If anyone in the Miami area is interested to trade for Rosigold mangos.

Thank you Orkine for those leads!

If anyone has a tree or Budwood for sale, or leads on where I can find locally, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you for posting this Honest Abe; I had been looking for a Sugarloaf for a while with no luck.
And thank you to Barbara and the staff at Spykes for the beautiful Sugarloaf mango and Red jaboticaba!

I have a ~5 ft tall Bengal lychee to give away to anyone who wants to dig it up. Itís been in the ground less than a year and itís planted on a mound so it shouldnít be too bad with the roots. I am located in the Kendall area of Miami.

I used low biuret urea as a foliar spray (1 tsp per gallon) on my citrus in January (as recommended by Miller in the Citrus section of the forum) and today they are looking better that I have ever seen them. From my understanding it does have to be low biuret and should not be sprayed on open flowers.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fill soil for Mangoes?

Sounds like you need about 16 cubic yards of soil. That's roughly 1 dump truck load. When I was bringing in fill, it was going for about $250 - 300 per truck load (this was 2014). You do have to be really careful with fill. The vast majority of it is junk. With some searching, I was able to locate a really nice loamy sand (from Palm Beach County -- there's not much sand down here). I did send off a soil sample to a lab before buying it.

Look for a nice loamy sand, preferably something that's in its natural state. Around here, a lot of the fill sold around here is some sort of mix of limestone rubble plus muck plus horrendous looking mulch. Given that you're in an area dominated by sand, you shouldn't have too much trouble locating a good sandy fill.

You might want to hire a laborer for a day or two. Moving 16 yards of heavy soil isn't going to be a lot of fun. I ended up contracting a guy with a backhoe, but for such a small project, it the cost of doing so would not be worth it.

You're also going to need a place for the truck to dump the load of soil. If you have a strong driveway, they could dump it there.

I would be interested in your Lisa atemoya if you still have it? I tried to send you a PM but not sure if it went through. If not, can you PM me?
