Hey Bryan,
How long from flower to fruit. I have several canistels. All of them from 2 to 4 years old. Any tips on fertilizer and lighting?

Ruby supreme is a "pink" guava but it is a specific cultivar. I think it is a cross of "ruby" with something else. I can't remember but I'm sure a quick interweb search would reveal it.

UC Riverside has it in their collection.
You would need to contact CCPP (California’s Citrus Clonal Protection Program), convince them that it would be commercially viable. Get them to grow it out for a few years until it is disease free. Then get it.
I'm sure no one else in the US has it readily available.
Thank you for your gracious, informative and helpful reply.

Japan.
I might be going next month but I wouldn't want to try to import(i.e. smuggle) a scion and I wouldn't even know where to go if I wanted too ;D Are there any sources in the US that I can buy it? I was wondering if the Dept. of Ag had a tissue database. Any help would be appreciated.

What do you feed your trees? Mine are that big but not as bushy. Mine live in 25 gal pots.

I have heard everything from all hype to it' just ok. Shamus O'leary and Jake Mace seem to have been their biggest cheerleaders. The one place I went to is Phoenix said it was just a Winter Mexican. Who knows. I still want one.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Abiu finally producing
« on: September 08, 2022, 07:20:00 PM »
When is abiu season in Australia? Is it something widely or easily available? I would really like to import some plant material to do some grafting or import the actual trees.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Confused with guava tree.
« on: September 05, 2022, 05:42:06 PM »
Other than the color of the leaves for Thai red guava, I think you have to be a super guava expert to tell what cultivar you have. Lowes has done me wrong more than once. Buying scions from somebody reputable is probably the best guarantee to get what you want. My plan is to reduce my stock and multigraft a few trees.

The arrived today. The plants were in fair condition and appear to be Jambus. They are about the size I expected and they were packed well enough. For $167.92 ( alittle more than a third was "shipping" ) I got the plants but the process is sketchy. The redirect from Mimosa then the email from then the seller was STYLABBEAUTY but the payment seemed to be handled by Etsy.

To be honest I would rather have access to some of those giant varieties that are already available in Asia.

Thanks. My question was more to do with the redirect. I don't speak Vietnamese (I assume that's the language) and it just now occurred to me to Google translate it ;)

Where did you cop the seed? Is E4-pointy or round?

Mike probably has them. Trees N' More is his place.

So based off of a quick read of the article, it seems like this one was made using traditional methods instead of gmo. Looks like China is gonna be keen to not let this one spread out of the country so they can monopolize it. Even so, it would take years until it lands into the US especially with import restrictions (since this is lychee)
I wonder if it's even any good or if this is all hype? That said it is a shame the Dept. of Agriculture doesn't do like it did in the past and import varieties so that our farmers/citizens can access them.

If you're on a computer, you can auto translate it
Basically the article said they crossed lychee and longan to make this new one...
What makes it special is that there is more cold tolerance.
Also taste...
Sounds fishy. Let me read the article but I'll say before I do if this is possible how come it hasn't happened until now? I shall return. ;D
Translating that article took almost as much effort as it took to make that fruit. Interesting.
