Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lychee Erinose Mite ,Homestead
« on: August 12, 2020, 02:41:02 PM »

Dear Tropical Fruit Growers,


The Lychee Erinose Mite (LEM) has been found in multiple locations in Miami-Dade County, including a commercial grove in Homestead. This is an extremely damaging lychee pest and should be taken very seriously.

The attached documents contain our current recommendations to manage this pest. There is also a document on Frequently Asked Questions, as well as a label for a pesticide that has recently been labeled for control of LEM.


It is very important that you frequently scout for this pest and alert me and FDACS if you believe you have the pest. Our contact information is in the attached documents.


Please contact me with any questions.


Thank you,

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Phoenix mango
« on: July 19, 2019, 08:58:46 AM »
So I had my first Phoenix mango off a small tree ,the only one on that tree.It had started to change color so picked it let set 3 days and.... I think it is in the top 5 for me flavor was like a mix of bombay or white pari crossed with dot.Also no anthracnose so very clean,now waiting for the other tree to ripen with 5 on it. Nice complex flavor very sweet not to much acid good balance.

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Telfairia pedata
« on: February 08, 2019, 08:56:42 AM »
Telfairia pedata anyone ever mess with this vine?I put two on a mango and some on jaks that i didn't like.The one on the mango I sawed off because it's to aggressive and the sawed off ends  rerooted to the soil, it's to bad  because one was flowering and was female. Seems much more aggressive than ugu TelfairiaOccidentalis.
