Tropical Fruit Discussion / Variation of Lucs Garcinia
« on: June 14, 2021, 08:25:22 PM »
I have admittedly limited experience with this garcinia. However I have noticed that among my trees there is a good deal of variation. Some trees have long pointed leaves, while others have wider more squat shapes. Additionally, new foliage varies from light pink to a rich red. All of these trees have been grown from seeds provided by Raul and Luc.

Has anyone else noticed this variation? How does this correspond to variation in fruit?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Growing Mangosteen in greenhouse in SoCal
« on: April 04, 2021, 03:48:52 PM »
For the past few years I've flirted with the idea of trying to fruit G. Mangostana in-ground here in San Diego 10a. (Vista/Bonsall area). While all my other garcinias have done well unprotected, I think it would be exceedingly difficult, if not impossible, to achieve the right conditions over the necessary 20-year period outdoors for mangosteen.

Here are the challenges I see:
  • They need major cold protection. We get rare overnight colds snaps that dip as low as 30F, with average lows in the low 40Fs.
  • They need heat protection. We get occasional heat waves that go as high as 107F, with average highs in the 80Fs/90Fs.
  • They need humidity control. We get annual Santa Ana winds that drop RH below 10%.

Luckily, we are planning to install a large permanent greenhouse on our new property where, given the right systems, I hope we should be able to mitigate the worst of our climate's limitations for this ultra tropical white elephant.

Am I considering the right constraints? If so, does anyone have experience creating this type of environment in a greenhouse in SoCal? Specifically:
  • Heating system to maintain winter lows above 55F
  • Cooling system to limit summer highs to 90F
  • Humidity control system maintain keep an average RH of ~80%

Some specifics about the property where greenhouse will be located:
  • Zone 10a, sunset 23
  • Mostly E aspect, with some NW
  • Gently sloping, downhill. Neighbors with same topography report light frost every 6 years or so.
  • Well draining, fine sandy loam, neutral ph
  • Gets cool daily breeze from the Pacific Ocean through the San Luis Rey River basin.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / PMs not being delivered
« on: April 02, 2021, 11:02:12 AM »
I have now experienced several instances of PMs not being delivered by the forum. On each occasion I sent a PM to different users, who, upon follow up, each reported they never received the first.

Is anyone else experiencing something similar?

Does anyone know anything about this variety? I asked Quang and he said these came from his farm in Fallbrook. He mentioned they have mostly no seeds, with size similar to emperor. He said the flavor was "very sweet and complex".

« on: December 06, 2020, 11:47:52 AM »
We all know about No Mai Tsze (糯米糍)but has anyone sampled/grown the other popular varieties from Guangdong/Fujian?

  • Gui Wei(桂味)- Supposedly has floral osmanthus and cinnamon notes. Superior to No Mai Tsze1
  • Xian Jin Feng (仙进奉) - Almost twice as large as top-tier Guangdong varieties2 with excellent flavor
  • Gua Liu (挂绿)- “Hanging green” Incredibly rare, reported to be the best tasting, some fruit recently sold at auction for $85,000!!3
