For those up north, can understand the anxiety.

Don't think it will be a problem here in the South FL area.

Maha and Honey Kiss pushing out their first blooms. We're generally couple of weeks behind the South Florida folks.

Tiberivs-
That is a gorgeous Tree you got. Looks like you did good job with the pruning.  How old? 

My mahachanok in the greenhouse went all in as well.  Every branch has  a panicle or two.   Probably about 20-30 panicle with flowers.  Don't know if the flowers will make it thru the winter.

Yeah, color me surprised to see my Cogshall and Pickering sending up pannicles quite aggressively.  I first noticed around two weeks ago.  Very unusual for me.  I don't normally see this in my yard until late January.  And last year, the Cogshall didn't bloom at all and the Pickering gave up about all of 10 fruits.  I'm in central Broward.  Warm days and a few cool nights, and wetter than usual for this time of year.  Should I be concerned about powdery mildew?

Thank you yes Iíve pruned it couple times once really aggressively left it almost only trunk and think I used to tip it in the beginning. Tree went in ground around January 2014 here is a pic . But since I got it it had and tended to grow like a bushy tree with lots of branching. I havenít done anything to it in last 2 years

Adding Aung Din and Kesar.  Hopefully, Kesar will hold some fruit this year.

Mango bloom report at my 1 1/4 acre dooryard fruit grove in Palm Beach County established 5 years ago:
Heavy bloom on Edward, Dot, Pickering, Maha Chanok, Dupuis Saigon & Lemon Zest.
Moderate bloom on Hatcher, Juliette, Honey Kiss, Angie & Nam Doc Mai;
Good bloom for the first time om Lemon Meringue, Fruit Punch & Cotton Candy.
No bloom yet on mature trees Mallika, Sweet Tart, Valencia Pride & Coconut Cream.
And young trees yet to bloom: Sugar Loaf, Orange Sherbet, Buttercream, CAC, Harvest Moon, Cushman, M4, Venus, Bailey's Marvel, Southern Blush. Juicy Peach.
Trees affected by Bacterial Black Spot in 2019 that have one last chance in 2020 before removal: Sweet Tart, Mallika, Lemon Zest & Hatcher.
Trees removed this year due to BBS fruit damage in 2018 & 2019 were Providence & Okrung.
My two most successful varieties in 2019 were Pickering & Maha Chanok (despite Maha being on the BBS susceptibility list).

Nice report Larry, thanks for posting.

Definitely a partial bloom occurring right now on mangos in south Florida, with mostly bloom-sensitive varieties achieving full blooms and others hit or miss.

Impressive list. You grow this for self consumption or sell fruit?

This winter has been very wet so lets hope this lets up for the mango bloom process. Regarding fungus etc.  In the last 15 days I think we have had rain in 11 of them.  I mow my own lawn and I really need dry grass to make it easier. Hopefully no rain or drizzle tomorrow.

My Carrie has the most blooms, then an NDM tree. I see some random blooms on other mango trees. None on Pickering so far.

So given these were conditions what should I be doing? I've sprayed sulfur a couple times so far...

I hope you get some good answers. I have no sulfur and have never used it. I just try to luck it out. Others here are more methodical.

Planting trees with Southern exposure can help evaporate off early morning dew and moisture quicker. If you plant a Julie (a fungus prone tree in South Florida) try to have plant it w where it is southern exposed to sun.

I haven't had to deal with too much excess fruit since my plantings only go back 5 years and were affected by storms in 2016 and 2017. My total harvest in 2019 was probably less than 200 usable fruit because of BBS damage. I freeze a lot of the pulp for use in ice cream and I dehydrate my favorite varieties and vacumm seal them for snacks throughout the year. This year may be better as the early bloom looks good. I'm attaching a photo taken today of my Edward tree with bloom spikes on nearly every branch.

How cold does it need to be this weekend to be bad for current blooms?

Almost all my mango trees have some bloom, some heavy.  We will be in the low 50s this weekend.  Is this a problem or is it just stimulus for more blooms on the rest of the trees?
