Tropical Fruit Discussion / Rosigold Flowering Now
« on: October 14, 2019, 02:24:00 PM »
Hey All,

I have a Rosigold Mango that started flowering last week, is this normal for this variety? It has been in the ground for about a year and a half, planted as a three gallon. I tipped it in late August.  I havenít let it Fruit yet but was planning on letting it Fruit next year. Is it worth letting it hold Fruit now?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Favorite Wetting Agent
« on: May 24, 2019, 11:55:33 AM »
What is everyoneís favorite wetting agent, surfactant, sticker/spreader (Iím sure there is a difference between these but they seem to be used interchangeably by lay people) for foliar feeding? Right now Iím primarily using Keyplex, epsom salt, and Silica Blast. Is there anything that shouldnít be used with a wetting agent?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lychee Wind Burn
« on: May 12, 2019, 11:36:07 AM »
My yard gets a lot of wind, particularly in the spring and itís really taking a toll on my trees, particularly my small lychees that were planted as three gallons last spring. I tried putting up wind blocks made of landscaping fabric which didnít work very well and Iím planning on spraying them with a silica spray, is there anything else I can do to help my trees? Will they stand up to the wind after they have a bit more size on them?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Soil Testing
« on: March 22, 2019, 02:25:09 PM »
Iím thinking of sending some of my soil out for testing but the soil on my property has three distinct layers. The top layer is loamy sand which is 12-24Ē thick, then white/rusty sandy clay which is 6-20Ē thick, followed by black sticky sandy muck. Whenever I plant a tree, I dig down 3-4í so my trees should be able to get to all three layers.  Should I send out three different samples or one sample with a mix of all three soils?  Are my trees roots more likely to stay in one layer than the others?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango Recommendations
« on: February 25, 2019, 05:22:03 PM »
Hey All,

Iíve been lurking here for a quite a while and finally decided to register and post!
I currently have four mango trees: Rosigold, PPK, Fruit Punch, and Venus. All were bought as three gallons and planted last spring. I chose the varieties I did because I wanted to have hardy trees that would produce for as much of the year as possible (from what I understand, they ripen in the order listed). I have room for one more tree and currently my thought is to go with an Edward. Edward was the best mangoy mango I tried last year and would give me something in between Rosigold and PPK. Although from what Iíve been reading on here, it sounds like I would be foolish to not just plant Sweet Tart (which I havenít had a chance to try yet) instead.  Iíve considered grafting Sweet Tart on to Fruit Punch so I can have both but Edward has a reputation as being being shy bearing and Sweet Tart has a reputation as being the best mango ever so Iím thinking I might just want to have it on its own.  I guess my questions would be 1) do I have to fruiting times correct and 2) which option for planting/grafting would you recommend?
