Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Growing Mango trees in Southern California

👍 I am curious too. I just planted some sweet tart seeds in the ground and they are starting to sprout now. I am planning to cover them in the winter. Thanks.

If i manage to get a seed from the few mangoes that produced this year, should i plant it in ground right away, even though winter is just around the corner?

Tried to send you a PM, but not sure if it made to you. I would like some seeds too. Thanks

Bump - if anyone needs any Sweet Tart seeds, let me know and I'll send them this weekend.


That's awesome! We used to farm for a living. We had multiple wells and 6 5000 gallon storage tanks with 10 100 gallon pressurized tanks and two massive pumps to move water throughout the farm. Don't go cheap on wells and equipment especially with 60 acres of land. Good luck.

Nice looking specimens. I live near Hawkfish. Here's my LZ, it's about 8 months in the ground.


My PMs didn't get to your inbox for some weird reason. Please, send me a PM. I'd like to buy a machete ice cream bean from you.


Just sent you a PM for a machete ice cream bean. Thanks.


Did you get my PM with regard to red escalate, Grimal, and Cabelludinha?

I am interested in your red escalate and grimal jabocotiba. Do you ship to California? Thanks.



How much is your budding tape?




Impressive collection of mangoes you have there. How many varieties of mangoes do you have? Thanks. Regards.

I am not sure, but I planted 3-4 different varieties within a 10x30 space. I am a dumb horticulturist, but I think this grouping of sapodilla would help me with pollination and fruiting.
By the way, I also have Haysa. Hope that helps.

Does a Hasya sapodilla need another sapodilla tree in the same yard or is it X (how many?) miles away for cross pollination?  I live in Miami near Homestead so there's other trees in the area though my direct adjacent neighbors don't have them.

Combination of noob inexperience and other factors. I hope I have learned my lesson.

Thank you! What do you think is giving you trouble? The wind? Heat? In Fresno we get hotter in summer and far colder in winter and I've been growing them without any issue so far.

Hello mate,

I am near Riverside. Mango is still elusive for me, but I could grow pretty much everything here. Talking about mangoes and jabocotiba, let me introduce you to my friend, hawkfish007, but his forum name should have been socalfruitemperor. I'd consider him king of mangoes and jabocotiba in southern California. He's been very successful with them. He has all of the top varieties here. As for me, I am still struggling with VP, NDM, and LZ.

Where's the like button? 👍

You guys should go buy some rebar.
Pound into ground.
Tie some together for bracing.

They will train your trees and help with high wind.
I paid $7 for 20’ 1/2” rebar over here.
Cut into 3 inside HD using their cutter.
End up with 3 6’8” per 20’
That’s around $2 a stake.
Cheap and last a long time.


Congratulations! You're definitely mango king. You have successfully grown turpentine roostck mangoes in southern California. That's no easy task. I live practically near to you and have failed at growing mangoes here.

I guess your success proves that there's no such thing as turpentine vs Manila rootstock. It is all boiled down to grower's dedication and techniques.

My Asian black sugarcane is tiny, the stalks are tiny. Don't know why.

How low can you go to resort to stealing fruit trees?

We have Calypso mango in Dubai. It's not a bad mango, but it's a little bland. Possibly pick too early.

I just rolled mine like the commercial farms. They grow like weeds in southern California.

Isn't this the same variety like the Vietnamese 034?

That's suck ass. This is why I want to move out of the people's social republic of California to rural southern Florida.

Good thing I live in a super quiet neighborhood surrounded by old folkies.

I have 2 haysa and 2 Alano sapodillas planted in a row. I will find out if they will cross- pollinate in about a year or two.
