Hello everyone,

My name is Miles. I've lived in Deltona, Florida (9b) for the last 12 years or so of my life. I've always enjoyed fruit - when I was young, between 3 and 7, I would forage with my Oma and Opa for various berries, eat roadside apples, and flushes of mushrooms.

I kind of lost my way but through the disease recovery process, and most specifically utilizing cannabis, I got a munchie-like appetite for information. At first it was natural supplements, then exercise, natural supplements turned into food sources, and now I collect fruit trees. In my collection so far I've got a few different kinds of bananas and jaboticabas, a few Garcinias, pineapples, biriba, mulberries, citrus, papayas, some Eugenias, lychee, longan, avocado. I've really taken to seed sprouting, currently cultivating guavas, cacaos, jaboticabas, star apple/milk fruit, and some Garcinias from seed.

Really enjoying lurking through this community so far!

Hello, not new just been gone for a few years. I lost all my trees in hurricane Irma in 2017 and haven't had the will to replant. I recently moved to Hawaii and am planning on starting my fruit tree collecting again.

Welcome to the Forum, Pascal. As I am sure you are well aware, many interesting tropical fruits grow on Reunion. A couple of years ago, I bought a book about Reunion's fruits: Tropical Fruits: The Compendium by Fabrice Le Bellec and Valérie Renard. I had not thought of Reunion in conjunction with tropical fruit cultivation until I came across that title.

You should put this request on the Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade board where it is more likely to be read and replied to. I know that one grower has offered camu camu seeds relatively recently. He may or may not still have some available, and I have no idea whether he ships internationally.

Hello. Bueno día.

Born and raised in Texas, just moved away about a year ago to my dream life here in Borikén also known as Puerto Rico.

I am so glad I found this place. I am here to learn, share information and buy/trade/barter.

I am currently growing a ton of tropical fruits and vegetables. I soon will make a list of it all and share to see if anyone is interested. I do a have several rare species that I would like to spread too.

Many blessings!
Located in Borikén, unplugged from the system.

Greetings!

My name is Grace and is from Southern California, zone 10B.  I have limited experiences in gardening, and only get into this hobby for the last two years.  Currently, I have the following in the ground:
- Cara Cara Orange
- Maha Chankook Mango
- Sharwil Avocado
- Fuyu Persimmon
- Pakinstani Mulberry (to be planted)
- Geffner Atemoya (to be planted)
- Lemon Gold White Sapote (to be planted)

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.

Hello everyone, I’m Adam, and I’m a senior in high school. I first started getting into plants in the 8th grade, when I realized just how much more there was to the world than just apples and pears. At first, I experimented with tamarillos, and now have a nearly 3 year old flowering tamarillo indoors. As of now I am specializing in eugenias.

Right now I have :
Eugenia Selloi

Eugenia Repanda

Eugenia Itaguahiensis

Eugenia Stipitata

I am planning on getting more eugenias in the future, specifically more obscure species in the genus, like hirsta, squamiflora, etc etc… the list goes on   :o

Best Regards,
Adam

Hello everyone,
my name is Luigi, I am 45 years old, I live in the South of Sardinia near Cagliari, (Italy), in the family we grow some fruit trees, for some years I have been delighting with some tropical fruit, some born from seed, others bought grafted, most of them I'm experimenting with in the ground, for now I have had success with papayas born from Vietnamese seeds, from which I have collected some fruits, and in a while I collect a clone of similar Orinoco, and a Kent mango, my intention was to create a mini foodforest, we will see in the future what I can do, I have been reading this forum for some time, and it has been useful to me in many occasions, I am here to learn, today I decided to subscribe, Thanks…

There is always a good reason to plant a tree.

Hi folks,

I'm Blake From Eastern Massachusetts.  I LOVE fruit of all types and am working on getting into tropicals to grow indoors.  I've lurked here in the past but am finally joining up.

My wife and I currently grow temperate stuff - apple, nectarine, cherry, blueberry, blackberry, grape, honeyberry, grape, arctic kiwi. 

Currently we are apartment dwellers, but eventually we'll have a greenhouse at our own place and an indoor grow area of some sort.  Hoping to grow these among others in the future -
- Multigrafted citrus, mango, avocado, mulberry
- Lychee
- Passionfruit
- Maybe banana, longan, rambutan, etc...

But I'm hoping to get us started with some Melicoccus bijugatus (quenepa, mamoncillo, genip, mamon, etc.).  I've had them in Guatemala and Yucatan MX and I am obsessed with them.  After this I'll be posting asking for advice on rootstock/cultivars of those.

Cheers!
