Mango - Keitt (Seedling) 7/10

Nitro1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3623 days 2hrs

Comments: -

I had a run on mangoes last year - every time time I cut a seed open they were growing. I tried the putting a couple on top of a glass of water with toothpicks to hold them up. These ones died and rotted.

So the rest went into the ground and a few weeks later there were 5 up.  They are in a moderately sunny spot, protected from midday sun with dappled afternoon sun. They get a light watering every morning when it's hot and every second or third day in winter.

Planted: 2008

Height 25 Centimetres

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 4

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Fertiliser or Organics Used: seasol every 2 weeks

Pest Control:

On of my babies got eated by snails and was too badly damaged to save. I almost lost another one to curl grub. So now I have to remember to put out snail bait. I check all plants for the grubs and pulled any out. So now keeping an eye open for any sign

Hi there, I noticed that you grew a Keitt mango from seed. I have done the same but still early days yet. Did you ever get any fruit from yours?

Hi, My dog ended up eating my mangoes :-/ However, before she did it actually DID start to produce fruit!! I lost the first crop and the dog got to it before it flowered/fruited again. Lol, time for take two!

squash (Seedling) 6/10

Nitro1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3623 days 2hrs

Comments: -

My spaghetti Squash! Has been growing for months but it seems to like the spot it is in now as it is finally fruiting! It is in a vegie patch out the back and gets a moderate amount of sun. Our fence blocks the light a little so it does still get some shade for part of the day.

Fruiting Months June, July, August

Planted: 2009

Height 0.5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 3

First Fruited: 3 Months From Seed

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: usually seasol

Pest Control:

I am trying not to use any chemical sprays. My biggest issue has been powdery mildew. Tried milk and water spray but I think I might need to get something a bit stronger!!

Organic Status:Partially Organic

Question:

Are there any really effective natural mildew treatments that anyone knows about?

While on my honeymoon the garden got overrun... with everything from weeds to flowers. Unfortunately the squash got suffocated between borage and peas... :( I did however get to try the only fruit that ripened on it and was still there. Very nice baked with lots of salt!!!
