Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Huge Loquat Leaves
« on: January 20, 2022, 04:22:54 PM »
I have a loquat seedling with a 16" leaf. it was growing in the middle of nowhere, in very dry sand before I took it. i mostly thought it would be a good rootstock but now looking at the leaf size i wonder if the fruit will be large too and good!

Please advise where to buy meiwa in florida.
Thanks, Ana

I had the same issue a few weeks ago. Almost overnight, one of jabos Escarlate turned brown. Since than it's dropping leaves. Nothing was done lately. Another one stands right next to it with no issues. Ana

39 was the lowest in NE Orlando last night.
I brought inside only rooting fig cuttings. Jackfruit seedlings don't show any issues.

On etsy, there were lots of osage seeds cheap. Somehow they grew so slow, and will no be ready for grafting any time soon. For the same time, rooted cutting of osage is a perfect rootstock now.


I want to watch all his videos!
Thank you for sharing the link!

I grafted che only on osage orange. I need to try to root che cuttings, just for fun. I know osage scions root like crazy. I ordered 2 osage rootstocks. Cut off tops rooted so fast. Seems easier than growing them from seeds.

Great video!!!

Please recommend tomato varieties for florida. You have so many new to me varieties!! ::)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Starfruit- Anyone Growing It ?
« on: October 27, 2021, 08:51:07 AM »
Here, people say: a one starfruit tree will feed you, your family, your neighbors and co-workers.
I have Kari variety. It gets deep orange color, large fruit, very sweet, fruits twice a year from size of 3ft, loaded with fruits and flowers now. I never liked them from stores until i tried from someone's garden. Huge difference.

I would love to grow them but they need more chill hours than we have. Its hard to find a good quince in florida, they are mostly too hard and not good. Ideally they are chewy and juicy. They are deep yellow color when ripe. I was able to buy a few good ones recently at fancy fruit and produce

I am not sure what wooden apple is but there is nothing better than ripe quince. It has unique taste and smell.

If i walked into a store with all fruits available and had to buy only 5, i would get:
Sugar apple

I have the same issue with a few potted trees, not citrus. I tried sprays, replanting in different soil, fertilizers, macros, part shade, full sun... Nothing works. 

This plant deserves a chance!
It could give you great quality fruit without grafting.

I have never tried rollinia before, they are not sold on Orlando.
Its delicious! I thought rollinia has spikes. This one was smooth.
I will plant seeds. Thank you!!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sugar apple or not

Please help identifying the fruit.
I bought it in the local store as sugar apple.
Texture is creamy and nothing chewy. Very fragrant. A little grainy right near skin Seeds look just like cherimoya seeds.
I thought it was taiwan gold sugar apple, and wanted to plant, but now not sure.
