Tropical Fruit Discussion / New Mango Growth Concerns
« on: May 06, 2022, 12:57:22 PM »
Hello - My young mango trees don't appear to be putting out typical robust new growth since I removed the blooms a couple of months ago. The first photo shows the Maha Chanock, with one new growth appearing only a couple of weeks after I removed the blooms, but is stunted. It's been that size for over a month. The 2nd photo shows the growth buds that began appearing a month ago. They are very slow to pop out.

The next photos show my Glen Mango with some peculiar growth -  one photo shows one new growth growing downward, the others just very tiny and weak looking. Maybe I'm a overly concerned but need some opinions. I have fertilized these trees with a good mango/citrus fertilizer with micronutrients, and keep them watered in between the infrequent rains in West Central Florida this Spring.

Citrus General Discussion / Is this HLB?

I fear that the responses will not be good news regarding a new condition that I noticed yesterday on my young Minneola Tangelo. I think it's citrus greening but before I dig up this tree I would like to hear from people who know. Here are photos of the leaves. Thanks

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for Jonathan Apples
« on: August 15, 2021, 10:59:53 PM »
I know this may be a somewhat odd request for this forum, but do any of the more northern US members have a source for me to order true Jonathan apples? I have been unable to find them locally for years and it's my favorite eating apple. The best I've had came from Virginia, and some really good ones from Michigan.
The hybridized apples in grocery stores here in Florida are absolutely bland and tasteless.

If anyone knows where I can mail order some of these great apples please let me know. Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango Tree Growth Question
« on: August 05, 2021, 10:37:34 AM »
Good morning!

I planted this Glenn mango tree a couple of months ago. It's right at 6-1/2' tall and the trunk is about 1-inch in diameter. As you can see the top is growing well but I'm concerned that the top will continue to outgrow the trunk that supports it.

Will the trunk catch up or do I need to do something with the top growth?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Blueberry Pollinator
« on: May 18, 2021, 03:57:44 PM »
I have a few Southern Highbush Emerald blueberry plants I need to get planted. Do they require another variety to pollinate?

Can anyone tell me what is causing these yellow spots on a tangerine tree I found at a nursery?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is wrong with this mango?
« on: June 12, 2019, 06:03:28 PM »
This mango came from my mother in law's tree last week and it has always produced a ton of wonderful, delicious fibreless fruit. The fruit still on the tree didn't appear ripe but this one was on the ground and not ripe either. When I cut it today this is what I saw. I tasted a little piece that looked normal and it tasted good as always, but tossed the rest. The other 8-10 I picked up off the ground had the same rotten spot inside, and some of those had black splotches on the skin.

Does anyone have an idea what variety this is and what is the problem with that ugly spot inside. Thanks

After reading a lot of articles on Citrus Greening and associated research to find a cure or viable treatment, I found this article that totally contradicts everything I've read. It's pretty interesting and encouraging to read about successful results rather than more and more research with no end in sight except more research.

If you can spare about 10 minutes to read this article and let me know your thoughts I'd appreciate it.
