Mangos Grown in Melbourne

    6 responses

Markmelb starts with ...
The Gomera 1
Probably the first Canary Island Mango grown in Australia and was done in Melbourne from seed ~ took 4 years ~ Small fruit but with Excellent flavour and low fibre although expected it to be turpy & fibrous ~ we were hoping it could be more cold tolerant for grafting and it appears to be so far with no winter mollycoddling.

Hello Mark,

I am in Melbourne not far from you.

I have a standard kensington pride in the ground going well (second year) and will later in the year put a royal red in and give it a go.

Can I ask, where you got your gomera-1 seed from. I have been keen to grow it for a while; due to reported hardiness.

Kind Regards.

Frank - a friend imported seeds from europe a few years ago when it was easier - our plan is to try grafting KP etc to it to get earlier flushes - we ourselves are needing our seed so not able to trade as yet as is a long term project - we may have grafted plants oneday available????

No probs Mike - head to Oz Rare Fruit on FB? May have wood in time as plants are still only 1.7 mt in their pots. They are poly also as you may know. How have the new Zills gone so far?

Most of my Zill are now nearly 3 & 4 year old with nearly all flowering last year.... Due to size & weather no fruit set..... This year things will be different as the trees are much bigger & if required I will remove flowers if too early & let them re-flower later to ensure fruit set...... If your up this way in around mid Jan/20 we should have a few to taste.......
