Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: The Mystery of the “Himsagar” mango in Florida
« Last post by noochka1 on January 22, 2018, 06:35:19 AM »
I guess well see in 3-4years when they bear fruit. For the record, I ordered 3 trees from this vendor (Anwar, Sindhri, and Langra). When I got them, the Langra was consistent with the mature tree I had at another location. And the others didn't remind me of any cv. I'm familiar with- even Julie. I looked really hard. The grafts looked really clean though- like big nursery operation clean. Oh well...

I bought from him before Thanksgiving. Now I see he has sellling Banganapalle and Chaunsa. amd using the same "mature tree" photo for both cvs.

The grafts look clean because they’re T-buds. Guess who wholesells T-budded 1 gallon mangos....


Have you had any opportunity to speak with that wholesaler?  I'd really like to know what I've got planted in my yard.

Tomorrow if I have the time.

Thank you.  At least that will bring some resolution.

Hi Mike
Very productive tree !! None of mine flowered this year even though only a few km away - maybe too much rain. Looks like a nice small tree to fit in limited space. Did you get it off Peter Salleras / Katrina? I have a few grafted varieties from them. All still very small. Very tempting to poke another one in even though I probably don’t really have enough space
Regards Jim

It is very common for the young seedlings of PT to keep green  leaves over the winter.
Moreover, in poncirus  nucellar seed formation  is not obligate. It depends on the season and variety, many of  seedlings are zygotic, giving plants different from the mother.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Shipping mango tree

This might be a dumb question to ask.
I am planning on shipping a mango tree to a friend.
Have anyone in here shipped and what carrier to use?

I would replace the tree. I hate the idea of a damaged tree like that surviving only OK for years before rot and knowing that if I had planted a replacement when I first noticed it would probably be double the size and healthy. You could buy/start some seedlings and graft this variety onto them? Would be a fitting replacement :)

The damage takes up such a large area and goes so low that I think the tree is very unlikely to remain in a healthy, upright state for more than a few years. I wonder if there is enough healthy wood at the base to bridge graft without leaving a hole where disease and insects would find a home. You could plant a couple of seedlings close and pleach the strongest one into the trunk, but you will always have to rub off any sprout from the seedling. It would be an interesting experiment and that is what I would do; but I have five acres and like to experiment. And at my age 3 years is probably more precious than 3 years is at your age.
