would love to visit that too. More tropical than my home so Iíd love to see what you guys are growing. Also looking to buy plants

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Help on Plinia I.D ?
« on: May 05, 2022, 02:09:08 PM »
I got these cuttings from a local guy who grew it from seed. It makes red fruit and he thought it was red hybrid but Iím thinking itís maybe a phitrantha? Big leafs that are fuzzy underneath and also the newer growth of stems is fuzzy. He says he thinks his Sabara fruit taste better.

They trimmed the Jaboticaba at prusch Park and I scavenged more cuttings then I have room to graft. Does anybody want to trade me something for some? Otherwise Iím just going to try to root the rest of them which isnít likely to work. All cuttings are pencil thickness or bigger. Open to all offers

I have some large Sabaras that are not yet fruiting. Maybe 1 or 2 more years. I would love to graft scarlet scions or any more rare types onto them. Would be very happy to find peluda do mucuri ďdoctors jaboticabaĒ. Itís my birthday tomorrow and I want to buy myself present haha

Iím in Hollywood area and Iím really hoping to find a public fruiting Inga to get a pod so I can eat and grow the seeds. I know of one in San Diego but I donít plan on going that far. If any generous people would gift me a pod I would really appreciate that or Iíd be willing to buy them too. Iíd love to see a mature fruiting tree though

Iím in West Hollywood and was really hoping to find a ice cream bean tree. Iím from San Francisco Bay Area and my ice cream bean tree died this past winter and Iím really hoping to try the fruit and grow new trees from the seeds. I heard thereís one at sea world San Diego but that is too far

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Ilama in Oaxaca Mexico?
« on: January 30, 2022, 12:46:44 AM »
Does Ilama grow in Oaxaca? I have one that was sold as Oaxaca variety. I checked the weather and it seems to get about as cold as my location around 30F so it gives me hope to possibly grow. Iím sure the cold isnít as many hours as Northern California

I know the fruit has tons of seeds so please spare me some! I will pay or also have things for trade. Somebody please!  :D

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cabinho Grosso Jaboticaba?
« on: August 12, 2021, 01:42:57 PM »
Is Cabinho Grosso the same a scarlet or is it a plinia phitrantha like taiwon tiger?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / No Annona Herzogii discussion?
« on: July 16, 2021, 11:10:10 PM »
I noticed this was only mentioned once. I ordered seeds from IDSeedsFarm on Etsy and came from Isreal . Also ordered Jarilla Chocola which I donít think is mentioned much either. I will post pics if I have any luck with germination

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Are these Ross sapote?
« on: July 11, 2021, 02:36:24 AM »
I ordered these online ďeBayĒ as Ross sapote. They tasted the same as the canistels Iíve ate. Maybe they were not ripened properly? The photos I see only the fruits are more flat than rounded like these. Maybe not the true form? I know Ross sapote is supposed to be sub species of canistel or possibly just a variety?

I know both are not the best but Iíd like to hear any reports of anybody tasting a decent variety? And also Iíd like to hear from anybody who has grown both what seems hardier? Compared to papaya Babaco is not sweet but I still like it. I feel I might still enjoy one of these Annonas

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / WTB Annona Reticulata tree
« on: July 09, 2021, 01:01:39 AM »
So I got sold Annona Reticulata on eBay from Florida seller and Iíve been growing it out thinking that but now I realize itís pond apple :( itís been so long since I bought it I donít know if the seller will respond. Can somebody please make up for it and sell me a nice Reticulata tree

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Annona pollination question
« on: July 08, 2021, 12:30:06 AM »
Can you please explain to me what happens if I put sugar apple pollen in cherimoya flower or vise versa. Is that how Atemoya is made? If I use reticulata pollen is that how you get reticulata and then you have to grow the seedlings out?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pink guava on Feijoa mystery
« on: July 05, 2021, 05:02:51 PM »
So my grandma planted some feijoa trees on the property 50 years ago and Iíve lived here 25 years and only have taken care of it the past 5 years. Did not produce fruit for a very long time or at least I donít remember because squirrels do eat them. But to the point is my grandma and dad both swear it use to produce pink guavas. I never believed these were graft compatible but itís just been a mystery. Could the graft have died off years ago? They are both in Myrtaceae but Iíve heard only similar flower types can be grafted? Is that true?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / WTB mature Kwai Muk tree
« on: July 05, 2021, 12:39:07 PM »
So Iíve been collecting little Kwai muk seedlings to grow out and I have 4 now but they grow so slow! Iíd love to have a least 1 big tree or even a grafted one possibly

Anybody fruiting this? Iím looking forward to updates on peopleís trees

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Eugenia Anthropophaga info?
« on: July 02, 2021, 08:53:06 PM »
So Iíve finally got to the point of collecting so much that Iím buying things that have very little information. I know a lot of you have hit that point haha. I bought this seedling from Bellamytrees. I grow Pitangatubas and those kinda have passion fruit taste like the description of this. So I assumed itís maybe a sub species of Pitangatuba cause the fruit just looks like an elongated one  but the leaf looks very different almost like a jaboticaba.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is this Annona reticulata?
« on: July 01, 2021, 10:08:00 PM »
I got sold this on eBay as Annona retulata but now Iím thinking it looks more like pond Apple? I do remember it looking more like reticulata leaves and after it lost its leaves and grew back they look like this. I grafted a branch of it onto cherimoya seedling and it took.

So I have 4 very old Lilly pilly species in my front yard and as I was watering I thought it would be incredible if I could graft another syzigium species onto them. I also grow the syzigium jambos/cumini that is fruiting in the back yard but Iíd love to be able to graft it also onto the front yard plants. Can somebody tell me what syzigiums are compatible??
