Citrus General Discussion / Identify this citrus tree

Does this look variety look familiar to anyone.

As you know, I have been traveling around the world trying to secure viable seeds. My travels have taken me to the Peruvian Amazon to live with families in the flood plains to collect fruit... to the indigenous Tikuna community of Colombia and all over Brazil. Much much more to come.
During that time, my loving wife has kept all my little seedlings alive, but its time to reduce her workload. Happy bidding no reserves.

Seeds and seedlings are still available at https://hapajoesnursery.com/ Shipping from California

Sourced from Brazil, a rare annona species.

The fruits have the aroma and flavor of soursop and are highly appreciated for fresh consumption, and the seeds easily come off the pulp. The fruits can also be pulped and the pulp frozen for future use or immediately to make juice, yogurts, mousses, ice creams, etc... The fruits of this species are rich in dissolved minerals, because in nature many insects and butterflies come to suck these nutrients. of ripe fruit or fallen to the ground.

Collector must have: Myciaria sp Roxa the Blue Guaquiea
https://www.ebay.com/itm/334577033001
Round fruit of good size (c. 2.5 cm in diameter), with an almost smooth skin and color changing from bluish to violet, according to maturation. Its flavor is sweet and much appreciated by local populations, who call the fruit jabuticaba-de-vaqueiro or jabuticaba-de-tabuleiro. The plant is a shrub that generally does not exceed 2-3 m in height (2nd photo), and it is common to find specimens of 50-60 cm already bearing fruit. Its trunk is initially rough (young seedlings), becoming smooth and reddish-brown at maturity. Its leaves have some similarities with the true guaquica (Myrciaria guaquiea), such as being densely hairy on the underside and having the edges facing downwards. However, a closer examination reveals important differences, such as oppositely crossed leaves, concave (vs. convex) young leaf blade, protruding veins on the upper face, etc.

Rooted 14" cutting Ohana Express pushing 3 nodes
https://www.ebay.com/itm/334577078171
This past summer, I moved my 2 year old Ohana Express bout from Spicy Exotics and broke off a couple big pieces. I sold and traded some cuttings and rooted a bunch more. This is the biggest and comes from a very mature and thick portion of the cactus. It is fully rooted and pushing out of three nodes.

Do you really love the fruit that much?
Its a cute ornamental that makes fruit sometimes or often never.
Been growing it 10 years in good coastal CA conditions and very few and very small fruits.
Just grow more Poha and call it a day or something else that fruits much better.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: My citrus collection [EU - Antwerp]
« Last post by Peep on September 30, 2022, 11:39:57 AM »
Your potting mix sounds very well-draining. That could be a bit too much during hot weather. I once used a similar mix and had to water constantly and the citrus had red spider mites all the time.

I also have a Hana Yuzu "buccia liscia" from Lenzi. It came with a few fruits that really had smooth skin. Oddly enough, later fruits have had a much more bumpy rind. It is not really smooth anymore. I don't have a normal Hana Yuzu anymore for comparison, though.

I'm curious if the smooth skin hanayuzu from lenzi is the same as the Hana Yuzu "Sudachi" from Adavo.

For the watering of the plants in summer I might use those drip watering lines, similar to what they use in nurseries. Not sure yet.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Quava pruning
« Last post by Plantinyum on September 30, 2022, 11:34:31 AM »
U can cut the long branches severely, they will branch usually from the nodes that are left at the tips.
I cant really tell u what season its best to do this, but i guess any time will be ok in your zone.
For training i actually do not prune mine, i just tip the new growth once it has 3-4 sets of leaves, that keeps them more compact and denser. I do do this becouse i have to, mine have to be very compact ,both the ones in the greenhouse and the potted ones. U have way more space there so can let it get bigger as u dont have to take them inside for winter, or fit them tight in a gh, like i have to.
U can use the pinched tips for tea, also the leaves, so i have red.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: My citrus collection [EU - Antwerp]
« Last post by Peep on September 30, 2022, 11:24:29 AM »
If you mean a pumice for lava, it could be OK, but at least  in France lava is something else- red colored stuff obtained by grinding of volcanic rock.
It is considered unsuitable for citrus cultivation because of high abrasive action on the roots.

Unfortunately I could not find pumice anywhere, I don't know why it's so rare. Only way I could buy it was a bigbag (1 cubic meter), which is way too much, but mostly the problem is also that I live in the city and we don't have anything like a driveway for them to put it.

Best I could do was this: https://www.compo.be/fr/produits/paillage/autres/compo-pouzzolane

I hope it won't be too sharp. Do you have any other recommendations for something that could be better?
