Tree has been in the ground a few years now




Beautiful tree, is it from seed?

I would assume so, bought it from a seller on eBay a few years back

Been a while since I updated this but most trees are still alive and kicking. The changsha and citrange are long gone.

Yuzu in ground hit around 7' this year and had to be pruned back to fit in hoophouse




Xie Shan produced around 5 fruits and is still going strong





Citremon is taking off under protection and citrumelo is doing fine completely unprotected

What is the fingered-fruit?

Those are Citremons! They vary between looking like bumpy Satsuma/Meyer lemons to looking like Buddha's hand citron.

Those are cool looking. Still waiting for my tree to flower. Thing is getting huge but nothing yet

Is anyone growing this or has fruited it? If so, is there any use for the fruit or is this more of an ornamental species?

What's the secret to germinating v.parviflora? I've failed twice but third times a charm

No fruits yet but started flowering last year, pic below is how big it was when it started pumping out buds. Itís definitely possible, idk if theyíre on the forum but an Instagram friend produced soursop in their apartment in Ukraine




Looks great, how old is your tree? My largest one is almost 2 feet started from seed from Lance back in February. They grow so fast.  I plan on putting in the ground eventually but want to overwinter it for its first winter.

probably around 8 year mark

Nick, how long have u had that tree? Any flowers yet?

I believe three years now, purchased as a grafted tree.

Unfortunately no flowers yet

10
I currently have a jackfruit tree in a pot within that 30 gallon range




11
annonas, Eugenias, citrus, figs, peanut butter fruit, guavas

12
I wish I could kick it in the greenhouse in the winter, itíd be a nice escape. You should see how I have to water this thing. Hose nozzle on jet settings and aim thru all the trees trying to water everything in the back. And thatís just whatís in the greenhouse. Easily have another 100 trees and seedlings in the actual house








13
OMG, and I thought MY greenhouse was full!
Your plants look like they are ready to break thrpugh the roof and escape...
 ;D

Oh itís packed to the max lol my greenhouse only serves two purposes storage in the winter and nursery for seedlings in the summer

This is how it started out a couple weeks ago




And now even more packed than this




14
Took care of that a couple weeks ago even tho we barely just got our first light frost the other day. Just wanted to get it over with and be able to relax for the year. Also that time of the year where I come to the conclusion that I have way too much shit. Actually leaving some plants out this year and not saving them. Hit 37-38 the other night but goin up to 80 tomorrow, jersey weather has become bipolar over time lol




Cecropia tree unfazed by the low temps




15
Currently picking strawberry guavas. Do these things tend to make larger fruit the older/bigger the tree gets? Cause these fruit are tiny but thereís a ton

How recent was your purchase? I believe that seller has two shipping locations, Portugal and Florida. I received an order this month that came in two separate deliveries like a week apart.

I ordered a plant off ebay from some far away land one time.  A few weeks went by after I got it.  Then an officer from the USDA showed up at my house to confiscate it!

same, USDA was all over my finger lime straight from Australia lol

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

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
