A number of Zill (among other) varieties are known to be inconsistent with their seed.  Odd but true.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Citrus leaf pic - iron deficiency?
« Last post by greenman62 on Today at 05:44:25 PM »
is it mainly on new growth or old ?

ive added epsom and iron to my citrus
and they greeneds up quite nicely.

Iron deficiency
starts on young terminal leaves and later works inward to the older leaves. However, deficiencies in manganese,
zinc or nitrogen develop on inner or older leaves first and then progress outward.
Symptoms include leaves turning yellow or brown in the margins between the veins which may remain green,
while young leaves may appear to be bleached

Due to magnesium’s mobile nature, the plant will first break down chlorophyll in older leaves and transport the Mg to younger leaves
 Excess potassium, generally due to fertilizers, further aggravates the stress from magnesium deficiency,[2] as does aluminium toxicity.[3]
Interveinal chlorotic mottling or marbling of the older leaves which proceeds toward the younger leaves as the deficiency becomes more severe.

Manganese (Mn)
deficiency is a plant disorder that is often confused with, and occurs with, iron deficiency. Most common in poorly drained soils, also where organic matter levels are high. Manganese may be unavailable to plants where pH is high.

It is a component of chlorophyll, so when nitrogen is insufficient, leaves will take on a yellow (chlorotic) appearance down the middle of the leaf.  Restricted growth of tops and roots and especially lateral shoots. Plants become spindly with gen eral chlorosis of entire plant to a light green and then a yellowing of older leaves which proceeds toward younger leaves

Currently the lineup is projected to include. Others may also feature.

Lemon Zest
Cotton Candy
Coconut Cream
Pineapple Pleasure
Sweet Tart
Golden Queen
Honey Kiss
Ice Cream
Orange Sherbet

Drop Golden Queen. Add Fairchild and Piña Colada.

BSBullie says a Phoenix tree that big is suspicious because of the length of time the variety has been in development.  That guys knows more about Mangos than most of us ever will and I trust his views even though he has hammered at me before.  The tree is CLEARLY in front of a sign from Fruitscapes.  How else do you explain that tree being in front of Fruitscapes?????  Did it just grow legs and walk there on its own?
 Maybe hitchhiked there?  Maybe you should open the picture up and use your eyes instead of telling me to keep my mouth shut and look at the picture Gosp posted.

I'm not trying to troll anybody or make any allegations but if I see a picture of a recently purchased tree in front of a nursery I would think the tree is purchased from that nursery.  Logic.

Gosp - if you didn't purchase the tree from Fruitscapes I apologize but even your edit says "I was told I got the authentic Phoenix unless something is cooking" so you admit something could be up.

Many people have been burned here buying one tree and getting another from various places and from what I've read I will take BSBullie's opinion on a Mango tree variety over what a nursery tag may be or say.

You implied that Steve and Fruitscapes was a dishonest business, a libelous statement for which you had no evidence.  You did so with your sarcastic statement followed by several  ::) ::) ::) - called rolleyes for a reason.  You did not simply state it was from Fruitscapes, had you done so I would have had no issue with it. You had to follow up with several rolleyes.

You obviously don't understand how hard it is to own and operate an honest business.  Their prices - by far - are some of the best I've found anywhere.  Someone has a post here from a few days ago where Steve traded out a tree that they bought, then didn't care for the fruit.  I had a macadamia nut tree that died after several months, he replaced it without issue.  It's in a pot waiting to go into the ground right now.

My pics were just of a few trees in Cairns that finished fruiting in May/early June. They were festooned and the friend in the pic above also grabbed a bag of them.There are probably very few trees that produce that much volume per area.
Fruitscapes might have what you're looking for. I know they have a ton of mangoes.
Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Ichangquat other than 6-7-2
« Last post by Florian on Today at 04:20:56 PM »
I hadn't paid too much attention to my plant, so I was all the more pleased to find it covered in flower buds. Sorry for the bad quality photo.

This is the 245, not the 6-7-2. It will be interesting to see whether there are any differences.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: How to get rid of peach tree leaf spot?
« Last post by Coach62 on Today at 04:17:05 PM »
Straight up 10-10-10 often doesn't have micros.  Does the one you're using?

I have really found that regular citrus fertilizer with full micros works well.  Yes, they like their fertilizer, but not all at once.  They are subject to root burn.  I find lighter, more frequent feedings work best.

Here are my peaches, which were just put in the ground to replace the trees Irma killed.  They've only been in the ground around 6 months.

2 questions - One, peaches do NOT like wet feet.  Is that spot well drained?  2. Which peach tree is it?  You say low chill, but how many hours required, and how many do you receive every year?
