Default Mangos

Yesterday in the chat room I was encouraged to start a thread about mangos. Anyone else here grow them or is maybe interested in them?

I have had a couple of mango trees myself. At one point I had 'Cogshall', 'Glenn', 'Mallika', 'Lancetilla', "Ice Cream', and 'Carrie'. For a number of reasons I no longer have any of those trees in my personal possession anymore but I have started a number of seedlings I plan on grafting.

momoese, here is the link:

Cultivars


Lorax, do you have any trouble with anthracnose/fungus with Julie? Here in Florida Julie is difficult to grow and get good production from due to the high humidity encouraging fungus growth. Its a very tasty mango though and is popular with Jamaicans especially.

Here's another link you might find interesting. Its a series of videos by Dr. Jonathan Crane of the TREC center in Homstead. Each video is short and about a specific cultivar or about tree management:

FruitScapes Video Blog UF/IFAS/TREC

there's a video on grafting mangos at the bottom of this page for those interested:

Squam, I have never had that problem. I'm in high humidity, but my trees are cultured alongside coffee and papaya, and this seems to give them a higher fungal resistance than if they were standing alone. It works the same way for my bananas - a bit of careful culture and detrashing, and I have no problem with Sigatoka although it seems to be endemic in garden plots here.

captof, has your Rosigold fruited early? I've read they fruit as early as March.

Also, how long have you had your trees? And how would you rate their flavor/production?

Bailey's Marvel "supposedly" is somewhat cold hardy. At least that's what I've read.

Hi guys!

I have a Julie and a Lancitilla. Both flowered and fruited this past spring but then a rainey spell caused all the fruit to split and fall! The fruit were about 3" long at the time.

I found the Julie in a friends greenhouse who was no longer able to care for her Orchids and other tropicals. It was severely neglected with few leaves.
Well, 2 years and some better care and it is still only 4 ft tall but also 4ft wide and nicely filled out. Should have some fruit next year!

Had a Nam Doc Mai that was the bigggest "scale" magnet! It was just covered and the Lancitilla was right next to it had none! I was constantly spraying it down with insecticidal soap to keep the scale and sooty mold at bay! It got some rot or fungus and died from the top down.???

Can't wait for next year!

Margie

hey thanks for starting this thread Squam, I learned something for some reason I had it in my head that there were only three different varieties of Mangoes.

Thanks again and keep the info coming.

Today Oct/31/2009
The growing was massive this summer.!
Taken from a 12’ ladder.

Sunlight in the backyard is getting limited for the rest of the plants, maybe frequents trimmings will be the way to raise the mangos without limited them growing…
Any suggestions for ways of trimming?
Ideal height for them to keep producing fruit. and best feeding Methods !
Maybe 2010 is going to be the year !!
Thanks,


Is getting a little crowded.
Mangos are catching up with the Praying Hand bananas!
