You might as well remove all of the leaves. Those aren't going to come back. It will probably resprout from the trunk. And like was said before, cover it with plastic to keep up humidity and don't water it too much. Keep the soil moist but not heavy and wet.

Looks like my original one from Puerto Rico might be about to flower. At least I assume those are flower buds. My plan is to wait to check the sex of the flowers before snipping them off.

One month update:
Looking like a success. Planning to stick it in the ground next to the other one in the spring.

Oh that's too bad. Did the growth flush fully harden off? I'm just curious if these are compatible long term.

Yes it had a few flush took the winter well and when I removed it in April 2016 it was blooming. I had two maprang graft on this tree that took. The rootstock I believe was ataulfo or Manila

Nice. I'll have to give a few more of these a try.

I'm going in may and was curious if there was any worthwhile places to check out or even just buy fruit?

Can you get a pic of the other side of he graft? I'm curious to see how thick the scion was. I'm assuming the part that is visible is the mango stock by the way the wood looks. I tried this combo years ago but the scions were really thin and failed. I'm wondering if wider scions work better.

jsvand5   how is the pulasan doing now?   did it live?

Still a little sketchy. It dropped all of its leaves within a couple days of arriving but I expected that. It's been pretty much a green stick since then but it has a bud starting to push now. Also has a couple tiny green pinprick sized bumps that I think will end up being new growth. It's in almost full shade and bagged to keep the humidity high. I'm pretty confident it will survive at this point.

After you removed the ring of bark did you scrape the exposed wood as well?

Wow. That is an impressive sight.

Seebabat is supposed to be self fertile.

It is, though you would probably get better production with another male tree in its vicinity.

For now I'll be happy to get it to recover from the bare rooting. My other grafted one is doing well and I have a couple seedlings doing well but this is the first that I have that has been bare rooted. I'm definitely going to baby it for the next couple months. I can probably get some budwood from a male tree in puerto rico next summer but getting the graft to take seems unlikely. So far I have only seen approach grafts on pulasan but I imagine other grafting techniques are  probably used in their native region. I set up a wedge graft on a seedling from the branch that broke in shipping. It seemed to line up well but I'm still doubtful it will succeed.

That's awesome. :D Aren't they dioecious? So are there male and female grafts? Also, can I ask where you purchased it? Do you have it in a humidity tent with air flow? That'll help it bounce back.
Seebabat is supposed to be self fertile. I do have another grafted one from Puerto Rico as well. Not sure of the variety on that one though. I am going to put it in a little mini greenhouse with a fogger set to come on a few times a day. Not sure of which nursery it came from. A forum member got it inspected and sent it to me.

This made it today in pretty good shape. I actually think it may be getting ready to push flowers. I can't  tell for sure but some of the buds don't look like leaf buds to me. I've never seen pulasan flower buds though so I'm not positive. It's a seebabat. Hopefully it recovers well from the bare rooting.

still heading to florida on Thursday. If i miss the boat cruise/or is cancelled, can i visit?   ;D

if not, may end up just getting stuck in ATL.

Your cruise hasn't been canceled yet? There is zero chance it's happening this weekend. I'm surprised the cruise line hasn't already tried to reschedule with you.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Biriba or cherimoya...which is best?
« on: October 01, 2016, 05:42:15 PM »
Rollinia doesn't come remotely close to even an average cherimoya IMO.

I think you'd be better off just replacing with a small tree. Even if it does survive the bare rooting it will probably take a long time to recover and grow normally. I'd be willing to bet a healthy 3 gal tree would catch up and pass it.

Nice. How big is the tree? I've got a few grafted ones that I'm hoping will fruit before I die.

I've tried madrono from a few different sources. They are all sweet assuming they are ripe.

Are you sure your lemon zest is a lemon zest? Do you have a pic of the tree?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Grafted Luc's garcinia onto Imbe
« on: August 11, 2016, 11:19:43 PM »
Here is a photo of a Luc's garcinia grafted on to an in the ground Imbe, it was grafted on to a root sucker of a large Imbe. The ones I grafted onto the Luc planted into the ground have yet to break out.

Looks good but I don't think you are out of the woods yet. I've had 2 initially push like that but then dry up because there was not a connection. For mine the ones that took longest to push seem to be doing best. I thought none of mine had any chance but I actually think I may end up with 4 out of 6 taking. I was so sure none would end up taking I traded one of my grafted mangosteens for one assuming mine were going to be failures. These things seem pretty resilient. My budwood was 30 days old. So far they seem to be compatible with any New world garcinia.

They changed it to 3 days for certain areas/regions (such as Florida to NY) and did it within the last month or so.

I've about had enough with the post office for a variety of reasons and may switch to one of the other carriers next year.

FedEx is pretty good. I ship a lot of overnight packages with them and get a decent discount through my account. If you are shipping a good amount of boxes they give nice rates.

I am curious about these fruits as well. Years ago I was walking through Chinatown and there was a Malay or Indonesian fruit vendor selling tiny yellow mangoes. I thought they were just another variety of mango or immature fruit but they were deliciously sweet and the seeds were somewhat small. The entire fruit was only the size of a kiwi. I have some dried fruit from them still and I didn't try to plant any as again at first I thought they were immature regular mangoes. If anyone knows the variety or species, it would be great, but It sound somewhat similar to this species in my opinion.

Sounds like a maprang.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Rooting a whole fig Tree?
« on: July 23, 2016, 09:09:09 PM »
Rooting in water isn't the best. I'd try cuttings. Maybe you could even leave it in the water and then airlayer above and just hope the water keeps it alive until it has time to send some roots out on the airlayered area. I'd also remove all but a few leaves.
