The berries are sweet and edible, but not much to eat. We grow this to attract and feed birds!

There are leaves above the first marcot. Wont that help? Or can I marcot above the rooted portion? I am thinking that if I have two sets of roots one above the other, the plant will be better anchored. The mother plant which is a marcotted one tilts every time there is rain with heavy winds.

This is one lemon tree I have marcotted. Now I am thinking, is it possible to form another set of roots a foot down? Does anyone have any experience doing this. This tree gives me lemon 365 days in a year.

How difficult is it to marcot rambutan? I have a very good quality fruit rambutan tree and I would like to have a few more of the same. My efforts at grafting have all been failures and now I am thinking of marcoting. Any help would be greatly appreciated .

Wrap the split tightly with some grafting tape, as you would doing a cleft graft. The split will heal in a couple of months. After a month check  if the taping is too tight. If too tight, remove the tape and retape so that the pressure is released.

C X 9/5 plus 32 = F.

#1 looks like a Garcinia, maybe Bacupari.

Depends on which Coffee; Robusta ripens all at the same time while Arabica ripens one berry at a time. Harvest the ripe, red berries and put then in the Sun to dry. Once they make a rustling sound when when handled, they have to be hulled to get the beans out. A food processor used at low speed can do it. Separate the husk from the beans.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Yellow jaboticaba/Cabeludinha flowers
« on: September 01, 2020, 07:45:21 AM »
I have two yellow jaboticaba plants in pots which are about 3 years old and over 6 feet tall. They put out flower buds about 6 weeks ago. Even though the buds have swelled, they have not opened. Is this normal or is there something that can be done?

I dont think this is neem. Neem does not have reddish leaf stalk. Crush one leaf between the fingers and taste, it should be bitter. It is safe.

Achacha is not Garcinia humilis.
