Excellent photos, everything is looking great.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

I harvested a Lemon Zest that was slightly bigger than a jujube, does that count? Actually it fell off  ;D

Great looking trees all around, that Mexican seedling fruit sure looks like a Keitt. Probably from a Mexican grown Keitt I bet

That Edwards tree looks to be 12-15 feet tall.  Does that sound right?  Any idea how old it is?

Hey JF, how's the production on your Edwards? I'd love to pick up an Edwards but I'm worried about low production.

My Edwards has done NOTHING to date and it's about a thick 5 foot by foot tree - it probably gets one more year
before getting the graft over!

Who knows, it might be its location or its too hot out here......

PS - JF - you  got the BEST camera, dude!

I like the cluster of corriente mangos. I'd like to a mango cluster like that on a few of my trees. I think only smaller size mangoes cluster like that.

they are smaller, about the size of an Okrung. I pulled one off last week but they weren't ready they have to sweeten up some more.

I missed you questions about the Edward. The tree is 8 years old. It is near 15 feet tall, it's a vigorous grower. Like in Florida it's a shy bearer with a crop of 15 to 25 fruits per year in the last 2 years. This year it flowered early, in January, and a second time in March. The first crop was in early Aug. and when I pick up my 3 fruits last week it had a total of 6 mangos left.

Don't give up on the Edward or Timotayo. This year crops were excellent.
