Tropical Fruit Discussion / Worried about flooding
« on: May 13, 2021, 08:15:04 PM »
Hey guys,

I have an acre to plant on - 1/2 is all mango trees and the other 1/2 is a mix of things like banana, jakfruit, barbados cherry, and june plum. Last year, heavy rain caused the latter 1/2 to flood. This resulted in losing a couple avocado trees, dragonfruit, jamaican cherry, pomegranate, and one of the jakfruit trees. I guess there is not much I can do for the trees that are still alive. But for the future - will I be fine by planting trees on a mound? I wanted to plant avocados, lychees, soursop, and many more types of trees that hate having their feet wet. If I'll be fine by planting on a mound, does anyone have a good resource for me to know how big of a mound to make?

Thank you!

I know it is still early for soursop but wondering if anybody would be willing to sell me one in South Florida.

Happy Saturday!

I am in the process of putting a garden on my property. I hastily purchased several sweet potato slips online but will not have the garden bed ready when they arrive, so I was going to put them straight into the ground. I live in Bokeelia, FL where there are wild pigs, rabbits, and peacocks that ravage through gardens. Do any of you have any suggestions for a cheap fence or net that I can use to keep the critters out? Once I have my first sweet potato harvest, I was planning on taking slips and putting them in the garden bed where I will have a better setup, but for now would prefer something on the cheaper side.

I appreciate any help!

Hi!

I am looking to get a soursop (Guanabana) tree for my property in Lee County, FL (Zone 10a) but I am not finding a lot of information on different varieties. Iíve read that some varieties are sweet and others are not, so I wanted to make sure that I get a variety that is sweet. I would really appreciate information on some varieties and where I can buy that variety of tree.

Thank you in advance!
