New variety LUC'S GARCINIA "ORANGEY"
« on: June 16, 2023, 06:07:39 PM »
 ORANGE LUC'S GARCINIA
on my last picking fruit safari I was able to spot a tree with orange fruits instead of the regular yellow ones, I was able to get some fruits, they have an excellent taste, while the regular yellow can be totally sweet when fully ripe this Orangey ones have a stronger flavors very sweet but also with a big of tart all around, 90% sweet 10% tart, another difference is the skin keeps thick like Achachairu instead of became thin tomato type like regular yellow ones, the skin is edible and crunchy, the flesh is also of a deeper color of the yellow one 😀Definitely a nice find

Hey Raul I have been off here for over a year and its good to see you're still bring new stuff to the table. You will be please to know that a few of your plants over here are fruiting. I used to think they were male female and bisex but now it looks like all are bisex but one is 99.9% male and another is 99% female.

How well would this handle arid, hot summers, and winters that can get to around freezing in fits and spurts?
Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

I am not the best person to answer this but probably not well, I think above 100F they suffer.  Likewise with the cold, probably will suffer under 32F.
