Fruit treesdon webercitrus springs fl - I thought pomelo leaves has winged petiole. Anyway, citrumelo is a proper rootstock, so the rootstock theory can stand. I'm generalising here, most people wouldn't grow pomelos unless there is a real reason to, so adds weight that it's a rootsto..543 days 14hrs
Re fruit with no seed - I recall reading Parvin mango has this seedless condition for around 25% of all fruit. This was attributed to the cultivar. It's a known condition within the mangos and maybe something triggered in the R2E2 to do the same. ..543 days 14hrs
Looking for a calamansi seed or tree - To add to the confusion/debate. Citrus x Microcarpa, sold as Calamondin in Australia, is reported to be Kalamansi/calamansi of the Philippines. Though, confusingly one nursery calls it 'Australian Kumquat'. Kumquat/Cumquat is another citrus..567 days 16hrs
Lenon seeds - Between 5 to 15 years, your lemon seeded grown tree should fruit. Also, you will need a very big pot - as it need to grow to full size to reach maturity. Google 'Node count' If you have the space and patience, yes. Or hedge your bets and do ..568 days 15hrs

Mangoes in melbourne mission impossible - looks like the beginning of flower spikes I'd keep them and see if you can get a fruit to set. It's nice to see a tiny mango and knowing what the future holds. KPs are known to have mango flower from seed as early as 3 years. So it's possible. ..617 days 19hrs
Problem with mango tree - My guess is, it can be ANTHRACNOSE or Bacterial Black Spot. It's quite common in our coastal humidity. One solution is to spray constantly or grow varieties that is more resistant. Unfortunately, Bowen/KP is quite prone to it. https://www.d..638 days 18hrs

Yellow lemon tree leaves - clay in general is not the best for citrus, as there is a greater disposition for root rot. what you really need is good drainage. and most of the clay breakers will increase the pH to alkaline side I suspect being in innisfail, a high rainfa..723 days 16hrs
Unusual lemons - the striped one is probably a variegated variety. Jerry Coleby-Williams of ABC Gardening Australia has shown off his variegated Villa Franca in one of the segments. http://www.abc.net.au/gardening/stories/s4201458.htm There is a variegated Eur..728 days 18hrs
Kaffir lime2 - I have 2 kaffir lime trees in pots, both producing a handful of fruits a year. It is hard to give away the fruits as hardly anyone knows what to do with them. Having said that, I did find someone who uses it in Indonesian sambal (sauce/dip). Mine..732 days 16hrs
Patio lime - Very sorry to hear the recent frost has damaged the plants. But it did sound like the bricks and concrete did create a micro climate and probably saved a small part of the plant and like you said, hopefully spring comes and the plants will turn around. ..733 days 20hrs
Turmeric - I have seen a video on youtube that there is a white form of turmeric. I also grew turmeric for the first time. Mine are orange in the lower parts of the turmeric. I.e. you can see the orange through the skin. and when you break it, you see mostly..733 days 20hrs
Citrus pest - I believe they are a form of scale. I have them on one of my lemon trees, but they are mostly in the branches surface. A spray or two of white oil should keep them in control. ..733 days 20hrs
