Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Phoenix mango

I've had a few Phoenix fruits this year, and they have all been delicious.  Nice texture as well.  Definitely in my top 10.

I believe that Lara Farms Nursery has grafted self-fertile trees.

Hi Sayyid,

They were actually my first go-to.  Unfortunately, they advised that they lost both plants (and, tragically, much of their collection) to the hurricanes.

It was a terrible year in my neighborhood in East Miramar.  Even reliable old Haden trees were nearly bare.  And of my 20-something trees, only one fruited.  Not a single bloom on Maha Chanok, my star performer last year.  Very disappointing.  I'm blaming the warm winter last year.  I'm not hoping for freezing temps this winter, but a couple of weeks of cold weather would be greatly appreciated.

Another boost.  Someone out there has got to have these.... :-)

I'd plant Jehangir, Neelam, Zill Indochinese, Shwe Hin Tha, Mulgoba, Lemon Zest and Banganapalli.  Then I'd totally cheat and graft at least 3 more varieties on each.  Variety is good :-)

Best regards,
Scott

Not yet.  it's only 2 feet tall.

I'm pretty sure that mango de Piña gets slapped onto any mango with a pineapple flavor.  So everyone's got their own mango de Piña.  If you search the net you'll see pics of very small fruit bearing this name, and also extremely large fruit bearing this name.  Also, if you talk to people from Puerto Rico about the fruit some will remember a small fruit and some will remember a large fruit. 

I've got what's supposed to be a mango de Piña tree growing that was provided by a friend from PR, but I don't have any illusions that it's from a cultivar by that name.  I don't think there is one.  Maybe it's a Tommy Atkins. Who knows.....

Best regards,
Scott

That sure looks like Maha to me.  Unless, of course, my tree is also a fake :-)

No luck :-(  I'm holding out hope that someone out there has these 2 varieties in their collection and is willing to share.

Do you know how to graft? If so, I think I may have a source for budwood for at least one of the two varieties.
Hi, yes I can graft.  And thank you!

best regards,
Scott

Have you checked Pepe's

https://www.pepesplants.com/tropical-fruit-names.html

I don't know and have not done business with them but have seen youtube videos and they seem legit.
The page I linked to has Tikal Custard Apple somewhere on there, check it out and good luck.

Looks like Har or FloridaGreenman may be able to help, they have posted about Canul in the past.  Many years ago :)

Thanks a lot for the information :-)  I really appreciate it.

Hi all,

I have been looking for these 2 A. reticulata varieties forever but no one seems to have them, so I'm hoping someone out there knows where to purchase them, or has budwood for sale.  Thanks, all!

Best regards,
Scott

Future,

If you don't mind my asking, where did you get Suvarna Rekha?  Do you have budwood available?  I'd love to buy some.

Best regards,
Scott

There’s a really cool dude named Alex....

LOL!  I know :-)  I didn't realize he had this one.  Thanks!

I got to sample Son Pari last year.  It's one of my faves.  Really nice complex "Indian" taste but not too resinous, and not too sweet.  Very, very good in my opinion.

Best regards,
Scott

I was completely underwhelmed by CC.  I taste more coconut in a Valencia Pride.  Having said that, it's an OK mango - it's just not what I had anticipated.

San Pablo is really good.  And I believe it's self-fertile.

24
Agreed.  2 orders placed and no delivery or communication.  PayPal cases opened.  This is a scam.

25
I figured.  That's too bad.
