driftw, I think the pods are old but that is the color they turn after green. Also from pictures on line pods look to small to be I. feuillei or can they throw smaller pods in sub-tropical environment?

Yeah they can absolutely throw smaller pods. anywhere from a few inches to about 24 inches long

I think it's accurate, It's probably the most common species in CA and one of the best for eating
OK, thanks driftwood.

Very sad to hear of his passing I will remember him every time I eat a El Bumpo cherimoya.

I've used aluminium & sheet metal flashing we've picked up at swap meet or garage sales works very well. Have made cones for a few tree's out of alum. flashing too.

Nice work Shiloh, great way to multiply a variety. Do you have any cuttings that have lived over a year? 8)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Guabiju pruning

Jonah, the biggest crop comes in fall but had small crop in Spring this year too! I eat them mostly out of hand so hard to tell about but I think maybe overall in fall about a quart of fruit. they are mostly small in size about 1/2"and this is tree from Ben Poirier, have another seedling from Oscar, that has bigger leaves but has not fruited yet! I think being shaded by big macadamia in front of guabiju is effecting fruiting or else that's all it has to offer.

I have a bush/ shrub/small tree about 12 ft tall I keep around that size by drop crotch pruning! It took over 15 years to get that tall where I'm at on Central Coast of California-- two to three miles from beach. Easy to keep any size you want.

Congrats Shane, on fruiting your ligularis, I have one alive in ground now for 4-years but no flowers yet!

Kaz, 50 varieties of loquat on one tree is impressive
Ok, thanks for your feedback, now I know which ones to add more grafts on the tree. I didn't have the Michelle yet but have the others on your list.
46 varieties, that's a lot, I don't think I can fit that many on one tree. But you never know, I do have 50 varieites of loquats on one tree now.

Great description Adam 8)

Kaz, it's hard for me to say because many varieties have not fruited for me yet! But of my fruiting varieties so far my list would be;
1-Vernon
2-Nettie-tree ripened,Yellow wholly leaf seedling
3-Robert's Rainbow
4-Pike, Cuccio,Michele
5-Santa Cruz, Redlands
But looking forward to Lemon Gold,Leroy,Malibu #1&#3,plus newer varieties to me from you!Sadly other 46 varieties have not fruited for me yet! Well not true some have fruited once but hard to judge without multi-year production.

23
Since all my varieties are grown close to coast my ripening times are all over the place eating Pike right now soon will be Cuccio the other day had first small Maltby.

24
Kevin, i did put my tree's in or with plastic bag over pots tied to pot put failed also I cut into or below bark to see if any green put they were gone!! when through shredder today :'(

Sad to say both my Black Peak and Dongkui died :-[ :'(
