The only thing I can hope for is that it is more productive in Miami than in other areas like Broward and SWFL, since the major nurseries and growers here I have asked about it have not heard about it being unproductive.  The fruit is truly the best compared to Alano and Morena so I'm willing to plant it and see what happens.  Right now I'm not planning on planting other Sapodillas.

I am not sure I would say its better than.Morena.  I would actually give Morena the edge, and Excalibur as being better, too.

Some should reach out to an Admin to get this fixed...

The tree is about 10 feet +, pretty upright in its habit. Not too bushy.

Normal seedling growth habit.   You may want to top it.

As to variety,  if YOU like it, that is most important.  Based on where the fruit came from, its a good chance it was a random seedling. The "juicyfruit" flavor is just a classic jackfruit flavor.  Better selections will be more complex and/or with a different profile and no latex.

People need to be clear, are you having issues getting to the site directly through your browser (by typing tropicalfruitforum.com or through same saved as a bookmark/favorite) or just through Google topic searches?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: 2021 Mango Season (Florida)
« on: January 20, 2021, 09:57:40 AM »
I finally have enough other mango trees bearing that it is worth a roll of the dice to get off season fruit. Hoping I can sync both Mahas to bear off season every year.

How did the off season compare to summer fruit?  I would think the cooler temps would have had a negative effect but less rain a benefit...

My son ate our first mango of the year today, Jan 19 . It was a tiny Maha Chanok about 3 inches long. I was expecting it to be a seedless fruit since it was so small, but it had a seed... I plan on de-fruiting my other Maha tree until Summer.  It is just starting to push bloom buds now.  Hoping for an off season crop late this year or early next from a late Summer/early Fall bloom.

Rolling the dice, huh?

11
No, remove all fruit.  let the grafts heal without the undue stress and risking breakage.

12
Looks like B3,B3 is better than  wai chi! As for the Florida Sweetheart same as the FZS or the Florida Hak Ip which is FSZ.

Are you saying the Sweetheart is a variant of FZS?

13
If I can see a pic I will know straight away. FZS has more than one selection btw.

Sweetheart on bottom, Florida Hak Ip on top.



14
Can't see the pics but it is probably FZS. Sweetheart is not a variety outside USA.

Thats what I thought (at least under the name Sweetheart)...now, the ironic thing is that the original tree that was eventually named Sweetheart was supposed to have been an "unknown" variety brought in from Australia to the United States.

The fruit look off in size and shape and that seed looks a bit large for a Sweetheart (they have chicken tongue seeds).  Dont know that Sweethearts are grown in Australia and imported into the US (dont even know if they are even grown commercially or at all in Australia).

It is my earliest avocado to flower and harvest in zone 10b/11 SWFL. Ripening in July, doesn't hold on the tree, they drop off when ripe. Small fruit, eat the skin it is about as thick as eggplant. Mine have buds pushing a little.

Eating cooked eggplant skin is like eating plastic.  Cant see eating avocado skin...

I havent used fertilizer on any if my jabos yet. Is it possible I'm watering too much?

Are you keeping them inside or outside  (from the picture it looks like its indoors)?

Why do you keep making new threads for this request.   Best to just revive you older threads.

Try air layering. That is how Echo propagated them.

I have very poor rate with air layers.  Cuttings usually do well.

How's anthracnose for you guys?  It won't quit on large Kent.  Quick copper spray again shortly.
Small Pickering, Fruit cocktail, Maha Chanok's clean.

Kent is a mess, disease-wise.

No issues in Wellington.  I do have good open airflow around my trees.

I don't think it was a chill issue with the ones we grew. They flowered fine, they just didn't set fruit. That leads me to believe it is either a pollination issue (it was my understanding that only specific varieties are self fertile) or a fruit development issue at higher temps (similar to what Cherimoya has here).

I have heard of some needing cross pollination.

I lived in Gainesville for many years and they fruited there.  Haven't seen them down here in South Florida.
