Seedling Orange Sherbet Mango Tree
« on: August 07, 2022, 01:46:01 PM »
Does my seedling OS tree look the same as a grafted tree? It's supposed to be a polyembryonic variety, but the leaves seem a little delicate to me, unlike any other mango tree.



(I know it's too close to the house, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do in this seniors' community!)

Yes!  Even more so than PPK.

Thanks, Vic.  And the new leaves of your grafted trees look like this at first? https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=48319.msg467107#msg467107

My orange sherbets new leaves tend to come out light yellow.

Nope. The two I have new growth never looked like that.

Is orange sherbet a vigorous tree like VP or PPK?
Does it have a manageable growth habit?
Be very careful and mindful of what you sow, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

They say it's more manageable than PPK or LZ, but not dwarfish.  You can see how Vic's tree looks--bushy, not tall.

So what I have may not be the polyembryonic clone.  We'll see over time.  The good news is that the leaves smell citrusy.  I wanted to graft some LZ on it.  If I have to graft OS, too, so be it!
