Snapped my Coconut cream mango like a toothpick. Second time this has happened to me with CC. Going to have to plant another variety. Also toppled over my 12 ft Achachairu.

Contact Jack he goes by the name Coconut here. He has them that's where I got mine from.

How much edible flesh do you get from one fruit? Do they have one seed inside or two? Also I know it's an off comparison but would one fruit give you more edible flesh to eat than let's say a lychee? Thank you for the report!

When I purchased it it was about 12 inches tall I would say 1 1/2 to two years old but that's just a guess. At the time Montoso sold two sizes I got the larger size.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Achachairu Progression
« on: December 18, 2016, 02:12:15 PM »
Just took a picture of my Achachairu today. It was purchased in 2012 from Montoso Gardens. It has really taken off lately. I'm still waiting for it to fruit for the first time. I'm hoping 2017 is the year. It's over 12 ft tall now and the trunk is about as thick as a sofa can. If anyone has any pics of their Achachairu I'd love to see them.

I have about 15 3 year old trees in one gallon pots that have to be repotted into 3 gallon pots that I can sell if anyone is interested. Some of them are like 2 feet tall already.

Mine does not get irrigation. All it gets is rain water and occasionally if there is a drought hose water.

I'm in Miami and my Angie's look nothing like yours. My tree gives me beautiful clean fruit with a pink/red shoulder, the flesh is sweet silky smooth no fiber and a slight papaya undertone/aftertaste. The first year my tree fruited it did not wow me but this year they were great. As I said earlier it does have a resinous taste near the skin and the stem. This is more prominent if eaten too underripe. I am not very fond of the resinous taste but the key to it is to cut the skin away before eating or slicing and it is completely gone.

Last Year my Angie's were nothing spectacular. This year I have truly enjoyed them and do consider them top tier. One thing I am doing this year is peeling the skin then cutting out the pieces. The skin can have a resinous taste similar to Carrie. If you don't like this, peel the skin before eating. That's how ineat them now and love them. My tree had over 70 this year.

Thanks Guys! Here is a pic from today. Are they ready to eat as soon as they turn purple?

Yes Jack I got mine from Montoso Gardens in 2012 as the larger size they sell. I let it grow in a pot in partial shade until a little over waist high then put it in the ground. They love lots of water. In the pots I would try to always have the soil moist and would give them osmocote slow release fertilizer. Haven't started peeing on them yet lol.

Here is a pic of mine. It's pushing 8ft tall. I was hoping to get some fruit by next year.

Nice! I've never meet Rob but look forward to reading his advice on the forum he has a wealth of knowledge. What is the scoop on the red lime, taste, productivity, size etc? Thanks!

Yes I'm in zone 10. This spot gets very little sun now in the winter but a good amount in the summer.

Thanks for all the help guys. So optimally wish I had a bigger yard but my back yard is out of space and wife wasn't letting me touch the front yard until now lol. So I planted the Jabo which I have had for about 3 years now in a pot (got it from you Jeff). I ended up planting it where I was asking about 4ft from the house north facing between two windows smack center of the house. I plan it on being an ornamental mainly (what I told wife)and of course hoping for some fruit. This area does get some sun throughout the summer but not much now as the sun sits further to the south this time of year. And I am also planning on keeping it nicely pruned they are truly beautiful trees. I will try to get a picture up tomorrow.

How invasive are the roots of a Jabo. I am planing on planting one close to my house in between two windows and about 4 feet from my wall will this be ok? I'm trying to redo my landscape and Jaboticabas are so ornamental I want to include it in my plans. Thanks!
