Because they were so overhyped everyone on this board was sending me messages asking for seeds and cuttings.  The trees were ljke a curse, people wouldnt leave me alone about them.  So I chainsawed them down and chilped them.  Had to get rid of the curse.

Thanks for clarifying it.  Don't have to look for them any more :)

Brad, I am also interested in buying Dolores and Jalisco Rojo seeds as well if and when they are available.

Last year, I was able to successfully graft Jalisco Rojo but it died when we had frost one night.

Indian red can be a possibility but they are generally larger than this one.  Tropic Pink may be another possibility as color in first few pictures looks pinkish, they tend to be small and very fragrant.

It certainly does not look like "Allahabad Safeda" as Safeda means white. Allahabad Safeda is supposed to be white from inside. However, I am no expert in guava and will be curious to see what other opinions are. 
Did you happen to buy it from seller "Guava King" on ebay?  There are reports of misrepresented guava and other fruit trees from this seller in this forum.

Crystal seedless is another one which gets mentioned quite often on the forum. It is is hard to find in the nurseries. Some forum members sell it's scions for grafting.

Buddy tape works very well and even though it is expensive and difficult to find, it is worth it. Parafilm works fairly well but it starts cracking in dry hot California weather and has resulted in graft failure for me in the past. I use doubled up parafilm at the graft union to keep it tight as buddy tape is too flexible. Presco Texas brand flagging tape or even regular nursery tape work well at the graft union.

Apparently Xie Shan fruits can have different shapes in different seasons.

One user (Dave in NoVA) reported that during a year when there were only a few fruit, they were larger and had bumpy, puffy-skin with fairly prominent top knot. During another season when there were many more fruit, they were smaller, had tighter skin and no top knot.

Unfortunately, houzz does not provide a link for individual post but thread is located here:

I just googled and came across this thread:

Pictures in this thread look similar to Kaz's pictures.  So there must be two types.

Quite inetresting.  My Xie Shan was grafted on Kishu Mandarin interstock when I topworked my Home Depot bought multi-grafted mandarin tree.

My scions were shipped from Northern California (Salinas?).  Did your come from Riverside?

Here are the pictures of my Xie Shan fruit.  I had grafted Xie Shan in March and has only one fruit.  It looks more like jim VH's picture - not sure how representative is it of real Xie Shan fruit given recent graft.  Scions were purchased from CCPP.

Received my scions, wrapped and well packed.  Thank you for the extra scions and seeds

Got my scions yesterday which were good quality, packed well and shipped quickly.
Thank you Kaz for all the extras.

PM sent

How old  or tall are they? Thanks

Yes, I will get some of their DMOR9 Himalayan when it's back in stock. I have purchased from her, scions are very good/healthy. I purchased many of her variety except the Himalayan (it may have been out of stock).

Yes, I did see her write up on the white mulberries (White Pak, Australian Grn, Saharanpur) and I bought all three of them. If they are the same, I don't know why she sells each one under the three different names. I purchased all three types just in case her's is different than what I already grow.

You might already have DMOR9 Himalayan as your comment here states that you were able to root it (or may be it did not survive?).

Received quality scions in excellent condition.  Thank you for all the extras.

Label of Macho 2.0 suggests a drench rate of 16-32 oz per acre but does not give a drench rate per tree.

Other formulations which have similar amount of Imidacloprid suggest an application rate of 0.1 to 0.2 fl oz (3 to 6 mL) per inch of trunk diameter measured at 4.5 height.

As far as mixing ratios are concerned, this Q&A ( suggests: "The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint per foot of shrub height (or inch of trunk diameter for trees) but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per foot of height (or inch of trunk diameter for trees) as well. Denser soils such as clay do not accept water as readily, so the lower volume of water is suggested.  Since sandy soils can accept more water, using the higher volume of water is preferred"

This wasn't my only experience with Kaz. I had previously purchased Persimmon scions from him which were good sized, well packed, reasonably priced and shipped quickly. Those grafts are already pushing!

Received my cuttings today - in excellent condition and fast shipping. I had ordered Pakistani White only but was sent white as well black Pakistani mulberry scions.  Thank you for all the extra scions!

Can these be rooted easily?
