I'll take 25 of those Eugenia McVaughii.

Thank you!

Yeah RKN sucks. Glad my habitat isn't prime for it and that I have space to grow them that isn't my main growing space.

I'm gonna revise my post above to say that I did in fact graft them right when the buds started swelling on the grafted plants from China (for the most part). The swollen buds held on a lot of scions and pushed pretty quickly. I'll hook you up with a survivor if ya want.

I'm thinking about maybe selling a multigraft M. californica with about 3 or 4 different types on each.  Any interest in that? It wouldn't be cheap and would be pick up only.

The scions from the China plants that I grafted onto Myrica californica have officially surpassed the plants we imported from China. They are much more vigorous, and appear to be healthier.  I'm thinking that I have gotten about a 60% take rate on scions but still gonna hold out. Some of them have a good couple inches of growth so I'd Imagine those are takes.  Others flushed, died back and are flushing again, making me think they were growing on stored energy but have now officially taken.

Note to future purchasers. Graft immediately onto new rootstocks. I grafted a couple weeks after the plants arrived and the plants started to show signs of pushing buds. Most of the buds held and pushed, some pushed and withered but are coming back for a second push.

Not too sure unfortunately.  I might have to make it down to Guatemala next year to try and get some myself!

I unfortunately couldn't find a ton of info on maturity and fruiting although I can say they seem to grow pretty rapidly.  I'm gonna plant some 4" out with some Acacia and close to some Ice Cream bean to see how things will do.  Not sure about pollination but I'll do a little more research this evening and get back to you.

Definitely reccomended to be planted amongst Nitrogen fixing species and they even mentioned sowing pots with Trifolium spp.

Howdy everyone, just posted up a grip of new stuff! I am particularly stoked about the Eugenia pyriformis cultivars as well as the Santalum acuminatum!

And lots more stock left over from last update!

Yeah they are definitely pretty variable. I have a pretty good grafted variety, forget the name, but it's got  good fruit.  Also have a neighbor with a big decent sized tree  I can get plenty of seeds from

Got lots of capulins around me. I'll offer up some seeds when the time comes. Should be here shortly.

Not too bad, neighbors still drive by and drop off horse manure for f ree  ;D

I think nauclea xanthoxylon likes it super wet. Or nauclea latifolia, one of the two.

It's a bummer, that happened to me the first time more or less (got one survivor).  I'll be selling some of the duplicates of the grafted yangmei that I imported if anyone is interested in getting some recovered plants later this year.

Here are a couple of grafts that I have on M. californica.  I've had plants push pretty hard and then just brown at the tips and die. Some have dieback on the uppermost parts of the scions while still having healthy buds below, others have just deteriorated quickly and been dead scions. 

I really don't know what to expect on takes because it seems like they can push a while without having healed. I did graft pretty ginormous scions so wondering if I'm running off stored energy. 

On a seperate note, I think I'll probably have ~50 survivors out of 70


Im thinking of planting some RKN infected Yangmei at my house (not my farm).  The soil here is pretty heavy clay and the water table is about a foot or two below the soil surface, so I'd imagine this type of habitat would be rough for them to thrive in.  I don't have any potted plants on the ground and the only real major scare factor is potentially tracking RKN on my shoes to my farm if they do proliferate.

Pretty tempted to throw some in that are starting to shoot some nice healthy looking buds though. Any thoughts? Has anybody planted out so soon after getting them bare root?

Pretty much 100% positive it is.  They are everywhere around me.

I have a male tree that was confirmed by Marta.  It's a pretty decent size. I could spare some scions and hope I'll be able to graft some up here in coming years.

Syzygium paniclatum, pretty certainly.

Yeah thats my understanding as well but unfortunately regulations in california prohibit the propagation and sending off of propagation material

I have hundreds of wampee seedlings I could give a good price if you want a lot. I'll keep me eyes open for any named varieties

Broo, sending Citrus from a quarantine area to out of state? That's not cool

Last I heard the UC system was doing away with standardized testing for admission. Are the other universities you are applying to requiring it?

I move my plants with scale outside...usually the condition change causes them to no longer thrive and then I imagine parasitoids are more capable of accessing them

I'm not sure if anyone has pure pyriformis or pure lutescens? Maybe I'm wrong, hopefully.  I haven't seen anything like that become available as I see those species offered as hybrids of the two usually.  I'm definitely interested in selling some. They are still getting established in their pots but should be available in the next month or so.

Straight lutescens? Or the Uvaia in general? I'll have a couple different seedlings of Brazilian uvaia hybrids (pyriformis x lutescens) from my understanding.
