Tropical Fruit Discussion / Engkala seedling burn
« on: November 24, 2021, 10:36:15 PM »
Anybody have any idea whats going on with this Engkala seedling? It had been growing rapidly after the first sign of germination occurred but then has seemed to stall out recently even dropping new leaves. Now what seems like overnight it looks chlorotic and burnt. Currently under grow lights with temps in high 60s low 70s.

The pictures cbss_daviefl posted really shows when the fruit starts to seperate
between the segments and is getting close. Your fruit has no seperation between
the segments. I like to squeeze the fruit also morning and night. They do get soft
fast. I had rabbits eating the fruit from my trees and also raccoons this past season
and had to time it right. Is the tree really in NJ? In my experience in florida the fruit
is more sweeter in the Summer and Fall when the temps are warmer. The trees go dormant
when the sunlight decreases and any Winter fruit has not been as good?

Yup tree is in New Jersey in my greenhouse. I had African prides ripen indoors last year but they were pretty flavorless. Thats why I'm testing them in the greenhouse this year. I'll see how they are, might have to experiment with them next year and defoliate them earlier in the season to time this right.

Also have a poly tunnel for overwintering a bunch of potted figs with pakistan mulberry, pomegranates, pineapple guava, cold hardy citrus, chilean hazelnut, arbutus, sago palm, agave, mysore raspberry, cardoon and artichoke in the ground.

Just for overwintering so nothing is in the ground.

Based off this picture does anybody have any insight into how far from being able to be picked this lisa is? It's the only one on the tree so I'm not trying to mess this up.

Only time will tell. Its definitely worth experimenting.

I think mine is probably around the 5-6 year mark.

This is a pic from the end of last season. Its put on some more growth this past year but is currently going dormant in my basement at the moment.

Seedlings from seed planted 10/8/21

I grafted coyo on a avocado rootstock earlier this year. And I recently got chucte seeds from Oscar. I am hoping they too sprout so I can regraft that coyo onto its own seedling for safe keeping.

Picked up some seeds from Oscar earlier this month. 4/5 seeds have sprouted in just 20 days,

Haha with the cecropia and the durian you officially have the bug Nick C

Oh definitely haha I'm in over my head with plants that have no business being in Jersey. Even have a mamey sapote flowering currently.

No fruits but I planted one of these out in my experimental hoop house this year. Gona add an extra layer of protection see if I can get it thru the winter. Anybody have any experience with sub 20 temps?

Does anybody have any experience growing these? I have two seedlings growing right now but can't seem to find too much information online about them. All I got so far is a cauliflorous eugenia from New Caledonia.

Thanks for the reviews Jabba and pineislander. It was not one I had planned on getting due to its size, an opinion the two you have reinforced. I wonder how Nick C in New Jersey is going to fare with his plants?

Only time will tell. Just moved them indoors for the season.

Might be but I guess I am too lol
