Valencia Pride mango tree (South Florida)
« on: April 14, 2013, 08:44:55 PM »
I have a 6' - 7' Valencia Pride grafted mango tree that I need to trade.  it is currently in a pot and is too big to ship so it must be traded to someone in South Florida.  I need to strike a deal before next weekend or I will be planting it in my parents yard.  I am willing to entertain and and all offers.

What size pot, is it in and how long has it been in it?
I have Nishikawa and Florida Hass Avocados for trade.

5 gal pot purchased 2 weeks ago from Excalibur but this past weekend I visited Patrick and Sheehan and purchased 4 more mango trees.  Someones head has to roll and it is Valencia Pride.

I am pretty sure it is a 5 gallon because it is bigger than my 3 gallons.   I have too many mango trees so Valencia Pride and it's vigorous growth habit is on the chopping block.

I completely agree with respect to VP's size.  I make sure when somebody is purchasing one that they are aware of the size potential and be sure to show them the tree in the ground, with its towering height AFTER it has been trimmed (by human and by storms) many times.

While there is an outside chance it is a 5 gal, MOST of Excalibur's mangoes are in 3s or 7s.

One way or another she will find a home this weekend.  If no one takes it, I am planting it by my parents house.
