Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Any Info on Cotton Candy Mango?

Mine is growing well, has big broad leaves, bought as 3 gallon tree, but tree is from florida (mostly on turpentine root stock), so remains to be seen how it does here in SoCal in future.

Hexane is no joke.  I would avoid it for a cosmetic product.

What's the humidity in your area? If it's really high, you may not need to cover the graft as much.
2 pm reading.. is 66% humidity 84f 29c.
Can definitely get more humid on rainier days.

So I cut open some of the grafting tape to let the air exchange.

Pinkerton is not a fast grower here in CA.  You can probably just shape it.  I wouldnt pug any avovado trees.  Maybe top it when its 8 or 10 feet tall and then shape the sides how you want.

So after 2 days I am seeing water drops inside the grafting tape. It has been 4 days now. This is worrying me of course. Any thoughts on the cause and the risks? These are outdoor Some covered with bags some not, both have droplets. 12 mango grafts in total, 2 are already pushin growth. Suggestions for actions to take?   
Ecuador, mixed rainy sunny days, temps are avg 21 degrees C lows are maybe 16-17. Highs are mid to upper 20s. Y foto..

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: feijoa
« Last post by PahoaJo on Today at 02:29:21 PM »
hey pahoa joe,  where does your friend live?  i'm over in kona side but up kaloko at 1700 ft elevation  gets to about 55 degrees here at the coldest.   i'm quite interested in growing feijoa.  always wondered if it would work.

She lives in Captain Cook.  Maybe 2000 ft elevation or a little less.  Big fruits too. They are so good.  It was this time last year that I got them, so they should be in season now.  I planted some seeds from the fruit I got from her. I doubt they will fruit in Pahoa, but they are growing well.

I had the Katuk fruit a few time.
The inside part, sort of clinging to the seeds is sweet.
It kind of opens up more and and begins to drop the seeds.
Thats when i eat it.

Nothing special...mildy sweet.
Still a nice little treat when walking the yard.

All my plants came from one cutting so I don't think cross pollination is necessary.

thanks, i will wait a bit longer before trying the fruit next time.

ive talked to several people , none seem to have gotten fruit.
maybe it just needs a long summer and rich soil or something ?
good to know anyway...
