Bill, I'm also in san diego area.
My name is Joe and am planning on making the drive up and picking up my order and anyone else who would like me to do so for the SoCal. I live in El Segundo near LAX. I have 4 Yangmei trees that survived the first order and are now planted in my front yard. I plan on taking the day off work and driving the same day the trees are released and become available. If you would like me to pick up your order please email me your name and complete order and Ill put it on spreadsheet to keep track of orders.

HI Joe,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Avocado poll
« on: November 22, 2021, 12:41:36 PM »
The last avocado tasting you hosted, I remembered the Carmen was in the top 3. 
I dont know about carmen really i only have a couple immature trees.  So far thry have only made fruit 1X per year.

Has anyone try to grow / taste Golden Lady?  I believe only Wong farm near palm desert sells this variety?

anybody knows the nursery's name in San Diego that sell m. californica?  The pictures that kaz posted about that nursery were deleted.


Is this rootstock suitable for growing in container?

Please see attached link if you would like to bid on my Yangmei fruit tree grafted onto California native rootstock (M. Californica).

Here is some additional information

Up for auction is this Biqi variety of Yangmei grafted onto Morella Californica  rootstock.

Yangmei is a delicious and exciting new fruit crop in the US and trees are extremely rare. This is the first ever Yangmei grafted onto Morella Californica up for public auction in the US that I am aware of.

Yangmei is an evergreen tree with a densely rounded canopy that produces small fruit that varies in color from white, green, red, pink and black.

Fruit from the Biqi variety are dark in color, almost black. The fruit size is larger than a quarter but smaller than a half dollar and this variety is highly coveted for its sweet taste and smaller seeds. Biqi has a slightly sweet smell with a tinge of berry and a hint of Osmanthus.

The Biqi fruits I sampled had a Brix of about 13.4% and tasted sweet with a combination of flavors from Blackberries, Pakistani Mulberries, Strawberries and something very unique that was reminiscent of Sandalwood.

Many people have difficulty growing Yangmei on its own rootstock and the Californica rootstock may or may not grow better for them. 

This tree is grown outdoors in full sun but it gets placed under some shade on extremely hot days. This tree is in a #3 container and has two grafts that have pushed.  The larger branch is 6.5 inches long and has approximately 25 leaves.  The smaller branch is 2 inches long and has 12 smaller leaves. There is also one additional grafted bud that has healed over but it has not pushed yet so Im selling this tree as a double graft.

I keep the pH of my soil around 6.3-6.7 and I only water my plants when the soil has dried out about 70% or more. For the best chance of success, this tree should be planted into the ground because the soil moisture will be easier to control.

In most cases, Yangmei will require both a male and female (Dioecious) tree to produce fruit. This tree is only grafted with female scions from the Biqi variety. 

For a male pollinator, you can plant seeds or purchase seedlings (if available) in the hopes of getting a male.  I plan on selling grafted male trees in 2022 but there are no guarantees.

This tree is for local pick up only in the San Diego, California area. If you need shipping, you will have to make your own arrangements to have someone pick up the tree and ship it to you.

Total tree height with pot is 28 inches. Plant alone is 21 inches.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: The Reed avocado thread
« on: October 28, 2021, 02:42:37 PM »
I think what you have is a nabal (reed is an offspring of nabal).  Nabal has alternate bearing habit whereas Reed produced every year.
I didn't realize that Reed was such a popular variety that had merited it's own thread. I guess my post is just eye candy or to create a bit of jealousy, lol just kidding.  I've seen several quite old avocado trees in socal. Here's my tree that several people confirm to be Reed.  It's an old tree and I don't know how old.  I never water it. Every other year it would produce at least 500 - 600 hundred fruits. I tried counting the fruit before but would stop at about 500 before giving up. Someone said it looked closer to a thousand fruit, hahah.

Ken 60acre..that's huuge..may be sell to me a couple acres  ;).
We recently purchased a 60-acre farm in Escondido, CA for my hundreds of fruit trees in pots that are overdue to be put in the ground.  My thought is to build a shade house, put those fruit trees there for 2 months, get the irrigation lines in, prep the soil, get rid of ground squirrels/gophers, and put the trees in the fall or spring.  The exact details on how to do so remain unclear to me...I have no experience running a farm or planting such large numbers of trees.  Any suggestion is greatly appreciated. 

If anyone is interested in having a visit, please PM, especially if we have already met at Brad's gatherings. 


Citrus General Discussion / Re: picking cutting for propagation
« on: July 03, 2021, 11:47:23 AM »
I accidently broke off a branch from my C-35 I thought why not try to root it?  I wrapped the broke off cutting in buddy tape, put it in soil in a solo cup then cover the cup with a clear plastic bag to create a mini greenhouse.  I left it in shade and 6 weeks later, it rooted.  The cutting was small about 1/8 of an inch.  Wonder if I can try the same thing with a thicker cutting?

What should be the size and age of the branch/cutting for propagation?  Do you pick the cutting when it is still green and soft?

Looking good Brad!! you have enough land to secede from CA  ;D
I love this place but the politicians and public healthy officials are going to drive me out of here. Their authoritarian bullshit is becoming unbearable.  I need to move...

I was wondering about that.  You Cali guys put up with a lot of stupid government induced shit.

They are seriously ramping up their BS by the day it seems.  Its amazing people are on board with some of this crap.

You are right..may be I will bring ice cream.

Beer doesn't go with fruits. At least for me, it would give stomach irritation or upset.

If you want alcohol then I would get someone to bring an non-complicated ice cream such as vanilla, strawberry, pistachio, mint with chocolate chips. Green tea ice cream?
Then pour some Southern Comfort over it. If not SC, then some kind of brandy or cognac. Slivovitz even?
Just my two cents worth :) Have a fun time tasting fruits and testing the brix on the ice cream 8)

I'll bring beer.

knowing what we know now from simon/brad and others, I suggest Kang to organize another group buy.

what do you spray with?

Julie, those are probably Japanese beetles..
the only way that i was able to control them was spraying the lawn and stopping the cycle..
the beetles lay eggs in the ground, the eggs become grubs(which eat the roots of the lawn) and then they become beetles and eat your fruit trees leaves.. it never ends

after i started spraying the lawn, the problem seemed to get better

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Avocado starter fertilizer
« on: May 17, 2021, 12:31:31 PM »
I thought you've been using doesn't have plastic coating.
ive used a lot of this polymers in the past but at this point Im against it because its basically like putting plastic pieces all over the orchard.  Im not at all an organic nazi but this stuff I just dont want in my land.  some of the plastic products people use are bio accumulators and our bodies are not able to get rid of it.  and it accumulates in the food chain.  I dont want plastics in my environment or food. 

As far as their performance as a fertilizer, yeah its awesome they dont wash out and dont burn.  Its just the leftover shells I dont want so I will never use that again.  No offense at all to you pine islander or anyone else using it, its just not for me.

of all the pictures I've seen so far, An Hai and Bi Qui have the most growth.  Anyone seen any growth on Dong Kui or Black Peak beside Simon?

Has he try bringing pollinator into the greenhouse?  Doesn't have to be honeybee..anykind will do such as mason bee ect?
Growing outdoors wouldn't be possible for sure, not even in the most southern parts of the country. That would be only possible in greenhouses which would be above or around 10 C during winter. My friend has these conditions, avocados are growing great, but he told me about avocados making only male flowers or something along these lines. As far as I know, he never brought avocado to fruit even though they flowered.

Curious..what is the tile for? 


Bagged and hidden
A month is enough?

For any Hawaiian out there especially if you live in Maui, do you recognize the location in this video?  I'm tempted to make a visit to  Maui just for this.

Behl had resolved this issue and we both had move on.  As for you..whatever, you don't matter anyway..BYE.
Behl, these are the rejects that sometimes visit the forums that disrespect you without knowing what youve done for us.....dont need their money or business. Thank you Behl for your work here.
