« on: November 24, 2023, 05:18:11 PM »
For the first time ever I accidently found a handful of P coronata restinga fruit ready to be eaten.
So far the tree had only fruited in the Spring.
Fresh seeds $2.50 each

Iím in Martin County a little north of you. Mine in ground for 3 years is incredibly vigorous and over 15 feet tall, even after talking the top out. It produces 100s of fruits each year and most go to my chickens. It is ok at best in my opinion, much better avocados out there.

How much chicken manure are you giving that tree?

I planted two Novak phithrantha seeds and one has noticeably larger leaves
and is less compact than the other tree?
You may not be certain until your tree fruits

Here is my scarlet tree with its first fruits

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Siam Jumbo mulberry cuttings

I was going to trim my tree and am offering Siam Jumbo Mulberry cuttings for $5 each.
I have a limited amount as my tree is less than a year old but has grown nicely this Summer.
The tree fruited in the Spring and the fruit was large and very sweet tasting. So far it's a winner

I have a Big Jim and a Peluche loquat in my yard now.
They have very different leaves and you may be able to figure out what you
have. I have heard Big Jim is also called Golden Nugget
How big is your tree?

Forecast looks interesting next week.
54 degrees two nights in a row will be a shock
Then it's predicting only mid to lower 80's for highs going forward
Won't be long I'll be worried about the cold nights

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: The secret to growing a healthy Pitomba?
« on: October 12, 2023, 10:50:12 AM »
I have my remaining tree in the ground with mulch encircling the base.
I have been fertilizing the past year with organic cricket frass. I throw
2-3 big scoops around the trees every month from February to October.
I put a couple scoops of coffee grounds around my trees a couple times a
year and keep adding mulch as it breaks down. I did the same thing for the
pitomba that didn't thrive. I also have a drip on the tree but I haven't watered as
much as I should and it seems fine. It had a huge crop this Spring. One other note
I was under 32F for over 6 hours two Winters ago and the pitomba had some minor
burn on outer leaves only. I lost allot of trees those two nights and the hogg plum
next to it died off to the ground. The tree I have is a winner. The other tree was the

super cool !

How does it taste?

I have a very lush pitomba tree that produces allot of good fruit.
I bought another one years ago at home depot. It was the opposite.
It never thrived and the few fruit it produced were terrible tasting.
I dug it up and threw it away

How does it taste?

This is my Pickering. It held probably 60+ this past year

I really enjoyed a florigon and pickering every night after dinner. Good contrast of flavors
