Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Yangmei (Morella/Myrica rubra) thread
« on: February 04, 2024, 02:17:30 AM »
The tree is the original variety of YangMei.  It can produce fruits but smaller than DongKui and not as sweet as other varieties, but the tree is a lot easier to grow than the other and the successful rate is higher.  I might graft some other varieties to it.

If I have to pick one, ruby seedless.  Both of them are very good.

My favorite guavas.

红宝石芭乐/Taiwan ruby seedless guava
水蜜芭乐/Honey seedless guava.

Honey seedless guava is similar with crystal guava but a little bit softer and sweeter.

* It is self fertile, at least mine is
* Take about 4 months for the fruits mature, the fruits will turn yellow-geen color.  Harvest around February.
* Size about a small green apple if you thin the fruits.

Just curious, how much you pay for your tree?

Here is a picture of my fruits now, I didn't thin the fruits.
