Internal Breakdown in Honey Kiss Mango
« on: August 06, 2019, 09:33:33 AM »
I've never had internal breakdown in any other mango I've grown.  It's showing up in my Honey Kiss mangoes.  Is anyone else experiencing this with HK?

I didn't see much of a practical nature in this scientific paper except a brief mention of Ca deficiency as a possible cause or contributing factor, but thank you.

It was a failed try of a beginner advising a pro :)
I hope you will find a better solution!

No, Iím not a pro. Just an amateur gardening hobbyist.  I will give the tree more calcium.  Thanks for reminding me of that.

Easy solution.

Just top work the HK over to everyone's favorite Pickering.

Problem solved!

Where ya been, Sammmy? I already have Pickering. The purpose of HK was to have a later mango. Iíll give it additional Ca next year if I havenít moved. Iím thinking all the rain is probably having an effect also.

This is a picture of my seedling Ivory itís large, fiberless and has a very complex Indochinese resin profile falling somewhere between p-22 and mahachanok, also is later season (pic taken 7/28/19) but has terrible issue with internal breakdown in the fruit. Have posted on here before a pdf of mango problems and fixes will have to search it out again. Itís most likely due to calcium deficiency and ways to supplement calcium are gypsum (PH neutral) and oyster shell (increases ph). Phi at Zills recommended I use oyster shell and I see tractor supply sells it in ft pierce, but Iím going to check my soil PH first and then decide ......on my to do list when back from vacation.
