maybe some sort of annona, crush the leaf and smell it yo

I think the last speech i gave was in 2014 to the Tropical Fruit & Vegetable Society of the Redland (Rare Tropical Fruit Conference)...about 7yrs ago.

I figured that was as good as it gets, and really didn't have much new information to share, so I stopped giving speeches and stayed at home on the farm to take care of my plants and animals.

I turned down a lot of requests to speak over the years, and recently tried to turn down another, but made a joke "if they let me do a zoom speech I might consider" ended up biting me in the butt, because now with COVID, all the speeches are via i had no way to refuse (my usual excuse is, I have no employees, and have to stay and watch the farm...and it's not worth it for me to travel for a speech, I'd make more money and have less stress just staying at home).

So now I'm preparing a speech for the same society that paid for my last speech in 2014, the Tropical Fruit & Vegetable Society of the Redlands, on the 31st of March 2021.  The same subject as before, but now with 7yrs more experience.

To see the speech I assume you'd have to pay the dues for the club....maybe worth it because of all the zoom speeches they'll have?

I think they may film it and have a way to share it, but don't quote me on that....

Wow, Adam, you've hit it again what kind of ratio are you running with early flowering seedling! You the man! :)

i didn't do anything special Robert.  It was more luck than anything, because i planted over 100, and only about 2 of them flowered so early, this one is much shorter than the other tho, maybe by's the smallest Plinia ive ever seen put on a flower, if it sets fruit, it will be laughable to look at.

i think about 2.5-3yr, but i lost track, so it could be older....

no it's just random chance, I've planted over 50 easy, and only one other flowered so soon, but it's 4x taller.

yes it's a seedling of anomaly, but i haven't had any of the others flower this soon, so small

So, jokes aside, how old is the anomaly Jr?

Do anything experimental to help it induce, or just happen randomly?

Very nice find indeed.

lol nobody cares's all about those aroids now....

Aroids aren't too shabby in their own right.   ;D

true, are there any good aroid boards you can recommend?  I need something that's non-fruiting, that i can keep in the house and stare at.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Peculiar Flowers of a Eugenia uniflora

Here are some pics, note the shape of the anthers, the petal count, and of course the size.

I put a normal black pitanga flower in the pic to show them side by side.

some pics of grafted anomaly trees, each pic represents an individual flowering tree (there’s about 12 of them here grafted flowering out of 16 total).


as of today:

I have noticed that many fruit species can have precocious individuals that fruit at a much smaller size. Could it be either a Red Hybrid or Red which are known to fruit at small sizes? This could just be a bit smaller than usual.If we forget that they are nearly all hybrids anyway that would make it a M. cauliflora. I have a feeling that most dwarfs are a form of aureana or cauliflora.

couldnt disagree more...but i see how you might say that, being you're on the other side of the planet, and have never grown this variety, or seen it in person...

if it's just a red seedling that precocious, why does it behave differently in terms of heat resistance?  why do all the seedlings that arise from the mother tree have foliage that is easily discernible from the red?

I was hoping to get some advice on growing persimmons in FL. I hear they are pretty hit or miss.

I currently have a south florida/Hudson persimmon.

I just ordered a few small trees. Fuyu, chocolate and hachiya. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

easiest fruit tree to grow, i believe they graft them onto native roots stock, here they fruit and grow with absolutely zero help.

Hudson/South FL, probably my best fruiting variety, compact, heavy fruiter.

Improved Plant Regeneration Method for Artocarpus lakoocha  (seeds i got from Oscar years ago, now a tree with fruits setting, even after 25F, dying back to the ground, now 10ft tall approx, 8yrs old?)
