How often shud this be applied on mango trees?
'

i have also read that zinc can be used as a fungicide?

Thank you for the cheap source information.

Another source is the Hi-Yield brand.

Old Bridge Chemical in New Jersey sells several grades of Zinc sulfate.

It is important to know which compound you are working with:

Zinc sulfate monohydrate (specific gravity around 3.28) is very concentrated;

Zinc sulfate heptahydrate (SG around 1.97) is much less concentrated, because it has 7 molecules of water bound in it instead of 1.

If a recommendation does not specify which Zinc sulfate molecule is being talked about, to be on the safe side, assume that the recommendation is for the heptahydrate.  If what you have is monohydrate and you don't know how to calculate chemical moles, use only about 1/6 of the recommended amount.

I didn't lay hand on a specific recommendation for mangos just now, the recommendation for heptahydrate on cherimoya leaves is 1 gram per liter of water.

You said the zinc monohydrate is concentrated, my question is on how many tbsp of zinc monohydrate do u put on a 5 gallon home depot bucket?

Thanks

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Atemoya on Guanabana Rootstock?
« on: September 02, 2017, 02:40:35 PM »
Yes , but atemoya takes the cold better than guanabana. So grafting it would make it less cold hardy.
But the (guanabana) roots would be underground and shouldn't be affected by air temperature, I would think.  Unless it were well below freezing.

with guanabana u are also prone to root rot....

Please explain how guanabana is prone to root rot?  I was under the impression they were very flood tolerant and this could be the answer for those trying to grow atemoya in flood prone areas?

We have lost 7 soursops(different years) in the Philippines due to flood for 3 days.

Same as  it goes for sugar apples &papayas. These were mature trees that died.

average around 40F coldest but i have a legit micro climate and my soil I make is perfect for maximum growth and health of the plants, One thing people neglect is the soil so having the healthiest soil allows your plants to deal with stresses better.

Wow thank u for the info. We have similar weather on a normal winter.

Thank u for the info

So this is the real inga edulis?

Does every person who eats Red Morning Jackfruit notice the higher acid and sweet tart taste of it, or is this only Brad?

Not sure I would say acid but it has a brighter flavor.  To me, a distinct "berry" flavor and not the dominant juicy fruit flavor found in your everyday yellow fleshed jackfruit.

Rob, which in your opinion has the juicy fruit variety flavor (preferably orange or red-fleshed, chewy)?

Almost any if thebyellownor orange colored flesh jackfruit will have the juicy fruit flavor.  Mai 1 is a good choice with excellent production and low latex.   Mai 3 is a bit better in flavor, more complex, with also low latex but not quite as good of production as Mai 1.  I also recommend J-30 (not J-31) and Bangkok Lemon/Krunchy Lemon  (not to be confused with the inferior Lemon Crunch).

It happens to my lychee. The culprit are the leafhoppers..

They tend to suck out the juice in aide of the new growth.
