I bought a fruit, ate it raw, liked it and planted seeds. I don't know how good they will be but i do find their leaves stinky.

Question, is Lisa is the hardiest Atemoya on your property? What variety was the third one? how did that do?
 

I had 2 Lisas, 1 geffner and a few different sugar apples. All in 7 gal pots, standing next to each other, all the same age and trunk size. Geffner died back to main trunk. Lisas show no damage and i see flowers are coming now. All sugar apples appear dead. The only hope is that they will come back from roots.

I am in north east Orlando, official lowest temp by weather report was 26f but i think we got lower. I lost all 3yo sugar apples (thai, na dai, kampong). All 3yo atemoyas are fine. Geffner died back a little and Lisa is totally like nothing happened.
Starfruit , 3 yo, died to bigger blanches but alive.
Mai1 jack in 7gal, could hardly handle 30f so it was inside.
Unknown jack that had no issues with 30f, died back to the last 10inches of trunk.
 Kaffir lime has bad damage while other citrus are fine.
Red jabos, restinga have top damage, Sabara is like nothing happened.
Funny, i had dill and parsley not covered and nothing happened to them.

I have a 3 ft sweet tamarind in 3 gal pot from ECHO that was outside the night we had a few hours of 27F.  No leaf damage at all. Everything else around is brown..

I have a mai1 jack that totally got all leaves gone after 32f. I have seedlings of unknown jack that planted outside and totally looks fine after 32f. This time i put a plastic container over them and  after 27f they show very little damage. Seems like jacks cold tolerance could be very different.

I got 27f for a few hours east Orlando.
Weather app was showing 30f but my thermometer disagreed. Jackfruit, unknown variety, that was undamaged after 32f, looks sad now but hopefully alive.

Rootstocks i received were too skinny so, not to waste scions, i had to graft on established Fuyu and hachiya trees.

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!

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 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.
