Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Growing Mango trees in Southern California
« Last post by hawkfish007 on December 10, 2018, 10:00:04 PM »
Thanks, I read as much as I can during my lunch hour and perhaps skimmed over this information. I will check with some of my local nurseries and post in the trade/sale thread as well, I would rather help a fellow member if there are any selling root stocks locally.

Thanks for taking time to reply.

I picked up 2 Manila seedlings for $35 each last time I was at Mimosa LA. They had quite a few in stock, seedlings were 4-5 high.

Also avoid compost in mango pots.

Depending on how close the two trees are to each other, they would both be pollinated by the same insects.

FLMikey,  the Calcium-Magnesium-Boron product is probably good.  The Bonide product is labeled for avocados, but not mangos.  The sprayer should work for a year or so, until the trees get bigger.

Mango scale.  If the scale is already dead and dried up, it will just flake off.  If it is still alive (or if it is recently dead and not yet dried up), it will smear, or leave a wet spot.

I guess I am closer to the cotton fields but I just bought 2 fifty pound bags for $20 each at
my local feed store? They had to special order it and it took a week to get?

The space heaters inside helped melt heavy snow off tops of covers. My boxier frame with flatter roof held snow but I think the thermo cube for that heater malfunctioned so I went to Tractor Supply today after the roads were cleared and got another one; supposed to get down to 24 degrees tonight.
