Is that cogong grass growing around that gem mango?
Imperata cylindrica (commonly known as cogongrass

I would take that mango off,to young of a mango tree it will slow down the tree.

Very good set on mango trees hanging over deep pond .Ugly betty,sweet tart,a fruit punch/harvest moon combo tree, lemon zest,wize,cat hoa loc.Ground is always damp and fruit quality is the cleanest and tasty.Fish poop?That water system pond and mosquito ditch is loaded with life every thing from shrimp,crayfish,turtles and literally thousands of fish.So I have to (give a hoot don't pollute)

If you get your soil to rich, not so good for mangos.They grow to much and not much stress and no fruit.Some crops are heavy feeders avocados,jaks,mamey ect.

Yes they get a lot of sleep , they go to bed with the chickens.Teas are great, a friend , Indian professor comes down for winter break and when he has a cold he makes turmeric tea with honey it's pretty good, maybe add oregano.

Hard to remember the seed acquisition ,as it was early 1990s like 91 or 92 crfg .The  seedling fruit had thumbprint  like skin not much larger than 2 inch fruit.Also made sugarlata! aka saramoya back in the 91 or 92 years.Har gave me the bug.Fun to mess around!

I did that cross back in 2003 almost lost all do to 2004 hurricane charley 150mph+.It is Tikal reticulata X cherimoya cross.I have done atemoya and reticulata cross also so far not as good.

Tikal reticulata X cherimoya cross ,red firm flesh,raspberry overtone flavor.Best quality fruit is in Winter and Spring in Florida.

74
What Har said is on the money, weak crochet on tree limbs.Some types just produce a lot of those type crochets.Even Wood weakness varies between mango varieties a lot.

75
I have the original tree of this fruit, a grafted one here in Thailand. They are soft and taste as normal noina's, small fruit with purple skin. It blooms non-stop.


Then this fruit is a big improvement over the soft fleshed fruit in Thailand.Good going luke keep up the improvements.
