Sorry Fruitscapes didnít work. I was there a few weeks ago and they had 2-3 small 3g Tikals left that I saw. I picked one of them up.

No to coconuts but yes to guava. Average low is probably 32-35 most years with a mid 20s Nightly low every 10 years or so. Two closest nurseries are Kerbys and Rivers of Provision

I bought a large 3g grafted one from Fruitscapes last fall, they had grafted maybe 20-30 of them. I believe the original budwood was from John Painters. Not sure on taste but seems to be growing well in zone 10

Anyone know if Zills Tropical persimmon is the same as their South Florida persimmon variety?

Fruitscspes had 20 or so grafted 3 gallon ilamas a month ago. I believe they were Guillermo.

Can anyone help with an ID? Unsure on age, probably 15 feet tall, not sure if itís edible. Thanks

My observation from having to work this hurricane (Saturday AM - Monday PM, 60 hours) after driving through the streets of St Pete early Monday morning, which is loaded with mature fruit trees.

Lots of mature Oak trees down, but there are thousands growing so proportionally not that bad.
A few large Avocado trees down
A few Jacaranda trees down
Zero mango trees down
Zero Lychee trees down

Overall from what I gathered the mature avocado trees seemed to struggle more with this Category 2 hurricane than the mangoes and lychees

Yup, don't know much about
Ceiles (something)
Diamond (maybe a different one)

That's awesome that he's growing orange sherbet

Ceci Love mangoes were available a few years ago at Fairchilds Mango Festival

There is a mango from Israel, I believe named Magshimim.  This photo was from Fruit and Spice Park's Tropical Fruit event this year.

I saw an E-8 Sabre mango the other day as well. The nursery owner, who gets all his mangoes from Zill did not know anything about it, either did the woman who answered from ZHPP. The yellow tag said E-8 Sabre. I looked on the Internet and the only info I could find was a seller on eBay with this variety and pictures of it too.

Well I am in New Tampa, not far from Wesley Chapel and it's been 3 years since we've had a temperature of 32 degrees or below. We usually have a few nights around 35 degrees during the winter season. Although we did have a few nights of 28 degrees around the 2010/2011 winters.  Have you considered buying in St Pete? That city is the definition of a microclimate. Lots of massive mango trees

As far as Tampa Bay nurseries Jenes in St Pete, Kerbys in Brandon in that order.

If you can make it Saturday, Mustang Flea Market in Pinellas Park has a huge Asian vendor section out back( to the west of the main flea market) you'll find tons of homegrown lychees, mangoes, jackfruit, Canistel... Also a few venders sell fruit trees mostly mangoes

I'd pair up Jenes and the flea market if I were you.

Kerbys. Lots of tropical fruit trees and it's 10 minutes off I75 in Tampa on your journey.

I was curious if anyone had a guess on the type of mango tree pictured. I don't know that much about it other that it is located in St. Pete, about 20 feet tall, the fruit are quite large, kidney bean shaped, and starting to have a pink/ red blush on the shoulders. The building where it is planted was completely gutted and remodeled in 2008, not sure if the landscaping was as well. The tree is located about 1/4 mile from Jene's Tropicals so I would assume if it was purchased there it could be any number of varieties since she has a large rotating inventory of mangoes. As a novice to tropical fruit I would guess Valencia Pride, any thoughts
