No damage at all, including my Carrie, Nam Doc Mai and Mahachanok.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Found on My Kent Tree This Morning

Picked it this morning before the squirrels got to it. Weighed in at 3.2 lbs. Yum!

Check the Tropical Fruit buy, sell and trade section.

I currently have a tree full of Kents that are as good, if not better, than
any other variety I have eaten.

Thanks Weboh. Jene usually has a nice variety of mango trees brought in
for the event.

Here are my Carries. Size is similar as well as the yellow coloring; however, I have never seen
a pink blush on mine. The second photo is for comparison of the leaves.

Received mine a few days ago and 3 of then have already germinated.

Itís a variety of black mulberry, I donít think the leaves are bigger then normal though

I have a Shangri La and the leaves are much bigger than my Everbearing and Pakistani.

Carries are quickly ripening. This was my best year of the past 4 or so as it has about 50 mangoes on it. My
Kent is full but won't be ready for at least a month. Maha Chanok should be ripe in a few weeks. Nam Doc Mai
had about 50 mangoes on it but just about all of them grew in bunches, much like bananas. Needless to say, the
panticles could not support them and slowly but surely, all fell off until only one was left on each panticle. My
Haley's Comet is blooming...hope to see some fruit.

Do we have a bromance here?   ;D

Very nice!

COCONUT CREAM-brighter green,wider,less frequent wave

LEMON ZEST-skinnier,very wavy,longer,paler green,curving upward at edges

Here's my Maha

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Seeds shipped into US

It's hit or miss.

Hi, I got these plants from Misiones this week. The seller said that cabeludinha is m. glazioviana, from seeds from Brazil, and that the fruits has a lot of pulp and very sweet... it sounds good, what do you think, do they look like m. glomerata or m. glazioviana?

And this achachairu or pacurŪ: she said the fruits are orange (not yellow as another native species) and very sweet too, would it be garcinia humilis like she believe?

The achachairu in your photo is identical to my garcinia humilis (which is young and hasn't fruited yet).

Has anyone seen this site ?

they say they ship to the USA.
i am sending them an email to get pricing.
it may be cheaper to get a group order going ?
i really want 1 or 2 (they have different varieties)
"black-peak" looks interesting...

Please keep us posted when they reply.

unless its very expensive i will probably order.

At first sign of give when squeezed firmly with tip of thumb. Might take a little trial and error.


How do you tell when it's time to pick? Is there any blush showing and is the fruit hard or have a little
give to it when squeezed?

Thank you!

Don't pan a mango until you've had it over multiple seasons and at varying stages of ripeness. It took me about 3 years before I finally figured out MC's sweet spot. Now, it's one of my favorites.

The trick with many of the SE asian mangoes is to eat them a little green, where the flavor profile is a complex mix of sweet and tart. Eat them fully ripe, and the experience can be disappointing for the typical North American palate.

Along with NDM, Maha Chanok is one of the most over rated mangoes IMHO.  Maybe if you like "one note" asian mangoes you might like it.  But both myself & friends didn't give it a good score for flavor in a mango tasting & comparison session.  A lot of people seem to think it's great tho.  If only they tasted as good as they look.

Here's a photo of my Nangka Mini Jackfruit tree that I planted  in 09/15 from seeds
purchased from Maryoto. It stands 5 1/2' tall and if memory serves me, Maryoto said
it takes about 4-5 years to fruit.
