Tropical Fruit Discussion / big ole jabo
« on: May 11, 2014, 01:18:51 PM »
Thought I would share this picture. It's my friend lazaro and his jaboticaba  tree. He's from the southern part of Brazil where jabo is native to. He has several, this is the best looking one.
He also lives one house away from the Winchester property. Mr. Winchester used to own a ton of dairy farms and land in Boynton, notably the old Motorola land, and everything where renaissance commons and target and best buy and Wal-Mart and the like are currently built upon. In his yard is a 30 year old jabo, a 40ft spreading sapodilla, and many mango trees.

Does anyone local to palm beach county have a mature banana mat in need of some thinning? I just cut down a bunch of palms and am looking to put banana trees in their places... Not super picky, I'll dig them out myself. If you want to trade bananas for bud wood from any of my trees, I am open to that.

I know PIN has them, but I am wondering if anyone knows somewhere local to Palm beach county that they are, so I could save myself an hour drive or so. Thanks

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Polyembryonic sugar apple seed
« on: January 23, 2013, 03:55:01 PM »
One of the Kampong Mauve seeds I got from a fruit from mikesid's house turned out to be polyembryonic. I have 3 shoots growing from one seed. This is the only one out of about 50 seeds I planted that has done this. Hoping it stays strong and grows up like it's parent tree to give me some good fruit.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / cogshall mango blooms

To those that have Cogshall mango trees, there is luck for us this season. Doing my walkaround this morning, saw my newest growth had blooms starting on the end of it. The rest of the buds are super swollen and ready to push any minute.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sri Kembangen blooms!!!!
« on: October 28, 2012, 02:49:07 PM »
Went outside to do the daily rounds on the trees, and found my SK carambola had some blooms on its lowest branch. Very excited about the blooms, and these are the first ones since I bought and planted it over the summer. Kinda perplexed as to why the blooms are on the lowest and smallest branch my tree has... any ideas on why that is?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Hurricane Sandy
« on: October 25, 2012, 11:23:26 PM »
Just wondering if anyone that is on here is in the caribbean and experience any damage to their trees from this storm. Pompano has had gusts in the high 50s tonight, with the strongest weather supposed to be happening tomorrow. OF COURSE I am on shift tomorrow and wont be able to watch after all my new plants and trees, just hoping nothing snaps...

Tropical Fruit Discussion / keeping a mamey small
« on: August 28, 2012, 12:34:32 PM »
I've searched here and on google, and have found mostly nothing on how a Mamey Sapote would do being kept at about 8-10ft tall. Do they respond well to a yearly pruning to maintain a small size? Or would the pruning make the trees produce less fruit?
