Tropical Fruit Discussion / First Variegated White Sapote
« on: January 18, 2022, 01:25:34 AM »
I was grafting my sapote today and almost cut off this special branch. I did not know that it had some variegated leaves/branch starting to grow out. It just grew out in the last 2 weeks on my multi-grafted (28) white sapote tree. One leaf is almost albino and the shape is different, much more wider than normal.

Check of the leaves, if anyone else has a variegated white sapote plant, please take some photos or comment about yours.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Asian Persimmon - this season crops
« on: January 07, 2022, 03:46:11 AM »
I just finished picking most of my persimmons, even dehydrated some and it tastes very good.
I like the non-astringent varieties more than the soft astringent ones.

Citrus General Discussion / Sanbokan - Anyone else growing it ?
« on: December 23, 2021, 02:45:07 AM »
My Sanbokan grafted branches are going wild with fruits this year. Last year I had many 8 fruits this year the same branches have a lot more (20 fruits). I like the taste of this lemon/sour orange, it has a sweet taste so you can eat it like an orange, maybe not as sweet but still good.

My fruits are getting so large this year I had to tie ropes on the fruiting branches so it wouldn't break off. One branch has 10 fruits hanging from it. I wait until the fruit turns yellow (end of Jan) to eat it. It tastes better than my New Zealand lemon and has much more flesh/juice per fruit.

Interested in hearing what you think about this fruit. I noticed the UCR budwood program isn't offering this budwood this year.

Since the Satsuma/Mandarin's are ripening now, I thought it would be nice to share with everyone some photos of Satsuma fruits from my family's backyard gardens.

Please post photos of your ripe fruits and identify the variety and any comments you like to make of the taste.

I will start first with this 30yr old satsuma (older variety that is unknown-forgot) grown in my family garden which gives hundreds of fruits each year. My brother says he thinks the 2 trees has about 700 fruits this year. Just took these photos on 12/4/21. This satsuma is what I call a flat fruit since it seems to be shaped much flatter than any I have seen in grocery stores or online when searching for satsuma varieties or from the UCR variety database. The taste of the fruit today is good, mildly sweet, but it will get sweeter the longer you let it hang on the tree up until January. Skin is puffy, easy peel, no seeds.

So if you have some ripe fruits then post it here to share, thanks.

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Sweet Potato
« on: November 10, 2021, 05:22:44 PM »
Anyone growing sweet potatos ?

Can you grow sweet potatos in a pot or a bed container?  I don't have much space to let the vine grow in ground so just wondering if anyone is growing these sweet potatos in a enclosed planter?

I have the Okinawa/Molokai sweet potato (purple color inside) and it grows well but not getting any potato since I don't have space to let the roots run underground. I had one potato that grew under one of my planters (over cement) and it looked like a pancake potato with roots.

If you have any purple sweet potatoes, please post some photos of your tuber.

The world's record potato, weighs 17 lbs.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Dragon Fruit - Hand Pollination
« on: November 06, 2021, 04:34:52 PM »
I have a question on hand pollination of DF flowers. The DF thread is to long to read through every post so I will ask my question here.

I have a yellow dragon fruit that has 5 flowers on it. One flower already bloomed and I think I hand pollinated it ok. My question is before the next 4 flowers open, how do you know if the hand pollinated flower is good and will be making a fruit?

I hand pollinated the flower last week, and it appears that the stem of the flower area is starting to swell so I'm assuming there will be a fruit. I will post a few photos of the first flower.

If anyone can tell me how long after you hand pollinate that you will see the results and how long does it take before the fruit grow and ripens that would help out.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / First Flowers on Liliko Passion Fruit
« on: October 31, 2021, 06:19:39 PM »
I'm really happy to see my first Lilikoi flowers this week. Does anyone here grow Lilikoi?
I bought this sweet Lilikoi abut 5 years ago and the vine grew fast so I let it grow up my large pomelo tree and it has not had any flowers until this year.

If you do, I would like to ask if you hand pollinate to get fruits to set or if they will have fruits with no hand pollination.
Also, how long do you think my flower will stay open to hand pollinate it. I have one flower open today and I see two more flowers still closed but should open in a few more days-a week.

I have some rootstock loquats that I'm thinking of grafting different varieties now.

Just curious if there is any interest in placing an advance order of my grafted loquat on seedling plant.
The rootstock will vary is size from 1-2yr olds, so maybe 12"-36" rootstock that will be cut & grafted.

I can graft the following variety if you don't want the  *Peluche:
- Jazzy (orange flesh)
- Big Jim (orange flesh)
- Big Jim (white flesh)
- *China White (white flesh)
- Yeuhda
- Champane
- Massida
- *Mogi
- Novak
- Vista White
- *KT1(Kosmic) , *KT3(Sheri_Lynn), *KT9(Lindsey), *KT14(Graham Harding)

The cost of the grafted tree will range from $50 (all except *)to $75 each depending on the size of the rootstock used (1yr old, 2 yr old) plus shipping which is estimated at $25-$35 USPS priority mail (depends on location). Only 1 variety will be grafted on each seedling.

The cost for the other (*) variety listed:
*Peluche, $100 plus ship
*China White, $75 plus ship
*Mogi, $75 plus ship
*KT1,3,9,14--- $75 plus ship

I purchased many of these scions from reliable forum members, I did not get any fruits some varieties listed but all of my grafts (1-2yrs) have flowers/small fruits on the branches now. If any variety I sell you is not the correct one, I will refund the cost ( less shipping).

I have maybe 5-10 rootstocks that I plan to graft so the first 5 people on the Advance Wait list will have priority for the purchase in Spring 2022. If I graft now, the plant should be ready to ship by spring 2022.

You will be put on my Wait List, no payment until I'm ready to ship.
Before you make payment, I will send you a photo of the grafted plant and then you can finalize it.

This offer is for anyone that has been a forum member for at least 1 year, no newbies.
Seller has option to refuse to sell to anyone.

Only 1 grafted plant order per customer.

Lower 48 states where loquat can be shipped.

I will leave this post up for 1 week to see if there are any interest, then delete it. I will send PM to those on the advance wait list.



Tropical Fruit Discussion / Starfruit- Anyone Growing It ?
« on: October 27, 2021, 02:31:27 AM »
Anyone here growing starfuit (Carambola) ? I'm thinking of planting one tree but was not sure if there is a good reason to grow it.

I bought a few fruits from the market and it was not sweet, so not sure how you are suppose to eat it.  I have a few questions for those who like it and grow this fruit tree:

-Is there any health benefit in eating it?
-How do you eat the fruit ?

I noticed these fruits were pretty expensive at the market, don't know why. I saw this tree with all these fruits so I am considering getting a plant.

Citrus General Discussion / Lemon tree with wavy leaves
« on: October 19, 2021, 03:13:36 AM »
Is anyone growing the new Winters Seedless Eureka Lemon?

"WINTERS SEEDLESS EUREKA LEMON, VI-909" --- UCR variety data budwood.

I grafted some budwood about 1-1/2 years ago and this one grows fast, already has some nice size fruits. I wanted to know if anyone else has this variety and if they noticed that the leaves are very wavy on this lemon. I haven't seen any citrus variety with wavy leaves like this.

I will take a few photos tomorrow and post it here. I have the Seedless Lisbon and it has normal leaves. Also the Eureka lemon (with seeds) has normal looking leaves.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Allahabad Guava ??
« on: October 06, 2021, 09:14:08 AM »
I got this guava from ebay a while ago and now it had the first fruit. Since my plant is not that large yet, only 4 ft tall, the fruit is still small.

I has very strong guava aroma, bright red color flesh, taste was good, not excellent but good. Has some seeds. Does anyone recognize this quava fruit? Is it an Allahabad?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Help ID - Cherimoya variety
« on: September 07, 2021, 11:22:29 PM »
I have an older cherimoya tree (15+yrs) that gives a few fruits a year, I plan to top work this tree but I wanted to check with anyone here about the variety. I don't remember what variety it was, a friend gave the small plant to me. When it sets fruit, they get pretty large ( 1 lb) and tastes sweet. The tree is large (8" trunk diameter) and get over 18 ft if I don't trim the branches each year to 10 ft.

Here's some photos of my tree and the large leaves it has. If anyone can tell the variety from the leaves then please let me know. I don't have any fruit photos of this tree.
