I reckon beans are an AP winner crop.

I agree, my best 2 produce so far have been beans and cucumbers!

J, hope you don't mind this here, if you do, split it to a new thread.

i was checking out my worm farm yesterday and saw some shoot that had germinated in the second tray (this sometimes happens as many of the veggeis i put in there have seeds

I pulled them out to see what they were, and there was a big MANGO pit on the end of it ;)

has been in there at least 4 weeks, not sure how hard they are to germinate normally.

I popped in in the gravel grow bed for a laugh. I can only hope it is KP as from my reading its the only one that grows true to type from seed.

Got any knowledge for me?

KP mangoes are mostly poly-embryonic so you can get lots of seedlings from the one seed , just split them up early on and you will be right.
They are easy to germinate! And will grow V quickly in the right conditions. Not sure how well they will enjoy melbourne as most mangoes have allergic reaction to striped scarves and 4n20 pies (haha)(sorry couldn't resist! they can tolerate frosts, don't know if it is a prefered condition tho) Still have my doubts about growing them in AP . But have fun, and prune heavy!
Yeah KP can throw true to form but.......there's KPs and there's KPs yeah?
We had 300 odd KPs in the orchard behind the house and I can say for a fact that there was a great range of differences in the trees and the fruits within the same variety. Some trees produce Heaps of good sized fruit, some trees don't! Some fruit colour up better than the neighbouring trees, We had one tree that would hold about a dozen fruit on each pannacle but the fruit would only get to the size of a tennis ball before maturing. they still tasted good mind you. In one of our other orchards there was one trees fruit that would get a great blush on it even tho they were green and hard as Rackarock!
Anyway have fun with the project!
If you are serious about keeping it , give us a hoy when they get a bit bigger and I will see about sending down some cuttings to graft onto them. They will be from the best producing tree in the orchard and will bring the timeline for fruit ahead by a few years.
Cheers Axl

Thanx AXE (you'll have to change your user name again ;))

I'm hoping its KP, but i have no way of knowing.

I may have caught it too late in the worm farm, but i'll leave it in the GB for a while...................

Will keep you posted.

Um because they will grow straight up and up and up with all that lovely fish water! you will need to prune them to get/keep them in a user friendly size / shape, kids need straight out branches to climb in :lol:
