Tropical Acres Farms, Inc., (Loxahatchee Groves, FL)
« on: January 14, 2012, 11:47:50 PM »
Hello everyone, glad and thankful to be here.

A lot of you know me from gardenweb but may not know that I'm also the owner of a small tropical fruit tree farm and nursery. Its called Tropical Acres Farms, Inc. and is located in Loxahatchee Groves, FL in Palm Beach County.

I established the business in 2011. Most of my trees are still young but I anticipate my fruit availability growing as the trees mature. I mostly grow mangoes and avocados, but also have many other varieties of fruit planted. I grow with organic methods and do not apply synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.

I will be offering mangoes for sale beginning this season (May or June depending on availability) and should have avocados as well this fall. I will have shipping available also for people who would like to buy fruit but don't live in the area.

For a comprehensive list of the trees we grow, visit us on facebook and do please click "like"  :) :

I do offer shipping for trees up to 3 gallon in size. Unfortunately at this time I do not ship trees to California or Arizona.

I will try to keep this list updated as frequently as possible. In many instances I may be able to obtain something you are looking for even if I don't currently have it in stock.

We're currently open by appointment. Message me or send me an email at tropicalacresfarms@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing a tree or fruit.

It will be great having a source for local fruit.  I HATE going to a produce stand in July and finding only heat-treated mangos from other countries.

Very nice looking Edwards!  My favorite, good luck at the WPB Market.  Time to make a trip south.

 message, email, or you can call 561-358-8566. Can usually arrange a meeting somewhere convenient if/when you might be in the Palm Beach county/west palm area.

 I also ship, for those of you that aren't anywhere close.

Do you sell your mangos by the lb or charge a flat rate per fruit?

Hi Squam,

     I tried to buy a mango tree from you on FB but I can't have it shipped via FedEx. Do you use USPS? Pine has been able to ship to me just fine using USPS. Also, you have limited varieties of mangos on eBay but a more comprehensive list here on the Forum. Is this based on current availability? To purchase a specific tree not listed on eBay, should I message you instead? Hope you could shed some light on this. Thanks in advance!!

Hi Chris, the facebook store may not be working right. The list of stuff I have in-stock you see here is current. I sent you a message so check your inbox when you get the chance.

thanks

Really enjoyed the Edwards mangos, as did my boss, from Trinidad.  :)    Thanks!

Don't tell anyone, but I personally think a good Kent is just as delicious as an Edwards, though.   But maybe less consistently so.

That's fine, because I'll have Kent for sale this year too! Glad you enjoyed the fruit.

I have never had Edwards but a ripe or just past ripe Kent ranks high for me. Thankfully my own Kent tree is finally fruiting ...... there are many big ol ones around S Fl.

They better have been good for $2 a lb! Lol

I actually bought a few last week and they were pretty good. Not washed out at all. I still will fight for the sale of mango by the fruit though!

Ok, I will sell you some mangoes by the fruit...though the "by the fruit price" will be base on $2/lb.  ;) ;D :P

Taste is no different than the "regular"/"old fashioned" NDM.  The NDM Mun and NDM Saitong should have slight differences whn compared to the NDM/NDM4.

Unfortunately I can't ship fruit to California :(

Also, I'm harvesting lots of Pico (Philippine type), Young (Edward x Kent cross), and a fair amount of Duncan. Also have some 'Wester' available, which is a very nice mango.

I think Squam is making up mango names again.
