Very useful info.  Thank you.

I'm hoping the next 10 days or so will kick my Sweet Tart in gear.  Looks like I should get 50s over the next consecutive 10 nights.  Fingers crossed.

...WIND CHILL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 9 AM EST WEDNESDAY... * WHAT...WIND CHILLS ARE FORECAST TO RANGE FROM THE MID 20S TO MID 30S. * WHERE...ACROSS SOUTH FLORIDA. * WHEN...TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A WIND CHILL ADVISORY MEANS THAT VERY COLD AIR AND STRONG WINDS WILL COMBINE TO GENERATE LOW WIND CHILLS. THIS WILL RESULT IN FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA IF PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN. IF YOU MUST VENTURE OUTDOORS, MAKE SURE YOU WEAR A HAT AND GLOVES. &&

36.7f (2.6c) and dropping here.  We got down to 36.0f (2.222c) and at 6:30 started going back up to 36.1  Oh well thatís alright bigger and better trees for next year.  On to the lychee, annonas, with plenty of other fruits to focus on.  Iím very curious to see whatís happened with all our little mango fruitlets and flower buds.  Hopefully we have a healthy population of the plant growth promoting hormone generated by the bacterium Pseudomonas putida which can generate antifreeze substances inside the plant.  Just another reason why our sole focus is on soil health.  Brrrrr I hate the cold.

5:30pm after we received about 3Ē rain @ 55f /12.777c everything looks the same as before.  The uncut biodiverse look has grown on me and I couldnít imagine it any other way...plant, plant, plant cover.  Thankfully it is still glowing prettily and prettily glowing.🐸

Question about distribution of flower spikes :
Healthy mature tree in Orlando area fruited for first time last summer. 
Two branches have been in bloom for three weeks,
which gave me to think that other braches would show at least something by now.
What is usual, with regard to the appearance /non-appearance of spikes all over a tree?

Plenty of fruit on our trees.  No problems from 36f.

I live in Pinellas (9ab). Lemon Zest flower every year, however, my Maha Chanok have not flower yet. (3-4 year graft). The leaves and branches are quite large, could it be a Maha?

What could it be?
prune too late? (Around August)
too cold? upper 30s to 60s at night.
do I need to fertilize?

Any suggestions are appreciated.

How long the wait? my tree about 8-10ft, trunk about 4-5inch diameter. I'm thinking to chop it down if it not blooming soon.

Mahas arenít precocious trees and usually take at least 3 years to start flowering.

Post a pic of your Maha tree. I'm in St. Pete and we got a hard freeze on Jan 18, 2018 and it wiped out all blooms. Of the 2 Mahas in my yard, only 1 tree reflowered and fruited that year.
My Mahas were planted in 2013 (first fruited 2015) and 2014 (first fruited 2017) as 7 gals. Your tree may just be taking a little longer (as Alex suggested above). However, with a 4-5 in diameter trunk, that tree should be fruiting. Curious.

Angie and Pickering have blossomed lightly this year.  Maybe because they had such a heavy crop last year?  Providence had a few blossoms for the first time.  I'll instruct the new owners to have this tree top-worked, especially if it falls prey to MBBS.  (Yes, new owners.  My house sold in one day at full asking price!)

Congratulations.

Real estate market in south Florida is crazy. Anything within reason is gone tomorrow, especially if thereís any yard space.

Probably hit or miss with Providence from everything I've been told.  I hope they get lucky and get good fruit.  Kent still produces good fruit for some people although usually very susceptible to MBBS.

My first flowering is mostly a bust.
Rain, cold and perhaps a disproportionate rate of male flowers.  I am not sure which but lots of the flowers are drying and dropping off.

A couple of trees appear to have set some fruits though but still way too small to determine if they will stay on. One more really cold night on tap tonight and that may be it for that bunch.

Now hoping the cold is enough to induce a second flush or get the trees that have not flowered yet, to.

Anyone else experiencing same?

Yes, my Kent flowered great but seeing the same as you (no fruit at all). The Haden had about 1/4 of the tree blooming
with tons of little fruit, hoping the rest of the tree will bloom. The carrie and glen are the same, about 1/4 of the tree bloomed. The carrie is just now starting to push blooms on the other 3/4 of the tree.

Same here, all the moisture and this cold night should be the end of that first bloom. Itís fortunate only one tree bloomed.
Donít rush, take time and enjoy life and food.

Bloom has been OK but spotty. Fruit set has been good. The bad news is that I'm already seeing MBBS, along with anthracnose. We had too much rain this winter. Could be a bad year, high disease pressure -- the opposite of last winter.

Curious to hear @Squam256's report on disease issues this season.

We need to find something that's effective against MBBS. I was going to try that Phyton 35, but the instructions require posting of signs if one is using it within 300 feet of a residential area and carries the Warning signal word. I might give copper oxide + agri mycin a shot.

There's a new product on the market called Revysol, which received EPA "Reduced Risk" status. Not labeled for mango, but would be interesting to try on MBBS.

Spotty bloom in merritt island so far but this cold spell should fix that. Carrie in my yard had a full bloom but seems to have failed to set any fruit, so disappointing. Ill have to check around the other Carries but I think they are all going to be the same.

My Carrie blooms failed woefully as well.

It was a heavy flowering, not sure if it was the rain and cold or just a lot of males.  Carries are reported to make a lot of male flowers sometimes.
