Is there any consensus on the best type of cherimoya cultivar to use as rootstock? I've seen a few places say Dr White but curious if any others

Is that a nam wah? I see a red pseudostem, mine are not red

Was sold to me as dwarf namwah

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is wrong with this pineapple?
« on: February 07, 2021, 12:38:57 PM »
This is in full sun, well draining soil. Lows have been mid 40s. Not sure if it is cold damage or sunburn(I think pineapples are fine in full sun?)

Lowest temp has been mid 40s, and it a bit wet in this spot. I'm wondering too if I should move it to full sun - the plant is about two feet tall.

Watch Joe Hewitt's youtube series on tropical fruit in the bay and try some ones that he didn't already test

The fruit I have tasted was mediocre but maybe someone else knows more about different cultivars. The trees are very pretty.

There are lots of luma apiculata growing in San Francisco as ornamental trees.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Eugenia myrcianthes - Uvaia do Campo

Got some seeds from Trade Winds Fruits for "Eugenia myrcianthes - Uvaia do Campo" which germinated in my greenhouse. I was unable to dig up any info on the internet about the plant. Does anyone that has grown it have any advice about the plant? Is it the same plant as eugenia pyriformis?

You're in Santa Maria, go to Orpet Park in Santa Barbara and taste some from the tree there in the spring. Tastes like garlic, pretty unpleasant although apparently they taste ok when very underripe?

I've only had the ones generically labeled "Satsuma" at the store -.where can I try specific types? Which should I look for?

Can any of these be rooted from cuttings?

I would said yes.  I rooted Shangri-La with aloe during last Oct and they all show new growth now.

What is rooting with aloe? Haven't heard of that technique

Can any of these be rooted from cuttings?

Can someone tell me of those cuttings which are easily rootable and which requires grafting?

Marina variety fruit is bad, prefer other types I've tried more. Marina is the prettiest tree though.

Size and productivity can be effected by it so it would cool if it were that productive without hand pollination.
Does he hand-pollinate?

What does that have to do with anything?

This tree is in SB area, and I've seen them at the farmers market for a month (still hard when picked). These have a slight yellow tinge but still hard, no give.

My Vernon fruit are still hard but haven't seemed to get any bigger than the baseball size they are currently at. If I pick now will they ripen completely ? Or do I need to wait until a certain state on the tree

Have access to a big hedge, was just going to make jam but curious if there are other good uses for it.

Curious what the ruby glow fruit is like, didn't know if having a frederick to cross pollinate would let it set fruit.

I didn't realize there was east coast chinquapin. Here in California there is lots of wild golden chinquapin. Very spiny covers on the nuts but apparently edible
