Now that’s an expensive scion! Ridiculous...Is there anyway to treat scions for HLB before sending? Like dipping them in a peroxide solution or something?

Thank you Mike! I’ll be trying that

Will pears graft onto anything else? Pears and Loquats are in the same family...any chance they’re compatible? I’d really like to grow pears but would like to save space and graft them onto something else, if possible?

Yes Biao, I think myrica was used in the import docs. Good luck!

Does “Rubra” need to be included? There are many different Myrica species.

I’m sorry if I missed it. When you say ‘the first order page’, are you saying the order placed earlier this year or this order?

Is this hog plum cutting really flowering already? If it is, should I remove it and let the energy go into the other vegetative growth that’s pushing? Thanks

Can you please describe what the nauclea latifolia taste like? Texture? Is it a good fruit for young kids to eat? Thanks

The weather doesn’t really fluctuate too much between those months (at least in Cali) so I think either way would be fine as long as they ship before March

Merry Christmas...Looking to graft some pleasant tasting Pitangatuba branches onto my tree. Please let me know if you have anything. Open to purchasing and or trading. Thanks!

I put wayyyy too much Hollytone on my red hybrid this summer and it shed all its leaves, then put on the most amazing flowering display all over the branches I’ve ever seen, and then all the flowers fell off. My leaves still haven’t grown back but the branches always stayed green and now there’s tiny new buds forming. After realizing I put too much fert I drenched it trying to leach out any excess fert that was in there. Not sure if it helped or not but the tree is starting to bounce back. Good luck!

You’re awesome 😎

Get ready to start watching some paint dry and water boil...these things grow slowwww in the sub-tropics. I would recommend Luc’s for cold hardiness and easiness to grow. The only fruit I’ve eaten out of the Garcinia’s is Purple Mangosteen and Achacha. They were both really tasty with Achacha having a floral thing going on (like in some lychees) and purple mangosteen having a nice mellow citrusy flavor without the tart...Good luck in your search, I have some extra seedlings of seashore mangosteens in 1 gallons, and maybe a couple of other Garcinia’s laying around...if interested lemme know 

Giant Mulchi (Plinia Inflata) seedling up for auction. 12” tall

Nate, I am so sorry. I just found your email in my junk folder. If you still like to place an order,
I can add it for you in the list.

Hi Bill, thanks for the reply, and no worries! I’ve jumped on with another forum members order who I live near to make life a little easier for you ;) Thanks a bunch for putting this together!

Just harvested our sweet potatoes for Christmas :) Happy Holidays!

Hey Kaz, FYI I got some peluche scions from achetadomestica in February that already have small fruits 😃 :) Not sure where his are from though.

A nice alternative that is more cold hardy is Chilean Guava. The variegated "Flambeau" variety tastes very similar (interior, not the skin), at least in my garden.

Hi, thx for the info, I have a couple Chilean guavas that should fruit next year. Is the skin edible?

The thing I disliked about my Jamaican Cherry tree was the skin, way too thick so you have to spit It out. My kids couldn’t eat the Jamaican Cherry fruit because of the skin :(

I have grafted Cheena Chempejack and it has been smaller than any Jackfruits I have. Very easy to open and productive.

How does the taste compare with the best Jackfruit you’ve ever had? When you say easy to open does that mean it has little latex? Thanks
