I'll ask him, anyone remember his user NAME? Coconut... Something else

How about Harry Houseman with the 100+ mango trees who lives in Broward?  I remember Coconut going on about the dwarf coconut palm trees he was selling for $5,000 each to landscapers building new houses for the wealthy. Fully grown and fruiting for sure.

And I thought he was joking when he said, he own a white Lambo.

For those with ripe mangoes...is flavor washed out with all the rain in May in south Florida?

I would love to meet Coconut.  He sounds like a character for sure and his posts were one of a kind!

Seems like he was/is pretty well connected and one of those people well versed in many aspects of life.  Has anyone ever met him before?

I have recently received budwood of this cross and grafted it on Poncirus. This is actually only my second succesful graft.
However, I can find very little information on it and would be grateful if anyone could share what they know.





cheers

Mark, thatís an insanely huge root mass for a potted Mango in Texas, especially considering how young the tree was. Good luck with the grafting, I canít wait to see what type of Frankenstein tree you come up with next.

Yep, at least 2" roots on stock that was about 2 years old.

There is a huge misconception on how I grow or what I'm doing.  Everyone seems to think I'm growing in pots.  The pot is actually a raised bed that gives me a jump no one in native soil can match and then some.  It's bottomless  which means that not only do the roots root into native soil but those roots benefit from the water and salts that work there way down from the encapsulated food located at the very top.  It's strictly a win-win situation.

I focus on roots.  Rest of it comes in due time.

I guess I was just lucky at time or two with LA and got a reasonable agent.  I agree that Miami seems to be the worst but I'd nominate HNL for close second.  The last helpful agent I encountered there was Merren.  Since then, they all seem to have some confrontational tone going on.  Oh well, sorry to have highjacked  this topic for so long.

Finally got first 2018 mango. It is a Carrie and it dropped off.....was not picked.  Nothing else seems ripe or near ripe on this tree but it always surprises me with dropped fruits I do not see/find to pick first.
