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.

Don't Let young mango trees hold fruit. Most people want immediate gratification but success is for those that are tolerant and willing to wait.

In California, we have slow and poor growth as it is why give the young tree early stress of production? 

Be Patient. So many impatient growers.

Johnny

I like to keep my trees small by letting them fruit and high possibility of them gettng stunted.

We shall see, im conducting an experiment on nutrients based on plant needs.

I'll post photos when i harvest all my fruits & on late fall.

I’ve seen multiple examples of people letting their trees hold too much fruit when young and many of the trees have died. If you fertilize properly and don’t overwater in Winter, the tree can easily survive.

Simon


I concur 100%.

I have about 15 sweet tarts on a turpentine roootstock  & i dont like the way its growing. After i harvest my sweet tarts, i will be pugging my treee for a better symmetrical growth.

23







Aside from these trees being too young to hold fruit and the growth getting stunted...is there any other negatives? Can the tree possibly just die due to exhaustion or anything like that?

There is a high possibliity it could get stunted or for worst die.

However, i have been feeding my trees with heavy organic materials to lessen its chance to get stunted or even die.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Cat Chu mango
« on: August 01, 2019, 02:53:36 PM »
Perhaps slightly off topic, but has anyone had any luck fruiting Hoa Loc here?  I've had a tree in the ground for several years and nuthin.  I'm slowly converting it to Cat Chu (CAC).

I’ve fruited Hoa Loc. It’s more Thai flavored.

Cac/Cat Chu is much better and most people from Vietnam have never had it. They only know Hoa Loc.



Here is a comparison of cat hoa loc (bigger) and cat chu (smaller)

My friend  in VN told me that their #1 best variety is Cat Hoa loc & cat chu being the 2nd.

Environmental influence could alter the flavor.
