Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Growing subtropicals under eucalyptus- plant suggestions?

Two of the most aggressive fruit trees I've seen has been figs and mulberries.  Have you tried those two?  If they failed, I'm not sure if you have much hope, ahah.  Depending on how large the eucalyptus are have you thought about pruning any branches that crosses over to your yard, in addition to also root pruning anything crossing over?  I once read that they don't even recommend composting eucalyptus leaves, not only do their allelopathic compounds effect plant growth but reported to even kill earthworms.

yeah I've fallen in love with the way breadfruit looks after this. Guess I never looked into it at first because of the name ? idk. but wow. Probably my favorite from the whole thread tbh

Well tru, I'd love to grow breadfruit in 9b but we're too cold for it here.  Beautiful, ornamental, distinctive-looking tree with interesting-looking fruit.  Love the tree's large palmate leaves.

Only had it once in Belize many years ago.  The landlady there where we were staying in San Ignacio peeled it, ti cored it, the cut it into wedges and fried it.  Delicious but indistinguishable from french fried potato, but that was a good thing. 

Someday would like to try breadfruit prepared in other ways but I have never seen this fruit for sale in any central Florida markets.

Cheers!

Anyone have knowledge of this cultivar?   It's supposedly a red fleshed variety.

Idk if these would work but large trees usually provide a nice little microclimate anyway,

any small jungle dwelling plant comes to mind, those that have naturally evolved to only get dappled sunlight. Off the top of my head I think of chocolate and many garcinias

^ I'd look up some fruit places near where you expect to be staying and call them up, more often than not they're just like us and love talking about fruit, the process, tips, everything ;D

Probably Chinatown on Oahu.  Maybe check in with Ono organic farms on Maui to see what they're expecting in Feb.
