I have had the same problem happen to me. I want to eliminate the problem as water constantly dripping from the ceiling of the gh will cause problems on some types of plants. Opening the vents should help eliminate the problem during the day, but the cold will get in.

Thanks everyone replied.  I know what I should order.

Another question, this is the Xie Shan grafted I did last year November.  It doesn't should any grow for almost a year.  Do you think it is surviving?

I would probably give it a chance. I have had an oroblanco graft take over a year to start growing.


After up potting some eugenia calycina plants, I realized that I have way too many. These were sprouted from seeds provided by the Plinia Prince (FFF). 8)
Have a nice root system. $3.50 each, minimum order of 6 plants. Shipping and handling fee is $15. Will be sent without pot.
If you want to buy more than 15, I can do a cheaper rate.

I also have some other plants for sale

Chempedak jackfruit hybrid $15 Tastes better than a jackfruit and has very little sap.

Have several Glycosmis pentaphylla plants. $8 each

$15 for 2 rooted june plum cuttings

Aren't chestnuts all affected by some blight?  I thought there was a disease that wipes them all out.  Not sure of how long it takes thougj
Yes, but some have more tolerance than others. The American chestnut was virtually wiped out of existence because of chestnut blight. Meanwhile, the Japanese and Chinese chestnuts have resistance to the blight and are not affected by it. The European chestnuts have some tolerance, but still can get killed. I read that scientists have crossed the Chinese with the American in an effort to introduce blight resistance.

It's that time of year when the temperate fruit crops are ripening. I am offering to trade these top quality temperate fruits to you people who can't get access to them easily in warmer climates. I will update this thread when I get new things to offer.
Right now I have some chestnuts to trade. I am interested in any tropical fruit, seed, scion, or plant available.
Chestnuts can be boiled or roasted and the ones available at the store don't do it justice. These were foraged by me from a local source. It is a mix of Chinese, Japanese, European, and some unknown hybrids. Taste is sweet and starchy.

These are in high demand and I can't send too many. First come first serve. Later in the season I will have different types of apples and other fruits.
If you don't have anything to trade, I can sell them to you. $25 for a small flat rate box shipped to you. If I don't respond to your pm in a day, I probably did not get it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Can allspice fruit indoors in a pot?
« on: September 18, 2021, 12:42:31 PM »
I believe so. I have an allspice that I used to keep indoors during the winter. It does well as a houseplant. Mine is about 4 feet tall and has flowered the last 2 seasons, but no fruit set.

Very pretty tree planted all over major cities in the north east US. Most if not all that are planted are male trees, but sometimes the tree can switch genders... During the season everything under the tree smells bad and the fruits cover everything in a nasty pulp.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Show off your greenhouses
« on: August 31, 2021, 02:51:54 PM »
Nice greenhouses everyone!
Here are some pictures of mine (built last year):

Currently in ground I have mangoes, jackfruit, abiu, guava, jaboticaba, white sapote, garcinia brasiliensis, lychee, rollina, sugar apple, and pitanga. Most of these have been in ground for a little over a year.
I hope one day to upgrade the sides of the greenhouse to polycarbonate walls as they have a cleaner look. Also am still looking for ways to make the greenhouse more efficient at retaining heat.
The dimensions are 20x28 with a 12ft peak. 

Recently was able to find some kyoho at the Asian market. The fruit was grown in CA resulting in seeded fruit and small fruit unlike the ones I had in Korea.
My favorite grape of all time - shine muscat. Have been looking for a cutting of this for ages. Have only been able to find the fruit twice in the US.

Kyoho on right, Naibell on left

I don't know if that would work, but what I can say from experience is that they are smart and will keep coming back unless drastic measures are done.

Chestnuts need to be cold stratified to sprout. I leave them in a plastic bag in the fridge over winter then plant them out in the spring.

The leaves remind me of cinnamon apple (pouteria hypoglauca).

I got some cold hardy bananas growing as landscape and they do great. The fruits are seedless, but not edible.

Kaz, I'll take one! Thank you!

Nice find. I found 100's of trees all covered in fruits rafting down a river this summer. Hopefully I can find time to go back and collect fruits this year. The wild ones I have been able to taste are kind of gritty, mushy, and sweet. Makes good rootstocks.

Thanks everyone for their interest. The one listed above is sold. However, if you are interested in this plant, I have one up for sale on ebay.
Bid starts at $1, no reserve pricing. Whoever wins this one is probably in for a big steal!!!

looks like some sort of garcinia.

I think that it is normal as your tree look pretty young. Young tree bark is the brown stuff, and once it gets older the bark starts to peel, revealing the regular bark (that patch you are seeing). As the tree ages, it will peel more and more of the trunk will look like that.
