Tropical Fruit Discussion / Eugenia ID

I found this one fruiting in my yard and can't remember where the seed came from. Any ideas on what this is? Thanks.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Langimer or Langra Mango?
« on: September 17, 2021, 10:36:00 PM »
I got a scion of a mango that was labeled "Langrimer" and it produced it's first fruit, but I have not found any information on it, could this be a "Langra" mango.

The fruit is sweet, no fiber with a strong piney taste at the skin.

Does anyone have any information about these varieties?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Unusually shaped mango fruitlet
« on: April 16, 2021, 10:38:27 PM »
Being close to the ocean in southern California it's tough to find mangoes that fruit well here, a lot of them get plenty of fungus and other issues. This "Thom Pi Kan" mango is one of hundreds of fruitlets setting on the tree. Others that are doing good this season are "Edwards", "Dot", "Orange Sherbert", "Sweet Tart", and "Peggy", all of the other varieties are either not blooming or got real affected by powdery mildew.


I'm in need of some scion wood of bigger Cainito fruit, like the Asian varieties, either of purple or green or both. I don't want scion wood from seedlings, only grafted or air layered plants or a tree that is fruiting already. So if you have a big tree that can handle losing some pencil sized scions I'm willing to pay. I know Frankies in Hawaii has a nice big purple cultivar. So if you live over there and can buy some from him, then I would pay you for your work to obtain some.

Thanks, Mark

This tree won't stop giving! I've got seeds from a real good tasting Pitomba, they have an Apricot taste.

$2 per seed plus $3 shipping.

Cedar bay cherry seeds for $1 each plus $3 shipping.

Sorry only for sell to USA buyers.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Ross Sapote grafted to Chico Sapote?
« on: March 16, 2020, 10:04:14 PM »
Has anyone had success grafting the Ross to the Chico? I have plenty of Chico seedlings but would rather have Ross. I know Canistel would accept Ross.


I went to Ong's Nursery today to drop off a big stalk of Vietnamese bananas and was surprised at some real nice trees and fruit he's got going. He calls the red atemoya. "Ong Ruby" Atemoya.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sea Grape
« on: September 26, 2019, 10:36:04 PM »
Does anyone have any experience growing Seagrape in California? I had them in Hawaii and this one has been outside and just flowered for the first time. Any chance of fruit?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Paul Thomson Mango
« on: September 26, 2019, 10:35:12 PM »
I just harvested one of the Paul Thomson's mangoes that I grafted a few years ago, it is from his old place in Vista, it is one of the favorites of the gardeners that now work there. It is very sweet with a bit of piney flavor. Not sure of the name since most info is gone from the old orchard.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango ID wrong cultivar?
« on: September 05, 2018, 07:59:45 PM »
I received this budwood a few years ago in Southern California here from a member saying that it was "Kesar". Obviously it's not. Does anyone have any ideas? Keitt? I'm on the very southern coast of California and it is by far the largest mango I have grown so far because of our mild summers.


I have a limited amount of seeds right now, as the fruit is ripening I will have more. Sales only to USA addresses.

Price is $2 per seed, minimum 5 seeds, plus $2 shipping.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Melon from southern mexico ID
« on: September 04, 2018, 10:54:53 AM »
Does anyone know what this melon is from Mexico? it is red inside. It is unlike the kiwano.

5 seeds for $10 plus $2 shipping. Only available for sale to USA addresses. Fruit is similar in growth to Australian Beach Cherry or Cedar Bay Cherry. Withstands probably down to high 20's. Taste is similar to Beach Cherry also, it is mild and fruits after about 3 years.


I have fresh Pouteria lucuma seeds for sale. The price is $3 each minimum 3 plus $3 shipping in US. Sorry no sales outside of US.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lychee small seed variety
« on: August 08, 2018, 02:48:58 PM »
So, the lychee tree I have which I think is Brewster is giving me an awesome percentage of chicken tongue seeds.

I went out today and noticed my first and largest Jackfruit had fallen. I was wondering if this is the right size and color for a ripe "Golden Nugget"? I't's been on the tree over a year, and in California.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Choloric Peanut Butter fruit flowering
« on: July 10, 2018, 11:08:37 PM »
I've drenched this this with iron, added cottonseed meal and even lowered the PH of stored rain water. It is slowly starting to green up, but it is flowering profusely now. I'm hoping the flowers form into fruits. I've only got a few fruit to mature the last few seasons. Any ideas.

I've had this outside for a few years in a pot and have it marked as Vangueria edulis. Can anyone confirm this is the "Spanish Tamarind"


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Surniame Cherry from Jim Neitzel
« on: June 12, 2018, 11:15:41 PM »
Jim, said he bought this tree at Walter Andersons nursery in San Diego some 20 years ago and said it was labeled as Eugenia Smithii, I know there is not a species "Smithii" so it must be a variety. The leaves are thicker and bigger than any other Unifloras I've come across. The fruit is large and are black as "black star' and "Zill's dark". The taste at maturity does not have any resinous or bad after taste.
