Mine or Patricks?

Here’s mine. And flowers buds. Sorry for the focus but you can see the typical flower is 2-3mm. The thick leaf seedling is almost 1cm.

I called Patrick. The one I have is a seedling of the so called thick leaf.

It just from a time perspective. I would be faster, one or two months ahead.
There are some benefits using an interstock.
Say you have calcareous soil but can't use FD to dwarf the tree.

No way I would talk a knife to a two month old graft. So them both at once are wait a year.

Friend just did this with sone fruits and it’s pushing at least.

Peeling is unrelated to flowering on my sabara.

Will keep y’all posted. It actually could be the same as that thick leaf one. He can jump in and clarify.

Hi Shane , it probably is the same as Jim's thick leaf as I got seeds in a seed swap of 7 varieties all at the same time and from 6 different people I do have at least 4 or 5 very distinct looking/shaped leaves and some really great fruit

So the graft was from a 'thick leaf' seedling? Not 'thick leaf' itself?

Patrick (buddy roo ) gave me a grafted ‘1 5/8’. Named after the size of fruit in inches. He can tell us more about the history.  I’m getting my first flowers now.

First here’s the flowers and buds of every other cultivar I have:

Here’s what the bid and flower look like for 1 5/8

Fantastic. Thanks Patrick! He got it.

Put me down for one Biqi and one Dongkui just to support the cause.

What is the plan for male trees?

Plant three Manila mangos from HD and start grafting.

A friend of mine (username Whitethorn) can't remember his password and the e-mails to reset it aren't arriving in his e-mail account. He only uses one e-mail so can't create a new account.


Citrus General Discussion / Re: Are lemon and limes usually grafted?
« on: March 21, 2021, 12:41:06 PM »
In california my memory (from touring one of the nurseries that does it) is that lemon's are rooted cuttings and everything else is grafted.

Is there any mango tasting at the mango festival in key west?

Lara Farms Homestead. Highly recommended

For fruit or just trees?

Looks like someone had too many tabs open.

Thanks. We might just do F&S in homestead and call it good for there.

I am curious regarding the west palm nurseries what times they’re open. I saw Alex’s schedule from last year I think and it was midday on the weekend and afternoon/evening on weekdays. What about Zills Excalibur etc? Will I be able to bounce from place to place all day or will I have to chose one?

Probably Stuart/west palm on June 19th & 20th. I plan to stop by Alex‘s place. Who else has mangos to taste? Excalibur? Possibly some local grocery stores with good selections?

Next weekend in the keys/Miami. There’s a mango fest in key west I believe. Also fruit and spice park? Possibly Fairchild? But I think their tastings don’t start till July.
