Itís funny how the pruner left the small panicle of fruit with no leaves to support it. What was your original intent with the pruning job, to significantly bring down the height of your tree?

Simon

Keeping the tree below 7 ft. (between 5 - 6 would be awesome) was the intent.

Just out of curiosity, do you have a "before assault" picture? You should not prune while the tree is setting fruit, if want any chance of it ripening. From the looks of it now, I would cut off that top portion "Y" just above where the other leafed branches originate. You should still have a nicely shaped tree. Carrie is not known for growing very tall anyway. Try to keep the center open for good airflow and sunlight entrance. Try to prune out large branches only after you harvest the fruit. Maybe start to tip your branches also to create more framework. Good choice on variety! :)

Thanks for the tips, much appreciated!

Seems to me they didn't finish the job.. after all it is a Carrie mango...

lol

taste is in the buds of the taster

I'm open to entertaining mango trees other than carrie and kesar.  I hear mango sherbet and coconut cream are popular, although I've read conflicting things regarding the availability of the mango sherbet.

Here are a couple more images of the tree.

Although itís not obvious in these pictures, in the one of the whole tree, there is a branch on the bottom portion of the tree facing the camera that I attempted to whip graft with duct tape *cringe*.  There was a 5-week old, 3-4 inch long stub there from a branch that had gotten injured during transportation prior to planting.  I sharpened this stub at an angle, and approximated to it one of the pruned branches sharpened at a similar angle.

Thanks!

Sure does suck! This is a Carrie mango tree. I'll take a whole-tree image tomorrow.

Hi everyone, Iím Abu Isa, transplanted from the north to Palm Beach.  Iím a dad, husband, physician, first time homeowner, and hoping to be a mango farmer (in my backyard), just as my dad was back in the old country.  Now that I can finally plant my very own mango trees, Iím looking forward to learning a lot from, and contributing to, this forum. I do what I can to minimize my carbon footprint. Iím a fan of renewable energy, enjoy driving my Tesla, and have an interest in tech, science, and sci-fi. On any given weekend youíre likely to find me with my family at Lion Country Safari, Palm Beach Zoo, LegoLand, or Kennedy Space Center, or exploring farms from Palm Beach to Homestead. Future hobbies Iíd like to learn- farming, fishing, boating. Cheers  ;D

Hi all, this tree was planted in my backyard about six weeks ago, purchased from Excalibur fruit trees. A few days ago, as you can see in the picture, the tree was assaulted by an overzealous/inexperienced pruner. Any advice as to what steps I may need to take? Thanks!
