Calusa,

Deficiencies of Zinc and Copper.

THANK YOU!

Let me try a 3rd time to get a response.

Hello - My young mango trees don't appear to be putting out typical robust new growth since I removed the blooms a couple of months ago. The first photo shows the Maha Chanock, with one new growth appearing only a couple of weeks after I removed the blooms, but is stunted. It's been that size for over a month. The 2nd photo shows the growth buds that began appearing a month ago. They are very slow to pop out.




The next photos show my Glen Mango with some peculiar growth -  one photo shows one new growth growing downward, the others just very tiny and weak looking. Maybe I'm a overly concerned but need some opinions. I have fertilized these trees with a good mango/citrus fertilizer with micronutrients, and keep them watered in between the infrequent rains in West Central Florida this Spring.

I'm in 10A - as we approach Summer what temperature range is the cutoff for using oils, and can soaps be used during the hottest part of the hyear?

They are calling these Imperial gems but they look like Marsh seedless to me. You could ask them.

I got a few blooms on my Minneola I planted during the Summer.

The nodules that started getting bigger a month ago on my Maha Chanock turned out to be blooms. They're getting snipped off because the tree is only about 5' tall and was planted this past Summer. Maybe next year I can leave a few intact.

If I just knock those off will the branch continue to push growth buds there, or should I cut lower on the branch?


10
Here's what's on my mango tree. These look like a flush of growth to me.






11
My understanding is there will need to be new stem/branch growth following any pruning before I can expect a panicle from said stem/branch, so any new growth I see directly after pruning cannot be flowers. Is that the correct understanding?

My Lemon Zest branch prompting the question is below. It was pruned just a little late and is pushing currently. Iím telling myself thereís no way itíll be panicles, but the growth looks so promisingÖ


So, is what's pictured growth buds or bloom buds? I have the same pointed nodules on my Maha Chanock and lately they've gotten bigger.

12
Tangelo, Tangerine, Grapefruit come to mind.

13
For the flower and veggie mix they specifically say it is safe for food growing. But that doesn't appear on the outdoor indoor (which seems better suited to fruit trees). Is the outdoor indoor still food safe?

That's a good question. Reading the back of the bag doesn't reveal any ingredient that would be harmful to humans.

I got 3 of these delivered yesterday as well as one of the 14-14-14. Great deal!

I have a Maha that did same since Spring. 

I have a young Maha that has those little growth nubs too since mid-Summer. The tree did have a couple of good growth flushes prior to that however.

It's a young tree and I'm patient.

If I were in your location I would preventatively use oak leaf tea on your tree:

Countryboy that's a really interesting piece of information. I don't have any oks but my neighbors do.

Gonna go rake some up tomorrow! Thanks

I fear that the responses will not be good news regarding a new condition that I noticed yesterday on my young Minneola Tangelo. I think it's citrus greening but before I dig up this tree I would like to hear from people who know. Here are photos of the leaves. Thanks

You are correct - the market powers that be want commercial shipping and shelf life over quality and flavor. Same with many hybrids especially tomatoes and other produce items. I guess that's one reason why so many of us grow our own fruits and vegetables.

Thanks for the link - I sent them a message asking if they could retail a box or two my way. I'll check with Sprouts too.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for Jonathan Apples
« on: August 15, 2021, 10:59:53 PM »
I know this may be a somewhat odd request for this forum, but do any of the more northern US members have a source for me to order true Jonathan apples? I have been unable to find them locally for years and it's my favorite eating apple. The best I've had came from Virginia, and some really good ones from Michigan.
The hybridized apples in grocery stores here in Florida are absolutely bland and tasteless.

If anyone knows where I can mail order some of these great apples please let me know. Thanks!
