Hi Brad, this is what I do but as the scions start growing I start to tear bag open more to allow scions to acclimate. From start I cut bags at short edges to reduce heat and white bags help.



WOW Scott that is a lot of grafts on one tree,

your rootstalk needs to be actively growing other than that any time is good to graft and any kind of graft will work, both of those are very easy to work with, working with those trees you can make specimen showoff cocktail fruit salad trees as you can have Loquat-Quince- Pear and Apple all on one tree, makes a very showy subject

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: plant patent question
« on: April 06, 2021, 08:04:11 PM »
Bigger question is why do you want to patent it?
Hi Rob I do'not want to patent anything, I would just like to grow out a few seeds on one of my trees who's male parent is under patent and if I achieve what I hope I would like to document the results                                                                           Regards   Patrick

Tropical Fruit Discussion / plant patent question
« on: April 06, 2021, 12:52:00 PM »
Hi All have a question on plant patents, if I have a patented tree lets call it #1 and also a non-patented tree called #2 can I use the pollen from tree #1 to pollinate tree #2 and afterwards plant the seeds?

Hi all, does anyone grow this fruit (Alibertia Patinio Borojoa Patinoi, borojo ) ? and does it have a shorter common name ?                   Regards    Patrick

electrical tape has 2 sides, try using it backwards and it will not stick to the tree but will stink to its self

Very interesting size and named fruit, come on Patrick you can come up with a better name for sure!!
All kidding aside please do keep us informed when that baby fruits Shane!!
Hi Scott the others are named 1-2-3-4-5 , I am not really into the name naming thing , but I think the name "pork chop" would be a bit more fitting

Will keep yíall posted. It actually could be the same as that thick leaf one. He can jump in and clarify.
[/qHi Shane , it probably is the same as Jim's thick leaf as I got seeds in a seed swap of 7 varieties all at the same time and from 6 different people I do have at least 4 or 5 very distinct looking/shaped leaves and some really great fruit

morning doves do not eat fruit,  are you that this is not just excess young fruit being aborted by the tree?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Cot-N-Candy Aprium Cuttings
« on: January 26, 2021, 11:00:55 AM »
Wondering if these are still available as neither the facebook link nor the eBay link show anything.  I am also wondering if it is possible for them to root using rooting hormone as opposed to grafting since I have no Aprium rootstock.  I am having some luck rooting some mango cuttings as an experiment. I have not had any luck with them from cuttings although I only tried 1 time but they can be grafted to almost any stone fruit

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What to plant in wet muck soil
« on: January 16, 2021, 01:38:01 PM »
something really different,  maybe dig it down in winter 1 foot or souse the soil as berm for trees and raise crawfish in the pond there  are a lot of good edible plants that grow in water or muck and you will never have to feed the crawfish

drying it always uses up a lot of fruit and uses no energy to store
