Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Any drawback to Maha chanok?
« on: March 09, 2018, 02:43:28 PM »
I know mangos can be subjective, but the Maha is one of my favorite trees in the yard.   

I have used perennial peanut with much success.  Strong roots, fast grower.  I understand some varieties are nitrogen fixers. 

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Grasses Stunt Fruit Tree Growth?
« on: February 03, 2017, 02:04:47 PM »
I was reading an older book recently and the author mentioned in passing about planting grasses (fountain, etc.) near fruit trees.  He didn't go into any detail but wrote kind of "matter of fact" that it was a bad idea. 

I am in South Florida (zone 10) and my wife loves grasses.  Are there any reasons to not plant grasses near my fruit trees.  Are grasses considered anti-companion? 

Thanks in advance.
