Irma Deaths

I thought these would come back but they're dead.  The Pickering mango and vexator were great producers. The vexator produced thousands of fruit a year.

Did your experience yield any clues about how/why these died while others didn't? I know of a small field of 2 yr old sugar apples which stayed submerged for over a week. The deaths were random as far as I could see, maybe 5% of the field.

It's disappointing to hear that some of your prized trees did not make it.  I hope you have no more of your trees die due to the hurricane/post hurricane effects.  Looking on the bright side, you have an opportunity to replace the trees and try something new. Some of your other trees are recovering nicely!
