I have 4 grafted Ross on canistle tree's you can have...pickup in Bangkok.

Or make your own, grow canistleseed 15 cm tall, get it out of the soil, graft a scion Ross on it, put back in soil and grow it in full sun (if you use parafilm or buddytape).

If you use a bag to cover it keep it in shade untill it grows.

But my Ross only blooms, doesn't set fruit at all...hopefully it does later.

Best of luck with Orams, I couldn’t get ‘Boo’ out of them, let alone a Ross seedling. I did happen to find one on ebay about 6 months ago from a seller in Cairns. Small plant but healthy, I have since grafted it onto a Canistel seedling. Going well

My Ross is blooming for 3 years or so now but they won't open...they do get bigger every year though and more blooms..they are at the end of thin branches though, not on thick ones.

I tried everything but they just won't open...it's a 3-4 meter tree in a 200 liter pot.

Can it be too hot here for the Ross or do i just have to wait longer?

Picked up some Ross Sapote fruits from the market to see how they taste. But need to know how to tell when theyre ripe as they seem quite hard. Please let me know so I don't cut them open before they are ripe and might waste them. Thanks for any suggestions.

It really depends on preference but I wait until they are soft enough that the flattens out like a ripe black sapote. If it cracks or develops brown spots you might have to eat it earlier, but left to soften fully it will have a texture like green sapote instead of boiled egg yolk.
