Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Opuntia humifusa
« on: July 17, 2024, 04:54:03 PM »
Doing well, survived the winter. This spot is very dry, hard clay. I burned the glochids off the lower humifusa because I cannot stick my hand here to pull weeds without getting pricked!

ellisiana grafted to humifusa

when you are up potting/ planting the cuttings make sure to raise the plant a bit at the correct level, the cuttings are settled a bit deep in the containers- good for stability but not for the trunk long term

looks good, glad the packaging held up. 3 days to the west from east coast has got to be a record lol would explain the beat up box
you have quite the collection behind the PF there  ;D!

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Anyone growing Taveres LImequat
« on: July 17, 2024, 11:56:08 AM »
if its anything like kumquat it will be in winter. my seed grown limequat flowered a few weeks ago

Thanks for the pics sc4001992, the red veining on leaves looks prominent compared to any other edulis i've seen
did you keep the packing material on the pots or was it just for the pics
i'd remove it to let the soil breathe if they are still covered

4 available, roots are starting to push out from the bottom of the container as well as new growth.

Price drop since they are smaller, $10 each with one larger with much thicker stem original price $15.

If you'd like a rooted cutting pls DM me with your zipcode for a shipping quote (priority mail).
Pls respond and make payment by Tuesday, otherwise spot will go to the next person

Does it also help keep the fruit on the tree? My potted Morton drops the fruit every year so far the last 3 years. I pollinated flowers with Ichang, Calamondin, and Meyer and only the x Meyer fruit is left

you sure can, all seed grown citrus will eventually produce given enough time
depending on the variety some will come true from seed (a clone of the mother plant) others will not, meyer lemon is a good example

You can grow Key Lime from seed?......and they will produce?

We had some very strong gusts of wind followed by a thunder storm and heavy rain. The grafts held through without any additional support. Thanks all for the tips!

Good idea grafting it to keep it smaller. This one wants to grow as a spindly bush. I haven't pruned it though because I didn't want to cut a potential flowering branch, glad I didn't. I am also growing Mandarinquat again, will put into 5-1-1 mix or graft to an existing potted established rootstock. Hope it inherits the kumquat faster flowering vs waiting as long as a mandarin

Citrus General Discussion / Limequat from seed to flower ~2 years!
« on: June 27, 2024, 08:13:09 AM »
In 2022 I bought some limequats from SayWeee. Tossed a few seeds in pots. Killed most of them from root rot. Today I notice that my remaining plant is flowering. Key limes are also known to flower from seed pretty quickly as well as the kumquat in its lineage.

Thanks, the coloration is what prompted me making this post. Looks more like a dwarf cavendish

This was sold as such, do the leaves match?

This graft is 2 months old, the film and rubber band just fell off today. Is there a risk of it popping off at this stage? The graft is almost invisible. Should I secure it by wrapping it again with a rubber band and film?

My bigger trees, not pictured, I did bark grafts that are held in place using zipties on one tree and both small picture hanging nails as well as zipties on the other. When should I remove the zipties? I am worried wind will snap the grafts off.



I should have atleast 4-5 more soon. Will keep you and the people who PMed updated when I have them!
Thanks for the interest!

Wow, very nice, I will be ordering a few. I like the color of your flowers, congrats on a new seedling, Purple Boots.

How is the taste of the fruits, is it similar to Fredericks and the other purple-colored fruits (posum purple, Nancy Garrison)?

The fruit tastes like a regular passion fruit to me, but I haven't tried too many named varieties to compare. It is sweeter when it shrivels up on the counter

Thanks for the interest, this sold out already!

I have 2 left, but am currently propagating more. Self fertile. Discovered it from planting seeds.

I am calling it "Purple Boots"
The leaves have red veins and the flowers are pigmented as well as the anthers.

$15 for the well rooted cutting + $12 priority mail shipping (I will check your zipcode to confirm).

Citrus General Discussion / Re: blood lime x yuzu
« on: June 17, 2024, 12:57:29 PM »
the yuzu pollen to the blood lime flower was deliberate, the other off-type seedlings were from fruit I did nothing to (which I understand the blood lime is a hybrid itself which produces offtypes) the only other reason (besides the intentional pollinating) I think it might be a hybrid with the yuzu are the petioles and the yuzu/mandarin scent of the leaves. will definitely keep an eye on it, so will have a better idea when it is larger

So you have made an intentional crossing or was it also a natural hybrid where you discovered a potential cross by planting the seeds?

It's an interesting mix for sure! Please keep us updated.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Did my T-buds survive?

Tbud on the bottom lower graft on this branch. Cleft graft on top. The new growth pushed through the parafilm

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Did my T-buds survive?
« on: June 16, 2024, 11:22:15 PM »
Based on the color of the first two I'd say no. They look dessicated. Not sure about the last one hard to tell what is going on. If you use parafilm you don't need to unwrap the bud will grow through

Citrus General Discussion / blood lime x yuzu
« on: June 13, 2024, 10:54:44 AM »
I think I might have made a hybrid. The leaves have a yuzu scent.

Possible blood lime x yuzu seedling

Blood lime seedling without intentional crossing

But this one is also a blood lime seedling without intentional crossing

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Pineapple guava in pots
« on: June 03, 2024, 10:48:58 PM »
I have some videos up of my potted feijoas in zone 7 I think I had 20+ fruit between the two pots. I hand pollinated.
Eventually planted them in the ground and used passive protection but had die back from a harsh winter. I've since kept 1 in a pot again as I don't think the inground ones will flower unless we have a mild winter without dieback.

Highly recommend broncn! All of the 4 varieties arrived in excellent shape, and are growing now. Only had one variety fail due to my inexperience keeping water out of the graft, but will be trying again.
