Are you on tropicalfruitforum.com? Unfortunately I have more tropical trees so I can't contribute to your wants but many people on that website will.

I'm not. I live in the San Fernando Valley, Sunset Zone 18, where the weather is too extreme for tropical fruits. But I'll have to take a look, thanks.

I grow quite a bit... A lot of my fruit is tropical. Mangoes, atemoya, miracle fruit, longan, lychee, guava, ice cream bean, fig, cherry of the rio grande, surinam cherry, plus a lot more and all the normal stuff... be careful who you get scions from... diseases spread easily.

It's an old outdated forum but there are highly experienced growers on there. You will be able to exchange scions no problem.

My Fuji is definitely not self-pollinating. I used to bring flowers from other apples that bloomed at the same time and pollinate by hand. Then I finally got smart and grafted some twigs from these flowering trees on an Anna apple. Now when the Fuji blooms, I have a supply of blooms to use. I still hand pollinate but am happy with a small (30 or so) harvest.

This experiment failed to meet my expectations. Not sweet enough.IIt was nearly 2 years old already. I should have waited a few more months .

Ugh! I know that feeling. My first one I waited three years and picked early. Next one waited an extra 30 days. This was from a sugarloaf pineapple. Best one I ever tasted. Took two years but was a little over 5 lbs
