I don't think moorpark is low chill.

I think low chills are flavor delight, cot-n-candy, gold kist, katy, and tropic gold.

I have a small grafted tree.  It has been fruiting for the second year.  The fruits are big.   It has good aroma, juicy, sweet, soft, beatiful.   Taste wise, inferior to Lisa because I like the firmer and slimmy texture of Lisa.

I lean towar AP because of the internal black sack surrounding the seed.

Thai ruby seedless guava is good if you like crunchy, sweet and sour.

I like Diamond/Crystal/Queen the most because it's sweeter and Taiwanese ruby seedless guava.

I'm jealous.  This year I need to start taking of mines.

Click the CC icon.  Then click the Setting icon.  Then choose the auto translate.  Select English.

If you understand Vietnamese, this video review a few seedless guava.

Here is a link to a review of 10 atemoya varieties in Vietnamese.  Even though sweetgreen is not on the table, at the end of the review, they mentioned that sweetgreen and Taiwan varieties are not good enough to grow.

Here are pictures of SSA.  It is large fruit. When ripe, can be soft like Lisa.  Flesh is segmented as Lisa as well, but not as chewy.  Sweeter than Lisa.  Good aroma as sugar apple.

Forgot to take the picture of the inside.

Sorry, I have the wrong pictures.  Here are the correct ones.

SSA, is the bigger one in comparision to Lisa and Bradley

I got rid of my lucuma.  Too sweet.  Fruits hang 1 year. 

I also got rid of canistel.  Have lot flowers, but not fruits over a decade.

If I feel like eating them, I go get purple yam and steam.  Taste very simular.

So you did try stinking tofu.  Is it something that you are willing to eat again?  I have not tried it.

Have you trie duran as well?

I have read articles similar to that. 

I know, at least for me, eating about 2 segments of pomelo does not seem to have effect on me.  Maybe it does for someone else.  Each person has to know their own condition.  Best, maybe not to eat, since there are plenty of other fruits to eat.

 Yesterday, I asked my doctor if I can eat grapefruit.  He said because I'm on cholesteral medication, I can eat one a day, but do not drink the juice.

Man, I did not ask about pomelo, thinking he does not know what pomelo is.  I eat some pomelo before, even on medication, it did not seem to have any effect.

Most of my trees are from him.  They are mostly from seed, except longan.  The trees are huge now.

Steve should move away from seed proprogation plants, and do full time selling grafted plants. Subtropical plants were hard to come by, but that seedling era is over. Asian nurseries in LA and OC are selling grafted plants like crazy.   

Steve should also selling hot items.  For example, Jabo, Thai jujube, seedless guava, seedless longan, wax apple, low chill cherries, lychee, atemoya, pomelos, ect...

Simon, I have been emailing APHIS reguarding permit.  You can bring in up to 12 bare root plants mail directly to your house if the seller provides Phytosanitary Certificate.

I don't think it is a single vendor.  It is a market place like ebay, amazon, aliexpress, etc...

I have not ordered anything from it. 

I did ordered some things else from aliexpress, and it is not bad.

Has anyone shopped at It seems to be legit.  There are lots of listings on yangmei trees dirt cheap.

I looked at some of the videos.  The traps looked effective.  However, at $200 and the recurring cost of refilling the air capsoles, that are steep.

Simple Victor traps are effective for me at $2.  However, it rusts extremely fast.  Someone need to make galvanized traps to compete with Victor.

Imagine, company like dewalt, milwaukee, makita, ryobi, ridgid, etc... get into this business?  Price will drop like hell.

It sounds like a need for male is essential then.

Simon, I will ask the vendor to see if what ever happened to Fang case is a general tendency of just an off case.

In Fang case, was the tree not produced the male flower in the early years; or did not produce enough male flowers; or produced enough male flowers, but did not hold?

Also, the vendor is selling 1, 2, and 3 years grafted plants.  I'm planing on getting the 3 years plants.

I chatted with vendor from China.  I was informed that dong kui, black carbon, and crystal are Hermaphrodite.  So, no male is needed.

Since grapefruit is a hybrid of pomelo and orange, most articles said that pomelo does have effect just like grapefruit.

Next time I visit my doctor, I will ask him.

Yes, the fruits can get very big.  My neighbor has both the pink and white flesh.  Tasted very good.  I did not dare to consume much because I fear its effect on my medications.
