I'm new here and browse mostly on an android phone. The forum is quite difficult to read and use on mobile presently, but if you install a simple plugin to thr forum, it will be tapatalk friendly. Tapatalk is a mobile formatted phone app that makes using web forums easier and more beautiful.

Great story, thanks for that, and the reply.  :)

I have one on site at work, wondering what it is and if it is worth grafting. 

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Suitable for grafting?
« on: June 04, 2019, 04:49:49 PM »
I have seedlings here from a large mango tree that looks like Ford to my eye, although I dont have much mango experience, it is a large tree with large fruit with a good deal of fiber, and is quite prone to anthracnose. The flavor is pretty good, but it often gets jelly seeds.

 I'm wondering if seedlings from this tree would be okay for rootstock as the tree itself (planted in 1974 by the previous owners of my home) is huge and healthy and seems undaunted by the fungal problems on the fruit. Should I bother? Or search out a better rootstock variety? I'm mostly going to be practicing grafting again after many years away from it, but don't want to create throw away trees either...

Hey everyone my name is Chris, I'm a native of South Florida, and live in Broward County. I've been in the Nursery and landscaping industry here since 1989, I've grown many different tropical fruit trees over the years, as a nursery grower and landscape gardener. I owned and operated a small landscape design,  installation, and maintenance company for the past nineteen years, but I'm now employed full-time as a groundskeeper at a local retirement home, so now for the first time in many years have some extra time to devote to my own small garden. I grow and crossbreed many types of hot peppers as a hobby, and when I'm gardening you will always find me listening to the blues greats from BB King and Keb Mo to Stevie Ray and Joe Bonamassa.
See you dirtside.
