Is it true that the fruit are bland in taste. I believe they are a Myrtaceae that is close to Eugenia in many ways.

Rob I was wondering mostly what you thought of the fruit.  And if they are selling trees now.  I somehow ended up with one of these trees, not sure where I got it.  But it is one of the better growers here.  Hasn't set fruit yet but its growing really nice.  And I need to top work some seedlings and want to use this one if you think it tastes good I will probably use it.

Ahhh, I was wondering if you meant fruit or trees...yes, ZHPP released the trees.  Its definitely worth growing and from what I have direct knowledge/involvement,  most who have had it like it very much.

Rob, just so you know, whenever you recommend something I usually plant it out soon after. Thank you. Also would you recommend p-22.

For thinning and picking I use Okatsune Japan No. 306 Thinning shears with Rounded Tip.For bigger cuts I'm now using all electric pruning shears ,I just need speed as I am doing thousands of cuts a day."The need for speed",they even have carbon fiber poles,you think they can pull some low 9s ?

Spraying all your mangos' foliage with a multiple micronutrient mix is usually good, if not mixed too strong.
Har, thanks a lot for answering every question.
Is this one good micro elements complex ?








And I red on this forum about 90% of questions your recommendation is cooper spray. How often we need to spray with cooper? Can I substitute spraying sulfur or this fungicide  which seems like organic friendly version. And how often to use all fungicides





And one very last question.  What is this on my peach cobbler?
And if I need to do something in this case?
Thanks, thanks, thanks for your expertise.
Irene.

When do your lychees bloom in FL?  Lychees are still in bloom here.

I have seen them bloom from December to April in my part of the state. Typically they bloom in January and February. South Florida is usually 2-3 weeks ahead of us here.

Ripe and delicious!  They do have a rosewater flavor.  I think they may be Brewster, as they drip juice as you peel them.  Very big seed.


They look like Mauritius to me. Brewster is fairly sour if the entire fruit is not bright red.
