Hi Grace,

I am on researching to add wax apple to my garden.  From what read so far, Thai Long Green is one of the sweetest out there.  Malaysia red is another one.  Black diamond and black pearl are almost the same with good favor and sweet.  Black king Kong is another one similar to black pearl but with enhance flavor.

Thanks,
Al

How long for your grafted to bear fruits?

Thanks,

Parfianka and desertyni are the ones with softest seeds.

I grafted desertyni this summer and it is growing great (thanks Brad).  Hope I can try it next year.  Parfianka is another one I am looking forward to it.

Hi Janet,

I can't found any info for Vkusnyi.

Sin Pepe is another one I a looking for.

"Sin Pepe, which means “seedless,” (also known as Pink Ice and Pink Satin) is also soft seeded with a flavor like fruit punch from its light pink arils.

Hi all,

I have 2 pomegranate trees that are hard seeded.  I want to graft them with some soft seeds varieties.  I read an article online, Sienevyi, Parfianka, and Sin Pepe are soft seeds.  Please PM if you are willing to sell couple scions to me if you have them.
Or
What are some best varieties or recommend for me? 

Thanks,
Al

Received my budwood today.  This is a 3rd time I am trying to graft Xie Shan.  Hope I get some good result this time.

I went to multiple stores but did not find this pomelo. They only had the big green (round) pomelo which is light pink inside. It did not taste good, no sweetness, didn't finish the second one.

How is the taste of the Shatian, both the white flesh and red flesh?

It has a lighter pomelo taste than the other I tried before and not too sweet.  My guess is it is not fully ripen, the skin still semi green.  I didn't taste any sourness. The interesting part is the pulp, it is crunchy, like jello, and like squishy candy.  No Messy.  Even I squeezed the pulp, there is no juice/very little falling off.  I really enjoy eating it. 

I have some seeds available, PM me if you are interested.  Only limited available.  First come first serve and it is free.

I opened the last one I brought.  It is pink color not white.  Everything is the same as the other one except pulp is pink.  I will try to germinate the seeds for this pink variety.

Thanks everyone replied.  I know what I should order.

Another question, this is the Xie Shan grafted I did last year November.  It doesn't should any grow for almost a year.  Do you think it is surviving?

Hi,

I am planning to make another order from CCPP.  I will order XIE SHAN SATSUMA, but want to order other varieties beside it.

What are some of the recommendation?  I am looking for easy to peel, seedless and good balance of flavor.

Thanks in advance.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / WTB round-shaped pepino melon cutting
« on: September 21, 2021, 12:17:51 PM »
Hi,

I am looking for the round-shaped of the pepino melon cuttings.  I have the oval-shaped type already. 

Thanks,

Pomelo is one of the must have fruits during moon cake festival.  People in Asian give pomelo and moon cake as a gift during the festival time.

I read an article regarding there are surplus of pomelos in the Asian area due to COVID-19 this year, not a lot of people visiting each other.  I think that is the reason Shatian Pomelos are selling locally here for the first time.

Easy to separate between the pulp and internal layer.  The pulp is firm, chewy, and not burst like the other pomelo.  After eat the entire pomelo, none of the pulp got burst.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Pomelo split issue
« on: September 17, 2021, 04:19:01 PM »
pinkturtle, if your fruit splits even when you control your watering (not overwater) it could be just due to the tree fruiting for the first time. I had some pomelo fruits split like that the first time on my trees. Eventually on following years the fruits grew to full ripeness and I didn't change any of my watering. I usually only water once a week, unless I see some of my potted plants with dry soil.

Thanks Kaz, I think that could be it.  My tree is fruiting for the first time.  Hope it is doing better next week.  My tree is Shatian, that I grew it from seed.

Do you have a photo of the fruits and are they good tasting?

Sorry, I don't have a picture of the fruit.  It was given to me by a co-worker and was told it is emperor guava.  It is oval round, crunchy, white and very strong guava flavor.  I really like it and that is why I germinated the seeds.  I think I have 20 seedlings in total, but reserver 10 for friends and relatives.
