Abiu

    3 responses

Dolly starts with ...
Hi,
Am having a lot of trouble with anthracnose and bacterial black spot on my KP. If it continues to be as bad as it is now, it's OUT!!
I know a few people around Hervey Bay have abius growing, but wondered if anyone knows whether or not they fruit successfully here.
I grew them up at Cape Trib, and they were wonderful, but that's a way different climate to here.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello Dolly,
Need more info on KP. Is that Kangaroo Paw , or a variety of Abiu?Three ref. books failed to come up with THAT name , but the chemical cures for anthracnose is as varied as the plants that suffer from it.Mancozeb and Copper seem to be the most common.If it IS kangaroo Paw, watering from above will cause that problem..hope this helps

I'm assuming KP is Kensington Pride Mango aka Bowen mango. Abiu should grow well in Hervey Bay, and KPs are a dime a dozen in season - so give the Abiu a go!

Maybe join the Wide Bay branch of RFA and ask them about others growing Abiu in your area : http://rarefruitaustralia.org/

You might want to try liquid copper fungicide. I got some here in Miami, FL about 25 yrs ago, but I don't know if it is sold in Australia. It worked well on a mango I had anthracnose problems with, but when H. Andrew in 1992 knocked it down, I replaced that tree with two others that are anthracnose resistant.
