Hi Ethan

i really wanted a chempedak
but i see that the Marang supposedly (one site) says flavor is
"superior to both jackfruit and chempedak"

So do you know when you will have the Marang in ?

I would be happy with a good flavored chemp, durian or jackfruit.
or do you have another idea for me ?
Anyone else have suggestions , feel free to let me know

thanks
Brad

Hello Brad,
thank you for you interest in the Marangs. I went out to the greenhouse lastnight to take a look at them. Probably just another few weeks, I dont fertilize the tropicals overwinter time so they were yellow and pretty rough looking. They are starting to push out some lovely new green growth now so once that hardens off they'll become available. I'd be happy to put your name on one of two if you'd like.

I may eventually have chempedak or chemp x jack grafted onto jack rootstock but that is still in the planning stages. Of course durian is the king of full flavored fruits but also probably one of the most difficult to grow and fruit. At some point I may end up with grafted "durian" chempedak, supposedly a very aromatic chempedak?

Do you have a greenhouse, atrium or other way to protect these plants during winter in 9b? Esp. stuff like durian is very cold sensitive.

Cheers,
-Ethan

Hi Ethan
I have a greenhouse planned to build during this summer
All my papaya's in ground, had made it though (somewhat tattered) , so i was hoping to get something i can put in-ground in a year or 2.
anything smaller than 5 gallons i can protect on bad days anyway.

My other 2 options were soursop or black sapote.

I did want a miracle fruit tree as well,
(depending on shipping prices)
thought i saw that the other day, did you sell them all ?

thanks
Brad

thank you for quick reply. I am willing to wait, as long as it takes because it seems you are the only one that i can find who has cherimoya... I like to have Honeyheart cherimoya, El Bumpo, and fino de jete cherimoya if possible. I have seeding cherimoya from ebay, but i don't want to wait 4+ years to get fruit... Put my name on the wait list for those three Cheimoyas! Thank you.

Sorry Chicomoralessxm,
right now I'm unable to ship to Miami. You might try Brook's Tropical Nursery, Bender's grove, Tropical acres, Trees-N-More or even Excalibur.

Cheers,
