Aaaah.  I was under the impression that they were related. Good to know they are not. I guess the vendor was making up the yellow/gold pirie to sell it. Our China town sell only 3 types of mango Pirie, Haden, and ďlocal mangoĒ which means any/all other mangoes. Often times they falsely label mangoes pirie which is frustrating.

Wslau, they are all locally sourced but not sure from which island. It definitely is way to early in the season, but my friends Haden and my moms white pirie both have super small early crop of about 10-20 mangoes that are presently ripening while the rest of the tree is in full bloom. Not sure why this happens. I have seen this happen with my moms white pirie before but not haden. I just had one of each the other day and They were both pretty good.

Is Pirie and white Pirie 2 different mangoes? If so how do they differ? And has anyone heard of yello or gold pirie? In China town the other day one of the venders was selling mangoes in a box listed as pirie. There were two different different types of mango in the box and when I asked what is the difference she claimed  the larger mango was white pirie while the smaller one was yellow/gold pirie and was sweeter and better in taste.

achetadomestica I havenít given them any fertilizer since they are still very young.

Iíll cut back on watering and hope they survive.

Thanks guys :)

I have 5 red Jaboticaba seeds that germinated each of which had multiple sprouts. All of the seedlings startoff fine and then the tips start to turn black and then they eventually die. I only have a few left that have not turned black...yet... I have tried soap spray on some and copper fungal spray on other but no luck so far :,( does anyone know why my guys are dying!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What mango taste closest to a Haden?
« on: January 25, 2018, 03:13:37 AM »
Growing up in Hawaii the two most popular back yard mango trees were Haden and pirie. To this day, Haden is still my favorite. I know it's dropped out in popularity, especially among you mango enthusiasts, but i can't get enough of it. I love the sweet, spicy, rich mango flavor it has and don't mind that it's fibrous.  I only have room for one mango tree and want to plant a Haden but I'm concerned about it being susceptible to disease. What mango is closest to Haden in flavor and richness yet is disease resistant? Or should I just plant a Haden....?

I did not know they are a diuretic when eaten raw. Good to know!

 Thanks for the advice. Mine haven't reached the 6" marker yet and growth has drastically slowed down. I wonder if this is why.

35
Oh phew, my germination rate isn't toooo far off the mark. Glad to hear my other seeds are still viable. Thanks :)

Yeah I too am growing it only for the baby shoots. I like to sautť it with lots of garlic and a little soy bean paste and soy sauce. It's very tender yet crunchy. Here in Hawaii our weather is nice and warm, but the older leaves on my vine are browning and wilting for some reason. They have little specks of what looks like mold almost. Not sure why :(

Any luck with the chayote? I have a few growing but the leaves have start to brown and crumble :( hope they will survive

38
What was your germination rate for the "Isan Indigo" seeds? I had a very low rate. I am pretty new to growing so I am assuming i did something wrong  :'( If I recall right I ordered the seeds Novemberish.  Do you think they are still viable or far gone?

39
Thanks for the diagnosis, looks like you guys are right. Man this sucks :( Fortunately my trees are still at a manageable size to manually remove the scales. Let the war begin...

A while back i uprooted a miracle fruit from a friends house and brought it home. On close inspection Of the sickly plant I noticed it had these tiny black bumps on itís branches and trunk. I didnít think much of it until I recently noticed a few of the same bumps on my wax jambu and soursop. I donít recall seeing them on my other plants before, but then again Iím not the most observant person so I canít be 100% sure. They are dry and pop off easily if I scratch at it.  Is this something i should worry about and treat or is it benign?

So Raul would you say a high percentage of the trees don't set fruit? If you were to guess, what percent would you say do fruit?

Sadly both Kent Vinzant and Frankie's don't sell atemoya or Rollinia  :'( I guess I'll try from seed... and invest in some bags

Oh that sucks. I wonder if I should start bagging my soursop.I only got 2 small fruit so far but they were fine. Where did you get the atemoya tree from?

I was told by local fruit nursery owner that I shouldn't waste my time trying to grow Atemoya on Oahu because we have a seed boring bug that ruins all the fruit. I know atemoya grows successfully on Big Island, but has anyone gotten it to fruit on Oahu?

48
Do you have any seeds or only seedlings?

keeping mine in mostly shade, and water a lot. keeps it happiest and lots of fruit

I keep reading contradictory information in regards to sun. Some say full sun and other say partial. Hers is in full sun which may be a beg factor but I know she hasn't taken care of the plant in the last couple years other than water it with the hose. After I told her I will transplant it she gave it coffee and egg shells. Not sure why...
