Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Best potting soil
« on: December 10, 2017, 03:38:21 PM »
I use 100% clay dirt on mangoes.. i get no problems for the oast 2 years...


I know you're being facetious but I noticed the amateur nursery guy I buy my mango seedlings from has his in 3 gallon containers full of mostly sand and very little organic matter. They are big and beautiful. So as an experiment last February I put 20 12"-18" Guamuchil seedlings in pots full of 3/4 sand/dirt from my front yard and 1/4 steer manure. Then ran a stingy drip system along all of them. At the same time I put 10 in in a mixture of 1/2 Miracle Grow, 1/2 Patio Plus potting soil mix, that I hand water as needed. To date all the seedlings in in the dirt mix are 5-7' tall and still full of red tips growing like crazy. The ones in the potting soil mix are green and beautiful but only around 3 feet tall, and they have stopped growing in the cold. They are half the size of the ones in the dirt mix. They only thing I have added to the ones in dirt is citrus fertilizer every couple of months. They are also covered in grass and have castor bean plants growing above them blocking out a lot of the sun. Confused...

No reason to be facetious. All nutrients are already in the dirt. U just need to reintroduce the beneficial microbial network to loosen up the dirt &  also break down the nutrients for the plantsts uptake... & yes, i do use filtered water to drench my trees.

If u  go back to  previous timelines, there is no such thing as best potting mix but dirt.  Happy gardening. ;)

Bigger & better tasting according to Adam.

Contact adam aka FlyingFoxFruits, he has a superior version of lemon drop.

That is bacupari (garcinia brasiliensis). Not lemon drop (garcinia intermedia).


U are absolutely correct. Though,.the OP may consider superior version of lemon drop by Adam.

The green spots on the new growth look like what often happens from nutritional sprays.

These new leaves havent been sprayed.
I do wonder what this indicates.

12
Lack of iron for new growth leaves?



13
If I had to choose between Butter Cream and Orange Essence, which one would it be to put into ground? I like complex flavors.

Cumbe is considered, by Peruvians, to be the best cherimoya or annona in the world. My tree is 3 years old and so far it seems very promising. We have a lot of top tiers moyas so itís very difficult for an anona to break in the upper echelon. Cumbe and La Habra Sun appear to be strong contenders and top tier anonas


Cumbe is definitely a good fruit.

More flesh than seeds & has a balance flavor. No bitter aftertaste.
