if it wasn't for the graft line I would agree but unfortunately it's just a bad tree, I should probably pull it out now that I think about it.

I would add to Khan's post above.  For avocado, I would highly recommend the Super Hass. 

For mulberry, I would highly recommend Tice.

why would you recommend Tice over the others?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / How are your trees growing right now?
« on: June 25, 2019, 06:33:31 PM »
After making a list of my trees (so I don't forget what I have) it made me wonder how stuff does in other people's yards



avocado:
catalina 2 months in ground, naturally starting to branch out 4 inches from the base
oro negro 2 years in ground, no flowers yet

canistel:
bruce 5 years in ground, never flowered. Very slow growing.

dragonfruit:
david bowie 5 years in ground, flowers but never sets
physical graffiti never gotten a flower
vietnamese jaina grows fast, every year it puts out some big fruits that don't have much flavor

guanabana:
Miami 5 years in ground, minor scale problem
2 seedlings that are 2 years old, minor scale problem

jackfruit:
r55-22 2 years in ground, 14 feet tall with a trunk as big as a street lamp post, lots of vegetative growth but it's only put out one flower
too many seedlings

mango:
honey kiss 1 year in ground set 1 fruit this year after half-flowering. The lowest maintenance tree in my yard
orange essence 2 years in ground no flowers. Not a very vigorous or pretty or disease resistant tree
sugar loaf 2 months in a flooded area. Very clean and moderately vigorous tree

passionfruit:
purple possum decent fruit, not as good as panama red but more productive. Too vigorous, but makes good mulch

sapodilla:
alano 1 year in ground. It was 8 feet long but about as thick as a pencil when I got it so I pugged it after it gave me 4 fruit that I picked too early but were still amazing. It fruits more than it grows.
molix 2 months in ground, has fruit on it now. This thing is more vigorous than my passion fruit. The leaves make it very ornamental.

white sapote:
younghans always chlorotic

Marlys Zill has a tree, looks like it's been in ground for 10+ years

Julie is great when they're not store bought

33
yeah and fiberless mangos won't survive a minor fall so if they're where you can't see them you'll end up with lots of wasted fruit

people prefer what they grew up with, so it's boring fruit or nothing at all

that's about the height I pug my trees to, you'll be fine

37
don't know about ripeness but I know putting hot sauce on your mangos is a good way to deter animals

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Location for Rollinia/Biriba tree
« on: June 16, 2019, 06:12:36 PM »
rollinias need consistent water, mine grew 14 feet and fruited after a year in the ground most likely because I planted it 2 feet from a canal where the soil is constantly wet and smells anaerobic. In the winter when the water line receded it defoliated but when I started watering it every day the leaves grew back fast and it didn't defoliate in 40 degree weather.

I usually go with some for a few

41
inside a container I'd only go for pickering maybe honey kiss

42
So which are you planning to get?  Sugar Loaf and why?  I'm having similar dilemmas picking out here in hawaii.  Thanks!

if I didn't get sugar loaf I would've gotten an m-4

sugar loaf seems to be spreading and fairly disease resistant like a honey kiss, plus it's a green mango which will deter thieves a bit

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Size of red jabo tree?
« on: June 13, 2019, 03:26:46 AM »
I forget which one the red is but

https://hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/jaboticabas.html

Jaboticaba trees are slow-growing, in M. tenella, shrubby, 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 ft (1-1.35 m) high; in M. trunciflora, 13 to 23 or rarely 40 ft (4-7 or 12 m); in the other species usually reaching 35 to 40 ft (10.5-12 m). They are profusely branched, beginning close to the ground and slanting upward and outward so that the dense, rounded crown may attain an ultimate spread of 45 ft (13.7 m).

I am in cali and really want to grow a Honey Kiss. Seems like nobody sell it here, and online only Plantogram has it for $119 non including shipping fee. By I read some bad reviews about Plantogram including the variety not true to the name.
Does anyone know where to buy honey kiss here or who will be able to ship it here?

Thanks in advance

contact pine island nursery in homestead, they're certified to ship to california

Having worked in PC research and development most of my adult life at IBM AND a RAID systems designer for HDD redundancy , I can say that HDD's can fail and lose data, some or all of it.  Also data recovery and computer repair are two completely different disciplines! Data recovery is Faaarrr more tedious, AND much more expensive.

"First thing computer repair people here do is make a complete backup of the hard drive, so nothing is lost"

And if the HDD has crashed? No recovery may be possible, Luc was lucky to get some files back.

Techs may be able to recover data but it ALWAYS 100% the responsibility of the owner to have backups, EVERY DAY!

Failing to do so and blaming a tech is completely unreasonable AND unfair.

The OP said: "I lost lots of files"

Note, not ALL, it's pretty clear the tech made a backup of what was left no?

A backup to a 128-256 gig memory stick that may cost a hundred bucks would have prevented it. Sorry for your loss but learn from it... Owner's fault, end of story.

as someone who's had the misfortune of working customer service I understand your frustration, but let's try to focus on the possibly new species instead of our PTSD

47
someone correct me if I'm wrong but from what I've gathered:

E-4 sugar loaf: pineapple/coconut flavor, green mango, mid season, slow growing spreading habit, not sure about disease resistance yet

orange essence: citrus, yellow mango, mid season, vigorous upright habit, leaves get a lot of mold during the winter but no other problems

honey kiss: traditional, red mango, slow growing spreading habit, good disease resistance

shade is good for most plants, you'll have to water less but wait longer for growth
