I found FRESH 1 day old cherimoya to be easiest seed ever to grow.  Stick 40 in a bag w perlite wait few weeks and plant the ones that have germinated.  Last cherimoya i ate had already germinated seeds n planted those...easy peezy

Got two plants from kevin, either on this sn or another, but very nice!!!!!  Very healthy trees

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Potted atemoya production
« on: June 04, 2020, 05:57:27 PM »
   As I plan my atemoya grove, have wondered what type of fruit production I can expect from the common varieties (geffner, lisa, AP, PPC) when potted and fully branched out.  For purpose of discussion, lets say a 25 gallon mature tree.  Production might vary from cultivar to cultivar, but what is general ballpark for # of fruit, and what has been experience.  Potted only

#1 lemon zest
#2 sugar loaf
#3 sweet tart
#4 pina colada

Pineapple pleasure shouldnt be on list.  I rank c+

Havent tried others

Dont see point.  Just keep jabos in big pots, they do just fine and maybe even better than ground

ME TOO!  It is terrible this week they love my red jaboticabas.  They have been just crawling up and down them.  Took out one hive on my red jabo but they keep coming back anyway.  They fly from red jaboticaba to grumichama and back all day, avoiding all other trees nearby.  Hate wasps

If we get a cold winter like we did a couple years back, your dream Annona isn't going to make it without a source of heat. All my annonas bar the mountain Annona died. The mountain I thought died too and I pulled it and planted something else. Came back from deployment and apparently they have the ability to come back from just a section of root and I now have two trees in that spot.

I am also in east Orange county. In the city you guys stay a bit warmer than us so you might be ok.

No avocado on your list? If you can grow mango, you can grow avocado, especially if you don't have a deer issue.
I second the peach idea.
Figs, if you are on native soil, don't grow them in the ground.
My longon never grew, I think we were two cold.
Wax Jambu- I have had fruit on mine. I have it right up against a woods line and don't protect it during the winter.
Ice Cream Bean- grows great here and makes for a great chop and drop tree.

Ah damn, I will be a little higher in seminole.  Definitely concerning about the annonas as the rare ones have been hardest to acquire.  I will probably go through effort of moving to garage for those (although I want to limit how many i have to do that with).  For mangos I know 2 different guys with success in Lake Mary and Deltona who have huge mature mangos.  General strategy seems to be protect until trunk wide (~5 years) then plant in ground and let it go.  Also can mulch the hell out of base.  Im going to go w/ VP, super julie, sweet tart, dot, and other proven vigorous sp for when they do take that hit and die to trunk can recooperate.

Yes definitely will have to add was jambu and ice cream bean.  Both seem like good contenders for cold.  Planning to only grow the figs in pots to avoid nematode.  If i do get any ill just clone the original tree.  Avocados I will look into, but some of the non-hass ones Iíve had in past I havent enjoyed much.  Maybe I havent had right ones.  (Donít like that subtle sweet taste in avocado)

cattley guavas should be ok, passiflora edulis, lucuma (if you can find it), avocados, loquat, longan

just like that, I am now a lucuma grower.  glad i asked this question, would have never known.  will look into others too

 Live in 9b/9a (north central Fl) and trying to figure out what I still NEED to buy.  For other people, perhaps my list will help give some ideas. 

So far I have:
White sapote (younghan/redland)
Jaboticaba (red, black, grimal, yellow, white, phithratra, oblangata and many of the rarer varieties)
Banana cultivars (blue)
Dream annona
Prolific mango varieties that might recover after a cold hit (VP, super julie, etc)
E calycinia/involucrata
E dasyblasta
E reinwardtiana
Malphigia glabra
Zills dark suriname

What else is needed for occasional dips to mid 20's.  do not wish to move things indoors

Sent u a PM.  Very interested

Reminiscent of 47-18

E calycina vs E involucrata.  Anyone have real life experience in tasting differences?
