Tropical Fruit Discussion / Loquat ripening in February ?
« on: February 05, 2023, 02:40:27 PM »
I'm in SoCal and have one seedling loquat tree that is fruiting now, and it has some ripe fruits in February. I tasted a few ripe fruits, and it was sweet.

Anyone else have early ripening loquats on their trees?

All my other loquat varieties (80+) have green fruits, but none have ripened this early. 

2
I'm interested in buying the following white sapote cuttings:

1. Fairhaven -JF seedling tree of Suebelle
2. Grand - seedling of McDill
3. Sunset
4. Rainbow

I may be able to trade a few cuttings from my Super Sweet or Younghan's Gold.
If you know any nursery that carries any of them, please let me know.

3
For Sale::

These cuttings are from an old tree, 40+ yrs, planted in my parents yard. Fruits are non-astringent, larger than fuyu or jiro, very sweet, seedless.

I have some non-astringent asian persimmon cuttings for sale:
1. Cuttings are $5 each
2. Shipping, USPS priority mail, $10
3. Cuttings will be 1/4"-7/16" diameter, length 6"-8" long.
4. Only shipping to lower 48 states
5. Paypal payment only, For Friends and Family.

Send me a PM if interested.

I have the right to refuse sale to anyone.

Here's some photos of the fruits and cuttings.

Can anyone help me identify this fruit on the tree. It may be a grapefruit or pomelo.

I will not be able to tell what fruit yet, when it is ripe I should be able to taste it.
This fruit is interesting in that it has the pitam (tip) that I don't see in most fruits.

If anyone has either of these two white sapote, I'm looking for a few scionwood of each:
1. Fairhaven
2. Sunset

If you want to trade, I have other white sapote or many loquat varieties for trade. Also many mulberry varieties.

I lost 10 varieties from my large seedling tree (multi-grafted) when I transplanted it, it died this year.

Buddha's Hand citrus fruit, anyone else growing this one?

I'm not sure what use there is, maybe ornamental. If you grow this fruit, please mention how you use the fruit.

-symbol of happiness and long life, good fortune.

I grafted a few branches with the Buddha's Hand and got my first fruit this year. Here's some photos of the only fruit.  If you have fruits, please post some photos of your Buddha's Hand.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Makrut lime
« on: November 22, 2022, 06:21:56 PM »
I have a Makrut lime tree which has been giving some fruits. I know people like to use the leaves for cooking, dishes.

I wanted to ask if anyone ever use the juice from this fruit. It seems to have lots of juice in each small fruit so it is nice, but I didn't know if it can be used for anything.

Here's my fruit photos.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Yucatan Custard Apple Hybrids ?
« on: November 21, 2022, 12:45:45 AM »
Does anyone have Franks seedlings of these yucatan custard apple hybrids?

1. Uxmal rojo
2. Tizimin rojo
3. Merida amarillo

He was selling 12 seedling trees in 2020 and i wanted to see if anyone that purchased it can provide status of how their tree is doing now.

I got 2 from Frank, the Uxmal rojo and Merida amarillo, but the Uxmal died so I only have Merida now. My tree is in a pot, grew to about 5 ft tall now.

Anyone know when these seedlings would start to fruit?

I had to remove more branches from my KT3-Sheri Lynn loquat tree today..

This is a new variety introduction from my seedling collection. It is one of my favorite loquat fruit, very good taste, texture is more like a Vista White, flesh is white, fruit size medium.

The grafts and tree are a vigorous grower, much more than other varieties I grow.

Sale is Closed now.

It looks like i can take a few more cuttings from my seedling tree which has very good tasting fruits (white flesh, sweet no acid) so I will have this last contest for the year again for a chance to win a free KT3 scion cutting. This is my reserve variety which I have not sold much of, and it will not be sold next year.

===================
Contest will end on OCt 31.
===================


It looks like i can take a few more cuttings from my Peluche grafts so I will have this last contest for the year again for a chance to win a free Peluche scion cutting.

This loquat cutting will be from my grafted tree that is a proven Peluche with the large orange flesh fruits. The origin of this Peluche source is Adam (Flying Fox Fruits). My tree has fruited for 2 years, currently has many large green fruits on them now. When the fruits ripen, I will post some photos and follow up on the taste comparison to my other varieties. Last year I gave it a taste rating of 8-9 out of 10 (best). I do not taste any funny taste, or mushy texture that a few members here have stated, maybe they have a problem with their rootstock? If there is any flavor/taste that is negative, I will mention it on my review this season.

Here's the free contest rules: 
1. Only open to forum members that have been a member for at least 1 year. month
2. For those who live in contiguous (lower 48 states) USA.
3. You will need to pay for handling/shipping of $11, USPS priority mail, small box.
4. Cutting will be 1/4"-3/8" hardened wood. Tree is a vigorous grower.
5. Contest will go on until some lucky person guesses the correct answer.
6. You must post your guess here, do not send me a PM.

I have the right to refuse to offer this to anyone that is on my bad (no sell) list.

7. Pick a number in the range of 1-100, only TWO guesses per member.

-> I will use a random number generator to pick the winning number now.
I will check in each day to see if anyone has won. Once there is a winner, I will post it, and send a PM to the winner. The winner has 1 week to confirm they want the cutting.

Anyone growing either Younghan's Gold or Supersweet white sapote?

I have both, also Bonita Springs. Just wondering if anyone has tasted these two Florida varieties and which one they liked better.

This is the first year I have fruits that will grow to full size on my grafts, so I hope to do a taste comparison in a month or so and report my findings. If you have any photos of the fruits, I would like to see it so please post it here.

Citrus General Discussion / Citrus macrophylla
« on: August 13, 2022, 03:46:22 PM »
Has anyone tried growing seeds of Citrus macrophylla ?

I have a lemon rootstock, Citrus macrophylla, that I let grow and now its a pretty tall tree (7-8 ft) and has some large fruits on it. Fruit is still green, size of a large lemon, so I will wait until the fruit turns yellow before I pick them and get the seeds.

I'm planning to grow the seeds and use the seedlings to graft some lemon varieties I have since the seedling rootstock should have stronger roots (tap roots).

Also, has anyone rooted cuttings of the Citrus macrophylla? It may be quicker to grow them from cuttings but I'm not sure how good the root structure will be for use as a rootstock plant.

« on: June 16, 2022, 01:35:18 PM »
I have a question for those of you who are experienced with hand pollinating passion fruits.

I grafted this passiflora decaisneana last year (10-9-21) and it has it's first flower of the year, can anyone tell me if I can pollinate the flower using the pollen from the same flower or should I use pollen from another variety?
