Just added this beauty to my small but growing collection. I know citrus isnít the smartest tree to plant in south Florida because of their disease issues - but apparently this variety is more tolerant . Anyone have any success with sugar belles in Florida? Chime in please. Thanks

Tropical Fruit Discussion / New home for trees!
« on: October 09, 2019, 08:58:35 PM »
I recently moved to Davie in August ,  all these trees have been with me in containers between 1-4 years. My goal throughout the years was to train them to be low branching and compact . I put trees in ground in early September they look happy and seem to be adapting well , Iím blessed to finally have a place to call my own! Love this forum!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lemon Zest and Powdery Mildew
« on: September 20, 2018, 12:02:48 AM »
Hi all, I have an opportunity to get a really nice healthy looking lemon zest mango tree  , itís about 8 ft tall and 6 ft wide, i have tasted lemon zest before at Benders about 2 years ago and thought it was a great mango. Iíve been reading and hearing that it has issues with powdery mildew. If I where to get it, will I put my other trees at risk of getting powdery mildew as well? Is it worth the maintenance and spraying regimen? Or should I just pass on it? Thoughts please!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Jabo and dragon fruit
« on: May 11, 2018, 07:16:10 PM »
hello, I have a 5 year old jabo in a container, Iím not sure what variety it is. Can you guys tell by the leaves or bark? It hasnít fruited yet 😒. Also I had a couple questions regarding dragon fruit - a friend gave me a few large pieces from his place , I did the best I could standing and tying them up. They had flowers last year but no fruit before I transplanted to my house. My questions are - when should I expect to flower again and will the flower on new growth only? Thanks and have a great weekend !

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Bangkok Thailand Fruits and Buggies
« on: May 08, 2018, 07:07:32 PM »
Hi everyone! just want to share some photos my dad recently sent me from a local market in Bangkok, he is visiting a friend.  Maybe one day Iíll make the trip with my wife when our kids get a little older. Does anyone know if he is allowed to ship me any seeds?

Iíve had my Alano Sapodilla for a little over  3 years, I had it in ground for 1 1/2 year then dug it out , pugged, and put in a container when I moved. Itís never flowered or beared fruit for the obvious reasons, but could this finally be?! I love this little tree so much, is it showing me some love?? I hope so!! Weíve been through a lot together! LoL
