Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Thai Sweet Tamarinds.

Out of curiosity, how big do tamarinds have to get before they start fruiting?  I have two here, "shrub sized" at present.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Overmulching?

Not over done.  You can put way more than 3".  That stuff will break down quickly.  Citrus, no problem, I have all my citrus mulched.  It retains water in our dry environment and breaks down and feeds worms.  Trees respond very well to heavy mulching.  Best if you can have them get you something like pine or other soft wood.  Hard wood is ok but can rob you of nitrogen and will take a long time to break down.  You want to get mulch with some leafy green in it also to add some nitrogen to all the wood carbon.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Winter weather Florida..so far so good

Yes we've had a solid week long cold/cool snap...which is increasingly rare in recent years especially in SE FL. After tonight tho...it looks like we are in for week-10 day spell of warmer weather with highs around 80..and lows a little above normal  in the mid to upper 60s...

I wonder what those changes will bring.

The forecast continues to be dry though ....





Those lows are 10-12 degrees above historical average. More of the same garbage thatís happened after cold fronts the last several winters.

Yes, we left Costa Rica.
Nam Dok Mai is legendary, the sweetest Mango Iíve ever tasted and doesnít have fibers.
It is very special, and one of my favourites❤️

Mango's are not so good now, you should eat them in April and May....after soo much sunshine.

I'd say the RH and temps is whatever is indigeous to their natural environment.  Before I embark on an kind of plant material I find out how and where they grow and try to duplicate it.  Based on your production it's pretty nice that they adjust well.

Beauty of a water/solar system!   Pumping treated water into the tank and then out as needed is fine.

With this clod snap I'm expecting a decent bloom in a few weeks.
I got to start spraying sulfur soon to combat any powdery mildew.

I recently dumped a truckload of mulch on some of my trees.
Its over a foot deep in some areas, no ill effect yet.
Just make sure to leave a decent space between you trunk and the mulch as you don't want to bury the root crown.
