Come on Patrick. What kind of presentation is this?  The least you could have done would have been  to slice one or two open so we could get a perspective of the flesh color, fiber content, etc.

What's causing it, Patrick?  Boron deficiency?  Fungus?

More than likely just a natural dropping of some, or all, of its fruit set.  Mango and Avocado will drop many of its fruit that are initially set.  There is no way a tree could hold them all from initial set to maturity.

You forgot to say what cultivars those are? How do you rate them, and what is the parentage?  ;)

Almost enough for a fruit salad!

110+ fruit trees/plants; 70+ mango trees; 12 jackfruit; 6 avocado; 3 persimmon; 2 longan; and a dog that keeps raccoons and squirrels away.

Just laughing at the thought of how he would eat them...he would look like a little squirrel, nibbling each one with just his front teeth.

Small avo aborts are actually edible, but quite bland.

Put them in slingshot and shoot the squirrel who knocked them off the tree.  Mango, bullet, same difference.

Shoot squirrels with little fruits as ammo for slingshot...multipurpose fruits.  Let me know how straight each cultivar flies, and how hard or soft they are upon impact.
