Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Help!! Guava tree leaves are dry
« on: September 15, 2020, 05:01:27 AM »
Guava trees do this if you keep them inside. Mine are doing the same when I overwinter them in my house. They drop leaves and put new growth after. Just don't over water your guava thinking it's thirsty. It will recover.

I have three fruiting trees.  One of them weeping and more productive so far.  The fruits are a bit different in shape and big.

I posted pictures on this forum before I think. They will turn yellow and look nicer than the ones from the link above,  those pictures are mine by the way. I liked the taste but I can't compare to the red or green regular finger limes, never tasted them. I will post a picture of ripe yellow giant finger limes if I find it. My tree almost died this spring, just started to come back, so no new pictures of fruit, sorry.

I'd say it's a White Jade.

I guess I got lucky. The one I bought at Publix was smaller and slightly giving. I left it on a counter for a few days till it started to smell and got softer. Turned out delicious.  It was about 10 pounds for $0.99 per pound.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Malaysian Red Guava Ripening
« on: January 30, 2020, 09:10:50 PM »
I have two varieties, Malaysian and Thai red. The trees look similar but fruits are different outside and inside. Both taste good, although I like the Thai better. I pick them when they become fragrant, the skin changes color and they are falling to your hand or in the bag. If you live the fruit on the counter it will start to spoil.  Better to eat it after picking. That is my experience.

Han Sen, I received my package yesterday. Very happy with the order. Everything looks nice and fresh. Thank you so much!

I have Thai and Asian guava trees. Thai was tasteless the first year and got better the next. It needs to stay on a tree to get fully ripe. Asian... I don't know yet. Sets a lot of fruits, bigger in size but fruits get ugly closer to ripening.

I have sowme Crystal airlayers rooting out right now.  ;)  Iíll probably put them in the sale section later or maybe throw one up on eBay to see how it does.
I'd like to get one from you. Also need to airlayer mine. How long they take to root?

It sounds like the one unknown variety I grow and I really liked the fruit. The best tasting very juicy.

Nice on growing the pups, now you can see see if the first fruit was a fluke/overripe or if the great tasting experience can be repeated. Keep us posted in time.

JoeP450, I had two plants. Another one was too young to produce fruit but did and it was 'lost' in the garden, in a small pot so the fruit was small. I didn't think it will develop at all but it did. An animal got it before me but there was a piece I could cut off and taste. The taste was the same yummy.

These pictures were taken under the light inside and the color looks yellow. You can see that the pineapple isn't overripe.







This  looks more true to the color.

Wow Iíve never seen a translucent pineapple before, looks really interesting. Are you growing those pups?

-Joep450

The pineapple looks over ripe and starting to ferment.

Simon, it was perfectly ripe. I thought so too when I cut it opened but the taste was incredible. I've tasted rotten pineapple before. I will post more pictures tomorrow.

I had an amazing pineapple to taste this year. Bought two plants at a Flea Market with no name tag but they looked very healthy and different from what I grow. The seller didn't know the variety name. Well, they fruited and the fruit looked long conical in shape (weird) and a bunch of pups and suckers. The whole plant looked like a bush with the hidden pineapple inside..  ;D The taste of this pineapple blew me off. It was so sweet and juicy. It was gone in a few minutes, lol. The inside was translucent white/pale yellow. So, I thought before it was a sugarloaf but I had one before that was different. I looked it up and found a few videos on YouTube about Eleuthera pineapple and it looks very similar to what I got. Does anybody else grow this pineapple and can tell me what variety is it?

Some pics.
