Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Growing sugar apple from seed
« on: August 05, 2020, 10:57:14 AM »
I bought 30 red sugar apple seeds from ebay and 25 of them has sprouted so far. They did take a long time to germinate about 4-6 weeks and I see another 3 barely coming out of the soil. Once germinated they do grow fast..

Tropical Fruit Discussion / So. Cal avocados varaiety

If you are looking for some rare avocados Louies Nursery in Riverside just got a bunch today. I came by just to see what they have and lucky enough new shipment of rare avocados have just arrived. I met a few avocado lover coming from distance to buy avocados..I got me my reed and queen avocado..I took picture of the tag of some of the rare avocados you don't usually see.

I am looking to graft a few varaities of mango on a home depot store bought manila seedlings..I am in Southern California and looking for local scion to buy. I am looking especially for nam doc mai and Carrie. PM what you guys have available..Thanks

I am not an expert by any chance but from my observation at least in my area manila rootstock mangoes does very well. Florida turpentine will survive but very slow grower and tend to flowers at least the 1st couple of years instead of growing flushes. My alphonso now is still small in height but the main trunk has gotten big and now steady. What I am saying is it take a little more time for turpentine to adjust here in Cali. I just bought a grafted keitt @ Lowes and a manila mango I will be using to graft a coconut cream and LZ in to it.

Ant, do you buy trees that are already on manila rootstock? Or do you just graft onto manila trees that you buy from the store?


I bought them already on Manila rootstock.

How long ago did you plant your Coconut Cream in the ground? and is on on Turpentine.

Just wondering as I noticed you have many flowers still and my CC is now starting its first flush on some branches and has already finished flowering overall.

CC has been in the ground for 2 years now, I got that from POG out in Florida. I like the height now but a very slow grower in So. Cal

Thank guys, for some reason Florida mango trees are dwarf in my area. I live in the South Bay area that could also be a reason. I do have chico sapote, atemoya, and cherimoyas doing well also.

Hello guys have not post here in awhile due too a busy schedule. Did a very hard pruning on all my mango tree. You will notice that mango on manila rootstock tends to grow taller than florida brought trees.

I would not prune at this time,  you will not get any growth because winter is coming soon. Pruning in California is different than Florida. Select pruning is what you need in California.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: How fast does Moringa typically grow?
« on: August 24, 2014, 02:44:20 PM »
Moringa is a fast grower here in So.Cali they will stop growing during winter time. That is why you have to prune them during spring or else they will grow tall and flimsy. They do not like slot of water either.

Simon, I actually do not have a schedule for watering my trees. I only water them when I think they need to be water. Most of the time I will just water the trees once a week and on hot week once a week or twice depending on how high the temps get. I heard a lot of good things about Lemon Zest and thinking of adding it to my collection.This is what I have so far planted in the ground.

Just like what socal said sweet and good. Glenn I think is one of the best mango variety that can be grown in Southern California.

« on: July 13, 2014, 12:48:06 PM »
Simon, let the tree hold some fruits so it does not re-bloom.I am not no mango expert but what works for me is the timing of fertilizing.I usually fertilize once a year with miracle grow avocado & Mango  fertilizer.I usually apply the fertilizer when fruit is as big as a marble in my area around May and June. The tree will dropped fruits but at the same time retain some and you will get growth throughout the summer.Here is some of my mango tree holding fruits and having good growth.(Pictures taken today)
