Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Mammey seeds germination?
« on: August 23, 2023, 12:08:09 AM »

I was able to plant the seed from a store-bought mamey, husk and all, and it sprouted pretty quickly. Just in a 1gal container with some big box store container mix and left in the gh.

Kaz, the color of your Brewster looks very good - such a deep red to what I see in the stores. Thanks for sharing the taste comparison results. Can you also share a picture of your Brewster tree when you get a chance too?

I canít really comment on how often his page is updated but I did want to also add on to what Nick said and mention that I placed an order last month and everything went smoothly.

Iím looking forward to your taste report, Mark!

Great list here thanks everyone for sharing. I donít think Iíve even tasted 10 mango varieties in my life haha but hope to change that soon. Not many options here at the grocery stores or markets in SoCal.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Show Your Loquat Fruits - 2023

Yes, I want to see how well loquats grow in containers. I have a Kosmic that needs up potting or put it in the ground but running out of yard real states.

On my walk through a small neighborhood community in San Diego I saw this loquat tree in what looks like a 20 gallon pot. It was fruiting and looked pretty good for being in a container. I didnít get a chance to talk to the owner otherwise I would have asked more about it. Hope this helps provide some perspective.

Great list here, Mark!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Cherimoya Pruning Help, tiny trunk
« on: February 27, 2023, 11:39:53 PM »

I agree with Janet. I will include a screenshot of how I would approach it so that it bushes out and up earlier.


I would say using your hands (with gloves on) and scrub the scales off. Depending on the size of your tree it would be easy enough but if you have a large tree I wouldnít recommend it. Also, go after the ants. Iíve found that eliminating or reducing ants in the yard helps to keep other pestsí numbers down as well. But ant bait is $$$.


Can be grafted onto cherimoya?

yes both are compatible


Asian Black cuttings came in great condition and even had some sprouting. Thanks again Luke and GPF!

ēMulberry (Tree)
ēStrawberry (Groundcover)
ēFig (Tree/Shrubby)

Have fun!

Your fruit has plumb skin like a sugar apple.
Itís an atemoya.

AP is also an atemoya.
Its skin is flat like picture below.

Your fruit is not an AP.

I agree with Seannyís assessment!

Hi Raul,

Do you still have seeds available?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: first sugarlata fruit of the 2022 season
« on: August 08, 2022, 11:06:43 PM »
Good looking fruit and taste report, Mike! Did you give your sugarlata a name? The scions you sent me in 2020 are doing okay here in SoCal.


Congrats Kevin! Do you have a plant availability list?

Hey Kaz,

Your fruit looks like AP to me. Hope your scions took 👍🏼


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: How rare or common is this
« on: May 02, 2022, 08:32:19 PM »
I have not noticed more than three petals on atemoya flowers but for what itís worth, Iíve seen several 4-6 petal flowers on cherimoyas, specifically on my fino de jete tree.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is this ElBumpo?
« on: March 31, 2022, 03:03:17 AM »
It does look similar to El Bumpo however here is a picture from the University of California Riverside for comparison. As you can see, the photo has more pronounced protuberances.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Lara Farms tree source
« on: March 20, 2022, 10:23:47 PM »
I also wanted to share that I ordered from Lara Farms after seeing such positive reviews. I am not willing to pay so much for mango trees here in SoCal (sometimes Iíll see prices over $300 for a 15 gallon mango tree but the tree itself is so small) and I do not mind buying smaller trees because Iím playing the long game (donít mind waiting a while before theyíre ready to hold fruit). Anyway, the trees arrived in great condition and are currently acclimating to my yard under the shade. I wanted to share pictures of the shipment in case any one else is looking to purchase from Julian and was curious to see how it all looks. I would recommend Lara Farms to anyone looking for smaller grafted mango trees.


Iíd recommend Pierce, Dr. White, and El Bumpo!

Congrats shmojojojo & thanks Kaz!


Mark - great photos thanks for sharing. I was able to taste Ongís Sour N Sweet and it has an amazing flavor very similar to cherimoya. Its texture is chewy like an atemoya. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to others looking for an atemoya with a cherimoya flavor profile. The only other atemoya I can think of that tastes so similar to cherimoya would be ĎDream.í 

Kaz - scions I purchased from you from this post are doing great. I grafted the Red Himalayan on to an everbearing mulberry rootstock. Itís starting to push new growth but I havenít seen any fruit yet. Picture below for reference. Thanks again 👍🏼
