4 weeks ago I began applying weekly copper to the new buds on this PPK.  We had several days of temps down to 35 degrees followed by heavy rain. In the last 2 weeks most of the buds that I sprayed have turned brown but the PPK has the leaf changes shown here and the dead flowers.  I thought most of the copper had been washed off by the rain which was heavy for Southern California. I see similar bud damage on most of the trees that I sprayed except  Sein ta Lone and a few others. The copper was pretty dilute - only 3ml of concentrate per quart.  I am in California, Zone 9b/10a.  Any thoughts?

Thanks.

I will have seedlings in a couple months. I am also heading to the Amazon soon for another expedition and Cupui is on the hunt list.

Thank you Joe, i'll keep a look out.  Is there a specific day of the week when you post new arrivals or is it random.  BTW seeds came in 2 days ago, thank you again.  Highly Recommended  :)

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Durian planting
« Last post by TropicalFruitHunters on Today at 12:59:14 AM »
I've been seeing more videos like this in Thailand recently.  They plant 3 trees together in a triangle to make the trees less susceptible to wind damage as well as to have branches criss-cross to help enhance pollination efforts...having different trees close by with different pollen.  I thought it was pretty interesting.  Techniques are always evolving.

This first video is a good overview of durian cultivation in Thailand.  About midway thru, it talks about the three trees method.

This vid is pretty much all 3-tree method.

I realize its personal preference but which tastes better, yellow or blue?

As far as I know, I am the only person to have germinated seeds and grown them out in the US. I personally only have one plant in the ground that's barely 2 years old. My contact has not been talkative this year... not sure what's going on. I'll let you know if I hear from them.

Oh nice that's exciting that you've got one going! Thank you, I super appreciate it!

Hi Har,

Iím going a mango plant from seed. Started growing it in July of 2022. This past month, the leaves at the top have started gaining these black spots on the edges and have slowly moved downward.
I thought it was anthracnose so I started spraying it with a copper fungicide weeklyÖ.it still seems to be spreading.
What am I doing wrong?? Any idea what this is? Iíve already lost 3 leaves and it feels like Iím about to lose another!!!
