True Indian mangoes are round and small. I have seen and eaten a lot of them in the Philippines. They are good when eaten green.

There are many indian/ pakkstan mango varieties.
And the ndian mangoes they call in the Philippines is actually Katchamita variety.

To this date, it os unclear where katchamita came from. There are rumors that the seedling came from india. Hence, getting the indian name.

If u want real Indian varieties get it from India/ Paki or someone thats legit.

So far a major Florida propagator sends fake indian varieties? Hmmm

From what I gather from friends, a similar mystery exists for Florida's Son Pari and Langra Benarsi too.

Langra Benarasi for sure. However Sonpari appears to be the right one from photos from India.

My source who is at the heart of Sonpari Growing region, a good friend of mine who has mango orchards confirmed looking at fruit picture and pictures of Florida sonpari leaves to be vastly different than what he grows in India in Gujrat. He will send us closeup pics of fruit and leaves in Summer for us to see. what he described was that majority of leaves tend to bend in the middle of vein.

Below is a pic of the Son Pari grafted by Zills.



this was ID as fake and not sonpari by the grower in  India. yikes!

i wonder if the fake son pari is good?

so if this son pari is fake, what is the real variety  of this fake one?

There may be many faked name varieties from florida such as these or possible mislabelling.

Here is a comparison.

i really loved caimito in the PH especially the purple ones..

We usually consume them fresh from tree when they are soft to touch or deep purple color.

There is a huge difference on taste on tree-riped vs counter-riped.

Mimosa Nursery in East LA carried it.

20 gallons are available same as 5 gallons.

6
Painting the trunk with tar or glue or vaseline or Tanglefoot, et cetera, kills the bark and cambium layer.  Then the roots starve.  Then the top of the tree dies too.

To make a barrier against ants, etc., you must first wrap the trunk with some protective wrap that will not allow any of the above products to touch the trunk.

So how do u brush out the pruning sealer besides removing with a knife? Any solutions  to remove?

What r ur thoughts?

I use 100% clay dirt on mangoes.. i get no problems for the oast 2 years...


I know you're being facetious but I noticed the amateur nursery guy I buy my mango seedlings from has his in 3 gallon containers full of mostly sand and very little organic matter. They are big and beautiful. So as an experiment last February I put 20 12"-18" Guamuchil seedlings in pots full of 3/4 sand/dirt from my front yard and 1/4 steer manure. Then ran a stingy drip system along all of them. At the same time I put 10 in in a mixture of 1/2 Miracle Grow, 1/2 Patio Plus potting soil mix, that I hand water as needed. To date all the seedlings in in the dirt mix are 5-7' tall and still full of red tips growing like crazy. The ones in the potting soil mix are green and beautiful but only around 3 feet tall, and they have stopped growing in the cold. They are half the size of the ones in the dirt mix. They only thing I have added to the ones in dirt is citrus fertilizer every couple of months. They are also covered in grass and have castor bean plants growing above them blocking out a lot of the sun. Confused...

No reason to be facetious. All nutrients are already in the dirt. U just need to reintroduce the beneficial microbial network to loosen up the dirt &  also break down the nutrients for the plantsts uptake... & yes, i do use filtered water to drench my trees.

If u  go back to  previous timelines, there is no such thing as best potting mix but dirt.  Happy gardening. ;)

Bigger & better tasting according to Adam.

Contact adam aka FlyingFoxFruits, he has a superior version of lemon drop.

That is bacupari (garcinia brasiliensis). Not lemon drop (garcinia intermedia).


U are absolutely correct. Though,.the OP may consider superior version of lemon drop by Adam.
