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.

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.

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.

I'm jelly. Ong is open on the weekends right?

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.

36
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.

I was just about to snag some wax apple plants online when I saw the bad reviews for www.chfruittreenursery.com. Kinda disturbing how many members have taken a loss with these people or been dissatisfied. I rolled the dice and decided to buy from Mimosa LA's website but when I clicked on purchase online I was redirected to Vườn c‚y ăn trŠi - California Tropical Fruit Trees. I bought it Paypal but not I'm thinking it might be sketchy too. Anybody else bought from Mimosa online and had this experience?

Are pomegranates evergreen in Florida?

44
When I talked with silber, he was annoyed that others were selling his kei apple. However, he didnít want to sell me one. I donít think the other nurseries are cutting into his profits! He also refuses to ship.

Marta Matvienko here in the Bay Area planted out several of these, and got one sweet female. She offers it on her website, among many other great scions: https://reallygoodplants.com/
I checked. Everything is sold out! Hahahaha. Her stuf can't be that good. Thanks for the tip.
I'm still searching 😂

Wax apple is light sweet, crunchy, and lightly astringent, and must be protected from the sun.

There are a few varieties out there:

Thai jumbo
red diamond
black pearl
green diamond
red rocket
perfume
black kingkong.
What's the difference between the varieties?

Thai jumbo (big and green)
black diamond (dark purple)
black pearl ( simular to black diamond)
green diamond (green)
red rocket (long purple)
perfume ( large and smell like perfume)
black kingkong. (improved version of black diamond/pearl?)

They have sweet level of red dragon fruit.  Some of the fruits are seedless.
As far as I know all those varieties are only availabe on the West Coast. I have never seen these named varieties at an East Coast Nursery.

Ok. I'm ready. When you gonna share ;D
I never had shuttlesworthi. How does it differ from let's say a European grape? Muscadines are endemic here but suffer from drought sometimes. I assume non of the varieties you listed have any drought tolerance.

47
What!!!!!????!!!!! Wait Silber/Arcadian Zulu is a Myth!!!!!Say it ain't so! Those guys at exotica told me it would take two years! Those rascals! Ok! One of our forum brothers has one the fruited relatively small. I'll ask him to to do me a solid and give me a clipping. Anybody know anything about Prodigal or is that myth and lore too ;D ;D ;D

48
Yeah, I talked to him. That was two years ago. He basically said he didn't know when he would have it in stock.

49
Come on Guys. I know you got them ;D I bought two kei apples from exotica 5 years ago and neither has fruited. I need one that fruits and taste good. Come on and help old CarolinaZone out. 8)

Well. In terms of size they are the Logees of the south:relatively small plants for relatively high prices. Packing is no the best there and neither is their shipping.
