Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 2023 Mango Season
« on: January 27, 2023, 05:16:21 PM »
It looks like it's going to be a good year.  I've got confirmed bloom on Banganpalli, Jehangir, Kesar, Jumbo Kesar, Julie, Dot, East Indian, Janardhan Pasand, USDA Himsagar, Neelam, Mahmood Vikarabad, #11, and Alumpur Baneshan.   I'm spraying the heck out of them this year cuz I'm tired of losing fruit to powdery mildew attacks.  Waiting for bloom on Borsha, Malda, Sindhri, Manohar, Sonpari, Panchadarakalasa, Dashiri and Royal Special.

Probably most interesting collection of mango trees, why did you decide on these varieties?

Thanks,

Joe

Digi,

Collection is looking amazing, good to hear from you. The thin leaves one looks like salicifolia to me 🤷‍♂️

Iím glad you are growing the porcelia too thatís on my list, but I always seem to miss the seeds when they are around.

Happy new year,

Joe

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Salak first flowers, palm city FL
« on: January 01, 2023, 09:21:20 PM »



Wanted to add this photo I found in a research paper that may be helpful for those like myself who are less familiar growing salak outside of its native region. Based on the photo Iím am convinced my salak is producing male flowers due to lack of the ďhairsĒ that seem characteristic of female flowers.

Really cool idea, please update the forum on any success or failure on this 👍

Not sure exactly here in palm city, so preoccupied with Christmas that today was first day I walked my yard, itís pretty clear that soursops ( grafted and seedlings) got whipped, immediate full brown leaves do not pass go, while also the few Annona urbaniana that I have got whipped too (this is a Caribbean origin I think so probably why and I donít know many growing this one for reference to experiencing brief freezes/near freezing). Itís possible others in my yard will have a delayed browning, but so far the salaks seem bullet proof.

The painter isnít mushy, it has a nice firmness resembling more cherimoya than itís part reticulata parent, there is a lot of berry flavor in the fruit reminds me of strawberries and cream which I have never experienced in the cherimoyas Iíve eaten which are good but really apples/oranges in that comparison. Maybe it doesnít perform well in Cali? Thatís my only possible shread of explanation to brads comment 🤷‍♂️

To add it was formally know as cherilata whereas itís now called ďpainter.Ē The fruit is exceptional, out of the ones I growÖdream, geffner, Lisa, na dai sugar apple, Fernandez reticulataÖ the painter is my favorite but preferences will vary.

Some pics from a fruit I picked off my tree this year, just fyi this is painter scions I grafted to soursop:

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Grafting wax jambu help
« on: November 24, 2022, 12:18:21 PM »
Hey Patrick,

Thanks for your response, I only do cleft graft cuts but my question is scion prep and do you bag in humidity dome with a few trimmed leaves or take all leaves of scion and wrap entire scion?

Hereís a pic of the seedling, it was originally entirely albino but then acquired some chlorophyll making it a neon green vs the other seedlings which are Forrest green. Love the color and foliage and I want to see this fruit out someday.




Thanks
Joe

Thanks for those leaf pics kaz, they look pretty similar to my in ground seedlings ďdorado yellowĒ and ďpiste redĒ which are going on 3-4 years now I think, hoping to see first flowers this spring🤞

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Grafting wax jambu help
« on: November 24, 2022, 07:59:11 AM »
I have a rare seedling wax jambu that I want to clone as Iím somewhat worried it could die unexpectedly, and I want to hedge that risk. Itís about two feet tall and growing as a single leader not branching. Iím thinking I could tip prune it to induce branching and then graft the cutting. So then the question:

Does anyone have experience grafting wax jambu and what methods did you employ?


Thanks,

Joe

Hey Kaz,

Are there any pics of the fruit from these trees? Also if you could post some pics of the leaves off your meridia tree I would appreciate seeing them.

Give Dís Fruit trees a call down near homestead, saw his in ground tree in person, it is truly truly a dwarf tree, thing was maybe up to my chest growing like a bush with fruit on it, bought three scions from him and got one to take! 👍 Iíve never seen a mamey grow like that, been to lara farms before and seen all the standard ones at fruit and spice park and they are large trees, really incredible to see a mamey bush with fruit.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Salak first flowers, palm city FL
« on: November 10, 2022, 10:06:41 AM »
Went out today to assess yard post storm Nicole, noticed one of my salaks is flowering. Seems of all the things this took a beating as the long fronds catch the wind while shallow weak rootsÖ if planting out where high winds are a concern place in protected area 👍

Wondering if these are male or female flowers or still too soon to tell?






Hereís a great link on different types: https://www.thesnakefruit.com/blog/snake-fruit/what-is-salak-bali/

Originally bought these seeds from Han sun as ďhoney salakĒ and have a few growing out in my yard now, hoping to try this fruit someday and todays news reignites the hope!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Neighbor pesticide spray
« on: October 19, 2022, 12:28:27 AM »
Best I can think of is contact company and and ask to read up on the products they are using if they even know. Also ask your neighbor how long they plan to use the service as typically mosquitos are somewhat seasonal. You may not have to deal with this long term if they donít see a benefit or are unhappy with service.

Once I was walking in my yard inspecting my super Julie mango tree, and I and the tree were heavily misted by a worker on my neighbors roof with a mask on that looked like he was power washing the roof shingles. When he was done I walked up and said hey what did you spray on that roof because it smells strongly and you indirectly sprayed me and my tree. He said it was some antifungal compound, and ďnot to worry because he uses it all the time and gets exposed and is fineĒ meanwhile he was wearing facial protection. He obviously didnít know the chemicals so I called the company. Turns out the owner of the company picked up and he had no idea either, turns out he bought the company from previous owner which invented the chemical concoction. Literally no one knew what was being sprayed, the poor worker could have long term health ramifications, and because of his managers carelessness and lack of oversight in a small franchise/business.
