good work there! Valley is optimum like Palm Springs with not much risk of PM and dry heat. I can bet your LZ's would be excellent too.

My only problem is antrancnose during the winter, i lost a few mango trees even with manila rootstocks.


 my readings on a small LZ fruit hit 28.3 .

Turpentine work in most cases varieties in SoCal. Several varieties do not do well here like:
Guava
Cotton candy
Ice cream
Carrie
and some others but you can always try those varieties on Manila type rootstocks. Here is cotton candy on Manila.


All u mentioned on turpentines died on me 2 carrie, 2 guava, 1 cotton candy, 1 ice cream.

If im not mistaken Parson is Frank's seedling from Juliette not Julie.

Your absolutely correct Gonz my mango from a Juliette seedling and it’s not being propagated for now

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Maluma : New avocado variety
« on: August 21, 2019, 10:52:41 PM »
I was at an Agricultural expo today,   and one of the speakers from Peru ,  gave a presentation,   one of the varieties they are planting commercially now, is the Maluma.

It seems someone patented this variety,  for commercial use,  ( was told it was US$1.50 per tree )   this is what I know,  it is much larger than the Hass,  has thicker skin,  very productive,  but most important,  it grows well in low lands,  they planted their trees in the desert,  in what is basically sand.  ( fertigation ).   

his presentation was more focused on quality control and certifying all parts of the production and planting process.  but highly recommended this variety.   he also mentioned it has some salt tolerance and could handle alkaline soils. 

I recorded the presentation and will have it up sometime in the next week or so. 

So just wondering if anyone experimented with this in Florida.

Is this the variety they are selling in Costco imported from Peru aka Peruvian hass?

Hello Frank, thanks for the long scion lists. I been waiting for you to post your list so I can buy it from you and not anyone else from here who purchased from you and then grow the tree for a year and come up selling scions here to try compete with you for some dime. I feel the credit should have been for you since you came up with the variety on here first so if I were to buy from here, I would only purchase from you.

Frank is California Annona King.

Yeah, it could be the different climate or location. Let us know how it tastes. Piña Colada is an excellent mango!

Simon

I will be bringing them on Frank's mango tasting.

Hi Simon, thanks for pointing it out.
I have not tasted the fruit yet from this tree & the pina coladas that i have came directly from ZHPP thru a friend.

Its possible environmental differences  altered the fruit a bit. I am confident as this is a Pina Colada as verified from Zill.

Here are photos of a closed up pina coladas.
