Tropical Fruit Discussion / Ilama (Annona diversifolia) And flooding?
« on: November 17, 2020, 09:29:15 PM »
Iíve tried to find the flood tolerance of ilama, but havenít found any information. Does anyone have one on its own roots (not pond apple) that can share your experience? Just trying to determine if I need soil to plant on a mound or just let it deal with the ebb and flow of the south Florida rainy season.

I was hoping to sell locally and resort to shipping if they donít sell.

Thanks, cleaning out the shade house, too many plants I need to get rid of before they get neglected  haha

Trees grown from Raulís selecto seeds. $15 each

It kinda reminds me of a gumbo limbo seedling (Bursera simaruba)

Iíll have some in November and maybe trees

By any chance, would you have trees small enough to ship?

Its an assumption, but it could be related to enzymes in the plant needing a specific temperature for cellular processes to work.

We planted a significant amount of these seeds we sourced from Raul last year.  These seedlings for us have been growing 2x faster than other Achachairu seeds we have sourced from various sellers.  I believe we have around 200 achachairu trees/seedlings growing at our farm that range in size from 7-8ft. to newly planted seeds. We grow more Garcinias now than any other type of fruit tree.

Dang, 2x faster? I have a regular achachairu that is 3 years old and about 6 feet tall. Its my fastest garcinia. That'd be awesome if these grew faster!

Does anyone have photos of the fruit from their prodigal variety? My tree from garden of delights finally produced fruit and they seem to be Dovyalis hebecarpa. They taste horrible (like eating a grapefruit skin) and have seeds. I had tropical apricots many years ago that were orange colored and looked like little peaches that tasted amazing, but were sour.

The first is a laurel oak and the second java plum

TropicalFruitHunters, I wish I had larger root stock to work with, but I used a young lemondrop with a scion smaller than yours. Grafted June 2018 and only three flushes that don't look as impressive as your tree. I don't have irrigation on it, it gets water whenever I have the chance to go out there with the hose. I think it'd be happier with wet feet.

That's impressive growth. How big were the scions when you grafted them?

Looks like shiny flea beetle. I have used spinosad with great success on them.

Theyíre native to every county in Florida, so they should grow well. They prefer moist soil, but are an extremely hardy plant and withstand droughts once established.

Do you ever see any of the spineless peach palms down there?
