I know it is still early for soursop but wondering if anybody would be willing to sell me one in South Florida.

Where did you pick up the mango? I'd love to try it! It was part of Zill's program. I believe it is a seedling of Edward

My Angie tree is still small so I got the disease resistant info from Alex's description from Tropical Acres as well as searching this forum. Haven't heard of anybody having a horrible time with the tree in terms of diseases. Maybe you are thinking of another dwarf, ice cream, which is known to have issues with disease/fungus.

Hi Ed,

If you are looking for a semi-dwarf, sweet mango that is resistant to anthracnose and bacterial black spot, I recommend an Angie.

The pigs come through according to my neighbors, although I haven't seen any yet. I have heard that the rabbits and peacocks are the bigger issue though so I might focus on keeping those out of the garden for now

I believe that Fruit scapes and Stanley's are selling mangos right now. But I would call beforehand to make sure

Happy Saturday!

I am in the process of putting a garden on my property. I hastily purchased several sweet potato slips online but will not have the garden bed ready when they arrive, so I was going to put them straight into the ground. I live in Bokeelia, FL where there are wild pigs, rabbits, and peacocks that ravage through gardens. Do any of you have any suggestions for a cheap fence or net that I can use to keep the critters out? Once I have my first sweet potato harvest, I was planning on taking slips and putting them in the garden bed where I will have a better setup, but for now would prefer something on the cheaper side.

I appreciate any help!

Thank you, Har!

I was struggling with the same question about varieties. I don't have any guanabana trees yet because I was trying to find a superior variety and where I can get it but it is hard to find a lot of information about different varieties. I've read that there are sweet varieties and some that are not, so I wanted to make sure I got a sweet one. I think most nurseries just list them all as "guanabana"

I had to cut my potted moringa tree down to basically just looking like a stump. No leaves. I needed to do this because it grew weird and I needed to transport it to my other property. I put the "stump" in the ground and within a week there were leaves coming out. It was incredible how that tree can come back. I don't think you will have an issue.


I am looking to get a soursop (Guanabana) tree for my property in Lee County, FL (Zone 10a) but I am not finding a lot of information on different varieties. I’ve read that some varieties are sweet and others are not, so I wanted to make sure that I get a variety that is sweet. I would really appreciate information on some varieties and where I can buy that variety of tree.

Thank you in advance!
