Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Rain = Washed Out Mango Flavor?

Same here..... kinda sucks

JF, what are the "problems" with Honey Kiss, Pickering & "other" Zills mangos?

3
I have not personally tried the Angie mango, but I have a Carrie mango tree for like 6 years, and i have always found it to be consistant, wonderful mango. We do not suffer the fungus issues of Florida though.  Have also never had issue with the sappy resinous taste, but i always wash my mangoes before i eat them so maybe that is why. Carrie mango is exceptionally juicy, and has a wonderful spicy undertone that is completely missing from your common commercial varities


I think that "spicy" undertone might be cat urine

Jose, Don't sleep on the Honey Kiss! as late as they get and when picked and eaten at the right time they are as good as any! Compact growth habit and bears more fruit then you can handle!

And is not only better tasting than Keitt but does not contain the problems Keitt can have or be susceptible to.

Maybe he should just plant 6-7 Carrie trees...

Rob, I didn't know you were parting with your prized collection of Carrie trees....

Where are you getting clothing with SPF ratings?

Costco has SPF rated hats for about $15 here in Florida.  Columbia Wear has SPF rated shirts, which can be mail ordered.

Most "big" sporting goods stores have SPF rated shirts, some have light weight pants.


Mark, TJ Max & Ross have them cheap i have sun shirts spf 50 that i have gotten at both places for under 10 bucks

Could you tell more about the hats you found? Style? Where you got them? I'm looking for something to wear for an upcoming vacation.

I recently bought another Adam's Headwear Extreme Condition Hat - UPF 45+  on Amazon.




Same hat I have!.... love it

I have a Adams extreme outdoor hat with neck protector what a great hat ... like 20 bucks on Amazon! And the sun protection does not wear off it's the fabric that creates the spf protection. I have shirts that I have had for 10 years and still wear them and they still protect me.... i had more cancer cut out of my skin then I care to remember

Are you guys kidding me? You don't know what sweet , tart , sour , piney , bitter sour ect ect do you not have taste buds?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Miracle fruit tree - still alive?
« on: April 30, 2017, 06:53:38 PM »
 It would be a miracle if it survived

16
Yep. I got one fruit that is currently about an inch and a half long and fattening up.

Mine flowered a second time. Out of about 30 - 40 flowers, only 3 or 4 were female. And out of those, one seems to be holding and growing.

Any update on the tree? Hopefully it manage to bear fruit

OK Jeff, you're going to split that one tiny fruit with all your south florida friends correct? we will all come over and get a nibble lmao

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Blue grape tree
« on: April 16, 2017, 09:32:00 AM »
Nearly as good. Only drawback is large seed. Allow fruit to turn completely black before harvesting for best flavor.

Thanks jeff! Fruit quality? As good as jabo?

I would say flesh is a little "meatier" in the Vexator but flavor is nice for a jabo.  The tree and fruit have a powdery bloom on them.  I think if I had to choose, Red Hybrid is better.


Rob, I also have red just not flowering yet! I guess I have another year to wait or the red
