Mango blooming now.
« on: December 04, 2017, 08:15:29 PM »
Surprised to see some panicles at the bottom half of my Himsagar. Anyone else's mango in bloom?


My Himsagar is very prone to fungus. It seems to be unaffected.

I have five mature fruits on the Choc Anon part of my multi-graft tree.  Dwarf Hawaiian and Ugly Betty have started to flower in my yard.

I have a handful with flowers. Kesar, juicy peach come to mind. Should I keep them on during winter or pinch them off? Do mangoes need a resting or dormant season? This would be my first winter really paying attention to them.

In St. Petersburg: Pickering in bloom, Mallika buds too small to tell. Maha buds and Cogshall smaller still, may take another week or so to be sure. Neelam, surprisingly, has flushed new growth.
Rain expected Friday-Saturday, then a "cold" spell for our area. May trigger more flowering.

Yeah looks like we are in for a proper extended cold snap reaching down to south Florida , hopefully that should get things going in my yard soon with mangos, and get the lychees some much needed chill hours...

Their forecasting 3 nights in the mid-upper 40s (sat-mon) and the rest of next week's nights in the 50s !

10-14 nights below 60F would be more ideal, but for most areas this should be enough to ignite some significant bloom. Some cultivars might still need more of a nudge though.
