Nate, I will buy the Kadsura yellow. I had 3 seedlings (purchased) but they all died.

Sorry Kaz someone texted me about it last night and I sold it to them before I saw your message here. Next time shoot me a text, anytime is fine. Sorry to hear you lost those seedlings, they seem to like a lot of shade.

Hello fellow Orange County, Ca Fruit Growers!

Iíd like to start trading my homegrown fruit with other local members in exchange for their homegrown fruit. I think it would be a great way for people to try lots of different fruit without waiting forever to try it from their own garden. If you try some fruit you donít like, and youíre growing it, you wouldnít have to waste time growing it anymore. If anyone wants to barter please let me know. Only interested in trading with members who have been on the forum for one year minimum.

Currently fruiting now; Red Jaboticaba that are juicy and sweet, Arabica Coffee Beans, and Sugar Cane. In the near future we will be harvesting pineapple guava, dragon fruit, Citrus, Macadamia Nuts, Alano Sapodilla, Cherimoya, and more.

Fruit is elongated and larger than normal pitangatuba, there are 4 fruit on the plant right now. Seed is freestone. $95 OBO, local pick up in Fountain Valley

Weíve been feasting on Kazís Brewster Lychees the past two days. The flavor is a 10/10! Probably the best tasting lychee Iíve ever had. Very sweet and juicy with zero off taste. I could eat these all day. I donít really taste much of that rose flavor thing like in some lychees, if there is, itís extremely subtle, which is nice since Iím not a fan of the strong rose flavor in some lychees, itís like eating a flower, IMO. Also, weíve found a bunch of chicken tongue seeds  :)

Highly recommend buying one of Kazís air layers.

Or get one tree to save space and graft the others onto it. I concur on the royal crimson, very tasty 😋

Ya I should have looked back at my pictures first...the false mangosteen I had also had that pointy tip, sorry for the wrong ID Kaz! You should try false mangosteen though, I think you will like it.

Hey Kaz nice find, it looks like Garcinia xanthochymus (false mangosteen). I ate a couple a few years ago and if I remember correctly they looked like that, and the flavor was similar to what youíve described. I enjoyed the fruit, some were sour and some were more balanced with good flavor.
Please save me a couple seeds 😉

Awesome find on the new Annona! :) Reminds me of the Rollinia Parviflora Iím growing, it supposedly produces small fruits as well, that look like mini Biribas, and itís also cold tolerant, it survived many freezes this year outside unprotected, as well as a couple of hail storms.

Looking For: Tall Tree Pots in and around Orange County I can pick up. Thanks

Hey Marcos! First flowering from the sweet uvaia seeds I got from you in 2020  :) Hopefully get to try the fruit!

Hi Kevin, any tips for improved fruit set? Did yours fruit on their own after first flowering?





Marcos is a great seller and this is a beautiful Eugenia with gorgeous new reddish growth, and it flowers at under 3 feet in less than three years. Get you sum seeds!

Fruit punch was one of our favorite mangos this season. Lemon Zest, K3, and PPK were also fantastic.

Good looking out hammer! Thanks so much for posting, now I donít have to drive 6hrs to try the fruit... Have a great 4th! ✌🏽

Landed my first one but unfortunately had ants tunneling in it. Hope some of it is salvageable.

That donít look ready, doesnít look like it formed right and the color is off, prob cause it wintered over...It seems when pineapples set fruit here in the fall, winter over, and then ripen in the spring, they usually arenít very good, it seems they really need our summer heat/sun to get to their full potential. You want them flowering/setting fruit now, winter, or spring, that way itíll ripen in the summer, the taste and quality is night and day...Itís the same with dragon fruit. Congrats on your first fruit tho!

Hey Tru how are you (sorry I like rhymes)- The S8/Sugardragon cuttings in the picture I posted are curvy because those ones were growing over our wall and high up on the trellis. When theyíre on a trellis they will bend and curve once they start to grow over the top of the trellis. The ones that hang low grow pretty much straight.

Iíve also heard Voodoo Child may be the same as S8/Sugardragon as well, our Voodoo Child vines and fruit look identical to our S8ís.

My recollection is that S8 and voodoo child were part of the genetic testing project from the UCI researchers and found to be different. Flowers were a bit different as well.

Thanks for clarifying John 🤙🏽

Yes you should definitely highlight this one, itís very good, I could eat them all day... Do you think itís larger than other vista whites youíve seen, or are they all like this? Iíve also noticed itís a vigorous grower and needs to be grafted onto a strong branch.

21
Thanks Kaz means a lot coming from the loquat king! ;) Thereís actually a couple really big ones on the tree not in that picture, check this one out, itís as big or bigger than a golf ball. Iím gonna send a fruit to Abirkett2 since he bought some scions so he can taste the goodness before he grafts.
I think my original scions actually came from you.


large Vista White

If you have an extra tree or scion(s) please pm me. Thank you

Kaz,
I think you have something special with the white flesh seedling fruit you brought by today. Everyone has said itís the best loquat theyíve had. Absolute perfect balance of sweet/tart, with much more sweetness than tart, and it seems like every fruit taste similar, so youíve got nice consistency with this one. Much better/sweeter than Vista White, or any of the other whites Iíve tried. Wonderful fruit!
Btw the ďNancyĒ is from me, and thanks for putting together such a great list.

Good stuff
Not at $50 per seed :o Iíve heard of inflation but damn!
