Lucs garcinia availability

    20 responses

Joe.Ventra starts with ...
Hi everyone, I'm new to Daleys fruit tree forum. I'm looking to start up a collection of fruit trees and have already ordered a few off Daleys and they have been a great help to me!

Was wondering if anyone has any Luc's garcinia available to buy and whether it is true that they are self pollinating? I've seen so much varying information about pollination requirements.

Thanks in advance.
Joe

I have the same question. Do you need 1 or 2 plants , will other garcinias help pollination?

They are monos and come in a few forms with jumbo, fuyu and purple highly desired.Very few of the Rheedia type Garcinias need to be outcrossed.

It’s been fruited as single plants in the states, and most new world garcinias are self pollinating. But to my knowledge the plants fruiting outside of Mexico have not produced full sized fruit yet.

And will different Garcinia improve fruit set or does the fact they are different negate this possibility? Eg Lucs next to madrono etc.
Thanx

Exactly, i have never seen a full sized fruit grown out of Mexico (on the interwebs)...Also no description of the fruitquality.

My Luc's did not do anything for last 6 months, it still looks the same (very small) while my achacha's grow very well.

Mine has grown a few centimeters during that period, it's about 69 cm tall in a 35L pot after 2 years from purchase. I read that someone had success grafting Luc's Garcinia onto imbe.

I have had two of these growing for a couple of years now and I must say I have never seen anything grow as slowly as this before! I think they grew maybe 1cm in this time, one of them has died now and I think the other will be dead soon too.

Life is too short to bother with this fruit tree, in Sydney anyway.

I finally got my hands on one. I was searching through ebay and a guy was selling one small one for $30. it's about 30 cm high and looks healthy.
the tag on it is from Daleys, so must've been an earlier purchase from here.

Fingers crossed one is enough to fruit then , unless I get my hands on another down the track

I saw a video from the California Rare Fruit Society and a guy there has a Lucs doing multiple flushes a year by moving into a cold area for a couple weeks and then into a warm area will cause flushing - no harm trying as Lucs will take 5c easy but not sure for how long to risk - mines tring to do a second branch flush atm.Early January growth fully hardened now.

That's unfortunate, mine has grown a decent amount since Feb 2017 when I received it. Grafting onto imbe seems to be working from what I've heard.

I have grafted 2 Luc’s scions (from a tree that has had its first fruit so I’m informed from a reliable source) onto my inground Achachas and both have taken. One is pushing its second lot of leaves.
Interestingly I also grafted onto seedling Luc’s and they took about 6 weeks later to push, so Achacha looks very promising as rootstock

Hi Markmelb - what are you feeding your tree please? Do you water with tap water and is it decent tap water?
I was amazed that our seedling survived our winter in the ground outside here - it pushed to lots of new leaves come summer - but it's struggling with chlorosis (our bore water a bit limey) so it hasn't grown as much and healthy as I would have liked as we head in to it's next winter....
Its only about 15cm tall....poor thing..I am so tempted to rescue it and pot it up again....but I really don't want to start having a potted orchard.
(no laughing at my little plant guys! hehe....it has toughed out some temps lower than 5C so deserves a little respect surely? :P )

Hi Amanda - our tap water is ok but mainly tank rainwater - slow release ferts like Debcos 9month or powerfeed. They will tolerate cold but not the hight 30s too well - may grow better in a root prune bag?

Handy to know thanks Markmelb - thanks! It's amazing how differently some of these plants respond to rainwater - rather than tap and/or bore isn't it.
Very interesting about the heat though - I didn't know that.
I actually ended up putting a light shade cloth teepee over ours towards the end of summer - on the afternoon sun side - (just had a feeling) maybe I should have done it sooner.
