Welcome. Hope all those green sapote seeds sprout for you. BTW if anyone else would like green sapote seeds i've got just a few left, but going very fast! I only have them once a year and usually there's a long waiting list. You can order through my website fruitlovers.com

Kamusta Oscar,

I am Berns, from the Philippines.  I would like to say that the scions I ordered to you  like Edward, Rapoza and Golden  Glow Mangoes are doing great.  While the Sharwil Avocado is still in a big pot and will be planted on the ground soon. :)  Thanks for accommodating me.  I am interested in getting different varieties of Longan and Lychee scions for trial planting here in the Philippines.  I hope you can help me on this.

Hey Berns, great to hear from you! Also glad to know that you got those scions i sent you to take in the Phillippines. When you are ready for some longan and lychee scion wood just let me know and i will certainly send you some. I have quite a few cultivars of lychee and longan:
Longan:  Diamond River, Biew Kiew, Sri chompoo, Ilian, Egami, Kohala, Bai Dum
Lychee: Kwai mi pink (also called Bosworth 3), Kaimana, Salathiel, Wai Chee, Groff, Kwai Mi, Emperor, Bengal, Ohia, Yellow Red, Hanging Green, No Mai Tze, Amboina,

Is grafting longan and lychee possible ,, i though you need to air-layer them.

Yes it's possible to graft both lychee and longan. Air layering is what most nurseries do just because it's easiest. When grafting lychee or longan suggest using same cultivar if possible. This will insure a very high take. So for example, when grafting kaimana use a rootstock started from kaimana seeds. Same with longans. There is some incompatibility between some cultivars.

Also, remember a seed grown lychee will send out a tap root, that's also another advantage to air layering them...you get a lot more lateral root growth with air layering methods (which makes for a sturdier tree) which is good for rocky soils ie, miami/dade counties..

A grafted tree will be less easily toppled over than an air layered tree. Whitman preferred airlayers in hurricane area, his thinking was that even if toppled or snaps whole tree is same cultivar and can be righted or can resprout from roots. If a grafted tree snaps you may only be left with the rootstock.

If a grafted tree snaps you may only be left with the rootstock.

I am of the same mind and now experience as Whitman.  I have many Longan and Lychee trees. My largest trees of these two is a Brewster Lychee.  In Hurricane Wilma, I had a couple of lychees topple over and a couple of longans as well. The largest tree, my original Brewster did not tip over and didn't even loose any major branches.  I did have a Bengal and Hak Ip and a smaller Brewster tip over.  However, in the longan department, my seedling Longan (seedling of Kohala) tipped over (so much for conclusively better wind resistance with a seedling rootstock)  and my largest See Chompoo Longan snapped at ground level.  The See Chompoo, as an airlayer, resprouted from the roots and is a pretty large tree again and fruiting this year.. I do think that seedlings which are then grafted probably do provide more well rooted trees, but I don't think the difference is that great from my observations.  And since it is quite difficult to graft and quite easy to airlayer, I think there will be continued preference for layering.

I just carted off some of the lychee trunks i cut over a month ago. Lo and behold one of the trunks just laying on the ground was starting to sprout out, like a giant cutting that hadn't even been stuck in the ground!

Wow, go figure.....never would have thought that could happen.  Very interesting. Maybe in Hawaii's super moist environment, lychee cuttings might be another way to successfully propagate.

Yes, was laying inside moist wood chips from the cut lychees and the whole log sprouted. The others just laying on the surface did not sprout.

Depends on temperatures in route. But usually 1-2 weeks is no problem.

Send seeds to NZ all the time. A phyto sanitary certificate is not required for NZ. You just have to make sure the seeds you want are on the permitted list for your country. Contact your ag department to find out what is on the permitted list.

The seed page is kind of long, so with slow dial up connections sometimes it may not load well or only load impartially. Usually hitting the reload button helps.

Hi
is there an suggestion for reliable and tasty Jackfruit cultivar available to grow from seed?
and about the cheena, how dos it compare in taste\odor intensity and sweetness?
is growing jackfruit from seeds and having high expectations contradicting each other?
I'd like to make an calculated risk and need advice.
