Looks like spider mite damage. Run youre thumb over the leaf and see if it turns orange. Also check with a microscope. It leaves tiny white spots where they fed.

Hey Har. The leaf is smooth no bumps an no exoskeletons. It is less than a foot off the ground.

Ive noticed the underside of my Lemon Meringue leaves look like this. The tops look fine and healthy. Does anyone know the cause and if its an issue. There are no insects or insect damage. Thank you.

Maha Chanok although not a Zills variety. Orange Sherbet is good and so is Cotton Candy. They are both Zills.

With this warm weather mine are still flushing too. If you want fruit dont prune it now it will not have time to flush new growth before blooming. Shoots need to be matured at least a few months. Id leave it and prune after next harvest.

Powdery mildew has no association with aphids. Ive had both but neither at the same time.

I've seen frozen durian for sale in many Asian shops around my area either whole or in a plastic box. There should be lots of fruit on the trees still just no mangoes.

Its ok for now. The mangoes are 6 feet apart which is the same spacing used in many high density mango plantations in India and other countries. Some even plant 900 trees per acre. Dr. Campbell and Cecil have many mango trees on 6 foot spacing, some less. Those are commercial plantations, I'm growing for personal consumption only. I enjoy having numerous varieties as well as pruning and shaping the trees. As of now I havent run into any problems but worse case scenario I have to remove a few trees in the future. For now I'm enjoying the ride.

Thank you! 1/10 of an acre. I have limited space as this is in my front yard. I'm opting for variety over production. Most trees are about 8 feet apart. They are going to be more like bushes than trees. If I get a few fruits per tree ill be happy.

Thanks gozp. My goal is to keep the canopies low and complex. I have about 15 more mango trees I'll post some more pics soon.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango planting question
« on: July 25, 2018, 08:57:40 PM »
I just purchased two mango trees which are much smaller than the size I usually get although in the same size pot. (3 gallon) I'm wondering if I should plant them or let them mature in their pots a little longer. They're about two feet tall.

Although they are both excellent I prefer Lemon Zest flavorwise. If your tree is having trouble beyond repair Id replace it now during the growing season. Id opt for slightly inferior fruit to no fruit at all.

Thanks Ed. Theyre small but it'll be exciting watching them grow up.
