Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / What kind of bug is this on my mango tree

Sounds like he found a few trees someplace and decided to make up a name and guess what they are a cross of..... FTG

I'd put it just below the graft line

Can we ban bsbullie?

Can we ban you?

Have you ever grown pitangatuba?  Seen ripe fruit?  Know its texture and fragility of it when ripe?  Jyst how would it lend itself to a commercial market (I am not even going to discuss the masses do not support fruit if this tartness)?  Do you even know what you are talking about or just spewing garbage?

Comparing it mango is ludicrous.

If you want to go at it, just be prepared. .

bsbullie for the win!...... watch out W. you fixin to be schooled, boy

Paintball gun, I've never seen a painted squirrel in my yard.... it's also great target practice with ammo prices as high as they are... gotta stay sharp 

Those prices seem a bit high, but I don't know the market in GA like I do in South Florida

Denise mango

What is that?

Sounds like a sapling someone grew and gave it a name we have a few up here but like Walter Zill said in his video. It's fine and dandy that people are proud of their trees but him and his brother have probably destroyed hundreds  of better trees. There is one locally in my area that is a sapling of Bombay with no fiber and Mild resin and Spice. I do not want to step on anyone's toes so that's about all I'm going to say but I would like to try it

Trust me, I know Walter extremely well.

Problem with naming and touting a seedling, or even propagating it is that it needs to be proven.  It should be monitored for years, and propagated to determine what its offspring will produce.  Between Walter and Gary, there have been many seedings that were great the first couple years and then crashed and burned (ala Yi Xaun) and there are other varieties in the total opposite boat (Honey Kiss amongst others come to mind).

Rob, I love my Honey Kiss

Mine is planted in ground about 30% direct sun 10% filtered sun and 60% shade, planted it out in 2016 as a 3 gal tree, today about 6 x 6 and flowered once, no fruit as of yet. very happy with its growth rate.
I'm hopeful the fruit is worth the wait.
also have a luc's Garcinia, seed grown 2012, 7 foot tall, no flowers or fruit as of yet! same lighting as Achacha

The difference between the large seed and the small seed is........................................... with the small seed you get more FRUIT!

Thanks in advance

bsbullie, why even try to help people.... that the sorriest looking 15 year old Miracle tree I have ever seen! in fact it's a miracle it lived that long with the shitty care it's given!

And that's all it's going to do is grow, I had a tree in my yard for 15 plus years and it fruited maybe a hand full of times with 1 or 2 fruits if I was lucky each time it fruited

If you plant that VP in the ground make sure it's in a place it has A LOT of room to grow, maybe the most vigorous mango trees out there, if you think you can prune it to keep it small and still get fruit, you'll be like the 1000's before you and fail! it truly is a beast of a tree

                 Good Luck

Does anyone know what this is?

Any update from the state of what to do with your trees?

I know Fairchild is not a Zill tree but a great little mango and a small compact footprint, Honey kiss is a awesome mango, compact footprint, guava is an amazing mango..... lots to choose from...  I can tell you that you do not want a VP or a LZ if your looking for small compact trees... those 2 trees alone will take up all your space within 4-5 years left unchecked.

                  Best of luck with your selections

You can also look at the field marks, the yellower or darker usually the riper the melon
