Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Cherimoya Scion Sale
« on: Today at 05:15:11 PM »
The Cherimoya treeís are ready to cut scion and ship next week.
Please pm me with what youíd like.

If your purchase 20 scion, I will include rare fruits with your order.

What is your current list and prices?

Here is an informative article from Australia.  In the longest section under questions at the end, the nursery says they "have no trouble growing them from cuttings" and elsewhere they mention some trees will be both male and female.


Thanks for sharing that article, Janet!

I have recently heard that the growers in China do not plant males, which is also confirmed in this article.

This seems like a Monopoly card of "bank error in your favor". great looking tree

Ha yes! Iím so happy that means I have added a new variety to the collection.

I had a biqi listed on eBay but just cancelled and relisted because I found out there was a mix up and what I have is actually a LATE BIQI which has never been offered before.

Not to be confused with the Biqi that is going around

The tree is grafted, established and of nice size.

LATE BIQI variety info:
This is a late-maturing variety selected from biqi from the Yangmei Research Institute of Yuyao City and the Horticulture Institute of Zhejiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences. It was named by Mr. Wu Gengmin, a famous expert at Zhejiang Agricultural University. The trees are strong, the branches and leaves are lush, the crown is round-headed, the leaves are large, 9.3 cm long, 2.7 cm wide, and the leaves are thick green. The fruit surface is purple-black, rich in luster, shiny and beautiful. Strong sweetness, good taste, dense flesh, good storage and transportation. The average weight of single fruit is 13 grams, soluble solids is 13.9%, and 95.6% flesh. It is excellent quality for fresh eating and processing. It has great yield with consistent quality. Ripens at the end of June and the beginning of July, which can extend the harvest season with biqi. It has strong drought tolerance and can be planted in the mountains at higher altitudes to take full advantage of its late maturing. It is one of the best varieties for fresh eating and processing. It is resistant to high temperatures and droughts . The yield of 6-year-old trees can reach 36 kg, and the yield is high and stable.

Thanks for your support!

Nice. Big bonus is whoever wins doesn't have to revive it at all.

HUGE bonus. I lost over 20 trees from one of the previous group buys. Guess what I have to show for all that money and time? 2 male trees.

Ooof, im in danger

I have to mention that I rooted most of them and they nearly all started looking great with leaves, but my entire plan was derailed once I realized that the trees were infected with RKN. The results may have been different if I was able to care for the trees as intended.

Has anyone been following this Yangmei auction on ebay? Current bid is $3,000 is it because of the variety, hype, or demand? maybe all of the above. Im shocked, glad I got in on this group order.
That is my listing. This variety is a different variety than any of the other one going around. It is also an established tree. There is a huge benefit of buying an established tree vs trying to grow one form bare root. I was part of the last group order and got something like 23 trees. Guess what I have to show for those... 2 male trees infected with RKN.

Myrica rubra is an obligate N fixer and uses a species Frankia bacteria to create its own N inside on nodules in their roots, Iím not sure that it is wise to remove all root nodules because it would prevent the plants from producing their own nitrogen. The lose of their symbiotic bacteria might slow down the trees growth. Iím sure mixing in a microrhyzel  mix might help the plants but removing all the nitrogen nodules might be hard on the plant. Here is an article about their nodule formation but there are a few articles about it

Hey Murraystevena2,

I checked the galls and they are not Frankia Actinomycetes. This article discusses the nodule formation of Frankia and the cascade of gene expression post infection.

I dissected a few nodules to see if I can find any Iron like reddish brown coloration and the galls are cream colored or whitish like your typical root. The morphology of these galls are identical to the other group buy where the roots were more heavily infested.

The roots on these trees have this morphology

Frankia can have different morphologies but they would typically look something like this



Oh no, were trees infected with RKN in this order also?!

Hey RevivalRoots. I'm not sure if you're a native English speaker but your description is a little strange for this plant. "Prince Anhai turns into a soft meat column of bayberry" sounds quite strange! "The meat is fine and soft, the juice is large, the sweet acid is moderate, the nucleus is small, and the edible rate is more than 95%."

Let me help you out. Replace "meat" with flesh.

"Prince Anhai turns into a soft meat column of bayberry" should be "Prince Anhai is a soft fleshed variety bayberry".

"The meat is fine and soft, the juice is large, the sweet acid is moderate, the nucleus is small, and the edible rate is more than 95%." should be " the texture of the fruit is soft and juicy. It is small seeded and has a 9 to1 flesh to seed ratio."

Thatís great, thanks you! I only speak English lol. This is from a Chinese site and I literally just used the translate feature on the phone. I appreciate the translation help!

Iíve listed this newly introduced variety on EBay.

Variety info (translated):
Soft shredded bayberry
Prince Anhai has soft flesh. It is native to Longhai, in Fujian Province. The leaves are large, the old leaves grow more than the new leaves, the edges are obviously toothed, the fruit is round and spherical, and the fruit is correct. The average weight of the single fruit is 15 grams. The surface of the fruit is purple-red to purple-black. The flesh is dull and long. There is a longitudinal or not obvious gully on both sides. The stem has a turquoise tumor-like protuberance. The texture is soft, sweet, and very juicy with some acidity. The seed is small, with very high flesh to seed ratio.
Fruit is of excellent quality, top tier. Harvest is from mid-May to late May.

There's on ebay one yangmaie for $3k.

Good luck to the winner.  I won't pay $3000 for it.  Jason is selling it for $70.

Sure, but don't forget that shipping cost more than the plant and then there is the risk of it not making it. People have reasons for not going that route.

RevivalRoots, is your ebay auction for the "GRAFTED ** YANGMEI ** BLACK RUILIN"  ?

The bid is ridiculously high now, way out of my reach.

It is my tree. I don't blame you. It's a mortgage payment.

Geez! Last I looked today that was at $500! Is the fruit that good?

I've been lucky enough to try fresh yangmei and it's one of my top favorite tasting fruits so far. It tasted like fruit punch. I can't wait to try more.

I can only imagine what my fiancee would do to me if I spent 3K+ on a tree lol.

Revivalroots- if that is your tree, that is awesome.
Hot yangmei market, make that moolah $$$  8)

Yes that is my listing! I had no idea it'd go that nuts, but then again, a variegated escarlate went for 3650...

The last 2 sold for over $700 + shipping, and were smaller trees... am I wrong for following the market prices? The winner can take this and auction it, make a bunch of profit or keep for their collections. If the spots don't fill I will post for auction, I just figured people may appreciate a much cheaper option to obtain one of these trees

Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
