Does anyone know what kind of morus nigra variety does dave wilson nursery has?

I didnt like the taste no sweetnes detected but sour... its been in the ground for almost a year --this tree grows pretty quick....

was wondering if it has something to do with the maturity?

im looking to pug it & graft it to a better variety....

is it possible say for instance graft a persian to a morus nigra(dwarf)?

I believe they have persian and black beauty.

the taste should be close to a blackberry, at what color are you picking them?

It's hard to say. The typically grafting season is around June for us in CA. If the graft failed it should turn black/brown...

Wow with all the CRFG scion exchanges in Jan/Feb, I thought early spring is the prime grafting season with a few exceptions (say citrus). What do you typically graft in June?

I was referring to mango only, which is an exception like citrus. However, I think a few forum members have had success in the colder months in grafting mangos

It's hard to say. The typically grafting season is around June for us in CA. If the graft failed it should turn black/brown in a few weeks. The graft won't heal completely for a few months. Also do you have anything other that parafilm holding the graft union together?

Nice write up Simon! Looks like quite a few fruit!

I don't recognize most of the cherimoya varities, and they mostly a collection of Ashok's seedlings?


Gary is also just a nice guy. Knows his stuff, especially when it comes to soil. I buy odds and ends from him though his selection is not necessarily for crazy zone pushers. He stocks mostly plants he knows will thrive in the orange county area. Good selection of those. Nice source of figs too.

I agree, Gary is the man.

Few days ago Donald Trump tweeted out that Orange Essence is his new favorite mango. That he almost felt it was named after him/ He had his groundsman plant three OE trees at his Mar Al Lago estate in Palm Beach.

lol wat...

Will do Simon.

As always I'm jealous of your collection Frank!

Fyliu: the said that the event was still a go as of now so hopefully it stays that way. There was a good amount of people, probably around 40 or so around 10:30 when I arrived and there were more trickling in. I didn't stay long, just tasted the 14 or so varieties and left. Persimmons, especially the crunchy ones which they were sampling all tend to taste the same but I'm glad I went

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: NeelKiran Mango
« on: September 12, 2016, 10:01:58 PM »
A friend from this forum sent me a small NeelKiran Mango and I thought it was delicious. NeelKiran is the cross between an Alphonso and a Neelam. It had much firmer flesh than both Neelam and Alphonso and it had a Brix of 20%. It has more of an Alphonso influence for its flavor with a nice Indian resin flavor. I cut one side of the fruit and noticed that it did not have any spongy tissue but then I cut the other half and there was minor spongy tissue. I like NeelKiran a lot more than Alphonso but I still prefer Kesar more than any other Indian Mango(Indian resin flavor).


I'm surprised it has spongy tissue, given that all websites describing it indicate it is spongy tissue free, must be a case of misleading release hype. Thanks for the review!

Fun! I've never really payed attention to either Edward or Cogshall, but i see 14 pages of posts on each. Edward seems to be more consistently praised than Cogshall.

That's a sweet tart not st. Maui. Confusing but ST generally means sweet tart on this forum

Aloha is descendant from White Piri I believe, sounds like a winner though!

Sounds about right. I think the hot, hot, day temps aren't as important as many think. At the very least 83F means it can grown far outside of the steamy summers most of the continental USA has. So,I would make it a recommended try in nor cal. My seedling has taken to the ground fast. Aultalfo when you fertilize it? develops a very dark green glossy leaf. I don't notice that on Baileys or Manila.
Its going to have to grow more for me to see if its more ornamental in the landscape as well as delicious.

what article are you referring too?

Gary was tidy?  All the Gary I have had this year were its usual off the chart.

LZs picked properly have been excellent.  The Pineapple Pleasure have been sweeter this year, more overpowering tbe acidic component.

Tidy is perhaps local vernacular to say all is in place. Which for Gary, is great.  Mine were a bit scabby but otherwise ok.  85% of their prime in taste.

Our loss with the lack of blogging 😃 how did j-12 compare to the heavyweights?

Few consistent tasting mangoes this year.  PPK was the most on its usual mark. Most LZ were subprime but the good were great.  CC was great.  Mario a pleasant surprise.  Gary was tidy.  Juliette was another pleasant surprise.  Guava was delicious. Edward seemed better than ever. Graham was delectable. Dupuis was not its usual self but still good.

1. PPK
2. Lemon zest
3. Coconut cream
4. Mario
5. Gary
6. Juliette
7. Guava
8. Edward
9. Graham
10. Dupuis

Honourble mention
Nam doc Mai
Maha Chanok

Good List! Where is Future's mango feast this year?!

Just looked and Florigon appears to be poly, but it appears yours did not grow true thus you still have a unique variety on your hands

Since that is not a Florigon,  you cznt make any parallel conclusions and comparisons to Florigon.   In addition,  you are not in a mango growing region, specifically Florida,  where its an early season mango.

So you are saying it could be a Florigon seedling ?

Im just trying to figure out what it is.

It could be, but if it was Florigon, they do not grow true to seed as they are mono (I believe). Thus, you have your own unique variety that is entirely new with all new taste, growth habit, etc.
