Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango identification (Rapoza???)
« on: July 08, 2018, 03:14:12 PM »
Hello everyone, I just ate the first "Rapoza" mango off my tree. The fruit was delicious, spicy, juicy and I was able to detect some citrus flavor as described by TopTropicals (where I bought my tree from) However, it wasn't completely fiberless —the fibers were not enough to bother my daughter or myself though. Now, I'm curious to know whether I have a real Rapoza or something else since Rapozas are supposed to be fiberless. The tree's characteristics seem to jive with those of a Rapoza tree like random blooming throughout the year, over 20 mangoes on a 6'x6' tree, very decease resistant and even got some gummosis due to cooper deficiency last year.

This is the link to TT:

These are the pictures of the mangoes I just picked off the tree ( The tree still has some green ones )


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango thief captured

Here is the one that was eating my Rapoza mangoes before I had the chance to try them for the first time. I used a half eaten mango to lure him into the trap and it worked. Now, it's BBQ time my friends.

The critter tried my Mallika mangoes first, but apparently the Mallikas were too hard, so it switched to the Rapoza tree. Now, since I'm already here, can someone please tell me whether it's time to pick my Mallikas 'cause they all look mature green to me. I have a Mallika ( see picture below next to a Pickering) that the prisoner knocked down but didn't touch, which is approx 6 inches long and has started to turn yellow.

The ones on the tree are even larger (7 inches long) as shown in the picture below (keep in mind that I don't have small hands)

Thanks a lot for your input!!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango tree blooming at the end of August

This is the first time that one of my mango trees (Rapoza variety) is blooming at the end of August  :o
Has anyone here experienced this before? When is this tree planning to bear fruits?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Do I need to get rid of this mango tree?
« on: April 10, 2017, 04:07:14 PM »
I have this almost 2-years-old Rapoza mango tree that has been extremely healthy until recently that it started to bleed from the trunk and one stem. I did a research and it seems to be Gummosis. Can the mango experts here please take a look at the pics and let me know whether I'm right? If the tree is being afected by Gummosis, is it possible to cure the tree or should I just get rid of it in order not to spread the bacteria?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Glenn Mango Tree dropping young leaves
« on: December 13, 2016, 02:04:07 PM »
Hello everyone!

My name is Alejandro from Weston, FL. I'm new to the forum and I have been searching for a little while now, but haven't been able to pinpoint exactly what's wrong with my mango tree. If anyone here can help me to identify why young leaves (the ones from the last flushing) are turning brown and falling, I'll appreciate it a lot. Thanks!!

FYI: The tree has not been fertilized since September and the temperature here hasn't dropped below 55 degrees so far this year.
