Citrus General Discussion / Re: Thornless Mexican Lime
« on: Today at 05:15:21 PM »
That is correct, Mexican limes are very small. See the UCR datasheet, says 1" to 1-1/2" size fruits.

If you wanted larger limes you should have purchased a Bearss lime, they can get to 2" to 2-1/2".

Pau, CA is strict on citrus movement so its best to just buy the scionwood to graft citrus to your tree. Here's the UC Riverside budwood program you can order different varieties of citrus (over 100 varieties).

You can register online here, then place your order, you should get it within one week after cut date shown. Prices have gone up.

1) Here's their website below

2) You must first fill out the registration form

3) Here's a peak at the list of citrus varieties they have now

Janet, I doubt your guava from Guava King (ebay) is the same source as the one from Trianhthy but the fruit looks similar.

Good news that his guava is very good tasting and large. I also purchased a few different varieties from Guava King a year or so ago. The trees that survived looked like the fruits were different for the box store (Home Depot, Lowes) plain varieties. One tree I got is his Crunchy Pink, supposed to be seedless, hope the fruit gets as big as yours.

Galka, thanks for the info on source for your trees.

Janet, that is a large fruit and seedless so that's a winner. I hope my grafted seedless guava from Trianhthy and Crystal seedless from Xshen grows faster so I can check out the fruits. Both of their fruits are large. The shape of your fruit looks similar to Trianhthy's true seedless guava.

Wow Janet, flowers already at that size is very interesting. Yes, sounds like a good idea to eventually graft on a Cherimoya tree. I have one huge Cherimoya tree that I cut back to 5 ft each year, and when I try grafting anything to it, the grafts never take. I'll probably just do an approach graft on my only seedling tree with a smaller plant I have in a pot.

Lovetoplant, my base tree on the Hyakume was the Giant Fuyu. I remember it had large rounder shaped fruits (compared to Fuyu) like yours. It would get plenty of large fruits, but I didn't think it had a lot of taste to me, and the normal Fuyu seemed to taste better so I ended up top working all the branches, so I don't have any Giant Fuyu fruit to try.

Here's a few more photos of my fruits.

I did find some seeds in my fruits I ate. Since this tree with the VS has two other grafted branches of very good navel oranges, maybe the seedling will be different.


There are some advantages to growing the Vainiglia Sanguigno here in SoCal. Like I said, the taste of my fruits got better, now it is not just sweet, it has a little tartness, peels like an orange, so I like it. Also, all my Sanguigno fruits are already ripe in November before any of my other navel oranges so I can eat them earlier. The only other orange I have ripe is the Valencia which has continued to have fruits ripen from Feb - Nov.

How large is your seedling tree now? If I get fruit on mine, I will let you know, maybe we can exchange cuttings later on.

SHV, your Suebelle fruit looks nice, I don't remember mine having such nice color. Probably because I have to many fruit trees and the squirrels (and other animals) eat it before it ripens. The tree looks very healthy, I should have put mine in the ground but I didn't, just left in in the same pot for over 5yrs and it was neglected so it died.

I did see a video about white sapote in FL and the person also mentioned the excellent tasting fruit at F&S park, he mentioned it was a seedling tree there.

Joe, yes the leaves do look similar. When you get first fruits, please share a photo.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Ok, thanks for that info, I might try and graft a few cuttings of my seedling to my Cherimoya now in case the tree dies like the other one.

Lychee, pummelo, loquat.

Brian, your pot size if fine. I had my Suebelle and still have the Vernon is a small 7 gal pot. Just have to many fruit trees to put them in-ground or in larger pots. My plan was to just cut some scionwood and grafted on my large in ground white sapote trees but there were just to many other interesting varieties I had to graft on my multi-grafted trees first. Still don't have extra branches on my larger white sapote trees in ground to graft the Vernon (7 gal pot). Just grafted 2 more new varieties to add to my collection.

I'm starting over on my multi-grafted in-ground trees (one is McDill seedling, other is Yellow Sapote seedling which has flowers). I have 24 varieties between the two trees. Next year I should be able to taste the fruits of the McDill seedling (has flowers now) and Yellow Sapote (has flowers now).

Galka, where did you find the Taiwanese white and the Peruvian white?

Does anyone have an Egyptian guava? Does the white flesh or yellow flesh taste better?

SHV, my Suebelle is in a pot (5 yrs) and it always had very small fruits so I got rid of it. Also have a Vernon in a small pot and the fruits were small as well (2"). I think they needed to be put in a larger pot or in ground.

Do you have any photos of your fruits, I would especially like to see the photo of the one from the unnamed Fruit spice park tree. Could it have been a Redlands?

Ok, Robert and Jack, now I did my final taste test of the Supersweet and Younghan's Gold fruits.

Robert, yes you were correct, the fruits may not be as good on the Supersweet since it is the first year with fruits. But now after eating 3-5 fruits, the taste started to improve the more I waited for it to turn slightly yellow skin. Also, the last 2 fruits fell off when I touched it slightly, so it was light yellow skin and ready to fall off the tree.

I will post some final photos of both the Supersweet and Younghan's Gold later below and give my impression on their taste.

Jack, the white sapotes you gave me (malibu #1,#3, walton, Clytia, C.Tera #6,#7) are doing well. Both Malibu #1 and #3 seems to be the slowest growing for me. The other three are growing well, they are all grafted on my McDill seedling tree and the yellow sapote seedling tree (from CSUF). I already got a small fruit from Walton this year, and it tasted good. I hope to get fruits from Clytia and C. Tera #6 & #7 next year. The Clytia is a fast grower, has many flowers now. These grafts were also on my large seedling tree in my son's yard and doing even better but i had to remove that tree and it did not make the transplant in my yard this year (lost 34 varieties).

Brad, the fruit looks good. If it tastes good, then it's a winner.
It does look like Jalisco Red to me. It could be a pink or red color flesh depending on the photography.

You can send me the broken branches so i can graft them up.

Diana, wow, good to know the juice has many uses for cooking. The beef salad sounds good.

Here's a few photo of my fruits, it doesn't get that many fruits on the tree yet.

Yes, you're right, I just squeezed it like a lemon and boy was it bad. It had such a strong taste, not like a lemon or lime I ever tasted. Ok, on the next ones I will try to remove the peel first before squeezing the juice and try again.

Tasted like kerosene.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Makrut lime
« on: November 22, 2022, 06:21:56 PM »
I have a Makrut lime tree which has been giving some fruits. I know people like to use the leaves for cooking, dishes.

I wanted to ask if anyone ever use the juice from this fruit. It seems to have lots of juice in each small fruit so it is nice, but I didn't know if it can be used for anything.

Here's my fruit photos.

Bill, I did remember he was selling the scions of Saramuyo. What do you graft them to?
Can you graft these to cherimoya or atemoya?
Please post some photos when your tree has flowers and fruits.

Joe, I took some photos of my Merida amarillo tree showing the leaves.
Here they are:
