Should I cut off some of the panicles, to make it bloom again to stretch out the harvest?

Is this leaf curl from too much fertilizer?

I've finally started coming around to ST. I basically wait until its fully yellow.
Definitely a flavor bomb, the more i eat the more it grows on me and i can't understand why.

Kent, hatcher, providence maybe pickering

Did you spray onto the soft, new foliage?  If so, what time of day?

How big/old is the tree?  How often and how do you water?

Guilty of spraying it on new foliage!  Tree is 8 yrs/ 12'  X 5" diameter trunk. Sprayed at night. Water thoroughly once a week, along with sprinkling about 3x week.

My Dot's new leaves are curling  :-[ maybe I over did the fertilizer? I put some palm fert that I had left over along with a couple handfuls of calcium. To top it off i sprayed with some nutrient spray. Maybe I over did it???

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lisa vs Gefner
« on: July 09, 2016, 09:03:35 AM »
I want to plant a tree in my sandy soil yard in FL about half mile from the ocean. I went to Excalibur, and I told them I wanted a Gefner. They took me  around and we picked out a nice tree that had a fruit on it. I considered this a good sign. We went back to pay for it and I asked what kind it was and they said Lisa. The guy said that Lisa is better, and the lady that was there should know, because she has worked there for 20 years. She mumbled something about Gefners having more worms in the fruits and drove off. They said I could trade it for a Gefner if I wanted, but Lisa is better. I know from looking at the threads that there is quite a bit of opinion about this. All I want is a tree that is productive and tasty, with no fuss and can be maintained at about 15 ft in south Florida near the coast. Thanks for your input

How old is the tree ?
just curious as mine is 3 now, but still pretty small comparatively.
I think about 7 years

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fairchild Gardens 2016 Mango Festival
« on: June 07, 2016, 02:08:25 PM »
Zill's sells mangos at the house in the evening accept Saturday they always have a tasting table. They usually have a large variety.  It is near Bethesda.  Truly tropical sells lots of trees from the zill's, so does Excalibur. Check out Chris's mango blog. I plan to go to the Fairchild festival, for a day because it fits my schedule. It should be fun. This year's theme is mangoes of Cuba

I picked some because I could not bag them all. They are getting rave reviews from my Lychee lovin' friends. Very meaty and pretty sweet considering that they are not ripe ripe. Seems like quite a few chicken tongue seeds too!
