big tech trying to stifle discourse yet again /s

I am growing out a good amount of imbe to try out as roostock down the line.

If I remember correctly, Bobby B. hypothesizes in a truly tropical video that the male trees have more pointed leaves and the female leaves are more round.

You remember correctly. He does indeed say that. Considering the size and scope of his Garcinia collection, I certainly trust his expertise on the matter. It means that I have a male Imbe. Of course, even with one plant I (or anyone else with only a male plant) could get lucky and get some fruit. Adam Shafran has only one Imbe, a male, that also produces a small number of female flowers. If I remember correctly from one of his many videos, he talked about how it is common for male Imbes to produce a small number of female flowers but that female plants never produce male flowers.

Will the females still set fruit with no male pollination?

I am curious to see this video, do you have a link?

I have few large seedlings, it would be good to compare. I am seeing mix of leaves some are slimmer than others and some more pointed within the same tree/trees:

I was just browsing trade winds and saw that they have the red gummi-gatta seeds for $7 a pop. Thought I should spread the word since I'm passing on it.

turpentyne as a buyer in Phoenix I have never had plants confiscated but some sellers might have had a different experience.

I just had my first surinam cherry. Does anyone prefer the red variety over the darker hue varieties? Seems like everyone likes the darks more

I saw some recently for sale on Lara farms website.

I have had horrible luck here with lychees so I'm staying away

14
I also hopped on that Amazon deal at the time and have a few bags of osmocote tucked away.

 Iím not agriculture expert by any means but it is alarming. In the southwest we are starting to face water restrictions and I havenít looked lately on how  that might impact food supply on water intensive crops. One thing I did find out is while Brazil is a major food exporter they donít produce much fertilizer in the country. By the end of the year international food security is likely to become a large concern. Iíd reckon that the west will be okay but sub Saharan Africa, Middle East and south east Asia will be heavily effected. From what I recall food insecurity was one of the major factors of the Arab Spring. With everything else going on the world itís tough to try to look in a crystal ball and make predictions on near future outcomes. But I have probably been locked inside too much due to COVID that I donít want to be a doomer.

I'm going to update my import permit. Can you describe whether the lucuma is dry or moist?

16
What a crazy looking fruit

17
Someone was kind enough to send one my way. I wish I was more patient to wait for seed but Iím not

18
I have this fuzzy abiu seedling I am trying to get rid of. Purchased the seeds from fruitlovers on a whim but I donít want to baby it this summer just for it to die in the winter

Happy to answer any questions and I can try to work with the buyer if the location is in a tricky place

Bidding ends tomorrow to ship on Tuesday.

I have a 3 gallon pink wampee tree that I am thinking off getting rid of, not the best for container culture. Is the fruit worth it? To my understanding the pink wampee may be a different species

21
Iím interested. I can send you some photos of what I have this weekend. Stupidly I bricked my computer last night and can send you what Iíve got soon

22
I killed my only E. Mattasoii a few weeks ago and traded away the few extras I had. Would anyone be interested in a trade for a seedling?  I have a lot of plinia seedlings going from trusted online sellers so let me know if you are interested. Have a good weekend

23
Understandable.

24
Would you consider shipping on your 1 gallon annonas you have for sale in your other post?
