Madridje, I recommend you check out Simonís great thread on the subject http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=23124.0

It depends on the area. Iíve got a couple of acres in Vista (10a, sunset 23) where we have very mild winters. Lychee and other frost sensitive plants grow well. Perhaps they donít thrive as much as they would elsewhere though. The property next to mine has several mature mangos @ ~20ft tall that are quite productive for them.  Since we are marginal for mangos, Iím sure they would need some protection during our rare cold snaps.

What a tragedy. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Beautiful trees! Iíve reserved several spots in my orchard for ST. Itíll be a few years before they are large enough to fruit though

Is there anyone willing to part with some of their seeds? We donít have nearly as much access to plant material here in SoCal.

I leave them because passion fruit vines are vigorous enough to outgrow any insect damage. The butterflies are good pollinators too!

Wtb coconut cream, m-4, or sugarloaf mango seeds. Shoot me a PM with your price, I am highly motivated!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Variation of Lucs Garcinia
« on: June 14, 2021, 08:25:22 PM »
I have admittedly limited experience with this garcinia. However I have noticed that among my trees there is a good deal of variation. Some trees have long pointed leaves, while others have wider more squat shapes. Additionally, new foliage varies from light pink to a rich red. All of these trees have been grown from seeds provided by Raul and Luc.

Has anyone else noticed this variation? How does this correspond to variation in fruit?

Quang is an agronomist and very reputable. He has a larger farm out in fallbrook where his mother trees are. I canít speak to this particular variety, but he is one of the better sources for rare trees here in SD. I have one of his seedless lychee selections that might hold fruit this year.

My small seedlings have taken 39 with no issue.

Quick update on my trees and grafts:

Trees:
1 dongkui- dead ☠️
1 dongkui - buds have begun pushing both above and below graft
1 biqi - dead above graft, pushing below graft
1 biqi - still green above/below graft but no swelling

M. Californica grafts:
3x biqi - dead
3x dongkui - green and swelling, not pushing new growth yet.

I definitely think harvesting scions from the trees slowed things down. In retrospect I should have let the biqi do its thing since it was the healthiest.

21
I stand by what I said, your results are incredible Simon!

22
Quick update on my trees: One of my Dongkui seems to be dying back further, itís probably on its way out. Luckily, I noticed two small green buds appear on the rootstocks of my other Dongkui and Biqi. Hopefully the roots will continue to grow and they will start to push above the graft.

Master Simon, do you recommend keeping the rootstock growth at this stage?

23
Simon and Richard, that is some really encouraging growth. I hope that they continue to thrive!

As for my 4 trees, my results have been less exciting:
* 1 dongkui - died back to just above the graft, rootstock is still green
* 1 dongkui - green with no new growth
* 2 biqi - green with tiny buds, but not pushing.

After a week in high humidity, I wrapped each tree. They remain in ambient light with ~60% rh at 70-75 degrees.

I grafted 3 of each variety onto M. Californica and Iím seeing some swelling in each of the grafts except one biqi which looks a bit dried out. Iím actually hoping they slow down a bit since I want the grafts to heal more before they push. These are in part sun.

Shane,

You have a gorgeous garden! That white sapote looks really happy. Which variety is your favorite?
