Ok, Bryan.....now that is the definitive description for posting pictures. Well done. Once day, when the good folks at Grden Web, get off their duffs and allow Murahilin to do the FAQ questions, this post should be the answer to that particular frequently asked question about posting pictures.
This 5 year-old citrus tree bought from Lowe's 5 years ago for $1.00 has produced 3 years in a row.It is garage kept in the winter till april 15,never loosing its leaves.
Bryan, i am indebted to you. First try and i am in,thanks to your super clear instructions. Appreciate it a lot!!

Way to go Bob!

And let me guess - Valencia.....
My orange tree is a page orange. After reading all the issues about mango's and atemoya's i am getting curious about growing these also. When i bought my tree i was not aware about a tropical garden web group.I did not know anything about soils. I used a potting mix that a garden center use here in my neighbourhood, and then kept it mulch with a hardwood mulch (chips). I have used any kind of fertilizer available that i bought for my other tree's(oriental persimmon,pears,plums,paw-paw's and a few others). I have to say that i had to water this tree a lot last summer. I am ready to buy a couple of mango tree's to try. If i do not have any luck i can allways sell my property here and buy the house right next to hmhausman,maybe he do not care.
I hear page is an excellent orange.
mangos have less pest problems then citrus here, between canker, tristeza, blight, greening; dooryard growers have practically given up on citrus. Whenever I see pictures of loaded citrus trees in California I am amazed. of course mangos are less cold hardy, protect them it freeze and it should be fine right along side your citrus tree.
try to find a pickering mango, Its a true dwarf and reliable producer of excellent flavored fruit.

Page is one of the best tasting of all the citrus I have ever tasted. I am growing it. Unfortunately, my tre is is total decline and barely produces any fruit anymore. Nice to see a well grown and vibrant citrus tree. Thanks for posting it. I'm jealous.
I wonder if its the nematodes? spykes nursery has huge beautiful 10ft+ green citrus trees in 40 gallon containers.
