First flowers on a mango, Woo Hoo!
« on: November 16, 2018, 11:28:20 AM »
Was out in the yard yesterday and noticed my Rosigold Mango tree was starting to push flower pannicles. Hope I can keep it warm enough through the winter to get some early fruit! March/April would be awsome!:) Anyone else in Florida seeing bloom yet?

My mango trees been flowering and forming little mangoes in Southern Cal Zone 9B which I wish they didn't since I planted them in September from 7-15 gallon pots. The branches are too skinny to support any fruit.

My Manzanillo is covered all over with flower panicles. I'll post some pics later.  ;)

What kind of mango? CA is tough because its cool enough to make them flower almost all year long , from what I understand.

This is a Maha Chanok, we are having lows of 45-55F for last few weeks.

Nice mango selection. It has a wonderful aroma and tastes fantastic! I have one about 9 ft. tall and still waiting for it to flower for the first time. Hopefully this year ;D You might wait until your fruits get to pea or acorn size and then pick them off. this may mitigate the plant trying to flower again.

Nice!! Another of the benefits of having 270 different varieties...  :D :D. Alex, when do you think you will have scions available again?  I'm assuming some of your newer varieties will not flower this year. Will you be selling scions of those earlier than after harvest? I was interested in Orange Essence, M-4, and honey kiss. Possibly some others. Thanks!

April or May depending on if we have another late blooming year. Wouldn’t surprise me if we did as we do not get Winters in south Florida anymore.

All those ought to be available.

Thanks a lot, Alex! I'll check back with you then or email you on the website ;D Now, have to figure out how to try to protect the blooms on the mangoes. It's supposed to get down to 39 degrees tonight and 41 tomorrow night. I will string old style C7 and C9 lights on the tree to help keep it warm. We will see... I was also thinking about spraying with copper for protection of the flowers from anthracnose on the Rosigold. Good idea or not? What do you guys think?

And going right back into the 80s by Saturday. Check the projected temps for the first week of December (highs and lows) and compare them to historical average.

Are these flowers going to hold mature fruits in Summer? I'm asking because half of my mango trees are having flower now -- not opened yet -- and I don't know if they will make fruits in summer. Typical flowers in March-April are the real fruit making ones, in SoCal climate.

How big is the Guava tree? How long has it been in the ground?

Is the Guava Mango the same that PlantOGram calls GuaMango? The fruit shape they show on their site doesn't look like the one Walter Zill is holding in a Truly Tropical video.

Also, PlantOGram describes the tree as a semi-dwarf, is that statement accurate? or again, are they referring to a different mango variety?

Thanks for the clarification!

I don’t know if what they’re selling is Walter Zill’s ‘Guava’, but if it is then I would say “No”.

Thanks Squam!

That's what I thought based on Truly Tropical's video.

The tree growing in my yard doesn't show any signs of being a dwarf or semi-dwarf.

So these flowers will hold fruits through the winter and ripe summer, in FL? I'm not sure the same in SoCal for mangoes having flowers now in December. Could someone confirm this? All of my fruits were from flowers in March and April.
