We caged the queen and shook the bees into a box with comb and brood.

Yes both are protected with other trees.  Ours in Kissimmee is about 12' tall hasn't fruited we throw a popup canopy over it and wrap the sides with plastic when we have frost in the forecast.

Looking to finally identify this one.  Last year there was a discussion on Facebook about it being mislabeled.  It has grew in size and hopefully we can now get a positive identification.

I have no information to share.  We did plant some seeds last month but I didn't find much info either.  Im going to follow in hopes of learning something new.  No info from the scion provider?

Thanks guys.   We had a really mild winter, Only a few days around freezing temps from what I can remember.  Yes it spent all year outside but we may have covered them.  We try to protect what we can when we can, especially some of the smaller stuff.

He still doesn't understand this is a for sale post and not a discussion post.  Sorry Lance.
Our little tree is growing well in 9b central FL. Purchased last year from HapaJoe
I started a discussion post showing our little tree.

Yes it's possible with the right protection.  My friend in Orlando has a large tree that fruits every year.  My friends mother who lives 1 block over from us has a tree grown from seed that is fruiting for the first time this year.  Protected by the canopy of some large trees only. 

How long do you think these will take to hold fruit?  We have 1 grafted tree growing in the ground for a couple of years that is flowering but hasn't set a fruit yet.  We have a few other seedlings but I don't think those will hold fruit for a few years yet.  Also do you happen to have pictures of the Rosada fruits, Im thinking this might be the same variety we already have, but was sold as a Red ilama.

You were talking with Mike at TreesNMore.  You might ask him, I know he did some grafting about 2 years ago for another seller.  He might have some available though. 

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Loquat about to flower?

Estee loquat grafts appear to be pushing blooms.  We were one of the lucky ones to get a scion from Kaz last year.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ?? Isan Indigo crossed with Geffner ??
« on: July 04, 2024, 05:30:25 PM »
I traded for this on the forum, Actually for a few of these but ended up getting only one.  Here it is holding a fruit but looks like a regular sugar apple to me.  Has anyone else fruited this cross? 

Rollinia can fruit in a pot.  I had 1 in a 15 gallon pot holding a few fruits last week.

how many do you need and do you need them shipped?  I might know a lady that has some but she is in central Florida. 

My seeds started to germinate in less than three weeks!
Thanks again, Mick.
Let me know if you have an extra one you are willing to sell or trade Turtle.  I missed the boat on these and by the time I seen it, Mick was unable to accept payment.  I would like to add one of these to my collection.  Thanks in advance. 

We got a good take on our scions.  1 even grafted to our grafted San Pablo in the ground.  It is growing the fastest.  Hopefully we get some flowers later in the year and I will pollinate it.  Grafted to Pond apples and cherimoya rooststocks.  I'll double check tomorrow for sure about the cherimoya takes for you Kaz.

I would like to see pictures also, can you just add them to the post?

Thanks Ryan.  Thats what im trying to figure out what a good rootstock for grafting garcinias would be.  Most of them grow slow. 

Can anyone tell me if Garcinia Kola would be a good rootstock to graft other garcinias too?

We have some in Central Florida.  Already growing those other 2, but I'd be willing to trade for something else if you have anything else.

Can it be used as rootstock for other garcinias?

We have some smaller trees we purchased for grafting purposes.  Largest one is maybe 5 ft tall down to about a ft tall seedlings we had.  Younghans was one of the larger ones and It is maybe 10ft tall but like I said it doesn't grow much.  We had Redlands and suebell grafted on that tee also but one of the grafts ended up dying this year for some reason, Im not sure which one it was that died.

Which are your favorites?  We bought Vernon from you before but we didn't get any to take.  Im starting to think WS doesn't like central Florida.  We do have a Younghan and a Marylane we were able to graft but they don't grow very much.
