I would thinking staking will increase the odds of them snapping depending on how young your trees are they will be much more flexible than a mature tree my plans for my trees are bend don't break

Gradually introduce more sun slowly to avoid burning

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Figs in south Florida
« on: August 22, 2017, 06:09:38 PM »
At least for me the nematodes were a huge problem for my figs so when I bought new ones I cut out a hole in the bottom of a five gallon bucket. The nematodes are mostly in the top 18 inches of the soil so if you have a barrier it helps the trees planted like these are doing much better than those not

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Mango tree fertilizer

I'm for it I would never use an inorganic fertilizer either you seem to have a good plan as for you original question don't worry about the ratios I've used some of them before look into the cost of each bag and how much you will be needing if you have a lot of trees it can get expensive pretty quick.

Ugly Betty had a nice taste definitely toward the top of my list also tried the old variety Springfiels which I thought was rather nice as well

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Soursop (guanabana) or atemoya?
« on: August 06, 2017, 11:13:09 AM »
In my opinion soursop is much better tasting all around only downside is they are not very tolerant of anything below 40 degrees. If you can find a way to plant both do it but if it's one or the other grow the one you like the best.
