I spotted this tree while when I were hiking.  Does anyone know what is it and the fruit is eatable or not?

Great on those cuttings and the seeding.  My tangerine tree is from seed, it took 5-6 years to flowers.  The first year of flowering were only few fruits, 2rd year was doing a lot better.  The fruit are more tasty than the one I bought from the market. 

755 has AeroGarden Ultra LED with Seed Pod Kit AeroGarden Ultra (LED) with Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit

Anyone tried this unit to root fruit tree cutting?

Since the satsuma is very hard to root from cutting.  I ordered 4 more from four seasons. I love satsuma.  I am rooting some Trifoliata for rootstocks.  Hope it is easier to root from cutting and ready for next spring.

Here is the pic of the unidentified tree flower look like.

Certainly appears to be in fabaceae.

I'm really curious as to the plant.

Finally, I know what type of tree of it.   guamuchil

Seanny, that is a good idea.  I can graft on the sucker of my blood orange tree, then air-layer in the future.  Thanks...

Thanks for the heads up Iebmung.  It is really hard to root Satsuma from cutting.  I read an article that might help increase the success rate from fruitmentor.  Coconut coir, right temp, lighting and heating pad.  I don't have the those setting, but LA current temp is around 80 degree, cover them with a plastic bag to keep them moist, moist them every today, and rooting hormone.  Just want to try it.

Thanks for the advice.  Next time, I need to find rootstock.  I don't want to mess with my current trees.

Trifoliata or swingle is great for satsuma. You are going to want to put plastic bags over the sticks you're trying to root, but I doubt they will root.

Thx Laaz,  is trifoliate easy to root?  I saw some sucker from blood orange tree start to grow.  I can root that for my rootstock if it is easier to root.

Thx Millet.  I won't move to Fl then.  Happy July 4th everyone in US.

I don't have a good rootstock right now so I go ahead to root them in the pots.  Wish me luck. 

If all failed, I will order more to graft.
What is a good rootstock for satsuma?

Thanks Bomand,

I thought order 6 buds mean 6 sticks.  Look like I got a good deal from CCPP.  Ordered 6 buds get over 12 buds.    ;D

First time order from CCPP.  I ordered 6 buds from CCPP and it arrived only 2 budwoods.  I don't know how ccpp work, is 6 buds = 6 budwoods or 6 buds in the budwood?  Can anyone answer my question?

I will try try rooting the budwoods tomorrow morning.

Thanks in advance...

If a citrus tree is in a Citrus Greening area such as Florida with active ACP, the chance of the tree getting citrus greening is about 100 percent.  You can spray all you wish but it is still about 100 percent.  All it takes is just one infected psyllid bite.  HLB presently has not cure.  The only treatment to insure that a citrus tree will not be infected would to build a screen around the tree to keep the psyllids from ever landing and feeding on the tree.

Hi Millet,

In other word, unless put the tree inside the greenhouse otherwise there is no way to prevent the green disease from infected on the tree.  If it is infected, just destroyed it.

The more knowledge gain, the more worries about the citrus tree

Thank you Yorgos.  Do you know any organic pesticide I can use to get rid of them?

I found this in Amazon.  Had anyone tried it before?

This is the best shot I can took.

I got this picture from search.  The pest from my tree look like this picture but different color.

What is a good organic product I can spray to keep the tree from pest?


I find some of them on my tangerine tree.  What is that and how I can get rid of them?

Wampee, lychee and longan are the most popular fruit tree where I grew up.  Wampee is one of the rarest one.  My family love it. 
The peel is eatable and taste like Licorice甘草, so refreshing.
Inside taste like citrus jello.  The fruit can dehydrated as sneak too. 
It totally worth the time to grow it.

I think they are nuder the same family, but I don't see any picture match to the fruit that my tree produce when I did the search.
