Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: $2500 for seedlings

People do that on eBay when they're out of stock to stop people purchasing. That way they save on relisting fees.

I highly doubt thatís the case they have an absurd amount of outrageous listings with Etsy saying theyíre in stock

Tropical Fruit Discussion / $2500 for seedlings
« on: September 29, 2023, 11:09:59 PM »
Was browsing Etsy last night, which one of you is selling Eugenia seedlings for $2500 and 2 inch annona seedlings for $700?! Not trying to knock the hustle but goddamn

Nick,

Is it known wheter this species is self-fertile or . . . ?

I'm sure it's unlikely, but is there any sense of this species' cold tolerance?

And lastly, what does it taste like?

Trying to decide if I want to try one of these.

Honestly not too much information out there on this one. I would believe it to be self fertile but donít quote me on that. Thereís an older thread on here in regards to deceptrix and itís says it was found 1600 ft above sea level and tastes similar to soursop


Grafted temoylata added

nice looking graft! is that 47-18?

Thanks Mike, I think temoylata is interchangeable with 47-18 and red geffner or do I have that wrong ?

I may be wrong but I believe a temoylata is any atemoya x reticulata not just specific to 47-18Ö

4-5 was a temoylata too I think..Priestly atemoya x  Fairchild Purple reticulataÖMaybe Har could confirm.

ahh gotcha interested to see what that other variety looks like, sounds like it would look pretty cool

I wouldnít sweat temps in the 50s. I left a big sabara in a pot wrapped with some frost cloth out in high 20s and it was fine. I keep all my jabos in my greenhouse that regularly goes into the mid 30s
Have you gotten fruit off your jabos? Are they thriving or merely surviving? You're further north than I am (I'm in 7B). Don't know the kind of microclimate you have, but it's encouraging to hear that you're able to get them going in Jersey.

I just got my first fruit on a red I picked up this year. No fruit on the sabara yet, been waiting years

I keep 4 trees in one pot that are in desperate need for a repotting. Theyíve definitely experienced mid 30s in my greenhouse with no problems. Two of the trees briefly flowered for the first time this year after growing from seed 3 yrs ago



Could you post a photo of the whole plant?

interesting because it definitely looks like there's some kind of "disruption" in the cambium in the way that warps, is the tree otherwise healthy?

Was there something wrapped around that area of the tree at some point?

Anybody know what this tree might be missing? Tried growing lemon drop from seed and it did horrible always chlorotic leaves. I bought a larger established tree and itís first flush of new growth, same situation




Been a month since I previously posted these leaves. Definitely still not looking great and are starting to push new growth again. Any ideas?

After a bad heat wave a couple years ago here in Seattle in the middle of our dry season, many huge (30+ year old) monkey puzzle trees in my neighborhood died pretty quickly like that. So I would guess heat stress? Has it been hotter than usual lately? I know they don't love the heat.

Had one or two heatwaves this season and dealing with mid 90s all this week. Last year we had a drought but itís been raining a ton this year

Anybody know what might be going wrong with my monkey puzzle tree? Tree is Atleast a decade old and has been doin fine until this year and more than half the trees branches have gone brown in the past couple months and is getting worse. Thought it might be the bananas in the back shading it out a little from one direction but cleared some away to open up some light

which vasconcellea is that in the first pic?

Just noticed some fruit and flowers on the red Jabo I picked up from Kevin earlier this year

Nick were you able to get flowers from your Wonderful pom? My Russian26 finally made fruits from those late blooms. These are the bigger ones, I guess they will hang on until Novemeber or whenever we get a hard freeze. Should I assume they will be damaged at 28F like most fruit? I tasted some of the arils of a fruit that was knocked off and while it was acidic I didn't detect bitter or tannins so even if these do not ripen fully I can still use them.

Sorry for the blurry images, they are stills from a video






Nice ! Nothin on the wonderful unfortunately or any of my other varieties. Just a ton of flowers and some fruit set on my dwarf ornamental plant
