Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Best Squirrel Dog
« Last post by Rispa on Today at 09:40:22 PM »
Brittany spaniel is the next dog I want. The one I know was too chicken to be a hinting dog, so she was sold as a pet. She loved chasing squirrels, but didn't have the instinct to kill, so that would need to be taught. She was quick enough to catch them though.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What kind of avocado?

I agree, it could have had longer to ripen and it was also an early drop. It tasted fine but not the best it can get. I'll probably show a better example once more ripen. Thanks anyways!
This year I started actively picking them Aug 15 when the last of my other mangos were finished. About 10 percent of crop came off the tree before then. Peak season was last week of Aug til Sept 10, but still had several dozen on tree at that point.Looks like I can now count on fruit pretty much the whole month of September from Little Gem. I think I might sometimes get a few fruit into October some years in the future. There  are still some Keitts on trees locally. Any other mangos still hanging in Florida?

Exotica nursery carries a Thai pink which may be similar to these.  I purchased one from Exotica but it has not fruited yet

I recently planted taiwanese pink guava that looks like on your picture. Plant those seeds! My white asian guava fruited on the second year from seed.

I will plant them, hope they come out true.  They are very hard to find here

Hard to tell, it doesnt look very ripe though.  Is it watery?  Either the color in the photo is washed out or the fruit is not ripe.  It kind of looks like a small bacon avocado.  Bacons have the pale flesh.  I just cant really tell from the pics.  If you zoom more on the outside and inside maybe.  But hard to say. 

Theres really not ripe avocados this time of year either other than mexicolas but it doesnt look like that from the pics, but hard to tell also from those photos.

Sorry, I know its not very helpful.

Try waiting until later in winter to pick them.  If it is a bacon, it needs like 6 more months on the tree to get larger and ripen up.
Citrus General Discussion / Re: Citrus macrophylla

Citrus macrophylla is not the most edible Citrus, I wouldn't say it tastes particularly bad, but it doesn't have a clean flavour like lemon or lime.
So far it seems pretty bomb proof, fruit hang on the tree for ages, don't seem to get attacked by anything.
C.macrophylla also seems to be fairly tough plant for rootstock use, and fairly vigorous.
Also I am interested in Papedas overall, so growing a few types even though some aren't the most useful fruit.
( I am in a Citrus growing area, so can get regular fruit types fairly easily most of the time ).
