Tropical Fruit Discussion / Pineapple ID?
« on: May 14, 2023, 08:06:59 PM »
This fruit is an odd shape and color, it set in the middle of a freeze but has gotten bigger. I think it's Sugar loaf or white jade, but it doesn't look like I remember those fruits looking. Any help with the i.d. would be great.

Also I'm always looking for different pineapple varieties and would be happy to trade slips.


I'm getting ready to prune back to Guava Mango (Sein ta lone) and I hate to see the cuttings all go into the trash. If anyone is looking for this variety message me. Just pay shipping US only. I'll probably prune this weekend.

If anyone has some venus scions they could part with I'm looking for it.


Clearing out some space in the Nursery. Bigger plants ready to go. Pick up only I'm in Central Florida. I'm not shipping the trees.

Sanford 7 Gal $400

Spirito 3 Gal $250

Otto Andersen Branca Vinho 3 Gal $250

Coronata Restinga 3 Gal $250

Plinia phitrantha tree that produces a white(green) fruit. Is precocious fruiting in about 5 years from seed.  Easily container grown, I believe the one I have is in a 10 or 15 gallon container. Fruit is very sweet. Packs of 5 seeds including shipping inside the US for $30.

Rosa de pescoco grafted onto sabara rootstock. Up for auction again.

Should be fixed.

I have Plinia Phitrantha "Vino Branca" (Otto Andersen) seeds available for $5 per seed Min 5 seeds and $5 Shipping.
I have really struggles to grow this variety from seed in the past, and caution everyone who is interested that this variety tends to be difficult to grow from seed.  That being said seeds are available. I am experimenting on soil mixes that I think will help the seeds succeed, and I tend to believe that this variety needs very well draining soil, even more than other varieties.

« on: September 23, 2018, 07:38:24 PM »
Scarlet Jaboticaba is easily the most precocious plinia I have found fruiting from seed reliably in about 3 years. The fruits are like a slightly sweeter red jaboticaba. They are pretty tasty as earlier stages of ripeness, however the skin doesn't thin entirely until they are fully ripe. Seeds are $5 per seed with $5 Shipping inside of the US. 5 Seed minimum. I will be sending out seeds starting next Monday October 1st. PM with orders.

I picked these off of a friends tree in central FL yesterday. They didn't know the variety. I looked and thought maybe florigon, but i'm not sure. All the seeds I have opened up have been really tiny taking up a maximum of 1/4 of the seed husk. I appreciate any help!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ID This Fig? Please?
« on: June 05, 2017, 05:10:01 PM »
A friend gave me this fig last year before he moved up north. He had a story about this fig having origins in the holy land and somehow being connected to religious figures. In any case I've never kept figs before and have no idea what I have on my hands. I'd love to hear anything about this fig! Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for a few avocado scions
« on: February 02, 2017, 10:17:53 PM »
I currently have an avocado seedling that is probably 6 years old. I cut it down to about 4 feet and am looking to top work it. I'm looking for 3 good varieties to work into the tree. Doesn't have to be anything special, I just don't have much access to budwood (Anyone in Central FL who has some to spare, I would gladly trade or purchase scions). Thanks for the suggestions and material!
