Many read­ers ask­ing about their fruit trees

The Palm Beach Post - Residences - - Front Page -

Many calls on how to take care of your fruit trees — es­pe­cially those mango and av­o­cado ba­bies that are in full bloom.

One caller showed me his pic­tures of av­o­cado trees that he in­her­ited when he bought his home. They were young trees about 6 to 8 feet tall with leaves and, most im­por­tantly, blos­soms.

Sixty per­cent of the av­o­ca­dos grown from seed will not pro­duce fruit. With blos­soms on this man’s ba­bies, they should give him some fruit this year and if he treats them right by prun­ing them this sum­mer, and fer­til­iz­ing them with bone and blood meal, they will be great pro­duc­ers and of­fer a pretty land­scape as well.

My toma­toes are in, so we had fresh toma­toes the other night for sup­per. You can’t beat the taste of a tomato picked from the vine, wiped free of any dirt, and eaten as you con­tinue to har­vest enough for the evening meal!

If you have any ques­tions or prob­lems, give me a call at 561-744-4750 or e-mail me at cleren5@aol.com.
