Regarding taste, CC is top tier. Top 5. FP makes my top 30.

Pictures of the problems will help others help you solve it.

I agree. I think fruit punch is a nice Mango but not on that elite level with Cotton Candy.

Do you sell any already grafted scions, or the scions/budwood only?

We sell grafted trees but we don’t ship those.

Could it be kesar? 

I initially bought online the kesar , then I ask them to swap it out for a Mahachanok.

It’s not Kesar.

This mango fell from my Hatcher. I can see fine splits in the rot spot. What dreaded disease is this?


Neofusicoccum or Phomopsis rot. You will probably lose most of the fruit to it.

Finally a tree ripened Florigon mango on my tree. I previously ate a few drops that were faulty. This particular mango is very very small but it was good tasting (I started to zoom in like a fish tale... but went with the ruler  ;D ). The typical citrus/mango taste of this Florigon and it was sweet. This is a thin skinned mango & I ate the skin also as I think doing so gives it more citrus zest.

Sorry I could not post earlier Alex but nothing but faulty drops previously at my residence; a few weeks later than last year at my residence.

Anyone else in S. Florida with ripe mangos, I would love to see your 2018 mango pictures posted.... 




Nice looking fruit . I should check our Florigon tree to see if anything is close.

Got the first Pim Sen Mun and Torbert of the season today.

It’s grafting season again. Selling mango, avocado and Sapodilla scions for $4 a scion + shipping. No minimum order.  I have a full potential-availability list here (note that this differs from the full list of stuff we’re growing, as many types are too small or unavailable due to proprietary reasons):
https://tropicalacresfarms.com/budwood-availability

Currently Won’t ship outside the US ( no time for customs forms, other parcel services etc)

Please email me with your requested list ****BEFORE*** placing your order so I can check the status of the buds.

Venus, Angie, Sunset and Simmonds yesterday:


Also harvested first Haden.

Nice score Alex!  Amazing you have Venus so early!  They're usually later right?  From what I recall last year, it was coming around early - mid August.

I guess their primary season is July/August but I usually get some spring ones.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: mango varieties that drop less fruit?
« on: April 26, 2018, 11:19:27 AM »
are there certain varieties of mango tree that tend to drop less than others?

Also, in general, does planting in-ground vs potted make a difference in fruit drop?

Carrie, Julie, Edward are a couple that retain well.

Harvested the first Jean Ellen fruits of the season today:



Come on people where are your mangos  ;)

Thanks Alex & Cookie Monster.  I'm hoping my trees stay safe from the fruit BBS.  There's no preventative measures that we know of at this point right (for fruit BBS)?

Lots of copper. Practicing Good orchard sanitation. Windbreaks.

15
Thanks Alex and Har.  So I guess at this point I just need to wait to see if the fruit develops it too.  What are the odds my fruit would have BBS considering the tree has foliar BBS?

There’s no direct correlation. Sweet Tart can get both.

Hello,

I'm almost afraid to ask this.  I notice a couple of my leaves on my Sweet Tart have black blemishes.  There's really only 1 leaf that has a lot of it.  I'm afraid it's bacterial black spot, but I'm not sure.  Sweet Tart is my favorite mango, and I'd be extremely sad if it's BBS, especially considering I bought the tree last year as a 7 gallon and haven't even had 1 fruit from it.  Other than the couple of leaves, the tree looks pretty healthy to me.  Should I be concerned or is it nothing?

















It’s bacterial spot. At least the foliar form of it. Not a big deal unless you also have the strain that attacks the fruit.

Gary Zill changed the name. He also told me they’re renaming ‘Marlys’ to “All Summer” or “Summer-long” or something like that.

Does Carabao usually produce this early? Is it a different variety within the Philippines mango? I saw a Philippine tag today that said June-July. Having the Rosigold (at least 2 weeks till ripe) and looking to add another super early.

It’s the same as “Philippine”. I’d say it usually starts in May. One tree had a significant March/April crop though.

Rosa is a more consistent spring mango. Edward and Dwarf Hawaiian also.

The girls are headed down Saturday for visiting family and would like to pre order a box for their kin and another for us.   

What is the best way to order. They would pick up Saturday morning on way down.

Likely wouldn’t have enough for a box at the moment. Maybe just Contact us directly on Saturday to see what we have.

Alex, in your mango descriptions (very cool and helpful btw!) you mention nitrogen can affect the amount of fiber in a Madame Francis mango. Does more nitrogen = more fiber or vice versa? Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback.

More nitrogen = more fiber and this can be true of other varieties as well.

Madame Francis grown in high-nitrogen muck are often fairly fibrous (and don’t taste as sweet). Those grown under low N conditions have barely noticeable fiber and are actually pretty good flavor-wise.
