Hello Friends,

Here are some recent pictures of some new and existing Fruit trees:

Sweetheart Lychee - Is currently Flushing and Producing Flowers? Is this fairly uncommon for Lychees to be Flowering this time of year? What do you think Harry?

Rollinia Deliciosa Tree - Is 5' Feet tall but dropped all of its leaves when re-potted. It is currently bouncing back and growing new leaves and branches from the bottom up. The top of the tree is about 6" inches past the white tag:

Smaller Rollinia (2'-3' Feet):

Starfruit Tree - It used to be 9' Feet tall but had to be chopped to be shipped. Look how nice and fat the trunk is, at least 2" inches. It should bounce back nicely!

New Picture of my Green Sapote. It has put on about 4" to 5" inches since I last posted and about 5 to 6 leaves.

Here are some Pictures of my Grafted White's Cherimoya (about 5' feet tall) tree, in case you missed them in my other thread. You can see the flowers and even a fruit in the 2nd and 3rd pics.

I also have a 5' foot Grumichama Cherry but it got too dark and the pictures didn't come out.

I also just just got a 2nd Rambutan tree (grafted), a Pulasan, a Marang, and Pedalai tree. Unfortunately, I was unable to find my camera and was using my Nephew's Playschool Kid's camera, so I wasn't able to take pictures of everything before it got too dark as the Flash was not working very well. I will be posting them very soon.

I am also looking for a Pickering Mango tree. Anyone have any suggestions? Remember, I am in California so Pine Island is way too expensive, and Nipa Hut no longer Ships to California as of about a month ago.

Thanks,

Jacob

Jacob,

Great pictures, do you grow all your annona fruit in containers? If so, what size container and how does your fruit production turn out?

I would be interested in trading for a ice cream bean seedling, I can PM with some of the stuff I can offer.

Its unfortunate we are limited with mango selection down here in California. I looked long and hard as well for a Pickering mango, because I was interested in adding another good condo mango (I have just a Julie). I believe plantogram still ships to CA.

Plantogram had Fairchild last time I checked, which would make a great addition in place of Pickering. There is also a CRFG event coming up in August at Cal Poly Pomona. There should be lots of rare fruit plants there, and you may be able to find a Pickering Mango there.

Nullzero,

Thanks for your comments and compliments. As for my Annonas, Yes I grow all of them in Containers. Almost all of them are in at least 15 gallon or 30 gallon containers, with the exception of a couple that are still small enough for smaller containers. They all seem to be pretty happy and are growing quite nicely. Right now I have a "Kampong Mauve" Sugar Apple, White's Cherimoya, "Genova Red" Ilama, a couple of Rollinia Deliciosas, a Green Sugar Apple, a smaller Thai-Lessard Sugar apple which is still in a 5 gallon due to its size, and another unknown seedling in a 1 gallon.

This year is the first time they have flowered heavily and will hopefully get some fruit, but I haven't got any fruit yet, but I don't think it is because of the container because they look and seem very happy and healthy and are growing very well.

As for the Mangos, I agree that the selection out here in California is Horrible. The only Variety you can find at any Nursery is the Manila. I am planning on going to the Festival of Fruit and hopefully there will be some other varieties for sale there. I kind of have my Heart set on a Pickering so that is what I am looking for. Email me so that we can talk and I can get you an Ice Cream Bean seedling. These suckers grow so fast, it's really incredible.

Thanks again and talk to you soon!

Jacob

Beautiful plants! No, I haven't ever seen a Sweetheart bloom off season, or any other lychee for that matter.....at least they don't do that here in Florida. I suppose the cooler drier days in Claifornia tricked the tree into going into bloom. It will be interesting to see if fruits set. Keep us posted.

Jacob,

I sent an email through gardenweb system, did you receive it? I have named varieties of dragon fruit cuttings I can offer for a trade.
