FYI you can use google or duckduckgo to search this forum, it is better than the built in feature

https://html.duckduckgo.com/html?q=favorite%20citrus%20poll%20site%3Atropicalfruitforum.com


I found it:  https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=40363.25;viewresults

Wow yep thatís it. Thank you! I actually tried using google before but I think the indexing was messed up?

There was once a ďFavorite CitrusĒ poll but now I canít find it. Can someone link it if they saved it? Can it be a pinned post?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Best White Sapote Variety? (California)
« on: February 27, 2021, 11:19:36 PM »
Guys, if you had to pick 5 of these 8 varieties, which ones would you choose? I'm primarily looking for flavor and the lack of bitterness. Sweetness and fruit size aren't important.

1. Suebelle
2. Vernon
3. Walton
4. Lemon Gold
5. Santa Cruz
6. Leroy
7. Younghans Gold
8. Nies


Sc400 once told me
here's what seems to come up a lot (as the best varieties):

- Rainbow

- Malibu

- Sunset

- Fairhaven

- Leroy

- Lemon Gold

- Cuccio

- Santa Cruz

- Redlands

Imagine taking a cotton ball, wetting it in mild sugar water, and putting an edamame bean in the center. Thatís what it tastes, and feels like. The seed usually already starts germinating in the fruit and tastes like edamame. The flesh clings to the seed which is why you get an earthy edamame taste when you eat it.

IMO (at least for the one I tried, I think inga Edulis?) the fruit is good but the flesh ratio was too low, too clingstone, and I dont like the earthy edamame flavor that comes from the large seed. The seed easily breaks apart when you eat it. Overall I rate it 6/10, if I saw it in the store I wouldnít buy it unless it was a new variety I havenít tried. Also the tree is supposed to be gigantic, I wouldnít waste space on it in the ground, although it is a nitrogen fixing tree. 

There are other varieties too that are supposed to have a better flesh ratio and maybe more freestone. I planted one of the seeds in a pot and Iím growing inga laurina in a pot which is supposedly a better variety.

If you have any E4 seeds to sell, hit me up! Been looking for a good abiu to put in the ground here. 😁

A seedling would be a new variety though

An easy fix that works for me is clicking the url and visiting it again. Refreshing doesnít work for some reason when coming from google, but visiting the same exact link works.

Hi
My favorite litchi is khom. I have 15 varieties. About 10
never bloom. Isabela, P.R. is too tropical. Every year my amboina bears fruit sweet and sour. Sweet heart is another great litchi.Mauritius too sweet for my taste

Where did you get your khom? I found this pic online

Congratulation to another acquisition!

It seems difficult to get a seedless tree.
I've given up.
Any one selling seedless scions in Spring?

My flowering Emperor is asking for a buddy so I might end up with another Emperor.

Any of your lychee flowering?

Check out Ong Nursery in San Diego, they sell a seedless variety. The one I bought from them is forming flower buds. I'm not holding out hope for fruit though.

Do you know if their seedless is San Sue Lin? The large, totally seedless variety?

When I spoke to Quang, he didn't indicate what the source was. He just mentioned that he has 3 seedless trees growing on his farm in Fallbrook.

Dyk how much that seedless costs?

This is my seedless .Brought from top tropicals. Bears fruits every 4 to 5 year. Not a great deal!

I think thatís called ďlate seedlessĒ or something. Not the same as San sue lin. Pretty sure mike will see this soon and reveal more lychee information lol

Don't get me wrong I applaud the pioneering spirit in tropical fruit growing and don't want to be the 'sand in anyone's Vaseline' but I am not so sure achacha can be a star. Success in bring a new fruit to the public isn't easy. BTW mangosteens routinely handle morning minimums to 3c or 4c so long as it warms during the day and mins are persistently at this level. I checked the lowest winter temps of orchards growing mangosteens in my area last winter in the Tully/Innisfail stretch and a few spots dipped below 5c. My place had 7c and durians as well as mangosteens of course show no ill effects at 7c.

Iím trying to plant mangosteen and pulasan cause one spot at my place never goes below 40F or 4C and it only goes that low for less than 2 hours

Yes it looks like a box of Bos 3s which is the same as kwai mai pink. The positives of growing this variety are that they have low chill requirements for fruiting and fruit reliably and heavily. The fruit themselves however are not deep red, are quite small and the taste is mild with little of the richer lychee elements like rosewater flavour.

Yeah the taste description matches. Still waiting for the day I can buy/grow San sue Lin, Erdon Lee, and maybe fzs (unless itís just the same as my sweetheart)

One day I saw FZS fruit available on my Asian delivery app and even though my order went through they still ran out of stock by the time they tried to deliver it..

I would hate to hog the limelight and it would be great to hear an achacha lover defend them.
First itís giant seedless lychee, now itís giant seedless mangosteen? How am I supposed to get all this in Cali lol

How could I forget acuminate. I am referring to selections of these species of course.

So if you could only plant 1 garcinia in the ground would it be the Ecuadorian macrophylla? I heard purple mangosteen was still better than lucs and achacha. Has anyone grafted purple to lucs to see if it helped with hardiness?
Or should I just plant another lychee?...

75
Did you know Mauritius is just a selection of tai so with slightly redder skin? The Indian varieties are just not on par with the Chines ones btw.

how do you know everything about lychees? lol you should write a book and introduce erdon lee and seedless to California
