Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Re: Garlic
« on: September 24, 2023, 09:14:33 PM »
My only garlic plant flowered and turn to black seeds.  What you guys think of growing them from seeds?

Go for it. Garlic greens can be eaten lile chives, so you will get something to eat out of it for sure.

Thank you

Does anyone know what variety of this mango?  Every single mango on the tree has a little bump sticking out at the bottom

Thank you: Janet and Kaz   It is the  first year Saijo giving me fruits after grafted 2 years ago.  I will try to dry them whole "hoshikaki style"  and see how good they taste.

I'm surprised noone mentioned all the hot seedless guava variety on the market. I grow a few of them - Thai ruby seedless guava, Thai seedless, Taiwanese ruby seedless, Taiwanese seedless






Greenpasteur,  can you post a picture of the leaves of the rounded guava fruit in picture#2?  How big is the leaf?  Thanks

Here are two variety on one tree I grafted. The round Taiwanese ruby seedless guava leaves is on the right


It has a very big leaves. Bigger than Taiwanese white seedless

Thank you.  Mine is about a year old growing from seed.  The leaves are very big, wavy, and purplerish in color.  Very nice foliage.  The fruit I got the seeds from looks similar to yours but almost twice as big.  It contains 4-5 seeds

I did get those saijo fruits shown in the photos from Janet who says it is the best. I tasted it when it softened and it was excellent. I usually never like to eat the Hachiya (eat very soft- astringent) but the Saijo was good and I could eat that one soft. I also dehydrated the Saijo and they tasted much sweeter than the Fuyu.

Did you dehydrated Saijo while it was ripen soft or at firm stage?  Thank you

The last time I saw Bradís trees, I was surprised at how well they were growing.  I canít seem to get mine kick started and I live in a similar climate.  I have killed a ton of seedlings and had no luck with air layers.  Iím probably planting them when theyíre too small even though I have them under shade cloth.  Or fertilizing them wrong.  Whatever, Iím going to keep trying because I want raw fingers from peeling so many Brewster lychees. 
Lychees have to be one of the most beautiful trees when full of ripe fruit. Nice haul Spaugh!

I think soil media plays a very big role for growing any kind of trees especially fruit trees.  Brad's land is probably has very fertile soil, consists mainly of granite rocks.  Those rocks have a lots of mineral especially Phosporous which promote root growth and fruit settings.

I am Thai and the Thais enjoy eating this variety green.  Best way to enjoy it is to peel off the skin, cut into wedged shape, and then dip each piece into salt+crush dried chili and little sugar each bite.
You can substitute dried chili with fresh chopped up Thai chili, which is better tasting

yes, air layer works fine like other fruit trees.

Thanks Kaz

Tagging onto this convo, I'm wondering if people have prunus mume scionwood. I'd love to add some varieties onto my kanko bai.

How big are the fruits of your kanko bai?  I am interested in grafting a prunus mume onto my peach tree perhaps to make some Japanese style preserved plum(umeboshi). Thanks

16
Will air layering work on loquat?

Nate, the shape matches some of the Vista White fruits I have seen from nursery and locally. But I'm not sure why some people who grow this variety say the fruit size is small to medium. My fruits are always on the large size. I'll post photo of the I took yesterday of this tree.



Wow the fruits are very big.  How many seeds inside this loquat variety.?  Does any of the loquat variety contain just a single seed?  Friend of mine told me his tree used to have fruits with only one seed from each fruits for years.  Now they have 2 to 3 seeds

Can anyone confirm that pineapple guava can be grafted on regular guava and vise versa?

Doubt it would work. The wood is very different. I don't really see why you would try to graft feijoa to guajava when feijoa is so much more cold hardy, and stout growing. They are straight up bulletproof. My feijoa didn't even blink under snow and weeks of frosty nights, my guajava lost almost 2' of growth during that time.

Now, guajava on feijoa could be interesting, but again, pretty far off wood wise. Feijoa stays wooden whereas guava gets that kinda peeling bark.

I have a limited space.  Besides that I am not too fond with pineapple guava, only can eat a few of the fruits.  It is also not on my must to have lists.

My Persian one just started to wake up a couple of days ago.  My Pakistanian woke up 3 weeks earlier.  They are both on the same tree with Pakistanian rootstock

I started Florida honey tangerine from seed.  It took 10 years to flower and fruit.   This is its 3rd year to fruit.  Fruits are only a third of its parent's size and have lots of seeds.  Flavor was good

It may be two different sources. One is the correct one.

I grow the Persian mulberry, look at my list at the first post which I updated today. I just don't have any fruits yet, but the person who gave me the cuttings says its got the best flavor of all his mulberry. He lives in San Diego and get fruits on his tree, but mine does not have any flowers or fruits yet. Do you grow the Persian?

Yes, a Persian friend gave me a small plant propagated from her tree 2 years back.  It's growing very slow.   Last Fall I took a scion from it and grafted onto a branch of my Pakistan.  The graft is starting to leaf out now.  I heard Persian mulberry supposes to have the best, but create a mess when dropping on the ground since it is extremely juicy

Ana's Siam jumbo fruits look totally different from Janet's.   Nobody grows Persian mulberry in his collections?  No one mentioned this variety

Kaz, since you are growing the most varieties, which of them has the most aroma when eaten?

The thai dwarf is ripening here.  My chickens eat them all though which is fine.  I got the other red himalayan setting fruit this year so I can compare the 2 himalayans.  Should be pretty soon.

I bet the eggs your chickens produced are extremely delicious.  Are they free range?
