Home Depot and Lowes should have them soon but they do sell out quickly.  I have an extra that I can sell if you are not able to find one.

Whenever I call or go to Atkins they always say that they have don't have 5 gallon mango in stock.  I was there a few weeks ago and was wandering around the greenhouse in front of the office and found a few nice seedlings in tall 18 inch containers.   Not sure what rootstock it is but grows really well for me in the Bay Area.

I was at Exotica nursery on Friday and picked up a grafted Sunset in a 5 gallon container.  There were a bunch if anyone is looking for this variety.

Just wanted to share an update with some of my fall annona grafts.  Most are pushing or still green, but growing really slow unlike spring grafting.


Leo Manuel #3 grafted Oct 7th



Birula and Rudy #2 grafted Sep 14th


Pink's Mammoth grafted Sep 14 - finally starting to push after 2 months

Temps here the past month kept fluctuating from high 90's to mostly low 70's with smoke and ashes most days.  I think last year the temps were consistently hotter most days. I was busy with work last year and didn't have as much time as I have now to monitor progress of the grafts.  This year I also bagged the new grafts for the first week or 2 just because I felt the green wood is more fragile and prone to drying out or getting fried on hotter days.  I can send some pictures of the grafts when I get back from San Diego in a few days.

I've done around 30 grafts from the last week of Aug to this week.  Most have taken or are still green.  Still too early to tell for the ones grafted within the past 2 weeks.  It's been taking 3-4 weeks for the buds to start pushing.  Result are higher than I expected.  I attempted fall grafting last year and results were awful.

I am not too far from you and have been able to grow and fruit mango here in the Bay Area.  I have a few trees purchased from Home Depot and some from JF.  I'm sure I made every mango growing mistake along the way, like letting the tree hold fruit every year.  I've learned a lot from this forum.  This year I grafted Sweet Tart and a few other varieties onto my 5 year old tree purchased from Home Depot.  My other  trees grafted on manilla rootstock are growing well here.  The Orange Sherbet has been flushing new growth all summer.  I agree that it is more of a novelty and I never expect to get a lot of fruit from the trees.  It was exciting to pick a tree ripened mango during the last heat wave, it smelled and tasted amazing!
