Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Lara Farms tree source
« on: March 13, 2022, 04:26:49 PM »
Is the Lara farms everyone discusses her the one that's 3 miles north of the fruit and spice park?  Stopped by today and besides some beautiful established trees all I saw was a smattering of mango trees all like 20gal.

Lots of grafted plants in the shade house.

I would like 6.

Does the butterscotch has sandy/gritty texture or smooth flesh to taste?

Supposed to be grit less.

NEWS FLASH:  I was just listening to the Q&A with Julian Lara from Jan. 20 on Fruitful Trees YouTube channel, and he raved about a white sapote called Campbell (named for Carl Campbell), which he said he'll be propagating this year.  (He also said he'll be propagating Butterscotch sapodilla--for those who were interested in that variety of sapodilla.  I hope he won't be charging an arm and a leg, but you never know.)

Ive been growing a 1g Campbell from I purchased from Lara last summer and its growing fast. My sue bell I bought as a 3g cant keep up with it.

The first Pumpkin Pie Mameys sold from Zill had Parrita on the tag  so Iím sure thatís the same variety

Thank you. Ive been trying to figure this mystery out since I bought a 15g last year.

Looking at this site and the Dwarf Parrita they have there looks exactly like my Pumpkin Pie Mamey.

Why not just order it yourself from Amazon and have it shipped to your door without a middleman? Took only a few days to arrive and they have different types and sizes.

At this price? Not that I see.

87
So if we emailed you 2 weeks ago and havent heard back. Just hang tight?

How did I miss this thread?  So if Zill is propagating this variety, is it another case of whatever retailer has any available they're going to charge two or three times the regular price, like what was done with the Butterscotch sapodilla?  Does Zill actually charge so much more for these new varieties they've bred?

No clue what Zill is actually charging but yeah bend over and grab your ankles.

I planted a 15g last year and know nothing about this variety. Would love to know more. It looks like it will stay quite compact.

I know the Zills Pumpkin pie variety is a dwarf. Dont know much more about it but it seems to be growing quite compact. Planted a 15 gallon last year and just now seeing flowers forming.

Julian is the real deal, wish I had more space.

Most of my fruit trees are from Lara farms.

93
This would be great since Im only a few blocks away from Zills.

94
Any info on this variety? I'm not finding much other than dwarfness.

I planted a 15 gallon recently and so far being dwarf is all I know about this variety. Ive been trying to get some info but no luck.

Is it true that Excalibur isn't what it used to be?

If you want diseased plants and super crazy priced everything they are good for that. I live 3 blocks from them and avoid like the plague.

For Miami area I would definitely checkout Lara Farms for Camito, Mameys and much more

I live in Palm Beach County and have bought tons of trees from Lara Farms. Julian is the best person to deal with. Its funny because I live super close to Excalibur and they constantly have diseased plants and rip everyone off with their pricing.

Chris at Truly Tropical comes in a close 2nd for me.
