Thai people do not use juice from the fruits.  We only use it's rinds as part of curry ingredients.

Yes, thanks for correcting me on the Kurokuma seedling graft. I don't think my graft will have any fruits this year, it is still not that large. Hope next year it grows more branches and fattens up.

Kaz any idea what variety is this persimmon?  It does not taste bitter when eating while it is hard.

Thanks for all the detail informations.  The pollinated one looks amazingly delicious with brown flesh.

Thanks Kaz, it is very interesting to know.  On 3rd photo you posted, are both of the fruits soft and fully ripened?

Kaz how can you tell which ones of the Hyakume fruits were pollinated when pick?

Kaz, 90% of my AG cuttings I got from you took.  Thanks.

This cherimoya is 13yrs old grew from seed.  It was in a 15gal for 8yrs so it was not grow much.  I had just repotted into a plastic half wine barrel last winter. Before transplant I pruned off lots of its roots. Yes you can say root bound stunts the growth. 

You can plant it in the ground and do the espalier

Lovetoplant, yes, I have grafted White Pakistan and Australian Green to Shangri La, Black Pakistan, Thai Dwarf, and everbearing trees, no problem.

The Australian Green is easier to graft than my White Pakistan, if you want the Australian Green just let me know if you order the cuttings. The White Pakistan is a slower grower than the Australian Green.

Thank you!  I would be interested in Aus Green.  My black Pakistan is starting to lose all of  its leaves from a month of not being watered(was gone on a trip).  After being watered, it is now starting to put out the fruits again. 

Question is if it possible to graft the scions at this stage?  I really appreciate the advice.  Thanks again

I espaliered fig and cherimoya

Kaz- Can Australia Green be grafted on to one of Pakistan or Everbearing branch?  Which variety will take Aus Green easier?  Thanks

I have an involuntary tree growing behind my house by the street. I am pretty sure it is still there.  I am away and will not get back until early September.   I could send you some for the cost of postage.  Let me know.  Pm me first week of September

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Yellow fruit annona(sugar apple)
« on: August 04, 2022, 08:41:27 AM »
I think any annona is worth growing and giving a try.
Where did you find this picture?
I saw some purple sugar apples on etsy but the attached video the fruit
is green? I am always suspicious when I see out of the ordinary pictures
of fruit. Can you get seeds or plants of this white annona I guess sugar apple?

https://www.etsy.com/listing/997347002/9-to-11-purple-baby-sugar-apple-tree?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=sugar+apple&ref=sr_gallery-1-17&frs=1&organic_search_click=1

look at the attached video the sugar apples are green?

Found this annona fruit s and seeds selling in Thailand.  It is locally grown in North Eastern region of Thailand. There are 3 colors of this sugar apple growing locally grown here in Thailand, green, purple, and this yellow.  I am wondering if anyone growing this variety in the States.  Fruit weighs up to half a pound.  Seller said this sugar apple will grow true to seed

Good karma

What variety is it? Does any know is this annona worth growing?    Thanks

Perhaps you should turn the question around to how do you fertilize (or not) lawn close to a fruit tree.
Add irrigate too.

I suggest this because depending on which variety, you may want less N than you would want on your lawn and possibly less water too.

Yes I only fertilize my lawn once in late winter afraiding that too much nitrogen will promote vegetative growth for my matured trees(Asian pear trees and Fuyu) instead of fruits.  I like to fertilize the grass 2 times, but don't want to mess up my trees

18
How would you fertilize your fruit trees growing in the grass lawn?

My tree had similar problem like yours.  I sprayed it with copper 3x and it cleared up.  Be sure to spray under the leaves well. Good luck

Red speckles also show on Feurte avo too.  It appears all avo flushing red leaves.  Brad?

Not all but almost all avos have red flush.

Ill look at my lamb tree and see if it has speckles later this weekend.

Where did the tree come from?  What nursery?

I do not have Lamb, just trying to help out the member.  I saw them a few days ago at Lowe’s an HD and they have red newly flushed leaves, but did not look at the stems for red fleckles.  My Feurte  and Sharwil both have red fleckles.

Once retired when the eggs stop, they continue to take care of the slugs, snails, most bugs, low hanging grapes and unprotected vegetables, and provide the compost material. Living the good life. They do seem to start acting like dogs a bit as they age, in other ways like kids... freeloaders. :)  Sadly,  a couple if them died of old age earlier this year, lasting 7 and 10 years hence the remaining grumpy 10+ year old and new youngsters. Cheaper and easier pets than dogs plus fresh eggs again after a dry spell.

Regarding predators,  raccoons,  their coop is built like fort Knox,  hardware cloth all the way around except for siding and doors, asphalt singled roof like a normal house, concrete filled cinder blocks a foot deep for perimeter to fasten down the walls with j hooks, 6 inches of tampered gravel topped with sand (good enough for pavers). Nice run and space under the coop. Plenty of room to keep 4 or 5 birds if i don't want to let them out or am away as its designed for 12, just have to make sure there's enough food and water.



What will you do to the hens whose not laying any more eggs?  Giving them away?

Surprise they live a very long life.  Thanks for the infos

I might in search for some as well. Received this as lamb Hass but doesn't look like it to me. Anyone tell what kind of avocado this is?








Not sure if all the same tree, but the lowest photo looks like my lamb hass I bought. The wiggly leaf edge is what I am noting is the same.

K-Rimes: is your Lamb Hass has red fleckles on stems?
