Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Eugenia lutescens x pyriformis, wtb
« on: March 26, 2024, 11:41:11 PM »
Does anyone have seedlings of this for sale?  I had one byt accidentally killed it

Well, I've officially run out of room on my property and I am looking at the next phase of gardening and start grafting on existing trees.
I want to first start with my peach.  I purchased it as a 4 in 1 low chill, but 2 grafts died and another is June pride, which is not low chill enough for me.
Looking for mid pride, may pride, August pride and arctic star nectarine.
I've also never grafted before, so hoping to find someone in phoenix metro to help.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Are there dwarf loquats
« on: November 22, 2023, 12:28:12 AM »
I had a big in the ground.  But after 8 years in ground with no flowers and the past 2 years, about 30% die back, I decided to axe and plant something more productive.
Would like to may be container grow a loquat, that way can move it into shade in June, July, August.
Anyone know of dwarf varieties with sweet fruit and if so, where to purchase?

Does anyone have bloomsweet fruit for sale?  It's a variety I have considered growing but I think I should try the fruit first.

Citrus General Discussion / What brand of fertilizer
« on: October 11, 2023, 10:21:05 PM »
Is everyone using for their citrus trees?  I use a brand made in AZ, but, I am not sure that I love it.  Anyone getting great results with their fertilizer?

My male kei apple got enormous this summer and a few years back my female died.  Would love to start producing some fruit but cannot find sexed plants (at least ones I can afford).  Anyone have a plant for sale or know a nursery where I could purchase one?

I had two pitombas in the ground this year and I think both croaked from our unrelenting july/August heat.
I bought before I knew much about them.  But, I've since heard that a fair amount of them taste like ham.  That would not be a fruit I would personally want to grow.
Was wondering if anyone had a plant, or seeds or knew of anyone selling pitomba that has produces that taste like a fruit and not meat.

Citrus General Discussion / Replacement for dying citrus tree
« on: August 02, 2023, 01:35:35 AM »
My Kishu mandarin is not doing well in this heat.  Large branches are dying.  30 days over 110 in AZ.
It's been watered well.  It has never really produced fruit and probably 8 years in ground.
So, when it cools down, I am going to take it out.
Looking for suggestions for a good variety.
What I have now is heirloom AZ variety orange, Rio red grapefruit, blood orange, whatever the Tangerine variety they sell at Lowes and a Cara Cara.
Not doing any kind of lime, as they attract roof rats.
Right now, I am leaning towards a yosemite gold. But, thought I would ask for suggestions.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sapodilla question
« on: July 08, 2023, 11:35:47 PM »
Has anyone in AZ, or in the low desert of the SW fruited a sapodilla?  If so, what was the variety and what, if any, special attention was given to it.

Citrus General Discussion / Question in which variety you would grow
« on: March 31, 2023, 08:18:07 PM »
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?

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

Citrus General Discussion / New Zealand lemonade fruit
« on: November 09, 2022, 12:13:22 AM »
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.

I think I brought them onto my property after buying some rose bushes at the big box stores.   I've tried a whole bunch othigs, trimming off infected branches,  need oil.  Been trying for over a year and no luck.

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.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / 2nd try, is this maprang?
« on: August 11, 2022, 12:51:17 AM »
I used to go shopping with my mom and grandma when I was little.  So, unfortunately I am a sucker for a good deal.
Found this sold as maprang online.  Verdict?

I had one in the ground and it fizzled out.  Going to try growing it in a pot.  Just got scammed on etsy by someone sticking a rose cutting in a ball of mud and saying it was a jocote, spondias purpurea.   >:(

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Is this a maprang or mango?
« on: July 25, 2022, 11:20:32 PM »
I saw a couple of weeks ago that someone bought what was sold as a maprang on ebay from Puerto Rico was actually a mango.
Of course, I had purchased a supposed mango from a Puerto Rico nursery, but on etsy.  So I am crossing my fingers this is a maprang.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fertilizer question
« on: May 17, 2022, 01:18:44 AM »
What name brand fertilizer do you use for best results on your guava trees?
Also, I had been lightly fertilizing mine monthly during the growing season and that seemed to work pretty well.  How often us everyone else fertilizing?
