Proposed Hardy developed Mangos went up in smoke ?

by DavidLJ48 » 2 months ago in Rare Fruits, Edibles and Permaculture with a focus on tropicals

I was talking to a friend and he told me that the guy who was so proud of developing a selection of cold hardier mangos, went belly up, they did not prove out in colder areas.

Can anyone tell me more .

Fruits in Florida

by tsaephan » 3 months ago in Rare Fruits, Edibles and Permaculture with a focus on tropicals

It's been a while since I've posted, but I am looking for any feedback on where to find tropical, rare, exotic fruits in southern Florida.

I will be visiting/vacationing in the Miami to Homestead area. I've seen a few farms from yelp that sells fruits such as mango, guava, etc. I'm from Sacramento, CA so I know I'm in for a treat.

Mainly looking for fresh coconuts, durian, jackfruit, mangosteen, etc.

Any input/ideas on specific areas, farms, shops, certain fruits I should/must try while there would be grwatly appreciated

Is this site functioning ok, it does not seem so.

by DavidLJ48 » 3 months ago in Rare Fruits, Edibles and Permaculture with a focus on tropicals

Is they site functioning ok, it does not seem so at least from what I can read on my computer. I have made posts and they do not show up, and it appears that most of the posts by otters seem sporadic and it appears that there is no activity on the sight; like it has died. And each time I come, most times I have to login in again, with my site name and password.

In Scion Exchange, parajubaea torallyi, Hardy grafted Cados

by DavidLJ48 » 3 months ago in Rare Fruits, Edibles and Permaculture with a focus on tropicals

In Scion Exchange, I have listed parajubaea torallyi palms and Hardy grafted Mexican Avocado trees, 5 gallon or more for the palms, 5 gallon for the avocados.

Not sure this is ok to post here, but no ones seems to be noting they are listed there; or I am in error and no one wants any of them.

Hardy Mexican Avocado trees, var. not found in a nursery

by DavidLJ48 » 3 months ago in Exchange Scions

I have a small selection and limited number of grafted Mexican Avocado stains, not found in a nursery. Wood taken from seedlings and varieties no longer produced by a commercial nursery since around the 60s or so.

5 gallon plants; from green to black skinned one pounders to smaller fruits; from medium to small, some are undeveloped Criollo types from Mexico.

Also a small supply of the Oroville Duke, that has been touted about by Bill Bird.

I have no plans to ship, one would have to come over to see me or make other arrangements; these are 3 feet tall or greater. I have a few that are smaller, but cannot see shipping as they have such fragile wood.

Most trees $25, for the hard to graft Oroville Dukes $40. If one buys more then one, normally offer a discount I can send pics by email.
