Citrus General Discussion / Re: best Pummelo?
« on: February 24, 2021, 05:09:46 PM »
I have a big Chandler.
I grafted Valentine last August but it only flushing now.
Does Valentine have  a little off taste like Chandler and other pummelo?

Mango is an evergreen tree.
We can graft it any time except during month with frost.
Use veneer with nurse leaf.





These were grafted 2/28/2020 in FV.
Scions were 1 node each, with nurse leaf.
Removed 1/2 of leaf and bagged with a bit of water.

Both grafts are flowering.
You should graft now if you have scions.

There is no consensus.
We go by research.

Chaffee best in the cold.
White best in the heat.
Seedlings of Chaffee x White have both genes.

Best is seedlings above.

We trim trees with few big branches back to anywhere from 8-16Ē.
Your small tree has many branches.
If you trim back to 8Ē you get a small tree with many more branches bunched up.
Leave it alone.

Last year Honeyhart tasted just like any other atemoya from the same tree.

The good thing about it is that it matures earlier than atis and atemoya.
It would be better than them on year with cool summer.

Donít wack it.
Plant another variety nearby.
Pick one that flower a week earlier or later to get overlapping of male and female flowers.

Cac means cock.
None natives pronounce cock as coc.

Probably taste similar to crock.

According to that article, lychee buds form 4-6 weeks after pruning.
Here in Southern California our coldest month is February.
We should prune our lychee on New Year Day.
New buds would form in mid February.
The cold trigger the buds into flower buds.

We should try this next year.

Which month is coldest in FL?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Annonas waking up, time to feed?
« on: January 28, 2021, 09:41:05 PM »
Last year I fed my trees in March.
Trimmed them in April and fed again.
1 tree grew very well but only had 5 flowers.

Well fed trees have less flowers.
This year I will water less and feed after I see flowers.

Beautiful property!

If you make those rings thicker and deeper they'll help your trees from tipping over during a hurricane.

On a year with warm summer, like last year, they all taste good enough.
I canít pick any over another except for mediocre yet pretty 47-18, over taste.
The bigger one wins.

For me I like fully ripen fruit that break down into clumps, like Lisa.
Iím waiting on a second try to see if Tropic Sun having good texture like Lisa.

My only PM looks hideous so itís getting a low mark.

On a year with cool summer most are bad.
AP win since they survive winter better.
My friend gave me a couple of tree ripen AP last June.
They were as good as any.

Iíve had fruits with hard seed coat like your AP and rubbery like your Lisa, from other varieties.
Not sure if they were due to over loading or under watering or picking immature fruits.
Iím making adjustments for all 3.


You wait on your multi-graft trees to try all.
In the meantime you train your seedlings for many branching.
Do a graft on each branches when you picked your choice.
Itís easy for you.

If tree ripen LM3 has texture like tree ripen Lisa Iím in.
I couldnít find any scions for a friend last year.
