Hello everyone

I would like to share and know your results from your anona grafts. I grafted a total of 77, between March and April, scions before I left on vacation. 72 took so I was delighted with the results. I left 30 or so of the small grafted trees in full shade, a handful in full sun and about 20 on establish inground trees, when I return I found all grafts in full sun fried the rest survived. Here are pix of some of the surviving  grafts
I still have 20 or so in shade.









All of my Anona Rosada grafts have taken, thanks again 😊

How do you stored pollen for future use and how long will they last?

You harvest the fresh pollen at night then you let it dry out then store in the freezer. It should last you a couple of months

I found a couple of these bugs on my mango tree and was wondering what are they, and if they are a potential problem

Hello, I'm about to order some Sumo Mandarin budwood from CCPP, and I was wondering what would be a good rootstock to graft it onto?

This is one is starting to push


Looking good David.,..you are finally going to grow your elusive anona rosada.
I'm going to turn this thread into report your take on Sunday
So far The following have taken:

Anon Dulce
La Habra prolific
PPC
Big Red
La Habra Gold
Anona Rosada
And others I forgot. I will have some of the trees for sale in fall
I know, and I'm very excited to see how it does when it full takes. My parents would tell me memories about how they loved this fruit, and I'm hoping to remind them of the taste when I get my first fruits.

Schutzhund, if your tree was planted from seed, it would just be a seedling variety. Even if the seedling came from a polyembryonic variety of mango, I would call it XXX seedling. For example, if it was a Nam Doc Mai seedling, I would call it as such.

Simon
How can I tell if a seedling is polyembryonic or monoembryonic?
And the pictures are from last year.

Probably the easiest way to tell is to open up a seed from the fruit and see if it has multiple segments in it. If you post a picture of the embryo, we may be able to give you an educated guess.

Simon

Ok I'll make sure to post some pictures of the seed when I have some fruits

Squam256 and Dongeorgio may still be selling scions. Sweet Tart is extremely sweet when grown in California and harvested ripe. Once you get the hang of when to harvest it, you can ripen it less for more acid balance or let it get fully ripe for much less acidity and much more sweetness.

Those people that are sensitive to overly sweet fruit may want to avoid this variety along with LZ and several other Zill varieties that are ultra sweet. DOT is also an excellent variety.

Many Mango growers in SoCal have had success planting random mango seeds into the ground. These seedling trees are known to grow to huge proportions. When growing seedlings in the ground, do not graft them with mature scions until the seedling is fully established and in exponential growth phase.

When grafted(mature scion) mango trees are grown in SoCal, many of them will flower within one year and continue to flower every year from then on. This issue can be avoided by simply holding off on grafting with mature scion wood until the tree is fruiting size.

Simon
Sounds good I'm thinking about buying a Manila from Home Depot to use as rootstock. I have this mango tree that is about 12 years that my dad planted from seed, the seed came from our neighbor who went to El Grullo, Jalisco in Mexico, and the tree gives us very delicious and fiberless fruits the only problem is I don't know what variety it is

David

I don't understand what answer you are looking for you gotta trust Simon and Behl....they know what they are talking about remember what happen with Adam.

this is on my ataufo rootstock I had over 80 on a 2 year graft last season




One branch from my friends ataulfo 2 year graft

from my mom's 2 year Manila rootstock look at the size of the 2" trunk nearly kill my tree... 22 ST




I haven't said anything bad or disrespectful if you read through my replies, I just asked if Sweet Tart was productive and what does it look like. I'm also grateful for the helpful information that I have received regarding this topic. One more question how's the taste and where can I find scions for Sweet Tart and Angie?

Simon

Ilamas on custard apple stock (reticulata)


Genova Red


Anona Rosada

Both grafted 2/27/17
Still waiting for the others to push.

In ground tree grafts were doing well until some critters decided to chew on the tags.
Still some takes

Are they both grafted onto Reticulata Rootstock ?

One of your choice is Carrie I would opt for Angie and Sweet tart. PM Behl he might have them available
Haha I picked those choices because those are the ones I can find at the nursery. Are Angie and Sweet Tart high productive?

Hello everyone, I currently have space for one more mango tree in my yard and I need help deciding which mango to get, my current choices are Pickering, Mallika, and Carrie. Feel free to throw in any suggestions on what variety I should get. I'm currently growing Glenn, Kent, Valencia Pride, and 3 unknown varieties.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Greenhouse Suggestions
« on: March 09, 2017, 10:18:25 AM »
Hi Schutzhund. It depends on whether it takes to be greenhouse year-round or only seasonal. Seasonal, of course, easier to do and prepare than year-round. Of great importance is the location and specific construction of the greenhouse facility. In short, depending on whether it is from the south or from the north, how high is the greenhouses, whether they are large trees shading if they do not exist - you struggled with different issues. Regards. Dominik
I'm thinking year round, it's going to be a small 8 to 9 feet tall greenhouse in the corner of my yard

I'm currently working on building a small greenhouse that would house my Purple Mangosteen seedling along with other plants. And I was wondering if I can get some suggestions on what to include in the greenhouse that would help.
