HiThe tips of the branches of my mango tree (pina colada) are getting dark and the panicles are drying. What does it stem from?Thanks
Looks like Powdery Mildew (PM), definitely some sort of mold or fungus. Not sure how susceptible PC is to PM, some varieties fight it off and hold onto their flowers/fruit better than others. It can lay waste to an entire tree's flowers/tiny fruit, but it seems like most the time some amount of fruit hangs on. You can spray sulfur/potassium carbonate as a preventative/treatment or try trimming it out. I've been trimming this year, it's definitely working in controlling spread, but it's time consuming (I'll probably spray next season).

I had sprayed neem oil already. I will spray sulfur after a week. Probably, pollinators will keep away for a while... Thank you.

Hi All,

The branch tips and panicles of my pina colada mango tree are getting dark and drying. Is this a kind of fungus or am I having other issue?

Thank you.

I tasted a hint of lemon when my Youghan's Gold fruited two years ago.
Last year it was damaged from the wind and I cut it way back and didn't fruit.
This year it has some small fruit already and I am hoping to try it again.
So far I have had supersweet and YG and it was better in my opinion

I heard YG was a good one but didn't know it had a lemon taste. I am looking for a grafted tree actually.

I have only tasted 2 types, both at the Fruit & Spice Park, and I personally could not tell them apart:
Redlands
Bonita Springs

Both had a slight lemony flavor to me.

I have a Redlands tree. I am glad it has a lemony taste.

Hi

Can anyone recommend me a white sapote variety with citrus/lemon taste that will grow well in FL ?

Thanks

Spraying the foliage is enough and definitely use a spreader/sticker/extender. I use Nufilm. Also, using a Fogger will create a must that penetrates the foliage better and itís faster and is more efficient with the reagents.

Simon

Thank you Simon. Are there instructions on it as to how much to mix it with other pesticides such as Azera? Also, Nufilm is not available on Amazon or Ebay. Is there another organic brand you can recommend?

Thank you all.

I saw a big umbrella shaped ice cream mango tree in, I guess, a 100 gal pot. It looked very pretty and dense with those slender leaves like a big bonzai.

No. I am just afraid of letting solid fertilizer touch the base of the DFs and causing them to rot, or disturbing the root system while mixing the fertilizer into the soil because they have little space in pots.

Ok maybe I shouldn't admit this but sometimes I put on so much slow release vigoro that I can barely see the soil anymore. There seems to be no limit to how much fertilizer they can take. I've never even seen young shoots burn from it. This said, I only apply when it is warm enough for them to grow.

Thanks K-Rimes. Which slow release vigoro do you use?

An expensive solution. Dragonfruits for me are some of my lowest effort plants and get the least expensive and least time intensive solutions - just gobs of slow release fertilizer and chicken manure.

If you're really set on liquid, you can use pretty much any of them, but I would choose the cheapest possible like General Hydroponics. I have tried tons of fertilizers for indoor plants of uh, various types, and there is very little difference in the end product.

The issue with liquid fertilizer is in fact you're just paying for water and the shipping thereof.

I agree. Even though you buy it from the store...

Old trick for most Cacti if you can stomach it-

Urine

Should be accomplished at night when no one is around!   ;D

Yes, I agree. Can always use a fish/kelp emulsion for vegetative growth which is water soluble.

OP, what are you trying to accomplish? Something to run through a drip line?


No. I am just afraid of letting solid fertilizer touch the base of the DFs and causing them to rot, or disturbing the root system while mixing the fertilizer into the soil because they have little space in pots. So I thought, liquid fertilizer would be a safer option.

15
Thanks everybody! If I use Azera, is it enough just to spray the foliage? Or should I drench the soil too?

16
Hi

Can anyone recommend me a water-soluble organic dragon fruit fertilizer?

Thank you!

I never had luck with neem oil either, but horticultural oil did better though it wasn't very effective on Guava and I wound up clearing scale by hand on guava and until recently I gave up owning most guava. I now have a Ruby supreme I'm going to have one more go at, I'll see what happens this time but I'll add Dr. Bronners home made insecticidal soap into the regimen.  .

Have you ever tried malathion-oil? I have never used it. It was recommended in old threads on this topic though.

18
Hi All,

Is there any easy and effective way yet to rid green scales and white flies, especially, from guava trees? Neem oil doesn't seem to work well...

Thanks

Plinia clausa and inflata have gigantic fruit and are supposedly delicious- Hapa Joe and Nate just did a review of the former but the latter might do better in your climate, especially if you want to put them outside

Wow! Those fruits look interesting!

Whats your goal in the 4 additional vars?

different flavors? different blooming times? will these be going in the GH as well?

Are you open to other Plinia/Myrciaria or just Jabos

Green house? No, I will put them outside.
Especially looking for precocious ones with larger fruits. I am open to Plinia/Myrciaria too.

This could help narrow it down for you https://jaboticaba.in/jaboticaba-list/

I agree with Mike, the red is a beast, so much fruit non-stop, nice looking tree also.

My personal favs are the PDM(blue velvet) and Spirito, they both put out super colorful leaves when they flush

Which Otto do you have?

It is Otto Andersen branca vinho.
Spirito is Grimal right?  Does Blue velvet fruit look and taste like Vexator?

Also when do I eat it?

I ate my scarlettes when they were red, heavy, chunky, juicy and big.  ;D  For black varieties, it should be totally black, I guess...
I was tempted to wait till it fell off the tree. Would it be spoiled by then?

I wouldn't wait! They may go bad.
