Been waiting years for a phx plant grower to post this!

I wouldn't plant a Kei Apple unless you have a large property and can tuck it away to avoid those thorns.

A couple other you may want to try. 
Baba berry raspberry.
Raspberry shortcake, from bushel and berry.  They have both of them for sale down in here in phoenix
Also, I had to yank my Brazos blackberry because it was about to overtake my yard.

Citrus General Discussion / Question in which variety you would grow

If you to choose between planting a Rio red grapefruit and a valentine pumelo, just based on  enjoyability of eating the fruit, which would you choose?

I haven't had any problems withoquats, so far.  The trick I think, is planting them in late September.  Gives the roots enough time to dig into the soil and be adjusted before June.  I have a pretty big juicy Jim from tropicamango in AJ, but, it hasn't bloomed yet.

I was told to let guava's fall of the tree.

Do you spread it in the soil?  On the plants?

Thanks for the tip!  Do you know where I can buy those bugs?  I also heard the smell of marigolds can also repel thrips, s am throwing some seed around my roses, as they are getting hit, too.

Mine did not.  But, was first large fruit set.  So maybe that might happen in the future.

Citrus General Discussion / Tarocco Orange
« on: December 13, 2022, 12:19:25 AM »
Very happy, my blood orange is bloody.  I know Tarocco isn't supposed to have deep pigment so I think it turned out an appropriate color.
The one I ate so far was good, mild taste with that raspberry tang present.  Not bad for first year fruiting

I was told by someone smarter than me, allow your fruit to produce fruit for 3 seasons.  After then, you can truly judge the fruit quality.  Not perfect, but I find it a good rule of thumb.

Interesting.   This is my first fruit ever.  I may need to wait a while until the fruit gets better.  Also, the are 2 still green on the tree.  Maybe this was just a bad one.  Looking forward to less sourness!

Was very excited that I had a ripe fruit on the ground today.  Brought it in and ate that bad boy up.  I think it fits true to the name.  It was 60% sour lemon, 40% sweet (I couldn't detect any mandarin flavor) and it had a lime after taste.
I think it is just a tad too sour for general public, but, it was tantalizingly close.  For all of us fruit nuts, I think it's a pretty good fruit.  Oh, and it was pretty juicy.

If anyone has a sweet variety of changsha fruiting and have some to spare coming up, I'd like to purchase some of your fruit and have it shipped to my house.  It is a favorite citrus variety of mine .

Anyone selling greenwax apple, small tree or seedling?

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Pluerry
« on: September 04, 2022, 02:32:14 AM »
Anyone ever seen a multi grafted pluerry online for sale?

I have tried different varieties and they all croak.  A problem I have is no sun coming in my windows in winter.  I tried grow lights with no luck.  Anyone have the secret to growing this plant indoors in winter?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / California lilac
« on: August 25, 2022, 11:28:50 PM »
Just making sure that ceonanthus is named CA lilac because of the flower color and not the scent.
I'd love to grow anything that had a lilac fragrance, so I'd buy one in a second if it did.
Are there any tropical or subtropical plants that have flowers with a lilac fragrance?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Coffee
« on: August 25, 2022, 11:26:12 PM »
I know everyone grows coffee for the beans.  But, does any coffee produce fruit that is pleasantly edible?  Would be nice to have a plant with a dual purpose.

I think I made a mistake with my mother's citrus tree.  I got a tangerine tree on clearance at Lowe's a few years back.
I cannot remember the variety, but, I think after having the tree for a few years that the flavor will always be sweet tart.
My mom is a boomer that was spoiled rotten bt her greatest generation mother.  Never forced her to try anything unusual.   She is extremely meat and potatoes.
So, even though the tree is very healthy, I think u am going to take it down because my mother always complains that the fruit are too tart.
So, what would be a good suggestion on a mandarin or orange that has a flavor that would appeal to someone that grew up in the 50's/60's, is very sweet and not tart.

I'm in Scottsdale and I'd like some, too.  If you find someone selling them, double the order and I'll pay half.
