I know Fairchild is not a Zill tree but a great little mango and a small compact footprint, Honey kiss is a awesome mango, compact footprint, guava is an amazing mango..... lots to choose from...  I can tell you that you do not want a VP or a LZ if your looking for small compact trees... those 2 trees alone will take up all your space within 4-5 years left unchecked.

                  Best of luck with your selections

You can also look at the field marks, the yellower or darker usually the riper the melon

Funny. Other side of the city here and my NDM is also a topwork candidate this year. This is the 2nd year in a row that it set very few fruit (maybe a dozen) and, as of a few days ago, it dropped every single fruit (not little nublets but medium sized fruit). So we're going on 2-3 years of no fruit and we don't even like the flavor.

My NDM #4 is productive, but I have topworked it because I (like many others on the forum) am not a big fan of the flavor. Have Taralay, Orange Essence and Himasagar grafted onto the tree. Taralay is the most productive of the three, but I like OE in terms of flavor.

Taralay is one of my favorite mangoes...... Honey Kiss is a huge producer and fruit is top notch

What going on with my lime tree? Please any help to get her back in shape!

Is this the time of year to trim Lychee? South Florida area

Spykes Nursery on griffin has some and we all know the great people up in lake worth Excalibur Fruits has them.... i'm sure many other options out there just gotta look for them

They look like a million little bugs but they do not move. I can wipe them right off and it leaves a little yellow spot on the fruit

and it tastes like?


First tree is 6-7 years old. Was severely trimmed following Irma.  Second tree is about 3.

If I could keep it around 12 feet I got room! Do you need a grafted tree or is one you pickup at the nursery good?

Johnb51 can you post a few pics of your trees so i can see how they look and if one would fit into my landscape
