Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What should i do about this jabo?

If the stress came from a dry pot I would submerge the pot underwater over night then re pot. If it's just from a hot shipping box I wouldnt worry to much about anything but watering it and or re potting.

Just realized I never responded lol. Heres foliage on my tree and fruit from it the fruit can get to a reddish color when you leave them on the tree but the inside is always orange. I would assume if your fruit didnt get at all red/purple on the inside its tropical apricot.

All made it safe and sound! Our first time trying these for sure wont be the last lol. I could eat these all day thanks again!!!!

Yes you can graft cherimoya to soursop.

Ill second Kevin's seedling reds are really nice!!!!  I do have a small grafted red I could sell if that interests you. But you wouldnt be disappointed with Kevin's seedlings.

Can you post a pic of the fruit/foliage? Not sure if they sell both but I could possibly I.d. from a pic. From what your describing it does sound like tropical apricot.

The jaboticaba has salt burn , more than likely from over fertilizing/hard water combo. Not 100% on the sugar apple. Is it in a humid area?

I guess I'll kick it off. I really only have one funny story I can think of......So i have to bring all my plants into indoor grow rooms for the winter. Year 2 of my journey I figure hey I'll bring my soil in so it's not frozen when I want to use it. So i set one of the bags in my tent for ease of repotting. My son at the time was 2-3 he spent alot of time finding pill bugs and such crawling in pots. After a watering session my son was saying something about a furry critter I just shrugged it off as his imagination. Fast forward a few days I hear something in there I open it nothing moving anymore. We do have mice in our basement once and a while so I set some traps around and 1 in the tent. Next day trap in the tent snapped but nothing in it. I kid u not I look in the trap see red hair immediately know it's a chipmunk lookup and the things ontop of one of my lights. I panic he panics plants are flying chipmunk is flying, I b line for the door zip it shut and realized "wtf now". I ended up in a lacross helmet and gloves busted in there like the koolaid man to an empty tent. Searching around I found his HQ I know this because he was willing to defend it, turned out he was hiding in the soil all along planning his infiltration. Ran up my arm when I put my hand in the bag jumped somewhere I was to busy being super manly to see where he landed. So round 2 lasted what felt like forever based on the amount of sweat that was on my body but the wife informed me I'm just outta shape to be sweating that bad in 5 mins, but I got him and he couldnt bite through my gloves thank god.The chipmunk ended up accidentally tripping down the stairs and tragically didnt make it. It's crazy he stayed right in the tent without me noticing for so long, very glad he didnt escape into my house! So moral of the story is check your stuff before bringing it indoors lol it could save you a jamaican cherry and miracle fruit tree that might get caught up in friendly fire...... and your dignity lol. I havent thought of that in a while and I can still remember every detail lol.

My starfruit does the same thing. I think its sap extruded from either high humidity or overwatering. Never had any bad effects on my tree from it.

I doubt itll keep throwing them but figured I'd share a pic while it's there. Couldnt have come valentine's day of course coulda played it off as a heart!

Just move some soil around the base of the stem and look for roots. Most the time I forget about them and see roots coming out the bottom of the pot. If it's been a month you should see some growth under there.

Usually they will be ~4ft when they first flower from seed.

I always have better success cleaning them. Usually I get mold when i dont.

Mulberry will work fine smoking ,be sure to dry it fully and as far as bark goes that's really up to you. Bark on could make a "dirty" smoke and cause off flavors but in some instances it can help flavor. Iv never tried mulberry with bark on but iv smoked bark off pieces before and tasted fine. It's not a super strong smoke. Never used australian pine but I would 100% stay away from ever smoking meat with any pine lol.

Happy Easter!!!! Not sure about everyone else but still trying to find the last 2 eggs.......6 hrs later haha.

I got my dasyblasta cuttings from achetadomestica (sometime 2021) very good fruits! It's funny because mine are flowering at the same time as yours!!! Just took these pics tonight lights were out so pictures are shotty sorry lol. That interesting flavor reminds me of celery alittle bit but it doesnt ruin the fruit they are very sweet and none of that gassy taste some Suriname's have.

Took these pictures tonight

This morning!
