This is one of the best full cover of how to grow YangMei, but it is in Chinese.  Hope someone have time to translate it.

Someone said, for the best result:  Don't tie too tight.

I just read a post in a Chinese forum, thanks Bill for the link:

One of the expert the said water YangMei with a mixed beer or carbon drink, like soda with 30 to 50 time of water will help the PH level because those drinks have a high PH level.

What does everyone think about this idea?

Thanks,
Al

Here is a picture of the ruby crispy guava I germinated the seeds from.


I also brought a grafted 水蜜芭乐, don't know the English name of it, and I tried the fruit from the seller.  They are very good, similar to crystal but better

Time will tell.

I am on a project hope to develop a new or better variety Ruby crispy guava.  I germinated over 150 seeds and few seedlings are different from the rest.  Hope for the best.

If no one takes them you can try rooting them as cuttings.

I did some of them last month when a wildcat snapped two of the benches off.

Hi shmojojojo,

You got a variegated variety, ultra rare.  Maybe you can sell it for couple thousand.

Thanks,

Thanks Simon, I didnt see any sign of nematodes on my order, but I will take your advise to treat them.

There's on ebay one yangmaie for $3k.

Good luck to the winner.  I won't pay $3000 for it.  Jason is selling it for $70.

Sure, but don't forget that shipping cost more than the plant and then there is the risk of it not making it. People have reasons for not going that route.

RevivalR00ts, it is not again you.  You have no control on those bids.   
 I just want to said the bidders are crazy.  If I have to pay $3000 for it, I think I would take the risk and order from Jason.  $3000 can at least 10 attempts.

i would just do an hour Al

Thanks elouicious....
