UPDATE#2: Just as a further update and since I earlier reported that I was out of the race this year because the cuttings that I received I thought had all turned brown and died, but . . . . .

Today, just by accident, I found two that, while they had turned mostly brown, have gone ahead and popped a node and are growing — Halla-Loo!

But because these two are only now just getting started and are so behind all the rest of the folks in this competition that for me to compete at all then it would have to be next year –maybe.

Nonetheless it is heartening to have discovered that these two survivors, tardy though they may be, are growing after all! 

Wow — What survivors!!

Cheers!

Any more updates on the rooted cuttings?

I have some bad news on my large vine, it died, probably to much stress when I cut it back so much. Or it could have gotten broken in the main trunk area and I didn't see it. Either way, my large vine is dried up and dead now so my Pomelo can grow strong again.

Lucky for me I had the 2-3 cuttings I started in water to show how to root them so I can start over with those plants now.

So, hope your cuttings are doing well, you may be the only one to have this unknown variety and can give it a name when it has the first fruit, hopefully next year.

Here's the cutting. I was sick with covid for the first time ever so was not able to water anything for 10 days, it's still alive lol. The smaller one not pictured looked almost too dry, but I watered it and it should make a full recovery. I lost a few plants, or appear to have lost some. My mexican guava, pineapple guava, some cherimoya, and some random citrus look a little dead.





not to go off topic but my guava did no fair too well not being watered all that time.
when i bought it, it was labeled mexican guava. but after 2 years the fruit is still disgusting, so im not too mad as the fruit tastes like rotten tomatoes.

i chopped it back pretty heavily, so if it resprouts I will probably graft over it with something better.
