Tropical Fruit Discussion / Beverly mango yay or nay?
« on: September 15, 2022, 02:09:47 PM »
Hello folks, is Beverly a good mango choice for a backyard?

The tree has some good traits, late season, compact and a reliable producer.  But is it easily affected by BBS and rotting?

Has Beverly done well in South Florida over the years?
Anyone with experience with this cultivar?


Hello there friends, what would be the best way to use this space of land to plant some mango trees?

Here is a picture of the land, it has a slope so it drains well.

I have already planted another mango tree next to the other one and it is 15 feet apart.
I can plant some at the top near the fence as well.

What would you recommend to maximize this area for cultivars?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Deadly apple tree in Florida
« on: November 22, 2021, 10:30:10 AM »
On the surface, the Manchineel seems harmless: A green, leafy tree bearing fruits that resemble green apples.

But don't be fooled: Everything from the bark, sap and fruit can be incredibly dangerous to humans.

Hello again, I have a mango tree in pot to be planted into the ground.
The tree in pot has some small new leaves, should I wait for it for to be firm and fully grown to then plant it in the ground.

New leaves in plant, wait for the transplant, to then leave the pot into the dirt?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Chok Anon mango
« on: June 28, 2021, 03:08:56 PM »
Hello folks, how does the Chok Anon mango taste compares to lemon merengue or lemon zest?
Does it taste like orange sherbet or orange essence?  Never tasted these two.

Sulcata Grove rated a 9 out 10!

The tree is medium growth and decease resistant, wonder why it is not highly talked about it.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango thief on the loose!
« on: May 12, 2021, 03:52:11 PM »
Check this out, this douche bag goes out and wipes the whole tree clean.

If anyone recognizes please report it to the authorities. Thievery is a crime.

Mango season should always bring out the best in us, not the opposite.

One puts out so much time, energy, effort, funds and waits patiently for this special season of the year only to be robbed?

What a scrounger!  Arrrrggghhhhhhhhh


Please help me out folks, what is your suggestion on these grafted trees?
Thanks a bunch!

3 feet tall on a 7 gallon
