Trees are both sold

its sap, you can ignore it. 

This mango tree decided its time to set way too many fruit.  Its annoying because I had to spend a lot of time thinning it out.  Last year it did it a little and the fruit that weren't thinned stuck on the tree and were tiny.  They don't self thin like a an avocado.  Its like a peach that Ollie mentioned.

Just try it and see how it is.  They should be plenty ripe by now, its earlier than hass.  In about June its a super oil bomb.  By February here they are very good better than any of the other winter fruit.

40L is too small to produce avocado I think you need something more like 200-400L

Avocado tree is much bigger than dragonfruit and monstera plants.  Thats why I'm saying growing it and expecting fruit indoors is not practical.  Growing in a large greenhouse is doable as Mark in Texas has shown us he can do it without much problems.  If you search for avocado trees fruiting in pots theres really not a lot of examples.  Ive seen a few of them that are producing and look happy in large pots but its pretty rare.

Any avocado can produce in a pot.  The question is how big of a pot and how much fruit will you get.  And how easy will it be to keep the tree happy in a pot for the long term. 

It would help to see the tree that won't fruit.  Are the trees mature/large enough?  They make a big bloom?  Or we are basing the idea that is can't work off of just 1 or 2 data points?  Growing avocados indoors is not practical, in a greenhouse thats kept from freezing it should be possible.  We have a member here Mark in Texas that grows avocado in a greenhouse.  There are flies and bees that pollinate his trees.

Hello yes I have enough for another couple boxes but I'm down to sir prize and hass only.  Pinkerton trees are stripped clean and did not flower again this year so they will be 2 years away for the next ones. 

I doubt you can grow papaya and mangos "without any problems" but can't grow avocado.  That really doesn't make sense to be honest.  Both of those are more difficult to grow than avocado in a non tropical location. 

Thats looking promising!

Hello, my plants are all still pliable and not dying back.  I am considering wrapping some of them entirely in buddy tape.  Just to seal in moisture and keep them going as long as possible.  I will wait one more week then inspect the roots on 1 plant to see if the tree is trying to come back.  They are being kept in the garage where the temperature is nearly always 70-80F and under weak grow lamp on 24/7

i noticed theres no buds on any of the trees.  the rootstocks from the local nursery, covered in new growth and buds.

Although not about compatibility, I saw this post from behl:

I only started a couple grafts last year, but the healthiest are currently on a Honey stump & Gold Nugget tree, in-ground.  I tried a couple on Cara Cara, but the in-ground ones didn't take and the potted ones are a bit sluggish so far.  Since the in-ground Cara didn't take even though it had calloused and was looking good, I had pruned it by half already, so at least i have a rootstock sucker now to try again later.  You could also skip the interstock with a low bark graft.

thanks for your knowledge and the past posts.  it sounds like any mandarin will be ok.  ill try and find one of the ones mentioned like tango or gold nugget on c35. 



I only have these 2 extra pieces for sale.  30$ plus postage for both pieces

Please post here if you want them.

my problem is I dont have rootstocks, I need to purchase some tree thats already grafted and graft onto some interstock. 

So which type of citrus would be best to graft sumo onto anyone?  Just get another mandarin tree?

If people are trying to message me and I dont respond its because I get overloaded or don't have what you want and just quit responding.  It seems like messages are coming and I try and respond to them all but sometimes its too much and I get 20 messages at a time and just can't respond to them all.

Murashige is a Hawaii selection that is a heavy bearer with fruit ripe in late spring and early summer. The fruit is large and pear shape, with a small seed and a dark green skin. It has excellent flavor but ripe fruit does not store well.

this is a hawaiian variety that needed corrective pruning on a small tree.  i saved the scions in case anyone wants to try grafting it.  theres a few nice hardened off scions, the rest was still soft.  but theres some good bud in there if you know what to do with it, it will grow.

15$ for all pieces.

8$ for small flat rate box.
