Hello Guys,

Would anyone recognize the attached mango pictures.

It is small, and super sweet, and purportedly from Colombia.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fruit and Spice Park - Is it worth it
« on: January 14, 2015, 03:53:26 PM »
Hey Guys,

I am in South Florida right now (Miami Beach), and i am thinking in visiting Fruit and Spice Park tomorrow.

Will it be worth to go in this time of the year, or better leave it for the summer?

As i don't have a car, and it will be a hardship going back and forth, so i wanted to know whether it will be worth it in January or not.

Thanks in advance.

gr8 pics and nice looking healthy trees ,, thx for sharing

But where is a good source for a good cultivator ,, i tried Vernon and it was amazing ,, toptropicals sells different varieties ,,


WOW ,,, amazing collection ,, mixing tropicals with cold weather fruits ,, Great accomplishment ,,


By scale is the best ,, you know exactly what you have and how much it cost ,, you cant be ripped and you cant be smart on the seller ,,


Amazing pics ,, as always Harry ,, you have the best collection of Mango and tropical fruit trees ,,

Great collection and very busy yard ,, your berries are awesome ,, i cant wait to get this boysenberry ,, i can see you are growing blueberry as well ,, is it adapted to our weather ,, thanks for taking the time to upload such nice pics ,,


Thanks for sharing your awesome mango trees Zands ,, i love your murcott tangerine ,, i love it soo sweet and late in the season ,,


Great looking tree ,, and when it fruits it sure will be more good looking with such wide and symmetric branches ,,


Amazing looking trees and Amazing looking soil indeed ,, seems full of nutrients ,, i use the flood irrigation as well ,, its too easy lool ,, the cherimoya tree is enormous along with that plum tree ,, papaya on the floor need to be eaten of course :D ,,

And that tommy atkins ,, its great how it looks like a mature fruit with the red marks ,,

Anyway thanks for sharing such beautiful trees and taking the time to upload such high-res pics ,,


Interesting video, Amr.  However, none of the fruits that I have ever opened would fall apart like that.  The fruit that they are eating looks to me to have some champedak in its breeding.  I have never seen a jakfruit that was that soft either, without being well beyond its prime.....frankly, it would have to be rotten to be that soft.  So....with a  champedak relative, this method is good.  Oscar is decribing a totally different method .  I am going to try Oscar's method with my next opening.


Keep us posted Harry ,, maybe this fruit have some chempadak as they are offering chempadak seeds as well ,, or maybe the variety is completely different ,, and yes i though that when the fruit is that soft it may be over ripe to rotten but then i saw them eating it lol ,,


Oscar's method is the best i think ,, it keeps the latex as is in the inner core ,, peeling off the skin then revealing the fruit segments intact is the best but i think  requires that the fruit is mature enough that the fruit segments won't be attached to the skin ,,

here is a video for a farm in australia they sell seeds as well

LOL ,, i love the rock-hard mango description ,, when i visit the US i never eat mangoes ,, in fact i eat as much mangoes as i can before i go ,, stores tend to bring mangoes for decoration only ,,

And i envy you Mike T ,, i would love to eat mangosteen for ever ,,


It's definitely right ,, it should outcome into a more powerful tree ,,

Thanks for the info mikesid and Oscar :)


Is grafting longan and lychee possible ,, i though you need to air-layer them.

Pomegranates are one of my favorite fruits. I have 5 pomegranate trees for fruiting and 2 for beauty (dwarf nana).

I got dwarf ones as well ,, they are nice ,, but eating pomegranates is amazing ,, and its timing in the fall is even much awesome ,,


Amazing looking Bonsai trees and Mangoes ,, sure the Philippine mangoes are the best ,, and i loved your jackfruit pics as well ,, Thanks for sharing ,,
