Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Colder than normal winter in Florida 22/23?

Tricky question, those that have trees blooming at this stage would prefer warmer winter, otherwise a nice cold winter would be appreciated.

A18 trap it is sold in the US.

Ebay has them for sale $90.

Can plant peaches, pineapples, pomegranates, loquats, jaboticabas, oranges, mango, grapes, etc.

You can most definitely plant mango trees. 
I have seem mango trees north of Orlando in Winter Park and Winter Garden.

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?


Yes, I already have smaller trees in mind.
Thank you!

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?

How was the M4 taste?  Can you please describe it?

I’d have to say sweet tart…cac was pretty good also but some tasted bad it just depended on ripeness
Honey kiss hit well
As well as m-4 probably my favorite one although not sweet as sweet tart

Hahahaha I know man, weird but to each its own way.  ;D

Mango manor said Fruit Cocktail.
Who's "mango manor?"  Never mind.  I found his YouTube channel.  He puts rocks around his trees.  That's weird.

Yes, I know taste is very subjective... however I did also ask about the tree growth habit and its productivity.

Thanks John about that info.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fruit Punch or Fruit Cocktail mango?
« on: August 09, 2022, 02:38:46 PM »
Hello there, has any one tasted both fruit punch and fruit cocktail mango?

Which one tastes better?
Which tree is better, as in smaller and good producer.

Mango manor said fruit cocktail is the best this year so far.

Is orange sherbet a vigorous tree like VP or PPK?
Does it have a manageable growth habit?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Honey kiss or Keitt?
« on: August 04, 2022, 11:36:40 AM »
I vote for Keitt, why???
Big, yuge juicy mango, very late season, reliable producer, and the tree is very manageable to keep it short.

I heard of stories of people eating Keitt mango in Thanksgiving!!!   ;D
Hello all!
My 2-year old Cogshall finally gave us fruit this year and boy oh boy! We got mango craze - I be never been a big fan of mangos (store bought that is) but eating mango off your own tree is something else 😋
So now we want to extend our mango season and because of space limitations I decided on Pickering for July mangos and can’t decide whether to get Honey Kiss or Keitt for late season.
Both great producers, Keitt is later than Honey Kids, but I’ve read Honey Kids taste is superior.
Honey Kiss footprint is smaller, but Keitt with right pruning can be kept rather small too.
Not afraid of pruning - already have 8 mulberries lol
So what do you think?
We are not huge mango snobs, but having mangos in September is very appealing, hence Keitt is in the mix.
Thank you all!
P.s. I kind of want to plant now, prudent thing would be to wait until august and taste both Keitt and Honey Kiss from Truly Tropical in Delray but… itching to plant haha

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Mango tree help!
« on: July 31, 2022, 01:58:05 PM »
Please help me out on what to do with this mango tree. 

Many of the leaves have fallen off, all of the limbs have died except for one.
It is a grafted tree in a pot, how can I get it back to life??

Do I need to trim it? If so where?
Do I need to add vitamins? If so what?

Sugar Apple
Sour sop
Apple banana

A year and a half later...this is what I finally went with: Orange Sherbet, Sugarloaf, Honey Kiss, Little Gem, and I ordered a Cecilove from Alex.  I still may find a spot for Pickering.  I had also considered Amrapali.  Covering early season right now, my good friend has PPK, and my neighbors have propagated a seedling (let's call it "Edmundo") with an Indian/West Indian flavor profile and an excellent sweet/acid balance.

Great choices John! May your trees grow and produce.

Coconut cream has a bumpy skin. Would love to try out a Dot someday.

I have a question about Dot. I posted earlier about some Dots i had which were fantastic. They were smallish, like the size of a baseball, with very orange flesh and a more resinous taste. I went back again this week to refill my stock, and this time the Dots were bigger than a softball (see picture), with more yellowish orange flesh, and a sweeter flavor. Also, an exceptional mango. Were both of the mangos dots? Or was the first possibly something else which was mislabeled.

And looking at bovine's coconut cream pictures, maybe these larger ones were coconut cream. The flesh looks identical. They weren't labeled when I got them. I labeled all of the different mangos when I came home.

You need\must have sugar loaf!

Alternative M4 = coconut dream
