Any advice on where to shop and what to expect?

Especially interested in finding: different lychees including Erdon Lee, the best passion fruit, amber jackfruit, mammoth atemoyas, achachairu and small leaf mangosteen.


Seedlings are about six months old, began having foliar problem about 3 months ago in cool wet winter, all 9 plants affected. Grown in tree pots with Promix MP+, peat based and perlite potting soil. Neighboring cacao, macnut, cashew and soursop unaffected. Any help appreciated!

There are a couple mature rainbow gums on the property I plan to collect seed from this year to expand the rainbow forest. They are such captivating trees and I must have more!

They produce a beautiful medium shade that would be great for my growing collection of Theobromas and other misc fruit trees that tolerate shade. My concern is whether E. deglupta plays nice with understory trees, specifically cacao and Dalbergia retusa cocobolo.

Hoping someone on here has experience with these combinations, mahalo!

Iíve read in several forum posts that bulala is graft compatible with pulasan and grows much more vigorously than pulasan. Has anyone tested this combo and have results to share? Iím interested in learning if bulala increases pulasan overall vigor: growth rate, time to first harvest, fruit regularity and production level.

Also read that bulala rootstock can overwhelm the pulasan with suckers, but canít find any info on how bulala affects growth, fruiting and resistance to pests.

Any tips appreciated, this may be a question only answered by trying!

N. cuspidatum giant rambutan compatible with any other Nephelium rootstock?

Aloha! What is the typical pulasan season in Hawaii?

Also, Iíve been checking local markets here on Maui and havenít seen a one! Has the season past this year or is it late? Hopefully I havenít missed it!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sapindaceae seedling success rates

Iíve started a number of soapberry seedlings this year. Curious if anyone has a educated guess or anecdotal evidence as to the success rate of seedlings.

Put another way, if you planted a hundred seeds of a known quality cultivar, what percentage of seedlings would have equal or superior fruit to the parent?

Lychee, rambutan, pulasan and mamoncillo

Please tell us more about this fantastically giant example

Is it really a new variety/hybrid or just an exceptionally large fruit? I thought all mangosteens, aside from mesta, are clones

As a lychee lover I can forgive a lot of supposed lychee sins such as big seed, rag, sour, green skin and irregular bearing. What limits my consumption is the juiceplosion upon opening, rinsing my hands and repeating.

After reading so much about how the Chinese prize the dry and clean quality, I wonder, why donít we see this trait? Have the traits of aborted seed, bright red, tons of sugar and little rag won out in breeding programs? Is dryness not compatible with another characteristic such as little rag?

Perhaps a topic for a new thread; how many Kaimana seedlings would need to be planted before a dry and clean lychee was found?

Any insights for a newbie are appreciated. Please stop me before I begin planting lychee seedlings in every spare nook I can find.
