I planted the Ruby supreme 1030 from lara farms. I get worms in every single guava the tree gives me. Maybe I just have fruit fly really bad in  my area :/

That's awesome! Do you have to deal with fruit Flys/worms in your peaches that far north? I'd imagine not.

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!

They seem to have a slow death after winter. I guess it's the cold that gets them

Why does every abiu I plant die. It's the only tree I haven't been able to get going. 10a FL

Sorry to change topic a bit. It just seems there a bunch of people in here that are familiar with abiu

I planted them in ground at the end of my property because I know they aren't supposed to need much care. I mulched them pretty heavily and typically only water them if it hasn't rained in a while.

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

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?

I managed to get my hands on one recently. I cant find much info about it besides it's supposedly a decent variety. One of the forum members said it's not self fertile. Can anyone confirm this?
