Peach Cobbler- making mostly leaves not flowers.  Will be my 1st tasting though so i'm looking forward to it :) 

shot, cool. 

I love watching the reaction of people who try the Peach Cobbler mango for the first time.  Hope you get fruit.

I would plant a seedling from a really good cherimoya.  If the fruit turns out to be no good, you'll have a nice, strong rootstock to graft onto.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Mexican Sunflower Cuttings!
« on: January 08, 2024, 12:03:17 PM »
Iím selling cuttings of the Mexican Sunflower (Tithonia Diversifolia).  This is the ultimate chop and drop plant.  Produces loads and loads of fresh mulch.  Also produces beautiful yellow flowers that attracts lots of pollinating insects.  Really easy plant to take care of.  Super drought tolerant and grows like a weed.  Just set it and forget it.  $4 each (minimum order of 5 cuttings).  Shipping is $9.  I can cut various sizes.  Standard size is 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch.  Just let me know.

Ok we need AJ to say if he prefers nabal or sharwil.  Nabal is nicexcellent but sharwil still is better IMO.

Guess it just comes down to personal preference.

Nabal is my favorite.  Best avocado Iíve ever eaten.  Sharwil is in my top 3, along with Reed.  Those 3 picked at the right time are world class, and they can go toe to toe against each other.

dark fruit. Fruits are big, dark, and sweet (when it is really ripe) with high acidity.    Not much gasoline smell.

Red fruit. It was grafted last year.  Fruits are even bigger, red, and sweet.  Not much gasoline smell.

Is your red fruit a named variety? Where did you find it?  Thatís a good looking fruit. Nice size.

Zill Dark harvested just this morning. Lots of resin, lots of sweetness, a little acidity to give it some balance. I just wished my tree would produce more. I only have about 7 more on the tree.  Seems to be a shy bearer at least for me.

What type of soil did you plant it in?

M4 could be called:

Mr. Coconut
Coconut Extreme
Coconut Dream

 ::) ;)

These are great names.  M4 deserves the late season crown.  Itís top tier in my opinion.

A good Surinam Cherry variety (Zill Dark, Vermilion, etc.) has the same strong, resinous ďbiteĒ of a good Indian mango.  I recently had some Zill Dark that were super intensely flavored, in a good way.  Highly recommended!

Yea, the same thing happened to me in 2021 regarding the fruit split. Check out my previous post. You can do a search under my name and "show posts". Look back to 2021.

Remove all of your fruit and apply organic fertilizer and azomite now. Focus on vegetative growth for the next 2-3 years. Your Sweet Tart Mango tree is still too young and needs more maturity as mine did.

Good Luck


Thanks for the tips Johnny.  Iíll try it, although the thought of removing all the fruit is quite painful, lol.  At the moment, the tree is flushing lots of vegetative growth as well.  Do you have any fertilizer recommendations in terms of brand or ratios?

My Sweet Tart mangoes are starting to crack.  I think I overwatered.  These are from a Sweet Tart mango seed I planted in 2018.

In a 1 gallon container.  Grafted onto Fuerte seedling rootstock.  Already branching out pretty nice.  $50.  Local pickup only in the LA area.

In a 1 gallon container.  Well branched out and ready to be planted in the ground or moved to a bigger container.  $50. Local pick up only in the LA area.

Could be interested, what area of socal are you in?

I sent you a PM

I'm selling this Ubajai tree (Eugenia Myrcianthes).  Also known as Hexachlamys Edulis.  It's in a 5 gallon container, and it has a thick trunk.  Definitely ready for planting in the ground or getting moved up to a bigger container.  The tree is about 4 feet tall and is branching out pretty well.  It flowered heavily in the spring.  $90.

Hopefully this one is a good plant solo because I have just one.  What I can tell you is I have had it about 6 months outdoors here and it is killing it for a Eugenia.  It takes my sun full blast and about a foot and half tall.  My personal opinion this an easy growing Eugenia but I have no idea about the fruit, maybe some others would know.

Same here. Mine is about the same size as yours and takes the full sun like a champ.  So far itís been really low maintenance for me.  Seems pretty promising so far.
