Goodluck. I hope it takes & update us

U cud grow almost anything in SoCal.

I have tropical fruit trees growing no problem for 2 years in the ground unprotected & tasted 117 temp highest & 28 temp lowest with no problems. Except killed a few due to root rot.

Probably brewing compost tea, organic fert, mulch & foliar feeding them made a huge difference on plants resistance.

It is possible that Hawaii have a better chance on successfully growing tropical treees due to high humidity, better rainfall & mild cold weather compare to SoCal, but hey they still do grow here no problems.

I live 25 miles away, west of LA. We tend to be hotter & colder than metro LA.

We have a 40+ year old orange neglected and it produces sweet oranges. Once, i started to mulch, use organic fertilizer, drench compost tea & foliar feed the tree. The sizes of the oranges grew 3 to 5x bigger & leaves were bigger than usual --& sweeter orange. (win-win)

That being said Millet is correct the importance of fertilizing a citrus tree & Spaugh is also correct that citrus can grow neglected.

(I am speaking base on my observation of my orange tree) :D

i have 6 foot tall thai wax green jambu unprotected south side...
im located in west side of LA (valley) it didnt mind the heatwaves we had (117 temp & 29 temp winter) -- did not defoliate & is growing strong...

The key is to protect it while newly planted say a year or two & give it appropriate micro-climate.

(i killed one wax jambu before due to root rot r/t improper drainage)

I put my ilama seeds inside the greenhouse during the winter, december & no signs of germination.


I have read that they usually take a long time to sprout.

Is your tree from Florida? It may perform better on a different rootstock. I have a small DOT graft on Lemon Zest interstock with Florida Turpentine as the actual rootstock and it is growing fine. The bloom panicles are susceptible to Powdery Mildew but much less so compared to Lemon Zest. DOT is a top tier Mango in my book!

Simon

How wud u compare dot as oppose to LZ & ST?

Can't view the pic. Do Atkin carry smaller manila mango but not HD small?


Sorry about that, I updated my post with the correct link: https://imgur.com/a/8oy9i


i saw the rot. if its severely rotted. its better to protect it from insects that may house in to the branch. U dont want that or have water stay-still that cud cause further damage.

i advise u to paint ur tree using IV organics paint guard. u want to use something environmentally-friendly to ur trees.

Deer are driving me freaking nuts.  They killed 2 of my trees, destroyed my tomatoes, and every time my citrus trees get a fresh flush of new growth, they eat it all.  They eat my baby avocados, baby mangoes, strawberries, you name it, they destroy it.  You have no idea how destructive these things are, when I try to scare them off, they just look at me and laugh.  They have my land marked as having a lot of food so they pretty much visit me nightly.  Deer hoof prints EVERYWHERE!

In my garden in the rear, I have one of those motion activated sprinklers, and it works well.  Problem is, that is just not practical to do over large areas as you have to have a garden hose to every sprinkler, and it has to be on all the time.  Plus, they ain't cheap.

Once my trees get big enough, they'll be ok, but they are being seriously stunted because the new vegetation gets stripped as soon as a new flush is pushed out.

I have tried scent crap, it's a joke, at least everything I've tried.

Anyone know of something that is PROVEN to work?  Thank you!


This may help u.

This works for me from rodents chewing my mangoes trunk & some other tropical fruit trees.

Protect your investment.

Yessir, against rodents...

I suspect leafhopper/ sharpshooter or brown stink bug that got into this branch.








18
Any idea what this necrotic may be?

I'll take 2 non perforated behl

Hey NewGen, i would clip anything is growing inward or downward. They tend to be upright and weighing down (upright) branches serves you best IMO. You will want the optimum growing area- i.e.;new growth, Chris

I agree. Also to increase your yield. Fertilize your soil. Once you see flowers. Dump potassium sulfate & calcium for brix.

They are one of my favorite fruits. I planted 5 grafted trees and 3 seedlings so far.
My trees were 30F one night this year and didn't blink. They didn't drop fruit either,
but people seem to have more issues in CA. growing them. It seems they like humidity.
If you haven't tried one pay the price.

We had 2 weeks of consistent 30 at night &29 being the coldest... my 2 chicos are thriving despite low humidity we have.

as far as i know buttercream hasnt been released havent heard of taralay.

Buttercream i have since last year. Taralay just got released too.

One of my sources that has access to zill said that by summer OS & 0-15 will get released. warren is correct.

I buy plants from Zills. Either they are doing small special releases to certain customers or your sources are wrong. I was there last month and asked about buttercream they didnt have anything maybe they got new stuff for Feb. but I havent checked.









Also have guava variety looks like sh*t
