Most varieties should be available in Spanish nurseries.


I wonder what happened in the last 10 years besides inflation.

Hey snowjunky,

Were you able to actually notice differences between Manilla vs Ataulfo?

This has become my favorite thread.

Since I could find here most of the folks who are growing seedlings, do you ever notice that the first few leaves are not necessarily identical to the growth that comes next? I'm talking mainly shape and to a less extent color. Could it be the difference between pulling resources from the seed as opposed to using roots and pulling from soil?

Small ants are always interested in very tender new shoots, I keep blowing on them to disturb them but I'm not even sure if they're doing any harm. Any similar experience?

I can get automated translation when I load the video:

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?

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.

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
« on: February 25, 2022, 08:02:28 AM »
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?

« 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?
