is lack of humidity an issue with pollination with this tree? I have an Alano that's going on it's second year in ground and it flowered last year but none turned into fruit. This year has a ton of flowers too and so far looks like none are turning into fruit  :(  The tree had fruit on it when I first bought it (15gal size 7ft+) pulled them off after planting it in ground.

They take a while to establish. Water heavy while they are blooming

If you can net them and wait one more month you'll be rewarded.  they are in their prime in July don't make the mistake of harvesting too early.

A Zillate seedling. Mediocre.

I think Rob is on to something. I've had them from 8 different locations

From Harry
from the Tampa , a graft from Harry
from fruitscapes Bokeelia??
form San Diego Leo Manual's yard, his Maha from thailand
from Gary in Palm Springs,Excalibur tree
my yard La Habra and my mom's yard La Habra, Excalibur, Harry's graft
from Simon's yard in SD

Harry's were the best

I understand that both Excalibur and Zills imported mahachanok from Asia, but that the trees are slightly different.  What are the differences?

The are actually 6. Harry has 3 and Leo Manuel from San Diego has his own from the Thai government
The best I've tasted are Harry's, Leo Manual and Excalibur are next

That is definately an early peach. My Long Beach Peaches should be ready in I'm guessing two weeks.

call crop production services, they have stores in So Cal and they carry this item. you may have to special order it

Thanks for the info, I was totally unaware of Crop Production Services. There are a couple fairly close to me. Do their stores sell retail or only wholesale?

Both
The Anaheim location is for wholesale but the Temecula is for both

Thanks for posting the formulation. It looks like a great product. I wonder if some of the farm ag supply stores in my area might carry it ?  The search starts now 😊

This is an excellent formula. We use it to raise our young grafted anonas. Two years later they'll be 20-25' and very productive and you can purchase Bioflora online or your local horticulture store.

It's a nice place to visit. They have a great palm collection. I saw a Kuka there last year
Indeed, I appreciate the different palms they have there and most are doing fantastic.  When you mentioned Kuka do you mean a Baobab (Adansonia)?  I had to Google that.

 

No P.sargenntii that's the local name in the region

Yep same here. Mine is 6 years old 12-13'  prune heavy last 3 years to manage size and I've had a grand total of 10 fruits. I have one this year. Meanwhile, Alano, Makok and Silas Woods are breaking branches and producing fruits from April to Nov..

I think I going to buy morena base on  bsbullie and JF inputs. Thanks bsbullie and JF !

JF, you seem not to have much luck with haysa since everyone praise about haysa beside alano. Does Anyone have bad luck with haysa like JF. After hearing JF had 10 fruits in 6 years really make me having second thought about buying haysa.

It's not only me do a search you'll read about the issues with Haysa from posters from both coast. Trees grows fast and continually flowers it just doesn't set fruits well
Here is my 12' prune yearly to keep small

freeze killed mine back
(zone 9 New Orleans)  26F - but it came back fine.
Chaya needs to be cooked.
there are several other edible leaves i like better.
Katuk is edible raw, and tastes like peanuts.
baobob actually has one of the best tasting leaves ive had.
and i think its just as healthy, or more, than Chaya.
Tree spinach is rather good also (chenopodium giganteum ?)

I'm sorry that your tree got fried hopefully it will bounce back. I use Chaya almost exclusively with yucateca cuisine so there is no comparison. We use it countless ways in preparing food.

Morena is an excellent large size sap much better than Hasya in production....I've had 10 fruits on my Hasya in 6 years

I've seen people bring these cuttings to CRFG meetings but then people mention toxicity so I didn't get one to grow. I think it's easy to grow.

I know how to handle the toxicity here is a pic of egg & Chaya

How is it growing  ? Anyone have a large specimen ?

23
No roundup around my house. The strange thing is it's only happening to the FP and there are other mango trees next to it.
That's funny my FP looks crappy I wonder if it's some weird pathogen to this variety

24
Can someone tell me what's going on with the leaves on my Fruit Punch mango tree. I have had it in 7 gallon nursery pot for over a year and I plan on stepping it up this weekend.
Some of the new growth looks fine then other leaves are curling and drying up. Out of the ten varieties of mangoes I have this is only happening to the FP mango tree.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.










 

That looks like the new growth that gets fry during Santa Ana's here in SoCal. Do you spray roundup around your trees?
