Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Pearl Guava - on sale on Weee
« on: February 21, 2024, 11:21:28 PM »
If anyone is interested in tasting the Pearl guava, I bought some from Weee and it was not bad. I also had the Crystal seedless fruit last year and they are about the same as far as flavor and taste that I can detect. Fruits are large, but the Crystal is seedless so it has that advantage. The Pearl guava is a large fruit so even if you remove the seeds (spoon out), there is a lot of flesh to eat.

I'll post some photos of it compared to a few of my other varieties I have now, the Melon guava and Tropci Pink guava fruits.

Brian, you must have picked them to late. I know if they are over ripe, it isn't good at all, I can't eat it. You should cut/eat it when it is full size, squeeze it and if it gives, pick it and try it, you will like it.

I only had a few bad tasting fruits, and it was because they were over ripe.

Thien, the reason for growing your own white sapote is that some people may sell it but all at the same time since one tree variety will usually ripen close to each other. With 10-20 varieties they may ripe at different months (like mine) so I can eat a few every other month, or at least that is my plan. I have the Selck fruits getting ready in another month, then Redlands, then Smathers, then Younghan's Gold, then Supersweet, then Clytia, etc, so I hope I get fruits for 6-8 months.

That source in near me in Pomana, CA. That tree looks just like the Red Malaysian with the same round fruits.

Yes, I have purchased some things from them. They seem to be ok sellers. If the red malaysian fruits are shape like a pear and are big fruits, I would buy that tree, but I haven't seen anyone growing fruits like that.

I have the Red Malaysian guava from a local store (Home Depot), and the fruit doesn't look like your reference post. The fruit is round like the Malayasian Purple guava.

I think they are the same. I know of another person who has a large tree which fruits a lot, and his Malaysian guava tree has the same shape (round) as mine.

I have not seen any Malaysian type guave with fruits shaped like a pear. They have strong aroma, taste is good, not excellent, and the seeds are many and hard.

That's interesting, I will need to let my Tropic White tree fruit this year. I purchased these trees (Tropic White, Tropic Pink, Vietnamese White, Mexican Cream) to use as rootstock so I only let the Mexican Cream fruit before. This Tropic Pink tree is the larger of the trees I bought, and I didn't notice it had fruits until they got larger. This Tropic Pink grows well so I graft the other new varieties (Crystal, Seedless, Delores, Barbie) on to it.

« on: February 18, 2024, 10:23:22 PM »
ok, good to know. I did see one person who grows a large yellow (smooth skin) variety, and he gave me one fruit to try so I'll see how it is. It's about the size of a goose egg.

I have seeds of the yellow and red lilikoi, so I'll grow both of them and see how they do.

Just asking about the 3 types of lilikoi mentioned in the article. Some people call the P.laurifolia the Jamaican Lilikoi.

=>Jamaican Lillikoi a.k.a Water Lemon Passion fruit (Passiflora laurifolia)

Yup, that makes sense. I went to a CRFG last weekend and we had a speaker who specialized in guavas (LBCC) and the profesor said most nurseries only sell seedling trees and not many graft the true varieties.

I know that all four of my Mexican Cream trees are grafted, I can see the graft union, but they still may be using scion wood from a seedling tree so it may not be true to the variety name. I guess now I need to let all of my small trees I purchaased hold a fruit so I can see if the fruits tastes good. I usually just buy the trees and graft over them. I hope my Delores Red guava from JF holds fruits soon so I can taste it. Also have a seedling tree of the orange flesh guava so I hope it holds the fruit this year. Last year it had flowers but dropped the small fruitlets.

I think I have all three types of the Lilikoi plants. Here's a good summary describing the three types.

If you are growing these passion fruits, can you comment on the taste and which one you like the best. I have not tasted any fruits except when I was in Hawaii many years ago and forgot what they taste like.

Here's the typical fruits on my smaller 5 gallon Mexican Cream trees. I purchased these trees 2 years ago. The shape is similar, but I didn't see any red/pink on the outside of the fruits. These photos are old photos from 2 years ago. Most of my trees in pots have been grafted over with other varieties.

It could be, I have 4 Mexican Cream trees I purchased, but this one was 3-4 years older than the recent trees I purchased. I could have made a label error and it could be a Mexican Cream. When my smaller trees has some fruits, I should be able to compare the fruit to these photos.

Here's the Betty #1 for comparison, it almost looks similar but this one have much more red blush and has larger fruits.





Betty #1 has larger fruits, and it tastes sweeter.

Ok, here's a few photos of the fruit.







The taste is good, not as good as the other unknown red splash (Betty #1) that I found and posted before.

Just wondering if anyone else is growing the Tropic Pink guava. I have a few trees from La Verne nursery and the fruit is not what I expected. I have 3-4 fruits (first fruits) on my tree and they fruit color is white/red blush and the inside flesh color is white.

I thought the Tropic Pink guava has red/pink flesh fruits. If you grow any of this variety and have pink colored flesh, can you post a photo of your fruit.

Here's my previous grafts of Gozp scionwood.

It has been almost one year since I grafted his Yellow Birula and Birula scion wood on my tree. The graft is over 6 ft tall now, I hope it has fruits this year, the size of the branch is large enough to hold the fruits.

His cuttings are fresh, and he has some good varieties.
