Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango Id
« on: July 24, 2018, 07:24:03 PM »

Can anyone help me Iíd this mango has a pleasant taste moderate amount of fiber the tree is around 30ft tall most of the mangos are around 1lb. Itís on my grandfathers land next to an old Haden thatís 60+plus years old so Iíd imagine this tree is also an old school Florida mango or possibly a seedling?

I use to only like cleft grafting I just thought it was the easiest but Iíve had more success with veneer

Now is a good time to try some mangos and plant what you like!

From what I gathered from commenting on the Facebook post it is a seedling of the winters variety

Excalibur had some when I was down there last month

My grandpa used to burry old oil from cars by his mango trees never seem to hurt the tree I donít recommend it because itís illegal and not ok just answering your question though  ;)

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

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
« on: August 20, 2017, 12:19:33 PM »
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.

Sweet pass your yard quite a bit amazing to see how much it has grown

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Type of soursop
« on: August 13, 2017, 07:31:36 PM »
Most soursop trees are just seedlings

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.

Someone in Idaho just posted a few days ago about their zone 6 greenhouse id reach out to them.
