Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 2022 Yangmei (Myrica Rubra) Group Order

THANK YOU! =)

Here is another pic:



Appears perhaps grafted, about halfway up (pic, plant is 5 feet or more). Seems a little fatter above that point as well.

...have heard and read Fingerlime grows well from cuttings.

Picked up a tree from here:

It's been a year or 2 in my possession, 9 months in ground. Unsure, but think was 3 gal when arrived.

Riding the emotional roller coaster already, lol!

Really good news though. Checked the link and saw the flight was still listed, and wondered if perhaps the flight was still on, and then told myself, "Naw, they wouldn't do that."

Hoping for smooth inspection tomorrow. If so, our success rates should be high, and more yangmei for the people.

47 was our low last night.

Ask for a replacement, not a refund.

Thank you Jonah for the info, and even more for the fat pads!

Dropped to 49 last night here. Quite an abrupt change (around 80 something in the daytime), certainly should stimulate mango flowering. More cool nights forecast too. =)

Doesn't help with germinating seeds though.

What are the jars in the 1st post? Juice?

Also, how do you know fruit are ripe?

I have a plant that is flowering and fruiting, some random optunia that I snatched a pad of from my wife's abuela's house.

Scott Bonnet does great year-round here in SoFL, with lots of rain and regular us of sprinkler system.  Similar, but better than habanero in my opinion. Got a couple of others that do well, have to look up what they are.

Exciting!!!

Thank you Bill for all your hard work and inclusiveness. Not an easy task, and most kind of you.

Where can one send mango leaves for nutritional analysis and to identify deficiencies?

Apologies if this has been posted already, couldn't find.

Thanks everyone! Ordered a Korean tea and others from onegreenworld.

Thanks. They are sold out for now though. Still looking.

Hello.

I am looking for a plant of camellia sinensis, in the South Florida/Miami area.

Open to a shipped plant as well.

PIN says they don't have them, won't for a couple of months.

Thanks!

Cherilata itself may be good rootstock; has anyone tried?

Great job Mike! Hope is alive!!

Does anyone know about compatibility with pollen from other Garcinias?

I have 2 Lucs, one very small, which will likely take years to flower. Hopefully some of the other Garcinias around can help. Would be wonderful if intermedia is a match. Lots of flowers off and on, all year.

Simon is the official TFF yangmei authority.

Forgot to mention, have 2 nice branches of Cherilata grafted on an established Gefner atemoya tree. Had several takes, but think the others rotted out due to poor post-graft care. Seems to be doing well so far.

How was that fruit!?!?

22
Whoop whoop!

New logo is nice, but don't trash the old one. Still my fav.

Pretty sure that one that Joe hooked me up with is on guanabana.

It is doing well, couple months in-ground, but not doing much above ground yet. Can tell it is firmly rooted, so think all the action this time of year is underground.

Seeds arrived today, in great shape. WOW! Thank you for extras. Really excited to grow all of these CGN hybrids and others.

Thank you mucho Matt!!

You rock Bill!

I recommend you discuss with seller doing close inspection on trees before shipping. Last order, they were held and fumigated, which likely led to much loss from stress and extended time bare-rooted.
