Citrus General Discussion / Re: Noble Juicy Crunch Tangerine

I'll add my 2 cents to the discussion. Btw not sure I've tasted this variety or not, but it looks good.

The issue isn't just the chemical farming, it's also that they've been growing in these grove/orchard style monoculture row crop methods for far too long with the same genetics being grown. This creates super pest and pathogens able to withstand all of the pesticides, insecticides, germicides, fertilizers etc and these leach into our water tables and we all know what that brings..

The major problem here is that we used the same grafted varieties over and over and expected it to get better.

Maybe there should be some kind of benefit given by the states to farmers whom attempt growing from seed and/or polyculture. This benefits the entire industry. But that probably isn't going to happen. Not in our lifetime at least.

Seeds were extremely fresh when I got them! Would buy again for sure. Hopefully they pop up soon!

Seeds look real fresh. I think I'll just place them in the fridge for 1-2 months and then plant them in big pots. I heard they don't like to be transplanted.

Got mine! Thanks again Ryan! Good luck everyone on germination. I personally never tried to germinate these. I'll go with the cold stratification method and see what I get.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / PV Fruiting Season

Good day everyone,

Just curious if anyone here has any information on the fruit season in Puerto Vallarta Mex. Particularly November-December months. I plan on visiting and it would be cool to know what fruit to look for. Thank you!

This is easily my favorite forum to be in. Just for the mere fact I may be able to acquire a specimen I never knew existed. It gives a person access to plants that may never be seen in their markets at home and I love that. I also have learned so much about tropical fruit here.
Definitely a fruit tree hoarder, but long term, when I build up my farm and all of my collection is put down in the ground and producing I will most definitely return the love and offer any and all to the community. Whether that'd be freebies, barter/trade or sales. I want to provide new genetics to the fruit tree community just as much as I want to acquire them.

What's the germination rate for Yangmei?

Sorry to hear that Jabba. We got ripped up as well in North Port. Luckily only some of my rare collection were affected, but my banana fences are gone and a lot of down fruit trees. Hope Pine island is back to normal soon because that's my go to for fresh fruit being so close to me. Hope everyone on the island is in good health. Cheers.
