I just harvested some Glenn mango from my freezer (last year's crop)  Yum!  ;-)   Still beats grocery store mangos.  Rosigolds and Spirit of 76 are getting close.

You lrobably could have harvested the Glen last month.  Lol

My first PSM. The rest are about a month or 2 behind as this one was a wild winter blooming.

Dee that's a nice mango cage...it must have been difficult to make those. It looks like it would do the trick and protect them from squirrels and raccoons but definitely looks like a project making a lot of them to protect most of the fruits...

Maybe.  I was busy harvesting frozen Angie, Spirit of 76, Pickering, and some other mangos.  Making room in the freezer chest for this years mango harvest.

My first, second, and third mangos were PPK.

The tree is very small, but the flavor was surprisingly good.

I have a few PPK hanging, it will be my first time ever having one. I don't want to harvest them incorrectly. What would you suggest I look for?

Let it turn yellow/gold.  Do not harvest green.

Just wait for the color and then harvest. They won't be really soft yet on the tree when color changes to yellow/gold

I check my tree once a day, and see a dramatic change in color in that time period.

Whereas my Spirit of 76 mangos change some time between midnight and one a.m.   That gives the raccoons plenty of time to harvest the mango before I do.

I have a Labrador Retriever dog that patrols for raccoons, squirrels, possum, and snakes.  She has a doggy door, so she can match the hours of her adversaries.

Thank goodness for the rain, 115 brush fires in the state of Fl, Ide make sure to drop some mangoes of at the local fire station this season so that they know how special your trees are in the event of a brush fire near your farm.  Nothing makes a connection to a firemans brain like free food lol.

Yeah that's an awesome cage. How do you attach it? Make it or bought it?

Here  is the first ever Cac mango from my tree. Never eatenone; planted it purely based on reputation. From what I have seen, it is a really good producer and does well without spraying in northwest broward.
