I have one growing right now.  Small tree.   Flowered two years now, but all dropped.   Just put inground this winter.  Hopefully, the fruit will stay to confirm that it is red and seedless.

I have not seen any june plum variety with big fruits in the USA.  In Asia, the fruits are of the size of avocado.

It is a Lisa atemoya.  I have a few plants of this and have been eating the fruits for almost a decade now.  It is our favorite.

157
I have a few remaining baby plants from this year cuttings in one gallon. 2 Thai jumbo, and a few 3 unknown types( I lost the labels of the parent plants.  Then I forgot to label these cuttings during transplant, now I don't know what cuttings belong to what parents.  They are likely Black King Kong  and Black Pearl or Black Diamond.)  $15 each.  LOCAL PICKUP ONLY.  In last year batch, a few plants fruited in this size,  lol.  They grow fast.

Thai jumbo:


A few unknowns in 3 groups:

LuvFig, my Thai Jumbo  is big, sweet, and crunchy.  Last year, it gave me 3 crops; however, only main crop is abundant.  This year it only has two crops.  Note: wax apple fruits get sweeter with age, less watering, and longer duration (hang time) on the tree, similar to figs.  Thinning the fruits and maintaining constant water is also the key to prevent dropping and cracking and getting quality fruit.  If the fruit is bagged, it get bigger and develop acidity.  Fruit exposed to the sun turn whiter and sweeter, but smaller and less taste.  Pollinated fruits have seed.  I would recommend this variety.

I'm looking to get Thai long green to add to my collection since it is rare:

I found this sites showing how to.  If you know of some other video, let me know the link, so I can add it here.  That way, we make good use of our combine effort.

How is the taste and hardiness compared to the Dream? (I hope you do not name it Dream cherimoya, since Dream itself has a messy story of being a cherimoya or atemoya :-))

Does F1 has the firm texture of atemoya?

162
Just coming back from my neighbor to check on the remaining aired layer.  Got two fruits to taste.  Supple texture, intense sweetness and acidity.

Has about 30 seeds


Has 10 seeds.


An aired layer I got from her tree.


163
My seedless from my neighbor looks like the one in this video.

My next year most anticipating red seedless guava.  It is a small plant.  It dropped flower last year and this year.  It looks similar to this.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIuj2r3MrQI

JoeP450,

there are a few crunchy seedless green guava.  I have another plant with round leaves.  The fruits are perfectly round and less productive.  I got that aired layer plant from my neighbor a few months ago.  Hopefully, it will fruit next year. I also has another oval shape seedless, it died on me last year.  There are also pear shape seedless as well.

There is also another crystal that is having a few seeds, and its leaves are round.  I think Xshen has that one.  Xshen also has Thai seedless and Taiwanese seedless.

165
Today, I gave a few pounds of Thai Jumbo wax apple to a neighbor nearby.  In return, I got a few pounds of guava.  He said the plant was brought from Mexico.  It has intense sweetness and acidity, even after he over water the tree.  The fruit is not too crunchy, it is not soft.  It is kind of supple like a hard Fuyu persimmon.  It has no fragrant. It is very productive.
 This is the best guava I have eaten. 

I have done two air layer of the plant.  He will get one, and I will get one.  It is over a year now, and the aired layer start to grow root. Hopefully, it will work, so I can have the plant. I will try to grow from seeds as well.



Your guava looks similar to China White guava.  I do have this but mine is mildly sweet.




I used to have china white.  It was too astringing, and not sweet enough.  I chopped it a few years ago.

166
Yes, it is difficult to graft the guava. If you can get hardwood it is best, but semi-hard is ok as well. Just graft it immediately and watch out for any mold on the scion. Seanny has an interesting method of grafting guava and he has a high success rate.

 I found the link. I will try that method. Thanks.

167
Seng, those guava's look nice and big. You can also graft his guava onto a tree from Home Depot (5 gallon pot).
Since the cutting will be fresh the graft should work fine.

I did last year and this year.  They all failed.  I have a few seedling that I can try again.  The scion should be semi-hard wood?

168
Ok, I just cut and ate my green seedless crystal.  It is a little crunchier than the one in post above.  It has only two seeds.  Sweetness and acidity is almost the same as the one in the post above.

I bought a seedling from Exotica almost two decade ago.  This year it is now starting to fruit.  Massive size tree.  Root can be invasive.  Large delicious fruits. The fruits are astringing.  The riper the fruit, the less astringing.  However, there is a way to get rid of the astringing. To get rid of astringing taste: 1- put it in plastic container. 2-(optional) put a pinch of salt and ground chili. 3- close the lid. 4- very ,very gently shake using circular motion, not up and down motion.  The key is to tenderize or bruise the internal of the fruit until it is so soft and even begin to explode. 5-eat the exploded or very soft ones. 6-continue shaking. 7-go to step 5.

sc4001992, it is mildly sweet.  Some fruits are crunchy, while some are soft (most likely pollinated by near by plants).  No fragrant at all.  Because of these characteristics, we love them. We can eat more without getting sick of the smell or concern about sugar level.

173
sc4001992, usually, the Vietnamese fruit variety is larger than that.    I bought a 1 gallon plant over a decade ago from Exotica.  Steve name it, 'Best Ong'. I assume it is a seedling of fruit from Ong nursery.

"Are you saying you bought seedlings in a 1 gallon container that turned out to be really sweet, or are you saying you have a tree that produces really sweet guava and you are growing two seedlings in 1 gallon containers? How come some fruit are red and some pinkish white inside if they are from the same tree? What variety is the mother tree? Another seedling?"

CaliLowWater, over two years ago, I bought four seedling guava plants, each was 1 gallon. This year each plant is producing fruits, which have more seeds, sweeter, but much smaller than the parent fruits.  The fragrant was as strong as the parent fruits.  They are of unknown variety.  It is most likely from India.  The owner is most likely from India because of their name and look, and I saw a few plants that are known in India.  The picture depicted the mother plant fruits in various stages of ripeness. I was trying to see what ripening stages that the fruit can be eating. I sold two plants already.  I keep two plants to evaluate to see if the fruits can be bigger.
