Gary, it was "in the ground 5 months", and.... in the pot 3 years (JF forgot to mention.) :D. I just can't resist, because I am so jealous.

...in the ground 5 months and has 12 huge fruit?  That sounds almost too good to be true....
I've seen them before, that variety and shape I think, but can't remember what it was
called....

but WOW, how impressive!  And unbelievable......


Gary

Good seedling genetics I would assume  ;D
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

@JF
We can get winter/cold seasons where it rains twice in 6 months. So plants-trees will need water especially young ones...We can get droughts where we get lots of fires in the Everglades where the smoke can be smelled where I live.

THANKS nch - thanks for the clarification on the "12 papayas in 5 months" super plant
that JF has - I thought it was too good to be true!  So, no one has yet to
identify that papaya?

Gary

JF - you are getting good at grafting, for sure!

a year later many of the fruit trees that were grafted are now producing. Mangos are 2 to 3 months away from ripening. I have Sir Prize, Ismael(Cuban re avocado) fruiting. I'll post update of the entire orchard in August or September during the mango tasting

 
PM loaded with flower after 1 yr grafted


some of the fruiting mangos some multi-grafted

Multi-grafted: Chemex, Bangalore, Mayabeque, Kesar, Manga Amarilla, Mahachanok (HHS),Sweet Tard and others






La Habra Sun


Mahachanok ( Excalibur)

Haha, so true, for me as well. JF needs to have a seminar on how to grow fruit trees in SoCal.

Frank,
how much/often do you water those plants? What fertilizers?

Thanks,
Trung

I spread a thick layer of mulch 2-3 times a year. For fertilizer I use BioFlora  6-6-6 every 3 months, foliar fert. Every 3 weeks 10-52-10 and kelp once in awhile. I water 3 x a week 1g each time

oh, I don't do as much fertilizer or water.. maybe that's why..

I apply Dynagro 7-9-5 just once in the fall, and once or twice in spring before March.. is this the same as the BioFlora, or similar?
so every 3 weeks you apply a 10-52-10 ratio foliar fertilizer? wow.. then you must need a lot of water to wash that all out..
for the BioFlora, do you put that in the soil, or apply it as foilar spray too?

yeah, for the water, I use two 4GPHs flag drippers (one one each side) and just do 10-15 minutes every 2 days.. so that applies to about 8 x 12.5min/60min (20%) => 1.6 gallons per 2 days? sometimes I do the drip for 20+, but rarely on occasions.. but as I'm on a hillside, maybe not all the water does get to the roots for all the plants..

Thanks for your info if you can answer my questions.

My fruit planting area is not nearly as large as your yard. For "mulch", can I just use those wood chips bags at Home Depot? I think you had your mulch delivered by the cubic yard in a truck, didn't you? I don't need that much.

For water, you said 1 gallon each time, is that just 1 gallon per tree?, so 3 gallons/tree/week, that's certainly not much water at all. 

Where do you get the Bioflora 6-6-6? I typed the name in Amazon's search box, and only skin conditioning/lotion stuff came up.  ;D

Yes you can you find Cedar chips bags from Lowes but go to your local arborist the have great mulch. I buy BioFlora with calcium from L&M in temecula never use Dynagro you might need to increase your wTer

Dynagro is bad? ClayMango recommended that to me last time.. which one should i use instead? Last time I saw in a post that you mentioned BioFlora Humega? is that it?

Hey Newgen, I'll try to find a place for us to buy it online.. see if you can find one too.. Thanks. They also have a "Dry Crumbles Fertilizer" too..

Also found this while browsing Amazon..

http://www.amazon.com/TeraVita-SP-90-Humic-Soluble-Powder/product-reviews/B00912FRO2/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

this might help.. I heard great things about adding humic acid to the soil.. it looks like same as others.. 1 tbsp per gallon.. also mix it in with azomite too (amazon has one in a 10 pound bag), and you have a winner..  ;D that's according to one review person though..

Michsu, you can get azomite from CPS/L&M in Temecula too. Something like 40lb for $20
I tried going the Amazon way but shipping was too much.
The problem is I don't go to SD that much, and Temecula is not part of my route to SD.

Good job, everything looks very happy. Your neighbors are going to have some real eye candy when all the fruits start sizing up.

Tremendo!! Amazing job! Now you biggest concern will be prunning the trees, so that they don't get too big...

JF - Tuffy sure is a camera hog!

And I agree with Bush2Beach - those neighbors are going to drooling when those
trees are dripping with fruit.....

Hey did you all of you in SoCal get a good rain soaking over this past weekend?  Man it was
so Florida-like here - just loved it!

Yo˝i is being territorial just in case my mastiffs get any wild ideas :)
guys this orchard is already producing but as Felipe points out containing the forest is going to be a real challenge.


Cuban and Vietnamese cachucha peppers





over 100 mangos and other tropicals





Many tomato varieties
