Wow Amazing growth, always a sign of good care. was it a grated tree or from seeds?

Seedling from pine island nursery in Miami, quality of fruit is yet to be known to us.

mixed lots of compost and organic fertilizer in with the soil before planting. They have been fed fish fertilizer in their water and also the past 2 months I have began foliar feeding with the fish and liquid kelp as well as small amount of monopotassium. One outta three trees did flower and set one fruit about 2 weeks back. this is our first time growing soursop and we ourselves  have been impressed with growth rate.

Do you know if the Rio Grande Cherry are slow growing when young? I purchased my tree as a 3 gallon an put it in ground right away. Still it has yet to really grow much at all.

Last February I purchased and planted a Cherry of The Rio Grande in ground. I mixed compost, bone&blood meal, and some all purpose fertilizer in the soil before planting and had high hopes from the little plant. Well after 10 months in ground the plant has hardly moved. It has all its leaves and doesn't appear stressed but I feel it's unhappy. Is zone 10a southwest florida climate not ideal for this tree?

Sugar apples really need to fully ripen on the tree to be their best. You can tell they are ripe when the segments are really spreading apart around entire fruit.

Great Collection of fruit trees on what looks to be a rather condense site. How rewarding it is to grow your own mango cultivars from seed.

I had a similar issue with my sugar apple seedlings when they first popped up. I found it was a very tiny black  worm/caterpillar chewing lines in the leaves. Your problem looks nearly the same and I would be it is a insect eating the leaf.

very pretty fruit though

Echo FARMS in North Fort Myers set me up with ns1, bangkok lemon, j31, black gold and orange crush jakfruit seedlings. All are growing like weeds and I hope to share my results with there fruiting in near future.

Its looking good when you gonna put them in the ground?

Currently Growing White Thai, Tropical white, Tropical pink, African Gold, Mexican Cream, Excalibur Pink, Kilo white and Ruby supreme.  I have tried them all except the African Gold. Kilo and Mexican cream are my favorite white varieties(soft and creamy). However I must say I find the Ruby Supreme to be the sweetest and would always recommend it first.

I removed my Strawberry guava as the fruit is subpar in my opinion and gets heavily attacked by fruit fly.

1. Mango of Course
2. Pineapple so sweet
3. Cantaloupe
4. Sugar Apples
5. Ruby Guavas

Subject To change

Recently I have began looking into feeding the tropical fruit trees I have with a Monopotassium foliar feeding to increase overall health and promote more flowering. The trees I would be spraying include soursop, sweetsop, mango, sapodilla, guavas and jakfruits with Only the sapodillas and guavas  in flower currently. I plan to feed the trees a 1% solution via foliar spray at dusk. Having no experience with this fertilizer before im looking for feedback on whether this is a good fertilizer to include in my foliar feed.
