Nice fruit! and thanks again Brad.

I don't think its a local vs. whatever issue. I've got at least 3 trees from 2 different local nurseries that i'm pretty sure aren't as labelled. I don't think honesty or care track with size.

I've seen it recommended for difficult oak trees to prune the roots around the tree a foot or two out from the trunk a year in advance so that the root ball can thicken up. I.e. spade around the tree and then just leave it there for a good while.

Kevin if the seeds from those fruit aren’t nucellar you should get wildly variable seedlings from them right?

Gin berry.

Love it. I like that you can use the leaf shape to see crosses.

Very cool! thanks for the info Simon et al

Had it a few days ago. Nice mango. Strong Coconut flavor (but i've read in another thread Pickering loses its pineapple if left on the tree). Some fiber around the seed. Originally had about 20 fruits in this first crop, but none of the rest grew larger than a golf ball. This one was tucked away under the leaves and reached an almost normal size.

Also, the tree is now flushing like crazy. Only really healthy mango tree i have out of half a dozen florida trees and dozens of seedlings i've planted.

I have a friend who’s brother went nuts in her yard starting 7yrs ago. She’s cleaning up and getting rid of dozens of trees. Most mature. Plum and loquats would make great rootstocks. Fig and bananas are good but she doesn’t know variety.

Hi Shane, I have plenty of the Dwarf Namwah as big as you like if you want.       Regards   Patrick

Awesome. Will swing by this weekend!

I found a really nice tasting catalina island (possibly holly leafed) cherry today. Texted a friend and he said he found a nice one up in LA. Are they pretty common?

I wanted more, but its really all pit, so i sucked on that for a while.

I've seen them ripe at two different locations in Vista. California Tropical Fruit Trees as well as Mira Costa College.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Anyone tried airlayering an Avocado?
« on: September 03, 2019, 06:08:15 PM »
I thought etiolation was necessary for avocado.

Seeds in May 2015. Germinated and in pots for couple years. In the ground (4 different locations) for a couple years. The one i planted under my mandarin tree seems to be the happiest. From two others i get one set of leaves every year, but the 'understory' one split this year and i got a set of leaves on each of 3 branches. Nothing compared to what you're getting, but I'm content.
