Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: First sprout of Raulís Ilama seeds

Awesome.  Mine are hopeless.  First, one sprouted, but then it died out.


I am curious if there's a nursery in Southern California that sells ilama in a 3-7 gal pot.

Too much GA or water will easily kill Ilama seedling.

I killed about 10 seedlings before i got it right.  ::)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Selecting dooryard mango

So far my small yard has a Carrie-4years old and wonderful, a coconut  creme -one year old, a NMD one year old and a Pickering one year old. There is room for one more small variety and would like suggestions? Considering Cogshall?

Dwarf Hawaiian for  early season (great, Julie-like flavor, produces well but need to spray copper), Pickering (mid-season, produces well) and Honey Kiss (late season, productive and good taste). Personally, all three have better flavor than Cogshall, which also has issues  with jelly seed.

What are you looking to add more to your season? (Early, Middle, or late?) What type flavor are you looking for? (Classic? Spicy? Sweet? Juicy? Peachy? Citrusy? Complex? Etc..) How far away from the coast do you live? (The further inland, the more disease & other pressures affect your trees & more disease resistant varieties will be more recommended.)
I recommend watching TrulyTropicals videos on choosing a mango tree. (Their are 4-5 if Iím not mistaken, 3 for sure lol)

...  Carrie here ripens in Mid-July/Early August. ...
How about putting up a sign that says: "NOTICE - This fruit is not ripe until September/October. Don't waste your time harvesting until then."

Then in August, harvest your fruit and take down the sign.

Of course, if the idiots can't read, it would still be pointless.
