Jeff, when you say "a few pounds a year" for a small tree, do you mean? 10, 20, 30lbs? and how often should it be spread around the tree, all at once? or a couple of pounds every two week? I just planted my first one last month so I want to make sure it gets what it needs to prosper. :) Thanks in advance! XE

Thanks to both of you for the information. I will be patient and prune accordingly. :)

I have a mission fig in a 30 gal pot that is not producing any fruit. It looks nice and healthy but its just full of leaves. Its been there about 2 years and have only gotten one little fig so far. What am I doing wrong? I live in Phoenix AZ. so I put it under partial shade. Any suggestions are welcome. :)

White sapote are from the tropics. I am from El Salvador and they just grow there mostly from seeds and are delicious. One of my favorite fruit as a child. :)

In El Salvador they are called "mamon" but they are sweet. I guess its like the Tamarind, we only have it sour and I didn't know that there was a sweet version of them. :) and the trees are huge! :)

beautiful girls Simon. :)
Is there a list somewhere that groups the mangoes by vigor and growth?
I have a Carrie that is doing well, and 2 1/2 years on the ground and was thinking to graft Nan Doc Mai to it. but I also have 6 month to one year old  planted trees, currently I have: Carrie, Lemon Zest, Valencia Pride, Malika, Kesar  and Beverly. I also have in the ground but struggling: Coco Nut Cream, Pina Colada, and Fruit Punch and on 25 gal pots I have  Southern Blush and Raposa.

I have ordered Nan Doc Mai, Jumbo Kesar, Super Julie and Maha Chanok scion wood that I want to graft to any of those trees or graft into seedlings I have in pots, the only problem is that I don't have any more room to plant them in the ground and would have to stay in large pots :(
any suggestions how to pair them up? Any advised its greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced everyone!

Too bad. I will see what I can do to extend the life of the tree. But it sound like it has a dead sentence. :(

But you said there is no cure for fireblight, the branch that got black was dead. All the leaves fell off it and it looked bad. so, I assume that if it continues to spread it will eventually kill the whole tree. I guess I need to start reading about it . :) Thanks!

Thanks, even though is bad news.
I ordered Argifos from Amazon yesterday. I will probably get it tomorrow. Should I use it on the pear tree anyway? It just started to break buds so I don't know if it is hopeless at this time.
Its so sad to see your trees die.

Thanks, for the suggestions.
Does it comes with an expiration date?
So I assume it can be use on other trees? I have a pear tree that has started to get some branches affected by some black disease as well. I had to cut one of the branches way down to stop the spreading to the whole tree. And had to pug one of my mangoes from what it seems the same problem in the process to save the ice cream tree I lost my LZ graft. :(

Where can I get  Abound at a reasonable price? all I see in the internet is one gallon varying from $250 plus!
Is there a way I can get a pint or less I only have a few trees and don't want to spend all that money on a gallon that may expire before I can use it all.
Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks I liked it because it gives you illustrations that makes it that much easier to understand.
