Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Loquat container growing
« on: December 05, 2021, 06:32:52 AM »
I had five loquats I grafted in 3 gallon pots. I gave 2 away and kept
three.I wanted them to grow fast and put them in a good potting mix
with rabbit manure, compost, and coffee grounds mixed in. I bumped them
to a 7 and then to a 15 in about a year and a half and then planted in
the ground last Spring. The two I gave away to my neighbor and sister
are half the size of mine but are also in the ground now.

Any "temoylata" is an Annona hybrid whose seed parent (a.k.a. mother-tree) was an "atemoya", AND whose pollen parent (father-tree) was an Annona reticulata.

["Atemoya" is itself an Annona hybrid: a mix of Annona squamosa with Annona cherimola, and not with any other species.]

The '47--18' is indeed a "temoylata".  It came into being in the mid 1980's, at Zill Nursery, when I got pollen from a male-stage flower of 'San Pablo' Annona reticulata and placed it in a female-stage flower of 'Gefner' Atemoya.  The several seeds that formed in the resulting fruit were planted and grown into trees, which were planted in the experimental field's 47th row.  The one in position 18 was selected because of its high productivity and gorgeous shiny RED fruits.  However, its flavor is extremely mild, in the best conditions.  In poor conditions it is tasteless or off.

It is not an atemoya, so red atemoya is not correct.

It is not from Israel.

It is red, but there are others too.
Thanks Har for the explanation
Is this different then the 47-18 your describing above?

I heard a story that this tree actually came from scions from Zill's and was actually
the same as the 47-18. There also was a different story on this forum that this same
bland tasting 47-18 is now being sold with a completely different name at a nursery in California?
I was able to receive scions from the trees being sold in Europe but my tree snapped in a
wind storm before I could evaluate the fruit

I have heard most of those names for the same tree.
I had one but it snapped at the graft on a windy day

One of my Black Berry jam fruit has 5-6 fruit on it and a couple of them
turned yellow. They are still hard? Do they soften up after picked?

Girdling at bloom and then thinning?

Why girdle the tree? Girdling helps induce flowering, these trees don't need help

The pictures cbss_daviefl posted really shows when the fruit starts to seperate
between the segments and is getting close. Your fruit has no seperation between
the segments. I like to squeeze the fruit also morning and night. They do get soft
fast. I had rabbits eating the fruit from my trees and also raccoons this past season
and had to time it right. Is the tree really in NJ? In my experience in florida the fruit
is more sweeter in the Summer and Fall when the temps are warmer. The trees go dormant
when the sunlight decreases and any Winter fruit has not been as good?

Do you water the trees?
Also you could thin the fruit if you want larger fruit

Mike, I picked one a few weeks ago from a mature tree that had many fruits that were yellow and let it sit on the table for 4 days before eating it. I was good, first time I ate one of those. I thought the fruits are usually pointed on one end, what variety is yours ?
They do have a point on one end. They are TREC 2

They won’t get soft on the tree. If they do then they’ll fall apart on the ground. You can probably pick them at this point and let them ripen until soft.
Lots of fun!

Are these canistel ready to pick? These are my first fruits and they are still hard

The best indicator is how your trees are doing?

Are your trees in the ground or in pots?
I water mine with well water that is 6.3 and mostly rain water that
is 7. Soil PH is also important. If the PH is too high the trees tend to get
chlorotic. How are your trees doing?

How often do you water your glenn?

I wouldn't worry about the tree. There is nothing you can do about
the old leaves. I use Diamond R  8-4-8 granular with micros and spray southern
ag citrus foliar spray a couple times a year. Also I water heavy in the Summer
if it doesn't rain. My small trees are very dark green and flushing constantly.
When the trees start to fruit I quit the granular fertilizer and only use the
spray. Get the tree on a good regimen and watch it take off

I have a couple sabara in the ground also.
What I noticed with all my jabos is that as they get bigger and older
they flower and set fruit more and more. One of my sabaras is fruiting
several times a year now and so far all the fruit have one very small seed.
This is the third year I have gotten fruit and it fruited 3-4 times so far
this year. My other tree flowered in the middle of rainy season for the first
time and none of the fruit set. Be patient

How big of a tree is your Glenn?
It may be getting ready to push flowers?
Usually cooler weather is important but less water and
daylight hours also influence flowering. Several of my smaller
trees are still pushing new growth now. I hope it hardens before
any cold weather.
