My Maha is growing fast,! Half the tree is holding fruit , the other half had a huge flush .

Hello Members ,

I purchased this grafted Wilson P Avocado tree a few month ago from eBay , Rustiko is the seller out of PR.

The rest arrived supper stressed out I thought it was a goner !.

I just placed it to a shady spot in my lanai and several weeks later it bounced back!

Itís a beautiful tree with beautiful foliage 😊.
I love the taste of the fruit , a family member sends me fruit and we loved it .
Will be planting this in ground in a few weeks .

Took the day off to chill and do some early morning gardening very relaxing for me ,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Sweet Tart Mango Tree Branch Splitting.
« on: May 26, 2018, 11:55:16 AM »
Hello Guys,

Just noticed my ST mango tree branches are splitting and the tree is holding lots of fruit , can anyone tell me what is causing this ?
Thanks Ed

Hello Gang ;

Hope everyone is safe with minimal damage to your trees and properly.
My family and I been Driving for 2 days from NYC - Naples FL.

There Where times that we thought we where never going to make it home .
It was total Madness! From I-95 NY Thru Naples .
Gas was super scarce! All GA exits closed to Thru traffic .

We where lucky to find gas at every station that we stopped !

Ok we made it safe to Naples on Fumes no freakin gas anywhere in SF , there where some station with gas but the lines where hundreds of cars awaiting to gas up with police escort.

Ok once we pulled into our community we saw all the fallen trees , Missing roof tiles , pool cages all over the place , got a sick feeling in my stomach as we approached out home .

The 1st thing we noticed was my Plumeria trees where toppped over front of our home .
No big deal they have shallow roots , I restated them .
The structure to the front of my home was not compromised!
My Lanai in tact I even forgot to put away all my potted plants !.

Made my way to my mango trees expecting The worse, to my surprise they where not up rooted !
Yes they looked like they went thru hell and back ! .

But all in tact thank god ! .

My next door neighbors suffered lots of destruction, feel so bad for them ! There much older folks , I will be helping them tomorrow cleaning up ..

Here's some pics I just took .

Ps I feel like a total Zombie! Driving soooooo dam much ..


So this week I was assigned To Work in the Jacksonville office , I took my family with me and decided to have a look at our old house, Sadly the new owners ripped out every single fruit tree, Banana tree I ever planted there 😳

That was a sad site to see, my Girls couldn't Belive it ..
Even the Citrus trees I planted ..

I went to google earth to see the rear of the house and they also removed the trees in the rear .

I had planted trees on both sides , rear and front of the house ..
That is crazy ..

Here's a google earth pic ..
