Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Can Maha Chanok Be Grown In A Pot?
« on: February 07, 2019, 10:32:02 AM »

I use Fafard 3B mix and I usually add a few worm castings, Azomite, and a handful of perlite to the mix. This tree was purchased as a 25 gal. and was stepped up the next year to a 45 gal., it has been in that pot for over 2 years. I would estimate that the tree is probably  4 to 5 years old.


I move all my potted trees with a hand truck.

The first picture was taken a week ago after pruning the Florida Super Hass tree. The two other pictures were taken on September 9th while holding some fruit.

Hi George,

I received your package yesterday and everything was in perfect condition, thank you. I also appreciated the extra bonus scions.



Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Seeking info on M-4 mango

I purchased these M-4 mangoes from Zill's last week. I also have an M-4 mango tree that I purchased last year that is now growing in a 7-gallon nursery pot. So far, I haven't had any issues with the tree and I definitely do enjoy the eating the fruit.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: When to pick Mallika mango?
« on: July 01, 2018, 11:29:43 AM »
In the first picture are nine Mallika mangoes that I picked green with a slight shade of yellow, I then wrapped them in paper bags, placed them in a basket and set them on a shelve in a closet for 10 days. I probably should have checked them before the 10 days as a few were ready a few days before.

My next door neighbor dropped off these two mango varieties yesterday but didn't know the varieties. Anyone recognize them?

Hereís a picture of my Maha.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Critters Eating Mangoes
« on: May 27, 2018, 02:10:40 PM »
Can anyone give there opinion of what critter is eating my Maha Chanok mangoes on my tree? So far Iíve lost 3 fruit in the last four days, whatever it is they eat almost half of the fruit in one sitting. Iím thinking that itís got to be larger than rats or squirrels since in the past they would eat a little section of the fruit at a time not over half of the fruit. Last year I used mesh bags with pretty good results. Any advise would be appreciated.

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.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Double cut vs bypass pruners.
« on: August 24, 2017, 08:26:28 PM »
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.
