Ok just to dispel the myth, I went to check on one of my longans that I left snow on. It lost some young growth, but probably had snow overnight on it. The other leaves on the canopy were burnt a bit as well.

I just simply do not see these surviving in NY, full stop.

At first I thought maybe they meant loquat cause it’s possible for them to survive in ground but def not getting fruit. My inground tree got pretty fried this year and I’m in 7a. If we’re actually talking longan it’s gota be container grown and brought under protection 100%

Citrus ripens in the late fall/winter. I'm usually harvesting container grown meyer lemon and ponderosa lemon in December

All I know is the USDA doesn’t play around when it comes to imported citrus trees

pretty decent sized one up on etsy right now. definitely not cheap tho

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / ISO cherimoya rootstock + Inga scions
« on: February 26, 2023, 12:02:41 AM »
Anybody have any cherimoya rootstock or Inga scions from already producing trees they’d be willing to sell?

Also will probably be looking for cacao, sapodilla, and possibly tamarind scions in the next couple months. Any help/insight is greatly appreciated

I don't see why you couldn't but kiwis, both fuzzy and hardy species, are super aggressive growers and do not produce aerial roots in my experience growing them. So they won't necessarily attach themselves to the wall. Just seems like it may be a lot of work.

Black sapote. You can tell from the calyx

Here's some more pics. They look like some kind of larvae, individual and some in clumps. Some look hatched, but can't tell what they are, or if they're doing damage. I WILL BE SPRAYING.

They look like seeds! The first one even looks like a berry of some kind. I'm struggling to have my brain see them as anything else tbh, but I'm sure they are not ACTUALLY seeds. Hopefully someone can help answer it for you.

Definitely look like citrus seeds. First pic looks like its probably bird shit with seeds in it lol

Perfect timing this thread popped up today. Yesterday I was watering the plants I overwinter indoors and noticed a fruit forming on my tree. The tree started flowering early fall and there’s never been more than one flower open at a time. I’ve also done zero hand pollination. So I have no clue how this happened

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Plants for unheated greenhouse
« on: February 10, 2023, 04:28:42 PM »
I keep Xie Shan satsuma, citremon, yuzu, and pineapple guavas all in ground under a poly tunnel throughout the cold months. Temperature swings have never been an issue. I don’t even open the sides on days in 50/60s

The nursery finally updated the listing photo so I'm assuming this is what the fruit will look like

Planted the seeds out last week. Dug one up out of curiosity and seeds are still viable.

Could be the insect problem. My pepper transplants were hit with mealy bug while getting them started indoors last year. The leaves had very similar issues.

I got burned in the same scenario. Purchased a "maprang" from a seller out of PR. Definitely got a mango.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: shiranui sumo citrus
« on: January 28, 2023, 07:30:14 PM »
Shiranui mandarins are def a high quality fruit for flavor. I posted some pics of the fruits i got this year in the general citrus threads. I would say citrus as a whole is pretty cold hardy with most types being able to take into the low 30s.

I've got a few different growing situations going for my zone7a climate. I have a heated greenhouse with dragonfruit that has grown thru the pot into the ground. During the summer i use it just as a nursery to get seeds and seedlings started but in the winter all my more subtropicals/anything that can take into the 30s are packed in there. In there will be all my citrus, avocado, jaboticaba, jamun, guavas, macadamia, eugenias, olive, lucuma, bird of paradise and others +succulents. For anything that needs just another layer of protection i have a hoop house where i use frost cloth and thermal mass to keep some in-ground citrus, pineapple guava, figs, pomegranate, tea, and arbutus. Everything else that is more tropical goes indoor under grow lights; soursop, pouteria, syzygium, jackfruit, inga, sapodilla, cacao, and a bunch of other stuff
