My Potted Sugar Apple Trees (Man Cau)

I have a lot of tropical fruit trees and I have quite a few sugar apple trees (5 +) because the fruit is my family favorite. There are a few variety of sugar apple but the best one is the one that is chewy with more flesh than seed ratio. The green variety seems to be the best but the kampong mauve sugar apple looks very pretty. So I have both varieties and also planted a few green variety from seeds. They are pretty easy to grow and fruit in 2-3 years. I think I will get a lot of kampong mauve sugar apple this year. :)

My Potted Mango Trees

I'm so excited as my two potted mangoes are fruiting. I have the Carrie and Nam Doc Mai mango trees. Got the trees from Nipa Hut Garden last year (May 2010). Both tree flowered and fruiting. I think I will only leave one fruit on each tree if the fruits stay. But I think most of the fruits will drop by themselves since the tree can not support all of them. As you can see the flowers on each tree is different. The Carrie flowers are closer together in clusters compared to the Nam Doc Mai. The color of the flowers are also different.
