Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Sweet Tart Mango Tree On Ormus....
« Last post by pineislander on Today at 03:49:44 PM »
I'm very excited to back off on the Chemical fertilizer, that don't mean I would never use them , But if my trees continue to thrive with the Ormus , than that's all I will feed them ..

Don't fool yourself, what you are making IS a fertilizer made of chemicals. For the plants (not to drink,please) you should try making lye yourself out of hardwood wood ashes (potassium hydroxide instead of sodium hydroxide) and you will be helping them get that essential nutrient.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Passiflora spacing

I used one plant to cover my 20x10 nursery for shade. In 18 months the roof is ready to collapse from the weight (I would estimate it at 200+lbs, maybe more). I did not plan for it to weigh so much.

How tight is the fence? How much wind do you get?  Wind gusts are going to cause the fence to act like a sail. If I remember right you are at the top of a hill. If its built solid it should not be a problem.

Passiflora grows very quickly, and will easily support 20+  feet in either direction. The weight has an issue, and if trees are close to the fence it will crawl over the neighboring trees slowing suffocating them.

Constant maintenance and trimming too.  Loves water, lots of water.

I think you could get by with 2 plants on each end. If you decided not to have passion fruits anymore, they could be a pain to clean up though.

Glad you stayed positive even with green mangos! Tried Pineapple Pleasure for the first time myself recently & I hope u enjoy it as much as I did! 😁 May be "old" to some but now some green horns like us are starting to try them. Would be willing to help next time you can't make it when they open. You could've gone by Tropical Acres Farms, they have GREAT mangos too!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Passiflora spacing

Ive got 100ft of 6ft tall fence I am going to put passion fruit on.  I picked up a few different ones at the nursery and the spacing recommendation is different on each one ranging from 6ft to 15ft spacing.

What do you guys think?  Depends on the variety or they pretty much all get the same size?  Am I going to regret planting these things for any reason?

There are different varieties of Sugarloaf pineapples some are smooth leaf and some are rough leaf meaning
thorns running down the leaves. one of them is a golden pineapple and one of them is a white pineapple
both are really good depends on what you like

I'm on vacation right now but will be back home just as you begin selling scions. I can't wait I'm making my list now 😊  I missed out the last couple of times but want to make sure I get my order in early this time.
