As I said on Facebook...  SUPERSTAAARRRRRR!!!   8)


Do you happen to still have seeds for sale?  I would like 8 total, please.



In the second video, their ultimate reason for inducing early blooming, is to take advantage of a longer harvest season, in other words, take advantage of harvesting fruit out of season.  Their talk about nitrogen, potassium, and boron, is basically to also help induce early blooming, and nourish the trees, since they are introducing a stress to the tree.  Ideally, I guess what they are doing is splitting up their trees' harvests, which is interesting, but also stressful to the trees.

In the first video, they are discussing avocado trees that produce seedless, small fruit, due to male and female flowers, that are not opening at the same time.  From what they are saying, it also happens when A and B type cultivars are not compatible with each other for pollinization.

Best option in my opinion, would be Stevenson Landscaping in Cocoa, the best nursery I have found in the area, as their selections are great, and their prices are phenomenal.  I just called them, and they currently have Tropic Snow and Tropic Beauty.

Apart from that, I saw a couple low-chill peach trees, at the Rockledge Lowe's, the other day.  They were Florida Prince, I believe.  I've seen some of the local Walmarts carry a few, also.  Don't recall which stores I saw them at, but a good bet would be the beachside one on Eau Gallie, and the one on Sarno Rd., the ones I usually frequent.

There's also Our Kids Tropicals Nursery, in Winter Garden.  They have a nice selection of various fruit trees and Jaboticaba, especially multi-grafted ones.  Larry Shatzer has done wonders with his 3-acre property, and has many mature trees planted, of those he is selling, which he'll be happy to show you.  I had a very pleasant time there, and Larry is a nice host.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Ross Sapote or Canistel?

Hello all.  Thanks for resurrecting this old post!  I have a question related to Canistel, and I wanted to try here before creating a separate post.  I am told there are Canistel fruit, which most closely resemble the taste of Lucuma (Pouteria Lucuma), originally from South America.  As there are so many varieties of Canistel, which would be best?  As for the Lucuma fruit, it tastes like a sweet potato, ranges from dry to moist flesh, and makes excellent desserts, especially ice cream.  Since it will mainly be a dessert ingredient, taste would be most important, with moisture content not being very important.  Thanks in advance!

Picked up quite a few Brooks over a week ago, on Merritt Island.  Tasted a couple ripe ones last night, and they were delightfully pleasant, with a good balance of tart and sweetness.  Nice to see some of the older Florida varieties, still in production.  :)

WoW, what a selection!  PM sent.

That's awesome, especially with how young your Lucuma is.  I have a baby Lucuma seedling, bought recently, which has experienced minor new leaf growth only twice, in the last few months.  Are they normally slow-growing?  Don't know how well they grow in Florida, just happy to have one, in the first place.  Want to grow a Canistel (Egg Fruit), as well.  Heard they taste similar, but there are so many varieties available here.

Still on tree:
A few LZ
A few Graham
A few Carrie
Sweet tart
Unknown mango - flavor reminiscent of sweet tart but milder, kind of tangy/tart

Hello, if you'd like to sell any of your mangoes, or trade for some plants/trees/etc., please let me know.  I am local.  :)

Hello, I would also be interested in purchasing some seeds if available this year, please.



I have access to a property growing a mango tree that they call and looks like what's called and sold as pineapple mango here.
Its extremely sweet to the point some people dont like it because it's too sweet for them. I like them more than any other mangoes I've had.

I'm not sure how to confirm thats what you are looking for, but here's photos of the fruits.

I'd be interested in purchasing some seeds, if you can get some.  I'm totally interested in unknown varieties of mangoes, the sweeter the better.   8)


It might be a seedling of it unless she sold you little grafted trees.  She also probably planted a seed she brought back from Puerto Rico and its probably a mono seed so its not breeding true to the parent tree. 

They look like theyre supposed to grow in clusters.  Ask her to sell you some fruit and see if it has that acidic kicks its supposed to have.  These are the only 2 pics that look similar.  Im getting my old boy involved in this hunt.  I cant believe this is such a mistery still.  He talks about this mango like if theres nothing that competes with it 😆

Yes, they're seedlings, but I figured I'd take the chance.  If the fruit is good, I'll post here with a review, and see about gathering scions.

Hello, reading this post, reminded me of a couple young mango trees, that I bought from a Puerto Rican lady last year.  She didn't have a name for them, but I wanted to share pics of the fruit her tree is currently producing, in case this is what you're looking for.  She is supposed to share some fruit with me soon, and I can ask ask for grafts, if the fruit is good.  Please let me know, thanks.

I will take one of each, please.

Hello, you can also try searching for 'Shiranui' but every time I have eaten the fruit, they were always seedless.
