What is flowering/fruiting in your yard? Spring 2016
« on: April 08, 2016, 04:23:16 PM »
I was trying to find an old thread about this topic, but was unsuccessful so I thought I'd start anew.

Fruiting:
Manzano banana
Strawberry guava
Tropic Beauty Peach
Bradenton loquat
Surinam Cherry (either Zill Dark or Maczerzak (sp?)--forget which is which--d'oh!)
Pickering Mango
Lemon Zest Mango
Red Lime
Sunshine Blue Blueberries
Dwarf Everbearing mulberry
Unknown fig
Pigeon Peas/Gandules/Pwa Congo

Flowering:
Yellow Jaboticaba
UF Sun Peach
Nam Phet Longan
Biew Kiew Longan
Burgundy Bunch Grape
Pitangatuba
Eugenia reinwardtiana (Australian Beach Cherry)
Wurtz Avocado
Day Avocado
Amber Jackfruit (male only)
Citrus--Temple, Shiranui, Page, Dancy
Fairchild #2 Canistel
Lots of store-bought pineapples
Na Dai Sugar Apple
Moringa
Sri Kembangen Carambola/Starfruit
Mysore Raspberry
Barbados Cherry/Acerola

Most of my trees are still too young to let hold, or to be of any real significance, but I love hearing/documenting what flowers/fruits at what time of year.

My family is from Massachusetts where it snowed twice last week...haha.
Seriously though, being Floridacentric, you had me second-guessing for a minute that it wasn't officially Spring.   ;D

I used to ask my grandfather in all seriousness if he had been golfing recently...in February--lol.  Out of sight, out of mind.

PIna Colada (Zill) nunca nada nothing after v nice bloom  and producing twenty five small but delicious fruits last year

That's a YARD, not a farm? How could you possibly consume that much fruit (unless you have a huge family)? I would think the mangoes alone would bury you!  :P  [Unless they are young and you have them planted very close together so their output is low.]

We moved here 4 years ago and started  planted fruit trees before rehabing our house. So far, we have only had a surplus of bananas and passion fruit and haven't had problems getting rid of extras  ;)  Should be interesting in the years to come.

I guess you removed the flowers of the 3 mangoes because they are too young for fruiting. Did you have vegetative flushes on them since then? Because it seems you didn't wait for fruitlets forming before removing the panicles.

I see you grow pitogo.  Please keep us posted when you get the chance to try it.  What type of strawberries are you growing?

I wish I knew what varieties of strawberries we have. Our children went to Earthbox in Palmetto last fall and tasted the berries in their pre-planted boxes and purchased the boxes with the sweetest and most flavorful berries.
With the Pitogo, the fruit handled the winter very well. We lost the fruit in Blue Java and Pisang Jaribuaya, but the Pitogo fruit (and plant) look as if we had no winter at all. We live in a pocket that reached 32 for an hour one morning.

Fernandin (Goa India)
a super fast grower. It did not bloom this year, my speculation due to being cut back very hard in 2015 after harvest which was good, about 30-40 small-mid size fruits.
Coc of Vietnam has roundish mid size fruits. Very delicious.  Also it is complex, unlike Nam Doc Mai. But great bloom with low fruit yield this year. It might have production problems. If bsbullie sees this I hope he says something about coc  and consistent production year to year.

On the commercial level Florida strawberries are bland and tasteless compared to California. I ate two Florida boxes the other day 8) I attribute this to the sandy soil they are grown in, in Florida. Even a you-pick-em that used to be here had tasteless strawberries and tomatoes too! Beautiful tomatoes but tasteless. Even the small cherry tomatoes. All because they are grown on nearly 100% sand with an application of modern fertilizers.
I don't grow them but if I did, I would plant them in as rich black soil as possible. Wood chips would be a good way,

Add my first ever fully home-grown pineapple to my fruiting list!!!!  :)

And as of today, we can move Sherbet Berry/Phalsa/Grewia asiatica from the flowering list to the fruiting list! Very excited, as these will be my first!
