Thanks VF, ive come to the conclusion that you cannot compete with the tropics,However being in the SUBtropics, does have some particular and perculiar advantages. Im currently killing of every fruit spotting bug i see in the garden, its called the sledge hammer effect. Ruthless but swift, didnt know what hit them.Hi Mike good to hear from you .Recovered from the newyears excesses i hope. And you VF forgive the ignorance but where is Wongawallen in relation to Brissie

It's northern Gold Coast, on eastern side of Tamborine Mt. I'm at about 440m elevation. Re your bug situation, it took me many years to get over the ewwww factor, but I now find satisfaction in squishing the little critters.

Good work David! The posh-te looks very happy! how many flowers is it pushing ans how old is the tree?

My annonas are covered in fruit but this dry is smashing them, with my rollinia set to shed about 30% of its fruit (the stems are going black and the fruit will soon follow). My PP atemoya has dropped a few small fruit as well, but the sugar apple is a powerhouse. Of course your mates, the amblypeltas, have turned up with the riptortus rabble to make things worse. A least they dont go for the purple guavas.

Hi BJ the tree is about 4yrs old now and has only 4 flowers ,like you its devilishly dry, dont usually supp water, but will have to, lost all the jab fruit to dry, shrivelled on the tree.Mangoes are ok but again if id watered prob will have had more fruit. Hows the mangosteen going in the dry.Lost all the Rambai and Burmese grapes that Mike sent down how about you ,any success.

the mangosteen has seen better days to be honest. The new leaves are stunted and yellow. Could be chlorotic as I've been using baby bath water with trace sodium compounds. I have given it a flush with tank water (just before the tank ran dry!) and fed it, so have crossed my fingers and am hoping for the best. its hanging in there though! The rambai and burmese grapes were mostly transplants and died of transplant shock within weeks. A few seeds were eaten by a rat, which now inhabits another realm. the small leaf mangosteen, salaks and most others that came down are doing very well though.

Just a small update ,been in the garden most of the day weeding(not the fav job) and laying down more cane mulch, noticed the flowers on the Poshte have all dropped off. Not surprising since this is the first flowering, and the tree is young.Mabolos are coming on and ripening on the tree had 4 already ,last year didnt ripen till the following spring, can only account for the fact that some are ready because of the late abundance of rain, its amazing the diff this has made to all the trees this year. Most trees now gone into dormancy however some Black brazil cherrys are still coming on, also red Pawpaw,and soursop still setting fruit. Had a few Jabs couple of weeks ago, from the tree, also some late pineapples,lovely and sweet.The Carambola went mad this year and fruited profusely(finished now).Couldnt eat them all Bats got most i think.Thats the round up for now ,Hows everybody else going in there backyard.

Hi David, good to hear from you. I spent the day doing much the same as you, 'til I ran out of mulch. How do your Mabolo' s taste? Are they truly cheesy smelling as per literature? Sound interesting. You've got a nice selection of fruit happening. ATM I'm picking Persimmon, Guava, last of my Figs, Panama Berry and lots of Limes (Finger & Tahitian ), other citrus following soon. Also have growing my first Pineapple at this place, and my first bunch of Banana's (Blue Java), some White Sapotes and a few Carob beans . I had some nice Sapodilla's growing, but wasn't thinking, and when I fertilised neighbouring citrus did them too - plants aborted the lot! (Nice growth now though, gotta laugh). My most exciting possible fruit, is a Mamey Sapote. One flower still intact after about 6 weeks, and is slowly plumping up. Probably won't make the distance, but has developed more than I expected.

That sounds rather delicious smelling (way better than some funky sounding reviews), sounds like you have a good variety on hand. Is yours a grafted variety?

Would love to see a picture of the fruit.(edit: A cut open one please - I found your other pic's).

Vf yes its grafted and thecultivar is called Manilla Red.It needs propagating problem is seedlings are slow growing (have a number in the pipeline but not big enough yet) to graft onto.

Thanks David. Sounds like a bit of a challenge, but a worthwhile one: I haven't seen any grafted ones in my nursery searches, Daleys stopped some time ago. Would be a shame to lose this cultivar. Let us know progress. :)

Ok the gentleman who i purchased it from and he was a great guy so much knowledge,sadly passed away now had heaps of them.I think his point of contact was a guy called Mike Fabian, who i think used to work for Limberlost up in Cairns. He was there cheif Propagator, since retired now some years ago.Spoke to mike on several occasions over the years but lost touch when he retired. Might have something now to do with Alan Carle. Mike up in Cairns might know of his whereabouts. Mike is a genious when it comes to propagating plants,grafting, marcotting you name it.Since buying this Mabolo now18 yrs ago i think i have never seen another like it.You hear from time to time of seedlings in private collections down here but never heard of grafted cultivars. Kasper shneider from Redland had several seedlings in his garden but dont ever recall him saying that they had fruited.Hope this helps Vf a bit long winded i know but sometimes you have to take the time to relate a good story

Hi BJ merry Christmas, sad to say because of the extended dry this year the tree is really suffering, some dead branches, and as a result flowering is only just starting.Think it will be some weeks before I know for sure if any will set.On the bright side the soursop is fruiting well, yesterday pulled of another 2 big fruit,Kwan is loaded ,also same problem with the king thai that you had I think, a heavily laden branch snapped right off taking with it 5 big fruits,Jab is loaded only small,Dwarf duccase another lot of fruit formed 2 weeks ago.All for now will let you know, by the wat where did you see the Poshte seedlings ,also if you see some soncoya seedlings please let me know , also the Lakoocha is shooting out huge leaves not planted yet but will go in soon ,thanks again.Cheers Dave.

Small update on the flowering this year ,sad to report with the extended drought, and not much rain when needed the tree flowered profusely but sadly no fruit set yet.Growth has been good but have had a small problem with limb die back here and there, very random event, oh well Mabolos are ripening early this year, so its some consolation

Hi Guys yes my tree is about 15 years old and has been cropping on and off for about 8 years i guess? It grew up in shade so was slower to fruit for that reason, better in full sun in the sub tropics fantastic flavour can be a little seedy though at times but the fine flavour makes up for that. Seems to tolerate the cold once established goes through winter no worries. Dont need to hand pollinate but noticed it crops a lot better with a wet summer. Ill try and post a few pics when i get time

Hi I have 27 seed I just got out of a Poshte fruit that's been hanging on there since last season which would be quite viable. You would just need a small heating tray or similar this time of year for germination. $1 each plus postage. I am going away Friday morning 7th July up until 26 July so if you want the seed you can pay via paypal into my account today I can send them to you just normal post which shouldn't be more than $5 or you can wait till I come back and I can send them then.
