Hi all :D,

New here! Developed a great interest in Citrus trees last year. I wanted to reach out to see if anyone here has a sfusato amalfitano tree and would be willing to send me some cuttings and/or seeds (I don't know if they grow true to type, however). I made a rookie mistake with some Bergamot seeds I planted a couple of months ago as they don't grow true to type.

It would be a dream! Let me know, I'm in Canada.

Best,

Ciao,

The problem my friend is that Sfusato Amalfitano is unique because it like the climate where it grows, I'm guessing your heating bill is more than a batch a week from Italy   ;D

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

I live in Thousand Oaks, California. By keeping my Kent mango seedling warm during winters by keeping it overnight in the garage, later a plastic bag with 100W incandescent bulb, & even later a large wooden structure with plastic sides & winter warming power source. I started the seed in a cup of water when my son was born 36 years ago, and now the tree is 25 feet tall or so and growing out of the top & sides of its 2-story wooden structure. I had also placed plastic bottles full of water to keep the soil warm around the tree. The base diameter is around 18 inches now, and we do get nice fruit from it. I stopped having to keep it warm during winters around 5 years ago. Photo is looking up through roof at growing mango, plus mangos on a branch of the tree.





Wonderful, how does it taste?

As far as Alkalinity and tough sandy conditions tolerance, are Brewster roots in general the gold standard or is Leo Manuel's specifically that wins the game.

Guava is intensely sweet and guava-y.
It's not my cup if tea but I know some who but it up there.
Maya is a classic flavor mango, been on my want to try list.
I have aromanis, which is supposed to be the same as harumanis, it's Indochinese in flavor but not super flavorful

Maya is just a classic taste as you described but you're really not missing anything. Most Israeli varieties are bred to appeal to the western markets where looks and bland taste are privileged.

The last time I saw Bradís trees, I was surprised at how well they were growing.  I canít seem to get mine kick started and I live in a similar climate.  I have killed a ton of seedlings and had no luck with air layers.  Iím probably planting them when theyíre too small even though I have them under shade cloth.  Or fertilizing them wrong.  Whatever, Iím going to keep trying because I want raw fingers from peeling so many Brewster lychees. 
Lychees have to be one of the most beautiful trees when full of ripe fruit. Nice haul Spaugh!

I can totally relate, Brad somehow makes it seem like an easy job :) I tried store bought varieties Mexican seeds but they were never happy. Is Brewster supposed to be the most high pH tolerant rootstock?

It could be a wild European plum

I believe they're mono.

but Goa Mankur mango and Maya from Israel have very good taste. I purchased Goa mankur and Maya graft from them and planted near my house.

In my opinion Israeli Maya grown commercially is very average classic flavor mango, don't set your expectations too high.

Frank mangoes are amazing! I can also vouch for their quality

That's above the graft union so it will be fine, don't bother it for now. If anything try to straighten it as that branch will become the main trunk.

13
I would say give it some time to let the roots get established so that when you cut again it won't have a problem pushing on multiple spots.

I've had a "Gold Nugget" growing very big in the ground here in Chula Vista. The only problem is we are too cold all winter for the fruit to size up and ripen properly. The fruit get about football size, but then soften up in spring and drop without fully ripening. There are other places where some varieties do fine in the County. I'm looking for a variety that doesn't need to get very big to ripen properly.

I checked Chula Vista's weather in winter and doesn't seem bad. Are you saying that cold hurts it even when it doesn't get terribly cold?

I know this answer is a bit late, but I just wanted to chime in. I'm new on this forum, but I'm excited to share my experience with moving to a new place. When I moved, I usually made a list of what furniture I'd need and sold the rest. It helped me cut down on clutter and save some money.

A very sophisticated bot.

Ataulfo X Kent

Because their both commercial and I just cannot imagine a taste profile with a mix of both.

Wow, mangoba, I like the color (shades) on your citrus, is that an orange or mandarin? What variety is it?

Is that a conjoed twin melons? I had the fingered sumo which had 11 separate parts/fruit envelopes and should have been a world size record, but the Guinness World Records never got back to me.

I think it's a Nova mandarin which is grown commercially here. It almost looks fake  :)




Yes a twin melon



Fingered Sumo! That's insane.

19
but do overlook commonly planted ones like Cot-n-candy.

What's wrong please?

I'll let you know in a few more years. My pomelo seedling tree took 7 yrs to fruit, but it was worth the wait, excellent tasting fruit.

I believe Shiranuis are very likely true to seed.

I think that tree can easily be older than 8

I do, no HLB in Pennsylvania.  Are you in NE USA, or EU?

Good for you with the greenhouse! I'm in New Hampshire, I would love to get some cuttings please. I'll PM you.
