Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Foliar Micro-nutrients
« on: May 17, 2021, 04:57:09 AM »
Anyone ever use any of the kristalon fertilizer variants for foliar feed. I have the green one which is labeled as both foliar and root zone fert, it is with main and micro elements, dunno if its found in Australia though.

Also I have some homemade fish emulsion "ripening" right now , last year I sprayed most of my plants with this and remembered I had some strange things happen to my cherimoya's leaves. Maybe I made it too strong??
Anyone using homemade fish emulsion as a foliar ?? Gone tropo , sorry if I am hijacking the tread, just didn't want to make a new tread for a similar type questions .
Wish u all a nice day !!
How much fish per gallon?

What site did you see them showing as permanently closed?

I just spoke to Verna.  While they are not permanently closed they have no fruit at the moment and are not open yet.  She also let me know they have very few fruit this year so I would call before going there as they may have no fruit or be by appointment only.

Thank you. Google said it was closed and Facebook page said closed permanently.

Google says temporarily closed, which they are as they are only open during mango season.

I dont see where Facebook says they are permanently closed. I know the site has not been updated since 2018 is not currently being updaated for business reasons.

For mangoes:
Hidden Acres in Davie
Tropical Acres in West Palm Beach
Zills Mangos in Boynton Beach

For lychees:
Lychee Fruit Store in Loxahatchee

I am sure there are places in Broward and Miami-Dade that sell lychees that I am not familiar with.

Mid June may be the tail end or just a bit late for Sweethearts.

Thank you! Is it true Zills is permanently closed? I couldnít find any info/address on the Lychee Fruit Store, do they have a website?

This is one of the most detailed and well put together documents Iíve found about lychee cultivars. Created by the National Research Centre for Litchi (Indian Council of Agricultural Research.)

Major agricultural works from fruit planting to fruit harvesting in Litchi

Dr. SK Singh
Professor & Chief Scientist (Plant Disease)
Dr. Rajendra Prasad Central University, Pusa, Samastipur-848 125

When the temperature starts to rise in the month of February in Bihar, then flowers start coming in the garden of Litchi. When about 8-10 % of flowers come in the garden, bee boxes should be kept at the rate of @ 10-15 boxes / hectares, by doing this, pollen in Litchi's orchard is good and yields good too. When the flowers in the garden of Litchi are well fruitful, the bees stop coming to the garden. As long as there are bees in the garden, we should not use any agricultural chemicals. Fruits in the garden do not fall, for this planofix @ 1 ml medicine / 3 liters of water should be sprayed. Before irrigation, about 500 grams of urea, 250 grams muret of potash / tree plate should be made, then light irrigation should be done continuously. When the fruit is equal to the grains of peas, then you should use neem based pesticides. Where there is more problem of fruit piercing insects, imidaclopreed should be dissolved in @ 1 ml medicine / 2 liters of water and sprinkled in 10 days interval. Where there is more problem of litchi fruit ripping, there is Borex @ 4 ga.
It is good to dissolve in / litre water and spray two at a interval of 10 to 15 days.
Litchi starts cooking around 20-25 May in Bihar. Litchi should always be done between 4-8 am in the morning, sorting, boxing etc. all things should be done in a cold place. If possible, send it to the market for sale in cold-cold. If possible, use a air conditioned vehicle.

I would use a 25 gallon pot and leave it there

I have Redlands and others grafted on the same tree. My multi-grafted white sapote tree has 28 varieties now thanks to all of the forum members here.

On my tree here's the varieties that seem to grow much faster/vigorous than the others:
1. Walton
2. Santa Cruz
3. Super Sweet
4. Bonita Springs
5. Redlands

So I agree the Redlands does grow more vigorous than some of the others. This graft is only 9 months old and doing good. It may be more vigorous than the first 4 on this list but the graft is not old enough to compare it yet. But it does seem to grow faster than others grafted at the same time.

Do you have a favorite variety yet?

41
Are you growing it in a greenhouse? Youíre in North Carolina?

42
I planted Redlands in a pot 2 months ago

Who is picking up Los Angeles orders? Iíll pay for gas

You have to mix in frankia bacteria into the soil for the plants to survive. And use the proper shade cloth

Where can we find Frankís Bacteria for sale? Do you know if the strains of Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria used on beans would work? Thanks for the suggestion! Also, do you have any literature you might be able to point us to?

Simon


I was looking for it and I found this. I donít know if itís the same bacteria but itís also a nitrogen fixing bacteria. Is he suggesting it or is he saying itís required?

Who is the pickup for Los Angeles orders?

The caimitos Iíve had are like a bland persimmon. White sapote is great though.

I am growing mangosteen unprotected as of 2 months ago in Oxnard. It was unfazed by 40F at night but the top leaves were burnt by the sun. Itís a 2-3 foot seedling
