Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: My new Sweet Tart is full of fruit.
« on: March 22, 2018, 05:13:32 PM »
I might be getting a couple sticks of Sweet Tart to graft, then i might get to taste THIS MANGO grown in Arkansas. can't wait. My Atemoya and Jaboticaba are doing great, so! 

Ca Hocky, the one thing i would do, learn as much how shape the different species. My saying is this, i can make small tree's big and big tree's small, there is such thing as " the art of pruning". My persimmon tree's are all, no ladder tree's.

I only got one fruit, pick it the third week in January and it was so so, expected better. It is only the first time for this tree. It flowered heavy last year and the year before but i did not pollinate, i want a bigger tree first.

I got mine from Harris 4 years ago, it is growing in a 15 gl container. It has produce 2 yields so far. It is still 4 feet tall. It fruit every other year. With thinning you might get fruit every year. Last year it produces very light, like only 6. It might be stunted by having a heavy yield two summers ago. My other one is in bloom now and it is looking good.

Millet, my small operation has't been hit by any deceases, still doing great, grafts are doing great also


Millet what was the rootstock you use for your Valentine pomelo?

I have several remaining Flying Dragon rootstocks left, like to graft several varieties like Pomelo or mandarins onto them, will that work?

Yes Phil, all 3 took, but when i prune the tree i accidentally cut-off 2 branches with the sions on them, could not reuse them. I only got one left and that one only grew about 2 feet. I will probably regraft it this spring. How about yours, any luck? My Minh is doing excellent, still have one fruit on now.

Millet, very good report, the budwood you send me is doing terrific can wait to sample some in the not too distant future. Both varieties you send me are getting the best care. 

 AM Leonard sells Rootmaker pots in those sizes, including 3 gls. I like them and so does the tree's.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Is 1 jaboticaba enough?
« on: February 11, 2018, 08:39:33 AM »
I have a red one and one is not enough, 3 is the absolute minimum. I can,t get enough eating them.

What if your tree,s has a lot of fruits going into the winter months, do you maintain a certain temp in your greenhouse?

I sure hope this will work. What would life be without citrus. Millet no orange juice for you in the morning?

Slicko, citrus is more sensitive than most crops to biuret, an impurity present in urea fertilizer created by excessive heating of chemical reactants during urea manufacture.  Toxicity can result from soil or foliar spray applications of urea applications with elevated biuret concentration. If urea is used as a nitrogen source for citrus, it should contain not more than 0.25 - 0.50% biuret by weight.  The leaf symptoms of biuret toxicity appear as an irregular butter yellow chlorosis that starts at the leaf tip.  Young leaves are more vulnerable than old ones, and affected leaves do not regreen.  On very young, expanding leaves, urea with a biuret concentration in excess of 1.0% may cause distortion as well as typical yellowing.  Succeeding growth flushes appear normal, provided applications of High biuret urea is not repeated.
Tween 20 food grade, what brand do you use Millet and where do you order this. Amazon has a product called: polisorbanate 20 made by a florida company.

Millet, have you tasted a Santa Teresa yet this year? Just wondering to compare with others you grow. Mine S/T is growing well. Can,t wait what this  year going to do with my citrus tree,s.

Luis, you come to the right place, Millet knows a lot, if he does not he will find the answer.

Vanman, good to know that you have one of them, i have been looking for some time and here you are my neighbor that has one. I wonder if you want a trade?

I was told it is a patented tree and they don't sell budwood. You might be able to buy a tree from a vendor, licence to sell out of state.Check 2 and none have them.
