Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Dud Jackfruit??

Looks like it, some people buy green jackfruit as a meat substitute in recipes.
I only pick or buy them when their spikes become blunted

Keo Savoy or Brahm Kei Meu my guess

Many mangos with Indian qualities here in South Florida aren't consistent producers of quality representations of the fruit.
Thats why they recommend growing more thai style varieties here, they do better in the humid rain, they have a short season and produce bunches of fruit that ripen quickly.  Lemon meringue for example, reliable producer of consistent quality fruit that ripen early

Often times more indian type mangos ripen longer on the tree making their timing tricky.  They are susceptible to too much rain making their flavors washed out or trees that succumb to diseases from the wet season

You also need to pick and ripen them correctly depending on the variety

Adopt a rat terrier or daschaund mix.

Its a medium large vigorous tree, they probably try to sell it as dwarf because it has a dense growth habit that can be hard pruned each year after harvest to 12 feet.  It will probably be 20 foot by next harvest.

Yep, it will speed up the season.  Mango season ends here with daily rains usually in August

As long as the new growth flushes look healthy its fine, just probably part of its vigorous growth cycle

its a Lancetilla mango, so they stay on the tree long and get large

Anyone use these before? how are your results

Carrie is the best mango bar none.  Nothing is even remotely similar. 

If you like Haden types there's literally hundreds.  Carrie is a mango with an unmistakable attitude

I'd disagree.

Lancetilla is a perfect mango, similar to Edward or Valencia pride, that balance of carabao thai type and Haden floridia/indian type but IMO but much better production.  Taste is obviously subjective, but there's nothing I can point to that is bad about the fruit other than not having as much attitude as some other bolder mangos like Julie or Jakarta.  If you're a fan of Haden types like Glenn, you'll probably like Lancetilla.

To me it still has a place in the orchard or as a single dooryard tree where some older varieties should be phased out of production

Then again you may be talking for California and I'm South Florida

Palms are actually plants and their root balls stay pretty contained.

If that surprises you, you'd be shocked to see how vigorous and what conditions a mango seed can grow in down here along the rocks and rivers and in dense forests

Lancetilla is moderate upright grower, they like to make an upright canopy but don't grow straight up like Kent or other large trees.  I have a ten year old in the yard I easily keep at 20 feet with yearlt pruning and it fills out symetrically

Fruit are football sizes and excellent quality, a typical mixed mango flavor, a little sour like thai if underperipe and a sweet  floral honey like flavor from Indian types when overripe, fiberless and juicy with alot of edible flesh per fruit. 
Nice ones make really good gifts

I'll upload a pic in a bit

I am Ft Lauderdale and will travel for pups, seedlings or anything you have you might want to divide and sell or trade let me know in this thread


Also if you prune the tree, try to clear out the inside of the tree to promote airflow, this also keeps the tree clean

Try spraying organic copper after you harvest the fruit and then again in the spring before flowering so you don't upset pollinators

Fungus kinda goes dormant on the tree in the winter and festers in the spring rain once temperatures at night warm up with humidity

Spraying every few months with organic copper fungicide shoukd keep the tree clean

Musa velutina
I had these growing in my last yard
They pup like crazy, very aggressive here
The seed is like buckshot, not enough flesh to be bothered with.  Birds and squirrels love them

Marlohe, that was genius, I wonder if any fruit tree new growth would lend itself for propagation in this manner; thanks for the info.

You can probably get alot of things to root but getting them established is another ballgame. 
This only works on trees that have a spreading root structure, not trees with a taproot like mango

it would be excellent if the strange color stays...

they’re sweet low resin fruits so far...very pale.

Its like a sandalwood

This is how u grow all my fruit trees with a tap root, you can control the soil around the roots better.  I used 25 gallon plastic containers,cut out the bottom and bury them half way, it protects the trunk as well.

I think I would call you out to see who would pay $35 per fruit.  And if you truly can, you should sell every fruit that can be harvested.

People who shop here

My prime mango tree right in me front yard is Carrie bought at Lowes in North Coral Springs 2008.  Many fruits this year so spill out you negatives. I can get $35 per fruit here from Subcontinent Asians who are MDs. Carrie has this rep with them, while the small minded cry out like babies about medicinal tasting this or that.

Carrie definitely suffers from anthracnose so micro climate, pruning and copper plays a big role in production

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Loquat varieties
« on: May 15, 2021, 06:49:48 PM »
interested in picking up a single loquat tree, so it must be self pollinating. There are alot of Florida varieties that are junk imo.  Best tasting I've had so far is Oliver, but the fruit is small.  I'm looking for acid and sweet flavor and large size.  The nursery by me has a few varieties

Eds delight
Rays fav
Golden Nugget

Any of these varieties really standout?

Nothing quite tastes like a Carrie.
Its my favorite by far. 
Its ripe when you can twist it off the tree, there's no color change
Once you get a mature tree with a decent crop set its not hard to figure out.

Its not really an eating mango, its meant to be a flattering gift.  A symbol of status
