Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fruit Trees with high ornamental value
« on: November 27, 2022, 06:48:04 PM »
My contorted mulberry is really unusual. This year it finally took off and put out allot of new growth.
Every Winter it loses all its leaves and the contorted branching is exposed.
In the Spring when it flushes it has huge green leaves and looks healthy
After Hurricane Ian this year allot of the branches were damaged and I pruned
the tree and set up about 10 to root. So far 90% are pushing growth.

Hello! Do the Dasyblasta root or do you typically graft them onto something?
I haven't tried to root them yet. Most people graft them onto Suriname cherry

I have 3 white sapotes in the ground that are producing fruit.
Last year I was under 32F for over 5 hours and my trees were
ok. They did not fruit though. After the cold night they flushed new
leaves but not flowers? I am in Florida though and your dewpoint is
different. I would trust someone in your area more

Macadamia will produce better if you have two trees
Beaumont is a self pollinating type if you decide on macadamia.


She has a 7 gallon
Clewiston is a little closer then East coast?

I grow cherimoya here in northern ca zone 9b.
Can cherilata grow here?
Last Winter I was under 32F for 5 hours and I lost a ilama several
atemoyas including a dream, most of my sugar apples burned off
to the roots. The cherilata had dark green leaves and never

The Spring has been the best time for me for grafting annonas
In Florida the annonas usually start coming out of dormancy
in mid February.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: When to take plants in?
« on: November 10, 2022, 07:43:15 PM »
All your young plants should be brought in. I err on the side of caution with all of my plants. Even my citrus are not allowed to experience weather below 40F. I want my plants to grow, mature, and fruit as quickly as possible. Even if temperatures in the 30s would not kill a plant, it could cause it to go dormant. Whereas, my jaboticabas have fresh new growth flushing out even after I've moved them inside for the winter.
I agree, better safe than sorry

What is Tim atemoya? Google search didn't help me much. How does it taste and would atemoya grow true too seeds? Sorry for asking so many questions
Earlier this year I posted a picture of one of my Tim fruits
I got the tree from Fruitscapes and was told it was a new variety from
Australia and that the scions came from a guy named Tim
Since then I have heard different conflicting stories. A couple years
ago a forum member told me that Fruitscapes had determined that
the Tim was an African Pride. When I posted a picture of my fruit
most forum members agreed it was not African Pride. Who knows with
Fruitscapes. It is an atemoya and it won't grow true. I did not hand pollinate
it this year so it did pollinate itself
Here is the old post with a picture

The trunk looks ok to me and the sunlight should be getting shorter and
less intense. I have two smaller trees and mine have never had an issue.
The smallest one I have has come back 2 years in a row from the cold and
has a smaller trunk than yours

Hi Mike!
I have been considering planting one or two Mulberry varieties, but I was wondering about three things:   (1) I would like to have the sweetest Mulberries possible, (2) I don't have much space, so I need to grow these in a 10 gallon pot, and (3) I am in a hot and humid climate.

Are there Mulberry varieties which would fit my three constraints?

BTW, there are a few mulberries here, so I know at least some varieties do grow and fruit.  The ones I have tasted here however are a bit too acidic, I would prefer them sweeter.

Do you have any recommendations?  Thanks!
The sweetest mulberry I have is the white shatoot. I have not been able to root it by cuttings
I am trying to airlayer it now? My tree was grown from a cutting
My tree has gotten very large and not sure how it would do in a 10 gallon pot?
You may have to plant it out and keep replacing it. The sweetest dwarf type
I have is the dwarf everbearing. It has a smaller fruit but is very tasty

I had 5+ hours under 32F last Winter and lost a Haysa,
Morena, Silas Wood.
My makok made it but its on the South side of my house.
Alano gets large but where I am at in 9b they slow down growing
in the Winter and take a while to grow

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Campechiana sapodilla
« on: October 26, 2022, 02:04:02 PM »
I never heard of it?
Campechiana is the species name of canistel   
Label might have gotten mixed up?
Call Charlie at Echo and ask him where the tree came from.
I have bought mislabeled trees from Echo in the past.

I was under 32F last winter for over 5 hours and lost allot of annonas.
My seedling red custard is fine. Also my cherilata and sugarlata which
are reticulata hybrids are also fine. Your tree will be fine.
I ate one custard apple last year and the other 10 dropped during the
freeze. You may have problems getting fruit each year as they ripen in the Spring?

The fruit will lighten up and you will see yellow between the sections
The fruit also softens up but it can seem rock hard in the morning and
be soft the same night
Most of my annona tree's early fruit don't size up and are not the best tasting.
The second year the fruit should improve.
