Tropical Fruit Discussion / How far north are you growing Mamey outdoors?
« on: February 08, 2012, 02:22:40 PM »
I am in South Florida, Palm Beach just west of Mounts Botanical Garden.  I just planted out a three foot tall Pace Mamey and am wondering if anyone is growing Mamey this far, if not further north of me outdoors?

A topic started as a quick reference for those who are concerned that an infestation may require chemical use!

When is is time to apply these chemicals?

What will happen if you just leave the issues alone?

What happens to the beneficials when you use chemicals?

Can a yard become a self suppoting ecosystem in time that will control insect populations?

Is the Honey Bees demise being caused by chemicals?

Are home owners polluting more than huge farms?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / A Sincere Thanks..
« on: January 19, 2012, 12:45:16 PM »
I would like to extend a sincere thanks to everyone for joining and being so active in building this forum and making it into something really special.  Murahilin and I had spoke back and forth about creating this forum starting with a discussion in the elevator at HoJo's in Mayaguez PR in August of last year. Over the past few months we discussed different ways to best create a really enriched format, one that supports all types of media with a user friendly interface.  By using the basic platform SMF, we created a cost effective way to create this forum at no cost to the user.  The way I see it, murahilin's history of killing expensive plants far exceeds the cost of the forum.  We also purchased an additional domain name, to be used to create a type of one-stop source for tropical fruit enthusiasts to get opinion-free up to date information on the worlds tropical fruit "collection", with photos of leaves, tree habit, cross-sections of limbs to show cadmium layer structure, latin names, origins, pictures of the fruit, and so on.  Being that this is a very intensive list of information, we may ask members of the forum to contribute photos and manuscripts for review, editing, and final approval to be used on the database.  Any information you provide will be credited back to you, allowing everyone the chance to be part of this new website and historical venture!
