I have about 30 Red Hybrid Jaboticaba plants in 1g to 3g size; 1yr to 3yr old from seed.  I am moving in 4 weeks and need to sell everything. 

1g plants are $5
3g plants are $20
I also have one 15g plant that is already fruiting size. I can sell for $400 OBO.  It is actually a Red Hybrid grafted with Grimal, so one main part of the trunk is Red Hybrid, another main trunk is Grimal.

I am in Titusville, FL.  PM me and we can go from there.  I would love to give someone an awesome deal if they want to buy everything at once.

I hear pitangatuba likes full sun and apparently organic fertilizer.  Other than that, what are optimal cultural requirements as to:

Potting medium
Water
Any other nutritional needs?

I've had one for about 7 months now and it appears to be very slow growing so far.

This is my second round germinating red jaboticaba seeds so I'll share my experience with the first vs. second.

First time
Time of year: Dec-Jan 2015
Germinated indoors with light from South and West facing windows
Temps: 75 - 80F range
First plant emerged after only 3 weeks from sowing seeds
Germination success: almost 100%
Unfortunately, I exposed most of my seedlings to too much direct sun outdoors after they came up and they were killed.  I still have 6 that made it after I moved them to a location under trees with filtered light.

Second time
Time of year: April-June 2016
Germinated outdoors under trees with filtered light
Temps: 65 - 95F range (now range is more like 75 - 95F)
First plant emerged after 6 weeks and only 2 plants have emerged so far
Germination success: only about 5% so far
I think there are a number of factors that have hindered germination this time:

higher degree of fluctuation in temperatures
higher overall temperatures
pots have been inundated; flooded with water on occasions
more direct and strong light may be detrimental even though they are under oak trees

The first time around, I used regular miracle grow potting mix and had good success.
The second time around, I mixed more vermiculite in with the potting mix.  Not sure what effect that had, if any, based on the other factors involved.

Also, observations with the 6 seedlings that survived from the first round:
I have had them in filtered light under trees for a few months and they are doing ok, but growing really slowly.  Recently, they all began losing all their leaves.  The leaf tips turned brown and dry, then leaves fell off.  4 of the plants got new leaves that look very healthy while 2 plants are completely bare and the tiny stems look dead, although I am waiting to see if they put out new leaves. 

Not sure if this kind of leaf drop is normal with small seedlings or not.  I'm also interested in what kind of techniques others use with seedlings once they have sprouted to keep them going healthy and develop past the stage of being tiny plants.  They seem very sensitive to too much heat and sun.  They seemed to grow much better indoors during the winter than they are doing outdoors now.  Lower (and more constant) temps the first time around were definitely conducive to better germination.  I would say a more constant temp of about 80F during germination and even initial growth for small plants is optimal.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Historical weather info
« on: January 12, 2016, 01:53:41 PM »
The Weather Channel online used to have a way to see what the highs/lows were for every day in the past month or two.  I don't see that feature anymore.

Is there another site that gives this ability to see on a calendar view what the observed highs/lows were in the past for a given area?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Warm winter in 9b Florida with pics
« on: January 08, 2016, 10:23:51 AM »
Generally, this has been a very warm winter - the warmest I can remember so far in Central Florida - knock on wood!

I've still got starfruit hanging on the tree in January, which is very unusual.  Typically, we have a freeze by now and all the leaves and fruit are gone.  This winter, I don't think the temps have dipped below 45F or so at my house.  I'm also on the south side of a lake, so it's definitely a microclimate.

Here are some pics:


The dwarf Hawaiian carambola is nice, not as sweet as some of the others, but a mild sweetness, somewhat pearlike.  The fruit doesn't turn orange when ripe, rather a washed out yellow.



Praying hands bananas are always interesting and tasty.



Ice Cream bananas - this is the largest bunch I think I have ever got: 200 bananas!  This is the different form of "ice cream" (for all you banana snobs).  Unlike the "true Blue Java" the fruit does not turn as blue.  But, it is by far the most productive of all banana varieties I have grown over the past 10 years in Central Florida.  Good cold tolerance, heavy production, very vigorous.

 

Red hybrid jaboticaba and coronata flushing out with new growth.



Brogdon avocado in 5g pot flowering.  I just started growing this.  Is it normal for Brogdon to flower at this time of year???



Grumichama about 3.5ft high in a pot.  It was suffering from some sort of deficiency (as you can see with the older growth).  Not sure if it needs more acidic soil, more nitrogen, or what.  Gave it "Bougain" bougainvillea fertilizer a few months ago, which seems to help based on what I see on the new growth.



Sabara jabo about 5.5ft in a 25g pot.  I bought this thing in a 3g about 1.5 years ago and it has grown quite a bit for a "slow growing jabo"!



Holding area for all kinds of stuff on the south side of the house.



My favorite spot in the backyard...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Protecting seeds from cold during shipping
« on: December 27, 2015, 04:53:09 PM »
I may be shipping some jaboticaba seeds from USA to Russia during winter.  What is the best way to pack them to keep them from getting damaged by sub-freezing temperatures?  More detail the better... thanks.

17
***1/3/16  I do not have any seeds left at this point.  I will update this post if/when I have more seeds. thanks***

Hi, I've got 50-100 fresh Red Hybrid Jaboticaba seeds that I could ship from Florida within the US or outside if the cost isn't too prohibitive.  Send me a message if you're interested.  I could sell or trade - not interested in making a bunch of money - I just have a surplus of seeds!   They tend to germinate and sprout in 3-6 weeks under good conditions.  Nate

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Uses for Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides)
« on: December 14, 2015, 07:33:43 PM »
In Florida, Spanish Moss is abundant and can be found hanging from oaks and other trees or can be harvested from the ground.  I've used it as a soil covering or "mulch" for potted plants, which seems to work pretty well.  I don't treat it in any way, just use it from the ground once it falls off oaks in my yard.

I've seen others (like Adam) use it as mulch for in-ground plants or as an initial covering for plants in the winter.

Has anyone else found other uses for Spanish Moss in the garden?

19
I'm germinating about 80 red jaboticaba seeds in 4" peat pots in cardboard boxes with plexiglass covering the boxes to retain humidity.  They are in an outdoor location that gets filtered sunlight, but mostly shade during the day.  Outside temps average 75-80F during the day and 60-65F at night (but will drop lower as the winter goes on).  Not sure what the temps are in the boxes at this point.  I just planted the seeds a couple days ago, but I'm wondering if it would be better to move them inside to germinate.  The inside temp will be more constant and range between 70-80F all the time. 

What do you think?
