Thanks for sharing, it looks very healthy, anything special with watering and feeding?

Any obvious deficiencies from this recent flush please? Ignore the salt damage in last year's growth, keep in mind that this seedling was recently transplanted in the ground with some damage to the taproot. I'm thinking of spraying micros as my soil won't provide much (soil test attached) but should I rather wait for the next flush? Currently I'm just adding Humic/Fulvic acids and seaweed extract + very light amino acid & NPK.

Soil test:

What kind of soil were those mangos planted in?

That's exactly my thought! My very high pH calcareous soil makes mangoes look like this unfortunately.

What about citrus?

In soil mixes, 10% peat is great (up to 20%)  (by volume).

Can I use 10% peat in the planting hole during the last transplant in ground?

Har, I believe you warn people about adding compost when planting a mango tree even in very sandy, very poor high ph soil, can you say the same about peat please?

Seanny, how many chill hours do you get for Coral Champagne to flower that much?

I donít have much experience grafting stone fruit, should I remove all or some of the flowers? Thanks

The most I would leave is 1 fruit in case you really really want to taste it but trust me anything you leave might end up just hurting the graft.

I don't grow any of these unfortunately D-Grower but here are some in case folks see something they grow.

20th Century (3-400)
Hosui (3-400)
Shinseiki (250-300)

Does anyone have any experience with R-K Nematodes and mangoes?

Thank you for posting this, I came here to ask the exact same question except that I got mine from Hmart in the north east. I've never been a fan of Jackfruit, but this one with the yellowish/orangish tint had an amazing aroma that fills up the whole kitchen, and tasted as you described it: bubble gum.

How are they Brad?

Nurseries mainly use the 100% slow release fertilizers like Nutricote, Osmocote. It doesn't wash out or burn.
Be aware some places will market a "slow release" fertilizer which only contains ~20% slow release component. It is not the same as 100% and can burn.

That makes sense, is it usually a balanced fertilizer?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / How do nurseries fertilize young mango plants

Do you guys have recommendations for the go to fertilizer ratios that nurseries use? I'm talking about seedlings from 2 months to let's say 18 months for example, mangoes or similar...

For some reason, most seedlings I purchase come with very wild and very strong roots. I have seen bags of 13-40-13 at some nurseries before, but I'm not sure if all that P is good.

What is your experience please?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Florida mangos in Hawaii. All good??
« on: February 25, 2022, 07:30:49 AM »

They're looking great, very nice selection. I hope they all fruit for you, shipping to Hawaii must have been quite pricey.

Are there nutrients that tend to suffer most as the weather cools down?

I have not found any clear answers about mangos' tolerance of Chloride or Sodium, except that tolerance varies tremendously from one root-stock to another, as well as per scion grafted on those different root-stocks.  If you can get some 13-1 seeds(or 13/1), that might be of help.

Great answer! Do you have an idea about irrigation water Chloride range that is used without showing any damage? I'm suspecting that 5ppm in my water analysis is not enough.

Do you have any idea on how much Chloride is beneficial and not harmful in irrigation water please? All fertilizers I use are Cl free.

It looks very much like a Madame Francis

If the soil isn't already high in Ca, B, and Fe, you will also need to add those.


This is just a suggestion for the ratios that I could make from fertilizers that I already have. My soil is 8.4pH/90% calcareous/highly leaching sand.

I use Sequestrene for Fe, but my B is low! Could you please suggest a ratio (even with modifying what I posted earlier), my goal is to come up with a fertilizer that I use every time I water to simulate a slow release fertilizer for young seedlings < 1.5 years old.

What do you think about this combo please. (EDTA Micros)

N-   P-    K-   Mg-  S-  Z-    Mn
17- 12-  12-  3.8- 13- 0.3- 0.2

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Seen these symptoms before on Mango leaves?
« on: September 30, 2021, 07:46:52 PM »
As you can see, the issue is affecting older leaves first.

I'm suspecting:

Mg deficiency?
Phosphorus deficiency/toxicity?
Sulfur deficiency?
A micro deficiency?

sandy/pH 8.4/90% calcareous

Let me know if you have see something similar please. Thanks

I'm confused. Does this look like a disease or a nutritional issue please.
