You can spray to kill scale, but it is less costly and less polluting to prevent it.
Decrease the amount of Nitrogen you feed it and increase potassium, secondary and trace minerals. Scale insects love new fresh growth on over fertilized plants.

One single Mango in the first season!
Plant in Sep/2006
'Jean Ellen' (Florida)
'Jean Ellen' was selected as a home garden variety due to its early season, heavy production and its multiple bearing habit. The fruit are 300 g, oblong to lanceolate with a lemon yellow color. There is no blush to the fruit. The skin is smooth and typically has numerous corky lenticels and due to its habit of fruiting during the windy Spring, there are typically visible abrasions on the surface of the fruit. The flesh is an opaque yellow and there is a small amount of rough fiber near to the seed. The flavor is classified in the 'Alphonso' class, with a sweet, simple flavor of tropical spice. The tree grows easily and is semi-dwarf and precocious. The tree and fruit are moderately tolerant of disease and there are typically multiple blooms during the year. The season is from April to June in South Florida.

Sobe,

if you are spraying with Copper it is best to continue spraying after the flowers bloom and set fruit. This discourages the fungus from attacking the flowers and thus preventing fruit set, and prevents the fruit from getting the fungus once it sets.

By the way, what was your opinion of the Jean Ellen fruit?

Great pics in this thread! I love mangoes and I've tried to grow them several times but I have some issues.

At first everything is looking good when it produces its first leaves, but then... It has never produced a new set of leaves because the new ones just curls and falls off. They never get big and the plant just keeps shooting out new fresh leaves which fall off a short time later. Later on the whole top goes black and dries out before all of its remaining leaves falls off.

What's really happening here? Could it be fungus? What do you do to prevent this?

Default Re: Mangos

Just joining the mango community with this "Gomera-1" cultivar. I got it from the Canary Islands, Spain and this cultivar is used there and also in mainland Spain as rootstock for mango trees.

The shop who sold it to me (canarius.com mangifera-cv-gomera-1 claims in their blog that this cultivar grows and fruits (!) in southern France Canarius Blog - Mango varieties. So I decided to try it out. I think I will keep it in a pot for another winter and put it to the ground in 2012. I think I'll plant it at our holiday house on Skiathos Island, because it rarely goes down below freezing there.

I was actually thinking about getting a mango tree. The only doubt i have is how well they will be able to handle the wind here. We have easily had 60 mph winds in my area recently.

I have a choc anon mango, It has produced fruit in autumn only for me. It will flower in july or august and I'll start spraying with copper and serenade. The mangos are on the smaller side, but do taste great.

I won't even fool with any other mangos because my best friends are the Erickson's and they have 40 acres of mangos and I can get one of their any time I want.

Here's my germination setup. I put them against a south-facing wall in my backyard. The plastic bags are to retain humidity, and I poked some air holes in them.. The nighttime lows are still in the 50s, should I bother bringing them in at night?
