Despite keeping it well watered, the small tree got baked in the 105° heat wave.



Two chairs were later put up on either side to put a shade cover over it.

I just heard on the radio that there is another heatwave expected next week.

Simon

Wednesday 7/25 will be the hottest, but temps won't go higher than 105F for those in Los Angeles area zones 10a and 10b.
So it's definitely not as bad as 7/06 for most.

Indian mango season has already ended for the local Indian supermarkets around my area.

My Lemon Zest on Florida Turpentine rootstock is holding fruit and begging out and suffered no damage on its leaves or Fruit. A few recent grafts on this same tree has fried to a crisp but grafts that were put on several weeks before the heatwave actually pushed out vigorously.

I have a small double rootstock Sweet Tart tree that was holding three Fruit and all three Fruit cracked in half but there was no damage to the tree or leaves. All three Fruit are still hanging and I can see that there is no embryo in these three Fruit. I have noticed that the Fruit with atrophied seeds/embryos are more easily damaged.

The heatwave damaged my recently grafted scions the most.

Seedling trees that are not grafted are pushing vigorously.
