Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lychee X Longan Hybrid?
« on: August 29, 2020, 12:09:14 PM »
I recently bought a lychee longan hybrid at one of my local nurseries, but now I am thinking it could be the lychee bvariety "Sweet Cliff". The tree is already fruiting and has all of the characteristics you would expect in a hybrid.  The leaves are rounded like a longan but longer like a lychee.  The shell of the fruit are have very little spikes and  have greenish brown spots.  The fruit has the flavor of a lychee but with a musky kick to it.
Any thoughts?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Too Late To Start Sugar Apple Seeds?
« on: August 07, 2020, 01:04:52 AM »
Just ordered some sugar apple seeds and was wondering if waiting till next spring to plant would give them a better chance of survival. Lowest it gets around here is 40F.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rare Frozen Fruit
« on: June 17, 2020, 06:16:16 PM »
Just letting people who live in San Diego know, I just picked up some fresh frozen langsats and santols at Seafood City. While there I also saw that they had frozen purple star apple, soursop, sapodillas, and bilimbis. I don't think it would be easy to get the fresh versions of some of these so for anyone who wants the next best thing, go to Seafood City in Mira Mesa. They occasionally have some good varieties of mangos as well.


The santol

The langsat opened

I have a strawberry tree in a 15 gallon pot which has been flowering for a while now but no fruits are forming. The flowers seem to open, an then fall off a few days after. I have tried hand pollination but this hasn't worked either.
Does anyone know whats wrong?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Namwa: Tall or Dwarf
« on: June 08, 2020, 08:38:43 PM »
I recently bought what was labeled as an ice cream banana but recently found out it was a namwa. I've heard that there is a tall and dwarf type and was wondering which one I had. The plant was originally from La Verne nursery.
Any info would help!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Jaboticaba Flowering But Not Fruiting
« on: April 11, 2020, 01:09:22 AM »
The Jaboticaba tree that was fruiting when we purchased it last year has flowered twice since but produced no fruit.  They're suppose to be self-pollinating and I know they are suppose to produce more fruit when they are with other Jaboticaba trees but we are getting no fruit at all after.  The grower advised that we fertilize with 15-15-15 fertilizer but so far nothing!  Does anyone have any ideas what the problem may be? Appreciate the input!
