I didn't think any of them are seedless if there is a male?
How big are the seeds? Were the fruit enjoyable with the seeds?
Some of them do not set fruit without male around. The seedless one should be able to do it but if male is around they will have seeds.
I found their seeds easy to chew compare with passion fruit that I can't eat with seeds or some guava seeds are too hard for me. With che fruit is being chewy, seeds are not possible to separate from flesh.

I will trim my che in a month and could trade cuttings with you.
I have male and female of unknown variety (fruited, very good), and norris has not fruited yet.
Ana
Did the fruit have seeds?
I would like to buy/trade for some cuttings when you trim

thanks
The one that fruited has seeds. Norris is supposed to be seedless.
I am not sure i will have that many cuttings but i will pm you if i have.

Do they come true from seeds? I bought seeds and 2 actually germinated and grow well.
Ana

How long did they take to germ?

A few weeks after 2 months in refrigerator

FruitGrower and Flgarden, what problems did you have with the trees, e.g., growth habit, disease, etc.? Thanks!

P.S. if my coffee plants go, I'll add that to the list of trees I gave up on . . .
Mine were growing a little in the spring and then no growth for the rest of the year and eventually bark was unhealthy looking, cracks, looking stunted. Eventually died.
I have a mango from a root sucker of a tree grown from seed and gave tasty mangos. That one grows like weed fast. Maybe i just pick wrong CC.

I had a large feijoa that was covered in blooms every spring for years and not a single fruit set.

Soursop will be gone. Any temps below 40f , it drops leaves and fruits. Trying mountain soursop instead.
Everbearing mulberry is gone. Too tiny and messy. Will keep thai and
austirkey.
Many unproductive figs are gone.
Kaffir lime tree will be gone. No use for it in my house.
Ana
In case you really like Soursop, I have one that did not loose leaves each of the time I get 36 degree or less, while the others all turn brown and drop leaves.  I will be able to share scions in the future.  For now, I am waiting to see how the fruit tastes.
Interesting soursop you have!  Hopefully it taste good!

I live in your area.
Persimmons, pineapples, sweet potatoes, mulberries, star fruit grow pest free without much care.
Guavas are tough too.

I added a little of kaffir lime juice to salmon dish  without tasting it first. Big mistake... Its not like any other limes. Its strong and bitter. I am not sure how people like it but i am ready to cull my tree since i have no use of fruits.

I have read the same about anise smell. Mexican or mexican hybrid avocados should have that smell and usually they are cold hardy. I tested Poncho leaves, very strong anise  smell.

Which one is bigger than most others, really round, and really sweet? I got a meiwa and it's oblong and not as sweet, but I'm not sure if it's because of a first year issue or plant mix up

You probably have nagami. They are not sweet. My meiwa was a pencil thick and already produced sweet fruit.

I grow only meiwa  but tried nagami too. Meiwa is sweeter and can be picked up green as well, still sweet. My 7 gal is producing non stop. I like it!

Some of them need a second tree. I had one and it was mature, had beautiful flowers every spring and not a single fruit set. Friend of mine purchased unknown variety in a small pot and it produced fruits on the second year.
I feel like trying growing them again but afraid i will end up with non fruiting one.

This storm was very slow moving and kept dumping tons of water for hours before it left any area. Ever in Orlando we see streets flooded that never happened before with any other storms.

I recently planted taiwanese pink guava that looks like on your picture. Plant those seeds! My white asian guava fruited on the second year from seed.

« on: August 07, 2022, 02:08:42 PM »
I will be able to report on my purchase from him maybe next year, but i would not ever buy anything else from him due to so many mismatched varieties.
It looks like he lists all hard to find varieties knowing people will pay big money for them....

I am not a citrus expert, but many years ago an orange seed was planted in my yard and after 10 years it produced perfect sweet oranges.
