Tropical Fruit Discussion / what to do
« on: May 19, 2020, 06:24:08 PM »

Had some wind with the rainstorm last night and it ended up ripping off a branch that was heavy laden with fruit on my Ugly Betty mango tree. I collected all of the unripe fruit and was hoping to at least try and pickle them. Any pickling recipes or procedures would be appreciated.  :'(

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Bacterial spot on rosigold mangoes
« on: June 13, 2018, 06:20:37 PM »
I have what appears to be bacterial spot on 1 of 2 rosigold mango trees. pictures included for help verifying this.  Last year I had this same presentation on 1 out of 2 of my sweet tart mango trees.  It has not presented itself again this year on the sweet tart tree that was affected last year. Fingers crossed that it will not be a consistent yearly affliction.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / sweet tart rotting on the stem

This year one of my sweet tart mango trees has all the fruit starting to rot prior to ripening. Any one else having this problem?

This collusion conspiracy may have more "teeth" than the Trump/Russian collusion conspiracy.  Squirrels, who are creatures of nature, with great smelling senses should be able to determine what is a ripe mango.  But contrary to that logic they raid my tree's pulling down unripe mangoes, take a little bite and move on to the next unripe mango.  They might find one ripe mango after five or six attempts on the unripe ones.  If I leave them on the ground, the night crew(raccoons) come in and polish off the unripe mangoes left by the squirrels.  This is definitely nature working together, aka colluding! My evidence in the picture below.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / four tree ID (mangoes)?

I have four separate mango trees that were either mislabeled or not labeled and this is the first year bearing fruit.  I would appreciated any help trying to ID the trees.  I have a picture of the tree and the fruit that is on it in the picture below the mango tree picture. Thanks in advance!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Wind Danger to Coconut Cream Mango
« on: December 19, 2016, 12:49:17 PM »
I don't know if this is a unique trait of the coconut cream mango, but I know of three separate instances of where the coconut cream mango tree snapped at the trunk during the last hurricane. Winds were at the max 80 mph and in all cases these trees were in yards with lots of other assorted mango varieties that suffered no damage.  I know that the foliage is very convoluted in it's shape and I wonder if this creates more surface area for the winds to use to snap the trees?  Of course there could be other factors I am not aware of that might be the culprit, but it seems to much of a coincidence that just within my small circle of contacts that this is uniquely happening to only the coconut cream mango trees.       

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Help ID

Does anyone recognize this tree?  Is it a tropical fruit tree.  I don't want to continue growing it if it is not.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Please help ID this mango tree
« on: July 09, 2015, 04:12:39 PM »

Hi, I would appreciate any help identifying this mango tree.  It does not resemble any of the other mangos that I have and I am at a loss to ID it.  The fruit is not yet ripe so I am not able to do a taste comparison yet either.
