Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Some more mangoes from Tropical Acres
« on: June 21, 2018, 10:14:00 PM »

Nice haul. Thanks for mentioning

If I love the flavor of Carrie but am not crazy about the softer texture, is there a mango with a similar flavor profile but with a firmer/more toothsome texture?


Is the spanish lime graft for sale as well?

Yes Sure , though Iíve never harvested budwood from it.

Thanks to everyone who has ordered and for your patience, glad to hear people are having a lot of success

Are the problems really that bad?


The Keitt/Gary and Kent/Gary crosses from Gary Zillís project offer the most promise as far as late-season stuff is concerned. These will continue to be evaluated over the next few years.

The problem the established late season cultivars have is theyíre mostly purely descended from Haden and/or Brooks, and lack Julie or Saigon genes that appear to afford some level of resistance.

What varieties do you recommend for South Florida?  I have Oro Negro and Simmonds, which are both good.  Oro Negro is a little more flavorful.  I also have a Wurtz tree, which has 5 avocados this year for the first time.  Additionally I've eaten Choquette and Lula, which are both good, Lula being the more flavorful.

You have some good ones now which I spoke about (Lula, choquette, Simmonds ), hopefully youíve had better luck with Oro Negro than many others.

A few other varieties I discussed were Brogden, Day, Catalina, Monroe, bacon and the hass derivatives.

When are you going to start shipping avocados? I need a source in Florida that ships and has a good choice of varieties.

The avocados havenít been prolific enough to ship much (certainly werenít last year, did ship some in 2016). Weíll see how much we have available this year. I donít typically advertise them for sale.

Alex, the middle fruit in the middle picture does have a fissure that looks more characteristic of MBBS.

I see what youíre referring to now but itís difficult to view in the photograph. Maybe OP can take more pics.

As best I can tell over the last few years Rosigold doesnt seem too prone to MBBS.

Not bacterial spot, just anthracnose.

Pina Colada is incredible and definitely worth it.

I think thereís a couple left on Ah Ping. Turned out the tree is quite prone to MBBS. Majority of the fruit rotted.

Thanks for the feedback.

Very dwarf tree. Only had one and had a mild flavor.

Yes, thatís Torbert.

Might be Torbert 

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys I really appreciate it.

Is M4 better than Coconut Cream?

Yes. Coconut cream is inconsistent and goes overripe relatively quickly.

Vigorous , dense, spreading canopy. Smallish, round, Delicious fruit with similar flavor to Edward.

Thanks a lot guys for the comments and for coming out to the meeting, great talking to everyone and a very engaged and Mango-passionate group for sure.

I need to talk to the Miami people about what they want to hear but that one may be more horticultural stuff vs varieties. Weíll see what theyíre interested in.

Ate an Alphonso when I got home last night and it was delicious.

Bump for tonight. Bringing some mangos because apparently Park doesnít  have any ready yet

Dwarf Hawaiian, Sunrise and Ah Ping are a couple that  have been resistant to washout so far.

For all us mango munchers in Broward. Is this going to be close to the same topic?
July 9th: Alex Salizar, Tropical Acre Farms, toic: Mangos

Similar but i personalize each talk to the organization Iím speaking to. Redland wanted to hear about new varieties so there wonít be much horticultural care stuff.

For anyone interested Iíll be giving a talk about mangos to the Redland Tropical fruit club at the Fruit and Spice Park Wednesday evening the 30th around 7pm. Attendance is free.

Will be discussing the current season with an emphasis on new varieties.
