Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Taiwan Gold - A big time mango
« on: January 15, 2018, 09:09:39 AM »
Ya Yuwen is famous for its pink to red color and large size.  But unlike jinhuang Yuwen is rounder. Not as long, so seems more flesh and less seed. And taste much better for most. But to each their own.

Yes Yuwen is very nice but also Elephant red = chang daeng. Big red mango's, thin seed and no fibre, sweet. But these is very hard to grow and fruit, my friend has them and they never bloom and is grafted tree's.

Summersnow is very bad, i no understand why taiwan make that.

Yeah! The Thais in Rustys market call this one Kim Hong (which doesn't make it true, a sale is more important than any accuracy), they also claim it is nice eaten green as well. I haven't tasted them green but I got a few ripe ones a couple of years ago and they all turned out mono-embryonic. I agree it is a nice eating mango as it has very even ripening which large sized mangoes can struggle with.

I don't like this mango Kim Hong, i like jakrapat and also red elephant is very nice one. Summersnow is also not nice.

But we have more new from taiwan, i will buy soon. I think jakrapat is yu-wen, very big and red....2 kilo.

i suppose mr adi should care the customer needs and his satisfacrion in the same interest of the seed prices.  By proper packing and selected seeds to the customers

He packs very good, he send me very big box so my boss was angry and not let me get package at work anymore haha.

Ya, but generally we do not consider it of great taste quality.  It's big and beautiful and grows well in the hot wet SW so is commercial, but not the best tasting. One of the cheaper ones per kg but their size is huge so growers still make good $ :) I used to grow it for same reason haha.

Jinhuang is  the pinyin translation.

Do you grow it there now?

Which mango is best in taiwan?

Utu: Jackfruit Fruit Similar to Irregular Shapes

Thailand hav much Taiwan mango now, very big and very nice one. I like jakrapat and red elephant.

This one can be kim hong....other ones are better.

8
Which keledang taste best? Big or small one?

And what keleddang is from smallest tree?

9
So this one is no cling to seed, but i see something in the pulasanflesh from the seed...is like rambutan which has same problem.

I always think that no cling to seed means the seed come out like from a longan, just very clean flesh.

Also i thought that seebabat is always black or very dark....so seebabat can also be red one...i learn something today.

I have pulasantree but him not so happy...is same color fruit as on picture, very dark one.

10
Pulasan HOCK94 seeds added ...

Is black pulasan from same tree as red pulasan?

11
Does it taste better than pedalai?

12
I still donít see any fruit set as yet.
Peter

A recent study by researchers at the Department of Biological Sciences, College of Science and Technology, Covenant University Ogun State in Nigeria showed that the local cherry fruit, African star apple (Agbalumo, Udara) lowered blood sugar and cholesterol, and could be useful in preventing and treating heart diseases

But the plant will drink more when it gets bigger.  So if you start with peat and that will become mud after a year it can also be a good thing if the plant grew a lot in that year so it can get more water from the mudsoil.

Here we spray mangoflowers with water so dead flowers fall off...then they cannot get fungus anymore.

Also helps to not have much leaves under tree, fungus likes that.

And potassium is good for mango, and enough water.

What mango is it?

Yes Thailand, i put the shells on top of the soil, my tree's are in containers.

But i now know how they got in the container, i used natural soil from a special place...loam soil.

Now i have special soil from Germany in a bag, that will be sterili i think so i will use that and wash the container very good.

But i have many tree's in that natural soil, so i need to eat many shrimps and put that on top of soil, or do we need to mix it in the soil?

I also will grow french marigold around my tree's in ground, hope they go away but then they go to another fruittree.

Here is no lab, i have never heard of it. But i can use German soil with sand mixed, i think that's good but no cheap. Will do that for rare tree's, not for guava. I have more guava's, don't care much for chonburi white, is small fruit but taste good.

Shrimp shells are good for growing pathogenic microbes, after they digest the shells then huge population turns on the chtin http://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0LEVu6kwjtaXT0A43YnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTByOHZyb21tBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg--/RV=2/RE=1513894693/RO=10/RU=http%3a%2f%2fipm.ucanr.edu%2fPMG%2fr280200111.html/RK=2/RS=Rmzx70Q7fmYn8Tj7sDAoXLaOpjI-

If you have a neem tree you can make teas and drench soil with it as a insect growth regulant.
Also if their are healthy wild guavas might make good rootstock


What do i need from neemtree? I know one not far away. But is neemoil also good? Is easy to buy for me.

I did soildrench with woodvinegar some weeks ago, the worms came out...can that also kill nematodes? Now worms are back, many of them.

Crab and shrimp is easy for me, put all shells in blender with water and throw on soil.
But will that sure help? I want to put new tree in that soil, is very good soil, expensive.

Beneficial nematodes i don't know where to buy, is there online shop?

My Chonburi-white guava was not happy, it has many bubbles on the root.

So i killed him but i have many more guava tree's, will they also have nematode?

I put many shrimps and crabs in blender and will feed it to them. Is that enough?

What other fruit tree's can have nemotades?
