Iím out east in Manatee County, but I often have people drive out from Tampa/St.Pete for hard to find tropical fruit trees.  Odenwald Honey and Tropical Fruit 14825 Sugarbowl Rd, Myakka 34251.  Open weekends and holidays.

I bought this with some Imbe seedlings but this one has vastly different leaves, so I am puzzled as to what it might be.

My Hak Ip was the first to show bloom forming, early January 2022.  I haven't seen any on my other varieties yet.  Last year they bloomed at the end of January.  Myakka City 9b

Thank you K-Rimes, but we now believe it is a Garcinia mangostana. The Grumichama seedlings have much thinner leaves, when young.

I ate the fruit down at Fruit & Spice Park but lost the label I made.  The seedlings have germinated and I wonder if anyone can help provide its name.

Most are beneficial carnivores and will eat harmful insects.

Blueberries are a pain to grow here.   Commercial growers use a lot of chemicals and I know of several who have given up and sold their land.  As said above, keep them in pots and it will be easier to maintain an acid soil.  Peat moss will lower the Ph.

I have more than one sapodilla tree now, but even when I had just one it would self-pollinate.

My Coconut Cream tree gave me her first ever fruit and it was exquisite.  Great coconut flavor and so sweet.  It was like Golden Syrup had been poured over it.  I can't imagine there could be a better tasting mango.

I have both varieties and they have been popular lately, as people buy the trees/seedlings once they taste the fruit.  I am not set up for any shipping and probably a little too far away from you.

Excellent, it says of Lakoocha "The extract of the fruit reduces hair loss and stimulates the propagation of hair".  Good news for me!

You could be right.  Most of the photos I have seen of Kwai Muk ( Artocarpus hypargyreus) are fruit that are more symmetrical.

I ate this fruit at the Redlands Fruit and Spice Park, but didnít see a label on the tree.  It was extremely tasty similar to a mango in flavor.  Any ideas of its name?

Great idea, as the rodents eat through the fruit bags.  I'll have to find some of those plastic boxes.

I grow lots of red ones from seed.  I love them, but my wife hates them.  I did the old planting a black seed and of course it reverted to red.  I also bought a black tree, which is sweeter than the others, but is not black.  Recently I bought another grafted black Surinam Cherry and it has fruit developing, so fingers crossed this will be the real deal.

Thanks for the link to the interesting article.


I have an Anna and this Dorsett planted a year ago in Central Florida Zone 9b.  This is the first apple I have seen developing.  Most of the year this area is dry, but in the autumn the ground water table rises to the surface, so I mound my trees.

I'd like to add that mine are only 2 feet tall and were not affected by the one night of frost I had this year.

Insects don't normally bother will them, but will suck on extra ripe ones, when the sugars are highest.

No members do not get to go in earlier.  The sale starts at 9 and everyone has the same opportunity.

I still have some Pickering 7 gallon trees and Coconut Cream 3 gallon for sale (Myakka).

Could be air layered.

My Fuyu woke up a month ago and now has flowers.  My Tanenashi only just started sprouting and does not have flower yet.
