My college campus in nola has a mango tree growing that survived a 20f freeze last year with no damage and no cover. The tree is in a blocked off area behind a brick wall so that could have protected it from harsh winds. But it's open to the elements on the top. I asked around but no response. I've seen flowers on the tree but no fruit. About 7ft tall. Any mango varieties that can survive harsh freezes that this could be?

Ok, great news.  I also started a bunch of seeds around the same time and have most of them germinated now as well.  Was wondering how your seed sprouting went.

My honeyharts sprouted. The rest i have sitting for a year like you suggested

Looks like typical color caused from cooler temps.
I notice all my jabos look ragged this time of the year and
usually push new leaves around March and look much better.

Thats reassuring. I guess it also doesn't help moving it in and out with temp changes.  :)

Temps have dropped below 40F so I have moved all my smaller tropicals inside. They've been inside for a day and my yellow jabo is getting some serious discoloring. It's 74F in my house. Is this cold damage, or something else?

Got my cuttings in today. Stuffed a bunch in the box. Thanks again!

Lovingly packaged... yes?

Yep of course always. They were wrapped in wet towels in a ziplock bag. You always do good stuff Kevin 👌👌

Got my cuttings in today. Stuffed a bunch in the box. Thanks again!

Mine came in a few days ago. Nice huge pads

All my seeds got here today. I see you took the prayer beads advice lol

Got all my cuttings in and potted up today.  :D fingers crossed for good sprout rate. Nice huge cuttings on the hog plums. Thanks for the extras

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fertilizer for na dai sugar apple?

From what I've read sugar apples need 3:10:10 but I can't find that formula anywhere but shady retail sites. What fertilizer am I supposed to use on my sugar apples?

Just sprouted my first red and white jabos. And your videos were a huge inspiration. Got some superior lemon drop mangosteen coming in also.

Hopefully you didn't use friends and family option. Because then you're most likely sunk. If not open a dispute and paypal should handle for undelivered goods or services

Did you get the ordered items?

I have purchased from them more than once and they have good service and the cuttings were very healthy. Maybe you should try to give them a call to find out what happened to your order. Your item may have gone out of stock when you ordered it.

My stupid self thought in stock meant ready to ship. Learned that wasn't the case after contacting them.

I don't know about fruit production but the plants def grow ridiculously fast. I planted my seeds a month ago and they're already a foot tall

Hey my messages got deleted. If you messaged me about shipping some garcinia out after new years pm me plesse!

My white sapote, and mulberries are all flowering and fruiting. Same here lows of like 55 and highs of high 70s

Edit: after contacting them found out in stock does not mean ready to ship. Nowhere on the product page does it say this but live and learn. Doesn't even have estimated shipping times for each product.

Have experienced sudden death of cempedak seedlings, not as easy as jackfruit. Our cempejacks are going very well.

The one I'm getting is supposedly fruiting age so fingers crossed

Get ready to start watching some paint dry and water boil...these things grow slowwww in the sub-tropics. I would recommend Lucís for cold hardiness and easiness to grow. The only fruit Iíve eaten out of the Garciniaís is Purple Mangosteen and Achacha. They were both really tasty with Achacha having a floral thing going on (like in some lychees) and purple mangosteen having a nice mellow citrusy flavor without the tart...Good luck in your search, I have some extra seedlings of seashore mangosteens in 1 gallons, and maybe a couple of other Garciniaís laying around...if interested lemme know

I have a friend who has a lemon drop that produces a few fruit but not much. But it gives me hope

Pm sent

I have some starters of g. brasiliensis (the superior form of lemon drop mangosteen)
Pm me if interested.

Wtb garcinia starter plants. I have achacha and achacha selecto.
