Buy online from Dekopon is also known as Shiraniu in Florida.

This is a picture of the 3 gallon Casturi Mango I purchased in November last year.

A few pictures of Lisa Atemoya

Hi Carlos,

Last year I purchased an Annona Reticulata from you and I forgot what variety of Custard Apple it is. The date of your post was November 19, 2016. My plant that you sold me is doing great almost double in size.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Thinning Sweet Tart ?
« on: October 13, 2017, 12:04:02 PM »
I have attached a picture of my Sweet Tart holding fruit which is growing in a 25 gallon container. This is the first year that I have gotten fruit and I have only had the tree for two years. Also, I have attached a few pictures of the fruit I picked off the tree. I did pick them a little earlier than I would normally pick them because once they really start turning yellow I have to fight off the squirrels, they will even chew through the mesh bags to get at the fruit. I didn't thin out any of the fruit as it only set fifteen mangos.

I purchase these Vesco anvil pruners and have been very happy with them. If the blades wear out or if they get damaged they sell spare parts for them.

I'm interested in purchasing Gold Nugget if it's still available. I live 5 minutes away in Cooper City.
Let me know what you have available.

Thanks Mark, this was my first fruit on this tree and I'm pretty happy with the size and taste of the fruit.

Here are few pictures of the Sweet Tart mangoes that I harvested this year. The reason I picked them a little early is because once they started really coloring up the squirrels would find them. I used mesh bags but they still chewed through. My tree is in a 25 gal container and gave me (13) fruit this year and they  really tasted outstanding.

These anvil pruners are manufactured by Vesco and are made in Italy. They are a little pricey but the nice thing is you can buy spare parts for the pruners if any part of the pruners get damaged. They sell them in two sizes.

Found this Cuban Knight Anole digging a hole in my mango tree container to bury an egg which she just laid.

No roundup around my house. The strange thing is it's only happening to the FP and there are other mango trees next to it.

Can someone tell me what's going on with the leaves on my Fruit Punch mango tree. I have had it in 7 gallon nursery pot for over a year and I plan on stepping it up this weekend.
Some of the new growth looks fine then other leaves are curling and drying up. Out of the ten varieties of mangoes I have this is only happening to the FP mango tree.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Can you tell me if this is iron deficiency or manganese deficiency. These are two pictures I took today
of my potted Xie Shan Satsuma which is next to two potted Shiranui and a potted Sugar belle. Besides
leaf miners the other citrus trees look fine. Any help would be appreciated.

Here are a few pictures of my Pitangatuba flowering and setting fruit:

I believe I got about 25 to 30 Mahachanok mangoes last year. It was in the 45 gallon container
at the time. After I harvest the fruit this year, I will be repotting the Mahachanok into a 65 gallon

I just purchase three 7 gallon Pitangatuba plants from South Miami yesterday, two out of the three have fruit and all three are flowering. I've never tasted the fruit before
so I purchased them based on recommendation alone, plus at the price the nursery was selling them I couldn't resist.

My Mahachanok was one of my favorite tasting mangoes last season. I think it's a great container mango, it  has good disease resistance and is a good producer. I would definitely recommend Mahachanok besides it's a nice looking mango.

Thank you guys for the encouraging words. I am also growing Rollinia in a 45 gallon container, a Lisa Atemoya in a 45 gallon container, Gefner and Dream in 25 gallon containers, two Abiu's in 15 gallon containers, and various other Annonas, Citrus, White Sapote, Guavas, Ilamas, Figs, Custard Apples, and Mulberries. The Lisa, Gefner, Dream, and two Sugar Apples are all multi-grafted with 3 to 4 different varieties of Atemoyas and Cherimoyas.

You can use a large chipping hammer with a long chisel bit to break up the rocks and loosen up the soil.
Also you use a large steel breaker bar to break up the ground then shovel out the loose material.

All my mangoes in containers are growing in Fafard soil.
