Are any of you guys still fertilizing/drenching/foliar feeding?

I will defer to the wisdom of others. It seems like a product similar to this would be good for inducing mango flowering? I would think if applied in the early fall every other year ???

You can apply potassium and micros if you want.
Also spray sulfur to prevent PM would be a good idea, same goes for copper.

That being said, i hardly get a chance to do any of that, hopefully this year

2019 was very windy and rainy to as I remember we were at Bradenton Beach. Did not get as cold as forecast last night thank goodness and they are revising forecast for tonight but I will still go through the drill.

I havent seen any revisions or talk of revising tonight's forecast.  Forecast low has been teetering between 37-38 here in Wellington for days and showing no change

The forecast out of HoloPaw was 33 but has been revised to 35 but they may not be the most accurate

Its about 10:30 pm and temperatures is about 41 up in Jupiter Farms.
I expect we will be in the 30s just before sunrise.

Yeah they say the low of 34 in my area but they just sent out a freeze advisory for 31 in some areas of my County

If need be I will turn on the dryer vent around 4  am that should take care of the Pickering and the Dwarf Hawaiian

In my area a low temperature of 36 degrees seems to be the consensus of three different sources. Once again the tradition of beetle meteorological forecasting proves to be the most accurate.lol

Time for a nap :) :) :)

Of my 32 varieties, 9 are showing bloom, another 8 are pushing buds that will probably be bloom and the rest are still dormant. The first tree to bloom was Rosigold, followed by Nam Doc Mai, Fruit Punch, Edward, Bailey's Marvel, Sugar Loaf, Angie, Honey Kiss & Sweet Tart. Looking at photos of my trees on Christmas day, 2019, the bloom was several weeks earlier last year which is surprising since this year it seems cooler.

Ya, roughly a half bloom.

I think this is our permanent new reality. Partial blooms/divided crops, because we just canít get enough consecutive days of cool weather to stimulate a full bloom.

Hoping for a cold January.

Baileys Marvel has bloomed first in my yard. A Nom doc Mai next door is blooming nicely. All of the Haden/Haden seedlings in my neighborhood are just starting to push out panicles.

Iíve had 3 frost so far here in Highlands county, some burned leaves but no dead branches. So far my OS is the only one with visible flowers and the rest are just getting visible buds.

I'm seeing some partial blooming on trees around the Sarasota coastline, but nothing like what I saw last year after the first cold snap. Trees that were in full bloom last year after that one haven't pushed a single panicle yet. Maybe last year's multi-crop season took too much out of them, them seem stingy with the buds. I think they wanted to take this year off...

I'm just starting to see bloom in Miramar.  Jehangir is my first in flower this year.  Julie, Number 11, Banganapalli and Mahmood Vikarabad are also also sending out spikes, but not as profusely as Jehangir.  Nothing showing on the rest yet.

Fairchild BG has grafted No. 11 and I imagine others do as well.

I thought I had replied already, but I don't see it, so apparently I hallucinated that.  Number 11 is grafted.  Scions were sourced from USDA.  I have 2 branches on a multi-grafted tree.  Sorry for the late response :-(

My M-4 and a mystery tree from Top Tropicals are pushing what appears to be mixed blooms.

At least one of the ďNumber 11Ē trees in the Dade county collections (not sure if itís Fairchild/USDA) is a fraud.

This is not the real Number 11:

NDM #4 beginning to panicle here in St. Pete. It better set some fruit after previous dud years, or the chainsaw is coming out. Pickering, Angie, Providence, Honey Kiss and Fairchild are showing signs of buds developing, but it will probably be a week more before the panicles emerge. We're a couple of weeks behind the folks in South Florida.

Guava, Kesar, and NDM4 pushing now. More on Sugarloaf. Glenn and OS look to be starting as well.

Paid a chunk to have 2 palm trees chopped and 2 more trimmed, so lots more sun for some shy fruiting trees that were too shaded.

Have a feeling its going to be a sweet mango season.
