Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is this white sapote ripe in June?
« on: June 25, 2022, 03:12:55 PM »
My white sapote fruits ripened in Sept-October but you should be able to tell when they are ripe by just softly squeezing the fruit. If it gives then pick it and let it finish ripening on the counter. I had some green fruits that were large, picked them and just let it sit on the counter for 2-3 days until it got a little soft, tastes great even if the skin is still green color.

Here's a ripe green fruit (1.2 lbs) that dropped from the tree (9/11/21)

Mike, $40 a cutting.

Just cut back more mulberry branches from my large trees.

I have the following cuttings for sale:
1. Shangri La, $3 each [Limited]
2. Red Himalayan, $5 each
2. Australian Green, $5 each [Limited]
3. White Pakistan/Saharanpur local, $5 each
4. Shipping, $10, USPS priority mail, small flat rate box.

Cutting diameter will range from 1/4"-1/2" x 6" long with 2-4 nodes.

Only the Black Pakistan, Thai Dwarf and Shangri La can be rooted, the other two should be grafted since it will not root easily.

Send me a PM if interested or have questions. I only take Paypal.
No Newbies, must be a forum member for more than 6 months.

Sale is for lower 48 states...

So far, we have potentially 2 entries that might be a winner, only 6 days left.

I have volkamer rootstock (large tree now) and it doesn't look that much like yours. I will need to take a few photos of the leaves to compare.

I have a macrophylla rootstock on my lemon tree and the new growth looks similar to yours.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Anyone tried Ed's Delight loquats?
« on: June 21, 2022, 10:11:40 AM »
I tasted Chrismas and Angelino/Argelino but my Ed's Delight did not have any fruits this year (grafted branch). Chrismas tastes very good, fruit size was medium, sweetness of 15 brix.

Here's the number of members who have their anniversary on June 2019, 2020, 2021.

Kevin, need to be in month of June 2019, but if no one post for June by the last day of June, then I will say the closest date to June 1st will get it. That will be for all three years (1st yr, 2nd yr, and 3rd year) so we will have 3 winners if no one registered on June.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Wanted: Passion Fruit Cuttings
« on: June 20, 2022, 02:40:13 PM »
I have a P. incarnata vine in my yard if you want to buy some cuttings. They seem to root from cutting, the vine grows fast and big. You should be able to buy other varieties from Kevin Jones, I got mine from him already rooted, he has many varieties.

I have a multi-grafted tree on Lisbon lemon tree (old big one, 30yrs) since I did not have many large citrus trees when I started to graft new varieties from CCPP budwood. So,my lemon tree has about 30+ varieties on it and the fruit seems to taste good. Maybe it does affect the taste of sumo since the other shiranui grafts on my lime tree, grapefruit tree, Gold Nugget, and pomelo trees seems to taste sweeter than the sumo on my large lemon tree. It doesn't seem to change the sweetness on the Xie Shan, Ponkan, and New Zealand lemon. Maybe next season I should be able to tell if the sumo on the lemon tree is still not as sweet as the other rootstock.

Seedless Lisbon, large fruit, good juice. Skin is not thin, but normal thickness (1/8" small fruit, 1/4" large fruit).

This is my way to "pay it forward" to the Loquat lovers out there.

I'm doing this giveaway so those who do not have a Peluche can get a Free cutting to graft onto their tree. This will be the last free Peluche giveaway for the year (my grafted tree can't be cut any more this year).

This loquat cutting will be from my grafted tree that is a proven Peluche with the large orange flesh fruits. The origin of my Peluche is from two sources: Adam (Flying Fox Fruits) and Adam Karsten (AKME Gardens). My tree has fruited for 2 years, currently has many large green fruits on them now. I did a taste comparison to my other varieties and this year I gave it a taste rating of 8 out of 10 (best).

Here's the free contest rules:  IF YOU WON A PREVIOUSLY PELUCHE OR HAVE A PELUCHE TREE THEN DO NOT ENTER THIS CONTEST, LET SOMEONE ELSE WIN:
=> Updated rules for contest, see below info 6/24.

1. Anyone who will be a 1 year forum member this month (June 2022) can post below and will get a free cutting.
2. Anyone who will be a 2 year forum member this month (June 2022) can post below and will get a free cutting.
3. Anyone who will be a 3 year forum member this month (June 2022) can post below and will get a free cutting.
4. Only the first person for each anniversary year (1, 2 & 3) that post below will win a Peluche cutting.

=> You must post "This is my 1st year (2nd year, 3rd year) anniversary month"

5. I will confirm the winner below for each year (1, 2, 3), and when I do, send me a PM and you will need to pay for shipping cost.

GOOD LUCK to the Three winners.

-> Update on the Peuche fruit size. I got a photo showing a whopper Peluche this year of 120 grams from beicadad.

Ok, my green sapote is not for sale, already taken/reserved for purchase now.
Sorry Pouteria_fan.

victory66, glad you found the info helpful.

Pau, that's great news to hear your grafts did well.

If you want to try grafting the Red Himalayan, do it this month before it gets to hot, otherwise wait until next spring to try again. This time, let me know the size of your rootstock so I can try to match the diameter of the scionwood better.

I'm still grafting mulberries and the grafts are doing well. I usually graft from March - October for loquats, mulberry, longan, citrus, guava.

21
Yes, that will work but make sure your rooted WB is growing for at least 6 months before trying to graft anyting. The roots still may not be strong so grafting to soon can kill your WB. Waiting 1 year for your rooted cuttings is best.

Here's some photos of the shangri la / black pakistan (?) I rooted a few years ago with photos for your info.










22
vnomonee, thanks for the additional details. Now I know to look at the flower for the next few days and see if it got fertilized and will hold fruit.

23
I think you should have no problem rooting the others you mention above. Also Tice will root from cutting.
World's Best/ Thai Dwarf is the easiest to root and grow, gets tons of fruits (not the sweetest taste).

24
FYI, these mulberry varieties will not root, or at least I have not had any success with rooting them.
1. White Pakistan
2. Australian Green
3. King Shahtoot/Saaranpur local
[all above have the same size/taste fruits]
4. Red Himalayan
5. Persian (morus nigra)

Most of the other varieties should root from cuttings.

25
You should check in with Kevin Jones, he is grafting some of the white pakistan/australian green plants for sale.

If you can't find any in the next 2-3 months then contact me, I may have some small grafted plants ready to ship. I plant to graft a few for people that can't graft, or just want one that is already grafted and growing.
