Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Anyone who can ship FL mangoes?

I think mango season is just kinda firing up in FL? - Any chance someone in FL could ship some selected varieties to Oregon? It would be much appreciated.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Apple disease ID
« on: May 14, 2021, 11:52:02 AM »



Anyone have ideas on this malady? This tree is 30-40 years old and all the old trunk was in very poor health. Iíve been taking off old funky looking wood and it leaves an orange coating on your gloves or hands / tools. This is healthy new growth but I want to get ahead of this stuff before it spreads.

The tree was way too cluttered and airflow was poor and itís much more open now.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / 9b Spring
« on: April 03, 2021, 06:54:03 PM »
Things are cautiously opening up here in zone 9b. This year theyíre about a month behind what happened last year, but I prefer that. Last year I had tons of blooms and young growth that got burnt by a late frost.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Jaboticaba Cultivars and their Leaves
« on: March 11, 2021, 01:04:05 PM »


I received all these beautiful scions while on a trip to Colorado and prepared them all myself and in doing so thought it was cool to see all the leaves of the cultivars together in one place. Perhaps others may like to see it to

I'm about to head out to the greenhouse and start grafting all of these onto one tree.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cleft Grafting Pitanga / Surinam Cherry
« on: February 27, 2021, 03:18:41 PM »
I've been having good luck with cleft grafts on pitangas so I made a short video showing my process. I'm grafting Zill's dark from Achetadomestica onto my Lolita seedling which hasn't produced yet.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Up Potting Sabara Jaboticaba
« on: February 27, 2021, 03:17:30 PM »
Here's a fairly long video detailing my soil mix using off the shelf products here in California for my jabo soil mix. This jabo was really chloritic since the roots were tickling into my ultra alkaline soil and it badly needed an up pot.

Hope someone finds it helpful

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Acidic white sapote scions
« on: February 25, 2021, 11:59:30 AM »
Iím going to be topping my flowering 15í tall white sapote in a week or so. The fruit is mildly acidic which is really nice compared to the usual cloyingly sweet white sapote I usually have found.

Branch diameter will be between 1/4Ē - 3/8Ē

$5 per scion minimum 4 - available to US or PR only

Payment via PayPal

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / King White Mulberry Scions
« on: February 24, 2021, 12:44:49 PM »
I'm going to be doing some severe pruning on my king white mulberry and figured I'd offer up some scions. It produces fruit nearly as long as Pakistani and is pure syrupy sweet with a touch of watermelon flavor. The buds are just about to pop open so it's a great time to graft them.

Looks like this one:



Most of the pruning will be pencil thickness or a bit thinner, and between 4" - 10" long.

$4 per branch, minimum 5 branches. Will ship in USPS priority box.

PayPal for payments and US / PR only.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cleft Grafting Red Jabo onto Sabara
« on: February 16, 2021, 08:24:22 PM »
https://youtu.be/BEU1Od8JV68

Another grafting video I was working on the last few days: putting some red hybrid onto my sabara cocktail tree. Lately I've been getting good takes on all the scions from members here so hopefully this gives you some confidence to give it a shot.

The cocktail tree now has aÁu paulista from Palologrower, Grimal from Jonah, and red hybrid from my tree which I just pruned.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Cleft Grafting a Cocktail Apple Tree
« on: February 16, 2021, 07:02:26 PM »
My neighbor's apple tree suffered for the last 30 years and then punched out a monstrous root sucker over the last few years, dwarfing the original grafted tree. I made this video of me grafting this apple tree with some details about how I go about it.

https://youtu.be/yERWjyxQvts

Can't wait to try this bad-boy out in the future with the 6 new types on it. Akero, Regent, Bill's Red Flesh, Cinnamon Spice, Irish Peach, Goodland and a fresh graft from the old graft.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cleft Grafting Pineapple Guava
« on: February 16, 2021, 04:35:47 PM »
https://youtu.be/th2l50fwWIc

I made a little video while I was grafting my pineapple guava. Not sure if that was the right type of graft to go with, but it's the one I have the most experience with. Anyone know what works best for feijoa?

The rootstock is a huge plant but the fruit quality and productivity is pretty bad, so I hope these all take.

Hammered on some: Nazemetz x 1, Coolidge x 3, Improved Coolidge x 2, Precocious X 4, and Nikita x 4 (The number being how many scions of each I put on.)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / I built a Cheap PVC Greenhouse
« on: October 12, 2020, 09:31:41 PM »




Iíd been hmmming and hawing about what to do about a greenhouse this year. Iím a bit short of space (width) and so this is what I came up with. Itís 24í long and 10í wide with a peak about 10í and will have two 940cfm gable fans to keep the highest part of the tunnel cooler. The sides roll up 2í and I havenít decided quite what do for walls but will likely just use more vinyl plastic.

Total cost is probably about $600 so far:

$200 for the vinyl cover
$300 in building materials
$100 in shuttered gable fans

Really looking forward to a warm and humid space in the winter.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Damaged cherimoya
« on: August 19, 2020, 02:42:10 PM »





Would you do anything with this damage? It seems so bad that but itís growing slowly above it still. Iím tempted to lop it off at the bottom of the damage and hope it sends up a new leader.

Iíve been planting a lot of seeds over the last couple years and itís getting a little too full at my house. Figured I would offer up some seedlings if anyone is interested in the Santa Barbara or Central California coast area. I donít want to ship these, so please find a way to pick up locally. Iím at the top of the 154 in SB

All these plants are hardened to 100f+ and all went down to 32f, so itíll be a tropical vacation if you take them somewhere else in CA thatís 9b or above. It is a desert / low humidity environment here so itís not really nice for jabos, but again, theyíll love a more mild area. I up potted all of them (other than the inga, which are rooting out of the pot) over the last few weeks into my own soil mix and theyíre all taking off.

5 gallon inga - $60 - I have two Iíd sell
Black Star or Vermillion pitanga - $30 - many. I canít tell which is which but all are from grafted trees which produce delicious black fruits
Orange Eugenia - these are from Marcos in Argentina - $30
CORG - $30 - from Marcos in Argentina
Red jaboticaba seedlings - $30 - Florida seeds
Lemon drop mangosteen or lemon drops - $20 - big roots and pushing new growth fast now

Have many seeds from desirable places in pots and starting off too, you can take a look if you visit? Nelita calcyina, Zills pitanga, red jabos, white jabos, etc etc.
Also have lots of good dragonfruit I can take cuttings of for you.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / 2020 Grafts
« on: June 23, 2020, 01:55:21 PM »
I have been trying my hand at grafting this year and seeing some success. Can't be 100% sure of all of them but I wanted to share some photos and maybe others could share their grafts from this year too:

Couple black star pitanga seedlings with Zill's scions grafted on top


Zill's grafted on vermillion, nice thick scion


Zill's grafted on lolita, again a thicc boi


Heavily grafted white sapote, this thing hasn't flowered but is a giant: grafted on Santa Cruz, Pike, Lammertz, Lemon Gold, Suebelle, Supersweet, Nettie, and Walton


Suebelle and Lemon Gold grafted white sapote, with another Zill's on black star seedling


What appears to be a successful graft of Zill's on a senior and large lolita pitanga


I had this dead branch on the bottom of my grafted vermillion more senior pitanga, and I found green at the base, so I tried another Zill's on this


This is one I hope a more senior grafter can advise on: I see the scion is dead up top on this loquat (Vista White onto seedling) - are these just rootstock pushing through? Or will this be Vista white?


Successful Vista White on my neighbour's horrendous loquat seedling (it is awful!)


An even nicer success on the same, Vista White


White Jabo on Sabara, appears to be a take


Yellow grumichama on red grumichama, I tried 3 other cleft grafts with no luck, but this one is a maybe, it was green when I tipped it to check

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Disease on Pitanga, Jabo, Blueberries?
« on: January 10, 2020, 01:40:38 PM »
Iíve been seeing some unusual leaf spotting around my garden on several different plants. It has been around for awhile on some, and seems to be getting worse with winter. We also did have a pretty vicious hail storm and it came up on almost everything after - which makes me wonder if itís just damage from getting beat with ice pellets.

Is this something to be worried about? Can anyone identify it? Itís not present on all the plants. Maybe just winter blues?
