While trimming back dead branches I accidentally caught the trunk and was amazed to see green!

This was on my black peak




The earlier pictures I showed of buds were on my biqi and anhai

2
Honestly I think its the quality of the trees more than what in doing. I had them in too much humidity and they were developing that white fluffy mold on the dead tips. So this is my new setup for now.

I've got a few hopeful buds on mine

I don't think I've ever actually had valencia.  Do you juice them?  Or eat out of hand?

You can eat them slice by slice but they are hard to peel and mist out those essential oils when you ory at the skin.

Juiced they are amazing, you can also cut them into slices and bite into the side. That's a good route

7
Man, that picture of the sliced orange sure makes them look fresh and tempting. You sure you donít do food photography on the side.

Lol you're giving me way too much credit :D

Should we start a separate post aboit the journey and techniques to keeping these trees alive.

Is a shaded greenhouse a good idea? Are night time lows still too cold?

I actually purchased this plant from a long time member. He says he thinks its self fertile but admits he will combine a lot of pollen together and bulk pollinate so it's hard to be sure.

And since I've just got a hold of the plant I don't know how it tastes.

Google says it's a mild grape flavor and can reach 19 brix. I've seen it hit over 20. Several dragonfruit growers I know have described it as being among their favorites.

I had to heavily trim a very mature dark star (over 10 years old)

The small cuttings are 14" ($10) medium are $15 and the very large ones are $20. Some are over 30" long!

Your fruits look nice, how does it taste ?

I have limited experience eating loquats so I wouldn't know how to compare it to Big Jim. From my memory of eating Big Jims, this Mcbeth tastes better. But I prefer a bit of tartness in my fruits to balance so maybe thats what's going on. Loquat fruit also varies so much in taste depending on what color the fruit is.

Thanks for input.
To say Shamus is an expert on tropical fruit trees is like saying islet at Marriott hotel last night and now I am qualified for brain surgery.  The only thing he does is find someone else's post online, copy it verbatim and claim it as his own.  Oh, and the other thing he does well is qualify as being one of the most miserable, hateful persons on the planet.

Why hateful?

I would gladly stick it to those monopolizers.

Put me down for 4 to 6
