Tropical Fruit Discussion / Your absolute favorite FL fruit tree
« on: November 06, 2022, 03:59:09 PM »
I know we have a lot of members here in FL.
I'm just curious what your absolute favorite fruit tree is in your yard and why. Maybe after talking about it.. it will help others know about it/make them want to plant one.

For me I think it's my seedling Rollinia tree. It gives me tons of fruit and they are my favorite thing to eat from the yard. A close second is sweet tart mango. I have lots of other fruit trees that haven't fruited yet so the list might change in the years to come!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pakistan mulberry help
« on: August 23, 2022, 03:04:43 PM »
So I purched a few rooted cuttings of Pakistan mulberry about a year ago. They haven't done any growing yet. Some of them have dropped about half their leaves.

I thought these trees would grow like weeds at my house. Are the Pakistan mulberries prone to nematodes or something?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Abiu tree FL help
« on: August 10, 2022, 08:18:24 PM »
I was hoping I could get some words of advice for growing this tree in FL. Ive had good success growing many fruit trees in FL.. but I've managed to kill all of the abius I've planted so far. 3 in total. They seem to take a hit when the weather is cold.. then slowly die the following months. I love this fruit and would like some advice. I don't want to give up.

I'm in 10a

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cecropia in FL
« on: April 18, 2022, 05:20:34 PM »
I'm just curious of people's experiences growing it in FL. I've had two so far both die. One from a flood. The other was a young one that died in the cold this year.

I'm just curious of other people's growing experience. Does it grow well for you? Both of mine seemed to grow very slow when they were alive.

Citrus General Discussion / Variegated pink lemon in FL
« on: January 25, 2022, 07:16:09 PM »
So I don't really have any citrus in my yard besides finger lime because of citrus greening... but I really love the variegated pink lemon fruit. I'm probably going to plant a tree under a huge oak tree in my yard. Any words of advice to increase my odds of keeping it healthy?

Has anyone tried growing this in florida? It looks pretty interesting

I'm in 10a. So I was just curious if anyone has had success with these in FL

Does anyone know if austrailian blood lime is resistant to citrus greening? Seeing as it's half finger lime genetics I would imagine so.. but they are a bit pricey and I'm curious if anyone knows the answer before I commit to buying one. Thanks

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Can anyone identify this annona tree
« on: September 20, 2021, 09:31:35 PM »
It was sold to me as a guava.. but it's definitely in the annona family. Anyone know what kind? I'm thinking maybe atemoya?

« on: September 02, 2021, 12:37:12 PM »
Anyone know what's going on with this tree? I have like 10 other annonas and all of them are super happy. I've had this guy in the ground for about 8 months. No new growth and leaves look junky.

I've tried chelated iron and fertilizing more. Nothing seems to help.
