Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Avocado thread
« on: August 06, 2020, 08:22:07 PM »
Brad, I feel like your attacking my manliness (Lol).  Hey, no one ever called me lazy in the yard; instead, I get in trouble for getting after it too much.  But, yeah, there's something about this banana tree that's intractable for me.  It's rooted into a bunch of river rocks, bounders, brecia, maybe some cement.  I'll give it another go.  I assume digging all the surrounding pups will have some damage on the roots of the one or two I want to maintain.  I'm sure they'll bounce back in time though.  Thanks.
Our clay sucks. I had a really thick mat I spent ALOT of time on last year. Pick. Shovel. repeat. now I have one or two popping up again and need to get at it. Previous owners used to grow bananas for leaves and it's some variety that never fruits.

Naysen, how are your avocados doing this year? Mine are hating the sun. I've been working longer hours so haven't had time to address them, and it's too hot by the time I get outside but I need to paint/spray them with surround for the third time this year. Looks like they are liking the night time temps but this 100+ every day is rough
When will reed and holiday be ready in Oxnard CA?

Mine fruited early, but we are into the Persians now, so I don't even think about Pakistani.
Persian has a better taste?  I have heard fruits are easy damage and messy

You can send some to me to taste them for you.  Then I will let you know.

Newly planted avocado tree should cover with shade cloth for one year.  I had same issue before

I am excited that the weather is finally looking safe to pull all my containers out of the greenhouse and clean it up. 

Hello, will the plants grow better and faster if you leave them inside the greenhouse in summer or They like it outside the greenhouse in summer weather?

Anyone growing Pakistan mulberry in Southern California experience that the fruits are ripening early this year?   Usually it begins to ripe early June, but Mine started to ripen last week.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Shot hole disease on plum trees

Anyone has solution/cure for shot hole disease on plum trees?  I have it for 2 seasons already.  So far I spray Liquid Cop several time in winter as well as Neem Oil now at bud break but can not subdued the disease.  I also practiced picking up leaves drop in winter...

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Using coir instead of peat in 5-1-1?
« on: April 01, 2020, 03:07:15 AM »
I used pure coir premixed with perilite (made by RootFarm) to repot my tangerine tree.  The tree stunt and leaves started to turn yellow with few leaves drop after a month.  I then repotted it again with only just one part of coir mixes with soil and peat and the tree started to recover.   Since then I only use a little of coir as mixed.  I think it holds too much water and suffocates the roots

funny that the rosigold is the only tree that is 100% in ground , but not doing that great with growth and blooms.  The rest of the trees are in large pots with the bottom cut off.  not sure if the gophers are attacking the rosigold or something .  And some flowers survive the winter and is saving a small fruit.  In the green house, plantogram Mahachanok is also having little babies and also toe size fruit that is ready to pick. 

Lemon zest :

May I ask where did you buy Thai mango, kiew Savoy?

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Mandarin/Lemon recommendations
« on: March 04, 2020, 07:16:20 PM »
My favorite mandarin is Xie Shan (pronounced She Shan). Xie Shan is the largest winner at citrus taste contests.
Never heard of it.  What makes it stands out?  Love my de nules, fruits as big as my fist(Asian's fist lol). Only downside is it very seedy.  I counted 30+ seeds I. A fruit

You need to make sure its on Manilla rootstock.
Why only grafted on Manila rootstock?
