Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: How to get rid of peach tree leaf spot?

It is putting on new leaves now, but once they reach full size they start getting the spots on them.

It depends what your goal is? Do you want the fastest growing- Kohala, probably the most consistent fruited as well. Without knowing your growing conditions or goals, I would suggest Biew Kiew because it grows well here and has excellent fruit.

Same for Lychees. You should really try out as many varieties as possible to see which one you like best. You can try visiting the nurseries when the Fruit is in season to sample the Fruit. Mauritius and Brewster are productive here but a friend has a Kaimana that is fairly productive as well. Emperor is also a great Fruit and the tree stays small but itís root system can be sensitive here in Socal. Sweetheart and Fake Hak Ip are good tasting fruit but they can have some tannin taste if you are the type to break the skin with your teeth.

 All the varieties have tannin in their skin but some are more noticeable than others. Sweet Cliff is very productive as well with a smaller size Fruit, some people love it but itís not one of my favorites because the Rose scent and flavor that I associate with a good Lychee is lacking in this variety.

Ohia is also a good tasting variety but I donít know how well it grows here. Groff sucks from the few Fruit Iíve eaten. No Mai Tsze is by far the best tasting variety Iíve ever eaten. I donít believe Iíve ever eaten a true NMT/NMC here in the USA.

I have been reading that lychees are not consistently productive here at all... People manage to get a few fruits here and there, but with little consistency. I would love to have a lychee tree over a longan, but I would rather have consistency over a pain in the butt. What do you think?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Mango Bud Grafting T-Bud Graft Method
« Last post by simon_grow on Today at 03:50:27 PM »
Thanks for the information Mark! I was wondering if there is a specific brand that lebmung uses because I want to induce the bud to push and not grow roots. When I was doing plant research, I used to make my own agarose plates with different concentrations of hormones and the ratios of the hormones would determine if I would induce roots or shoots.

I have some mango bud grafts that are over a month old and they are still green and look like they are about to push. If they donít dry out in this heatwave, Iím hopeful they will push shortly.

If the tree has the adequate amount of nutrients it will start to flush new leaves.
Those leaves will be green, hopefully the tree will have a growth spurt this year.
You have 2-3 months left. I would use the miracle grow also.  I don't think you can
over fertilize a peach tree. With the rainy season upon us one good rain and the
fertilizer is gone. Maybe do the granular one week and the root drench the next.

Look very similar. We got cutting from friends and family.
So we don't know V.

We are copying you all to water DF everyday. Many fruits this year than previous years.

Thanks Fang.

Guy with his office across from mine used to cook it regularly. He says its ok, but hasn't really missed it since he moved here. Good enough for me. I love the color, but i guess it doesn't really show without cold winters.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Selling: Red jaboticaba seeds
« Last post by skhan on Today at 03:29:52 PM »
I've been receiving some query for higher quantities, unfortunately, I only have one fruiting tree so I'm really only getting around 50 fruits per fruiting cycle.
Only offering 30 seeds per order as to fairly spread them around.
Thanks for understanding.
