At 17.5 x 20 you would have years of plenty of room between trees. Space like that could be used for intercrops of shorter term plants or trees like banana, papaya, guava, etc. Some even try planting close and removing every other mango tree but others I've seen try that became attached and couldn't bear to cut out 1/2 their trees. There is a lot of work involved in preparing land, setting up irrigation and all to put in small trees so widely spaced, it seems like using that space for something beneficial would make sense.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Lemon Zest Seedling Project

Guys, do we now have firm consensus over what is true clone in poly-embryonic mango seedlings?  My LZ is into its 4th year now and looking very healthy. Although leaves are not like Lemon Zest (wavy), the smell of leaf sap is very strong and citrusy more than LZ.

Has anyone successfully fruited LZ seedling yet? what is the verdict? Mine might fruit next year or who knows when. Usually in CA we get trees to bloom from 2 years on.
I remember once i read a scientific research about identifiying nucellar and zygotic seedlings from poly seeds, and the experiences showed that for some cases the zygotic was the tallest seedling while in oher cases it was the smallest seedling and for other cases it was the middle one. I can't find this study, but since then i stopped believing that there is an absolute truth about the size of the zygotic seedling and started thinking as simon-grow does : leaving all the seedlings grow and figure out later :)

Have a question Amrapali and Banganapali are the same mango?

No.

But there are debates [edit: amongst my Indian friends] about other mango varieties being the same as banganpalli (like baneshan)

The first of my PlantsMap tags just came in... super excited!  Our community does a Spring Garden Tour and my goal is to have all of my trees tagged on the walking path I built before the 2019 tour.
