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.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Graft sun protection?
« on: April 11, 2021, 06:19:47 PM »
Whats easy to use for protecting grafts from too much sun?  I need to cover 35-40 grafts so it needs to easy to use.  Its too hot and dry here my avocado grafts are struggling once they break the grafting tape.  These are in ground trees that are sitting in full sun all day and can't be moved into the shade.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Bark graft cherimoyas?
« on: April 01, 2021, 07:16:43 PM »
Anyone done much of it?  I had zero success on large stumps, tree did not like being chopped down at all.  Did not come back like an avocado. 

I'm thinking of being a little less harsh and just cut back some 1-2inch branches and only partially top work a tree.  Can I do bark grafts on cherimoya?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Blue java bananas
« on: March 27, 2021, 04:24:01 PM »
They came out pretty good the last couple times.  Flavor and texture are good, in the past they had hard cores and I didn't like them.  These are soft and tastey.  The peels are really delicate is the only thing bad about it.  Needs propping too.

The rack was good looking so I decided to post it.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / guamuchil ?
« on: March 11, 2021, 09:23:32 PM »
Is it worth growing?  Someone gave me a tree and I planted couple years ago and neglected it and its now grown into a pretty large thorny bush.  It grows pretty aggressive, I can see this being a pain to maintain and keep in check.  Is the fruit worth it or should I cut bait now?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Grafting avocados BUDDY TAPE
« on: March 10, 2021, 12:44:41 PM »
I just want to put this here because many people are buying buddy tape. And I have just shipped a lot of avocado scions wrapped in buddy tape.  Ive got my grafting success rates near 100% now and I want other people to also have success.  Especially with buddy tape, I have some steps to follow to ensure success.  Buddy tape does not break down and crack like parafilm.  It stays soft and sealed for a very long time.  It seals in moisture very well.  Which is great while the grafts are healing.  But not so great once its healed but the scion is not breaking through on its own.  What I have found is that after 3-4 weeks you need to come in with a razor and just make a very small cut at each bud site to release the moisture.  Otherwise your scion can stall and rot.  This allows the bud to stay dry and pull some sap and start growing.  And after 6 weeks, you should very carefully remove all of the buddy tape above the graft union fully exposing the scion so that it can draw more sap and grow.  The tape is not needed after 6 week, your grafts should be fully healed on regular sized cleft grafts.  Then after 8-10 weeks or once you get a solid flush, on normal size grafts, you can remove the tape on the unions.  Dont be in a big hurry to remove the union tape unless the scion is flushing and you are sure the union is healed.

I hope that helps people, it took a lot of experimenting to get my recipe dialed in and now I'm very confident with this procedure.  Its very important to let the buds breath after 3 to 4 weeks. 

I can post some pics if anyone is interested.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / LM3 vs Lisa atemoya
« on: January 26, 2021, 07:36:41 PM »
both of these have a bit of chewyness and atemoya texture but the flavor on the LM3 is quite a bit better than Lisa IMO.  seed count was lower on the lisa.    Brix was quite a bit higher and flavor more dense on thr LM3.  LM3 has a berry or perfume floral type flavor.  Some LM3 fruit also cracked on the tree which was a disappointment.  It may have been the watering and weather we had, not sure.  I still prefer cherimoyas but this LM3 is pretty good.  I not a fan of AP or Lisa.  I won't be growing any of those anymore.
