I think you'll be happy with a manilita, it's a really nice tree. I don't think the peanut adds much nitrogen - it sometimes looks yellow itself and the areas under the citrus tree are noticeably greener after I fertilize it. It does help to suck up extra water from irrigation though, the mangos don't need it, but all the other plants do. the mangos get one fertilizer application after harvest. I use Lukas nursery's 4in1 - they formulated for the local soil here and it works great. That's the only nitrogen they get. I also do iron drenches in late summer and a couple foliage sprays a year to provide additional minors.

Dynamite organic (OMRI) time release has 10% nitrogen. Another water soluble organic (OMRI) brand called "Whitney Farms" also has a 10% nitrogen and the "5-1-3" ratios that are currently recommended. I think "IV Organics" also just released a high nitrogen organic fertilizer.

 Although I hate Miracle Grow, they also have an OMRI listed water soluble organic under the Natures Care line that has 10% nitrogen with the correct ratios very similiar to the Whitney Farms product.

Our mango tree was pruned a few weeks ago.

Some of the wounds are still dripping sap, have flies, possible bite marks, and discolourations.

Is there some treatment that would help?

Hi, it is from the South of Brazil and took -5 C without problems at Misiones, it should be just like Eugenia involucrata; it can fruit at the amazon too.

I sent 3 packages and will be sending MANY more from wednesday 24 Oct

Better photos of the orange Eugenia sp.

What temps does this tree handle?

I think you are in the right place. Its clear you are new and hope we haven't confused you. All of us struggle getting started and have success and some failures. I hope your planter box grows well for you. Remember that most failures of containerized gardens stem from overwatering you need to check down into the soil and keep it moist but not sopping wet, hope it has some drainage to avoid that. Try some simple things if winter melons grew well before and you like them try that. Some beans, cucumbers, etc are cheap and easy things to start with. Good luck!

Empoweredandalone wrote.... "Lots of organic fertilizers now come with higher nitrogen that citrus needs".  What organic fertilizer has high nitrogen levels?  I've never seen one.

Citrus generally absorbs nutrients in a 5-1-3 ratio, meaning for every 5 parts nitrogen the tree also takes up 1 part phosphorous and 3 parts potassium.
