Nothing grows well under an oak. The oak roots suck up all the nutrients. Those citrus are likely root stock citrus like sour orange which do great.

I found wild oranges that are slightly sour or very slight poncirus taste but still edible growing disease free and healthy. I took seeds and have two babies growing. It fits the description of the best orange poncirus hybrid forget the name but supposedly decent fruit. Sugar bell does ok not perfect but good enough. Netting it will keep it disease free until it gets too big for the net (the ones specially sold for greening). I never considered citrus high maintenance prior to greening being an issue. Maybe some neem oil once in a while.

Root stock oranges like swingle grow really well with no disease but the fruit isn't worth eating though with a little cross breeding could be good maybe cross with sugar bell. Lemons are supposed to resist greening so meyer lemon on a good root stock should last for many years before greening gets it.

Planted the seeds out last week. Dug one up out of curiosity and seeds are still viable.

Iffy, There are 2 kinds of papaya tastes, one with the puke aftertaste and one without. You might need to find out which one your friend's mother likes. Most of them have the puke aftertaste. The Hawaiian sunset/sunrise don't and those are the ones I could eat. :)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Would GOOD sugar apple seeds float??
« Last post by Epicatt2 on Today at 05:38:58 PM »
Just FWIW . . .

I did the paper towel / ziploc baggie thing with some sugarapple seeds, but moistened the seeds and toweling using diluted 3% H2O2 to gently sterilize the seeds and kill any mold spores.  (The peroxide breaks down quickly, leaving behind only water.) 

Seemed to work fine and my seeds germinated without having to change the paper toweling.

Kumquats and fingerlimes do best from what I know.

If I remember correctly, they are closely related in the Citrus family.

Wake that Pickering up Carbo! Too much dry will not be good for flowering and fruit set. Afraid this has occurred with our m. casturi. Watering it periodically now to wake it up. Can't flower if too dry. Can see it in the shape and feel of the leaves.

Have started watering all of our mango trees.
