Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Jackfruit after 11 years in SoCal!!
« on: December 01, 2023, 01:21:36 AM »
A house near me had a few big trees with many fruits.
Fruits went bad in winter when we had frost in Feb every year.

My 5 year old seedling in pot has male flowers last winter.
Iím not seeing any now.


You should get a kombucha heat pad to keep the fruits warm.
Maybe itís enough to help young fruits through winter .
Iíll try it when my tree have a fruit.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I donít have any sugarlata nor reticulata grafts on cherimoya.
The others on your list have no issue with cherimoya.

I would train cherimoya to have 8 branches then graft those.

NDM and Maha Chanok are flowering here too.

You can read more about jujube here.
I grafted some but no fruits to compare.


Soil inside a pot have perched water table.
The best way to lower this level is to tilt the pot.

I use 1/2Ē pvc nipple under 1 side of the pot when I need to drain water after a rain.
Try it if your potted plants canít handle high perched water table.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Pumice, lava rock , or both ?

Pumice is fine.
Size doesnít matter.

Pine barks break down fast inside an orchid pot, but take years for mulch application.
I would switch to wood chips.

In the video the graft is called inlay bark graft.
On your tree the graft is called inlay side graft.

Fungi can perform miracles to extract nutrients from the biochar.

Could be a good rs for pot.

Looks good.

Thatís inlay side graft.
Itís my favorite for summer grafting Annona.
I use it for mango too.

Veneer is when you slice a thin strip of bark off the rs and scion.

Dream was best once.
Sweet and a little tart with firm texture.
The fruits tend split a few hours after winter rain so no good.
Difficult to get good fruits in my yard.

TS and prolific were best in my yard last year.
Had a sharp sweetness that I liked.

Gefner was sweet but bland sweetness.
My parents liked it.

Lisa tend to split 5 hours after winter rain.
AP2 was good the year before.
Ok last year.

I have HI PM.
Itís weakest on my multi grafted tree.
A fake.

I have a real PM that turns out to be fake.
Flowers and fruits look like AP

Both fake PM came from same seller.

Do you have a picture of HI PM fruit.

Peeling a strip of bark and sliding scion underneath is inlay.
Look up inlay bark graft.

For summer grafting I use inlay side graft so the rootstock continue to grow while graft heal.
I trim the rs after the scion have leaves.

If graft fails I graft higher or lower.
No damage done.

I donít use cleft in summer.
Is this an option for you?

Calm here.
Light rain all morning.

I would keep the lowest branch to nurse the trunk, cut the rest any time.

I grafted bs to a small Alano.
This is 3rd year yet no flowering.
Alano flowers every year.

Iíve used it for fertigation of trees, including mango.
Canít add much since Mg is so high.
