Tropical Fruit Discussion / is Del Rio a good Peach?
« on: June 28, 2022, 10:17:41 PM »
these are just ripening for us and they have been amazing- so juicy and sweet only trouble is keeping the birds off em

I am considering putting in another tree and doing some multigrafting

are peaches just much better ripened one the tree? is Del Rio a good cultivar?

digigarden is a user here who was selling seeds and may have had the fruit

guess my only hope is the lack of humidity killed your guys then

Flowers and fruits being different leads me to believe they would be different species but I too am new to this compared to Adam-

Phenotypes are not the best ways to identify new species though and it would be really great to get some genetic sequences on these

All will go on their own rootstock except mangostana- I will try that one on kola

I thought intermedia and brasiliensis were the lemondrop mangosteen and superior lemondrop mangosteen respectively-

I am not an expert but FLNative on here sells them as 2 different fruits and they definitely were distinct when I got them from him

To clarify-

I have all of these plants and am looking for scions from a mature fruiting (preferably hermaphroditic but I'll take what I can get) tree in order to decrease the amount of time to fruit

I have a small lucs I can ship to youI had imbe seeds but they are all sold.
Id suggest looking for g.hombroniana- its my favorite garcinia fruit! Ive been fortunate to eat around 8 different types of garcinias lol I have to brag coming from someone who lives in TN!
Ive stayed away from the genus somewhat as they are slow growing and some are ultra tropical!
I believe its been renamed to celebica and is on the list  :P

Hey All-

Due to my recent interaction with NissanVersa and his amazing G. brasiliensis fruit I am actively on the hunt for budwood for the Garcinia species below-

G. acuminata
G. brasiliensis
G. celebica
G. humilis
G. indica
G. kola
G. sp. "Lindero"
G. livingstonei
G. macrophylla
G. mangostana
G. sp. "Mandrono"
G. vleerackeii
R. aristata
R. sp. - this is the unlabeled one from Fruit and Spice Park in Miami if anyone wants to go snip

Hey all-

I think he is probably too busy/bashful to share on here but I want to give a shoutout to NissanVersa who now has a fruiting Garcinia brasiliensis here in Houston.

It is grafted budwood on brasiliensis stock in an Air pot, I'll have to get a picture of the plant soon. The second year after grafting it has held fruit and he was kind enough to share one with me.

Needless to say this has massively increased my interest in grafting Garcinia- does anyone have good resources? NissanVersa used a cleft

Great website!

one quick note!  the banner at the top reads

Fresh exotic rare seeds from around the world ship direct from our Califotnia USA location.

I assume you have not seceded and formed the republic of Califotnia  :P

Loquat jam is bomb-

1:1 by weight with sugar of your choice

I think they are also dioecious, so you'd have to buy at least 5 to get that rare female.

They are- not sure why you think you would need 5 though

1 plant = 1/2 shot of no female
2 plants = 1/4 chance of no female
3 plants = 1/8 chance no female

and so on, unless you know something that says males are more common than females?

Another positive is it ripens in the Winter

This is their biggest advantage to me, a nice change up from regular persimmons and there is not a lot that ripens in winter

our chickens have eaten probably 50x their monetary value in seedlings and dug up or destroyed twice as much

they should be slightly soft to the touch like a peach- okay to pick fallen fruit too

Unless he is willing to protect it every year I think container grown is the way to go

Received my plants in fabulous condition and record time-

if you like plastic bag method that should be fine-

100% vermiculite

Garcinia have notoriously long taproots, and are susceptible to damage during transplant-

If you want to try it still the best plan is to try to remove the entirety of the tree with soil and move it

my standard PSA-

100% vermiculite

Also with these, patience.

« on: June 14, 2022, 05:09:36 PM »
I am definitely not the expert on this forum bit IIRC Eugenia do not show the same cross-species ease in grafting that appears to be observed with many other genus-

I know of at least one anecdote where different varietals of CORG do not graft well and they are, presumably, the same species
