I have a seedling avocado with rounded leaves and am looking for info on identifying the genetic heritage of this type of avocado.

Thank you,

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Pruning Moringa

Can you prune moringa too low where it won't grow back. I pruned moringa back in November to 3 inch stubs above the ground. It hasn't pushed any new shoots. Now seems like the time new shoots should begin here in San Diego. Do you think I killed it?

Anyone have fresh cocoa seeds or vanilla vine cuttings to ship to Hawaii?

Thank you,

I agree that lack of heat can contribute to the yellowing and crinkly leaves. I believe itís actually a combination of the cold weather and fungal diseases. In the Winter, I always have some trees that yellow a bit and have some fungal damage.

It is usually the mango trees that had a late vegetative growth or that didnít harden its growth flush before the cold weather that gets the yellow leaves with burnt edges that are often crinkly.

Foliar sprays with micro/trace nutrients have not helped in my yard during cold weather. I usually just leave the tree alone until it warms up. Around June-August, sometimes beginning a little earlier and ending a bit later, we get our best vegetative flushes and you should time your fertilization regimen to maximize growth during those months.


Thank you Simon

Yes, there can be root infections by fungus or bacteria, promoted by overly soggy soil.  This reduces nutrient uptake.

Also likely is nutrient tie-up, by overly fresh mulch in heavy quantity, or by plant-suppressive substances in the leaves in the mulch.  Some trees, such as Black Walnuts, are very successful at preventing other kinds of plants from growing in the Black Walnut's leaf litter.

Your plants' leaves are showing multiple deficiencies including not enough Copper and Zinc and Boron.  Manganese and Iron are also probably inadequate.

If your tree was planted in a hole filled with compost or potting soil, the tree should be dug out and replanted in native soil.

Thank you 🙏

I had many trees which I put the free local mulch on (with eucalyptus). All the trees which had this mulch had the same curl issues, and they vanished when I removed it.

Dunno if it's of any help, but it seemed to fix my curl issues.

Good idea. There could be fungus from the mulch causing issues.

New growth on some branches dries up. Some of the leaves are curled and deformed. Can anyone identify the issue and solution. Tree is in San Diego 2 miles from the coast. Lots of fungal issues in the area.

Thanks so much.

I will be at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Cypress with 20lbs of cherimoya available for sale. If you are interested please text me 760 458 1674


Would you ship to Florida 4-5 pounds? How much for shipping?

It would have to be shipped in a USPS large flat rate box - $18.85

I'm not sure how to ID the pierce variety. I'm stewarding the land for an old cherimoya grove planted in the 1980s. None of the trees are marked with a tag. I can send you pictures of fruit I have harvested if you know how to ID.
