Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Don't throw away those passionfruit leaves!
« Last post by Guanabanus on February 24, 2018, 09:14:24 AM »
I grew up in northern Brazil, where we occasionally drank Avocado-leaf tea, which was delicious, with a licorice-type flavor.  Some times we made it together with Lemon Grass.

But the two or three times I tried to make Avocado-leaf tea here in Florida, it was nasty. Different varieties, I guess.  Also I have read that Avocado leaves here in Florida are considered toxic--- which they sure tasted like.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Digging up a mango tree

Ya can't argue with success, way to go!

See the Haden I transplanted last year. Your tree is a baby compared to this one. We hacked every leafing branch off and dug a good root ball. Transplanted it and every other day for the first 30 days I drained a 55 gallon drum of water mixed with Super Thrive onto the base of the tree. The two photos show the treeís recovery not even 10 months later. Didnít show one sign of stress at any point. IMO mango trees are amongst the easiest trees to transplant. For me, Mamey is the most difficult

Florida or Hawaii cultivars would work for you. The question only is "how do you get them?" According to Luc everything there in Pto. Vallarta are seedlings.
Hi Oscar! Luc is right here there's only seedlings, I already secured a couple one is with a beautiful elegant long pear shape and ok flavor, and another very good oily flesh with a combination of green /black skin when ripe, this one falls from the tree when is time and doesn't bruises at all, about how to get the scions I'm trading with some forum members,
Do the scions get there fresh enough to take?
When I received them in just a few days yes...

Hey Raul. Oro Negro is growing nicely for me here South of Miami. I don't do much for it. Barely any mulch. Rarely fertilize, and it has grown thick bushy and green. Hoping for fruits this year. I can send some scions if you like.

Raul, a Hawaiian variety that has grown well for me but not fruited yet is Malama one of taste test winners in Hawaii. Also has taken cold this year 30F for a week now and still looks great with just over head frost cloth! Looks like it's going to flower this year too! 8)
Hi Scott, Malama sounds like a winner, thanks for the suggestion il try to get some scions
