Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cherimoya Pruning Help, tiny trunk
« on: February 23, 2023, 12:54:44 PM »
I would appreciate advice on how to prune this Cherimoya. Unlike all my other Cherimoyas which grew upright with a dedicated trunck and branches, the trunk on this one is only about 10" tall then it branched out. Is this ok or should I prune it in some way to make it grown up further before branching out? Thank you.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / To Tip/Scarify or Not.
« on: September 23, 2022, 09:22:06 PM »
I know some people use sandpaper, but I just take an exacto knife and remove a bit from the edges of the seeds. It is said that this can lessen the chances of the seeds sprouting, but I have not experienced much of that. They start so much faster. Here is a pic of 1 pot with scarified, 1 without, everything else being exactly the same.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / White Sapote Fruits Growing So Slow
« on: August 30, 2022, 08:58:04 PM »
This is my first year getting fruit on my grafted Redlands White Sapote. The tree is probably the fastest growing tree I have ever had, but the fruit is incredibly slow. Fruits are around 5 months old and barely bigger than a grape.  Wondering if others have same experience or maybe these ones the first year just aren't going to make it. I am located in central florida, 9B.

The variety I have is a little gritty and I hear Isan Indigo and or Na Dai are better, more chewy. Looking for a fruit or seeds so I can plant out my own to compare. Thanks.

WTB Ax and Orange Giant Dragon Fruit Cuttings. Thanks.
Just got some AX cuttings, but the quality is bad, really dehydrated.

Looking for Orange Giant Dragon Fruit Cuttings. Thanks for any help.

I have a red, white, yellow, and Sabara Jabo tree and am located in central Florida. I am looking to put some in the ground but can't find any information on average size these varieties grow to except for Sabara which says 10-15 feet in California. If you know or have experience, I would love to know the difference in mature height of these varieties.
Much appreciated.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Best Grafting Technique for Atemoya
« on: March 31, 2021, 09:42:30 AM »
I am new to grafting and have had about equal success with a couple different techniques so far. I would love to hear from members that have overall successful experience.
What is the best grafting technique, after grafting should it be placed in full sun or filtered sun? Also if this help with the answers, I am in central Florida, 9B.
Thank you.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Redlands White Sapote
« on: June 27, 2020, 05:53:15 PM »
I just bought a grafted Redland's tree 2 months ago and it is growing really fast here in Central Florida 9B.
I was wondering if this variety is self fertile, how the taste is compared to other varieties (especially ones that grow in Florida)?
Hoping to acquire some Younghan's Gold scions to hedge my bet on this one tree.


Want to buy Younghan's Gold and/or SueBelle White Sapote Scions. I only need 2-3.
Please let me know price and shipping.

Soursop seedlings$8 each plus shipping ( I have 4 right now, but will have about 20 ready in a couple weeks). 
Black Sapote Seedlings $10 each plus shipping (total of 4).

Only trade I would be interested in is a Suebelle or Younghan's Gold White Sapote scion or Dragon Fruit cutting varieties: Shayna, Hylocereus Costaricensis, Yellow Thai, Lisa.

Message me if interested.


Shipping in the U.S. only. I have multiples, but seed quantities are grouped below for pricing and shipping.

BLACK SAPOTE AKA Chocolate Pudding Fruit.  Taken out of ripe fruit on 4-26-20.  Seeds are $1 each, plus 4.00 shipping, unfortunately due to the thickness of the seeds they force me to send these as a package and not a letter. Not happy about that.

Soursop Seeds (Annona muricata) AKA guanabana  or graviola.   5 seeds for $7, free shipping. Taken out of ripe fruit on 4-26-20

Please DM me directly for order.


Looking to buy Suebelle White Sapote. Having difficulty finding it at nurseries in Central Florida.
