OK.

I wonder how much variation you need in the name in order for it to not constitute trademark infringement.  If you just added a space in between sweet and heart or maybe pluralized it "sweet hearts"?

I've got 4 to 6 fruits growing on my black gold.

The damage was from the dry, cold wind and the strong cloudless sun that followed the morning after. Even though we only got to about 40F, I also had leaf damage to several of my mango trees. However, out of the couple hundred or so potted mango trees I have here, the only ones that showed a pattern of damage were the 3 and 7 gallon nam doc mai #4 trees.  The other cultivars were hit and miss (eg, 1 lancetilla out of several, 1 pina colada out of several, etc) despite being located in close proximity to one another. None of my couple dozen potted coconut cream trees showed any signs of damage.

One of the most important things is to do in these cold, windy events is to water the hack out of your younger/potted trees just before and right after. The dry wind really beats them up. Zill's HPP had heavy damage to a row of in ground mango trees when they got down to 32F last year because they hadn't been watered well enough. It looked like someone walked through with a flamethrower on just that one row.

OK. So, does that mean that we can call it 'Sweet Heart' (with a space) and not be subject to the trademark?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: What type of pest control do you use?
« on: January 14, 2012, 02:24:54 PM »
For in-ground trees, I'd just ignore the scale problem. It's seasonal and 'usually' doesn't harm the tree in any significant way. There was one year where a massive scale infestation did cause some damage to my carambola, defoliating the tree and killing off tender shoots. However, for the most part, the trees can deal with it. There's no really "good" pesticide to use. Oils burn the tender growth and malathion / sevin cause collateral damage. And, systemics are obviously a bad idea for fruit trees :-).

For trees that I'm selling, I have to break down and use some form of pest control (usually sevin). But I try to spray it over a concrete surface to minimize environmental impact.
