Soil light temperature and fertilization all play a role. My lychee seedling also seem to be slow growing had them for about a year and just reached about 6inches. Make sure the soil is well draining.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Wood shaving in potting mix?
« on: July 13, 2020, 06:32:45 PM »
Just got some untreated oak wood shavings and am wondering if it is any good to put in potting mix. I know oak is high in tannins. Is there any benefit of putting it in potting mix?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Selling avocado seedlings
« on: July 13, 2020, 06:29:54 PM »
Selling 3 avocado seedlings. Fruit is from California. Mother tree is purported to be bacon variety. Fruit is medium to large size and has a medium size seed. Healthy and vigorous seedlings for rootstock.  $10 each plus shipping or all 3 for $20 plus shipping. Pm for details.

Take it outside. Even in zone 6 it is warm enough in the summer to let them outside. Just make sure it doesnt get shocked, put it in partial shade.

Thanks to everyone who responded now looking for lakoocha.

Is it a seedling? They sometimes take a long time to fruit. I got a 3 gallon at PIN last year and it already flowered.

I have eaten only store bought mameys, and thought the store fruit guality is generally very poor ,I really liked it ,a unique taste, very sweet .i'd imagine a tree ripened mamey to be heavenly ...

If they are picked before they are ripe, they will never reach full flavor.

Plantinyum, I am pretty sure the gooseberries died because I neglected them and planted it in heavy shade. Maybe I will try growing them again.

It's good for keeping the lawn service guys from weedwacking the base of the tree.

Impressive collection! I hear that you need to thin around 80% of the peaches for big fruits. As for my trees I don't bother thinning because the squirrels eat all the fruit. :-\ I have always wanted to try gooseberries, but my plant died :(

Spring is probably the best time although it could be done sometime else with the right conditions.

I was also looking for a nice size one and found it here, Hawaiian Tropical Plants Nursery (
Got the plant yesterday as described on the website. The plant is 38 inches tall, about 2 years old and for $47.50, it's a real nice bargain and couldn't find that anywhere else.

I have ordered from them and highly recommend them. Cheap prices and cheap shipping rates for high quality plants.

The buds should push through the tape... Sometimes I get impatient and unwrap the tape and have the graft die.

Is it getting regular fertilization?

What do you fertilize the jabos with? have a sabara in a 15 gallon and about 5 feet tall and still waiting for fruit. :'( Keep up the good work!

Thank you to everyone who responded :)

If you are in Homestead, I would recommend Robert is Here fruit stand.

I am pretty sure that although che and jujube can be grown in south FL, they are temperate fruits so they like some cold in the winter.
