Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Traveling to Los Angeles

Due to unforseen circumstances I will be traveling to Los Angeles this week. 

Do you guys know where I can purchase some nice Atemoyas and/or cherimoyas?  I will only be until Sunday but maybe I can try something nice.  I have read very good things about California annonas.


If you meant to purchase live plants, the 2 nurseries stated above are good choices.  If you meant to purchase fresh fruits, you can try and call them ahead to see what are available.  This is located in West Los Angeles and shouldn't be too far from LAX.  I have never shop here so cannot give a recommendation.  I did found some Cherimoya two weeks ago from Sprouts supermarket; they only stock a few and infrequent for $6.99/lb.  Good luck!

Hey Thera,

I got the NV1 from a local trade. It hasnít grown too much but hopefully it will grow enough to take some scions this Winter. Please check back with me in dormant season.

VDB has been consistently good when grown in San Diego. Because of its excellent berry flavor and intense red coloration, it makes a great jam that can be stored and eaten in Winter when fresh figs arenít normally available.

Hi Simon,

May I also get in line for a possible trade with NV1?  Thank again for your advice on growing mango.

All the Best,

dumb question.  First year our tree is getting a lot of fruit.  how big do you let them get before picking?  1/2 inch,  larger?

Mine is still in pot so can't comment on the size compared to in ground tree.  However, I picked them when they are soft to touch and in deep orange/red color.

In Containers:
- All sort of figs
- Achacha
- Black Surinam Cherry
- Utah Sweet Pomegranate
- Goji Berry
- A few mango seedlings

and a couple raised beds to grow veggies

I learned a lot from this forum, and thank you for everyone's contribution and sharing of expertise.

Anyone know how to get help with using the email function on this forum?  I sent a few emails out by clicking on the email icon of a member, finish composing and click sent.  However, I never got any replies back and was able to confirm with at least 1 member outside of the forum that no email was received.  The "sent" emails did not show up under my sent folder either.  Very strange.  Appreciate if someone can help me to resolve this.

PM sent.  Thanks.

Are there anymore left?  I don't think email out on this forum is working for me but I may be able to receive email.  Please respond here if there is no response.  Thanks.

PM sent.  Thanks.


I am new to this forum.  Great info!  Has anyone grown Philippines Carabao mango in SoSCal or in Los Angeles?  How does it compare to Lemon Zest, Sweet Tart and Nam Doc Mai? 

It seems Ong Nursery in San Diego may have it but they don't opened until the weekend.  Trying to find out if this Carabao from Ong's is the same that is grown on the island of Guimaras that are supposedly very sweet.  Is it grafted or on its rootstock, and does it grow well in SoCal with clay soil etc.

Thanks in advance!
