Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Lil’ Gem mango?
« on: Today at 10:17:12 AM »
I’ve had some good Little Gems but I suspect it’s a mango that doesn’t respond well to being picked green.

There is also the Mango Madu or Indonesian honey mango that was sold by Fairchild at the mango festival a couple years ago. It’s supposed to have pockets of honey like nectar. Still waiting for mine to fruit.

That’s mangifera lalijiwa . We have a producing one and It’s pretty mediocre.

Saw this in Merritt Island last year.

I suspect some kind of mite.

I wonder how does M4 taste, and does it have a name yet?

Sugarloaf although some refuse to call it that...

That's E-4.

M-4 is yet to be named. Hopefully not a name that will just get confused with a bunch of others like the “Peach” ones, etc.

What Size Alex ? 3 or 7 Gal?

Thanks Ed

3 gal

We have some left.

What does the PC fruit look like?

I have a small plant that I thought was PC.  It has a fruit on it that has this point to it.  Almost like a beak.

It didn't look the the PC in the video linked to earlier. 

First two pictures are of the fruit.  I am trying to show the pointed part.
The other 2 pictures show the leafs in case this helps ID the fruit.

Not Pina Colada. Maybe Lemon Zest

Mamey are not tolerant of flooding. Sapodilla have better flood tolerance but can be killed by it as well (personal experience).

Your Hasya is likely enjoying the cross pollination from the Prolific. Hopefully whatever you replace it with can take on the same role relatively quickly or you could see a reduction in the Hasya’s fruit production.

They appear to be Carries

Pina Colada is outstanding. I don’t think Sugarloaf is better than it; they’re about on equal footing in terms of flavor.

It’s definitely a Haden.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Ruth mango

Just had the "Ruth" mango. Size and shape reminded me of "Duncan" mango. Flesh was nearly fiberless. Flesh near the skin was bitter. I've had similar experiences like this with SE Asian cvs. and their derivatives- especially PPK and Duncan. Brix registered 16. Seed was mono.

Was that a shipped fruit or purchased at the fruit stand? Because if it came from the fruit stand it could have been a Young mis-identifies as a Ruth. Ruth has an Indian/West Indian flavor.

We tried Sein Ta Lone yesterday. Very good mango. Flavor group is Indochinese hybrid, ala Dupuis Saigon, Fairchild , Venus, Cac etc

Our Sein ta Lone is fruiting this year. Looking forward to trying it.

My yard guy said it was white fly

You should ask him for a refund.

That 34-24 had to have been a mislabeled fruit because it doesn’t have any resinous/Bombay-esque flavor at all. It’s pretty similar to Sweet Tart actually

Yikes. That's nuts. What are all those sap spots from? Some sort of insect pest?

Terrible to see this even in such dry conditions.

For some varieties it just doesn’t seem to matter.

Our Thai mangos are largely clean so far. We’ll see what happens when they start to ripen.

No MBBS on Angie, Pickering, Maha Chanok (green), and Honey Kiss (green).  But I'm in what's generally a disease-free zone--1/2 mile from the ocean.

3 of those 4 (Angie, Pickering, honeykiss) are resistant to it as best as we can tell. Mbbs is very active in coastal zone and actually probably started there (hypoluxo/Manalapan).

Super Julie is getting hammered for me this year. I’ll try to remember to take pics.

Might be a random seedling tree.

Ugly Betty has been a big disappointment for us as well. Gary Zill’s ugly Betty trees, which are much older of course, have seemed to produce well

It seems like this has been a low disease pressure year for mangoes here in FL. So far, no MBBS on any of my trees. Crops seem like they're be a little early this year compared to last, which could help in mitigating disease.

Anybody with MBBS yet?

Two fruits of my lemon zest mangoes have advanced MBBS just as it begun to ripen and I eliminated some more that seem to have early symptoms of it. 10 less mangoes so far.  :( There are still plenty though. If it gets bad, I'm just gonna top work it to two new Zill cultivars.

Some of our LZ fruit are already getting it as well.

After last season several large,  badly infected trees were cut to stumps. Numerous smaller trees were also stumped and topworked. I also got on top of the spray program early. These steps combined with a dry early fruit development period seem to have resulted in clean fruit up to this point on smaller trees, included infected varieties badly afflicted last year (Ah Ping and Mario). However, at this point last year my fruit appeared pretty clean as well aside from those two , then the rains came and that was that. The rains are here now in palm beach county, and we’re probably going to break some May records.

I’ve been harvesting fruit since mid-March, but the Edward have started to come in quantity over the last couple weeks. I’m now seeing mbbs/rot levels comparable to last season at this point in time for Edward. This is a likely indicator that moderately to highly susceptible varieties will see their crops impacted *as the fruit nears/reaches maturity*.

Also seeing mbbs really bad on our largest Super Julie tree by the way. I had suspicions about that one last year but this year it’s really taking off on it. Shame. Might be topworking that one after the season is over, and we have a couple of them.

I have hope for early season varieties that are moderately-to-highly susceptible, but I think mid and late season stuff that falls into those groups are pretty much doomed.

Anyone have this scion?

Would like to graft on my neighbors tree since they’re from Indonesia and they commented on how much they missed this variety.

We have it available

didn't see it on your list.  that's why i asked! now i'll be sure to make an order shortly.

We have it spelled “Aromanis” because that’s how the tree was labeled but it’s the same mango.

Leaves and skin sheen aren’t right for Glenn. I would actually guess Edward based on the foliage and fruit shape. Sometimes if they’re in a happy spot they can load up like that.
