I live about 5 miles as the crow flies from the ocean between US1 and I95. Just came from a mango tasting at Pinders Nursery and loved the Coconut Cream, Cogshall and Maha Chanok.many varieties were not represented. So I like sweet mango flavor, tried Springfeld, ugh, too spicey, not sweet. Since I am wanting a small tree my choices are limited..

So far my small yard has a Carrie-4years old and wonderful, a coconut  creme -one year old, a NMD one year old and a Pickering one year old. There is room for one more small variety and would like suggestions? Considering Cogshall?

I see you are in Stuart, I live in Port St Lucie, do you grow any dwarf varieties and if so what do recommend. I lave a louquat that is not producing and must go. So its either another mango or an atrmoya.

Both my LSU purple and gold figs are growing one shoot mainly. Just got 4figs from the gold, funny looking as the bottoms are flat. My only source of manure os black cow so I will buy some and pile it on. Celeste full of figs but small, all this rain might help.

I planted it last year mid summer. The nursery got them from Zill, no variety listed but should be soft variety.

I was hoping that was not the explanation but you are probablt correct. I recently pulled up some everglades tomatoes ang the roots were heavily infected with nematodes.

I planted a florida persimmon in the ground with a SE exposure but it is not growing. Tje leaves sll have numerous black spots on them and no new leaves are appearing. It gets water snd fertilizer and has grown little since I planted it from the nursery 3 gallon pot, it is mulchec too with the cheap red mulch from Lowes.

I have an LSU Purple, Two LSU Golds and a BROWN TURKEY . The LSU varieties are in a 5 gallon Home Depot bucket with the bottom cut out and are planted in the groung theu are now two years in the ground and hane grown to about 5 feet and hsve no fruit but look healthy. Also there is an old Celeste on the ptoperty the I pruned back last winter and it is full of smsll figs but they sre not getting larger, it is in the groung and is about 5 feet wide and 4 feet tall. The only star is a brown yurkey that is in about a 25 gallon ceramic pot that is fruit well and have sime large fruit. All tre were mulched the the low cost red mulch when Lowes had the dollar a bag sale in the spring. For some reason that is anout the same time the in ground figs shut down growing. I regolarly fertilise and I water them and dump corree frounds om them weekly, forst one hen the next week the other and so on. The leaves are showing signs of rosr on the brown turkey.
