Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cold tolerant Annonas
« on: December 21, 2022, 03:30:27 PM »
Wondering what would be the top 5 most cold-tolerant Annonas?

1) Annona cherimola
2) ????
3) Annona montana ?
4) ????
5) ????

Bonus points if they are "mountain climate" cold tolerant (i.e. cold & wet) rather than dry cold tolerance. :)

Citrus General Discussion / Pomelo / Grapefruit ID
« on: November 14, 2022, 04:00:42 AM »
Hi folks, wanting to get a better idea of what this might be. It was sold as pomelo, would come from a few decades old tree (not imported fruit), Southern hemisphere. I don't have any photos of the tree sorry.

Zest: Smells just like grapefruit. Extremely bitter, by far the bitterest Citrus part I've ever put in my mouth. Eating a small piece of zest numbs my whole mouth, with some tingling (no I'm not allergic to grapefruit or any other Citrus and eat plenty of Citrus rind, eat tons of marmalade etc)
Pith: Very bitter.
Flesh: Smells like some storebought lemonade drink with a grapefruit hint. Juice/flesh is fairly sour, bitter and not a lot of sweetness. I guess fairly similar to white grapefruit juice.
Seeds: Extremely large, rectangle shape.

Despite all this, I can't get rid of the idea of trying to make marmalade from the whole fruit... it would be immensely potent and probably just pure medicine taste. Madness.

Looking for some of these seeds :)


Pouteria 'Ross', campechiana, viridis and lucuma (if good varieties) are what I'm seeking for now.

Any seeds with a parent of Tsurunoko, Maru or Hyakume I would be very interested in, other varieties as well. :)
