Simon,

My Lemon Zest (thanks for the scions)  on LaVern Manilla rootstock also had heavy PM this year. Maybe we should cut off the first bloom to force a late 2nd bloom in warmer month -- May or June instead of March/April. Maha and Cat are the ones with minimum PM grafted on the same tree.

Sapote, you just have to be careful how late you want to push it because if you prune too late, it could get out on you which isnít necessarily a bad thing if your tree is still small. Normally my LZ tree will naturally flower twice a year. I mainly prune to remove the end of the branch where the previous flower panicles grew because they can harbor fungal spores.

Cat mango might be CAC/COC, I spread some scion around a while back. CAC/COC is an absolutely delicious mango that grows well here and has been disease resistant from reports I hear back from people I shared scions with.

Here's a video of a large mango tree with full size mango. It's not my tree, it located in Lakewood/Long beach area.

Thanks for the video. Is that your tree and are you sure itís on Florida rootstock?

Most of the trees that are large like that are grafted onto seedling rootstocks.

There are huge trees that Frank and I posted and most of them are seedling trees or seedling trees that were grafted.

There are Florida Turpentine rootstock trees that can get quite large. For example Valencia Pride, LZ, Sweet Tart and some of the other vigorous varieties but many of them will at least initially have a very droopy growth habit.
